I have been very very busy if late and so haven't had much time for this. back with some serious posting by tomorrow (hopefully).

In the meantime, there is no better way to make up for absenteeism than by being funny when you come back (ok, well, posting someone else being funny.)

Thanks for the concern Rose.

I hadn't seen this for so long but on watching it again I nearly fell of my seat at this bit....

    I fucking love that shit. Quiz:

    In this scene, Cartman is to Mr. Garrison as

    a) Stephen Colbert is to George Bush
    b) Hugo Chavez is to George Bush
    c) Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is to George Bush
    d) all of the above

    (Michael just a reminder for you to check out the Stephen Colbert thing if you've missed it...your cup a tea for sure.)

    Made me laugh out loud. Thanks.

    (and to the true South Park afficianado, the answer to Cartman's question is "present them.")

    keir, gotta say none of the above because cartman is a kid and although he sort of knows he is being rude he states beforehand that it doesn't hurt anyone so he can't see why it would upset anyone.

    colbert could see that it upsets people (upsetting the right people i might add)

    ditto chavez

    ahmedinajad, whilst correct in standing up to bush is by no means a great guy on many other fronts (after all, he is someone who has been able to maneuvre himslef on top of that particular countries shitheap - just like bush, blair etc)

    sorry to treat a flippant(ish) question seriously

    did u all see team america?

Thumping The Tub Video

Image Hosted by

I have made a few short movies. Here are links to free downloads for them all in the order that I made them (as far as I can remember). Please feel free to use, distribute, disagree with, shout at etc etc

  • Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition

  • How Far Is It From Here to Nuremberg
  • This is my attempt at a video for the excellent, if worrying, David Rovics (see links) song

  • What You Like
  • I believe the word for this is "splenetic". Only 20 seconds long.

  • Imperial Measures
  • What is going on in Iraq? Some things you knew, some you didn't. A couple of bits of info are out of date now.

  • Wish You Were Here
  • Wish You Were Here is a 6 minute film about the unprecendted rate of animal extinction we are currently experiencing

  • Gorillas and us
  • I don't like creationism, neither did Douglas Adams

    Arse of the month

    Image Hosted by

    The inaugural 'Arse of the month' award goes to our very own Scottish First Minister Jack (Joke) McConnell. He seems to spend a lot of his time sucking up to english politicians and yet it appears they don't even know his name. Follow the link to see..
