I can't get the song Rock Me Amadeus out of my head. I only vaguely remember it from the 80s (I think I was about 7), but I saw it the other night on C4, and then downloaded the song.
I seem to have finally gotten Rock Me Amadeus out of my mind now, but its been replaced with another song: The Downeaster "Alexa" by Billy Joel.
The Top Gear team decide to find out what makes caravans attractive, and set off on a caravan holiday together. The clip below is just the fire. You can also watch the whole episode.
See how many hallmarks of 80s New Zealand you can spot in the video:
I make no apologies for my taste in music. I like the Oak Ridge Boys.
Watch the trick that made him famous:
Strange how Uri's powers don't work when he doesn't arrange the setting and supply the props.
Hugh Laurie is just so talented.
George Carlin is awesome!
Fry and Laurie are hilarious!
Fry and Laurie goodness
Just write to your MP ..... but this is much more entertaining ... and sexier . God, I love British comedy.
The old testament has all the gory bits.
More Fry & Laurie
Stephen Fry is lovely, in a fluffy, moist and very pink kind of way.
I love this guy's voice.
The other day I decided to see if I could find anywhere in Auckland that I could listen to some live country music. I pretty much came up empty.
America appears to not be the only country where basic science education is lacking. I don't know how this could be faked, but I have a hard time believing people really are this stupid.
I discovered this program recently on YouTube. Charlie Brooker is a misanthropic British guy who makes a TV program all about television. I find this kind of British humour really refreshing, but that could just be because I like swearing.
Is is wrong of me to wish I could see Stephen hit Hugh sexily with a golf club?
No cocktail tonight - but this clip from A Bit of Fry & Laurie does feature a cocktail.
.... he's gonna love ya, hard as he can.
Fry and Laurie take the piss out of yanks.
I'm not generally much into classical music, but I make an exception for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra:
Hugh Laurie's reactions just kill me

I've had this song (by Falco) on near endless repeat for the past few days. I barely understand a word of it, but I like it anyway.
I know it's ridiculous, but I really really like this. I keep playing it over and over and over. I think maybe I'm addicted to dick in a box :(
A while back, I procrastinated watching HBO's Deadwood. If you haven't seen it yet, you should - it is fantastic.
Were you a kiwi kid? Do you remember this?
I am particularly fascinated by one hit wonders, especially the ones that peak high on the charts and are hugely successful for a little while and then disappear completely leaving everyone embarrassed and denying that they ever liked it. Those are the songs that define eras.
Aserejé by Las Ketchup. I know all the words :-)
I loved Billy Ray Cyrus. He was just so damn cute. It was a great catchy song, and just look at all the hairstyles :-)
This is one of my favourite songs. Bertie Higgins has a fantastic voice. I just love the romantic images the song conjures up in my mind.
I know, I know, I post way too many YouTube clips. But this one is really short and very funny.
