Freaked Time Signatures...

I’m a former Halifax Bank Of Scotland customer - but I really love the creativity of the Halifax adverts, particularly the new “We Are Saving” campaign.

However, when they bastardise the standard 4/4 time signature of the song that they’re covering in order to get more words in (and therefore produce an advert that costs less because they’re dropping 2 beats out of every few bars), it really makes me cringe.

I really don’t appreciate this kind of corner-cutting, particularly as I’m a musician myself.

A Virgo musician at that.

Wii be sweaty...

Who needs to go to the gym when we are getting a fantastic workout from the Wii?

And I don’t mean the WiiFit either, as we haven’t even got that out of the box yet!! No, I’m referring to the game that came free with the Wii, WiiSports! One game of boxing, baseball and bowling, and I’m just dripping. Yum.

I did the Wii Fitness earlier on too (in WiiSports, not WiiFit) and apparently I have a Wii Fitness Age of 75!!

Stuff that... I’ll show ‘em...
