Believe it or not I am in the middle of designing Christmas stamps!…hold on it’s April isn’t it?!
So today with the sun beaming through the windows i have been sat here listening to Christmas carols on my I Pod (thanks Lindsay) and trying to get inspiration. I may even put the Christmas tree up tomorrow for added effect!
It’s 23:40 and the eyes are giving up now so it’s time to call it a day but before i go i just want to say a few words about YouTube and the music copyright restriction. Now I understand that if I am using music to promote a product then it should be paid for or have no restrictions, but last week i posted a short video of my daughters birthday which had a background track called “Know body knows you when your down & out” by Eric Clapton. This lasted online for 5 minutes before the music had been totally wiped by YouTube..it’s such a shame they can’t distinguish between the two….just a thought!
Anyway I was pleased to find one of my favourite records still on YouTube tonight called Martha by Tom Waits, how long this will last on there I don’t know but its a great song and story. Here is the sentiment given by the person that posted it…
' MARTHA' IS ONE OF THOSE RARE SONGS THAT IS PERFECT. TOM WAITS IS A GENIUS. YES, I AM 64 AND WE ALL HAVE A MARTHA ....LOST OR UNREQUITED LOVE AS THE MAN SAID. HEARD THIS ONE NIGHT IN THE EARLY 1970'S...MADE ME THINK AND CRY..CALLED MY ' MARTHA' THE OTHER DAY....SHE PASSED AWAY A YEAR AGO....LIVE MY FRIENDS..LAUGH AND LOVE....WE ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH....
