Ahahahahah. Just look.
I’m becoming a fan of Charlie Brooker – he wrote Dead Set, the ‘Big Brother house is the only refuge from the living dead’ TV series, and works himself into indignant hilarity every week in the Guardian:

New Star Trek trailer.
In celebration of me figuring out how to embed small youtube videos (it’s actually really easy, how I LAUGHED!), here’s a clip from Summer Heights High. It’s created by Aussie Chris Lilley, the guy behind We Can Be Heroes: Finding the Australian Of The Year. Enjoy.
I’m not that into cars. Hey, I’m on my second Nissan Primera. But no-one with a passing interest in the really fucking wicked couldn’t not fall in lust with the Holden GTR-X concept. Behold.

I’m expecting to be a more regular contributor to teh internets soon.
In the meantime, here’s The Muppets’ three greatest singers together at last.
As you were.
