This shot very nearly made it into the 2013 Slide Guy calendar, but.... it didn't.
There's something about this summery shot that sends a shiver down my back. The simpering lad, the out-of-proportion mom, the odd knotted wool swimsuit....the egg. Very Odd.
Bonus - Them Russians don't need no Adobe Photoshop...

Any party held now, well.... full marks for trying to make something happen, but tough luck. They just don't work :-(

Christmas is a time for joy, and this choir will undoubtedly be the stars of the Christmas Day service. You can see Miss Harbinger (the conductor) is quite delighted with the progress of the boys. Despite being attached by midnight black vampire butterflies, they're ready for the spotlight.
Bonus - Beyonce and Yakkety Sax - A definite improvement.

On the plus side, at least the subjects aren't squinting due to looking directly towards the sun. On the negative side... too much contrast.
Fashion-wise.... oh boy. Sometimes Bow-Ties aren't cool, and the show-off lily is just too bling.
Bonus - China's "Nail Grave" Relocated

...are not present here. This makes this holiday snap one of the dullest yest seen. :-(
Bonus - On The Other Hand, GLACIERS AND ICEBERGS ARE AWESOME. (Suggest full screen and with sound "up")

Yes, it looks like an acute case of "Dave's Syndrome". Potentially fatal, but with a hibernation phase of 60-120 Years.

On the Northern edge of Dartmoor, just East of the city of Melchester rests the frankly disappointing hillock of Dalek Tor.For centuries, the ancient Britons wrote no myths and legends about this hillock- Even the name was just a leftover when another Tor was renamed.
However, the Sci-Fi writer Mitchell Dougherty remembered the shape of the old tor, and when the TV series Doctor Who came up with a new Monster Of The Week, he suggested Dalek. (Clearly influenced by the domed / conical shape.)
The right hand outcrop has been colloquially renamed Davros Tor, although the OS map still keeps the old name of Epididymis Tor.
Bonus - Blog - Clients From Hell. Plenty chuckles.

Who would have thought that an aerial view of a rocky, wintry shore line could be tedious....but it is. By heck, it certainly is.
Bonus - Distracted by a Home Server that appears to be dying. (Damn It!) so here's a quick hit.
Forget Schroedinger's Cat, try Nietzsche Cats

Clearly, Cross-Beam is Out O' Skew on T'Treadle.
Weirdly, as I started typing this, the Intro to ISIHAC is talking about Richard Arkwright and the Spinning Jenny (a Polish Pole Dancer he was enamoured with.)
More info. More Pictures

Tedious Tuesday again. Seems like only a week since the last one.
A great mystery in life is why are these sorts of photographs taken? A jolt at the wrong time? Dining table fetish?
Even more mysterious - why keep them ??
Bonus - Christmas Gift Suggestion

Of course it's serious. I mean....look at their faces. It's serious, very serious.
Someone, or something, tried to join in their meeting, but they...weren't...wearing...glasses !
Oh, the humanity.
Bonus - Took me a second to recognise the tune, but it's Flunk's cover of Blue Monday.

Nosirree. There''s nothing creepy about a child's doll, with a permed wig, dressed up in adult clothes, lounging on a chez-longue.
Nothing. At. All.
Bonus - When crafting enthusiasm > crafting ability.

And it's bloody freezing out there.
Make sure you wrap up warm, chums.

Something .... agricultural, I suspect. Suggestions on a postcard.
Normally, I give eack slide a little clean and brush-up before I blog them. Things one... I don't think so.
Bonus - The secret of a good presentation is enthusiasm. It's a secret that this...umm....Chef... is clearly unaware of. Laydeez and Gentlemen...
Edit - Damn Removed. Alternative copy

"What? Any Relation? Well, I have a sister who lives in Deer Creek, and..."
"Joseph ? No, I don't thing I do. Why do you ask?"
"Oh My. I'm surprised. And shocked. Doesn't sound like any relation I know of."
Bonus - My favourite Polar Bear picture of the moment.
Bonus 2 - Tho' this owl pic is damned good.

Bright and cheerful kids, and a coup,e of miserable old battleaxes. That's what families used to get together for. Nowadays, the son would be playing with his WhyPod, and the daughter would be up-chucking in the loo.
Bonus - Police 99.999% certain that man found shot in the head in tied-up sack floating in river committed suicide.
Sunday, 25 November 2012
A classic slide from the earlier sixties. (Or so I guess - the men are generally hatless, and the women still wear gloves. Feels like a JFK-era shot.
Whether it's West Point graduation, or just a particularly militaristic High School, I don't really know.
Bonus 2 - 37 years on, still sounding good. Bill Nelson - Maid In Heaven

There's a sight you don't see nowadays....
Except, that you can. Original Wisconsin Ducks are still in business, still taking tourists trough wet and dry parts of the Wilds of Wisconsin.
Bonus - Not very ofton that you find an uplifting cartoon on the interweb. Cynicism and weirdness sems to win out usually. However, I did like this one...
Bonus 2 - On the subject of weirdness, the always reliable Japan World Cup

The Gods sure have it in for this slide. Overexposed, faded and fungal growth... there's negligible chance of it polishing up nicely.
Which is a shame, as there's a marvellous Diamondback Rattlesnake in it.
Bonus - Close escape for the SAR crew on Mount Hood.

Clearly well chuffed after disposing of another body.
Bonus - A thought. Does anyone have the nerve to tweet "L*rd Mc *lpine ; Methinks he doth protest too much." Me? Nope. No twitter account. Plus, obviously untrue.
Not for them the slumming delights of Inter-Railing. Ew ! No, Daddy's lent them the gite for the summer, tho' only with the...
Seems like quite a while since the last "Funny Looking Kid" post, so to make amends, here's Kevin. Yes, Kevin. You see, hi...
