Tapman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)

20130908 Tapman Tap Face 150x150 Tapman (Ski Ba Bop Ba Dop Bop)A couple of days ago Edwin sent in a staggering 7 images.  Here is the first in the series. This is a mixer tap that looks like a little man (and for those wanting to be politically correct, he’s definitely a man, otherwise the post title doesn’t work) – the Tapman, like the Scatman but different.  Remember Scatman John?  I’m listening to his song “Scatman” as I type this.  It’s amazing how timeless this tune is.  At the time it might have been perceived to be “modern” and “loud”, going “boom boom boom boom boom”, but compared to some of the modern stuff kids listen to these days this is pretty tame and melodic and lyrically quite inspiring to people with speech impediments.

As an aside, when Scatman John scats, he sounds like he’s speaking gibberish in Vaxian…

Cry baby bunting…

20101005 Camera Case 300x225 Cry baby bunting...Whilst resting my eyes from the computer screen, trying to juggle an endless stream of emails and reinforced concrete design, I noticed the camera case looking unhappy. It’s not very clear in the picture (damn you Nokia E71 camera!) but it looks like a cute baby, except he’s not so cute, in that he’s crying. Are you hungry, little man?

Funnily enough as I am typing this, I’m listening to Last.fm and a smooth jazz version of Stevie Wonder’s song “Isn’t she lovely” came on, which started with baby sounds in the background. Incidentally, if you’re reading this, boss, I am typing this at home! 😉 Don’t pay too much attention to the blog timestamp – it’s back-dated to give my new blog some structure. It is actually 31 December 2010 today…
