Japanese binocular football

Posted by glittrgirl on 12 February 2010

You may have seen this before, but if you suffer from February Blues it’s bound to lift your spirit. I think it should be a new olympic sport, along with baguette jousting, persistent queuing and tiddlywinks.

Emails from an asshole

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 February 2010

John Lindsay has interesting ideas on how to conceal weaponry. Thanks Ryan for the link. Should I be ashamed that I laughed at Racist Microwave Buyer?

Beardyman – Dolbyman

Posted by Martin Poulter on 12 February 2010

Beardyman’s colossal talent for mouth-based music and comedy results in yet another awesome video, this time with the help of Dolby Laboratories.  Spot the tributes to Bootsy Collins, David Byrne and others…

Edit: the video was taken off Vimeo when this was first posted, but as of July 2010 has been put on Beardyman’s YouTube channel.

Slap it with meat for best results

Gloves interfering with the iPhone’s touch-screen? Use a snack sausage stylus, like they do in South Korea. (Thanks Ryan for the link).

Curb Stomp for Jesus

Posted by Tom Gidden on 10 February 2010

“23. And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth little children out of the city, and mocked him, and said unto him, Go up, thou bald head; go up, thou bald head. 24. And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the LORD. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them.” — 2 Kings 2:23-24, KJV

A cracking piece of editing bringing together some cinematic hits of the Noughties.

How all of us have become Richard Nixon

Posted by Paul Ayres on 10 February 2010

Adam Curtis asserts that we are all paranoid weirdos in a film for Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe.

I love the way Curtis pulls together disparate threads and presents them using fast cut archive footage like this, even when his thesis is rather shaky in places.

Luckily I was told that I was paranoid weirdo by some very kind girls when I was teenager, so I have known about my nascent Nixondom for some 20 years 😉

Darth Bristol

Posted by Martin Poulter on 9 February 2010

Probably not new to a lot of you, but today was the first time I’ve heard Star Wars with Darth Vader’s lines voiced by the Bristol actor David Prowse, before he was overdubbed by James Earl Jones. Come to the dark side, moi luvver?!

Office camouflage

Posted by Martin Poulter on 8 February 2010

…for when you just aren’t keen for visitors. In this case, it’s actually a Russian insurance company that doesn’t want to pay out.

Demon sheep hates California!

Posted by Tom Gidden on 5 February 2010

This gem from the redoubtable Carly Fiorina, ex-cheerleader for Sarah Palin, and the woman that wrecked Hewlett-Packard.

Now she’s trying to take Democrat incumbent Barbara Boxer’s seat in the US Senate. First, she has to take down her fellow Republican, Tom Campbell.

…with demon sheep.

If you get bored of the nasty voiceover, it starts getting particularly strange at about 2:20.

I pity the poor intern.
