The world's largest collection of toothpaste. To be filed under 'I never knew I wanted to see that'.
Peripheral du jour - the USB Christmas snow globe mouse. Soon to appear in a geeky Christmas stocking near you [via gizmodo
Finally an easy way to not only find out which films and television shows feature bagpipes, but also which tunes are played. It's the internet resource we've all been waiting for [via zFilter
I've really liked the Gary Jules
version of Mad World ever since I first saw the Domo Darko
clip, and when I finally saw Donnie Darko
it did nothing but strengthen my enjoyment of the track. So I'm very happy to see it's made it to #1 in the UK Christmas chart
. Especially impressive as there are at least 3 locations, including the official site
, where you can listen to the track on-line without paying a penny.
After the useful Pollock-esque thingumy
I stumbled across
the other week - another one
for your artistic pleasure.
It not might like seem like the real spirit of Christmas, but being realistic the What A Crappy Present
site is going to be darn useful in a lot of households this week.
Whichever way you feel about the new M6 toll road
the fact that it has already assisted in the destruction of 2.5 million Mills & Boon
novels has got to be a good thing, hasn't it? The question is though, even with this added bonus, is the toll road value for money? Maybe I'll try it out on way up North this week to see for myself.
Japanese flash techno ascii animation madness. Turn the volume up high, grab your whistle and your glo-stick, and enjoy the madness.
If you've got the design abilities of a wombat, much like myself, and your looking for a colour scheme for your website, you can't go wrong with the ColorMatch remix
(pretty similar to this
a while back). At some point I hope to put some dynamic stylesheets on this site so it could come in handy, but I have to write the comments system first, between hangover and work commitments. Hopefully I'll be making a start on the comments this weekend unless drinks with my ex-colleague Grant get too out of hand on Friday [via op-pop
Adrian does some neat flash. Try them all especially "insectshop".
Thanks to everyone who took part in the comments vote - as a result I will be coding my own comments system. I'll keep you posted on my progress and hopefully I'll have something working reasonably soon. As a special thankyou everyone who voted will get to beta test when there is something to test - a special big thanks to Jann
for supplying some ASP code to get me started.
Having said all that I haven't made a start yet as my office party on Friday night was slightly more awsome than predicted. I need to confirm some of the details with my colleagues when I'm back at work tomorrow, but I can reveal that we ended up in the Roadhouse, at some point several hours later I was ejected from the aforesaid venue, and I didn't actually make it home until 8am on Saturday. I have spent the best part of the weekend asleep. A massive thanks to Jules though for dropping some essential supplies (Dairy Milk) around this evening.
Strong Bad, Homestar, Coach Z and the brothers Chaps in not one
, but two
radio interviews. Strong Bad's pretty grouchy in the mornings.
