Cool Things I found This Week



Guy from States is making dirty cars into works of art.

The thing that astounds me most is that he's not just drawing a picture, he's actually removing dirt to reveal the picture.

A truly remarkable talent on a truly remarkable artist.

Emperors new Clothes?


Was catching up on my news, current affairs and general media bullshit, when I came across this article.

I acknowledge I am not particularly fashion conscious, and certainly not an avid follower or trend-setter (eeek, just writing the word trendsetter makes me sound like my mom!)

I further acknowledge that I do need to wear glasses most of the time, and am not particularly observant.

However, surely I am not the only one who can see they are talking about 2 completely different dresses!

They are, aren't they?

Grylled Nuts

There seems to be an increasingly frequent mention of Bear Grylles... the man who can survive anywhere or anything.
I would love to lock him in an empty room and shout "Get out of that ya bastard" with an evil Mwah ha ha!

Discovered there is even a Bear Grylles drinking game! Not one for the faint hearted either.. so 1 pot screamers beware!

And for a Chuck Norris-esque laugh once in a while - check out the Bear Grylls Quotes and Facts

my fav.... Bear Grylls doesnt walk places….he spins the earth to wherever he wants to go!

And for those smart asses - yes I know I shouldn't be driving while I have a mobile in my hand, but I think my bending the law can be overlooked in view of the sheer incredible lunacy of their actions.

Marketing Imagination


So, I get a special offer to purchase some JVC earphones at a discount.  Various colours available.  Those Kooky marketing execs have gone the extra mile and selected a fruit to go with the colour:
I was imagining the conversation around the whiteboard:

BOSS: "So, we got 9 colours - and we need something fruity to go with them.... any suggestions?"
EXEC1: "Well we got Lemon Yellow, Lime Green"
BOSS: "Lemon Yellow ok, but lime's too obvious - anything else.."
EXEC2: "Erm.... Kiwi?"
BOSS: "Perfect! - now what about red....Strawberry or Raspberry?"
EXEC1: "Erm, Strawberry, cause traditionally Raspberry is Blue"
EXEC2: "Yeah, but Raspberries aren't REALLY blue are they - lets be different... we'll go with Raspberry Red.."
EXEC1: "But then what about the Blue?"
EXEC2: "Well, we got Blueberries?"
EXEC1: "That's even more obvious!... what else ya got?"
EXEC2: "Errrrr... Peppermint?"
BOSS: "Interesting, not really a fruit, but certainly confectionary... Hmmmmm - I like it!"
EXEC1: "So, if we're keeping away from the obvious, what are we going to call the orange one?  An orange is just orange?"
EXEC2: "Well, there are different types or oranges, what about blood orange?"
EXEC1: "yuk, too Vampiric, what about Valencia"
BOSS: "ooooooh, that's GREAT!  What's left?"
EXEC2: "Erm, we got the Black, White, Purple"
EXEC1: "OK, Do we want Plum or Grape for Purple?"
EXEC2: "Grapes are green"
EXEC1: "They can be purple"
EXEC2: "Aren't they called red grapes... like red wine?"
BOSS: "Yeah, but they are more purple than red really... I'm liking Grape, we'll go with that.  Now, what's Black?"
EXEC1: "Raisins, Prunes?"
EXEC2: "That's dried fruit, doesn't count!"
EXEC1: "Is Olive a fruit or vegetable?"
EXEC2: "It's a fruit - But hardly fruity or "gummy" - wouldn't Licorice be better?"
BOSS: "Olive is perfect! Well done! - got anything for white?"
Silence for about 5 minutes, other than the humming of a projector....
EXEC2: "Spearmint?"
EXEC1: "We already got a mint...."
EXEC2: "Milk?"
EXEC1: "Hardly fruity..."
EXEC2: "well, neither is Olive, but you got that one thru..."
BOSS: "Coconut Milk!... Yes, coconut - Fantastic!"
*Smug grin*
BOSS: "So, that's it, well done chaps!"
EXEC1: "Erm, we forgot Pink..."
BOSS: "Dammit! Pink, what's pink?"
EXEC2: "well, we could go really exotic with this one, like Guava, Dragonfuit, or Pink Grapefuit, or theres...."
EXEC1: "Peach?"
EXEC2: "Peach????"
EXEC1: "Peach"
EXEC2: "But peaches are peach colour, not pink"
EXEC1: "There are sorta pinky peach, like a baby's bum"
EXEC2: "But the headphones are a vibrant pink, an exotic pink, they are just crying out for something tropical"
BOSS: "Oh, Peach will do, I gotta get off and do the school run anyway"
EXEC2: "But..."
BOSS: "Great job guys, let's go..."

Cool things I found this week

I had to sell some tyres for work, so put them on e-bay.  First I did a quick bit of research to see what the competition would be like, and what sort of things people put in their description.

