I wish I had the financial backing to even have ideas like this.

Listen to your elders.

This’ll make your head hurt.

What worries me is that this is real.

Google slipping through the back door to social networking.

See if you can work out the number of layers involved in this.

Well that’s breakfast sorted.

Fan fiction at it’s best.

This is genius.

I found a woman making a phonecall in a nightie.

This is almost enough to make me celebrate my next birthday.

A collection of the stuff that interested me this week. Being insanely busy and riotously popular has lead to a decline in posts of late. I shall try to discourage my friends from requesting face time so much in future.

On the upside though, I hope to have a Wolverine review up late on Monday night. The proper film that is, not the FX-less leaked viersion.

Best crazy straw ever! And a great company name to boot.

I love these guys’ work. Great marketing.

Will the uses for the iPhone ever end?

I want to see this. A bit NSFW



Want one.

Zombie poetry.

Remeber Zoids? Now imagine what they would be like in your nightmares.

Want one.

2 minutes of awesome. Watch it through once before stopping to watch the extra bits.

Easy animation. And an amusing url. Well, that’s me on side.

I’m slightly surprised the person who made this had the time to do so.

Because laughing at Sarkozy amuses me.

Watch it once, then explain the story to me.

A rare moment of clarity from the government?

Come again? Ooh, sorry. I can’t believe this is commonplace enough to legislate against.

Is open sourcing a car really a sound idea?

I’m slightly surprised these aren’t being utilised more adundently.

Creepy book, although there’s something about her odd hobby I rather like.

I’m not sure why they’re doing it, but I’m glad they did.

Want one.

Never mind workouts, just some nice mixes.

All that time wasted actually learning how to play.

I might not like the guy, but he is mighty impressive when he wants to be.

Yes, I realise it’s late. Consider it a mental form of constipation brought about by having to do the early-start/late-finish thing today.

Been doing the rounds for a few days now, but very good none the less.

The first of many, inevitable, bacon related posts. I have a small obsession with the stuff. You’ll get used to it.

They have to go with his name.

Go on, admit it. You wish you thought of it.

OK, I admit it, inside I’m still 6. This made me laugh.

As I’m going to be locked in boardrooms for the next couple of days (and trapped in Birmingham!), here’s a brief but hopefully satisfying braindump to keep you distracted from the lack of activity.

Just ordered me a pair of these. Lets hope they’ye not the type that leave unsitely bulges.

Much, much greater than the sum of it’s parts. Sometimes awesome isn’t born; it’s created. If this is the first braindump link you click on, you won’t be disappointed.

Clearly an ad, but fun to watch.

I’d also like to add that I’ll be sticking URLs in article updates from now on as I’ve discovered that Google Reader doesn’t actually show the webpage the RSS feed is coming from (unlike the far more beautiful Netvibes). Basically, if someone is actually going to go to the trouble and flattery of dropping me in their feeder, I’d like to actually provide them with something.

I would also like to point out that in the process of discovering the advantages and disadvantages of Google Reader today I discovered that there is such a thing as a “fetching error.” Which is actually the cutest name for a problem I have ever encountered.

Tom Morello’s new effort

Eminem’s double Relapse.

Full length Star Trek trailer.

Wolverine full length trailer.

Glad I’m not alone in my anger at this sort of thing.

Interesting experiment. Bit weird at first, but you get used to it quickly.

Stuff. Slowly.

Some things you just can’t explain.
