Playing with Vespers

So I was sat happily at my PC and suddenly I felt a drop on water on my hand. I thought that was a bit strange (I'm very quick like that) and looked upwards to where a large baloon shape had formed in the ceiling. Needless to say we scrabbled to move the electronics and then investigated and the flat roof above me has a Large Leak. As a consequence, the usual slick computer setup is being heavily disrupted and might be for some time. We'll work around it, but it's very irksome to go from it all being efficient to total chaos.

I did find time though to have a play with some ideas for the current forum competition on the ADAPS forum. The current subject is "a line from your favourite song" - as opposed to the title. Now I don't really have one favourite song, so I decided to go for a concept instead. The basic setup comprises three images - a picture of Finn kneeling to say his prayers, a picture of some sheet music and a picture of a 78rpm shellac record. These are all related to the song "Vespers", which is popularly known as "Christopher Robin is Saying His Prayers".

So we have Finn playing Christopher Robin:

We have the music of Vespers:

And we have Turner Layton's record:

With a bit of fiddling about in Photoshop, we then have the final version: "Hush, hush, whisper who dares, Christopher Robin is saying his prayers..."

Of course this record gave the real Christopher Robin Milne a terrible time as he was at boarding school...we can only imagine what the other boys had to say about it. Or we can read his autobiography "THe Enchanted Places" and get the story first hand.

So that's what I've been up to today, and the next job is to make a new computer station temporarily in the dining room, not forgetting finding a roofer as well.
