So me & a few pals over in Cumberland discovered an old (and very funny) song by Victoria Wood called Pam and decided it was very applicable to Sherlock.

Anyway, I've rewritten it to fit the Cumberverse. Hope you like it!

Can I tell you my moniker?
I’m Sherlock Cecil Danger Asbo Holmes, Esquire.
I don’t like flares or bootcut jeans
I haven’t owned a training shoe since my mid teens.
I don’t drop t’s, I don’t say “oi”,
Had my grammar beat into me when I was a boy
Been decades since I cried real tears,
I bunked with my big brother for eleven years.

At boarding school, my feelings grew
And thanks to youthful hormones, body parts did too
A friend called Victor had my heart
And the previously mentioned swollen body parts
One Easter morn I let him know –
The law said “straight to prison”, but my eyes said “go”.
He invited me to taste his dick
My olfactory system’d had more pleasure being sick.
Sorry, Victor, not for me
Found out a tad too late I don’t like buggery.
I reminded him of his fiancée,
So he punched me in the face and said he wasn’t gay.

Eventually, my heart moved on,
I chummed up with a chappie by the name of John.
He moved in, he seemed quite nice,
Wore army boots and knitwear but I didn’t think twice.
Then one night he seemed upset
I said, are you not happy in my maisonette?
He met me at the swimming pool
And said he’d have to break their strict ‘no bombing’ rule.

I didn’t faint or throw a fit,
As little as I cared for his semtex jacket
I asked to see my enemy –
The lad from Bart’s IT Support who fancied me.
I said, ‘you call this a love note?
‘Putting my best friend in an exploding coat?’
He warned us with a sniper rifle
That he didn’t take our interest as a passing trifle
Sorry Jim, the game is on
And I take exception to the way you’ve dressed up John
John didn’t fuss or flinch or cough
But he cocked an eyebrow when I ripped his Parka off.

A few months past, when feeling low
I went to catch a killer out in Mexico
So much to do there after dark
With a friendly foe I’d once stepped out with at Thorpe Park
It might have been the Daiquiris
But the way she threw a punch seemed to dissolve my knees
We looked like such a happy two
Beating off The Strangler in the ladies’ loo

I told her sex had been a farce
She took it as a challenge and refreshed my glass
And I felt that there was no disgrace
To admit I like both violin and double bass
She said to search for my old watch
Concealed about her person as she approached my crotch
That’s the last I saw of my best pants
And the towel rail in the ensuite never stood a chance
I must admit, that time was fun,
But I knew I’d need a shower of shame once I was done
At last I saw the appeal of curves
Although when we tried it standing up I trapped a nerve
I went Arrrrgggh (that type of sound)

She left me – took my passport too,
But the next time that we met, at least she gave me flu
But, Mycroft noted as he poured my Scotch,
I’ve found that I can love again and found my watch!

This is Vi's favourite song right now. She can sing nearly all of it by herself. I'm so proud!

From Today's [livejournal.com profile] fannish_5

Name five songs that remind you of any five characters from fandom.

Oooh, I'm going to do just Lost, since I'm in a Lostish mood. Spotify links for those who have it.

Locke/Mocke - 'Breakaway' by the Beach Boys. A man telling himself that he can break away from the shackles that are binding him down.

Benj - 'Ben' by Michael Jackson is so obvious I'm not going to count it! Instead we have 'To Die A Virgin' by The Divine Comedy, which makes me think of his 'relationship' with Juliet, as well as his probable fate in either one or both of his timelines.

Richard - 'Filthy/Gorgeous'. Because only Scissor Sisters can properly evoke Ricardo and his fabulous lashes.

Claire - Numb by Portishead. This was used in the brilliant UK trailer for the Pilot way back when, and Claire's appearance in that trailer particularly stuck out for me. Besides which, it seems to fit the way her character has ended up. http://open.spotify.com/track/48rKkLIVPa4D5MKPugfn7J

Jacob/The Island - Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. To be taken as irnoically as you see fit. http://open.spotify.com/track/17467hLI4TVcCfTCCPpDEy

It's called 1996 And All That - it's the soundtrack to my later teens. Lots and lots of Britpop, a few Old Skool dance tracks thrown in. Enjoy.

