Odd sods


These links are related by no other means than I found them interesting, cool or just plain strange.

Firstly the BBC have unveiled the new Cybermen, although the legs look really odd and clunky to me...

Someone is turning Hunter S. Thompson's send off into a film, which will either be ubercool or quite, quite strange.

Strange but not inexplicable is the case of the green puppy... what is inexplicable is how I think I can just link those two stories together...

Having read the article, I thought the idea of a portfolio life was for me until I realised you needed at least one skill in order for people to pay you, unfortunately most people don't count high drug tolerance as a 'skill'.

Maybe I'll launch a toy-line...

The Cyborgs didnt scare me that much when I wert lad but a lot of my mates feared them tellibly especially Simon who could never pronounce his Rrrrr's. The thing is they should be concentrating on recreating the fears of a bygone generation and moving them into todays market, the fears I mean, not the generation because they are obviously already there ipodded up with playstation thumb and R2D2 telephones. These clunky and ungraceful bits of tinfoil dont really do it and so now I find myself unfrightened yet again!
The green puppy was infinitely more scary but rather sweet and Im not sure I believe it considering photoshop.

You are totally right about the fear thing... althought personally I was never frightened by Doctor Who when I was a kid, I just got really excited waiting for it to come on. These are too clunky-looking (and you can imagine how much the design studio was paid to come up with it) and blue peter cardboard production values aint gonna help...
And I realise you were slating me for owning said phone but I am taking out the compliment in your vile soup and thanking you for including me as a member of today's generation, where you are in the bygone category...
and the puppy is real it happens did you read the article?
Afterbirth, placenta or some bodily gubbins. S'tru.
