Icelandic Hymn in Train Station.


An 800-Year-Old Hymn Is Sung In A Train Station. This Was So Amazing, These Guys Gave Me Chills!

This in incredible and so, so beautiful!

These kinds of things don’t happen every day, so when the group Árstíðir went into a train station in Wuppertal, Germany and sang the 13th century Icelandic hymn “Heyr himna smiður”, it blew everyone away!

Clearly NOT a Norwegian Blue! – LOLLL

From I fucking love science:

Stephen Fry is having fun here!

Kakapo humps zoologist

While most zoologists are content to just sit back and watch the process, a particular Kakapo named Sirocco seems to have decided that Mark Carwardine would benefit by playing a more interactive role in his mating process. Stephen Fry could hardly contain himself as he watched the bird mount and then hump Carwardine.

Monty Python release new song and announce final live show

Thursday 3rd April 2014 @ 6:30pm

Monty Python - 21st November 2013. Image shows from L to R: Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, Carol Cleveland, Terry Gilliam, John Cleese.

Monty Python have revealed The Silly Walks Song – a brand new music track.

Primarily written for the sketch group to perform at their live stage shows in July, The Silly Walks Song is the first new creation from the comedy team since the 1980s. Eric Idle joked on Twitter: “First new Python material in a thousand years.”

A music video to showcase the release has been uploaded to YouTube (see the bottom of this story), with the visual montage presented in it featuring scenes from the Python films and TV series mixed with other stock footage.

The Silly Walks Song comments on society’s links with money and on the group’s reformation for a series of highly-paid O2 gigs this summer. Lyrics include “Money is the root of all evil – money is the fruit of sin – money is the root of everything.” and “Boring. Boring. Boring. Work all day, earn your bread… till you finally drop down dead.”

The track is one of five that will appear on Monty Python Sings (Again) – a forthcoming re-mastered, extended re-release of the 1989 album Monty Python Sings.

Eric Idle has been working on the new tracks with John Du Prez. The composer, who is a long-time friend of Idle, created the score to the group’s last film, the 1983 release Monty Python’s The Meaning Of Life. He also created Brian Song for Monty Python’s Life Of Brian and, more recently, worked with Idle to create the Python-linked stage musical Spamalot.

R.I.P. Carolina Slim!


He Played Blues Concerts Where the Admission Price Was Subway Fare

By FEB. 20, 2014


Carolina Slim appeared at Avery Fisher Hall once, but mostly he plugged in his guitar and performed underground. Not in one of those clubs in a subbasement with a two-drink minimum. In subway stations.

His real name was Elijah Staley, and for more than 20 years, he was a mainstay of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Music Under New York program, which arranges performances in subway stations. Union Square, Times Square, Grand Central Terminal, Bowling Green, Columbus Circle — he happily turned them into blues halls.

“He set a very high bar,” said Tim Higginbotham, a consultant who handles day-to-day scheduling for Music Under New York, which dates to the mid-1980s.

Mr. Staley died on Sunday in Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens. He was 87. His funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday at Merrick Park Baptist Church, in Jamaica. The closest subway stop is Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer on the E line, about two miles away.

“People think I got to play in the subway,” he said in an interview in 2002. “I don’t got to play in the subway. I want to play in the subway.”
