An informed discourse on the joys of British rail service.

Via revar, the results (2.7MB Flash), "Move Your Dead Bones" (not nearly as gruesome as it might sound :) of a vulpine mad scientist combined with a dance track. ^_^ (Aha! mycroftb says it's by zarla)

Some rather cool tail paintwork for Frontier Airlines. eg ocelot, red fox, and raccoon. You can also download three of their TV spots, featuring a rabbit, a penguin quartet, and (briefly) a bear.

Doctor Who viewers in the UK might want to note that Saturday's schedule has it on at 6.30pm, rather than the usual 7pm, to make room for the 50th Eurovision Cheese Festival (8-11.20pm), this year hosted in Kiev. (Streams will apparently be available to those without local coverage)

Some interesting things wash up on the digital beachfront from time to time - most recently, a Czech time travel adventure little known outside its home country, "Tomorrow I'll Wake Up and Scald Myself with Tea":

"One morning, Jan Bures (or is it Karel Bures? I forgot which is which :) discovers that his twin brother Karel (Jan?) has choked to death on a bread roll. However, Jan knows what to do - Karel was a pilot for Universum, a time travel agency. So he dresses up as his brother and goes to his brother's job. He soon discovers that his brother was part of a Nazi ploy to hijack a time travel rocket, go to 1944 (when Germany is in trouble) and give Adolf Hitler an A-bomb. Although he can do little to prevent this, the ploy fails - firstly, the hijackers are double-booked with two American tourists, and secondly, they land in 1941 - when German soldiers are threatening to conquer Moscow. When they return, they return before they actually took off (this is Jan's attempt to save his brother by preventing him from suffocating). And things go downhill from there..."

Singing cubic animals. From Japan, naturally. And they'll sing in harmony with each other, too.

Do you recognise this rabbit? I'm trying to discover who the artist is, but there's not even a squiggle of a signature.

The EU software patents saga rumbles along - this time, swinging back towards sanity, with the new draft saying that "software would only be patentable if it controlled a physical process, or a controllable force of nature."

I'm afraid I know nothing more about this residence beyond what you can see.

And to balance out the tone of this entry, this cautionary tale of a Welsh housewife and her electric underwear.
'k.. that got sent before I wanted it to go.

I have 5 of their ads, coast_3_0.mpeg, DirecTv_3_0.mpeg, expand1_7.mpeg, foxy_3_0.mpeg, and jackandfoxy3.mpeg. Been a while since I grabbed those.
D'oh! Still, better to have it sent early, than accidentally closing the window/tab.. I've done that once or twice, and it's always quite frustrating - somehow feels quite uncomfortable, trying to repeat one's writing.

Ahh! Cool beans. Socks has posted a few ^^ up there, but it looks like there's only some overlap - he's got expand1_7 and jackandfoxy3, which I've snagged, along with the others. Do you have a bit of webspace you could post the others?

(Wonder why they've retired them from their site? Maybe they're still there, just not linked)
Afraid I don't have hosting capabilities. I can certainly forward any long that you'd wish, if you have the inbox space.
By all means! You've seen my domain in files I host (like the image above - I've enquired of Trixi if he's her work), and the username is exactly what you'd think it would be. ^_^ I don't think the hostrabbit in question has any size limits on my mail queue.