I came across this sale: TYRES 18" (2) BOTH BLACK, ROUND, SMELL LIKE RUBBER


You HAVE to check out the description.. please click on the link cause it's too big to post here.
 
I felt compelled to post a question:
Hi there, I don't really wanna buy them, but I live close by and wondered if I can come over and have a wiff sometime. I love the smell of rubber.


And to my absolute joy today I got a response:
Dear bluehappybunny,
I can see you are a kindred spirit, and obviously a connoisseur of the fine rubbery fragrances. Such enthusiasm, and love for the rubberous pong must of course not be dampened. So please feel free to come by and do what happy bunny's do with the tyres. Who knows, we might be blessed with the sound of little screaching bunny tyres in 9 months time!!

How I get Sidetracked and Repulse myself.

So I'm doing the Global Corporate Challange right, and I get an e-mail from one of my team members.
He is a huge show-off, knocking up 30,000 + steps in 1 day and telling everyone about it, putting my measly 11,000 steps to shame.
Anyhoo, he is taking credit for putting up a picture of the A-Team on our team page.  The fact that we called our team the A team the fact that he put it up there seemed a bit of a no-brainer, but I did admire the fact that he used a pic of the old A-Team, not the new One. (pic he posted above)

His E-mail was thus:
That photo is my doing. I wanted to get Mr T in there and make it clear that Rampage Jackson has no place in...well anything. He's a rubbish fighter.

This started my intrigue, and my ever wandering mind began to investigate.  I assumed from the e-mail that this was the "new" Mr T - but was unsure of his origins so went to trusty IMDB to investigate.
Sure enough,  BA Baracus is being played by an ex-wrestler.  Cheesy or wot! Having said that, he does seem to fit the bill.
I then noticed this news article, which enticed me enough to find out more...
Which brought me to discover that some of the original A-Team cast were playing cameos in the new one. KOOL methinks - then goes to investigate which ones.

My favourite character was Howling Mad Murdoch, cause he made me laugh, and I had a crush on Face.
They both appear in the new movie - yippee!
I go through their profiles:  Dwight Schultz appears to be favouring being away from the cameras these days, preferring to specialise in voice overs - the list is almost endless!
Then check out my fav, Dirk Benedict - profile main picture doesn't make him look any older, would be keen to find out what he looks like now, surely he must have changed a little bit... checked his date of birth.

OMG!

He was born in 1945 - that makes him 65 - the same age as my DAD! eeeeewwwww! I had a crush on someone who was my dad's age! He is approaching retirement age!
I feel dirty!

Spot the Difference

Being a Fleet Manager and general subscriber to crap, I often get advertising e-mails.  Todays special little beauty was from NewFarmmachinery.com.au.

Normally I just delete them, but one of their feature articles on a new Bale Wrapper Range caught my eye.


I felt sure I have seen this design before


Yep that's right, I think they have appointed Hanna or Barbera as their vehicle designer.

A Question for Spammers

Are you still making money from your wicked ways?  Does investing in those awful autobots and phishing tools make it worth your while?

Surely the odds are these days that if your e-mails manage to fight past the firewalls and spam filters and junk folders, the best they get is a click of the delete button.

Are there still people out there that are stupid enough to click on your links for penis enlargements and hot lusty women?

Viral Poem

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
He said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.
I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue..
Then I turned around and
smacked the shit out of him...

Like his mother used to do.

P.s: The photo came from here: check out the rest, they are awesome!

Mixed Nuts

Man 'hasn't eaten, drunk in 70 years'
I love the idea in theory - never have to eat, and never have to go to the toilet...
but then... imagine not tasting a chocolate covered strawberry, or not having popcorn at the movies, or not cracking a cold beer at the footy. 
Most people's whole social lives are based on food or drink related activities... so surely even if you can live without food or drink, wouldn't you be giving up living?

It's about Time!

I really REALLY wish that this scheme had been around when my boy was only a baby.

The baby whisperers

They call it "Sleep School" - a fantastic way for the parent to learn the steps of controlled crying, with a sane minded  assistant there in the way of a nurse, a medical professional you can trust to be stern but fair, and to not have irrational, sleep deprived ideas clouding their judgement. 
The concept of controlled crying is a good one, but when most parents have the need for this method, they do not have the mental strength and energy to carry it through correctly.

Whoever brought this scheme into fruition deserves the nobel peace prize!

Is she gonna ask all the prospective buyers at the open day what religion they are? I'm sure she would, but I really hope that she won't be given the chance.
Oh, and she is selling up to move to UK.  I hope she moves to Bradford - she'd LOVE it there!

Bought some wraps today which say they are
  • Gluten Free
  • Wheat Free
  • Dairy Free
  • Yeast Free
  • Nut Free
  • Soy Free
They forgot to mention taste free.

