All right! I'm doing a rebuild of the Fun Things Dot Com website.
When I started the site, it was all about funny email and how you could make your own, easily. Now, many people don't even use email! There are lots of fun things on this site still - jokes, cartoons, funny stories, etc. Please check them out.
A lot of the people that visit here these days however, are looking for my old rock and roll singalong page so they can sing with me and my 12-string guitar and look at videos of the rock and roll songs which include old photos from my life. (And, of course, if they're friends or relatives, might include them!)
And that started me thinking!
That's always dangerous, of course, but what I realized was that if you weren't a relative or an old friend of mine, then the pictures weren't that interesting and therefore, neither was the video. (C'mon, admit it! If you or your friends appeared in my singalong videos, then you'd find them more appealing.) So guess what I'm going to do?
For those of you who like the idea of the videos, I'm going to give you the chance to send me 2 or 3 photos that I can then add to my present picture collection and if I use them in one of my singalong videos, then you or your friends could have starring roles! (Well, that might be a stretch, but at least, you might find them more interesting.)
So, if that excites you, go to my Singalong page and send off some old photos.
I pick old rock and roll or country songs usually and because I provide the lyrics, I try and flash up a picture for each line of the song. It's difficult, but I try and make each picture "relate" to the line. So for example, if I was doing Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog", I might pick my friend's dog Emma for the first line - "You ain't nothin' but a hound dog".
That's her in the picture and obviously she's not a hound dog, but she is a dog, so she gets the gig!
So, if my warped mind can make a connection between your photo and the line in the song I'm doing, then it may appear in one of my songs. It's that simple.

I've amassed hundreds of jokes over the years so, if you've got time to kill, go to Fun Jokes and browse through the different categories and check out any that interest you. I add to them every once in a while but a "new" joke is hard to find these days, as old ones seem to keep coming around and around, so I don't do that as actively as I used to.
Or, some of these areas (below) might interest you?
If you're into comics or funny pictures or posters or videos, then the above page is where you want to start. Click it.

Any thing that I couldn't fit into the categories above, I put on this page. (Things like, "Who Am I?".) Have a look.
Sign up and get notified every time I add fun things or release a new singalong song onto my site. I don't know how my sense of humor and yours mesh, but try it for a while and see. If we "click", then you'll get some free smiles without having to search for them.
If we don't "mesh", then just opt out and I'll be out of your life.
All I need is your first name and an email address (below).
