Earworm: School week special – “Informer” Snow

In celebration of the start of the new school year, (although i’m not sure if it really is a celebration for some.) this weeks Earworms will be based on songs that reminds us of school.  Not so much as songs about school, but songs that when we hear them, reminds us of the day’s that’s gone by.  Well for me at least, Cheesecake is still in school, so i’m not sure how good he’ll do with our special.

In any case, let me get things started.  My first entry is Snow’s Informer, which was released back in 1992.  It just reminds me of when I was in 8th grade, listening to it at my friend’s house after school, and hearing the ‘cool’ kids singing it or what not.  To this day, it just takes me back to those day’s when I hear this song.

I still like hearing it every now and then, but for the past 10 minutes, it’s been looping in another tab on you tube, and it’s kinda annoying now.

So, I ask this to our ten’s of readers, what song brings you back to the good ole’ days.

My first shot at a reblog for this blog. Personally, one of my favorite shows, all-time, hands down. Series 7 premiered last Saturday, and I would love to share it with you guys. Oh, and Jenna Louise Coleman is smoking hot. Can we all agree?

So, the season premiere of Doctor Who has aired and the internet is a-buzz with talk about the BIG REVEAL. But what I wanted to look at in this post is how many of Steven Moffat’s previous story ideas have been recycled for Asylum Of The Daleks.

Moffat’s re-used themes and ideas from his earlier episodes in the past. The Eleventh Hour was practically riddled with quotes and throwbacks to episodes of Doctor Who that Moffat had written while Russell T Davies was showrunner. Here are five ways Asylum Of The Daleks ‘borrows’ from earlier ideas…

Random Flickr Photo of the Day

Another shot from 2009, I had a lot of time then, as the company I worked for cut back our hours so that everyone can stay employed, and not have anyone get laid off, so to make good use of that extra found free day, I did some photography.  I should honestly find a way to do this again, even if it’s a few shots a day.  I do tend to get rusty, and looking at my shot list this year, it’s severely down from my usual 10k or shots a year.

Anyway, this shot was from a fine spring day in Central Park, NYC, it was quite gloomy, but I still somehow managed to squeeze off a few shots. This particular frame is a weeping willow, somewhere in the park.  I did some processing fun with Lightroom, and managed to produce this.
