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.

Braindump 02/04/09

It’s heavy. Real heavy. It’s a megadump. Be prepared to wipe. Hard.

Each one is the basis for movie. Or, at least, an episode of an average teen-angst drama.

Earth hour pics. From one of the best photojournalism blogs out there.

I can’t help myself, I want one.

Intelligent conversation between two people who know what they’re talking about. If only all TV could be like this.

Awesome.

Interesting concept bar.

Elton John really likes him some hip hop.

I don’t always agree with him, but my god that man can turn a phrase.

Can’t believe i haven’t posted more parkour stuff. Really nice video from some great practitioners.

Loving it musically. Gets a bit weird towards the end of the video though.

Winner. Irritatingly, already out of context.

Loser. Well, initially anyway. Might turn out alright in the long run.*

More free NIN music.

*What? You spotted that? I told you we all fall for them.

Braindump 20/03/09

First of all, thanks to those that have commented. It’s a weirder feeling than I was expecting. having been encased in my BB bubble for so many years, I’m almost ignorant of the fact that there are those out there who go in search of the things that interest or excite them. And as a result of discovering this I’m now hugely flattered that anyone would end up here.

It’s a big dump today (pffft, sorry, I promise to grow up one day) as I’ve been off discovering real world interaction. And by interaction I do actually mean beer. I discovered it is good, but may need further investigation. Anyway, with the sounds of Carter USM’s 1992 in my ears, onwards.


Couldn’t give one?
You can now.

How many times a day?

A bat with balls! I may never conjure a greater headline.

New iphone stuff video.

Went to the #gadgetshowmob today. (hit search for a refresh)

Amusing images found on the brilliant Google Street View.

Free NIN/Jane’s Addiction/Street Sweeper stuff.

OK, let’s riot!

I promise to at least try to get something other than a braindump up over the weekend. I’m thinking maybe it’s time to unleash a recipe.
