    I thought Cliff was gay?

    @ Flabyo

    Obviously the Marquis de Carabas doesn't wish to risk being clearly photographed going about his business in London Below.

    Cliff himself doesn't seem particularly litigious about this, unless he's had the googleweb wiped clean... a search for 'Cliff Richard sues' only turns up references to Sue Barker. But the phrase 'lightning-lobbing litigators in the sky' kind of implies that he can now order drone strikes, so I won't say what I think of 'The Young Ones' in a public forum.

    The truth. I've seen three 3D movies and that's enough for me.

    Why 3D movies need to die

    @Vornaskotti
    I'm inclined to agree...but did anyone see Herzog's "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" in 3-D?

    Pop History #34.

    Cobra Command was a fully animated video game released by Data East in 1984. Gameplay was somewhat difficult - all right, it was extremely, outrageously difficult - as targets could only be destroyed at very specific points in the video, and the physics were kind of weird because although the player was meant to be flying a full size combat helicopter, the player's perspective frequently passed through tiny gaps or came within inches of walls and other solid objects. The animation, however, was lush and detailed, with a vivid palette. It was like participating in a classic Saturday morning cartoon, chasing bad guys through cities, deserts and jungles.

    The following clip runs through the entire game, including introduction and end credits. The game is slightly glitchy, with pesky orange splotches remaining onscreen after enemies are destroyed, but it's worth at least one viewing just to see the varied scrolling landscapes and the richly animated explosions.

    Enjoy.

    The city in which I reside is due for some major storms today. The media is preparing us for this via ridiculously ocker accents, cutting edge interviews with someone at a netball court and misapplied adages about fruit falling from trees.

    Severe Storm to Lash City

    (Assuming of course that the video is visible outside of Australia)

    Single pipe coaster in Mieders, Austria and this lunatic tries it without using the handbrake. It really does look like a lot of fun though.

    Wheeeee!

    Here's a video of what it looks like when you're not on it.
