Mark Gormley Without You – Funny Music Video

A singer who looks a little like Ned Flanders knocks out a little ditty here: (wait for the singer it’s worth it).

In what is described as  the latest for Local Singer/Songwriter Mark Gormley. The tune is an original and a little more rocked up than his previous videos. It’s about heartbreak and loneliness, there the videos called for lonely, desolate places

Nice 🙂

Google Wants to Make the WEB Faster…

A new site launched by the guys and gals at Google is aimed at helping us all get a faster online experience, the site is all about performance, “from Internet protocols to the browser to website development.”

When the Web is faster, the apps are faster; the Googlers seem to think we should be able to browse through pages, run complex apps, view enormous images, and stream HD movies without delays or lag time of any kind.

All sounds good to me 🙂

Clay Shirky: How Social Networking and the Internet can make History

This clip from the ever impressive TED talks is very apt especially as news from Iran streams to the world.

Clay shows how Social Networks and the Internet (Facebook, Twitter and SMS) help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censorship.

The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics.

Clay Shirky is a prescient voice on the Internet’s effects and argues that emerging technologies enabling loose collaboration will change the way our society works!

I think he has a point and we are witnessing a sea change!

While news from Iran streams to the world, Clay Shirky shows how Facebook, Twitter and TXTs help citizens in repressive regimes to report on real news, bypassing censors (however briefly). The end of top-down control of news is changing the nature of politics.

“Dyno” the Puppy Survives Being Flushed Down Loo

What an amazing piece of advertising this story has provided for Dyno Rod – this little puppy survived a flush with disaster after his 4 year old own decided to give him a wash in the toilet!

Daniel Blair was quoted as telling Britain’s Daily Mirror that he tried to clean the muddy 1-week-old cocker spaniel because he was muddy, and he flushed him down the drain.

After the RSPCA and Fire Brigade failed to reach him the people at Dyno Rod came to the rescue and got the  the little fella out, who is said to be doing fine 🙂

“Get A Grip” & “Comfort Wipe” must have products?

Finding it tiresome “wiping” well worry no more the Comfort Wipe is here to solve your troubles.

This ad is funny and disturbing in so many ways, it contradicts itself and also has some very dodgy stereo types but with over half a million views in less than a week it is doing something right (or wrong 😉

“Wiping” then “Showering” Please! 😮

For what is basically a lump of plastic to help wipe your nether regions after you go to the loo!

Don’t forget if you order now you get “Get A Grip Free 😉
