Top Five… Random but Hilarious Videos on Youtube

 

I’ve been AWOL last month, for those who noticed (*crickets chirp* No one? No one missed me? Oh…) Long story short, I was on tour around Spain with my band, which was AMAZING and I shall be doing a post about that soon enough. In the meantime though, I’m going to share my top 5 random but hilarious videos on youtube.

Because when you’ve done something as cool as touring a different country with your band, naturally the first blog you decide to do will have nothing to do with that. Obviously.

Top Five… Cheerfully creepy songs

As shown with my last top 5 list, I’ve got a bit of a penchant for things that aren’t as they seem. So, going on from that, here’s my top five most cheerfully creepy songs. Enjoy!!

Honourable mention: MMMbop – Hanson

This is the one that keeps coming up on lists like this so I’m pretty sure there’s now not a person who was alive in the 90’s who doesn’t know this song is about the futility of life. (If this was news to you, then SURPRISE!! All along, Hanson were trying to tell you that you will inevitably grow old and die, and most things you do are meaningless. OKAAAY YEAAAAH MMMMBOP!!! 😀 😀 )

Writing Prompt – Oh La La

Prompt: (iPod on shuffle) Oh La La – Small Faces
Word count: 567

Train journeys are great, aren’t they? They’re a brilliant time to reflect on things as you head into the unknown and the new, or as you crawl back home, battered and destroyed from life.

We go home to repair. It’s always described as a relief to get home.

So, I reflect. Or rather I plug in my headphones, curl up on the empty seat next to me and using my rucksack as a pillow, I try to sleep. I try to block out the feelings of failure, the thoughts of rejection. I look up at the yellow overhead lights, the grey seats, the darkened windows with the occasional light from outside flashing past. We’re passing through the countryside – I’ll know soon enough when we get close to the city because that’s when the lights get brighter, more frequent. Some might say ‘more intrusive’ but not me. I can’t sleep if it’s too peaceful. I need the roar of a distant motorway and streetlights streaming in through my window to sooth me to sleep. She always hated that.

How to get through an audition you know you’re going to bomb

As anyone who’s ever been in a band will tell you, if you try to make it, you WILL take your fair share of knockbacks. In fact, I’d go so far as to say that out of every 10 things we go for, 9 of them we don’t get and the 1 we do get often has some unexpected set back that we never saw coming.

But hey, it comes with the territory. “WE’RE LIVING THE DREAM,” no band has ever said.”THE DREAM WHERE WE’RE CONSTANTLY BROKE AND UNEMPLOYED!!”

Because we’re nice people (sometimes, anyway), we’re going to give you our top five tips for how to get through an audition that you know you’re going to bomb.

Tempting Fate

As a band, we sometimes tempt fate. Most of the time it’s in vaguely harmless-hilarious ways, such as Wotsit being mistaken for a Nazi, but then there’s times when there’s genuine legal ramifications or long-term consequences.

I suspect it comes from naming the band “Crime Scene Yeah.” With a name like that, it’s just ASKING to get in trouble. People seem to get the impression that we’re a WELL ‘ARD BAND when we’re really… uh… not  :/

Why you should never pick a fight with us.

As a band, we’re no strangers to dealing with assholes. Some people don’t like our music, which is fair enough, but a while ago at one of our gigs, we had a very strange experience with a fellow who had seen us perform, liked us enough to buy our CD afterwards… and then somehow got it into his head that Wotsit was a Nazi.

YEAH.
