... a Very odd title for a blog post too eh?
I was in the shower or somewhere, and my mind was wandering - trying to think of what I could post for V for ABC Wednesday ... when I remembered this ...
... several years ago (not sure how many - probably less than about 15, but definitely more than 10) I made this Very weird work of ?art
Yes ... it IS called "Violent Jam" ... it was some weird idea I came up with - weirdness is not just a recent thing with me - LOL
It is a jam jar, with a fabric cover and a ribbon, just like when one buys jars of jam at markets/etc ... but I figured a black cover and red ribbon suited the Variety of jam better than pretty floral or checked fabric or whatever one usually sees on jars of jam. As for the contents - .22 bullet "shells" (spent casings from .22 bullets) and broken glass (probably from some car windscreen) and ... doesn't show up very well in the photo but there is also a bit of cord tied into a hangman's noose ... I think I did that because I was going to include a bit of barbed wire but I didn't have any at the time. I do now - oddly enough I just picked up a few feet of it from a junk pile that used to be a fence where I was walking the dog last night! - maybe I should cut a couple of short bits and add them to the jar?
I guess posting a photo of a jam jar full of insane Violence is kind of apt for today ... seeing I heard on the news that we have lost another 3 Aussie soldiers in a war on the other side of the world ... why can't people all just get along with each other and leave each other be? (I guess if I knew an answer to that - I would be rich ... and/or famous ... and I would probably be too busy travelling the world to actually get around to blogging about letters of the alphabet ...
Also - while I was uploading photos (to include the one here, I first had to TAKE it ... lol) DD came in and showed me this Very interesting Video on you tube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=az1592YE8Nk
... I usually don't put links like that on my blog because they tend to Vanish and leave my blog full of dead links ... but Video does start with a V, and hardly anyone reads it anyway so why should I worry?
It is actualy Very good, and Very interesting ... a group of people performing "Flight of the Bumblebee" using only their Voices!
and while there ... I found a link to this Very good a capella Version of Bohemian Rhapsody - yes - also done with only their Voices - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KXk-PZtV-Q&feature=related
You lot are probably glad I don't have my singing Voice on this blog ... if I ever sing within earshot of anyone else - I get told things like if I ever become a singer - make sure it is a sewing machine! (in other words - "don't give up your day job" )
anyway ... I really should be off being Very busy sewing or something ... and I probably should post this before the linky thing closes - seeing it is Very late ... Virtually almost time for the next letter (which I may or may not get time to post ... if not - feel free to count the several random W's in this post as my W one too - I know there are quite a few W words in here ... Which is probably not that Weird When one thinks about it ...)
btw ... I bet you are glad I didn't decide to post about Vermiculture or Veins (somewhere I have some nice gooey photos of things being disected in science classes - lots of Veins in those ... also some Viscera (guts and stuff), no doubt ... that is if I actually took photos of the fish when the did those ... )
V is also for Vegetables ... wonder what ones of those I can find in the fridge ... I have not had tea yet and I am getting Very hungry ;-)
