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 ;)

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!)

This might just be the most genius set of macros ever. They won't, however, make any sense if you've never seen Look Around You... or the last three series of Doctor Who, but as they're from [livejournal.com profile] ihasatardis, that bit goes without saying...

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!

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.

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 ;)

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!

Oh, thank goodness, all gone.

At least I was able to get sensible uncle away from loony-tunes aunt for a bit to talk computers (he's found a cheap and good parts store nearby, he's going to email me the address).

And now, laughing at the fundies time!

I found a great compendium of shite scraped off fundie forums here. It's not updated anymore, but the archives are hillarious. For example:

"Did you know that all bulls are males? How can these bulls mate to have more bulls? It's your funeral evolutionists. Admit evolution is a pathetic fantasy created by scientists because they can't accept God."

*headdesk*

[After being told 'they mate with cows, you idiot'] "Then, why don't the bulls that are born have some bull like features and cow spots? If a bull mates with a cow, wouldn't you get a female eventually? Evolution is dead water."

*double headdesk*

So yeah, feeling much more chipper - at least I know now I can get by without letting the more moronic elements of my family get to me... I just have to remember not to tar the other ones with the same brush (from the way sensible uncle was rolling his eyes at some of the shite that was being come out with today, it would appear I'm not in this boat alone!).

Best thing I've seen in ages. I won't say a thing about it, except; is there a calendar near you? Look at it.

Today I discovered two interesting things.

1: Wikipedia has an entry for Ant and Dec.

2: Said entry contains this typo: "Later the duo moved into bondage presenting."

Ah, right on cue, the sound of distant hopping. *Gets the shotgun*

Now, I don't know if this is an ITV sanctioned Christmas joke, something to do with the comedy awards, a hacker, a bored techie or a disgruntled employee or what, but ITV's website has suddenly adopted a very truthful outlook to its programming. Only on the front page mind, but still. Anyway, I don't know how long it'll be up, so I provide a screencap (I haven't resized it, so it's behind a cut) and I can assure you, this is genuine and un-tampered with in any way *swears on what's left of Dec's hair*.

Why is it I seem to gravitate toward fundimentalist 'christian' sites when I can't sleep? The inherent comedy, sure, but is there something else? Anyway, here's today's postcard from the edge: A Virtuous Woman.Org. The Virtuous Woman is, you guessed it, a stay-at-home mum, housekeeper, cook, gardener, entertainer - doormat. Just feast your eyes on this little gem:

"Do you have a servent's heart when it comes to your marriage? My mother has always been a good example of what a serving wife should be. She dotes over my father daily. She fixes him hot meals every night after she comes home from work and seems to tirelessly find ways to make his life easier. I think of her when I think of the kind of wife I want to be. I enjoy serving my husband. He is loving, works hard and appreciates a clean home and good food. In the time that we have been married I have found a deep source of contentment from serving him in the smallest ways."

It also seems that the Virtuous Woman can't spell. Servent? Or maybe that's federalist english... Akhmed? Princess? Bueller?

When we serve our husbands we begin to grow softer spirits, more loving hearts. When we serve our husbands our marriage is renewed and nurtured. When we serve our husbands what we are really doing is serving Jesus. We will be blessed in ways we can hardly imagine!

I feel sorry for people brainwashed like that. Sure, looking after our loved ones makes us better people, and being a caring person is another step on the road to being a good person, but it's give and take. The worst part is these women are conditioned into these roles based on the assumption that a book put together out of a millienium-long worldwide game of chinese whispers is all factually correct. It's always been my personal assumption that the contradictions and inconsistencies in the bible stem from... well, at the risk of sounding melodramatic, the wickedness of mankind. Lesser lights in the evolution of that book may have 'tweaked' a few things to suit themselves. It's pretty anti-women, all told (even though Jesus seemed to be a pretty equal-rights kind of guy.. hmm..). Which is interesting, cause aren't we told right back in Genesis that we were created in God's image... you know, like, all of us?

Ok... I have no idea where this rant came from... But hey, at least I now know the right way to wash dishes!

Scott Mills just played the Badger Song on Radio 1...

The world has truly lost it!
