4th July...




A belated 4th July greeting to all American readers. It's just an ordinary day here and I spent it tearing around English seaside resorts - to visit courts not beaches. Anyone who accepts the challenge to get from Margate to Brighton in rapid succession by rail is plainly a little crazed but I got away with it. The evening was spent recuperating over Pimms, beer and vin blanc with former pupil and former senior clerk among others. Damage: not too bad ;)


Especially for the 4th July - I came across the clip above on Bug-Eyed Earl's blog (link to left) so Hat Tip in order. It's Brad Neeley's 'Washington'. Brad Neeley is a cartoonist and animator who - why am I not surprised? - had something to do with South Park. This clip always cracks me up...


Parting shot - Brucie and Pals performing Darlington County at the same Paris concert as my very first Yer Rock and Roll posting. Tenuous link: it's a song about a bad day out on the 4th July...

I never realized that Neely had something to do with South Park. Kewl!

Earl - Yuppety - Neely (not Neeley) was recruited to the South Park writing team late last year.

Fact :D

Yeah, that's a pretty funny cartoon about Washington. I loved the Springsteen clip, being from New Jersey, and all.

I would never trust a guy who has 3 "E"'s in his last name. That's like, um, half the total letters in his name, fer crissakes! ;)
