I've been sleeping half-decently for weeks; I thought I'd cracked this sleeping lark again. Ah well, I'm awake at half two so you know what that means...

Weird internet stuff!

I think this may very well be the single most... British thing I've ever read. Never mind that half the world could very well melt, leaving the other half in the most dire of straits (and now I have the urge to listen to Walk of Life...), won't somebody think of the tea?! Those who know me know that there is probably more tea in my bloodstream than plasma, and I'm pretty sure the good folks at the Suki Teahouse have me on their Christmas card list, but my god!

...I need a cuppa ;)

Hee! XD I can't help it, I always want to hug him, despite his more... /controversial/ sayings. XD

I really DO, it's terrible!!!

First sign of madness: crushing of Jeremy Clarkson
Moose: Motorhome Racing Grid Girl says:
^crushing ON
[Manda] says:
XDDDDDDDDDDDDD
[Manda] says:
"I CRUSH YOU NAOW"

"Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!"

*howls*
Moose: Motorhome Racing Grid Girl says:
and thus a tragic typo was responsible for the mangling of one of the country's top broadcasters
[Manda] says:
Clarkson's fellow presenters, James May and Richard Hammond, had this to say;

"Well... you can't say the bugger didn't deserve it."

"Hey; does this make his Lifetime Achievement Award actually /meaningful/ now?"

"I think it does!"

"Success!!!"

I must share this slice of musical genius with the world at large. I was sitting watching the scenes in the background when it struck me that I could name pretty much all of the games involved! (Wot, no Advanced Lawnmower Simulator? For shame!)

I love my Mum dearly, but sometimes following her train of thought requires satellite tracking...

Me: *leafs through Radio Times* Oh, yay!
Mum: Yay?
Me: Ant and Dec's new show's on on Saturday. The only thing is, I'll have to restrain myself from being physically sick, Piers Morgan's one of the judges.
Mum: You know that judge on Dancing on Ice, the one they always booed?
Me: Jason Gardiner?
Mum: That's him, he was on Masterchef last night, cooking. He's quite nice really. You know who he was up against?
Me: No.
Mum: That guy...
Dad: No, we don't know that guy.
Mum: Stan.
Me: Stan who?
Mum: Or maybe it wasn't Stan... oh, what's his other name? Played some sport...
Me: Stan Collymore?
Mum: *in a 'don't be silly' tone of voice* No, he's dark skinned.
Me: You didn't say this guy was white!
Mum: No he's a cricketer... he was in the jungle thing.
Me: Phil Tufnell?!
Mum: That's him! It's not very like Stan is it?
Dad: He was stanin over there, that's what confused you...
littlemoose: A screencap of James May giggling with his hand to his face, with a small animation of him giggling in the corner. (TG - May - *giggles* (dracothelizard))
I just nipped into the other room to relay some news I read on TGS to Dad...

Me: Hey Dad, apparently team Top Gear are filming a race to the North Pole - James and Jeremy in a four by four and Hammond travelling with a team of huskies.
Dad: He'll be alright, he can always eat the huskies. (pause) This doesn't bode well for Clarkson...
Me: *giggles, then thinks about this and giggles a lot harder*
Dad: Well, I wasn't going to say anything about him being eaten by May, but...
Me: It's OK, I think I got there on my own!
Dad: *laughs*

Dad and I were in our favourite cafe today. Unfortunately, somebody there had stuck Westlife's Love Album on the cd player and was letting it run through. By the time they started murdering Easy I was in despair:

Me: Oh, god, next stop, the seventh circle - I swear, this is hell's elevator music!
Dad: *giggles, covers face with hands*
Me: What?
Dad: No, just I had this thought about 'going down with Westlife' but no-one needs that.
Me: For the love of god, mental floss! Or the number of Richard Hammond's brain surgeon!
Dad: Why, have you developed a sudden liking for celery?

This then put me in mind that I hadn't told dad about the bloody hilarious Four Horsemen Drivers of the Apocalypse comment fic that turned up on [livejournal.com profile] rionaleonhart's journal. Dad was impressed, but he had his own take on it...

Dad: Actually, I can see James May in a little hippie Beetle - you know, with big flowers painted on it - smiling and waving at people as he goes past and Clarkson on the phone going, 'You haven't quite got the hang of this Grim Reaper thing, have you, May?'

*-*-*-*

Like you couldn't tell, I've not had much more than an hour's sleep since Wednesday, and I'm now at the seeing through time stage...
littlemoose: An animated icon of Ant and Dec, dressed in lederhosen, doing a bottom slapping dance. (aad - bottomslappers)
Dad and I have already had some fun with this, (we kept coming back to the idea of one or the other with a voodoo doll...) now it's your turn!