They do have a handy little picture on the back showing you how to wrap them. I followed the instructions very carefully, making sure I did not overfill them.

They still broke and fell apart.

Quirky Tuesday

Had an argument "ahem" sorry discussion, about the recent flight delays caused by the Iceland Volcano eruption.
Aged Relative: "How come a Volcano in Iceland is stopping flight leaving here - no way the smoke has reached Australia"
Me: "It's landing at the other end in Europe that is causing the problems"
AR: "Well, how come it's causing problems, they can usually fly in fog unless it's REALLY bad"
Me: "Maybe it's REALLY bad....."
AR: "Didn't look really bad in those clips they just shown on the TV, anyway isn't that what they have Radar for?"

It is here that I gave up continuing the discussion, as this picture came to mind:


While "researching" this post (I.e checking MSN for a news link) I came across this AWESOME photo:

Those long taggy things they put on your clothes these days.

Their reasoning is that it helps the clothes stay on the hanger in the store.
Fine, but they don't always work, so I still end up kicking the item under the rack cause I can't be assed picking it up.
Plus if I buy it I have to remember to cut them out and run the risk of cutting holes in my top, or I forget and end up walking around with what looks like a shoelace or ribbon protruding from my arm pit.

Oh, and I couldn't find a pic which illustrated my annoyance (causing me further annoyance) but when I googled clothes tags the above pic came up so thought I would add for your enjoyment!

What song always makes you happy?
Accidently in Love - usually the Counting Crows Version, and Crazy chick by Charlotte Church (I don't usually admit to even knowing that song in public, but it's great belting it out in the car on a long drive)


If your life were a movie, what actor/actress would play you?
I'd like to think that the latest Oscar winner Sandra Bullock would be able to do me justice, although it would be a few hours in make up every day to make her look dumpy and dowdy. :)

If you could make any fictional character come to life, which would it be?
I fell in love with Stuart Townsend's portrayal of Dorian Gray in League - the "dastardly" deviant making me weak at the knees (every girl loves a bad boy) however I imagine the character could be quite a troubled, tortured soul. 
I must have a think for tortured souls, as the other person that sprung to mind is Armand from the Vampire Chronicles.  Not so much because of the portrayals in the movie adaptations, but from the Anne Rice novels themselves.  The book about him touched me in a way no other book had.  His sordid past, and the tortures he endured, really made me "understand" him.  Who wouldn't want to live forever?

Signs You´re Hungover ...


- You´d rather have a pencil driven through your retina than be exposed to sunlight.
- Trying to gain control of the situation, you continue to tell your room to "Stay still."
- Looking at yourself in the mirror induces the same reaction as chugging a glass of fresh paint.
- You´re convinced that the chirping birds are Satan´s pets.
- You set aside an entire morning to spend some quality time with your toilet.
- You replaced the traditional praying on your knees with the more feasible praying in a fetal position.
- All day long your motto is, "Never again."
- You could purchase a new bike just by recycling the bottles around your bed.
- Your natural response to "Good morning," is "Shut up!"

This just makes a joke out of the entire diet and lifestyle industry.  I have always said that WeightWatchers was a BIG con. (I proved so on this very blog years ago when I noticed that Weightwatchers "diet" sticky date pudding had more calories than a Sarah Lee one) - I changed their logo for them. (sorry, not a very good "photoshopper" am I!) or there is always a change of name that could go with it -

'Baby Gaga', 8, causes outrage with dance
I don't see any "outrageous" or "provocative" dancing.  What is more outrageous is that her mother thought her daughter was "talented" enough to go on a talent show.  The kid can't sing, and it's hardly dancing! She's prancing round like she's in her bedroom!  She should be condemned for letting the poor kid embarrass herself like that in public!

Is there anything you're superstitious about?
I do keep 3 chinese coins in my purse.  In fact this is my second lot, as one of the first ones broke.  My friend suggested I take them out as that was the reason I was "broke".  When they weren't there at all I never had money.  Ever since I got new ones my purse has always had money in it.

If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be?
You're supposed to say World Peace, End to World Hunger and Suffering, then the third one is for something silly like Eternal Youth, right?

From The Universe

Sometimes, Tracy, having more fun and being happier comes from looking for each in crazy, new places; instead of waiting for them to come from where you've found them before or where others are now finding them.

And I do mean crazy. Not just from the old standbys of travel, adventure, and romance, but from stretching, reaching, and growing. Accepting new responsibilities for your happiness, totally accepting others, and grasping even higher ideals. Philosophically taking yourself to places few have ever dared before.

This is actually not a dig at Star Wars fans - so no hate mail thank you.  It's those people who despite given a set of instructions, fail to use them, preferring to "use the force" or rather, they automatically assume that they know better and don't need to read instructions.
Of course, this means that they fuck it up!
