Wear Sunscreen

Found this song on one of my old compilation tapes, Baz Lurhmann's "Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)", full of simple advice which is still as relevant and inspiring as when I first heard it...


  1. Wise words, too easily forgotten by catching trainsand paying direct debits. You think you're remembering them, only to find out you forgot, instead wasting days on trains and paying bills.

    The wise man forgot a couple of questions though:
    1) have you ever looked at the photo for angel delight on wikipedia?
    2) or paid 25 quid a week for a house with no heating,
    3) or possibly seen your accomplice be picked on by Sean Hughes (all night)...

    ....and yes, I'm still allergic to booze.

  2. That can't be you Rob can it surely??

  3. Would proof be telling a story about putting some jelly in a tub above the living-room door, so it would fall on the other house mate when he walked in...

  4. proof indeed sir! how the devil are you! it took me a google search to figure out what "dairn sarf" meant, im ashamed to admit! my ultimate test was going to be to get you to pronounce "doughnut".
    reckon putting my email address here is a bad idea? mind, not many people read my tatty blog...

  5. Check your hotmail (This is where you tell me you have no idea what I'm talking about). Strange thing about dairnsarf is that i thought I learnt it off, er, of you.

    Weird story behind turning up here...and it's a good thing you didn't chuck it in in December.

  6. Cheeky pup, I am hip to the groove with this 20th century malarky now! Check YOUR hotmail now!

  7. Thing is, I just tried to do that, then remembered that, hang-on-a-minute, I don't have a hotmail account, and so ironically it is now me that has no idea what you are talking about...

    on the upside, post #7.

    i'll find another way to tell you my email address...
