Frames an' that

A piece of spam

This is a piece of spam I recieved.

Weirdly, it's not addressed to my email address.

XIII. The Route to the North
Columbuses or Gamas, ever pass,

Archangel Winter, darkness on his back

The face of a Quos ego),

Appear to lift up from the lake;

And even funnier, it doesn't make sense.

Jog Your Memories/Mammories*

Here's one of GD Production's most popular series, Calvin the nerd.

Ten Months Later

GD Productions are back! And what better way to do a comeback with a rockin' music video?

Good news!

Flight of the Conchords is now being televised on BBC Four in the UK!

More info on the Beeb site.

The King of the Divan

A little bit of Europop here. Belgian punk Plastic Bertrand sings in... French.

Oh, snApple!

Well, the launch date of the UK iPhone* has been confirmed by Steve Jobs, and one will certainly be on my Christmas list (actally, it's the only thing on the list) and I am literally pissing my pants for the phone. Apple have made some UK version adverts (with no Mitchell and Webb) and are parading O2 from the rooftops.

I really cannot wait!

*Nov 19th

Drama *gasp*

I hate documentaries containing a large slab of CCTV footage showing some car crashes and how they narrowly avoid people of importance, such as the Pope.

Like this example here (the only question is, how can he claim $5million at a petrol station?)

Danish Bacon

Another remnant of my early childhood, the Danish Techno Billy band Cartoons, with their legendary single Witch Doctor.

Non-Europeans, observe.

EDIT - I've found out the Cartoons are still going, eight years on from them "disappearing". They've passed three albums and a tour of Denmark under my nose. I'm a bit naffed off.

(Pop Stars + Wardrobes) - Crushers = MOM

A piece of Saturday morning TV I remember fondly here. A little magic trick on MOM featuring Busted and wardrobes.

Gr8 Cake

I love telly. Especially telly that is broadcast every Saturday morning. Now Saturday morning programming seems to be dead and buried, here's Blue crack pot Lee Ryan hurling a cake up a wall in Ministry of Mayhem.

On the other hand...

Chris Crocker has some good views. Except for the last five seconds.


I'm sure you've all seen this video of a 19 year old called Chris Crocker crying about Britney Spears.

Apparently, in an earlier video, he said he would commit suicide if anything bad happened to Britney.

Farting fart fart

I don't want to get too morbid today, so here's some Dutch people talking a load of bollocks.

Colin McRae dead in chopper crash

Can anybody clarify that this is true? I have news 24 on full blast and I'm searching through all the news pages, and it's like looking at a yo yo. One paper says that he is feared dead, the other says he is dead. Can anybody give proof that this has happened?

I just hope it hasn't.

Conveyor Belt Hero

I've landed at Newcastle airport many times before, but I've never witnessed an occurance as strange as this.

Taccy Dream

I have some views...

Some people may not agree with them though.

Track this debate. It may not go down well.


This person has things to say.

Thing is, she can't say them clearly.

Come to... Aaaargh!

A rather terrifying performance of Come to Daddy for you here (as if it wasn't scary enough) performed by the Dillinger Escape Plan.

Eye Pain

Maree hurts my eye. Ouchy.

Lumpy bump

Here's another one for you, since I'm getting in the swing of things.

A bump in a ceiling caused by water damage. Nice.

Totally legless

Plumbers in Dorset have unearthed a stash of prosthetic legs under someone's floorboards left over from the previous owner of the house.

Little Richard crashes... again!

Silly Richard Hammond crashed another car, but left the wreckage unharmed.

More here.

Roller Coaster Tycoon - Psycho Edition

I love this little video, because three things appeal to me.

1. It's pointlessly destructive.
2. It features roller coasters.
3. It's computerised.

Conchord, not Concorde

I have recently "discovered" an American HBO delight about a band from New Zealand called Flight of the Conchords.

Basically, Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie travel to America (either because they've been kicked out of New Zealand or they're looking for a new life) and sing a hell of a lot of songs. And many, if not all, a bloody hilarious.

And, my personal favourite:

I have one hundred noses

A very pointless video here, featuring a man with his wrist in a cast. He has three things that you will never have.


Talking about shredding...

Risk it For a Biscuit

I'm really starting to miss Saturday morning TV, since TMi really isn't appealing to me. I mean proper TV, like the first series of the BBC version of Saturday Show. But none of the weak crap with Angellica Bell and whatshisface who now presents Experimental, I mean the good stuff with Dani Behr and Joe Mace*. The kind of programme which can make kids cry.

A nice cruel game called Risk. The rules are quite simple, take in a prized possession when you visit the Saturday Show studio, get picked to play the game and then choose to risk your fluffy teddy bear you have had since you were a newborn for a signed Backstreet Boys toilet seat cover.

You will then have your poor stuffed bear stuck on a conveyor belt, heading straight towards a metal chute with six circular saws sticking through it in a cartoon-esque style.

You then have to complete a wire maze, spelled out in the word "RiSK". If you finish it within the time limit, Winnie the Pooh will be taken off the belt and you will also win the crapper cover.

If you don't, a grim end will come to Pooh.

*I didn't mind the Fearne Cotton series, mainly because it was Fearne Cotton.

Gold ol' Where's The Brain's went and did it again! He's perfected the art of GarageBand in this rather fantastically catchy song about a Zelda character. Take a peek for yourself.

T-Shirts, prints and other stuff too...

If you don't want a copy of Spam, that's OK. It is your choice to get one, just like it is to click on this link, browse through some posters, shirts, mugs and stickers I have made and buy a few.

For those who DO want a copy of Spam, I will be selling them via eBay or Amazon. Don't hold your breath, though.

Spam Ram

CD updates!!! I am now taking orders for my lovely sex-ariffic album that will be released at a later unspecified date (announced shortly). If you wish to place a pre-order please drop me a line at and stick in the subject line "I want a copy of Spam". I will be selling the CDs at about £4.99 and postage around about £1. The copies won't be professionally produced ('cause it's spam!) but they will play well.

A little treat, you get one track free, track twelve!
