Balls


I cannot stress how much I love this advert!
I hate adverts, I hate crappy heavy-handed sales patter every five fucking minutes on the telly... but then sometimes they get it right.

I could watch this all day

also where I normally would balk at any kind of product placement by myself personally (unless tried and believed in) I like this ad so much I have to mention that it is for Sony's Bravia telly... had I the money...

and I found that some guy has posted the day's shoot onto Flikr (which is where I store my photos for this site) I hope he doesn't mind me linking to his page: Sepiatone's photo-shoot shoot.

And the original link I had for this movie died quite quickly, I found it again thanks to these guys:

49Media.com bless 'em. Although since then there have been a plethora of sites spring up with interest in this advert.

I have also found out that the track used is a cover of Heartbeats by the Knife - a Swedish brother and sister duo, I came across in June with the video for pass this on... which I have to say grabbed me immediately and didn't let me go the first time I watched it... the young boy is beautiful (and his dancing ALWAYS makes me smile - and I'm watching this pretty obsessively right now so always is a strong but true interpretation of that which I am trying to convey)... and it's slightly weird... and musically one of the most interesting pieces put out by anybody in a long while... love, love and fucken love! Thankfully I have managed, kudos to these guys (unfortunately I don't speak Svensk) to track it down, for you guys...

If you can't decide which version you like best from the Bravia advert there is this mad fusion to listen to

big help from these guys:

Guavamaffiosa and Gorrilla vs. Bear which is a mightly impressive blog and source of info on lots of cool music... hell I just found two covers of Love will tear us apart (Joy Division) one on Guavamaffiosa by the guy who covered Heartbeats for the advert and then this version by Calexico ...

Best post... ever.

You're havin a laugh intchya?


I am obliged to post these short films for many reasons: firstly coz they are funny, secondly because one of them features gratuitous nakedity and thirdly because it's a kids in the hall sketch and I liked the kids in the hall...

Happy Hallowe'en


I love Hallowe'en, I love scary shit,
I love kitsch scary shit too lets face it if I didn't then I wouldn't like much about Hallowe'en...
Anyways on with the festivities; you can send a question to the 'Other side',

Or see questions other people have asked, you must check out Shirley Ghostman anyway you can... the guy who plays him is on his way to godhood in my book... not that that's any real endorsment for anybody.

And you may wonder where this is going but stick with it to the 5th round and all will become clear...

Ya gotta love the Evil Clown Generator

Or ya can carve a pumpkin which is a particular favourite of mine... shame non of my friends think so.

They're dead now.

And we must campaign hard to keep Hallowe'en pure of this evil.

Perfection


I could cite so many reasons for blogging these links the first has to be 70's nostalgia; two fellas (from the guys over at The Sky Lounge) has the genius (Dan Lane) reference to Battle of the Planets sadly without the kaching sound effect that was pioneered through the show and subsequently employed in various other sword/lens flare dazzle sound effects in the 70's/80's, although you do get the theme tune... result!

I have also on an unrelated note been reminded of some 70's films by the bouncy ball bravia commercial: firstly the silver balls that chased kids around a small (read low-budget) supermarket, and then on the back of that, the film of the wee boy who had a magic tiger t-shirt... until his mom washed the shirt and then he lost his magic powers... more than that I have nothing for you... maybe I'll get back to it... maybe I won't... who can say?

Except for this completely unrelated piece of amazing animation with heavy star wars references... and yet is utterly original and funny and beware the Chubbchubbs.

and

If you are the sort of person who will only watch ONE animation piece this year...

Make sure you don't watch two.

And now for something completly different...


A little bit of factual entertainment for you here, otherwise known as trivia...
this tree was not carved by beavers but I liked it and what the hell?
Anyways... I never knew beavers were ever native to Britain...
Other worthy headline news has to go to muppet idol...
whilst the last link could be potentially scary... we don't think so.

or hope so...

Bits n bobs


Well Freddie Prinz Jr 'Loves Bobby... anybodies bobby' and I wait for the day his train blows into my port... or did I just mix too many metaphors?
Anyways this is sometimes funny, sometimes politically engaging and often not... stick with it... possibly.

And this is something I came across ages ago and never had anywhere to put it so I'm putting it there...

while this is funny for all the wrong reasons...

Clean but ugly


There aint much I can do to make this thing look any better... even by totally surrounding it with an overly distractive background but I like the fact that this years' Tokyo car show has headed towards the green...

Even though this is Damn Uglee!

Whereas this could grow on me.

And here on a loosely related note we have the worlds' smallest car .

While on the science theme we have recently learned that alien abductions could be nothing more than a figment of an over-active imagination.

