From Diana, Queen of Hearts

April 23rd, 2010 by Ian

From the Queen of Hearts

I’m a big fan of Twitter. Through it I have acquired design advice, job interviews and technical help. More importantly, it also allows me to follow the adventures of Princess Diana (aka the Queen of ‘Arrrrrts) as she enjoys her time in Heaven, amongst all the other celebrities. Just like when she was with us on earth, she is a constant source of inspiration. Her Twitter account is perfect if, like me, you have too much self respect to buy the Daily Express and read about her there. She also sent me this rather fetching badge. As it came through my door this morning i ran to the door, only to see a white Fiat Uno race away down my street. I shall wear it proudly, always.

Follow DianaInHeaven on Twitter. We miss you, Ma’am.

Parks and Recreation is the Wu-Tang of Comedy

January 13th, 2010 by Ian

If it was anyone else I’d hate this, but for some reason RZA makes a pretty damn convincing Leslie Knope. Yeah, RZA again in non-RZA-like surroundings.

Parks & Rec. is pretty good, by the way. Now it’s entered season 2 and has stopped feeling like a cheap the Office rip off. It’s characters have, what’cha call it? Character.

Tough To See Past All Of This Awesomeness

Feel free to delete as applicable. This is the best blog since Goths in hot weather. I’m sure it could happily be extended to ASDA. Maybe on a Saturday morning.

Meow mix is a cute decent into a hellish nightmare

You know that bit in Father Ted during ‘My Lovely Horse’ when Ted has the nightmare with the horse and the sax solo? Well, 0:45.

In Soviet Russia, Cat Caption You!

Aaaaah… Pig iron, your musk is that of glorious industry …

Aaaaah… Pig iron, your musk is that of glorious industry …

?olcats does exactly what one might expect. Soviet lolcat captioning.  I guess it figures, since the Chinese have the musings of Chairman Meow.

Quotation “marks”

It could just be an angry swan

Do you like to cowardly allude to things without actually saying them outright? Do you write for the Daily Mail? Are you confused by punctuation? All of the above?

If so, I’ve found the blog for you: The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks.

Super Mario Kart for reals

December 6th, 2008 by Ian

I’ve seen this Remi guy before, kicking footballs at Policemen and stealing their hats etc. Now he’s re-enacting Super Mario Kart. Watch him run away from the police. It can’t be too long before he finally gets a proper ass-kicking!

Let Me Google That For

November 19th, 2008 by Ian

Here is a site that will no doubt ensure my friends will talk to me even less than they do. Ah, clear concise patronising. Saves nobody time.

Economic downturn has unexpected upside

October 21st, 2008 by Ian

Sure; we’re all about to loose our jobs in this financial maelstrom but at least now we can see some of the guys responsible for this mess suffer a little bit as well. Thank you internet. Step forward Sadguysontradingfloors. A delightful little blog, I’m sure you’ll agree.



Good night sweet lolcats, your time in the sun has come and gone.

Improv Everywhere strike again – Human mirror

July 7th, 2008 by Ian

Improve Everywhere mirror

The agents from Improv Everywhere have pulled off another superb urban prank. This one involved getting identically-dressed twins to sit opposite each other in the subway car, creating a mirror-like effect.

I recommend spending a few minutes looking through the rest of their site. They’ve had some brilliant pranks (‘missions’) in the past. My personal favourite was the much smaller scale suicide jumper mission.

Garfield Minus Garfield

February 27th, 2008 by Ian

garfield without garfieldI never found Garfield that funny. But then we’re on the 59862145th strip now and it’s pretty hard to think of something new isn’t it? People have taken to photoshopping the cat out of the strip, and now they appear to be a look into the mind of a man on the edge, a wildly delusional schizophrenic. Much, much better.

The best can be found on the garfield minus garfield blog.

Monkey Tennis 2.0

February 21st, 2008 by Ian

alan-partridge.jpgIt’s only after you read the BBC Innovation Labs briefs that you start to get a bit bogged down by ‘Web 2.0-speak’. It has even started to creep into Private Eye magazine on an almost fortnightly basis now. We need help in these fast moving times. We need a man who knows the media. A man so pioneering, a man so brave and a man so in touch with what’s happening right now. We need this man to help us through all the buzz words. The man we need is Alan Partridge. My colleague at rckt wrote a few Partridge-esque ideas that might help the BBC in producing some new and exciting content for the web.

This is what the web needs.

Survival Of The Fittest

February 12th, 2008 by Ian

Surely now those pesky creationists will no longer struggle with the concept of evolution after they read this craigslist post.

I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world.…”

Super (Duper?) Tuesday

February 5th, 2008 by Ian

Yeah yeah yeah, It’s all very complicated.  I think I want Obama to win personally, but after a mere 219 years of all-white presidents, I’m not holding out that much hope. So as I can’t vote (what, being a British citizen and all), I’m forced to point and laugh from afar. I could join the ‘Brits for Obama‘ facebook group I suppose, but lets face it; the guy doesn’t need someone like me supporting him from over the pond.

This video makes all the salient points and stars McLovin (from Superbad) and professional Steven Colbert impersonator Ed Helms. I suddenly feel enlightened since it’s been explained so firmly and passionately.
