My missus is heavily into the Korean soaps,I sneak a look occasionally....some lovely crumpet in them.

So is mine.

I sometimes have to get up at, say, 02:00 am for a pee and Sai is still watching them on her iPhone. 🙂

can 2021 be any worse ?

2021 is, at least unofficially, the year of the sea shanty...

Of all the things I thought might happen in 2021, spending the first two weeks weeping with joy over a song about the slaughter of a whale is not something I could ever have predicted.

But that’s exactly what I and thousands of others have been doing thanks to sea shanty TikTok.

It's the rare kind of viral moment that transcends its meme status and offers something more: a vital glimpse of hope.

The start of a phenomenon

In the final days of 2020, Scottish singer Nathan Evans posted a TikTok of himself singing the sea shanty Wellerman. It's a New Zealand folksong from the mid-19th century, about a Sydney whaling company called The Weller Bros, whose employees and ships were called 'Wellermen'.

The song features a supply ship bringing "sugar and tea and rum" to a whaling crew off the shore of New Zealand.
