How not to be seen – the remix


Comedic genius + Halo =

and now for something completely different.


The amazing drumming kid – soon with lightsabres!


This kid is apparently 4 years old, which makes me feel especially old and useless. And concerned that a race of Uberkinder will soon take over the world.

Actually, considering the mess the world’s in at the moment, maybe the Uberkinder are our only hope.

All hail the Uberkinder, and their herald –  Igor Falecki. 

Top 25 tv characters – my 1st lazy meme in only my 2nd post – woot!


#1 – Dale Cooper, – Twin Peaks. Pie. Tibet. His friendship with Harry Truman. The fact that he resisted Audrey Horne. Pretty much my perfect man.

#2 – Dr. Mark GreeneER. I cried when he died, you know.

#3 – Toby ZieglerThe West Wing. For being the best grump in history, “No, I’m disagreeing with you. That doesn’t mean I’m not listening to you or understanding what you’re saying. I’m doing all three at the same time.”

#4 – Josh LymanThe West Wing. The Mary Poppins of primetime TV. And then there was this –
Josh: All I’m saying is, if you were in an accident, I wouldn’t stop to get a beer.
Donna: If you were in an accident, I wouldn’t stop for red lights.

#5 – Spike Buffy/Angel. He had the best character arc in TV history [gowan, i’ll fight ya for it]. ‘I may be love’s bitch, but at least I’m man enough to admit it.’

#6 – Catpain Black UdderBlackadder Goes Forth. Wibble.

#7 – Wu Deadwood. Fuckin’ Hang Dai, Wu!

#8 – Commander DataStar Trek: TNG. Would you please continue the petty bickering? I find it most intriguing.

#9 – Det. Frank PembletonHomicide: Life on the Street. He has a stare that’d make my old-boss Melvin quiver in his stylish-yet-affordable boots, and tore through murderers and rapists not with his fists, but with his brain.

#10 – Det. Dutch Wagenbach The Shield. I’ve only seen the first 2 seasons of this, and am getting the 3rd as I type. Mostly to see how Dutch ends up, and whether he ever finds an inner bad-ass, or simply solves all the cases while failing at almost everything else.

#11 – Calamity JaneDeadwood. Best. Drunk. Ever.
E.B. Farnum: Be brief.
Calamity Jane: Be fucked!

#12 – to be continued – i’m off to sell 8 hours of my soul a day.

update [part 2 will go up once I’ve finished watching the first 3 seasons of The Wire] –
Looking at other people who’ve done this one, I found this perfecto description of Toby Ziegler: He lives in his own world and all he wants is to get other people to live there because it’s better (and it is).

And so the story begins –


Zeitgeber (from the German for “time giver”) is any environmental cue that keeps circadian rhythms entrained by resetting the internal clocks that generate endogenous rhythms. Zeitgebers include light, food, noise, social interactions, and alarm clocks.

My zeitgebers are beschissen. It’s 6am, I tried to sleep some hours ago, but my delightful flatmate was snoring like a train, and my mind was wandering across to the wrong side of the tracks, and so, on the day that I put on a shirt and venture into Manchester to finally find a job, I shall not have had a wink of sleep.

But in other, better news, the Germans refer to a pimp-mobile as a Schlampenschlepper, which makes me strangely happy. 

Time for tea, I think.
