Donna Summer and the Cultural Olympian
Sooty the Cat and (Chico) the Chicken
Sometimes a man has to do what a man has to do, so last night I did what a man has to do which in my case was to carry on making cardboard legs and part of a foot. Well when I say foot it was more a foot in a running shoe because a Cultural Olympian needs running shoes. I was planning to make a pair of cardboard Nike shoes, but they (Nike) are well funny about copyright, so they many have to a pair of Nicked shoes instead. Know what I mean A….. A….. Gov.
Today was sort of a grey day again and all was as it should be, well up to now anyway, and I am going to vanish off and make more bits of the Cultural Olympian so today is a very very quick visit to the wondrous world of cyberspace and my diary. As it happens the wondrous world of cyberspace can be jolly hard work at times, which is all a bit strange bearing in mind that it has very few moving part and mainly consists of electrons and the like and most of us stumble about in the dark not knowing what we are doing. Thinking about it that sounds like real live too so maybe they are the same except for the moving parts I’m sure real life has more moving parts. As it happens the Cultural Olympian does not have moving parts because I don’t have the time, although I have a plan to make a geared machine with loads of moving parts in cardboard but that is very much for the future and not now.
It appears the Queen of Disco (Donna Summer) died today. However in the wondrous world of cyberspace she continues to make music. And by a strange coincidence I was given some old HiFi this morning from back in the day when the Queen of Disco was at her best.
