With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“She was confusing you, using you, you couldn’t understand” January 2, 2014


teenage-fanclub-grand-prix-bigScottish band Teenage Fanclub‘s rather excellent 1995 album ‘Grand Prix‘, their fifth, was apparently given it’s title as a joke. The band claim that they wanted to hear Americans call the album ‘Grand Pricks’.

teenage-fanclub-2The album reached number seven in the UK album charts and often makes it on to many best album listings. Nigel Hitchcock played alto-saxophone on the LP and in the same year he appeared on releases from Linda Lewis, the Boo Radleys, Cher and Take That.

 

“Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly, a girl with kaleidoscope eyes” June 9, 2010


This is a post about kaleidoscopes, the reason for which will become clear later. So let’s start with a definition shall we?

Kaleidoscope (ka – lei – do – scope)
–noun
1. an optical instrument in which fragments of glass, held loosely at the end of a rotating tube, are shown in continually changing symmetrical forms by reflection in two or more mirrors set at angles to each other.
2. a continually changing pattern of shapes and colors.
3. a constantly shifting pattern, or scene.

I could add a fourth here which would say 4. the best Virtual Assistant on the planet with the best Virtual Assistant Website on the planet.

So have you guessed what this post is about yet? Well let me tell you, it’s to introduce you to Kaleidoscope Business Services new website. The home of a brilliant VA service provided by none other than the wonderful Catwoman. OK a confession here, it’s me that calls her the Catwoman, actually this wonderful lady and terrific VA is really called Catherine. Click here to go to the new Kaleidoscope Business Services website and below is one of Catherine’s extremely informative and useful videos

Obviously this is not really a business blog so take some time out to enjoy a few kaleidoscope related songs
