Frank’s Weekly/Monthly/Quarterly/Annual Moving Image Appreciation Post #1

You’ve probably noticed by now that I spend a large portion of my time on the Interwebz and watching television and films (though I still have not seen Forrest Gump, despite my best efforts to – best efforts being thinking, “I should find out if we own that!” – or Breakfast At Tiffany’s). Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to share my love of moving images with you all on a somewhat regular basis. I don’t know how regular yet because I’m lazy, forgetful and quite unreliable when it comes to blogging specific things… Let’s just see how it pans out.

So, without further ado:

Axis of Awesome: 4 Chord Song


Since I’ve recently learnt the Circle of Fifths, I think this is the most brilliant thing ever. Also very proud that none of my favourite bands are in there – though no one’s heard of most of them, so maybe I shouldn’t be too pleased… Chords, by the way, are C, G, A minor and F.

Venetian Princess: 7 Things Spoof


If you’re a girl who doesn’t do one of the things Venetian Princess sings about, or you’re one of the guys who does, come say hi. And pass this on to everyone else.

Weird Al Yankovic: Amish Paradise


The brilliant thing about this video is that Amish people can’t be offended by this, because to do so they’d have to see it and know what they’re missing! It’s unoffendable!

Weird Al Yankovic: Perform This Way


It took me quite a few watches to twig they’d Photoshopped Al’s face on a girl’s body. I was thinking, “He’s well fit for an old bloke!”

Gerard Rockin’ In His Pajamas


Everyone’s favourite band jamming during the making of Revenge. Song, I belive, is AC/DC’s Problem Child.

Could you deal with more blogs like this or shall I stick to ranting?! Sorry if there are any spelling mistakes, the WP spellchecker keeps zonking out.

I Used to Say There’s Nothing in this World to Make Me Suicidal. I Was Wrong.

I know for a fact that no one’s going to read this until at least Monday, because the whole of Europe is completely fixated on Eurovision.

Which, I’m sorry, is a modern-day League of Nations.

Okay, so there have been a few good Eurovision acts. I love me a bit of Abba… I also saw that Bucks Fizz song on TV the other day, that’s pretty funny. I spent the whole video trying to guess the year… I thought 1976 until they took the skirts off, then I went for 1982… it was 1981 in the end.

Anyway, I think Lady Gaga should be an honerary European for the weekend with that Judas song (which has Judas wearing Jesus’ crucifixion gear in the video, I believe? What’s up with that? Judas committed suicide after he sold Jesus out. No spiky crown).

Another complaint: why are all these male acts talking about wanting girls? I’m sorry, but if Jedward aren’t at least half gay, there’s some issues with the universe.

I didn’t even know Estonia’s in Europe.

So, if anyone can explain to me what the point of Eurovision is, I’d appreciate it. I’m currently going through my grandparents’ families trying to find someone who isn’t from Europe originally. It’s not worked, I might vote Malta and be done with it.

Ooh, Greece is on. I bloody hope my mum’s watching this. She and Michelle could get the locals to sing along. Or not. There’s rapping.

Oh yeah, Russia always do well, Mr. Norton, because the Eastern Bloc is very much alive in this competition.
