Find Music by Humming – it really works! #midomi

We are sitting on the sofa at home at the moment discussing our holiday plans for the year and I got a song in my head that I started humming. Remembering the adverts on TV where you hold your phone up to a speaker and it tells you the song, I thought there must be one that you can hum to and it’ll find the song. So I did a quick google and found Midomi, I hummed the song (and I can’t really sing or even hum very well) and sure enough…it found the exact song, 2 results came back … Continue reading

What a line up – and now Ivana Trump! Celebrity Big Brother

I’ve not watched much Celebrity Big Brother this time around, as usual it’s become extremely over the top and feels almost scripted (as in the housemates, obviously BB has a script!) One thing they have done this time around though is actually get a couple of people who can actually be classed as celebrities. I know, I know, they’re not switch on the TV and they’ll be on a TV show or film right now, but they’re people who’s names you recognise, I think most notably (until this weekend) was Basshunter, even people who find his music terrible know the … Continue reading

Snowy Britain – NASA Terra image

NASA uploaded an image today of Great Britain from space as of 11:50 UTC today, it’s a truly remarkable picture showing just how much it has snowed here. For anyone not from the UK, snow like this has not hit Britain for over 30 years, hence all the hoo-haa about. It looks beautiful though, although weirdly sci-fi in nature. I must admit, as cold as I am on my way to work on the morning, I still love the fact everything is white, and it’s that perfect powder snow too, if I lived near mountains, it would be great for … Continue reading

Costa Coffee Leeds – Unhelpful and Very Dirty/Unhygienic

Yesterday, we went to Leeds to do some shopping in preparation of our upcoming big day (yes, getting married soon!) At lunch time we decided to go get some food and a drink, we wanted to go to Starbucks but both the Border’s Starbucks and the actual Starbucks shop on the street were packed (20+ queues.) So we decided on Costa Coffee, 93-97 Albion Street (near Harvey Nichols) for our mid-day drink and snack…I wish we had queued for Starbucks. It got to my time to order, so I ordered us a Gingerbread Latte, Hazelnut (or some nut) Latte, 2 … Continue reading

Muppets do Bohemian Rhapsody (Youtube 1080p)

I love the Muppets, always have, always will. So I was delighted to find this on Youtube. It’s Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody re-imagined by the muppets. Not sure if it’s actually new, but the 1080p quality certainly is new and it is pretty stunning to watch it stream. Enjoy!

lolcatz – fill in the gap

As I’m currently lacking in things to post, here’s a cat doing the robot… Hopefully I’ll actually come up with something slightly more substantial in a day or two!

Thermal image of the human body doing a “faux pas”

What can only be described as a human function, this thermal image at first glance looks like something from space, captured by a telescope….then you realise it’s just a man’s butt while farting and your world comes crumbling down.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town for Christmas Number One 2009! (not X-Factor)

It’s getting close to Christmas 2009 and once again it looks like X-Factor is going to be the christmas number one, regardless of what else comes up. I’m not sure about you but I feel it’s time for a traditional christmas song again, no more random song for christmas, it’s time for a real christmas song, and while there are plenty of options, I feel Santa Claus is Coming to Town by Bruce Springsteen has real potential, it embodies all that christmas has to offer. It’s certainly “christmasy” (Santa Claus, come on!) and it’s a happy song, it just embodies … Continue reading
