It’s my own fault for not keeping up with DJ Earworm since I saw his United State of Pop 2008 video going around Facebook.* I wasn’t always a mash up fan because there would always be just a few source...

office: these habits don’t make the lists

Since I’ve been in the “working world” I’ve always been fascinated by Office Top Ten lists. My most recent office environment has caused me to be interested in annoying office behavior. Close quarters, little personal space, noisy environment. It’s ripe...

food: lick a lolly, indeed!

Some critics have called Daniel Craig the coolest Bond yet, but I’m not sure this is what they had in mind… 😈 Set for distribution during National Ice Cream Week (June 1–9 in the UK), Del Monte created the popsicle–sorry,...

fan trailers: Green Lantern as it could be

Since today is apparently Geek Pride Day,* it wouldn’t be right to let the day pass without a very geeky post. Both Marvel and DC have had their fair share of attempts at bringing long-standing comic book characters to the...

ads: what would YOU do?

Ah, a square of vanilla ice cream coated in chocolate. I doubt anyone of my generation doesn’t recall those ads with “man on the street” style interviews, in what seemed like New York City, asking people what kind of crazy...

video: Oh my god, look at your skin!

Chris mentioned Coupling in his blog and Peter Serafinowicz mentioned this video in his twitter stream… must be some kinda fate thing in the air. It gave me a nice chuckle: It’s actually very much like the fake ads Peter...
