It’s hair raising having hairstyles of dictators hitting the headlines.

Attention; I'm having a bad hair day.

Attention; I’m having a bad hair day.

The bottom line for this plucking eye brow haircut is that Kim Yong-un is still a dictator. His abuse of Brylcreem proves it.

Arrest that crowd, someone laughed.

In this photo he must have run out before he left for work. Normally, with Brylcreem ‘a little dab’ll do ya’, but this number will need a jar at a time. He does seem to have a pretty big head.

It also seems, in the land of the free, that his flat top (or e-shock) is to be the ‘recommended’ style of choice for certain sections of the male community. Perhaps a ‘little me’ or two with supreme hair styling.

Just like Romeo and Juliet – The Reflections.

Warning; the action in this video may be too much. I’ve decided I can listen often but only Watch it occasionally. It sends me into a frenzy.

I think the video is from American Bandstand and is a Spotlight Dance segment.

The song’s okay, the ‘new steps’ are incredible, possibly dangerous; the mosh pit of the 60’s. It’s great to check the girls and guys and host.

That’s it; I’m off to take photos in a cemetery, two hours drive from here. On return I’ll battle the ants which are invading my home.

Word for today;       Clean cut – the guys in the video.

Spock; live long and prosper.

Leonard Nimoy  – March 26, 1931 – February 27, 2015.

Mr Spock - image blaster.comI used to give my kids the Vulcan salute when they were little and going to sleep. Saying ‘Live long and prosper’ meant little to them, only that their dad might be a little weird. Still, every now and then they give it a whirl themselves.

Left handed Vulcan greeting   -  image frugal-cafe.comI find the salute easier with my left hand; what about you? I like it’s origins and the wry humour of Mr Nimoy on it’s universal use given the salute’s origin. As the image shows, a left hand effort should be okay for those whose fingers on the right hand won’t oblige.

In this short clip, Spock talks of friendship and the needs of the many. I think he actually returns at a later time due to some mysterious Vulcan stuff.

I’ve included a link to a tribute on Leonard Nimoy. I usually don’t like to read about the real person behind a character. Often, they aren’t as I would have them and this tends to intrude when watching them on the screen.

As for Leonard Nimoy, his life seems the opposite to his character. That is probably logical. Some of his artistic pursuits included poetry, photography and music. Apparently his pop singing was judged pretty crook by his friends.

Words for today;  Leonard Nimoy – lived long and prospered. Mr Spock lives on.

The swinging voterFrom my stuffed political armchair, a few gems for me to ponder.

Today, the first day back in Parliament school, will start with a leadership vote. Not the best kick-off for Tony Abbott and the mature, sensible Liberal Government we were promised only 17 months back.

It’s kind of like a little election really, but for Liberals only.

He made a ‘Captains’ call’ to dub Prince Philip, Sir (backfired). He made another ‘Captains call’ to bring forward (by a day) the leadership vote which will determine if he’s in, out or on probation.

I think he’s still trying to take the intiative. An unplanned day with some angst and insecurity, how will the day end?

My points of ponder;

– Tony Abbott P.M. states often that he shouldn’t be turfed because that’s what Labour did to Kevin Rudd. Is that a sound reason for keeping him in the job?

– Are his colleagues, cabinet and backbenchers worried about the direction Abbott has been taking Australia, or worried about losing their jobs?

Word for today;      Karma – or is it Ying and Yang?
