A catchy little ditty about VD – once you’ve heard it, it’ll stay with you like an itch you can’t quite scratch.
There a track from the new Flaming Lips album online here. Be patient though: the Flaming Lips only kick in about half way through the video.
Amazingly, though, bitrot has spotted a niche in this seemingly saturated market: the period zombie movie. Think about it: people love period movies… everyone loves zombie movies… it’s a combination to die and then come back from the dead for. As you read this I’m making a joint pitch of my script to George A. Romero and Merchant/Ivory. Watch out for it on a billboard near you: Anthony Hopkins and Judi Dench, plus a load of white-eyed extras, in… The Day of the Remains.
Here are two excellent music videos, just perfect for a skivy Friday. I was alerted to both by my brother Simon’s blog.
And for seconds, one for all the Grandaddy fans.
It’s a sad day when the Lego recreation is more exciting than the real thing. Still, you know what they say: What’s the difference between Hayden Christiansen and some Lego? One’s a lifeless piece of plastic devoid of dramatic potential or human expression… [insert punchline here]
My latest incisive movie review has been blocked from publication. It’s censorship, goddammit!
The dark side clouds everything…
An honourable mention to the first reader who can tell me who this is. I’ll let you guess for a bit before I post the answer.
Here’s a starter for ten: it’s a famous white male…
The Internet is the spiritual home of the weird amateur crossover video, but today I think I’ve come across two of the weirdest: a commentary on UK ID cards in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan and yet another Star Wars pastiche… but this one using the Rebel Alliance as a metaphor for organic produce.

I love those new snacks shaped like Othello and Morgan Freeman in Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. They’re so Moorish.
This is insane: a bloke who’s building his own life-sized R2-D2. So far he’s done the legs. I can’t help wondering if he gave up at that point after George Lucas suddenly equipped those same legs with rocket boosters in Attack of the Clones. That’ll teach the nerdy little twat, George probably thought. He should be out driving fast cars and chasing girls, goddammit! Now where did I put that modelling cement…?
But I digress. I’m sure I’m right though. George keeps an eye on these things, you mark my words. If our plucky hobbyist manages to work his way around this one, expect R2-D2 to suddenly be made of liquid metal and be able to morph into a desk lamp at will in time for Revenge of the Sith.
Volkswagen are understandably upset by an unofficial viral marketing ad that associates the VW Polo with suicide bombers.
Good Lord, what could be responsible for such wholesale detriment to our vulnerable youngsters? Why, The Incredibles of course! An erstwhile favourite of this site, blogrot now sees the film for what it is: a shocking bacchanalia of impudence, hate, violence, bottom-smacking and “dressing to maximize the [cartoon] female form and/or skin exposure“.
That link again: “dressing to maximize the [cartoon] female form and/or skin exposure“.
We all know it can sometimes feel like Christmas is becoming more and more commercialised, more bloated with tat, less about kindness to our fellow man and more about getting the last shite hyped toy in town at any cost. So it’s good to see that, in this golden age of consumerism, some of the old traditions, the ones born out of the most essential human values, still remain.
I am, of course, referring to the two-storey singing Christmas tree at the Trafford Centre.
