In case you were wondering what I want to be listening to on the beach, here are some videos that I can’t wait to get the CDs for!
frnkiero andthe cellabration weighted
I don’t care that it’s not got footage. Let’s flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Lily Allen URL Badman
I don’t care that this very site to which I owe two thirds of my writing career (‘career’). Lily is brilliant!
NME interview: Gerard Way On Solo Life After My Chemical Romance
I don’t care that there’s not a tune in sight. (I do care that I can’t go to Reading or Leeds. Take pictures at Leeds Jacki! Please!)
Yes/No Show with those guys from X Men
I first saw a GIFset of one of the questions on Tumblr, then the video popped up on the YouTube suggestions and it’s funnier with the accent. This probably isn’t available on CD. Whatever.
I’m not sure whether it’s heyfever, a cold, exhaustion or sheer utter relief that I’m not in school any more (or maybe all four) but my eyes hurt and I can’t really remember how to type so I decided that instead of the News we should share bullshit news stories that are almost too weird to believe.
Unfortunately after two years of minimal commenting I am aware that maybe two people will respond so here is a video with unlikely pertinence to the ISIS shit that’s currently going down which is actually too depressing for me to write about before my eyeballs fall out. So Tim can say some stuff!
If I remember correctly he follows up that sketch with the Pope Song… can’t remember if that has any baring on current events so I’m going to see the dogs and maybe complain about football.
I mean really, it’s a ball game. Even I know that you’re supposed to score goals and stuff…
Doing this on a superduper tight time limit so let’s just watch and enjoy – or not – these gems.
Thank you to Jacki for showing me this – it’s definitely made me think about public perception and domestic violence. I think it’s called the Kitty Genovese effect when nobody in a group helps an individual because they think someone else in the group should? I’m half-remembering Watchmen and last year’s psychology lessons, seriously, let me know if I’ve butchered science!
I haven’t heard the next one properly yet so if it’s bullshit and not just because of UKIP I do apologise, please let me know.
This isn’t news but I just saw it so let’s pretend it’s still Oscar season! Lupita for president of the world!
It’s kind of funny/depressing that white people in the UK are giving themselves cancer on sunbeds for a tan while tanned people are actually bleaching their skin. Citizens of the universe: the media is full of crap so ignore it and please wear sunscreen. Love, Francesca xxx
All we need is YouTube, ladies and gents. That’s it. Ever.
The Chainsmokers – #SELFIE PARODY (by The Midnight Beast)
If I ever get bored by The Midnight Beast, please quietly remind me of this video. Is it a parody of another song? I usually can’t tell (and I think I’m in these guys’ demographic, haha)…
Dumb Ways to Die
Maxim showed me this and I think it might have been a big deal a couple of years ago?
Woa. Plot twist. I have a feeling that this is like Canvas Bags in that I will hum it whenever I’m near a train.
Axis of Awesome – What Would Jesus Do?
This one counts as Religious Studies revision.
Last but not least…
10 Chick Flick cliches you will NOT see in He’s Just Not That Into You
Watching this is now on my “shit to do in summer” list. Someone on Tumblr noted that at no point do any of the guys pretend to be women, the realisation of which makes watching the whole thing a second time twice as joyous.
Happy Earth Day everyone. I think we are all supposed to turn our lights out or something. As an advocate of long-term solutions I recommend regularly turning your lights off when you are not using them, as well as engaging in other resource-preserving activities, such as switching off your appliances at the plug, walking or cycling wherever practical and forsaking traditional materials for those with longer lifespans, such as canvas bags.
I’m told it’s quite simple…
Last week I had two posts that almost got published… part of me wants to try to beat it this week but maybe it’s not worth the lack of effort.
That said, I’ve been going through a phase lately where I sit down to write and cannot think of one single thing to say that a) I haven’t already said, b) is halfway interesting to write and c) is halfway interesting to read. I’ve decided that it definitely is a phase. I WILL COME UP WITH INTERESTING PROSE. (If you exist, muses, please drop me a line.) In the mean time, who else wants to punch singing fruit in the face?
Jesus Christ at least Veggie Tales has a purpose. I think it’s supposed to have a Christian message or something, haha (remember the time I watched it in RS? Simpler times, when I thought it was okay to slice up Ruby’s art and readers left messages so I knew who they were. Hint hint).
Speaking of which, can anyone explain why this cartoon involves palm trees, shrubs and green hills in the Middle East?
Genuine question: if you’re going to educate children about the Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection – especially with the Christian perspective of ensuring they believe it – surely the first thing you want to get right is the basic setting?