Although if Sky won't be showing it til Sunday night (which I assume they will), I won't be able to buy it off iTunes til next Monday, and won't be able to watch it til Monday night at the least, so no Spoliers please, you wacky Americans!

I'm too much of a grumpy old goat to watch Children In Need, so I missed this little bit of magic when it was on. It may well be the perfect music video. Vi certainly thinks it is.

Her favourite bits are Igglepiggle wandering into the back of the shot, the Pinky Ponk at the end and the Fat Controller. I really like the Koala Brothers, the Wombles and Paddington's James Brown act. It might be the sleep deprivation of the last few days, but the Hey Jude bit brings a little tear to my eye. But then, Hey Jude often does that to me anyway. Joyful. (Except... since when was Thomas the Tank Engine so scary looking?)

Hey! [livejournal.com profile] chaletian's doing an MP3 Shuffle meme, so I think I will too!

Jeffrey the Archos is shuffling away... here's 30 first lines - hit me with those titles and artists!

1 - Baby, you understand me now, if sometimes you see that I'm mad...
2 - Spiky lady, shiny queen, don't you tell them what you've seen...
3 - All these people are laughing at him, and although he tries, it's getting to him...
4 - Oh oh oh, woke up today feeling the way I always do...
5 - Aruba, Jamaica, ooh, I wanna take ya - Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama...
6 - He ran the underworld / but thought the dead were dull and uncouth...
7 - The sun has a reason, and the world it will bloom...
8 - I dreamt that I was dreaming / I was wired to a clock / tickled by the minute hand / tick tock tick tick tock
9 - Lift up your head / wash off your mascara / here, take my Kleenex / wipe that lisptick away
10 - She said I know but I just can't tell everything that you've just been saying
11 - David Bowie came to town / flying overhead / "Don't you dig my chops" he cried / this is what they said...
12 - She gave her heart to a wealthy man / a healthy child and a healthy tan...
13 - Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC / Didn't get to bed last night...
14 - Do you feel like a chainstore / practically floored?
15 - Hey man, how come you treat your woman so bad? That's not the way you do it, no no no, you shouldn't do it like that...
16 - Here come old flat-top, he come groovin' up slowly...
17 - Don't change your name, keep it the same for fear I may lose you again...
18 - It's close to midnight, and something evil's lurkin' in the dark...
19 - I never thought I'd miss you half as much as I do...
20 - Bless my soul / Herc was on a roll / person of the week in every Greek opinion poll
21 - Look in the mirror, turn the face up / ever tried to live without the photographs and money?
22 - Build yourself a castle / keep your family safe from harm / get into Classical music / raise rabbits on a farm
23 - Streets like a jungle / so call the police...
24 - Once I believed that when love came to me / it would come with rockets, bells and poetry...
25 - The winter may pass and the spring fade away, the spring fade away...
26 - Whistle for the boys now don't be shy / give us all a song and a reason why...
27 - Alcoholic kind mood / lose my clothes, lose my lube...
28 - Clearing skies and drying eyes, now I see your smile / darkness goes and softness shows a changing style...
29 - She came from Greece, she had a thirst for knowledge / she studied sculpture at St Martin's college
30 - They put a parking lot on a piece of land / where the supermarket used to stand / before that they put up a bowling alley / on the site that used to be the local Palais...

Wooo, I'm finally Spotified up!

