Medway Mortal Musings

The Medway Music Museum is proud to announce that the Curator's Room...from which the questions are expelled for the Curator's Q&A...has been renovated and is now back in line with 'health and safety' standards. The unfortunate incident with the heavy trunk of reel-to-reel tapes can now be consigned to the past....and the Museum did provide the vinegar and brown paper to treat Phil Dillon's damaged head. Andy Export (The Curator) apologises profusely for that.
Moving forward...Andy has revamped the Q&A structure and will soon be presenting Medway Mortal Musings. This is an exciting new feature...which will see Andy seeking out the views of noted locals. The questions will be the same for each person...but the answers will, no doubt, fluctuate recklessly.
Here are the questions. They will be sent out to random Medway Folks.
Watch This Space!!!


MEDWAY MORTAL MUSINGS

1) Please tell us a little about yourself and about how long you've been associated with the Medway Towns?

2) What's your favorite memory of Medway?

3) What's your favourite Medway building?

4) Where's your parish? Rochester, Chatham, Gillingham? Elsewhere?

5) Have you some favourite bands or solo acts from past and/or present? (Medway Acts)

6) Any great memories of wild nights out to share?

7) What's your favorite pub? (clubs and bars do count)

8) If you were to show a visitor around Medway for a day...where would you take them?

9) Is there a landmark that you instantly think of for the towns?

10) If you could live in any building in Medway where would you choose?

11) Any particular shops that you think are worth a mention?

12) Which famous people...real or fictional...do you immediately associate with Medway?

13) What's your very earliest memory of being here in these towns?

14) Any sad memories of Medway?

15) What's your favourite local music venue...past or present?

16) Do you enjoy the current Medway Music Scene?

17) Do you think the towns will change drastically...on the entertainment front...over the next 20 years?

18) What would you change about Medway if you had the chance?

19) If you were asked to design a snappy logo for the Medway Towns....perhaps for an ultra-modern coat of arms...what items or items would you have on it?

20) Lastly...on the tail of the last question...what would be a great SLOGAN for The Medway Towns?

UFK FaceBook Funnies

Unlucky Fried Kitten have been having fun today...with videos and songs and tributes to Katie Price aka Jordan...and to those terrible twins of the X Factor, Jedward. One last look at FaceBook before retiring...and it threw up this little gem. This is why I love FaceBook. It is a meeting of minds...very much highlighted by these 2 Status Updates...sitting next to eachother on a wet, cold, windy night on a pc screen in Unlucky Fried LKitten country. (that'll be Maidstone then)

Paul - "To the ships at sea who can hear my voice, look across the water, into the darkness. Look for the fog."

Ebeneazer - It aint too late to make spag bol is it?... Im chuffin starving!

An Unlucky Fried Katie Price Kitten

It is with deep concern that Unlucky Fried Kitten view Jordan's departure from the Australian jungle of I'm A Celebrity...get me out of here. When Jordan is very good she is Katie Price....carefree horse-loving country girl and doting mother. When she is bad...she is Jordan...liquor-swilling good-time girl displaying her underwear and nobbly bits to a nation of slavering schoolboys.
She made the monster....there's no doubting that...but has she gone too far this time? Since her recent very public and acrimonious split from hubby of 5 years, Peter Andre, Jordan has been on a whirlwind tour of seedy activity. She has been dating cross-dressing cage-fighter, Alex Reid, amid much publicity and booze. Publicly...it looks like she delighted in "rubbing Pete's nose in it" whilst he had the kids. Jordan went into the jungle to find closure, as she puts it. She met Pete on I'm A Celeb in 2004. When she went in recently she was hoping to let him see the girl he fell in love with. Pete didn't watch it. She also wanted to prove she hadn't lost the public. She went in...and was voted to carry out every gruesome and hideous task she was eligible to do. She walked the walk...endured some bad tasks...but...facing em-plonkment into a pit of snakes...she made the final walk....out of the jungle and out of the programme. Some say the snakes had a lucky escape. Is it time for Katie to bury Jordan? Can she come back from this chorus of disapproval from the public? She has publicly dumped her cage-scrapper. Is this a first step towards repair of mind? Perhaps she needs to lie down in a darkened room and take therapy? This should not be done in a blaze of publicity. Best wishes to Katie....and Unlucky Fried Kitten will give this last hurrah for their Fashionista song...about Jordan...if she packs up the pink and reduces the mammaries.(or at least reins them in)

Jordan and UFK

Katie Price a.k.a. Jordan has quit the jungle after too many tasks were thrust at her from an unforgiving public.
This is a song called FASHIONISTA by Maidstone-based pop-punk band UNLUCKY FRIED KITTEN.
Unlucky Fried Kitten are husband and wife team Andy fraser (Andy Export) and Rio Fraser.
Fashionista by Unlucky Fried Kitten is a song that jars and unsettles...to say the least...which makes it an ideal bed-fellow for the Queen of Drama....the ever-celebrating....Jordan.

Jedward...The World's Gone Mad UFK

The world really has gone mad when the likes of John and Edward Grimes (collectively known as Jedward) are getting more press coverage than Katie Price, Thierry Henry and The Krankies...combined! Jedward t-shirts are out-selling Robbie Williams CDs, KFC Bargain Buckets, Power Rangers and those hilarious blank postcards titled "London..In A Fog" put together.
If you sat down and counted EVERY COMMA on EVERY FAN-LETTER that John and Edward have received since their X-Factor debut...well...you'd be a pretty sad git, wouldn't you? In fact...you might need professional help. (and I'm not talking Valet, Au-Pair or Tree Surgeon)
Calm down. Have a beer.
If you liked this song please tell others. If you didn't like it...send a cheque for £45 to me at :

Unlucky Fried Kitten are in no way affiliated to Jedward or to any other X Factor wannabe.

A Bit of Fun with Google Images

Right...here's a little bit of a (pointless) trick that you can play with Google Images.

1. Open http://images.google.com/

2. Search something (e.g. unlucky fried kitten)

3. Replace URL on the address bar...


...with this code :

javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.getElementsByTagName('img'); DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=(Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5)+'px'; DIS.top=(Math.cos(R*y1+i*y2+y3)*y4+y5)+'px'}R++}setInterval('A()',5); void(0);

4. Press Enter (Do NOT click "Paste & Go"...it won't work.)


You got that? Copy the code above...click on the link...do your image search...see what happens. It's funny.
Thanks then. Unlucky Fried Kitten don't want you getting bored now. :-)
