OK, I'm very late for Diwali
, but what can I say? I've been kind of busy and it took me over a week to come down from the sugar rush induced by stuffing myself with Indian sweets. I can't pretend I grasp anything beyond the basic concept of Diwali
, but that's still pretty good going for a white English guy, and I do know the sweets are fantastic, this e-card
has a very cool firework lighting thing and gets huge bonus points for the most eclectic choice of languages I've seen (English, Hindi and Tamil, among others), and most importantly I wish all my Indian friends, and friends with Indian roots, well at this festive time. Happy Diwali.
Bizarre techno tunes remixed by a reindeer and an evil cat
on digital turntables and Apple Macs with psychedelic background animations. Quite possibly this on drugs, or maybe I am, I certainly felt like I should be after watching through this a couple of times. The really worrying thing is when you realise that it's catchy and it's lodged itself in your head. Well if I'm going to go slightly mad for the whole of Tuesday so can you. Enjoy. Wibble.
At some point soon I'm planning to add an RSS feed for the site (great idea Ryan) so this guide
on how get ASP to produce an RSS feed should come in handy. Syndicate lazylaces soon.
Neat little, flash animated, mouse chasing, spider
. Neat that is unless you don't like spiders in which case I wouldn't recommend it and you'll be reaching for the flash animated glass and bit of paper, preferably with a flash animated partner to escort it off the premises for you. Or if you have no Buddist leanings, a flash animated slipper *squish* [neat work by onemotion
After a week off the Friday musical interlude returns with one of my favourite bands of the moment, snow patrol
. These guys are on heavy
rotation on the lazylaces music systems. I'm not totally sure how well known they are outside outside the UK, but the music sampler at the top of their site for the new album is a great way to acquaint yourself witheir addictive sounds.
Ok, this quiz
will make no
sense at all if you're from outside the UK, it's debatable if it makes any sense at all, but I enjoyed myself. Turns out I'm a confirmed Southern Fairy:
"Alwight, guvnor? For you are a Southern Fairy. Thank God you didn't turn out to be one of those northern gits, eh? Too many of them around for anyone's liking. And, don't even get us started on the Scots. Celebrate down your local bar with a cool pint of lager. That costs £3.00."
I'm so proud. Where do they find lager that cheap though?
Final musical post for this Friday; chill out a little with the Kings Of Convenience
. Oh dear...another
album for me to buy.
I travelled the world and the seven seas...sweet dreams
flash animated through a half hour dance intro, the full song and even after the music stops. Rave
a little bit on Friday you crazy cats. Big box, little box...etc.
Let's Rock! What lazylaces knows about rock music could quite happily be written on the back of a particularly small postage stamp (remember them?), but this is musical Friday and this flash animation
has spaceships and stuff as well as rock
so how could I resist? The music is quite possibly by slipknot
, but I'm clueless so don't rely on it.
Visual Aside: I'm trying to do that rock hand symbol thing where you curl up your fingers and stick your little finger and thumb out...in rock terms I am pathetic.
One for the master
....musical flash madness for a Friday.