Along a similar bent I have this short film to show you, I say similar; I mean science mingling with fantasy understand it at your own rate...

And lastly again with the metacafe... it was the first place I saw this scientific demonstration and I wonder if this girl has been mixing her mentos...

Bear


Well that's the only name attributed to him that I know of so far, but he's kinda cute n funny sometimes... if nothing else it'll pass a couple of bored hours at work...

I came across him with a new toy I have just discovered called metacafe... more on that later.

anyways I'll post in order of funniest... fourth being least...

I love picnic

Vending machine

Golf

First contact

and you can find further adventures on the rg studios website

rg studios.

and where it says on the spot animation page that the files are not available they are... just click the picture for a short movie.

Some light relief


I think this is quite a cool site... only there are very limited choices you can make for instance the photo above is me... made up in photofit stylee and anyone who knows me, knows I am far better looking than that (it looks a little like Myra Hindley)... nice hair tho' and that is one of the added benfits of this site; if you can find a face that matches yours, you can try out new hairstyles... that's what I spent most of my time doing...
and it only comes in white... skin that is.

This is a cool little film and stuff like this is always useful for any wannabe animators out there all I need now is a camera and a script, and some models and some lighting and stuff and things...

Or of course I could learn flash again and make my own small movies but then I see stuff like this and I think I can't compete with genius... and I also think that geekbot and angrybot are a little too close for comfort...

How cool is this? I want the walls and ceiling done as well...

And finally a few more Family Guy clips...

Gotta love Stewie

More Stewie why the fuck is he English? coz it works...

Peter comforts a friend genius.

God bless America


and all who sail in her.

I do feel that the Americans get a particularly bad press but then... sometimes deservedly so

Even Asterix is having a dig but then like I said they bring it on themselves and they can be quite daft and petty.

And what is the deal with the religious zealots? What kind of idiot follows organised religion in the 21st century? Oh yeah Disney... but then if you remember my previous post Phillip Pullman is a sell-out cunt, so who's buying his hollow protestations as anything other than self-publicising... not me.

Does anyone else remember when Ben affleck was cool? I think it was Mallrats and then oblivion... what's he up to now? Right...

And can anyone tell me if Gwyneth Paltrow has ever been cool? Or has she always been a moaning bitch? Although in her defense the end of the article does say that she has now gotten used to living in sodden ol' Blighty (which I believe is an Indian term meaning foreign) but I wish she hadn't... fuck off home love, we don't need ya... or want ya.

But for political balance I am obliged to highlight the good in American society...

erm...

They do Hallowe'en really well... I love Hallowe'en.

It's a daft old worl' no doubt...


These links could only be provided under the same banner as they are almost all too totally ridiculous...

Talking shoes is only one of the titles put forward so far for the Imelda Marcos musical

Torchwood is the spin-off from the recent Dr. Who series and if I have one complaint (even as a gay man) is that it was far too sexual and more than that far too gay... so to make a series of the really gay character who was the captain guy is utterly absurd and hopefully unwatchable... cos god knows I'm not gonna watch it, but I would hate to think I had missed a good thing... doubt it's gonna happen tho' Russell wise up and write something decent you wasted old queen... even us gays aint THAT gay.

and breathe.

Oh more news that aint news come on guys... you fuckers are being paid to feed us this shit?

erm although without reactionary elements of society such as these fuckers: This is so on my wish-list I suppose you'd be happy watching endless repeats of animals do the wackiest things with the FANTASTIC sound effects ADDED ON!!!

well here's some Funny Cats.

Scary World


And I hate to be the bearer of bad news blogreaders but it is...
A very scary world indeed:

Contract made lets go back on it and have it verified in law... BITCH!

What did you call me??? Oh I see you were only shouting out the name on the side of my chair...

Also in todays madness prisoner sues God erm yeah... like good luck with that an all...

although who could have forseen this.

My final notes on this topic concern some mad Americans...

Is it any wonder the (thinking) world thinks Religious America is CRAZEE?

Or that the rest of them are any more Sane? thank god for stuntcook... >snigger<

shades of Orgazmo?

And finally on this particular post...

$1 million for the capture of a live Bigfoot (£563,347.42) which kinda reminds me of this film I saw when very young and it scared the shit outta me The Legend of Boggy Creek thanks for the link courtesy of Bad Movie Planet, but also I felt it worth mentioning this site has some very pertinent issues we should all take the time to deal with.

Thank you.

Science bits


OK this is your update as to what is going on in the world of science; in a very loose interpretation of the word...
Let's start with revisiting an old post

No more heros anymore...

