finally catch on to the cult of Strong Bad
but redeem themselevs nicely with a full interview - including audio - with the brother Chaps and Marzipan
Apologies for the lack of posts but real life has been just too hectic and the weather too nice to be stuck indoors with a computer maintaining a blog. My meme
plan is still in the pipeline but I need a whole clear day to go through with it and I haven't had that luxury since I formulated my cunning plan. By way of an apology I'll reveal a deep dark personal secret instead - I'm secretly in love with news-reader Fiona Bruce
and I now have a disturbing fondness for watching the news. That's all for now though I'm afraid as I'm tired and need some rest :o)
The top 10 Strong Bad e-mails you will never see...my favourite being: "I shared a night of passion with Trogdor. Can you explain this burninating feeling I am having down there?". On second thoughts I'm not so certain we'll never see all of these.
I've had an idea for a (the first of many?
) lazylaces meme
. The plan is to implement my idea either tomorrow or Friday and to report on it sometime over the weekend. Hopefully it won't go the way of all my other best laid plans
. I'm also hoping it's an original idea but since I've come up with it independently that'll do for me. Watch this space
I was trying to resist but I just had to see "which Monty Python character
" (well Holy Grail to be more accurate) I was. Thanks quizilla
Two Trogdor links for the price of one today - Strong Bad would be so proud. Anyway this one's a short in time but large in file size (7Mb-ish) film of Buffy Vrs. Trogdor
Side Note: It's been my policy not to hot-link any media files without a link to the host site at the very least for a while now but there's nothing to link to with this clip. If there's any problem getting to this clip mail me (the address is at the bottom of the page) and I'll happily mail you my downloaded copy.
Following on from the recreation of Trogdor in Post-It notes
the other day here is Trogdor on a post-it note
. Obviously Mathieu Sylvain is one of Strong Bad's pseudonyms.
This sounds like it might be related to Tomb Raider but it's not all - well maybe a long lost cousin twice removed - but that's about as close as it gets. I was fairly determined not to enjoy it once I got that far but some funky music and addictive simple gameplay later and I was hooked and here it is
After my first real day out in the sun yesterday (thanks to Jules' garden and some freakish English weather) my back went a rather fetching shade of pink but I realise now that I should have only bothered tanning my front so as to accentuate my abs. If only lightly toasted Strong Bad's advice had come one day earlier.
The latest album from Norweigan pop godesses Ephemera
( see lazylaces passim
) is finally out to buy at cdbaby
a little mailing-list bird tells me. I've got no money until pay day (actually less than no money thanks to the power of my overdraft) so an actual purchase will have to wait but fortunately the lovely cdbaby - who have the friendliest customer service ever - have some tracks on-line
Hmmm...a viral short film from Budweiser called "The Best Man
"? The script almost writes itself in your head but it's fun none the less - especially for cheering up a Monday - despite feeling like a cheap Four Weddings
copy in places.
The techie nerdo gadget freak-head inside me (it's hidden deep down) has found THE replacement for my current mobile phone. The Nokia 6600
is a happy combination of the words Polyphonic, GPRS, Bluetooth, integrated digital camera, 65,000 color display, 6MB of internal memory, MMC memory card slot, RealOne Player built-in and all with 10 days of standby and 4 hours of talk time. Gadget heaven. Looks good too. I just need to find some money from somewhere now [found via gizmodo
