Things that are making me happy this week: Cover Songs

I'm down the country hanging out in the parental abode, which limits my access to all things internet.. This is why this week's happy thoughts are delayed by a few days. 

This week I need those happy thoughts as the 'No to Equality' campaign in Ireland is ramping up it's anti-marriage equality horrorshow and the case brought against the Irish Government by survivors of symphysiotomy was dismissed from the High Court.. yay for this little country.. 


Anyway, to counteract the misery, I have been listening to music, more specifically to cover songs. Himself indoors is a fan of unusual cover songs and knowing my love for Uptown Funk (It's been stuck in my head for weeks and I am still not sick of it), he sent me a link to this version of it by Pomplamoose (if you have not heard of Pomplamoose, consider this your prompt to go and watch all of their tunes.. - fair warning, they are strange, but in a good way).

I spend a lot of time in the cinema, due to having the World of Cine annual pass. I do like me a good film (best film I've seen recently is the Spooks one staring Jon Snow - who knows some things in this film), but seeing more than one film a week does mean that I see so many bad ads, and I see them often. When a good, or at least not boring one, pops up, it is noticeable. There's one for Lynx out at the moment, that is not brilliant, but does contain this intriguing cover of Guns N' Roses Welcome to the Jungle that I am a small bit obsessed with. I probably shouldn't like it, but I do. The band is Novo Amor, and it's just mesmerising..  

That's mostly it from me this week, but I feel that I must leave you with this last piece of Irishness (awful sad.. that's right, that's right, that's right)
