it's enough to give an old girl the vapours

By now I'm sure you have all seen this Grammy poster featuring our lad, Thom, with the titles of songs that most influenced him inscribed into his furry little face. This image of course, was brazenly swiped from our friend, Sean at Everything is Pop.

But did you also know that, hot on the trail of his sex appeal being used to pimp the Grammys, Thom is now
extending the love to the ladies? The Grannies, that is. Strictly platonically, I am sure. (Although look how very pleased Granny looks!)

I can't imagine that the Rapefish would make any of this up, can you?

Also, in that corner of the blogosphere, Green Plastic Radiohead have found a clip of Phil Selway's performance at Seven Worlds Collide (Oxfam support) recently. We all know that Phil is an terrific drummer, but his singer-songwriter-guitarist skills come as a pleasant surprise. It's a lovely song, too! Rock on, Phil!




I now predict a downward spiral for your beloved Thom culminating in a bladder control commercial.

The hands wrapped around the lady is the clincher. Too funny.

So your boy Thom is a silver fox chaser huh. Well good for him.

Granny does look quite pleased with her situation there.

Good thinking, Urban. I'm calling my broker to get me some shares in Depends. They are going to take off.

Amazing how those 40 year old hands look twice that age, isn't it, Al? Must be all that guitar playing. Perhaps piano.

Good for all the vintage ladies of the world too, Dr M.

Granny is one very successful cougar, Justrun.

I had not seen that pic before, but now I must check out the songs...very curious. (It reminds me of an art project that Linds did using lyrics from Matt's songs...she formed them into a guitar/mic/amp. Good stuff)

I wish Thom would branch out into the middle age, crazy unemployed women market...I'm sure he could do something for me.

Honk! Honk!
Maybe Thom's the new Viagra for women of a certain age.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Linds' art project sounds amazing, Deb! I would love to see it. It sounds like the sort of thing that you could lose yourself in for hours.
I am certain that Thom is good for what ails ya!

Seems to work for me, Gifted! 10 years difference doesn't make me a cougar, does it?

I don't know, you shouldn't think it's a sex thing that is, just the other day I walked in on Thom hugging my grandma as such . It turns out he was singing about investing in a good Roth IRA to the melody of No Suprises.

Actually, it seemed quite sensible.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

And Thom is the very picture of sensibility and good financial investment, JustA. He chose a good song to be talking about life insurance with your gran.

I am always amazed at how long he can hold his breath! Those big lungs explain that note-holding ability.