And this means I can at last do a tres, tres geeky thing I've been thinking about for a while now - namely, soundtracks to my epic fics.
Here's Rollercoaster's

Tracks are:
Quantum Theory - Jarvis Cocker - General theme
Carioca - Fred Astaire - Sung by Q in 'Blue Fairy Godmothers Don't Wear Sombreros'
Ode To Joy - Beethoven - Sung by Tasha & Data, theme music to triumph over Fajo.
Ballroom Blitz - Sweet - Inspiration for Tasha & Data's dance at the O'Brien Wedding
Baby Get Your Head Screwed On - inspiration for the Time's Arrow adventure
Suddenly Seymour - Little Shop Of Horrors Cast - rehearsed (unsuccessfully) by Data and Tasha during 'The Best Intentions'.
'Something Changed' - Pulp - general theme to the S7 adventures, especially the All Good Things adventure.Tracks under the cut are for forthcoming stories - possible slight spoilers for where Rollercoaster's going... )
Hope you enjoy!

Mum has been down with Sis this weekend. We went on an epic shopping trip yesterday for Sis' birthday presents and the 'non-birthday presents' that Mum still insists on buying for me every year even though I'm nearly 30 - by happy coincidence this coincided with the last day of a Debenhams Sale. Mum ended up getting a coat for sis, jeans for me & her (that's right, I now have exactly the same pair of jeans as my mother, only several sizes larger than hers. I am just so fucking hip) & a jumper for me and didn't even break £80. Bargain! Wearing the jeans now - properly comfy :)

Oh, and this is hilarious. The link I got off the brilliant Emma Kennedy on Twitter advertised it as being a school band's performance of the 2001: A Space Odyssey theme, but it's actually an adult orchestra, though they're all newcomers to the instruments they're playing. It's funnier to picture little kids doing it, though.

Jesus Wept! Am I seeing things or does the front page of OK Magazine actually have a blurry photo of a possibly-dead-certainly-dying Jacko being bundled into the ambulance? Did I miss a meeting where it was decided that any pretence of respect for the dying or bereaved relatives is now going to be ignored in favour of ghoulish voyerurism? Whatever you think of the bloke - I've never been a big fan in particular and went off him personally around the Earthsong/Jarvisgate incident, but I enjoy his music from the 70s & 80s still - he was still a human being, splashing pictures of him dying on the front page to flog copies of your shitty downmarket gossip rag is still diabolical. Whether the family approved of it or not (and from what I've heard about them, I wouldn't put it past 'em) it's still grotesque. We really are no better than the cunts who used to pay to point and laugh at Bedlam patients, aren't we? Modern media is rubbish.

Love this remix of 'Being For The Benefit of Mr Kite'.

All pretty normal until 1:48 where it breaks into She's So Heavy and Helter Skelter on top of the end of Mr Kite. For some reason, it makes me think of Twelfth Night. It makes me want to do a version of the play set in a Mental Institute.

Oh God, MENTAL dreams lately! Last night/this morning I dreamt that an old Uni friend who has since become a professional comedian and has been on telly'n'shit was a DJ, and that he'd invited me onto his radio show to plug a show I was in - for the best really, since I was doing 12th Night apparently, but he kept saying on air it was Midsummer Night's Dream. Only in the dream I overslept then had to hurry to the car and try to find the little radio station in the middle of an area of London I'd never driven in before. And my Satnav was broken. And at one point I had to stop the car because the Queen was leading a bicycle race(!) and the road had been shut off. Needless to say, I got to the station (via a magic door in the British Library which was only to be used in the case of Shakespeare Emergencies) just as the show ended.

Then, the dream changed and it was about Eric from D&DC who was a rent boy, working the streets. Oh, it gets weirder. A car pulled up and it was Chiwitel Ejiofor, who gave Cpt Shiny a long, appreciative look up & down, then got out of the car and pulled Eric into this little room (in a castle, I think) and they started going at it. Chewie was really dominant and Shinypants was loving it. It may have been a cartoon teenager and a real actor, but by jove, it was hot stuff.

Also, this song is really rockin' my Jeffrey Archos at the moment. J-Lo v S-Wo v K-Co with, as Hubs recently noticed, a little smattering of D-Bo in there for shits & giggles as well. No idea what the skinny bint with the Mickey Mouse mask has to do with it - shrink her anorexic ass down and just listen to the choon.