The Writers' group is having dinner tonight at one of our members houses... should be fun. Dad and I are bringing two cheesecakes, some hollandaise sause and dad's speciality egg dish-thing... I dunno how to describe it, but I know it's nice - it must be, I don't really like eggs, and I eat it!

*dashes off to kitchen*

Because if the heat's getting to you as badly as it's getting to me (I'm a silly, I got dehydrated), you will need cheering up. Animation is shit, but who cares!

Today, we went for a drive in the 30° heat... blasting Christmas songs on the car stereo.

I love my family.

Because you need to smile today.

The soundtrack is inspired!

One thing I learned pretty quickly doing media, is that the way you edit something can change the whole feel of it. Slowing shots down, or speeding them up. Change an angle. Even something as simple as changing the music over a piece of film can change the whole mood of it. I found these trailers online a while ago (promotion pieces for an editing studio) that exemplified that - making the Shining into a romantic comedy, that sort of thing. And tonight, I found this. Genius, sheer hillarious genius!

Oh and you can find the original trailers that wowed me so much here. The one for West Side Story is the mad kind of brilliance.

dad (the original marvel fanboy) and I were discussing comics:

Me: I hate when they reset the canon every few years - like superman, where Lex is
Dad: President, yeah... or Batman
Me: oh, god, yeah, Dick buggers off to be nightwing leaving Bruce to go through Robins like they're going out of fashion!
Dad: He can't find a Reliant Robin!

This is extensively cool. Got a site you really hate? Nuke it, have meteors hit it, have a cow shit on it, or cover it in pretty flowers, to name but a few. I just spent the last few minutes having god almighty himself smite godhatesfags.com - very satisfying ;)

Context: While out and about, to protect my ipod screen from scratches in my handbag, I have been carrying it in an old odd sock (just as an interim until my next paycheck and I can get a hardshell case). It looks cool actually, it's one of those black socks with different coloured heel and toe parts... Anyway, this has led dad to randomly appearing with new (and increasingly daft) cover ideas. (I think my favourite so far was actually knitting a sock with the binary for 'ipod' in the pattern...). Thus:

Dad: (appearing suddenly in room) I'm gonna make you a cover for your ipod!
Me: You are?
Dad: Yeah, I'm gonna buy some waterproof material and make you a little windcheater for it. (He draws a coat-shape in the air with his fingers)
Me: A windcheater?
Dad: Yeah, well, then you can show it to people and tell them it's your Apple mac!

...He puts waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much thought into these puns!

Hahaha! GMTV just did a tiny behind-the-scenes on Ant and Dec's movie (I missed most of it because I was out of the room and had the sound off, so had no idea what I was looking at when I returned ). OMG... [livejournal.com profile] madscot, when you said Ant was in glasses, I did not realise the true magnitude of geekdom entailed in this - bad shirt, hair plastered to expansive forehead and the NHS specs... and Dec! Gordon Bennett! Ginger hair and a bum bag! It took me a minute to grasp the full glory of the hair because I was laughing at the bum bag so hard I teared up...

The movie had better be funny... ;) It's not out 'til next year, omg...

Listening to The Museum of Everything on BBC7, they came up with this little gem on education in the distant future:

"Well, class, back in the ancient twenty-first century people worshipped deities called Pop Idols. In the mythology of the time, it was believed that these warbling sirens were created by a strange, two-headed creature called the Antondec and a sinister figure known only as Doctor Fox."

*shrug*, made me laugh ;)

First up, the writings of a very funny person who says what most of us think while surfing Chick.com. Sure, mocking the deranged ramblings of Jack Chick is like shooting fish in a barrel, but at least in these hands, it's a very funny barrel. Check his tags for a few more! If those tickled your funnybone, there's more here, by a different, but equally funny person :) ([livejournal.com profile] jamaisneutral, he's done the biz on your favourite one! ;))

If mocking the fundies is not your cup of warm beverage, may I suggest this? It's a cutup of an old sex-ed film and a home plumbing tutorial video (and a few other things). I had to clamp my hands over my mouth so I wouldn't wake mum and dad with my laughter!

I found it here, the website of an exhibition of artworks that have, for one reason or another, fallen foul of copyright laws and pissed off huge corporations.

I especially reccomend all the art in the visual art section and the film short State of the Union, which combines the two most horrifying things visited on television screens in the last few years - George W. and the Tellytubbies.

Finally, the cure for all life's woes, now in handy quicktime format!

Dad: Set the video for the big brother repeat!
Me: *pulling face* Why? I'm not into it this year.
Dad: For whatever reason, Davina's in a bikini at the end!
Me: *sets tape*
