Google Street Scuba

Posted by Martin Poulter on 11 March 2010

These two Norwegians carried out probably the best prank yet captured on Google Street View. It involved waiting on a road for an hour in heavy scuba gear, but the payoff is national and international fame as “those anonymous  guys doing Street Scuba”.

High Renaissance Man

Posted by Martin Poulter on 11 March 2010

Thanks Gavin for recommending this half-hour film which skewers Bristol student life with what I suspect is painful accuracy.

Hacked in Real Life

Posted by Martin Poulter on 11 March 2010

Another blog from the Cheezburger network, Hacked IRL has photos of street art and culture jamming, from old “classics” to the hi-tech or slightly rude and the just baffling. I think this sticker is the winner, though.

Jon LaJoie’s birthday song

Posted by Martin Poulter on 11 March 2010

Jon LaJoie explains to a five-year-old girl where she came from (Lyrics probably NSFW). This came out back in October and I missed it at the time, but the song is another classic.

Galactica: Sabotage Comparison

Posted by Paul Ayres on 11 March 2010

Some cunning YouTuber has tried to emulate the Beastie Boys Sabotage video using footage from Battlestar Galactica.

… having dabbled in a little amateur editing myself, I have every admiration for hours this must have taken to do – though I’m sure it would have taken even longer to do it using the proper Battlestar Galactica 😉

A toilet unveiling to show your grandchildren

Posted by Martin Poulter on 8 March 2010

In case it’s not clear, the following video features people who have been drinking quite a lot. Last week, Libby and Damian held a party to unveil their new FancyBog: a toilet-as-art-object created by Chris Chalkley of PRSC. The ribbon-cutting ceremony, in which Chris ordained the newly-installed toilet, has been uploaded as a Flickr video. It features me in the background attempting Also Sprack Zarathustra on electric guitar (and cocking up the middle bit).

An obvious premise, but very well executed indeed.

Legend of The Guardians trailer

Posted by rootdev on 5 March 2010

Shameless self publicity alert:

Our new trailer is online, and in the cinemas before Alice in Wonderland

We had a last minute name change from the original title of Guardians of Ga’hoole this week as the studio decided the original title might be too difficult for some people! Hmm…

Posted by Martin Poulter on 5 March 2010

The Wicker Man screenplay, painstakingly transferred into comic form and starring your favourite Muppet characters. Fluffy yet chilling! Thanks Gavin for the link.

ChatRoulette LOLZ

Posted by Martin Poulter on 5 March 2010

Some content very unsafe for work: see what people are using video chat site ChatRoulette for without having to visit the appalling underbelly of the internet for yourself. There’s some genuine creativity here, as well as disgusting things that sap your faith in humanity.

For a cleaner look at ChatRoulette, Gawker has video of the brilliant Daily Show spoof.
