Lunedi Lunacy

This post is one that should please and perhaps startle my faithful reader.  It certainly should please the gentle reader that is fond of cats (even stuffed); and also bring a certain level of delight to that reader who has a penchant for Judy Garland, The Wizard of Oz or Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg’s Over the Rainbow.

Apparently Henry Dagg and his Katzenklavier have performed at Clarence House to the delight of the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

And for those of you who can’t get enough of Mr Dagg and his Catastrophony he begins the next set with Over the Rainbow but only as a lead in to The Dambuster’s March.

Lest you think that Mr Dagg is simply a novelty performer he is former BBC sound engineer who has branched out into sound sculpture and builder of experimental musical instruments. He has given an interesting Ted Talk on his passion and career that can be found on YouTube.

On this day in 1858:  Charles Darwin receives a paper from Alfred Russel Wallace that includes nearly identical conclusions about evolution as Darwin’s own, prompting Darwin to publish his theory.

  1. Well now, with that delightful rendition of a true classic, I shall retire tonight with an ear worm which would surely bring Toto to his knees!

  2. I thoroughly recommend the latest episode we’ve watched of ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.’ an outrageous sitcom which frequently has us crying with laughter. One of the many attempts to gain attention through news or filming is a cat-slicing machine (fortunately it doesn’t get far). This is now our comedy of choice, especially as ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ has so gone off the boil (Titus Andromedon needs his own show).

  3. As you may know, one of my favorite expressions (attributed to Dickens) is a noise or din loud enough to resemble ‘an orchestra of scorched cats” I loved this!!
