Visitors Album Offerings [CHECK THESE OUT] ...and some ramblings about football
Hello once again..
As I look outside the window and see that inevitable 'Start of Wimbledon' rain, I think to myself 'Thank fuck for the world cup!'.
What's that? You don't like football? (or soccer if you are American), well, neither do I much but something strange happens when you hear the familiar sounds that herald a world cup tournament being played. No matter where it's being held, you can't avoid the feeling that it is somewhere near your house or your town, as the time approaches you are not allowed to think of anything else! The TV becomes a playground for the spawning of irreverent and monotonous advertising campaigns, droll and drivel, shite and more shite.
Anything with an England flag on it, in it, under it. They don't so much as support the team effort but blatantly use the whole thing as some mass advertising coup. Well I have always had a strong dislike for advertising, TV advertising I should say. It pisses me off.
So here we are, world cup time and yes yet again, you cannot so much as fart without some fucker running up and trying to paint it red and white and charge you a pound for the privilege. Groan.
I used to follow football when I was a teenager. Where I grew up if you didn't like football you were a 'queer bastard' and deserved 'a kicking'. If you did like football then you had only two options:
1. You supported Glasgow Rangers and were also immediately recognised as a Protestant.
2. You supported Glasgow Celtic and were then recognised as a Catholic.
So your football preference came with a bonus religious acceptance! Or hatred, depending on how you looked at it. [check this out]
If you were stupid enough to support any other team from Scotland's Premier League, you were a 'fucking eedjit'(idiot) and as such deserved 'a kicking'.
If, SHOCK HORROR, you were stupid(or brave!!) enough to support any team from England you were from that day known as an 'english basturt'(bastard) and as such deserved 'a kicking'.
So I used to follow football when I was a teen but not too closely(for fear of a kicking).
Many years have passed and only recently I started to feel the excitement as the world cup thing started...I think it happened a few world Cups back. And that European Cup thing with beckham missing the penalties? Oh I don't remember everything but since then I always get really into the whole tournament when it's on these days. Still, they could lose the adverts, especially here in UK we get these two moronic American caricature personalities, giving us puerile punditry at every ad break(which makes it in total about 250 times per game). They are diabolical.
And what, I hear you scream, has this bollocks go to do with music?
Nothing I reply. But this is MY PLATFORM and I can say what the hell I like so just listen.
Ok you win.
Today's musical charms have been brought to you by the sheer kindness and wit of our fellow visitors. YOU LOT! Some of you are actually inclined to offer something back which makes me feel a bit emotional. Really.
First up, something which I tend to stay away from: Jazz.
Those in the know will know the undeniable value and worth of these few recording posted here. Those who don't probably don't give a toss.
After a search I realise these are very worthy if you are into it. Rare, you might say.
Thank you to Rob for these. In his words...

Thanks again Rob. Some of this is actually friggin' good and I thought I hated jazz. Hmm ok.
The next offering is dubiously titled 'Funkmaster Radio Essentials 2006'. You might think that this is some weak attempt to promote a website(http://www.funkmasterradio.tk) by sharing a selection of tracks that are played there. Yep, that's what I thought too. It doesn't affect the music though probably, and, everyone needs promotion don't they. I can't comment on any of it I'm sorry to say but I haven't had time to listen yet.
