The Funk Soul Brother...

Quick post, because work has been particularly draining, depressing, exhausting, and soul sucking this week.

But, the Rottenator has decided that the Nooge has a new name.  Behold:  Fatboy Slim.

I am torn.  Because although I object to the potential self-esteem issues it may cause him by being called "Fatboy" I can't help but admire the fact that the Rottenator, lover of all things rap, has (albeit perhaps unknowingly) happened upon the moniker of one of my favorite Britpop/Techno dj's of all times...

Norman Cook.

I call him Britpop/Techno because, well, I'm probably out of times with current music of the day, but he was one of the members of my favorite bands, the Housemartins:

Don't think that I don't die a little bit inside to realize this was 27 years ago...oh...my...god...

Needless to say, I still love Paul Heaton, who went on to form the Beautiful South and also, Norman Cook, who became Fatboy Slim.

He also played at the London Olympics, which, yay, still relevant!


Anyway...the katten...he will always be Sir Nigel Wentworth Noogington, Esq. to me...despite what the Rottenator says....btw, every time I look at the Nooge, the first thought in my mind is "poe-faced".  Even though I've always heard that expression, I never completely knew what it meant.  But upon reading this definition:

British
: having an assumed solemn, serious, or earnest expression or manner : piously or hypocritically solemn 
 
I see that it totally fits.

In other news, we have another beach trip planned for this weekend, which I am beyond looking forward to. And maybe a side-trip to Charleston.  If you're not familiar with Charleston, SC, it's like Savannah GA, except without the nastiness.  And if you're not familiar with Savannah...don't worry, you don't need to be...

  3. I remember the Housemartins! My best friend at school used to get called "Stan" by everybody because he looked like Stan from the Housemartins :)

  4. So now I have "Funk Soul Brother" and "Fat Boy Slim is Fucking in Heaven" running through my head.

    I did not know of the expression poe-faced. Which makes me think of Poe.
