Entertainment, USA!

November 5, 2009

I…I don’t know where to begin. God bless you, Glasgow Diamonds! God bless your fake rap, your silent saxaphone, the guy on the piano (THE GUY ON THE PIANO!), the cheerleaders waving their pom poms while they pass another industrial estate in the rain in cars hired from Mexander Autos. I love you all!

And don’t stand too close to that swimming pool! Ohhhhh! Too late!

(Thank you @AdamBeGood!)

p.s. no need to watch it past the video. It runs on, for some reason.


Nervous kid wants to know if it’s now

June 11, 2009

This must be one of those videos that everyone’s seen except me, right? Everyone’s seen this. It’s me and six other people who haven’t seen this. Well, anyway, if you’re one of those six, this kid has been asked to wish Roseanne Barr a happy birthday. That’s really all you need to know (Thanks to the Gyles Club!).


Don’t fear the baby preacher!

This baby’s satirical take on religion rivals the work of the late, great Bill Hicks. (via Videogum, again)


Goodnight, all.

The quality’s terrible, I wish I had a version without the on-screen clutter, and the arrival of the pinky ponk will probably bemuse anyone who doesn’t have kids, but what the hey…nothing can diminish the beauty of this title sequence.

This goes out as a special thank you to everyone who has signed the Express/Dunblane petition (8226 of you, at last count).

And thanks also to the BBC, for caring enough about our children to make this show.


Dolphins and bubbles, together at last.

A daymaker

February 21, 2009

As always, Videogum says it better than I ever could.

“Once in a while, a video of a kid singing a song to a webcam transcends its one-note brethren and just gets better and better for the entire 3:30. This is one of those times (the turns! The prop! The fake crying!) This is a daymaker.”

Indeed it is. They should make it the official video for the song.

Another treat from ‘Sexy People’

Some nice news

January 17, 2009


What a lovely story to start the weekend. Muntadhar al-Zeid, The Man Who Threw The Shoe is being treated like the hero he is by his guards. “…he was very happy when he heard that all the Iraqis support him. He even cried when he heard that there were demonstrations on his behalf even in the United States.”

I hope gets to see this. And this. And these.


What. The. Hell.

You may not believe your eyes, but I assure you, it is happening.  Link
