Rickrolling...

I'd never heard of Rickrolling until I saw John Kovalic's latest Dork Tower strip the other day. Even then I didn't have a clue what it was so just put it down to the characters last comment referring to me ("I'm too young to be too old for the internet!") - especially as I'm now a year older than I was :p

Anyway, Sean just started talking about Rickrolling at work and Dave also knew what he was talking about.

I have now been informed, been shown Youtube footage or it and have managed to pull myself back into tune with todays internet youth it seems.

The internet continues to amaze me with all the little social phenomena that arise from it.

I'm sure the forefathers of science invention and science fiction would never have thought about the many uses it has these days and the fads it throws into fame for 15 minutes...

Reich rolling is a bit more amusing.

and then one day you'll wake up to find yourself wearing a bathrobe and yelling at kids to "get off my bloody lawn, guDaMIT!" ;-p

This just to let you know that we've moved and we don't have phone or internet at the new place yet, but it should be fixed by the end of the month (would you try to contact us…).

Cheers. I was wondering if the move had happened yet and was thinking of phoning you guys too :)

Have news to spread to you both :p

Anyway, I hope everything went smoothly and give my love to the lady and the kid. I also hope you had a good birthday (4th was it?) and drop me a mail with your new details when you know them.

Take care and hope to see you soon!

For just a moment I thought I was going to get a nice succinct explanation.

I saw Rick Astley last night in the Here and Now concert.

He referenced the rickrolling thing in a way that you would only get if you already knew about it. He was so self depreciating it was refreshing!

Closing comment was

"You guys are wonderful, you have made a middle aged man very happy. Thank you"

I was surprised at how good his voice is.
