Shades Of A Blue Orphanage

Shades Of A Blue Orphanage
Well here I sit listening to Thin Lizzy, ‘Shades Of A Blue Orphanage’ no less.  Yes I have a copy on CD digitally re-mastered and all sorts of bonus tracks that disturb me. So the question you are asking did I sell my Soul and whats the story with Eddie Prevost? And shame on you who are wondering what I am talking about, do you know nothing ? Did you not read THE FUNKY NOMAD provisos, its what it all about. Now click the link and catch up will you, goodness gracious me unbelievable. ( Yes I know I asked you to subscribe and thanks) So now we are on the same page did I sell my soul, well I don’t think so but it had me a bit worried, had I accidentally made a deal at the crossroads. Does making an offer on the interweb constitute a contract with unknown arcane powers? Probably not, or maybe yes, its hard to tell at this point. In truth I found out a while ago 2010 that this had been re-released, I bought a copy a few months back but have not admitted to it for various reasons. Will the journey now be over for riseanddeardemise.ca has the purchase of Shades killed the whole premise? And of course what of Eddie Prevost. Nothing is straight forward in the world of the Funky Nomad, if it was what would I have to blog about, what would keep me up at night. Question, why didn’t I just go buy it when it came out if it was so important to me, walk over to HMV place an order and just buy it. To be honest it seemed a bit like cheating. In theory I could take the whole list of missing albums pay the price and there they would be. But its not the same, I went to the record store the first time round, both new and second hand (Impulse in this case, that’s where I found Shades. (Of course I did not buy it new, it came out in 1972.) So for those of you sinners asking who the hell is Thin Lizzy? I feel truly sorry. I can say this. Thin Lizzy played their last gig 28th August 1983 at Redding Festival (Well at least for me) Phil Lynott died...

Go Beaver & Big Ribs.

Go Beaver & Big Ribs.
So what do you do when you turn off Facebook ? Well it looks like you keep tuning it back on, by accident as my Flicker account signs in via Facebook oh yes that’s the feed in the bottom right corner of this blog in case you missed it. So if you want an explanation I build 40K models sort of accidentally  # 1 Son wanted to get into it so I had parts left over and as usual got carried away 5 years later still building stuff. If you don’t know much about this affliction I build Space Marines and all the stuff here is heavily converted or concept stuff. So now you know. Oh and its also on the Games Workshop Group feed too I am the “FunkyNomad” surprise hey and yes I know I can’t paint, but I can build glorious crazy shit and it keeps me out of trouble. So I hear you all begging to have a look at what I am currently building. ( Sure you did)  and while we are at it we can have a little look around the Funky Nomads subterranean lair ( Ignore the box Tsunami, I have a bit of a box fetish) I know you are all excited I will even throw in a hand made PAC MAN Halloween costume that took 5 days to build thanks to a how to on YouTube, #1 Son was a great hit got interviewed by the local radio station and has so many photos taken his buddy stopped talking to him.     Well hardly a Tsunami from this side but if you could just look the other way deffinatley more boxes.  Anyway back to you wanting to see what I have been up to model wise ( Its  a Forge Master Dreadnaught and it aint legal) the sooner we do this the better because I am going to post pics anyway, (Realistically you probably don’t need all the Nerdy details so I will resist you don’t care what this thing is armed with. You do! Surely not, didn’t think so.)   so now that’s done I can get on telling you all about Beavers and Big Ribs. So I asked myself once I did the deed (Facebook disconnect) did important stuff I put on Facebook disappear ? cos I...
