I never thought I'd find Paulo DiCanio as terrifying as this, but the Umbro England shirt advert that has him cutting up a full English brekky while staring at you, really freaks me out.

Good Clean Illogical Fun

Have a go on this amazing (or amazingly creepy) trek yourself site and turn yourself into a Vulcan(or Kirk/Uhura/Eric Bana)!

The result of my attempt lies below. I've had trouble embedding it, so I've posted a jpg. still version (that looks crap) witha link to the much cooler moving speaking version below...

Educational Fun

Awesome website to help raise awareness of male cancer for the charity Everyman, by drawing penis' online. Have a go, but beware the ink runs out. I was half way through colouring in a penis drawing and it ran out, leaving my masterpiece unfinished. It also started to make me feel ill after a while. You'll know why when you see the thing in the top left hand corner...

WARNING (It's more than a bit rude to those easily offended, so if that's the close don't click the link. I won't be held responsible)

Thanks to Rosie for finding this.

Henson's 11

Great mash-up of Oceans 11 and the Muppets...

David Wilson

This is a stunning new video created by my friend David Wilson for the song "We Got Time" by Moray McLaren. Very clever stuff.

Oh, and click here for a great behind the scenes look at how it was made.


A great video by Three Legged Legs for "Gifted" which features Kanye West, Santigold, & Lykke Li. It's a song off an album made by N.A.S.A. (It actually is, it's not a joke)

Newswipe Should Not End

Watching this weeks Charlie Brooker's Newswipe, I again realised that the show is the most important and informative show the BBC is currently airing. It consistently rounds up the weeks most important news, cutting through the crap and giving us proper expert views. This show should be permanently on air, with a far more prominent slot then 10:30 on a Wednesday on BBC Four. Surely it could at find a home on BBC2, nearer 9?

Anyway I recommend you watch it next Wednesday or iPLayer it now.(Oh and it's repeated at 11:20 on a Sunday Night)

There's only two left, so soon I'll have to go back to believing what the evening news tells me...

More Lonely Planet...

Hmm... is the joke wearing a bit thin? Not sure if anything's gonna beat Jizz in My Pants, but this is pretty good. I like it more than the boat one anyway.


A very odd animation set to the ramblings of someone who's on LSD. I could say more but it would only spoil the fun.

I still like that "United States of Whatever" song to. Is that bad? Too late anyway, I bought the CD years ago...

I'm the "T" in "I.T" Sucker!

Mr T knows his Virtualization. I've watched this corporate film(?) five times now and I still don't understand what he's talking about... or how he ended up agreeing to do it. Still, I suppose it's healthier than a Snickers bar.

Also we get to find out the kind of job Hey Arnold/Stewie will do when they grow up. Bonus.

Remember: "Intelligence in the network is for suckers"

"Tastes like chicken"

Bush's Doggy Christmas

Okay this is quite old, so I hope I'm not the only one who completely missed this. Personally, I'm still having trouble readjusting my world view to believe that this actually does exist and I'm not just going barmy.

Anyway here's a clip of a film about George Bush's dogs, Barney and Miss. Beazley, at Christmas, featuring the former US President himself along with a cameo from our very own former PM Blair.

If this idea has already grabbed you, you might as well go straight for the whole film by clicking here.

New LSM Website

As most of you know, I work at a animation and new media company called LSM and we've recently launched our new website, which I designed along with my workmate Matt Keen. The website also has our new showreel. Please have a look and let me know what you think :-) (even the bad feedback...)


Batman on an Elephant

I've not had a great day, but at least this put a smile on my face.

Dancing with the Star Wars

Thanks to Jamie for sending me this. Personally I'm impressed by the mobility of the Chewbacca dancer, so they'd get my vote.

Mmm Bacon

Now everything can taste like bacon with Bacon Salt, the bacon flavour seasoning. It's even vegetarian :-) I can't wait to get mine.
