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.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Definitely, rather niftier a livery theme than the norm, even if missing a certain species. ^_^ Oh, and check out the links Socks posted ^^ up there for some additional TV spots no longer on their site. (Why are so many airlines quite so dull? United's got to be one of the worst - not simply battleship dull paintwork, oh no.. that theme continues to the in-flight torture, with an airline magazine that probably hasn't changed in fifteen years, and movie selections dull enough to not only be inoffensive, but positively narcoleptic. Especially when all the US airlines are whining loudly about their misfortunes, wouldn't one of them like to try distinguishing themselves? Compare to, say, Virgin, where on one flight I saw - unedited - Gods and Monsters, and South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut)

That's maybe a plausible explanation for that home, yes. Of course, I'd wonder if it wouldn't be simpler just to (literally) move to somewhere less soggy, but as long as you're not prone to sleepwalking, I suppose it must afford some pretty neat views. ^_^

Wonder if the raccoons still visit? (Do you get any nearby? I'd love to see pics, if you do!)

You'd think so. But then people aren't always the most rational of creatures, either.

(Do you get any nearby? I'd love to see pics, if you do!)

Oh yes. We've had one hanging around for some time now. They don't usually come around during the day, and they generally don't stick around when they do. But if I can ever get a photo, I'll see if I can get it posted.
