About

Always growing older - never growing up.

Eclectic random geekery: Star Wars, Doctor Who, Sci-Fi, science, photography, LEGO, and stupid, stupid things.

This is my personal opinion / reblogging blog. If you're after my personal photos or awful photoshop creations, the links are below.

(waves his hand as he smiles knowingly)...

This isn't the tumblr you're looking for.

Move along.

LIKE YOU CARE...

As they say in the classics "I'm too old for this shit".

That said, I live in sunny Brisbane (Australia), forging a career in advertising / marketing whilst enjoying life as it comes.

I take photos on my iPhone, listen to (a lot of) music on my iPhone, and like Star Wars. So yes, I'm a geek.

That's about it.

Party on!

Courageous &amp; Contentious Covers - presented by Sonos 
I for one prefer k.d. Lang&#8217;s version of Hallelujah over Jeff Buckley&#8217;s, and I really don&#8217;t think Jimi Hendrix&#8217;s &#8220;All Along the Watchtower&#8221; should be on the &#8220;most faithful&#8221; side of the covers.
Notable ommisions: &#8220;Twist &amp; Shout&#8221; by The Beatles (original by Top Notes), &#8220;A Little Help From My Friends&#8221; by Joe Cocker (original by The Beatles), &#8220;Stand by Me&#8221; by John Lennon (original by Ben E King), &#8220;Unchained Melody&#8221; by The Righteous Brothers (original by Todd Duncan), &#8220;Mrs Robinson&#8221; by The Lemonheads (original by Simon &amp; Garfunkel), &#8220;Proud Mary&#8221; by Ike and Tina Turner (original by Creedence Clearwater Revival), &#8220;Venus&#8221; by Bananarama (original by Shocking Blue), &#8220;Mickey&#8221; by Toni Basil (original called &#8220;Kitty&#8221; by Racey), &#8220;Nothing Compares 2 U&#8221; by Sinead O&#8217;Conner (original by The Family), &#8220;Common People&#8221; by William Shatner (original by Blur), &#8220;Jealous Guy&#8221; by Roxy Music&#8221; (original by John Lennon), &#8220;Try a Little Tenderness&#8221; by Otis Redding (Original by Ray Noble/Bing Crosby), &#8220;Take Me TO The River&#8221; by Talking Heads (original by Al Green), &#8220;Always on my Mind&#8221; by Pet Shop Boys (original by Brenda Lee), &#8220;Girl, You’ll Be a Woman Soon&#8221; by Urge Overkill (original by Neil Diamond), &#8220;Money&#8221; by The Flying Lizards (original by The Beatles), &#8220;American Woman&#8221; by Lenny Dravitz (original by Guess Who), &#8220;Everytime You Go Away&#8221; by Paul Young (original by Hall &amp; Oates), &#8220;Everybody’s Talkin&#8217;&#8221; by Harry Nilsson (original by Fred Neil), &#8220;Kiss&#8221; by Art of Noise feat Tom Jones (original by Prince), &#8220;Higher Ground&#8221; by Red Hot Chilli Peppers (original by Stevie Wonder), &#8220;Killing Me Softly With His Song by The Fugees (original by Lori Lieberman), &#8220;If You Don&#8217;t Know Me By Now&#8221; by Simply Red (original by Harold Melvin &amp; Blue Notes), &#8220;Got My Mind Set on You&#8221; by George Harrison (original by James Ray), &#8220;Suspicious Minds&#8221; by Fine Young Cannibals (original by Mark James), &#8220;Everybody Knows&#8221; by Concrete Blonde (original by Leonard Cohen), &#8220;Live And Let Die&#8221; by Guns N&#8217; Roses (Original by Paul McCartney &amp; Wings), &#8220;Real Wild Child (Wild One)&#8221; by Iggy Pop (original by Johnny O&#8217;Keefe), &#8220;Istanbul (not Constantinople)&#8221; by They Might Be Giants (original by The Four Lads), &#8220;Red Red Wine&#8221; by UB40 (original by Tony Tribe), &#8220;Gone Daddy Gone&#8221; by Gnarls Barkley (original by The Violent Femmes), &#8220;I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself&#8221; by The White Stripes (original by Dusty Springfield), &#8220;Hazy Shade of Winter&#8221; by The Bangles (original by Simon &amp; Garfunkel), &#8220;I Feel for You&#8221; by Chaka Khan (original by Prince), &#8220;Billy Jean&#8221; by Chris Cornell (original by Michael Jackson).

Buy them collected into a book (20p paperback).
