Flip Flop Flying

Imagine a snappy title here

with 15 comments

A bunch of new and slightly-less-new Minipops for you today.
The new ones: Tip-top short stop for them wonderful New York Yankees, Derek Jeter; a new version of Franz Ferdinand; eighties band that I always disliked, Eurythmics (although I do like Stevie Wonder’s harmonica solo on that song about the angel playing with my heart); Bruce Willis as John McClane in Die Hard With A Vengeance; and Japanese PM Junichiro Koizumi.
The slightly less new ones, ie. ones that I did to go in frames that helped decorate the Yahoo! Music penthouse when I was in Miami, including Diddy, Jay Z, Kanyé West, John Legend, and the Einstein of pop, Jessica Simpson.

Also, as you might suspect from all the hoo-haw I made about it the last couple of days, the third On This Day piece for de Volkskrant is online today, in Dutch, on their Oog page (English version here). Today’s is my favourite of the five that I’ve done for them, so it’s all downhill from here, kids.

Finally, a nice fellow over at londonist.com wrote such a nice piece about Flip Flop Flyin’ the other day that my rampaging ego demands that I link it.

  8. Craig!

    I can’t belive I was in Berlin last weekend and I didn’t try to contact you to thank you again for my copy of the Minipops book!

    I hope you are doing fine there, it is a wonderful city!

    Hugs,

    Laura (the girl at Books Etc. Bayswater, London)

  9. Hi Craig!
    I like today’s Oog!!!
    There is a translation mistake in the Dutch version though: the “In Cambodia… ” line has it’s verb in the wrong position…

    I know, I’m a wanker for telling this.

    Sorry Craig

  10. Tori – Thank you.
    Fluffe – Oh, the pressure to deliver! Iinsert dramatic fainting action here.)
    Laura – That’s a shame, hope you had fun.
    Frans – Don’t worry, I don’t speak Dutch, so someone else translated it…

  13. Hi

    I’m not the Alex that did the review (although I might have been)… Almost forgot about that Face feature that got me writing FFF into my browser first…

    I do agree wholeheartedly with all alex said – and I might add I’m enjoying your blog on the same level!

    Cheers

    Alex
