A Short Film About Cheese Cutting at all, but now I'm American I understand the deep and meaningful subtle and ironic humor of it all, innit? Your task for the comments for today? Write an essay discussing various differences between the UK and the US that Graeme might be experiencing. In your answer cite at least once example of a "British-ism" and an "American-ism" from the paragraph above to show that Graeme is clearly half way between the two (here's a useful reference for Brits who don't understand the film). You have 30mins for your answer. No peeking at anyone else's paper. You may turn your paper over... now [via op-pop].
Moonvertising web site goes some way to explaining a very confusing conversation I had with Jen the other day about a billboard she had seen, and I totally didn't understand, but it still leaves so many questions... #1: Are you really going to do this? #2 Why won't my comment appear!? [via op-pop].
Musical Friday time so I'm posting this little tune that Nick S The Hamster has put together for Lazylaces. And if I understand the Newgrounds licensing correctly this can now be used in any games posted there, which means writing about games on Lazylaces, has inspired a tune, that could be used in a game, that could be written about on Lazylaces, which is just the kind of "coming full circle" thing which is very pleasing [subbed by Nick S The Hamster, kaylou & Cyberjar88].
Rob writes to me to tell me that's he's animated me as a pear (you can animate yourself or a friend too) as part of ActionAid's campaign regarding naughty UK supermarkets squeezing the supply chain to push down prices. Of course I live in the USA now where that kind of thing doesn't happen at all [subbed by Rob Mosley].
Musical Friday, my latest download this week, and evidence that I'm slowly acclimatizing to the US (the band originated in my "home state", Maryland), is "That Was A Crazy Game Of Poker" by O.A.R.
Musical Friday, it's the Red Hot Chilli Pipers. Yes, you heard me correctly, I did say Pipers... [via op-pop].
Become An M&M is a silly flash toy, in which you can build your own M&M alter-ego (use the "character creator link"). Silly, but fun, that is. I'm particularly proud of the way I've captured my green skin in mine... [subbed by Cyberjar88].
Google celebrates the 50th birthday of Lego with one of those funky little custom logos :) It's a shame you don't see it when you're using one of the funky new themes though (I know they're not really new, but loads of new ones have been added just recently).
A while back one Musical Friday I featured the excellent acoustic sounds of Cillian Foster and he's written back to me to let me know that his band, GDC, are taking part in a band competition with the top prize being a record deal. So if you'd like to support a fellow lazylacer you can head on over to Bodog and vote for GDC (note: registration required) now... and maybe, just maybe, help GDC get that record deal. As a reminder I've posted my favourite track "Jazz" (above) and another song "Off My Chest" (below).
Neon Bible for Musical Friday, or should it be posted under point'n'click games? I just don't know. This flash "thing" is an interactive music video for Arcade Fire and is nice for tinkering around with, as well as having a listen to. Enjoy [subbed by randomguy & Minxxo].
Google, it seems like it's been much longer, and of course you're so mature, but I guess you're still just a young little whipper-snapper really. If you give us some advanced warning of your 10th next year we'll make sure we've baked you a cake...