Scotty to be beamed up

James Doohan rest in space god love 'im.

Whereas just to settle an arguement with a friend of mine who I know reads this site...

Hunter S Thompson was fired out of a cannon

but anyways...

it's always handy to have the formula for such things to hand

When you are trying to sound/seem impressive

and it never hurts to keep abreast of the current developments

When you need some conversation at a dinner party

Then there are always more serious things to consider even here on Earth

All I have to say on the matter is thank GOD somebody is taking things seriously.

Even though other 'scientists' just want to fuck around.

Run Piglet


It would appear that there is a neo-nazi fascistic movement sweeping through this land

Pig's ear

More idiocy

but this like totally takes the piss...

Poopydoo


I love the idea behind the Ig Nobel awards

Poop and the dog's bollocks

and this is a cool illusion

Disappearing fluff

and I think this

Spy Media

is a cool and long overdue service.

Smurf dude!


I had,a while ago come across some very strange articles relating to the Smurfs and their allegedly Marxist sensibilities

as you can imagine there is quite a proliferation of Smurf info out there in webland and most of it rather inane crap

Inner Smurf and I am boringly Brainy...

Smurf movie erm, yeah right...

Smurf name Fucking Ebola Smurf? WTF?

S.M.U.R.F

Commie bastards

Who could be Anti-Smurf?

and More

and this has only been put on this blog because:

U.N.I.C.E.F. bombed the Smurfs wonder if it's any indication of the forthcoming movie... let's hope so.

some bright spark has posted the footage here but it's more like a slide show than a stream.

Mad World?


Oh it is most definately a strange and wonderful world

Jesus cries

There's always work... for those that want it...

More employment opportunities with interactive exhibits?

All the seeming in Chimera WTF? although I did learn from this article the origins of the word Centaur and that was actually kinda cool, and hey if we're gonna be honest who hasn't woken up next to a fat hairy pig at least once in our drunken lives?

The funnies


Well I have posted news and it is Sunday so legally I am obliged to provide funnies...
Although you are not legally obliged to find them funny I'm hoping they will amuse you at least a little

Puberty Pals may be a little base/toilet humour but hey...

Family guy sketch has Chris falling into an A-ha video... worth a giggle

He-man does Four non Blondes however is supremely divinely stupid... I'm guessing a queen with too much time on his hands... but thank god if this is the end result...

Daredevil


I like the way that all of a sudden almost EVERYTHING seems to be able to be explained away by a single gene... baldness is the latest gayness was in for a while and I particularly like this one:

Daredevil genes


perfect excuse for any particularly outrageous behaviour one might care to undertake.

No examples come to mind tho'

Although It got good reviews.

the film that is.

Things you need to know


Here again in my postion as social defender I provide you with very important tid-bits I really feel you ought to know:

Nannying Fuckers

Jules Verne woulda peed

Air-force Kill Rudolph and pay Santa Comp very important story this.

Power really does corrupt only the innocents suffer.

More survival tips for the impending nuclear holocaust - you may laugh now...

Oh my GOD!!!


I fear for the world with this trend towards 'Intelligent Design' (intelligent is not a word stupid people should use).

America wake up to yourself

Leave God for the ill-educated

Or maybe that is exactly what you are doing...

like the socially elitist bastards the higher eschelons of most society produces... yours in particular... fuck the poor and sell them God... its worked for hundreds of years, hell if it aint broke don't fix it.

Read more than just your bible for once, ONCE why re-read a fucken book that many times anyway?

WORD of GOD?!?!?

FUCK OFF you tits it's an ancient political document that was added to and taken away from by (corrupt - but then aint they all) leaders throughout time to further their own social agendas (ooh sexed up documents... what does that remind me of) with very little relevance to the modern world at all...

God is BAD

it produces societies that believe Shit like this.

a small aside:

when looking for pictures to blog with this I found these...

Truly intelligent design.

Go figure.

UPDATE:

Could it be some of these people are capable of rational thought?

Leave it to the Scots...

Eclipse!


Well at least it would be if we were gonna get the full eclipse but apperently we aren't and I think it is taking place at some ridiculous time in the morning 8am? dunno never heard of it although I have been assured it exists.

I'll still be in ma pit

And while we're on it I'm intruged to see the results from this mission:

Venus Express

Brokeback Mountain


Ah Jakey Jakey Jakey...
Normally that would be enough of a post on it's own in my very honorable opinion...
But this is better...
How you say?

Jake goes Gay

and gets his kit off as well...

One to see at the cinema I think.

And it's always worth checking out the London indie film festival Raindance one of the films on I am definately checking out is Night watch... hope it matches it's hype.
