Sam and Dean

Anzac Day, SPN, and the Numa Numa song

 
Warm wishes to anyone commemorating Anzac Day, a day of remembrance for those in Australia and New Zealand.  The only bits I know about the actual WWI events that this day initially remembered came from a song by Eric Bogle, And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda.   Sometimes it's played in the US around Memorial Day by radio shows featuring folk music.  You can watch Eric sing it in concert here.  It's been covered by lots of folks including the Pogues.

With the Easter holiday, I haven't been able comment about the last couple episodes of SPN.  I've liked them both. They've been a good mix of funny and advancing the plot.

With the Easter holiday, I had the Kid about the house a bit more.  We saw a Master and Commander video by [info]swiss_kun using the Numa Numa song.  The Kid has insisted upon repeated viewings and now I have this stuck in my head.  In a list of related videos, we found a fan vid for the same movie using the Discovery Channel's Boom De Yada ad song.  Between these two of lovely tunes, I will be looney by this evening, if not already.  In case you'd like to tread the same path....
