Baby, this is so money!

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

For anyone who has seen ‘Swingers’ and ‘Sling Blade’, the YouTube video, ‘Swing Blade’ will be so money. Those that haven’t will just scratch their heads. It’s a one-joke deal but me? I spluttered tea and toast hooting over this breakfast-time find.

Sweet Revenge

Saturday, December 23rd, 2006

You couldn’t make this up.  Like the villain in a spaghetti Western, a sweet shop boss in the Lake District has been run out of a Cumbrian town after making disparaging remarks about the town on his My Space blog.

Nail Parlour Games

Monday, December 11th, 2006

In the course of my job, I recently had cause to visit a nail parlour. I only mention this because Dave blogged a similar establishment in the UK on funkypancake. As I have related in a comment on Dave’s site, I was co-ordinating an investigation of the unexplained increase in water usage. The engineers and I checked the exterior connection and then headed inside the building. We discovered that the nail parlour was staffed by a number of very pretty Chinese ladies in velour jogging suits and slippers, which seemed strange attire for nail technicians, as I believe they are called. Further discrete inquiries revealed that nails were not the only things getting buffed by the ladies, if you get my drift. And people told me the water industry would be boring.

As a former bit part actor, I have the utmost sympathy for those for whom an on-the-job mistake mean public humiliation, albeit temporary. However, I’ll not deny that I enjoy the guilty delights that Schadenfreude offers. Russell Davies recently pointed out an excellent post on the blog of Alex Ross, the music critic of the New York Times. It highlights a great page full of trumpet fluffs, the Infamous Portsmouth Symphonia and an organist playing Handel’s Messiah who just has to be heard to be believed. Enjoy, guiltily or otherwise.

Geo. Washington saluting the bravery of Sean Bonner

An American acquaintance of mine, Sean Bonner, appears to be taking a great deal for taking a brave stand. Sean, a media commentator and art wrangler of no small regard, has been trying to bring the long-raging ‘The Long Horse Debate‘ and subsequent concerns around equine provenance to the attention of the wider public. Castigated by some, dismissed by others, there can be no doubt as to the robust nature of his constitution and the strength of his conviction. I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Your own personal thermostat

In The Dilbert Blog: Human Behavior, Scott Adams relates a nice story about thermostats, told to him by a Dilbert fan, that tells us much we need to know about the human state.
