On Monday's DPP over at [livejournal.com profile] no_takebacks we played at making our own Texts from Galactica (these are based on Texts from Last Night. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pressdbtwnpages for the awesome idea :D

I went a bit crazy ;) Here are my Pilots themed Texts from Galactica: )

The BBC have done it again.

In this entry I told you all about how the BBC asked people send in Olympic logo ideas, and then they published a selection, including one that was a straight rip off of Goatse (if you don't know what it is, look here - SFW, just contains a description not the actual picture.)

Well they've asked for reader contributions again in the wake of Google getting a new favicon on their magazine page, saying "You've read about Google's new favicon - now design one yourself - either a personal favicon or one to represent the Magazine, and send it to us".

Once again, a goatse has slipped through the net.

Scroll down the page to the bottom, the contribution in question is from "Steven, Coventry" (and is SFW).

Just in case the BBC take it down, I took screenshots! SFW.

A bit of an update entry here, using crappy phone camera pictures to show a little of what I've been up to :)

Firstly, due to a deal between mum and Pete I was the agent delivering 43 beers to Pete (and buying said beer), leading to a rather odd looking collection of goods when I made the purchase - 43 beers and a packet of naan bread for our dinner that evening. I'm fairly sure that the collection would have looked a whole lot less odd if it hadn't been for the naan bread.



The clunking of that lot in the car sounded quite dreadful as I accelerated, braked, turned corners... Luckily nothing broke :)



In other news, the Christmas Market is now in town! There's a stall that sells cool keyrings and 3D wooden puzzels. I've got some pictures of the keyrings, but not the puzzels :( Also, not the full spectrum of keyrings - there are lizards and frogs, and elephants, and giraffes and all sorts, all made from natural rubber :)





There's a stall with mulled wine and hot chocolate (regular hot chocolate and hot chocolate with rum or amaretto).



There's also a stall selling all kinds of Wurst, cooked over a barbeque. This stall is ben's favourite! :D



Finally, I took this picture of a very funny card:

NSFW! )

Carols at the Cathedral tonight. I'm really looking forward to it :D It always feels like Christmas is really on its way when we have them. It also really enthralls the history part of me, as we stand in the Nave of the Cathedral with all the lights off, holding lit candles and singing carols, because I feel a real connection to the past - 100 years ago, 400 years ago, 1000 (or so) years ago there would have been people there doing much the same thing. It's hard to articulate, but it feels amazing.

I've been pretty wound up about Proposition 8 (with good reason), but I felt we could do with a lighthearted but pointed interlude to giggle over for a bit :)

And so, without further ado, I present:

Proposition 8, The Musical starring Jack Black, John C. Reilly, and many more...



From various sources, but the one that actually prompted me to watch to and then post was Boing Boing.

[livejournal.com profile] benc has just come to a startling conclusion that I feel must be shared with the world.

The last time the economy crashed Norman Lamont was Chancellor.


This time, Alastair Darling is Chancellor.

I read Nurse Ratched's blog through Bloglines and the one that popped up today Evil Children amused me greatly, so I thought I would share it. It isn't the entry so much as the picture included in it, from the Des Moines Register:



For those of you who cba to read the text off the picture it says:

OLDS 1999 Intrigue, Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car.
Only driven for 3 weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet. [number removed to protect the innocent]

[livejournal.com profile] lisaofdoom posted about this on her LJ and I thought it was sufficiently funny that it had to be shared some more:

What if people bought cars like they buy computers?

My favourite one:
Helpline:
"General Motors Helpline, how can I help you?"
Customer:
"Hi! I just bought my first car, and I chose your car because it has automatic transmission, cruise control, power steering, power brakes, and power door locks."
Helpline:
"Thanks for buying our car. How can I help you?"
Customer:
"How do I work it?"
Helpline:
"Do you know how to drive?"
Customer:
"Do I know how to what?"

It seems that at least one newsreader is becoming sick of the prominence given to the Paris Hilton story.

US newsreader Mika Brzezinski has attempted to burn her script live on television in protest at being made to lead her bulletin on Paris Hilton.



Shame the men she was reading the news with were such cocks really.

So after the new London 2012 logo was announced the BBC invited people to send in their ideas. Please look at number 5. It will be noted that they clearly chose someone who has never seen Goatse.cx (sfw wikipedia link) to moderate the pictures. Either that or the editor is having a huge giggle.

In case the picture gets removed I have saved it to my website (screenshot of the page on BBC here and produce it below:



The explanation that goes with it states Sean Stayte: "Here is my design for the Olympic logo. It is very simple and so memorable. The hands represent Britain pulling together to reveal the Olympics."

*giggle* Hands Britain pulling together my arse :P

That's made my day :D

Edit: They did remove it. Just as well I took the screenshot then :D

Brought to my attention by The Daily Show is the US advert for the Supersoaker Oozinator.

The advert would appear to be real (the product definitely is).

How genuinely terrifying (and full of innuendo) ;)

I can only assume that the editor of the Daily Express saw yesterday's LJ entry, as today they have appeared to gone one better. Yesterday's Mail screamed about The Bombers on Benefits. In a fantastic followup today's Express throws away any semblence of restraint possibly shown by the mail by announcing to the world that

Bombers Are All Spongeing Asylum Seekers )

It would appear that the Express now hold the same set of prejudices the Mail do.*

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, tabloid journalism. Appealing to the lowest common denominator anyone?

I was perusing the BBC's "News Front Page" section, wherein they have a collection of photographs of the days front pages. I was most impressed with the offering from the Daily Mail today, as it would appear that the mail have found a way of making sense of the attacks on London. As most people know, the Daily Mail hate anyone who aren't Middle Aged and Conservative but have special bile reserved for:

  • students

  • teenagers

  • asylum seekers

  • people on benefits



Their headline today? Well its not "Tube Bomber Prepares to Strike" which the Telegraph offers up, nor is it the "Police name bomb suspects" from the Guardian or "The Vital Clue" offered up by the Independent. The screaming headline from the Mail, picked up also by The Sun of all papers is:

The Bombers on Benefits )

So the big scandal about the London attacks in the Mail's eyes? It would appear that this the fact that the benefits agency didn't identify them as terrorists earlier and cut them off.

Wish I'd thought of that...
