Boy my blog has become incredibly comedy focused of late. I can’t help it! I gravitate towards what makes me laugh.

He is fantastic. What an incredible comedian! Kind of a Bob Dylan style clip to Travis’ “Selfish Jean”. Adam posted this on his facebook site, had to watch it and am now sharing the love.

Have to say favourite: I am going to create a new video game. It going to be about people, taking care of people who have been injured in other computer games. I’m going to call it Super Busy Hospital. And…. if you have a fat friend, there are no seesaws. Only Catapaults.

Harry Potter – the end

July 22, 2007 at 8:35 pm | Posted in books | 1 Comment

Just an update from my post yesterday about Harry Potter. I have actually finished the book. It actually didn’t take me that long to read (quite easy), and I think it helped that I wanted to find out what happened in the end. No I am not going to spoil it. Suffice to say that she satisfies everyone’s expectations on the fate of Harry Potter…

The question for me will be…should I read it again?

I like Harry Potter…so what are you going to do about it?

As I am working through the weekend, I have sitting next to me the latest Harry Potter book. Yes I am one of those suckers who have been caught up in the hooplah. I mean I have invested a lot of time in it so I may as well see it through. I’m not a quitter. It is hilarious thinking about the 6 books and remembering exactly what happens in all of them. I have to say, I read the first 4 books to death, but the last two (the longest!) I didn’t read again. Sooo when I started to read the 7th and final, I realised what the hell is going on! I don’t remember what happens. What the hell is a horcrux, who the hell is R.A.B and why does Harry have a locket…hang on he has a thing for Ginny? Well the BBC has helped me out in this case by asking people to summarise the first 6 books in 100 words. They had more than a thousand people write in, and have published the top 6. Here are my favourites:

From Gillian Iverson, Hong Kong:

“Harry and his posse gots ta eliminate gangsta V-Man and his evil yet sexeh followers lest they destroy the world. V-Man has already got Harry’s posse members shot down (family, godfather, Dumble-D), and it’s a-time for revenge!
Harry and crew has got to cruise ’round the hood to find V-Man’s treasures to destroy, and only then can they take him on and blast his ass! Pow!

Hermione and Ron want to hook-up, but feel that Harry’s hollah is more important at the moment, which is way cool, but Harry ain’t bovvered, because he knows that luuurve will get him through.”

 From Emma Pearson, Nottingham

“BOOK ONE:
Harry:  : D
BOOK TWO:
Harry:  : )
BOOK THREE:
Harry:  : |
BOOK FOUR:
Harry:  : /
BOOK FIVE:
Harry:  : (
BOOK SIX:
Harry:  : ‘  “

Seriously cool video clip

There are some clips that you watch that make you go WOW. That keep you entertained for the whole clip. You are gripped. This video clip is fantastic. It’s by zZz. Thanks to Infosthetics for blogging about it. It’s a one take, one shot music video which had professional gymnasts who performed typical design/film/video editing effects. I am sure all of the editors watching will be going “COOOL!”. It was recorded in front of a live audience as part of the opening of the Stedelijik museum, and that audience watched the whole shoot. Although that is pretty disappointing because as an audience member you w0uld want to look at it from above rather than at trampoline level.

 PS they could only do it in one take!

My Simpsons Avatar

We seem to have a Simpsons theme on my blog of late. Mainly because I am excited. I was forwarded the Simpsons Movie homepage because you can create a Simpsons character in your likeness. So I created mine. Unfortunately you can’t really do anything with it apart from use it elsewhere on other sites. But even then I have had to screen capture and save it. It would have been great if this Avatar could be used to navigate the Simpsons Movie homepage, or perhaps have  a widget where this character could become your profile picture on your social networks. But here she is…

I recently read about 7-Eleven in the US changing the name of 12 of their stores to the Kwik-E-Mart in anticipation of the Simpsons’ movie. Why don’t we have that in Australia. I would love to be able to say that I shopped at the Kwik-e-mart today. The kudos, think of the kudos!

Apparently they have also introduced products that you can buy that the Simpsons buy in the cartoon, for example Squishees. It’s the reverse of product placement. Both parties win!
