Police Seek Numpty

by The Madhatters

200pxbank-robbery-cartoon-western-times-36267305modern technology has no doubt improved our lives in many ways from that of our fore-bearers

but in some respects, the old ways are still the best

who doesn’t remember watching movies of the old west when thieving toerags pulled a bandana up over the lower part of their face and a stetson down over the eyes to mask their appearance?

it may be old hat now but it did a better job of hiding one’s identity than does the modern practice of sticking a clear plastic bag on your head . . . http://tinyurl.com/pn2ygrc

Cruel to be Kind

6rphsqnl_largethe old adage ‘the camera never lies’ may well have been true pre-photoshop days but no longer can one trust the image in front of us

even when the pic has not been doctored, it may be open to differing interpretations

all is not always as it seems

take the pic of 26 yr old Zhang Yanrong

for the last 20 yrs, her parents have kept her chained to a tree in their garden

Periods Don’t Have Glitter On Them

by The Madhatters

people mature at different rates

and when all your class mates have started menstruating and you haven’t, I imagine it causes some degree of mental angst – after all, no-one likes to be the odd one out in a group

so what do you do ?

well you could lie to your friends and pretend you’ve had your 1st period – but don’t try to fool your mum !

[o.k. this isn't real - it's an ad, but it's still funny]

Rethink Homelessness

by The Madhatters

there are many things that separate us from one-another but one thing we have in common is our humanity

sadly, all too often this is overlooked as we make snap judgements about people based on their appearance

there are far too many people living on the street but most of us pretend they aren’t there. We walk past, avoiding eye-contact, deaf to their entreaties – reluctant to engage with them

this video seeks to remind us that the ‘homeless’ are people like you and I, who have had the misfortune to fall on hard times

Something for the Weekend – No 120

by The Madhatters

way back in the 80s, I was a great fan of Suzanne Vega – so much so that a Canadian friend bought a couple of tickets for us to go see Suzanne Vega in concert – even though she herself had not yet heard of her

the concert was superb.

Suzanne and her band were as good live as they were in a recording studio and they gave a stunning performance of this song about the Queen and the Soldier

much as I love the original, though – I love this cover version better

Don’t forget, if you want to listen again to previous weekend songs, go to the ‘category filter’ on the side bar and select ‘something for weekend’ from the drop down list

And be sure to post your own favourite song(s) in the comment section to this post
