Cheryl Ladd turns 65

Cheryl Ladd

Cheryl Ladd in 1978 recently.

Fifteen years ago today, I noted in utter astonishment that Cheryl Ladd had just turned 50.

I'm no mathematician, but I reckon that makes Cheryl Ladd 65 years young today.

And I'm now 51, which makes me older than Cheryl Ladd was when I was astonished at her being 50 just a few short years ago.

None of this makes any sense.

Anyway, in celebration of this remarkable event, here is what was always my favourite track from Cheryl's eponymous first album.

The track is called Skinnydippin'.

To be honest, that is almost certainly why it was my favourite.

Many happy returns, Cheryl.

Apologies for the lack of updates: I've been getting my head around a brand new computer and a brand new operating system. Normal disservice will resume soon. In the meantime, here's a quick video I put together of a whistle-stop tour Jen and I made of Capri in 2010:

It's that time of year again. Here is my fifth annual video slideshow review of the year:

Consistent almost to a fault, as per the previous four years' slideshows, this year's slideshow contains 97 photos.

Once again, I composed the ambient pap backing track on my iPad. It is called Afghanman Style.

I know what you're wondering: what if the Fall were playing Glastonbury, and Mark E Smith suddenly took it into his head that he'd like to perform an unplanned rendition of Captain Beefheart & the Magic Band's Dropout Boogie?

The result, I should imagine, would go something like this.
