Me ears are alight

Heard the Desmond Dekker song “The Israelites” on the radio today, and I haven’t been able to get the Maxell advert out of my head all afternoon. That was a great advert. Had a guy standing there holding up boards with the words of the song written on them, while it played on the soundtrack:

Get up in the morning, baked beans for breakfast
Sold out to every monk and beefhead
Woah-ohhhh, me ears are alight!
Why find me kids, they buck up and a-leave me
Darling cheese head I was yards too greasy
Woah-ohhhh! Me ears are alight!

and then it said “Should have bought Maxell“, Maxell being an audio tape manufacturer. “Monk and beefhead“. Class.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
