Hi There. haven’t done any Christmas gigs yet. Had this weekend off. Just getting ready though. Found some great versions of “White Christmas”. I know that Bing is the King for a lot of you but to be honest I prefer the Al Jarreau or the Michael Buble’ Version. I once heard a great jazz ballad version of it on radio 1 by of all people David grant I think and the piano was amazing to anyone who knows anything about music. Can I find it now? Can I hell! I’ve been looking for it all my life. I’ve strayed into ballads now and I’ve just heard an amazing version of Paul Mc Cartney’s: “Maybe I’m amazed” by Carleene Anderson. Check it out. Nice. Luther Vandross does a very nice version of “Have yourself a merry little Christmas” too but hey, I’m giving all my secrets away here!
Well not much to talk about when weeks are quiet so I’ll leave you with an after dinner joke based on the “quiet factor”
|An Englishman ,a Scotsman, and an Irishman are all to give speeches to the Deaf Society. All are keen to make an impression on their audience.
The Englishman goes first and to the surprise of his colleagues starts by rubbing first his chest and then his groin. When he finishes the Scotsman and Irishman ask him what he was doing.
“Well” he explained” By rubbing my chest I indicated breasts and thus Ladies and by rubbing my groin I indicated balls and thus Gentlemen. So my speech started: Ladies and Gentlemen”.
On his way up to the podium the Scotsman thought to himself I’ll go one better than that English bastard and started his speech by making an antler symbol with his fingers above his head before also rubbing his chest and his groin.
When he finished his colleagues asked what he was doing. “Well” he explained” By imitating antlers and then rubbing my chest and groin I was starting my speech by saying: Deer Ladies and Gentlemen”.
On his way up to the podium the Irishman thought to himself I’ll go one further than those mainland bastards and started his speech by making an antler symbol above his head, rubbing his chest, and then his groin, and then masturbating furiously.
When he finished his colleagues asked him what he was doing. “Well” he explained,” by imitating antlers, rubbing my chest and then my groin and then masturbating I was starting my speech by saying: Deer Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure…….”
