Not that remarkable, maybe, but look at the guy’s face – he’s absolutely terrified.
Which is realistic, I suppose.
Sweetcorn embedded in minced pork. Surely it can’t only be me that thinks this looks like a poo in a bap?
If you can read Chinese you’ll get the pun, though to be honest that doesn’t really make it any better.
My career as a Pop World Cup manager (the link should explain what this is) was cut short this week as I failed to claw my way out of the infamous Group of Death. In hindsight I should’ve realised further ramping up was needed in the final round, but I wanted to save my higher-potential tracks for later on. No room for hubris in the GoD.
Anyway, it’s been an interesting couple of months listening to Portuguese music from the last four years, and rather than just forget about the tracks I’ve found, I’ve made a mix to share them. Admittedly winning the thing was probably never going to happen, but there’s still plenty of good stuff to take away. See if you can guess which track I had planned for the final, in the unlikely event that I reached it.
Here’s the link to the mix – Portugal in the Pop World Cup 2014
And here’s what you can find on there:
Moullinex – Sunflare
Buraka Som Sistema – Hangover (Bababa)
Orelha Negra – We’re Superfly

Mazgani – Distant Gardens
Fast Eddie Nelson – Dry Water
Samuel Úria – Forasteiro

…meanwhile, the PWC continues over at Freakytrigger.
