Swine Flu!



Just to let you know, you're all going to die from it. Or probably not. Aye, I think I'll be going with not. And that'll be the end of it. Probably start sleeping in a bubble just to be sure.

Ciao,

The Apprentice

I don't watch The Apprentice, I can't stand listening to the "business advice" of "Sir" Alan Sugar, a man who made crap computers and had all the demeanour of a used car salesman before the information age fell into his lap. (I think I should have used some more speech marks there, made a crappy "You're fired" joke. That would really have sent ol' Alan crying when he read this.)

Anyway, I caught a bit of this show the other night, which I've never thought was any good. But this had me laughing.




This is a breakfast cereal advert one of the teams came up with. Honestly. Would you honestly buy a cereal from a inflatable pedophile who roams your house shouting about berries and fruit in that annoying tone?

Even better was the 'brainstorming' session where they came up with it.



Pause it at 1:29 and that guy's face is what mine would have been like, but with fists swinging. No, wait, what are you doing? Don't applaud that! Don't applaud that Geordie's David Brent-esque dance about Pantsman! Even the voiceover guy has subtly inflected his tones to raise a verbal eyebrow at how mince your idea is. Stop! You're competing to help out Alan Sugar not..."I think that's verging on being silly now." REALLY? At what point? Was it the bit where he declared "pants are the future?" Or performed what can only be described as an epileptic's version of Night Fever?

Argh.

Put me in The Apprentice. I'd well run the show. Or probably just intimidate the other contestants till I won.

Tits say no to Labour

Money mone is in a huff about the 50p tax rate, its only 50p in every pound you earn over £150,000, not under, so she must be fully loaded, 50p for the super-rich indeed, right on.

Lingerie tycoon Michelle Mone has withdrawn her support for Labour in anger at its economic policies.

The Scottish boss of the Ultimo bra empire said the UK Government's recent moves risked alienating business and damaging the economy.

The 37-year-old branded the new 50p top rate of tax "a disgrace".

Leading Scots QC Paul McBride also announced he had abandoned lifelong support for Labour and joined the Conservatives.

Ms Mone, from Glasgow, told the Scottish Sunday Express newspaper: "I certainly don't mind paying more tax if the real benefits are being felt by schools, the health service, the elderly and businesses.

"But to just come and ask for more money to throw away is crazy."

She said it was not fair to punish all the UK's entrepreneurs who had often taken huge risks to make their companies a success.

"I used to be a Labour supporter but I'm not anymore," Ms Mone said.

"None of them have impressed me with their policies and actions, bringing the economy to its knees."

Mr McBride said Labour were now "mendacious and incompetent", relying on smears rather than policy.

His decision was welcomed by the Scottish Conservative leader Annabel Goldie who said it was a sign that the Tories were making "real progress" in Scotland.

A Scottish Labour spokesman said: "Labour have had to take tough decisions over the budget but they are the right ones to help get through the recession.

"Mr McBride and Ms Mone might be upset with the increase in tax for people earning over £150,000. However, the vast majority of Scots support that policy."

Worst. Hoody. Ever.

Batman full-zip hoodie with eye holes


Ah, finally the perfect sweatshirt for walking the streets at night. The $75 “Batman Full Image Full Zip-Up! Hoodie” by Lot 29 is sure to NOT creep anybody out when you zip the thing all the way up over your face and take the neighborhood watch concept to a whole new level.



“But, Doug, how will I see with my sweatshirt zipped all the way up?!” you whine, defiantly. Through the magic of see-through mesh eye holes. Think of it as an unsettling two-way mirror into your local criminals’ souls. Caped Crusader? Maybe not. Awkward kid with his sweatshirt zipped up over his head, possibly with some mental issues? Absolutely.



The hoodie can be purchased at SuperHeroStuff.com, although they’re all sold out at the moment.
Of course they are.

Mr Chi City

I still don't know if this is a wind up/very good marketing campaign or whatever, but it is easily one of the funniest things I've seen. Presenting the totally unaware, unintenionally hilarious walking stereotype that is Mister Chi City.

Where did that guy who ranted all the time go?

Bad news, I'm back. And my name's Mark for future reference.

Been failing a degree by wasting ridiculous amounts of time doing stupid stuff. Two more projects to go, but I'll be posting more regularly now. Incidently, if anyone's got some good academic material on cyberpunk/steampunk novels or the journalism of jazz, holla. Don't ask-it's a liberal arts degree, you end up doing stupid stuff like this all the time.

My Wet Dream!

Hi guys, I'm 17 this month... and that means one thing, learning to drive. Below are a few pictures of my dream first car (Golf MK1). I hate all the usual little boyracer cars, so the Golf will do me. It's a looker, and for a car that is sometimes more that 30 years old it's meant to quite nippy and have good handling. Thanks for reading, and have a nice Easter!
