Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

For no terribly good reason

A couple of classic comedy sketches I've been thinking about lately.

Rowan Atkinson as an alien with communication issues. (Well, I say "no reason", but I was reminded of this by some of the bird noises in Angry Birds. Yes, seriously. I may need help...)



And The Two Ronnies Mastermind sketch. Cracks me up every time. (Sorry, sound on this one is a bit loud, you may need to turn it down a notch or two. Or risk annoying/amusing the neighbours. TMMV.)

Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Ready, aim, shuffle.

Gacked from hils

You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. So here is the game! Hit shuffle on your iPod/iTunes or mp3 player and write down the first 25 songs. No cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun! Then tag your friends (if you want).

  • Always on my mind (dub mix) - Pet Shop Boys

Thoughts - I really ought to tag all my spoken word stuff not to show up in Shuffle mode. And three songs by me? That seems incredibly arrogant. Reminds me, I really ought to get round to giving the old tapes a proper digital remastering.

But anyway, yeah, that's pretty representative. The thing I love about shuffle mode is it reminds you of stuff you've got that you maybe hadn't listened to for a while. If ever (honestly, I suspect that a good half of my collection, I bought, never got round to listening to properly at the time, then ripped to my iTunes and still haven't got round to listening to).

Can't be bothered with the whole tagging mallarkey, but if you wanna do it, have fun!
