Now You See Me, Now You... Umm, Still Do


This is why I want to live in Japan:

They come up with awesome / awesomely bad ideas like these...

So. A skirt which, with a quick twist, becomes a 'vending machine'.
Thus totally fooling any would-be muggers (duh, they can't find you!)

Step 1

Step 2.

Oh That's What's Up

Boys who ride BMXes are like sooo sexie

If I dated a boy who rode a BMX I'd feel like the coolest girl in the world.

Epic Fail

Which bright spark thought it would be a good idea to put up this

in this particular spot?

Not a particularly sensitive media buy... But funny nonetheless

Well If This Doesn't Cheer You Up....

Possibly the happiest chaps in the world.... If I was going to share a cab I would want it to be with these guys - I bloody love a sing-a-long!

Most. Fun. Ever

Oh, Now I Get It....

I never got Bon Iver until now.

I was sent this & it's beaut.

Bon Iver & Bowerbirds cover Sarah Siskind's "Lovin's for Fools" at the Bowery Ballroom, New York, on July 29, 2008

It's about a woman telling her husband to be with his mistress.
Emotional stuff.

Oh God this is awful.
An abortion of a song.

Kanye West - 'Love Lockdown'

I mean I kind of see where he was going with it, the concept in fairness, is cool...
Only 1) 'Ye can't sing 2) Autotune is Waaay played out (thanks T-Pain) & 3) It's just really shit

I hope KanYe doesn't come & unleash his "Give a black man a chance" rant on me for this post...

President Palin...?


Matt Damon's started talking sense?
Since when did that ever happen?

In this video he actually raises some really important points... It pretty much struck terror into my heart whilst managing to make me LOL at the same time. Impressive.

My Hero!

Dr Brian Cox.

I'll say it again, Dr Brian Cox.


He is my hero for many many reasons, however this quote from him today made me resurrect my MASSIVE crush on him:

"anyone who thinks the LHC will cause the end of the world is a twat"

So. The Large Hadron Collider experiment. Something of an anti-climax, no...?

Personally I think its one of the most, perhaps not exciting, but certainly intriguing things my generation will play a part in. It has the potential to revolutionise the way we view view the world - or rather, the universe. Clearly not too many people are quite as interested in it as I am, but I've always been a massive science geek & find shit like this fascinating...

Anyway, the world hasn't imploded. Yet... But this is one project I'll be keeping an eye on.

Not least because one of the scientists involved in the programme is the dishy Dr Brian Cox, what a hottie! Ha! He's so beaut & sweet & smart. I am hopelessly in love with him


Ever wanted to get things of your chest?

Run to the top of a mountain and scream down at everybody below?

Well now you can (sort of) & it's all thanks to an art project by some company called 'Unsworn'.
"The Telemegaphone automatically answers incoming phone calls and broadcasts them across a fjord in idyllic Western Norway down to the remote town of Dale. The project addresses Blah Blah Blah Innovative, provocative and exciting, the Telemegaphone is just plain old fun. Enjoy."

Well who hasn't wished for something a little like this after a hard day's slog at the office...?

Right. I'm off to make that call....

Here it is in all it's, ummm, glory >
