It’s the atomic number of nitrogen, the name of an album by James, the number of inches in diameter of the first piece of recorded music I ever bought, the number of colours in a rainbow, the number that Kenny Dalglish wore on his shirt, and if I had to choose a lucky number, it’d be it.
Flip Flop Flyin’ is seven years old today.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to have a look at the web site and go through my favourite things, kinda like a sitcom that does a clip show.
Pete & Bob episode 5
Not sure why I like this one more than the others. Perhaps it’s cos I enjoyed chopping together the music, but it’s probably the tear at the end that does it.
I’m Feeling Fine Now
Another one where I had fun making the music. It’s Motörhead’s guitars, Toni Basil’s drums and Jon Spencer’s scream if you’re interested.
Ghost of Hawdin’s Wood
A reminder that pretty things are good, and that being a grumpy bastard wasn’t always the case.
This was unexpectedly popular when I first put it online. Totally caught me off guard, that. Still nowhere near closer to getting a statue, mind.
Ghosts are Rubbish at Squash
Perhaps the earliest thing I’m proud of. I think I did this in FFF’s first year. Not sure where the idea came from, just one of those sentences that popped into my head.
It’s a good sign that something I made recently is one of my favourite things.
W&W;’s Trophiest Trophy
Technically, the best drawing I’ve ever done.
My favourite blog moment. A bored Saturday and a love of The Boss come together.
Cheap Space Documentary
I wish I’d recorded the sound better. One day I’ll go all George Lucas and re-do it so you can actually hear what’s being said properly.
Fun Fun Fun
And finally, this was kinda the moment when I realised that my little hobby was taking on a life of its own.
Have a good weekend.
