Photo A Day - Days 51 & 52

Once again I have taken the photos each day.

Day 51 - A photo that reflects your favourite band name.

Well I really struggled with this one. 
My favourite band - I decided on the band I have seen live most often - Cradle of Filth 
I just couldn't work out a photo composition for that. 

With Mr Mouses help I went down the CD rack looking at band names:
Slayer (thought I could use one of the swords!)
White Stripes (thought about painting white stripes on a cat!)
Iron Maiden (a maiden and an iron!)
Guns and Roses (well flint lock pistol and leather roses...)
Professor Elemental (pith helmet...)
Bon Jovi
....the list goes on.

I listen to a pretty eclectic range of music but at my core I am a rock chick (with a strong leaning towards heavy metal and a pinch of classical) so I came up with this (Mr Mouse helped with the suggestion and Ferd was very good):

Permission to Rock

Day 52 - A photo that describes your favourite song.

Again another puzzle - what is my favourite song? Well I don't really know. I have songs of the moment, songs  for occasions.

Well as I thought about what's on the car iPod at the moment and the track that I am sooo not tired of listening to:

Cup of Brown Joy - Professor Elemental

[spoken:] Love a cup. I would--oh God, yes. Oh, that is gorgeous, yeah.

I need a cup of the brown stuff, the shade of an acorn
Made warm by the same source that I take my cakes from
Using a teapot, a mug or fine china
Been hooked up to IVs, need constant supplies

And a drip for my urges might verge on perverted
But for earthy brown tea, I'm certain it's worth it!
With Sherpas who work herds and use a fresh fountain
I've discerned brews from Peruvian mountains

I've slurped up a cuppa from an elephant's trunk
With a couple of monks who utterly stunk
I've had bourbons with sultans and creams with queens
And I've bathed in Earl Grey--I'm really that keen!

And missionaries dismiss me for my single epiphany
The diff between him and me is a simple sip of British tea!
So when times are hard and life is rough,
You can stick the kettle on and find me a cup

Now, when I say "Earl Grey," you say "Yes, please!"
Earl Grey! (Yes, please!)
Earl Grey! (Yes, please!)

When I say "Assam," you say "Lovely!"
Assam! (Lovely!)
Assam! (Lovely!)

When I say "Ooh," you say "Aah!"
Ooh! (Aah!)
Ooh! (Aah!)
Ooh! (Aah!)

[spoken:] Ooh, yes, I'll do a number on you.

I've been around the world in eighty brews, to see the place it takes me to
To make a brew that tastes like the cream cakes made by angels do
I'm not the same as you, get shaky but aim
To swig amazing fluids but don't make it the same

Now, using fine leaves picked by pretty maidens,
In a bag knitted by a seamstress who lives in Copenhagen
Brewed up in a pot made of semi-precious metal,
Let the blessed contents settle in my very special kettle!

Now, when I say "Oo," you say "long!"
Oo! (long!)
Oo! (long!)

When I say "Herbal," you say "No, thanks!"
Herbal? (No, thanks!)
Herbal? (No, thanks!)

[spoken:] Hm, no. No, I want--I want milk in it. Strong, though--I want to see that spoon stand up!

If you're tired of tea then you're tired of life
Hah! I'm madder than a hatter and it fires my mic
Liken to me to Earl Grey, Assam, or Ginger
Lapsang Souchong, raise my pinkie finger!

Keep your sodding coffee in a proper copper coffee pot
And spot me lobbing teapots at your poncy rotten coffee shop
Coffee clots, nodding off--lost the plot, sodding off
Need some caffeine, tannin, and a Battenberg to top it off!

Cut from off a different cloth, a different lot can take their beer
On 80 cups a day, I haven't slept for 80 years!
You could say I'm mad for tea--or, or just say I'm mad--
Oh, you can't stay any longer? Oh, actually, I'm, I'm quite glad--

All the more Battenberg for me--

I can barely pour, my hands have gone a bit shaky from caffeine--

I love it though, I'd sell me own grandma for a cup...

Well, I'd sell YOUR grandma for a cup...

  1. woohoo fellow rock chick with leaning towards Metal! I'm looking forward to this rule (well I would, I made it up!)... my fave band is Iron Maiden... and yes I was thinking of an Ironing Maiden... since I never Iron I thought I'd prob go get my mum to iron something for the pose!! Haha at Cradle of Filth... there was so many things you could have done for that... all probably a bit gross though lol!!

    Anyway after that little waffle, I've never heard of your fave song so I will have to google it :)
