Oooh, goody, a guessing game

tincanman said...

My favorite mime songs?

Blimpy said...

Cute. Tip who it is?

ToffeeBoy said...

It's the Emperor's New Song - and it's magnificent!

saneshane said...

steen.. great track

Blimpy that's A QT 1

ToffeeBoy said...

OK - now I've refreshed the page a little triangle has appeared which makes me want to click on it to see what happens.

Blimpy said...

come on steen! there's a queue of us waiting for a tip on what this mystery track may be!

steenbeck said...

I don't reallly know, but it's stuck in my ears, if only they'd invent some sort of device for getting that out...

Blimpy said...

you really don't know who it is? or are you having a wee joke?

steenbeck said...

Of course I'm joking. Do you have q tips in England? The kind for cleaning ears?

ToffeeBoy said...

@ steenbeck - this side of the pond, we call them cotton buds...

ejaydee said...

Was it the new Q-Tip?
I think Steenbeck went in line to vote some time yesterday night and still hasn't come back.

steenbeck said...

Yes it is the new Q-tip. I like the whole album, but this is the most instantly accessible song and I'm addicted to it. As well as Mos Def's Travelling Man, which got NO LOVE.

So in England you miss a big part of the meaning of his name!


And I did vote today, and I'm out of my mind with anxiety. I can't even really talk about it rationally.

ToffeeBoy said...

...but I like the idea of a UK rapper called MC Cotton Buds!

We're all with you tonight steen - and I have absolute confidence that I'll wake up tomorrow to the news of President Obama's victory. Keep the faith...

ejaydee said...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Damn you Mr Obama! Now I won't be the first mixed race President of the US!!
Thunder thievin' socialist arugula eatin' terrorist pal!

Mnemonic said...

But, ejay, wouldn't you have needed to be born in a log cabin to qualify? Steenbeck, we're proud of America tonight. I think you can safely go to sleep now.

Anyway, ejay, I think the spawn of Laura Bush and that sap-sucking, swivel-headed monstrous alien from the planet Neocon beat you to it eight years ago.

DaddyPig said...

Just thought I'd pop over here and say well done to you steenbeck and the rest of the US electorate. I remember your anxiety, even across cyber-space, when that silly Sarah Palin (Sarah who ???) was chosen by McCain and some people thought she might bring out the Republican vote.

It was scary to think about the international impact of another Republican term, and the long-term impact of who McCain would've put in the Supreme Court. Hooray !

In the past few weeks I've missed RR but also enjoyed less time in front of a computer. Back soon though.

Weren't the Q-Tips Paul Young's first band. Now there's something annoying in your ear.

ejaydee said...

Gah, tallest would still be cool. I've made my peace with it.

gordonimmel said...

ejaydee, Abe Lincoln was 6' 4" (1.93m)and you have to beat him to become the tallest. How tall are you?

ToffeeBoy said...

@ proudfoot - I'm almost embarassed to know that Paul Young's first band was Streetband. Anyone remember their first and only hit?

May1366 said...

Toffeeboy, that would be "(A Little Bit Of) Toast". Best thing he did by a country mile.

ToffeeBoy said...

Congrats to you Mr 1366 - your prize (a virtual freshly toasted slice of the finest) is on its way to you via the 'Spill-ether as we speak. Enjoy...

ejaydee said...

Aha! I'm 1m95 at least. Suck on that Abe!

(Wrong choice of words in this particular case...)
