Real Neat Blog Award, congratulations, nominees!


Real Neat Blog Award

Late in 2014, I made this new award: the Real Neat Blog Award. There are so many bloggers whose blogs deserve more attention. So, I will try to do something about that 🙂

It is the first award that I ever made. I did some computer graphics years ago, before I started blogging; but my computer drawing had become rusty 🙂

1. Put the award logo on your blog.

2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.

3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.

4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs; and asking them seven questions.

5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

My seven questions are:

1. Where do most visits to your blog come from?

2. What is your favourite sport?

3. What has been a special moment for you so far in 2020?

4. What is your favourite quote?

5. What was your favourite class when still at school?

British Conservative coronavirus mismanagement, parody song


This 18 April 2020 satirical music video from Britain is about the British Conservative government’s mismanagement of the coronavirus crisis.

It is a parody of the song Little Lies by Fleetwood Mac.

It says about itself:

Fleetwood Matt – Massive Lies

[British Conservative Health Secretary] Matt Hancock‘s Fleetwood Mac tribute band.

LYRICS:

If I could wave a wand
Get drugs from across the pond
Then I would ramp it up
Hydroxy, droxy chloroquine

I’ll just blame the NHS
And promise a squillion tests
Words are meaningless
Blatant, blatant, blatant lies

Telling lies, telling sweet massive lies
(Massive lies, massive massive lies)
Matt Hancock’s mad stary eyes
Mad stary eyes, crazy stary eyes

Although I’m not making plans
I hope that you understand
There’s a reason why
Don’t need to, need to change that bit

There’s plenty of PPE
And care homes are fine, really
We take this seriously
Massive, massive, massive lies

Telling lies, telling sweet massive lies
(Massive lies, massive massive lies)
We’ll ask around, see what we can cadge
Now have a badge
Have a fucking badge
Telling lies, telling sweet massive lies
