When Parents Text, Girl Talk and Housesitting

This week on Diff'rent Strokes...


Dave and Jade joins the collective eye roll and LOLZ of When Parents Text - a blog dedicated to the unintentionally funny trials and errors of parental SMSes. This has to be one of our favourites - too funny to share on radio because, well, you need to see it to get it. Radio is a faceless medium. Sad panda.


Jade checks out American mash up meister Girl Talk's latest offering All Day - a seamless 71-minute long album built on 373 overlapping layers of music samples. Yes, we know it's a few steps away from Jade's preferred strummy la la sonic persuasion but there's something incredibly danceable and clever about GT's mash up stylings that even our lady of indie rock can't help but be amazed.

Grab your free download of All Day here.


Dave talks about housesitting culture. Why pay rent when you can get around as a housesitter? Our DS duo weighs up the pros and cons of being a sitter and having one's house sat. PS - see above. The only person Jade and Dave will trust their homes with.
