rabitguy pointed out this astonishing guitar solo by Bireli Lagrene. 'Sgood. (How many guitarists are there on my flist? ISTR atomicat's been known to noodle around as well, and runtt.. what other musical talents are youse lot keeping hidden?)
Old lady versus impatient driver. Don't miss this brief gem of the web. ^_^ (Then again, you shouldn't miss the first one either. And you should keep raw bacon from sitting on top of cheese in the fridge, though I seem to have terrible difficulty convincing others using the fridge here of that. Speaking of which, orona_red came across this remarkable club. Truly, the web offers all)
I wonder if it'd be possible to make a good remix of the Shaun the Sheep theme, combined with Belbury Poly's "Farmer's Angle"..
A fascinating little piece on the future role of the British armed forces, and the direction society might take, according to their prognostications.
Via mejeep, a rather cool vintage set of photographs depicting a rabbit hunt. =:)
The video for Gorillaz' "Rock It" owes a little to Mr Gilliam, it would seem.. and Gotan Project - Santa Maria is quite a good video to a nuevo tango track.
paka in particular might enjoy this remarkable horse.
So, what really happened at the end of Life on Mars? Find out, direct from the lead writer and co-creator. (This may also mean spoilers in the comments, if you've not yet seen the episode)
plushlover recently unearthed an old Apple II magazine ad, which is just begging for a caption contest. =:D
Here's an amusing quote of the NSFW variety. And the linked pics are worth seeing.
This posting explores the depth of plagiarism one "artist", Todd Goldman of "David & Goliath", has been engaging in, and making very good money at it, with prints selling in the range of $1k, and plenty of other mass merchandise. The example where Dave Kelley's work was unequivocally copied is one of the more blatant.
Vaguely handy: a buyer's guide from MacRumors, listing dates of each product line's revisions, suggesting whether it's in mid-cycle, due for a bump, or just updated. Of course, the historical evidence is of limited value, given processor availability's now the realm of a different manufacturer. (And quite a friendly relationship it appears to be, too - seems the particular Xeon used in the new dual quad-core Mac Pro is currently only being supplied to Apple)
Anime again. ^_^ Darker than Black, from Bones, seems to be off to a reasonable start. It's set in 2015, where the unnamed city is walled off by Hell's Gate, beyond which few know what lies. Some do come in from the outside - people with superhuman abilities, acting as hit-men, working to a strict set of rules, known as Contractors, and mediums, or Dolls.
A somewhat different tone is taken in Sola, which begins as a seemingly conventional chance romance, only to wind up in a swordfight climax as the apparent heroine is targeted by a bespectacled stranger. Neither seem outstanding, but they're quite enjoyable, one episode in.
spidermouse noticed that there's a screening of Paprika, amongst other anime features, in London on May 5. Not that the other selections are bad, but that'd be worth the trip alone, if it's an option.
