Ok, this is pretty sad, but a year ago (or maybe it was a couple), I watched the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Don’t ask me why, I was bored. Yes that’s right, that’s the reason, I was bored. Anyway, I was watching with a glazed look on my face, when a changeover happened and in walked a group called the Top Secret Drum Corps. The fact that it said ‘top secret’ got me to wake up. The group comes from Basel Switzerland, and consists of 25 drummers and flag twirlers. You think drumming, there’s nothing special about that, but the drummers play at an incredible rate, 500 beats per second!Check out the below, I am in awe and take my hat off to these guys.  


Hand farting with Volleys – never fails to make me laugh

There are some TVCs playing in Australia at the moment for Dunlop Volleys and they to me are hilarious. I don’t know why, they appeal to my inner child, and make me giggle and laugh everytime I watch it. It also reminds me of useless talents. Everyone seems to have them, but you can’t really do anything about them. They won’t bring you critical acclaim, you can’t really make any money off it and generally it’s as the term suggests … useless. Well this is where Volleys comes in. A middle aged man, dressed pretty averagely displays incredible skill in playing Pachelbel’s Canon in D, The Can Can and the Mexican hat dance.

Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
