One reason to march on the 26th

March 9, 2011

Tried to share this on Twitter a few times and managed to break their website. It’s a short but VERY revealing video about the motives of some of the people behind Andrew Lansley’s NHS ‘reforms’.  It’s also one of the things that convinced me to join in on the 26th.

No fooling!

Thanks to @Jackthorne for this


Don’t bogart that shit, dude!

I’m writing, which means mixtapes!

As ever, thanks to all on Twitter and for pointing these delights out to me. The chances of my running across a track from the New Moon soundtrack on my own were very, very low.

For those of you not on Twitter

January 9, 2010

I laughed myself sick last night at these videos but because you’re not on Twitter, you missed them, you big dummy! Get with the scene, man!

Kicking us off,  the awesome Greenport Peter Pan Fiasco. (1.17 is where I really lost it)

David Attenborough joins the Symphony of Science

The most literal news title sequence of all time.

RTE are all heart.

Listen out for the father in this one. He’s just as thrilled as the kid!

(An old one, but it rounded off the evening nicely).

Also, there was this picture

(Lots here from The Daily What, but thanks also to @Rigsy for the RTE clip)

You know what to do.


“All right, kids! Who wants to see some keys?!”

July 18, 2009


Sorry I’ve been neglecting WTD these last few weeks. I’ve been on holiday!

Sadly, The Old House of Keys is not an old house with keys in, but the Manx Parliament building, which isn’t as funny. I really, really wanted to see it, for the same reason I want to go here, but when I heard it might be slightly interesting, I lost interest.

Anyway! Where were we? What’s been happening? What’s all this about Michael Jackson cancelling his London dates?


Party time! ‘Why, That’s Delightful!’ is four years old today!

The Hompendium of Dorithies began as a whimsical distraction on Livejournal and aside from the facelift it received from WordPress and Mister Kupperman, it hasn’t really evolved in any meaningful way since then.

However, it has become dear to me, as much a part of my life as my television work (and a regular source of inspiration for that), and  if you guys didn’t visit, it would have farted uselessly to death years ago. So thank you, and Happy Birthday to you.

(Thanks to @jspmartin for the reminder!)

(Nearly forgot! Michael has a site too!!)


Where the cool kids hang

Very possibly the last komment korner.  Sorry guys, I know there’s a lot of affection for our weekly get-togethers, but it’s just a bit fiddly for me to keep it up. It may return at some point, but in the meantime, you know where to find me!

I’m the dog, the cat is Twitter, and we’re in LOVE! In fact, I’m thinking of dropping the Friday thread and letting Twitter handle the social side of things… what do you think?


Tell it to the hair!

January 9, 2009


I’m going to stop using the little speech bubble thing so I can use more pics like this one. But to be clear, this is my regular Friday open thread. Remember to be delightful, and maybe go easy on the questions until I get my breath back. Otherwise, knock thyselves out!
