Professor Elemental's hip-hop ode to tea: Cup Of Brown Joy. Quite frankly it has left me short of appropriate words. All I can say is: Best. Song. Ever. You ain't heard a rap until you've heard rap performed by someone wearing a pith helmet. Class. Crank it up and sing-a-long: "when I say Earl Grey, you say yes please"... "when I say Herbal, you say no thanks"... [subbed by Lincoln Phil].
Nick S The Hamster is epically keen (multiple email alert) that I post Colour My Eyes for Musical Friday, and a great tune for a Friday it is, especially if you are spending it watching the sunrise on Ibiza. Or at least if you wish you were spending it watching the sunrise on Ibiza, which is possibly slightly more likely [subbed by Nick S The Hamster].
Brains Is A Dancer is a silly, but amusing, viral ad thing coming to an inter-web near you soon. And by soon, I mean you've probably been emailed it 50 times today already [subbed by f00]. FAQ: Who is Brains?
Level 20 of MOTAS is out now... although I assume MOTAS addicts are already too busy puzzling and/or dancing in the streets to be reading this [subbed by PhoeNixe, sorrowless_joe & anon].
As this is the 21st Century it's probably been a long time since you've had need to use something so lo-tech as a Blank Sheet Of Paper, you're probably busy emailing, IM'ing, Facebooking & Twittering people, but should you need to go Old Skool and actually, you know, write something, the question is where can you get one of those Blank Sheet Of Paper thingies that people used to use in the 'good' old days? Well fortunately there is a web site with a totally logical (and not at all ridiculous) solution that will hook you up with a piece of paper in about the same time it takes you to click print (and walk to the printer). The only question now is... where can I find a pen? [via dump trumpet].
Simon Cowell is king of the beavers are true. Fortunately the owls are on the case... [via op-pop].
Musical Friday I'd thought I'd share, and present to you some 80s Gold (yes, pun intended, as if you need ask) :
R2D2 Translator comes in handy when you need to understand what a droid (that's fully conversant with English yet refuses to speak it) is saying. Especially if you know, like, you're in a bit of a pickle, and Obi-Wan is your only hope or something, or you just want to hear point'n'click in droideese [via rojo huron].
Why Is The Rum Gone?" [via opulus-populus].
GoogleDrive, not beyond letting you move a little car around Google Maps whilst muttering brum brum to yourself anyway. Personally though I don't need more than that. Brum Brummmm... [via op-pop].
Flaming Cursor. Oops. Too late... oh well, at least it's not quite as dangerous as a Flaming Sambuca [via Dump Trumpet].
