Great School Tips

Their ideas are nothing new, that hand raising method was very popular in the 1930s-40s.


Barney's kids moved to Finland and formed a heavy metal band. Barney was too strict as a parent. And in response to his unbearable parenting style, his children got into all kinds of mischief, drugs, and stealing children from their bedrooms at night.

Scottish Humor

I love Scottish humor. This is from a show called Chewin The Fat. However I should probably translate. Wean is a child. Fags are cigarettes. And when she speaks quickly she says: Attention please. Is there maybe someone who's no got what they come in with. Who's maybe missing something. Maybe a wean or something.
I had to listen to it a few times to get it all.

The next one is even harder to understand. Tayside is the central lowlands area. The lowlands is where the Scots dialect comes from. I'm always looking up words in Scots from bagpipe music.

Next hang a friend from the ceiling, if he loves you I know he won't care

Does anyone remember watching Square One TV on PBS after school, or is is just me? I remember this bit vividly - I had the song stuck in my head for days. Thanks to Square One I knew about fractions, scale and palindromes. It aired on channel 7 every day after school, and it was followed by an odd British show called Doctor Who. With no cable I really didn't have much chance to grow up normally. The lead singer here is Larry Cedar, who I still see pop up on the occasional episode of shows like House.

And then there was this video. I loved Square One 8% of my childhood.

"I created you! Stop it!"

Check out this awesome use of CGI in the movie "Attack of the Sabertooth".

Daleks Invade Earth

I love Dr. Who, but not as much as these people. I have a ton more, but this is probably too many already. The first photo is from the Pimp my Dalek contest. Yes it is real. Google it.

Kthulu + Crochet = Awesome

Kthulu is becoming popular on this blog so here is my contribution. Maybe we should have a Kthulu award for the best post of the month or something like that.

Raumsonde - cheese or font?

Think creative types tend to get carried away with how cool they are? They do, and here's the proof.

Ad Agency or Indie Band?

Cheese or Font?

I did much better on the indie rock quiz than on the cheese, but now I'm hungry.

Enter the Kitty Shot!

Video Description:

"CornerShot is an Israeli-designed gun mounting system. It’s built for military special forces and police SWAT units. Basically, it lets a person peer around a corner without exposing themselves to harm. It is fitted with a camera on the front and a video display to the rear, so the soldier/cop can see what they are aiming at.

That’s all well and good, of course. It’s an interesting trick, with a few specific applications. What happens, when somebody gets the bright idea not only to look around a corner, but to have the weapon disguised while they do it?"

I think she kilt it!

Gary's Mattress

Annie and I have been sjopping for a new mattress lately, maybe it would be worth the trip to drive out Van Nuys. Maybe we should leave Stanley at home though...

Let's go around back

Bron, that kid with the chicken picked up his bad habit from watching cartoons.

Where can I get this soundtrack?

Since I've forced you all to watch "Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog", I know you will enjoy the 8-bit version.

Pushin' up Daisy

In a murderous fit of Donald-like rage she had done the unthinkable. With every blink she could see the tortured faces of her nephews Huey, Dewey & Louie. And in a brief moment of repose—this, she felt, was the only way out.

Who wants a slice of bread?

Wait! Put the knife down, it's Stanley!

Those Were The Good Old Days

I really don't know what to say about this photo.

New Who

You'll have to indulge me with this video. The new season of Doctor Who has begun and the first episode aired in the UK earlier today. Doctor Who is one of the longest running shows in history. The first episode aired in 1963, the day after JFK was assassinated and I've been watching since I discovered it on PBS when I was 12 or 13. This is not just a new season, but a new era for the show. A new lead actor (the 11th to play the Doctor) and cast, a new head writer, a new production team and a new direction. The show has always been meant as a story for the whole family, the rare program that parents can watch with their children. The new head writer turned down a contract with Steven Speilberg and Peter Jackson to take it over and he is stripping the show back to what it essentially is. It's not science fiction, it's a fairy tale. The mysterious prince arrives to save the world from the monsters, and to make those around him better, in all of time and space.

As the episode begins the Doctor has just saved the world and died in the process of saving the life of a friend. His body has regenerated and his ship is crash landing. He doesn't know who he is or even what he looks like, and he lands in the middle of trouble. The episode won't air in the US for another two weeks, but if you'd like you can watch it here. Even if you don't watch check out the season's trailer. He's still the same man with curly hair and a long scarf, but it's a whole new show.

Dear Brandon,
Why would you show me a picture of Sean Connery wearing a red tablecloth around his loins? Is it because you knew that I would see it and be both disgusted and intrigued at the same time? Is is because you knew that I would google it in order to find out more information? Well, you were right! And here is the trailer for ZARDOZ!!!!

The Mighty Zardoz

If you haven't seen the 70's Sci-Fi movie Zardoz...DON'T! ...or do... I dunno what you're into.

Here is a user review from IMDB:
"I've seen some weird movies in my time! 'The Holy Mountain', 'Human Highway', 'Men behind The Sun', 'Nude For Satan', 'Pink Flamingos', 'Dune', but NOTHING as weird as 'Zardoz'! Nothing! "

Kool-Aid Man meets Ben Franklin


Happy Easter

May your path to righteousness run red with the blood of your enemies.

We've Got a Bit of a Misunderstanding Here

And in an alternate flash sideways, Benjamin Linus lives a life as a prison counsellor . . .

This real prison training video stars a young Michael Emerson in 1992. If I were that prisoner I would do what I was told.
