Whatcha Y'all Think?

About the new theme song here at me ole blog? Didcha notice I put up a nice little control bar so youse can mute it? Not that anyone would want to with a great song like this!

Now, I know for a fact this was around at least as early as 1880 --has something to do with slingshotting around a massive gravity well, don't ask-- but if anyone knows of it before then I'd be happy to hear about it.

BTW, does anyone know the song or who did this particular cover of it? Yes, I do know who so don't think you're a big ole smartypants if you do know!

Coming soon to a stupid blog near you: Dave gets a new tool (cus his old one was droopy), Dave gets very rich (hey, I really know a bloke named Rich), and Dave smokes some very weird stuff!

So stay tuned!

Meantime, I've got 2 loaves of bread in the oven, burgers to make (and cook since no one here likes raw burgers), spuds to peel (and cook as my extra special chips; again since no one here likes raw spuds), and bacon to fry --what would a burger be without bacon?

I want to win the smarty pants award, but I can't get the danged song to play! Help AlaskaDaveDownUnder, I am having a blonde day.

Jacki: It looks like you are using IE 7 on an XP machine, so it should play if you have the appropriate quicktime plugin.

Question #1: When you loaded the blog did you get a yellow alert bar saying you needed a plugin? If you did, just click it and your quicktime plugin will download and the song will start.

Question #2: Does the audio control bar appear on my left side column just above the koala? If it does, then you may need to unpause it (it should just start though). If it's not there, then you need the above plugin.

If that fails, then let me know and I'll link to it into a post for ya, no worries.

PS you and your hubby are gonna LOVE this song!

Yargh! Plugins, I can't get it to play. Must download more quicktime stuff.

To All: Ok, I'm going to put a link to the .wav version of the .mp3 over on my left sidebar. All you'll need to do is click on the text that'll say something like "Dave's New Theme Song" or something similar and the song'll start while the blog stays up.

Ok... Heeeeeeeeere goes!

Dude, my husband loves the song and your tips worked. We are wired for sound and now I think my man wants to go brew a vat of beer. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

Sciencebloke: Oh c'mon now, you know browsers just LIVE for plugins!

Alaska-womon: Thanks. Thanks a lot.
Hmmmmmm, do I detect a wee bit of sarcasm from your general direction?

In with my brother's house, having just had a double chocolate stout, a few Labatts, a bottle of Chimay, that one lambic framboise, and... uh... problably some stuff I'm forgetting. My finding that song right now is sooo appropriate! :p

KC: I just knew you'd like it! Drop me an email if you want an mp3 of it, no worries.
