    The noble dogs keep away even the potentates.

    @The Mighty Foamhead - Oldhat and I were discussing that video on my Facebook, and I was disappointed that you beat me to it, but at least I have this. :)

    @ Dextra: Bugger, I hate it when that happens, sorry. I have far too much free time. But I'm sure Eternally Beloved Overlord Si can adapt it into a urethral maggot insertion device; a Whitechapel Prestige Limited Edition, maybe.

    (Shit. Now I've got the image of him doing the seizure-inducing, hyper-manic infomerical for it stuck in my head.)

    @Vornaskotti

    that japanese guy is famous, he won the world yodeling championship in Austria a few years in a row a while back and infuriated all the right wing nationalists there. But he was so good (is that possible in yodeling?) they couldn't do anything about it.

    Funny seeing a japanese fellwo speaking in a back-woods hick austrian German dialect. Almost as funny as when Arnie speaks German.

    I had the very great pleasure to see Mark Grist perform at Secret Garden Party on Friday afternoon. I think his poetry speaks for itself.

    @magnusisasillyname
    I was at SGP too! I am still removing mud from my belongings.

    In November of 1966, two months after the first Star Trek series premièred in the U.S., science fiction author Isaac Asimov wrote an article for TV Guide in which he complained about the numerous scientific inaccuracies found in science fiction TV shows of the day — Star Trek included. That show's creator, Gene Roddenberry, didn't take kindly to the jab, and immediately wrote to Asimov with a polite but stern response that also went some way to explaining the difficulties of bringing such a show to the screen.

    Asimov apologised, and in fact became a good friend of Roddenberry's and an advisor to the show.... a fascinating exchange of theirs took place some months later, just as a problem arose relating to the relationship between Captain Kirk and Spock — a potentially damaging problem that Asimov helped to solve.

    Speaking of Grist...



    This kicked off a big debate on my mate's FB page about whether or not rap battles are a bunch of fucking macho bullshit. I tend to think that at its best, batlle rap is an art form rather than a disgrace, although bad battle rap is basically just two blokes slagging each others' mums... I don't really rate Scroobius Pip, so if the battle does happen, I hope Grist takes him apart.

    And then there's this. Don't remember seeing it posted before but anyway...
    Spider Jerusalem LEGO Cube Dude
    Spider Jerusalem rendered in the Cube Dude style.
    (Created by Warren Ellis & Darick Robertson
    from the DC/Vertigo series TRANSMETROPOLITAN)
    I think there's something troubling about seeing anything Warren Ellis had a hand in creating presented in a standard developed by a man from Disney/Pixar.
    But I just had to build him anyway.

    I grew up in Houston around Screw music, but I just recently got passed this documentary. It's pretty much the best thing ever.

    There was a Bob Ross program on cable TV years ago which I got seriously hooked on back when multichannels was still a novel concept over here.

    Can't remember a single tip he gave or the subject of any of his paintings but the combo of voice and that hair was mesmeric.

    (I've just finished making my fridge (semi) fit for human usage. Does that count?)

    Hey all,
    I admit to trolling around the trailers.apple.com site, but this "Iron Sky" movie looks pretty cool, eh? Anyone know anything about it? (*wink*)

    I think everyone was mesmerized by Bob Ross' voice & hair. Man was amazing. Loved the video.
