Shovels get a bad press. Whether it be as bizarre plate replacements, or in their more natural habitat as grave digging implements or road works collaborators – they’re always causing mischief. It’s about time that shovels gave something back. And they have chosen to begin giving back with this: playing the open chords of a Nirvana song.
Is it fake? Is it not? Who cares: what has been heard cannot be unheard.
The lack of sleep chez 6000 continues. Together with the heat of the day, this child-induced insomnia each night is pushing us to our limits. Even 2¾ year old Alex has called in the Unions who have threatened a “dirty protest” should the regular nocturnal crying from his little sister’s room persist. It’s a horrifying thought.
While down at the Waterfront, and having exhausted (npi) all other legal possibilities of inducing a good night’s sleep, I found this:
Rockabye Baby! transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies. The soothing sounds of the glockenspiel, vibraphone, mellotron and other instruments will lull your baby into a sweet slumber.
So hopefully, from now on, with the lights out, it’s less dangerous.
