This is possibly pretty sexist, but is definitely very addictive. Pick which one is the 'hottie' from the 2 pictures displayed. I just can't stop clicking. You can also pick between guys and couples, as well as girls, which possibly makes this less sexist. Although it defaults to girls, and I just didn't find the other two options entertaining at all, which possibly hints more at the truth of the matter. Anyway, whatever, I'll research this a bit more and get back to you with my conclusions.
Internet killed the video star. Great retake on the Buggles
'Classic'. Obviously it's all a bit of joke, and the music is fairly cheesy, but it did make me think about those Internet days-gone-by : Mosaic
was a bit before my time, but for a while I was really into IRC
and would sit up chatting all night. Nothing beats the slightly surreal experience of meeting up with your chat room irl which I did once; people from all parts of the world meeting up in London just because they liked typing things to each other. Hmmm, maybe it's time to download mIRC
77 reasons, as well as Jar Jar Binks (#9), to hate Star Wars Episode 1.
. Japanese anime Bond
bounces his way through a new adventure meeting many recognisable faces along the way (Hello Kitty
!). Don't know what it means, don't know what the music is, but it is all a thing of goodness. Mental note - must learn Flash, go mad, and then make this kind of thing myself.
The latest in the BMW films
series: The Driver (Clive Owen) witnesses a deal between James Brown and The Devil. Excellent guest appearances, watch out at the end especially. Once again it's the turn of the new Z4 to represent BMW; never has advertising been so cool.
Visited Matt and Paul in Portsmouth last night, after having been to work all day Saturday (the system I've been working on for ages finally went live), for the latest of the ex-Intranet developers get togethers. Just a small one this time with drinks at Gunwharf
, followed by Tapas
. Looks like the major get together will be in January with a full reunion in Cheltenham with Ben playing host. Hopefully by then I've have my new camera so I can record the event.
Currently I'm not sure which camera to go for, although the Canon IXUS 330 is definitely my front runner so far. It's difficult to judge, because I want something quality, but not too over board, as 9 times out of ten I'll just want to post the pics on-line, so I don't really care about megapixels and all that nonsense.
During the day I was working in Fenchurch St and the London Underwritng Centre - I never really realised that the City was so quiet at the weekend, it was like the end of the world, or the trailer for that new film - 28 Days Later. How can somewhere normally so busy, be so quiet? The worst thing though was that I lost my train pass somewhere. That's going to be very inconvenient this week. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
Virtual tour of Bill Gates' new home. If I could spare the $97 million I might think about putting an offer in, but you know how it is, all my money is tied up in those savings accounts where you have to give a month's notice to withdraw your capital, *shame*
The official site for Unst bus shelter. It's hard not to sound sarcastic when talking about this site but I really love it. It reminds me of the 'my home page' days, but in a really good way. And I'll tell you for nothing if I ever get to Unst I am definitely making a pilgrimage to the bus shelter. The only thing that could make this site more perfect would be a web cam combined with a timetable posting.
BTW if you don't think waiting for buses is entertainment you've obviously never played Shenmue. If there are any more bus shelters out there with sites mail me the addy's :o)
The acute fatal dose of caffine is purported to be 4000mg, or roughly 40 cups of coffee. As much as I love coffee I personally can't spare the time for all the toilet breaks required to prove this, not to mention the fact that it sounds kind of dangerous, so it's just as well that someone, 'Benito von Bitter Ragazzo', has set out to test the theory on behalf of us all. Some would say of course that with a name like that he was born to the job.
What ever happened to….(number #3249 in a series)…General Zod. After featuring as supreme bad guy in the Superman film series you would have thought that General Zod would have slipped into some quiet lifestyle, like tending chickens in rural Hampshire
, but no he's plotting total world domination from his *neat* web site. How is Superman going to combat this new threat? For a start I suggest he takes legal action against DC Comics who appear to be cyber-sqatting on his domain name
, or alternatively go back in time by flying round the earth counter-clockwise to just before they bought the domain name so that he can get in first and avoid a messy legal suit. Mind you on the up side I think he would have a good case, I mean they've blatently stolen his name, although it would probably help if he had it copyrighted. I've recently taken the precaution of renewing my registration
just in case.
