Posting a video here in order to configure AMP for WordPress to work correctly with YouTube Embeds.

If you haven’t put AMP on your WordPress website yet, its certainly worth a look. Making your site load fast on mobile is important. 

What about the open web? Well, my mobile pages load in under 1 second globally, served pretty much directly by Google. I understand the small chunk which is “paid” in return for this. Its a fair trade.

Video: Mark Ronson, The Business Intl. – The Bike Song

Below is a video from YouTube that you can play right now, and enjoy this track, including on your mobile webs (visit https://robinjescott.com/mark-ronson-the-bike-song/amp/ for the AMP mobile version of this post to see what it looks like).

“The Bike Song” Lyrics:

I run around town
Around around and round
The pedal to the metal
The pedal to whatever

Shooting round the streaky bends
I hear a conversation in my head
Thinking of a place to be
Ising a little melody instead
I won’t argue with myself
Today my legs are getting some help

My mother tells me I should stop
Go and get a real job
That can’t be the way that I roll
Everybody’s growing up
Having kids and paying rent
They’re all getting cars of their own

Gonna ride my bike until I get home

What’s That Picture at the Top?

As ever, in Ronson videos, there’s a hipster arty bit at the start… nobody is quite sure if they enjoy this part of the video, but it at least has some style, even if it’s something of a pastiche.

Below, is a copy of what I screenshotted, in case you want to look at this picture some more.

You may leave a comment below, but please note, despite featuring a YouTube video, this is not YouTube. You can’t just spout some nonsense. It won’t get published. You have to say something at least half way original or sensible. I’ve been waiting for a sensible comment since 2006… blow my mind.
