Random & Fun

Post by c_nordlander » Sat Jul 04, 2009 6:28 pm

A thread for the fun stuff! Pictures, photoshops, links, what have you.

Webcomic strip made me LOL
Are you really gonna take it like that?
Riding on the missile with a cowboy hat?

Oh, well the world is gonna end
So dance around the fire that we once believed in
Oh, wanna tear it down again, now
'Cause there's nothing left for us to bleed
Give it up, the sons of anarchy
So come around and have another round on me!

DANCE, F***ER, DANCE, LET THE MOTHERF***ER BURN!

Oh no they didn't. (That could be the motto of Failblog.)

Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

I found about this just today and it blew me away: a TV advert for Luden's cough drops, with sounds and music by Frank Zappa.

The celeste runs and "snork" sounds were later used in several of Zappa's albums, and it's downright amazing how it works so well in that context. He won a Clio Award for his sound editing work.

The voiceover at the end is by Captain Beefheart.

I recommend Photobomb, a fairly new blogthingy featuring photos which have been hijacked, like so:

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Of all the things I had to do in school that I appreciate not doing any more, I think putting up with people trying to make learning fun has to rank pretty highly. No more making posters about balanced diets, comics about bible stories, or having people try to teach me through song. Oh, wait - email today:

The Rap Guide to Evolution (7 Jul)
**********************************
Tuesday 7th July 2009, 19:30-21:00, Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary
Studies

Canadian actor and rap artist, Baba Brinkman brings his tongue-in-cheek
humour to the Darwin Festival painting intricate rhymes about anything from
Natural Selection, Artificial Selection, Sexual Selection, Group Selection
and Evolutionary Psychology in a clever way that will have the listener
pumped and having an unforgettable, laugh-out-loud, comedy experience.
It's quite possibly something funny and nerdy, but the whole idea of anyone explaining anything through rap is one which brings back so many bad, bad memories, that I couldn't delete this fast enough.

I suddenly understand how the rapping dog from Titanic fits into the natural selection process.

Oh yeah, meant to say this yesterday - it finally rained yesterday. That made my brain extremely happy indeed. I'm not used to this seasonal warmth  :)

Trace said he didn't see himself as an icon, but wanted to be a logo. Frank settled for being a font.
