I’ve mentioned these before on either here or Twitter, but I still think they’re great.

I want this apartment.

Yet another amazing picture set from this lot.

I love these 1 minute movies.

This hurts my brain.

This makes me happy.

So, so wrong. But so amusing.

Projections, not CGI. Unbelievable.

Smashing Pumpkins go all NIN on us.

Yes it’s an advert, but it’s mesmerising. If they want viewers to stop skipping ad breaks on their V+ box (ro Sky+, if you’re that way inclined), make adverts as good as this.

I really like this idea.

Just plain cool.

Part of me can’t help thinking that they should have arrested the men, but not freed the women.

Awesome, creepy, obsessive.

This was apparently released by NASA, who are now my favourite space agency for sure.

A little bit of me is sad as this may well be the most interesting thing that ever happens to this man. Stil, great pub story.

Want to watch Hulu from the UK? Here’s how. This is probably legally dubious, so use it at your own risk.

One of the single best Parkour/Freerunning videos I’ve ever seen. The movement is incredible, the video’s well made, the soundtrack’s great, I could rave about this for ages.

A few links that distracted me in my day of doing nothing.

Ladies, if you think fitting three women in a cubical is complicated, just think what we have to go through. (thanks to @SeveralBillionM)

SO. MUCH. FUN! Where can I buy the small one?

It’s like Joseph Jackson’s wet dream.

This just caught my eye.

If I ever get to use any of these in coversation, I would be so happy. (thanks to @Alyssa_Milano)

Belated bonus bank holiday braindump 31/08/09

Posted by garethwatkins on September 1, 2009

I’ll admit it, I want that costume.

Now that’s the way to do it!

Nope, not a clue either. But I like it.

Smile for the camera.

Seriously, prisoners are inventive.

I’m assuming he passed with flying colours.

Another dancing Transformer. It still makes me happy.

It’s like a Tarantinorgasm.

I just want to have them on the coffee table to tempt bravado from guests.

This is a little bit of genius.

Kind of glad I didn’t read this before I took that return flight to Canada.

Gross, but you just can’t help but want to see it.

You need to know this stuff. You’ll thank me later.

Hi. Let me introduce you to the creepiest thing ever.

Practical. And helps locals spot the tourists and know who to avoid.

This seems like an astonishingly bad idea.

Actually, I would have dated this person.

This really shouldn’t be as funny as it is.

How much more effort would you put in to make your voice heard at work if you thought there was quantifiable financial reward?

No worries honey, I’ll get the parcel from the “post office.”

Worth keeping an eye on in case one of those choice rubber plant shots you snapped in Venezuela suddenly become needed.

It’s wrong that I want most of these hoodies, isn’t it?

I’m definitely getting old. More and more board games are starting to appeal to me.

Travis Pastrana’s life makes me jealous every time I see him on TV.

These not only appeal to my creeping board-game desires, but also to a slightly worrying need to touch them.

Turns out he’s more than a one man music machine.

Augmented reality is coming. It’s one of the first future technology hype stories I’ve believed in a long time.

Ignoring the woefully poor understanding of parkour (from an agency that has covered it numerous times), this man is pretty impressive.

Stop motion at it’s best.

Very smart viral marketing.

They really should be employing inmates time for more productive inventions. Some of them are geniuses.

If I hadn’t watched this, the accident that is inevitable next time I visit a pub wouldn’t happen.


God is very quick these days.

It’s nice that they realise it too. And I mean the proverbial “they,” not Asians specifically.

Want one. Now!

This shouldn’t work anywhere near as well as it does.

I have no idea why or what, it just is.

Want one.

Can’t help thinking there are other areas of life that need things like these.

For the take aways that accompany movie night.

It may be in French, but it’s pretty self explanatory.

For those that missed this, I wish I’d been there.

Sell your photos online.

Actually looks promising.

I read about this a few years ago and it still excites me today. Can’t wait to go and see it.

Get your ideas made.

Well that’s my child’s bedroom sorted. Will have to sort the whole child thing out at some point too.

Yes, I don’t need one, but I want one.

Unbelievable. Nice finish too.

Secret travelling eaterie. Apparently the food is far more gourmet than the name suggests.

More secrecy…a Twitter game. By invite only at the moment, but we know that Keving Rose is playing it and loving it.

Microsoft’s Bing is luanched. Early reports suggest goodness.

Google plays one-up with Microsft and launches Wave.

Where’re your “shields” now, Kirk?

Awesome music video.

If this is filmed on a Red One, why such low quality on the website? (yeah, like I was concerned about the camera they filmed it on)


Seriously, why aren’t you out getting rejected by women who are way too hot for you?

Not just awesome, but highlighting my opinion that there can be “alternative” solutions to apparently unsolvable problems.

Friday afternoons at Google are a distinct benefit to all of us. Yes, this falls into the awesome catagory.

Nice idea, but I can’t help thinking the people this is designed for might just deserve it. Natural selection and all that.

I’m not sure why exactly I would ever need these, but I want some none the less. Just to scatter about the place, perhaps.

So that’s how they made it. I’m assuming you’ve seen the original. If not, check it out first.


Money for writing? Ingenius idea.
