Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

It’s still January and yet, I am sick to death of politics.

Sadly, the primary wars are just like major car wrecks: you can’t help but stop and take a quick peek, no matter how gruesome the carnage may be.

The same can be said for my penchant for watching bad musical movies. And it’s not just “musicals”, per se, it’s any movie where the central focus is music. Today’s musical interlude comes from the movie, “Music and Lyrics” and it’s a song by a fake band for a fake song “written in 1984”. I am also noticing that lately, I have a fascination with that year. I have not decided whether it’s because of the continuous repetition, of late, of Orwell’s name or his book, titled, “1984” or whether it’s the fact that 1984 is when I started my “Wonder Years”.

I must warn you that you might want to cut down on the sugar in your morning cuppa, because today’s bit of youtubery has an extra dose of saccharin (this video is probably not safe for diabetics): Hugh Grant – pop goes my heart.

I know that some of you will feel the need to run a couple of extra laps after watching that, so when you come back, the following Ten Post Round-Up will be sitting here waiting for you:
