Kate Micucci (from Italian parents) and yes, she knows what her name means.
Part of a folk/cabaret duo, also and immensely hard working (see wiki):



Enjoy!

And, o yes, the wiki:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kate_Micucci

Rhymes on on of my heroes: Dion DiMucci. Remember Dion and the Belmonts?
Kind regards, Gus

Ha ha @LePlongeur   :D   

I found this. It's probably not British but it works in several languages.


I'm Bill and I'm just a normal guy.

Poor piano isn’t it @Bill?
This guy must apply for a crash course anger management.
But apart from that, what would you say if Kate asked: what time is it Bill?
Dutch humor of course, but too good to let that one slip through my fingers.
Kind (really) regards, Gus

Love this one!
My name is Gus and I am afraid of silences, caused by non writing.
This is too good to be true.

Keep them coming @Mar T. please.

Haha @LePlongeur , I'm @Mar T. and I'm afraid of the sequence spelled as 'n-o-n w-r-i-t-i-n-g'. Mieeew... Yeah, that's what I repond with when I'm afraid. I hope there's no people fearing cat-sounds here..

Love the british humour in general. And as it all comes down there's a simple recepe:



(Course starts at 2 mins, 8 secs)
So now we know how that works!  ;) ;)

We’ve been watching some instalments or what’s the name of Ted Lasso.
Supposedly very funny and maybe proof why the Boom Chicago in Amsterdam is sort of no longer scheduling American stand up comedians.



See for yourself. And tell me what you think.

OK, back to the original title of this thread:



A V8 for a cup of tea? We’ll never get the environmental promises fulfilled.
Environ Mental? Yes, I believe so.
Have a nice weekend, Gus

Grimms, a combination of some members of the Bonzo Dog Band, Scaffold and then some, did a very weird and powerful amalgam of poetry and humor.

Among the goodies I have of them is a live LP on the ‘help’ - needless to explain - sub label of Island.
And one of the opening tracks is a blues:
- standard blues opening on a slightly out of tune guitar
- ‘I woke up, this morning’ (standard opening)
- standard end on a slightly out of tune guitar

Loud applause from the public.
Hey you guys in the mobile unit outside, are you ready? As an intro.

Nowhere to be found on YouTube.
From the rocking duck album: gruesome. ‘The very next day he grew some’.
Yes yes I confess, I’m a HUGE fan!

Is there somebody who no’s (!!!) what I’m talking about and who can help out?
Thank you!
Kind regards, Gus

@Bill
@MrBouzouki
@everybody


At long last, somebody had the decency to post this on YouTube.

When I listened 5 minutes ago, I was the 37th listener.
Boooo to yououou English people for your careless disrespect where the epic British blues is concerned.

Stack, boom, sushhhhh:



Grimms line up:
Adrian Henri
Brian Patten
Roger McGough (hero)
John Gorman
Michael McGear
Zoot Money piano guitar
Neil Innes (Hero) piano guitar
Michael Giles drums
John Megginson piano bass

P island record 1973 and on the Help label (Help11)
And proudly on my turntable!
Enjoy.
Kind regards, Gus



Edit: I’m going to start @MrBouzouki ’s week with a blast! Love to hear if you’re a blues fan too, Mr. B!

All this nonsense of sincerity and goodwill at the beginning of a new year is grabbing me by the throat. Time for some antidote.

It’s far better to steal creatively than to fail miserably.
And if John Lennon is stealing from Chuck Berry, why not let The Bonze Dog Doo Dah Band steal from John Lennon.
Right?

OK, here goes:



Kind regards. Gus

My humor? Dutch humor?
When you’re painting, and your insight in your work changes, and you painting on t op of something else to make your work better, that is repenting.

Nowadays x ray examination makes insight in that process possible. And very interesting.

The word for altering the post eluded me. Hence I improvised.
This is what language makes possible.
Statistics and arithmetic are rigid sports.
So I am not interested.

And you knew this all along @Bill
I wish you a beautiful Monday!
Kind regards, Gus

Forgot to mention that the correct expression in painting is: ‘pentimento’. @Bill

Time for a new post in the Kitchen’s world famous Understanding English Humor.
Among musicians, the yardstick for the combi Music and Humor is the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.

One of my favourites:

Ali Baba’s Camel

You've heard of Ali Baba
Forty thieves had he
Out for what we all want
Lots of LSD

He also had a camel
Stole it from a zoo
How he loved the camel
And the camel loved him too
(Oh, how the camel loved Ali Baba!)

Ali Baba's camel loved Ali Baba so
No matter where he went to the camel had to go
Some say he's in heaven, but this I know is true
Wherever you think Ali's gone, his camel's gone there too

Crossing the equator, ooh, how hot it was
Poor old Ali Baba cursed and swore because
He was so very thirsty, and everybody knows
It's horrible to walk for miles with sand between your toes
(Oh, how the camel loved Ali Baba!)

Ali Baba's camel turned 'round and licked his hand
He said, "Oh Ali Baba, I surely understand
We must find an oasis and get a drink somehow
But hark, I hear the temple bells, they'll all be open now."
(Bleah bleah. Glorious beer, fills you right up with it... aaahh)




Enjoy!
Kind regards, Gus


Edit:
You’d be surprised if you only knew how often people (not being part of the kitchen) listen.
Sometimes they message or give a call.
As like today. Out for what we all want, lots of LSD is causing confusion. How come that the 1931 sports the same line?
Contrary to popular belief the line "out for what we all want, lots of LSD" does not refer to the psychedelic drug, but to British money at the time in Latin. LSD = Librae Solidi Denarii (Pounds Shillings Pence). Also called: pound £ sterling and now GBPound.
Even The Pretty Things had a£sd song, escaping BBC’s scrutiny in the 60’s. Listen to the Pretty Things and you’re in for a surprise.
‘Nuff said.
