Ewan McGregor Becomes OBE-Wan Kenobi

Yes, Ewan McGregor has been made OBE in the New Year Honours List. So he is now OBE-Wan Kenobi.

Here's a pic I made years ago, which now seems oddly prophetic (although Alec Guiness would be CBE-Wan Kenobi which doesn't really have the same ring to it)

Bath Spa

Been to Bath today. Very interesting to learn about the spring and the Roman baths, but there were a couple of problems:

1 - They give you electronic "tour guide" things that give you information about the various things as you look around (including some interesting bits by Bill Bryson), but they look like massive 80s mobile phones, which makes everyone there look like disinterested yuppies.

- At the end, you get to drink some of the water from the hot spring - it's warm, salty and thoroughly unpleasant. There were some of the staff standing near the drinking fountain, which raised the age old question - spit, or swallow?

All in all, an interesting place to visit, but thanks to the last bit, the Bath Spa experience leaves a bitter taste in the mouth. Bring gum :)

Jubilee Song 2012 - for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

I've recorded a special song for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee (with a little help from Songify). I think you'll agree it's something special :)

Have a listen now:

Once you've been dazzled by my vocal skills, you may want to download the Songify app yourself and have a go - it's available from the android market:

Monarchy In The UK - a song for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Union Jack

I've written a song for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, to the tune of Anarchy In The UK by the Sex Pistols. 

I picked them because as far as I can remember,  they love the Queen (and her fabulous regime).

Monarchy In The UK
By the No-sex Pistols (We’re British)

I like my fruit-buns iced
I am a Monarchist
Bunting’s what I want and
I know how to get it
I wanna street party cos I

wanna HAVE a cup o’ tea!
Not a coffee!

Monarchy for the U.K, been here some time and maybe
I have a nice time, hope the weather’s fine
your future dream is a scone and cream

'cos it’s the Queens Jubilee…monarchy!
For the country

How many ways to get what you want
I use the best I use the rest
I want an OBE,
I love Monarchy cos it’s

The Queen’s Jubilee… Monarchy!

Is this an MBE
Or is this an OBE
Or is this a CBE
I thought it was the U.K or just
another country
another cake n cup o’ tea

Queen’s Jubilee…Monarchy!
Yeah Queen’s Jubilee, Monarchy!
Know what I mean
And I’m gonna be… Monarchist!
