On a Wednesday?



I like Snooks Eaglin, his gentle voice, his sweet guitaring, and his name. (How bout Snooks, Blimpy?)



This is funny...



This is the start of my new series On a Wednesday? When I post random tidbits you'd never expect to find ... on a Wednesday.

This week's theme - being early?

Makinavaja said...

I think he saw your procrastination post, Tin. And misunderstood it...

bishbosh said...

Ooh, numbers 1 and 2! What do I win?

tincanman said...

Well done!

tincanman said...

Maki, I'll get back to you in a bit

lambretinha said...

Ok, so he has taken the list down again (someone in the mighty Grauniad empire needs some kind of tutorial re: how to put things up in the web for public viewing... or not!)

Does anybody remember which songs were in the list?

And, while we're at it? Did the list include this week's topic, too?

bishbosh said...

Can't remember all of them, lambi, but I seem to recall one of your Linda Thompson noms making it (the only that includes the word 'beauty' in the title).

bishbosh said...

And no, no mention of this week's topic - I promise! *bish furiously starts compiling covert list*

Mnemonic said...

Chet Baker - My Funny Valentine
Thelonius Monk - Ugly Beauty

Also saw Bjork and Alison Moyet I think.

lambretinha said...

Oh, ok... Thanks Bish and Mnemonic. (Gazing over Bish's shoulder to catch a glimpse of his candidates, while furiously scribbling on a paper)

Ho hum!

bishbosh said...

There was also a Mary J Blige/Black Star one of steen's. And Costello's "All this useless beauty", I think. Having said that, perhaps PaulMac is furiously rewriting the list as we speak!

lambretinha said...

I don't think so, bish. The cat's out of the bag now. There was a leak a couple of months ago also, and he took it on the chin, no biggie. And it's not really important to us as posters either; the main issue (if any) is having a friday's newspaper column available for reading on Wednesday on the blog...

severin said...

Bjork - Venus as a boy
Chet Baker - My Funny Valentine

severin said...

It'll all be official soon anyway, but if anyone hasn't seen the list and can't wait this link aint broken.

great clips steenbeck - although watching on a Friday is kind of cheating I know!

Shoey said...

Even though Tin has this market cornered, but you still need a name for this series, whadabout "Show Us Your Tids"?

Sorry

**Leaves room quietly**

It' Sunday, so Snooks is gone already. Nice clips though, I think I've seen that movie before...
