You know me

Is this me?

Magnum Veritas

Now, that special edition pistacio flavoured magnum was a big hit with me. Green, yummy, and entirely made of lard - which is an ideal snack, let's face it.

I'm weirdly revulsed by the Australian specials, with a swingin sixties theme. The Candy Warhol is Musk flavour with popping candy?

Why not go the whole hog and make it taste of rancid wig and car crash victim?

Visions of Science 2000

Visions of Science 2001:
"Grease may be an important product used every day in our lives but it is typically perceived as being dull to look at and of little interest to photographers. This picture, produced with macro photography, overturns that perception by illustrating grease in a more friendly, organic and artistic way."
I've just had a press release about this year's competition - let's hope they've hired a good PR company?

Take my site away from me

I like these, they are very funny. This is not a fact that bodes well for my continuation in my job.

Never mind.

Tickytacky

I like masking tape, and I secretly have a theory that it's the stuff that holds the universe together - all that dark matter is infact a handy lo-tack stickytape.

So I like this site.

Throw sausages at that unmitigated twat, Blaine.

The Phantom Menace

It's not often I cry laughing.

What a fantastic piece of writing - Man buys toy airship. Toy Airship escapes in night. Man has adrenaline spike in night.

Ow, my sides.

I've done the internet now

I've just found this.

I've had enough of the web. It just goes in to too much detail.

eBoy

James has been ordering boys off the interweb. And likens the experience of using gaydar to shopping for men on Amazon.

I'd like to comment his post, but I'll blog it instead. He's missing a few things...
1. Returns Policy
2. Ratings
3. Occasionally, they'd send you an email saying 'Based on your previous shags, we'd like to reccomend a spotty twunt that smells faintly of eggs', and be genuinely surprised when you complained.
4. If you had a quick excursion into the opposite sex, or, say, heavy S&M, you'd never be able to get your reccomendations sorted again.
5. It would tell you how much you could make if you'd turned tricks with your past shags.
6. Everyone would have Bradd Pitt on their wishlist

Speaking of which, buy me a present. Go on.

Glitter For Brains

The great and only semi serious Glitter For Brains blogwar goes up a notch.

I told the _other_ housemate the URL.

*evil grin*

Buy one for Sarah?

My instruction manual

Knobs!

And lots of them. Phwoargh.

Entirely safe for work, too.

Whilst you're at it, check this awesome animation - needs sound...

Collect the Set

Moss has a brillliant take on the collectible. I want.

Comic asides

I don't like comics - they're slow to read, and I subvocalise the text, which really frustrates me. The quality of the page illustration never lives up to that on the cover (Sandman, I'm pointing at you).

But I want to love comics. They're right up my alley - pictures, scifi plots, coolness. It's a shame I don't get on with them.

But web comics... interest me. Reading text on screen is different from a book - it's browsier, and nothing like the absorptive, hypnotic, miss-you-tube-stop experience of a novel.

But Scott Mc Cloud Rocks. I suggest you read the article at the link.
