Amy McDonald “Mr Rock & Roll”

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

I had already posted “This is the Life” by Amy McDonald on this blog and here is “Mr Rock & Roll” from her debut album.

Amy McDonald is a Scottish singer and songwriter. You will her her strong but loverly Scottish accent in the second video of this article.

She started playing on-stage acoustic gigs at the age of 15 ! Her main influences include Travis (find them on YouTube, they’re Scottish too and they are great !) and The Libertines. In fact, she is a self taught musician (which means she learnt to play music all by herself !) and started to play her father’s guitar after being inspired by Travis at the T in the Park Festival in 2000, where she heard Travis’ song “Turn” (great song by the way !) and wanted to play it herself.

And now, a short interview of Amy with her charming Scottish accent 😉

HIMYM –> How I Met Your Mother

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Ok, I have to admit that I’m slightly addicted to this at the moment. It’s called “How I met you mother” and here is a short presentation :

And here is a very short presentation of Seasons 1 and 2. Ok, I know, the commentary is really fast, but it should give you an idea of wht this is about. It reminds me of Friends. If you enjoyed Friends, I’m sure you’ll love HIMYM aka “How I met your mother”. Enjoy !

When John McCain was 31

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

You may know that John McCain is the oldest candidate to run for the presidency. He’s 72 ! He is also a Vietnam War Veteran.  In October 1967, while on a bombing mission over Hanoi, he was shot down, badly injured, and captured by North Vietnamese soldiers. He was a POW (Prisoner of War) until 1973 (so for SIX years !)  , experiencing episodes of torture. His war wounds left him with lifelong physical limitations : that’s why you may have noticed that he has a slight limp (= il boite).

I suggest this video from an old News TV show called by Panorama.

Of course, Hollywood sonn turned his history into an action movie !
