Googlism

Our search term for the day (someone actually found us this way): Osama bin Laden you fucking asshole now I can’t find a job. Or how even a mundane search engine can provide intrigueing tranches de vie.

Wake The World

Not only do they look beautiful, they actually serve a worthy cause: copyright free anti-war posters.

Help needed

Can anyone tell me what a dental dam is??

Advance Romance

One of the most heartfelt ballads I’ve heard in years.

“they’ve been doing it for years”

Relevant to our most recent topic in the Kill Ugly Radio forum:

“UK No. 1’s on this day
five years ago: Doctor Jones by Aqua.
ten years ago: No Limit by 2 Unlimited.
fifteen years ago: I think we’re alone now by Tiffany.
twenty years ago: Too Shy by Kajaspoogoo”.

Rare Tape

Any offers? only $5M (Aus).

more nonsense

Tiny sick tears?.
John Major?, looks more like C Major.
Andrew Lloyd Webber for Chancellor?.

ooh! Matron!!

I got sent an e-mail today which contained numerous examples of double entendres which have been broadcast on British TV and radio.
Here’s a few examples:-
A news anchorwoman who, the day after it was supposed to have snowed but hadn’t, turned to the weatherman and asked “So Bob, where’s the eight inches that you promised me last night?”.
Michael Buerk, (a rather staid BBC news presenter) watching a live link from an outside broadcast of a female colleague and a male astronomer during coverage of an eclipse, remarked “They seem cold out there, they’re rubbing each other and he’s only come in his shorts”.
Jack Burnicle, sports commentator, talking about motorcyclist Colin Edwards tyre choice during a race: “Colin had a hard on this morning in practice, I’ll bet he wished he had a hard on now”.
Chris Tarrant (presenter of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”) being interviewed about the shows first £1M winner, Judith Keppel: “She was practising “fastest finger first” by herself in bed last night”.
James Allen, sports commentator, interviewing racing driver Ralf Schumacher:
“What does it feel like being rammed up the backside by Barrichello?”
Pat Glenn, weightlifting commentator: “This is Gregoriava from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this morning and it was amazing”.
Enough.

Food and love

If music be the food of love, play on!

Fast, fast!

I’m afraid this one has left me speechless – and a little hungry on the side…
Thanks Slap!

John Etheridge

I went to see this last night and they were great.
Also got to speak to John briefly afterwards and he has plans to tour again soon with his other band Zappatistas.

3 short quizzes

How well do you know your vegetables?, Are you an intellectual? ( I would guess, almost definitely SOFA ) and
How well do you know your beards?. The latter only included because FZ is given as a (very remote) option.
“It’s a thin line between an intellectual and a pretentious bore”
– sounds like an insult from the zappa.com forums (without the misspelling).

Steve Bell

The poodle is off to Rome this weekend. Meanwhile Junior plans to re-stock his toybox.

The Law is an Ass

Paul Kelleher doesn’t deserve this. Background info from last summer.

Actors Who Shouldn’t Sing

An impressive list of actors who shouldn’t sing, but went ahead and did anyway – soundbytes included. Link found at our very own forums.
