We've all seen some very clever Shockwave and Flash animations. Heck, it seems no site is complete without a high-bandwidth browser-crushing Flash version as well as a pedestrian text-only equivalent (or perhaps you're just SOL if you don't have broadband at home).

Anyway, I am declaring the who-can-build-the-best-Flash/Shockwave-enabled doodad wars over. JJ1 Club won with some jaw-dropping Shockwave entries, of which this is a prime example.

The Inland Revenue appears to be diddling itself out of taxes so it can pay rent on it's own buildings. Sounds like something out of Yes, Minister.
God's PO'd about his alleged spokespeople, so he's launching an ad campaign of his own. I can't wait until he starts doing the chat show circuit.

Ever wondered what are the 300 most commonly used words in the English language? Wonder no more. Actually, that list doesn't include any of the words I use most commonly, but fear not, for they too can be found online, over here. And while we're (I'm) on the topic, check out this happy horseshit. Follow the instructions literally and some of the results are hilarious. Well, if you were really stoned they might be.

Think that Operation Enduring Freedom is a silly-ass name. Try:

  • Operation Destructive Sweet Baby Jesus

  • Operation Spewing Virgin

  • Operation Narcoleptic Cleric

These and more can be found here.
I have regaled as many members of this group who will listen (or at least stay still long enough) with my ravings about the book The Fermata by Nicholson Baker.

Now, it seems, there might be a film version. It'll have to be a Vivid Video release. The mind boggles - this is a book that forever changed the way I look at women at public gatherings.

To follow up on Dave's post from a week ago it seems that the Harry Potter Nimbus 2000 toy has found an unexpected audience. Several unexpected audiences in fact.
Most of this does come from Japan, but that's part
of what makes it so endearing.

OK, OK, Macs are cool but what about gamers?

And this isn't even from Japan.

And look! You can now buy Ellen Feiss swag!
I love Apple and their "switch" ad campaign. But who I really love is Ellen Feiss. Check it out - this chick is soooo stoned. Here's a transcript:

"I was writing a paper on the PC ... and it was like blee-bleep blee-blee-blee-bleep, and then ... like ... half of my paper was gone ..... (long pause) ... and I was like (longer pause) .... hunh? ... it devoured (barely suppressed giggle) my paper ... it was (a) really good paper .. and then I had to write it again ... and I had to do it fast so it wasn't as good .. it's kind of (really long pause) ... a bummer. I'm Ellen Feiss and I'm a student"
