Hi there. You know, I sometimes write for you here at the dear old Cult. Always different subjects, eclectic. I don’t have any airs or graces and I’m not some great intellectual but I do know what makes me tick. Mainly it’s M & M’s, y’know, Motorbikes and Music, but the other great love of my life is a good laugh. Where would we be without it?
So, put simply, I just thought that I would write a short piece about something incredibly silly, nothing else to it really. It’s not important, you can’t do anything about it, it’s not life changing and you can’t change the world with it. The good thing is though, it won’t encumber your carbon footprint any ;)
And here it is, fairly short, not sure about sweet, just a very silly viewpoint on books: Should they be judged by their cover?
Firstly, I thought I would start with a subject close to my heart… music, there can’t be too many risky titles in that category thought (I cheated a bit, this is sheet music – do pronounce that sh eeee t) and I’ll just go ahead and print a selection of titles, do look them up if tempted to purchase….
- Beware My Fanny – John S Geldard, 1820
‘Behold my Fanny, yonder flow’r
How droops its lovely head –
It blows, and yet another hour –
It withers and is dead’
- Galloping Dick – Percy Fletcher and G. Rothery, 1911
- It’s Really Quite Hard – Anon., 1899
‘It’s apt to be embarrassing’ . . ..etc
- Open Thy Lattice Darling! – G. H. Newcombe, 1890
- You’re Getting It Up for Me – Augustus Leach, 1878
If you’re in Paris or nearby and if there is a band that you would like to see playing at the Olympia, don’t hesitate man, you got to go! This place is really amazing and kind of epic!
So that’s where I am – and tonight the audience is not exactly similar to the one I saw the the last time I was here to see Limp Bizkit – there are way more girls (thank you universe)!!!
It’s no wonder there are some many chicks around, especially when you give a look at Mr. Yodelice (voice/guitar). The kind of guy that makes every other guy jealous (yeah dude reader, don’t try to act like you’re not): good looking, beautiful voice, awesome guitar skills (the sound was spectacular) and this kind of mysterious allure. Not only Yodelice is talented but he’s having his moment of fame (2 consecutives night at the Olympia). Ok man, show us what you got!

badbanana Don’t worry about tomorrow. Worry about what comes after tomorrow. Mutant armies and stuff.
JimGaffigan A government shut down would worry me if I thought they were actually ever open.
mrdavehill Dear Everybody: By the time you read this, it will be too late. I will already be in the shower. I hope you’re happy.
thebenbrooks If you talk to your spouse and hear a huge “whoosh” noise, don’t be alarmed, it’s likely just the joy being sucked out of your life.
juicymorsel Love conquers all. But bleach gets the stains out.
thebenbrooks Chase Bank announced new rules today. If ANYONE, ANYTIME, goes within 100ft of ANY of their banks, they owe the bank $50.
BorowitzReport Don’t worry: in the event of a shutdown, the gov’t will still provide essential services to Libya, Afghanistan & Iraq.
badbanana I may be a bit rusty, but if the world ever needs me to climb into a triangle and shoot asteroids, I’m ready.

alexblagg Anyone else want to join me in a class-action false advertising lawsuit against The Neverending Story?
CroweJam Starting to think the guy who’s been sleeping on my couch isn’t the real Kurt Cobain.
Hey punk-rockers!!! You guys are in for a treat today because Miss Scarlet gives you PENNY-FUCKIN-WISE!!! Remember those guys? Oh yes. How can we forget one of the most legendary californian punk-rock bands of the 90s.
Straight from my cd player when I was in high school… back when the stuff I used to listen to was way less pretentious than now but so much more fun! Back when hating hippies and riding skateboards was still considered cool!
In this video yours truly talks with the awesome Flecther Dragge, the band’s historical guitar player and let me tell ya, I have done a few interviews in my time and this was definetely one of the most interesting ones. I mean, sometimes musicians have nothing to talk about … or in other cases it gets pretty boring pretty quickly. But this guy? Not boring at all – I actually had to cut a few stuff that were way too controversials for this world :)
And the concert was uber-cool as well my friends…but that’s another story for another day. Enjoy the interview guys!!
Hey Culters… it’s that time again, time for a Lime Brothers playlist!
Things have been pretty hectic these last couple of weeks: between ska gigs, 30th birthday parties, work cocktail parties, after work cocktail parties, sunny spring lunches, bidding farewell to a great colleague/friend and the usual every day work shenanigans, our brains are having trouble settling down and making sense of it all.
Emotions have been running high and low and this little set of tunes pretty much sums up every single one of them in a nutshell. If you are looking for any sort of meaning or coherence to this list of songs, don’t. They are just a product of our wonderfully confused minds and just another chapter in the soundtrack of our lives!
Happy listening crazy world!
The Lime Bros
