The accidental photo-journalist, part 3

The University of Lincoln's student newspaper has borrowed another of my photos. This one's a football fan from the last time England was knocked out the World Cup.

The Commodores rewrite 'Nightshift' as Michael Jackson tribute

The Commodores have rewritten the re-written the lyrics to 'Nightshift' and have re-recorded it as a tribute to Michael Jackson.

Michael, he was a friend of mine
For more than forty years, no brighter star did shine
Michael, they call you, “King Of Pop”
But for your gentle soul, the pain would never stop…
Tomorrow, Friday 25th June, is the anniversary of Michael's untimely death. Nightshift is a good song, although I'm not sure about the concept of rewriting a tribute song as a tribute to someone else. I wasn't sure 13 years ago, either.

Another unwanted gift

I've just received more unwanted gifts from the Red Cross, which has reminded me to opt out from their 'unwanted gift' mailing list. A sheet of adhesive labels and a paper clip, since you ask.
