More actually funny jokes

Posted by Martin Poulter on 31 March 2006

From Richard Wiseman’s LaughLab, the funniest (non-dirty) jokes according to different national tastes. On this occasion, I definitely agree with the Americans.

Short films and music videos

Posted by Martin Poulter on 31 March 2006

We like short films here on DnC, whether they be film trailer mash-ups, humourous shorts, or plain surreal. So you’ll want to keep an eye on Shortsville (links to short films) and Videoville (links to music videos). Through the latter I found the new video for Jamie Lidell’s New Me, which provides a “Bloody Hell! WTF?” moment; the sort that makes hours of film-hunting worthwhile (11Meg Quicktime).

Pink Rubber Glove on Flickr – Photo Sharing!

Posted by Vince on 31 March 2006

Sometimes Flickr-ites get a tad too pretentious – mutually backpatting one another over your latest snapshot. And the more viewers and comments you get the higher the odds you have of ending up on Flickr’s front page. So a group of us are trying to get this rather mundane pic to no.1 so do your bit…

Pishdolls

Probably the perfect anti-dote to the Final Countdown video from Paul_S earlier, these performing dolls are an intriguing take on street performance and perhaps worth catching live next time you are in Edinburgh. Their Ace of Spades video is particularly good.

Drawball.com

Posted by Martin Poulter on 24 March 2006

This is a very distinctive “shared space”: a vast canvas (hundreds of times larger than a screen) onto which anyone on the internet can draw, with an MS Paint-style drawing tool. Each IP address gets a certain amount of ink per day. NB: click on “Disagree” rather than “Agree” and start painting by connecting the bottom two points of the pentagon puzzle to each other via all the other points. It’s a Flash interface, but very well worked out, with individual parts of the ball bookmarkable.

There have been many, many users from different countries, as shown by the many flags, and there is a history of internet groups ganging up to create or mutilate art. My favourite aspect is the Hall of Fame, where you can see the most artistic contributions as speeded-up movies, building up brush-stroke by brush-stroke. Found via MetaFilter.

Sidewalk Drawings

Posted by Paul Smith on 21 March 2006

I don’t know if these images are real, or faked somehow, but nonetheless, I think they’re spectacularly cool!

My favourite link on the Iraq War

Posted by Martin Poulter on 16 March 2006

I’ll work this into InfoBomb somehow, but for those who derive humour from irony, this is a summary of US right-wing pundits’ predictions about the war. It’s nice to know that someone is holding these people to account.

The Colbert Report

Posted by Paul Ayres on 13 March 2006

Stephen Colbert was once a reporter on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, but he has now graduated to his own show on Comedy Central called The Colbert Report. Sadly it hasn’t been snapped up by More 4 over here, which means you have to tune in via the RSS feed and sample the delights on his analysis of Monopoly and other such gems.
