More cuteness from teh aminals.

I realise I haven't blogged lately, but I don't really have anything of interest to say right now.
In the meantime, here's an adorable silent video of a tortoise chasing a tomato.

All hail the mighty 'stache!

More YouTube goodness, here emodied (or embedded) in the form of a fantastic ukelele tribute to the most manly of facial hair arrangements, the mighty moustache.

Also, I hate being sick and cooped up at home. It's partly due to the weather, partly due to the strange lumps in my neck. IT'S NOT A TUMOR.

The Devil

I can't really think of anything to blog about today, so instead, enjoy this video of PJ Harvey singing "The Devil" (off her incredible album White Chalk) live on a Danish television programme.

I love how the metronome carries an ominous beat throughout, and I totally dig the wicked piano and effects on her vocals.

Superheroes IRL

The picture above is of real-life "superhero" Master Legend, of Orlando, and his ex-sidekick Ace. It links to an incredible Rolling Stone article about the life of Master Legend, who rolls around in his beat up Battle Truck, firing plastic Easter eggs filled with rocksalt out of a Right Guard-powered aerosol launcher at villains and criminals in the mean streets of central Florida.

I'm not making this up. Google "superhero network" and you'll find a plethora of message boards and online communities of costumed vigilantes, trying to make their respective neighbourhoods just a bit safer.

The story keeps a nice balance between outside reality and Master Legend's slight nuttiness, but it's a heart-warming tale nonetheless, and I sincerely wish ML all the best of luck in his crime fighting.

Now where did I put my Lone Ranger mask...?
