One film I'm really looking forward to is The Quiet American, which stars the excellent Michael Caine, and more importantly is from the Graham Greene book of the same name. If only they would make a film of 'Our Man In Havana' that would be superb.
Found this link to a trailer for 'Johnny English' which looks kind of good; a sort of Bond meets Clouseau, with Rowen, Blackadder, Atkinson starring. Hopefully it can live up to the promise, although Natalie Imbruglia is in it as well, which I can't decide will make it awful or excellent
Not that Windows crashes a lot or anything, but here are a whole heap of examples caught for prosperity. I'm actually seeing a lot less of these myself, shame really the Blue Screen Of Death is like an old friend, all those times it's given me a break in a hectic day, *sigh*. This site reminded me that the cash machine up the road regularly gets a DHCP error which makes it look like you can't get any cash out, but you actually can. You just need to figure out where all the options are behind the error pop up.
The whole Tablet PC thing has seemed like a whole heap of hype, and it's not really interested me before, but I liked what I saw here though. So many aplications spring to mind from seeing this simple idea at work.
One of my personal favourites for technical documentation is the O'Reilly range, and now you have the chance of extending the range yourself with the aide of the O'Reilly book cover generator. Witness the Lazylaces manual:
And you know I've produced one for about every product and project I've worked on.
Lalalalalalala… limma skinkbit coolgit. The quite frankly bizarre musical tale of a Hat's life. Possibly. As with all the best Flash animations this is surreal to an extreme, with very catchy music, and seemingly no point what so ever. I think it's Swedish, so perhaps it makes sense if you are Scandinavian? All those months of darkness etc.
Update: Thanks to Stefan for finding the Hatt Baby lyrics. We can all sing along now...
Oddly calming annimations to chill you out. Relax.
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 again.
77 reasons, as well as Jar Jar Binks (#9), to hate Star Wars Episode 1.
Super-insane Flash. 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.
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*
