Entertainment stuff from the week 1-7/7/13

Hi Nakedarklings!

Today marks 10 years of Permission To Land :) :)

In 2003, the world had its first chance to become familiar with The Darkness - its powerful guitar sounds, its moving melodies and its seering vocals, provided by the 'truth larynx' of Justin Hawkins.

I have a YouTube playlist of them, which is here and available for your perusal:

Give me a 'd'... give me an 'arknessforever' :D

I suppose, being a Rationalist, i would have to concede that the NHS, which celebrated its 65th anniversary two days ago, should receive greater acclaim.

It is the best healthcare service in the world, after all. And no, America, yours is nowhere near as good. With the NHS, you don't have to be rich to get treatment.

Happy Birthday NHS!

Series 59 of ISIHAC is here! Episode 1 is on iPlayer, if you can hear it:

If you want to hear more zany humour from Graeme, Barry and some others who also appear on Clue, then Series 2 of Hamish and Dougal has been airing recently:

A curious observation that i made, this week, regards an advert i saw for the UK holiday camp company 'Butlins' (Click the link to see the ad)

Secondarily-curiously, the advert that they uploaded to YouTube appears to have been monetarized which means... you have to watch someone else's advert before you can watch theirs #-S

The observation of curiousness that i made is not that the smallprint states "Bognor Regis resort shown" even when it's an animation; oh no no...

It's the music.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Tap - it's The Trololo Song - we all know that. We were there. We heard the song; we sang along; we got a t-shirt with the lyrics on it.

But wait!

The actual name of that song is... and please bear in mind that this song is being employed by a holiday camp that you deliberately leave home in order to enjoy...

'I'm So Glad To Finally Be Back Home' LOL

Presumably, Butlins is either unaware that the song is called this; or they are aware but thought no-one would notice.

Well i did, Butlins! I did.

So shove that in your trololouge and smoke it!!


On the subject of recreation, here's a heads-up for you:

Nude Recreation Week starts tomorrow!

So if you like to get your gongs out and wave them in the breeze... or just not bother to get dressed sometimes... you now have an excuse :-D

And if you like to get your fuzz hot while tanning in the summer sunshine, then this is your chance :-)

...and that neatly/unkemptly segues into this memory of Hot Fuzz :o)

...and to the latest in the Shaun-Fuzz-End trilogy.

'The World's End Viral Video - Newton Haven (2013)'

A clip from The Graham Norton Show containing an exclusive ‘The World’s End’ clip

And here are some posters for the film:

------------------------------------------------------ contemporary stuff

CCPGrey has another video to make your head hurt:

'The European Union Explained'

''Born Free' Brian May Kerry Ellis Venue Cymru Llandudno 29 06 13'

''Can't Help Falling In Love' Brian May Kerry Ellis Venue Cymru Llandudno 29 06 13'

'Chernobyl exclusion zone wildlife: Przewalski's horses, june 2013'
Reintroduced in 1998, this species of wild horse has been maintaining itself around the minimally-irradiating modern lands of Chernobyl... until poachers caused thier populations to turn downward in recent years. Man is more dangerous than radiation!

'GOLDEN SHOW - Street Magic'

What did the Irish media just call Bieber?!
I can't believe they said that!
His skin's far too smooth and hairless to be likened to a scrotum...

This is how daytime TV goes, in the UK :-D
That's Katie Hopkins, btw - she withdrew from season three of 'The Apprentice' over money for breeding - and hopes to be a Conservative Party MP one day.
She seems adequately qualified [smug grin]

------------------------------------------------------ of the weeks

Word Of The Week: banquette -- a small footpath, on the inside of a wall or rampart; or an upholstered bench or footbridge

Headline Of The Week: 'Man Stumbles Upon Reptile Near Sewer, Offers Gator Aid'

Superhero Of The Week: River-Path-Indecent-Exposure-Man

Expression Of The Week: "just like downtown" -- pertaining to an event that's gone well, as planned; like life downtown, in a city; which city isn't specifically known

Etymology Of The Week: disappointed -- from 'disappoint' meaning 'to lose an appointment' (a position of office) and through the later meaning of 'disappoint' - to fail to keep an appointment'; hence why the opposite of the modern 'disappointed' is not 'appointed'

Quote Of The Week: "Auschwitz begins whenever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks; "they are only animals"." - Theodor Adorno

Fact Of The Week: Denmark has an award called the Order Of The Elephant, which is almost-exclusively bestowed on 'royals' or Heads of State; the design comes from the badge of the religious confraternity called the Fellowship of the Mother of God

------------------------------------------------------ non-contemporary stuff

'What R U having?'
They look so happy. It's two daughters in one, guys; two daughters in one :D

On marriage and oranges:

Dogs that look like their owners, dressed up to look even more like their owners:

How to kiss - a brief guide:

Joke's on you - energy is always conserved!

The 'Hell's Kitchen' hall of fame :-D

I've been catching up on Myles Power's Science videos on YouTube. Here are some pretty things he's uploaded:

'American Animals with Sally Le Page'

'American National Parks'

There is a lot more scientific stuff, of course. Here's his channel URL:

Catching up on puns since the start of April:

What make-up sex looks like:

Speed dating for numbers:

Traditional gender rolls. They're going to be in tatters when i'm done with them!

What is artificial light made of?

Rather macabre humour:

Fetch me an 'acne carriage...

Finnish hymn!

'So Many Gnomials'

This pun's made me all key-sy {queasy}

Do you think these guys'll let me in if i wear swede shoes?

My undies-closed secrets are the ones you really want to see ;-)

'Now I'm Sad AND Hungry'

I'm sure there's a joke about plugs, in here, somewhere... maybe i can't find it because i pushed it in too far

So i put it in reverse, your honour, pushed a little hard on the pedal, and then they all went down like...

Tripping on acid. Best done barefoot. Apparently.

Neil before me!!!

If you want a thing done well... leave it in the microwave overnight :-P

This shit's got legs on it! :-P

What's the cube root of tree? Well, this is:

Easy come, easy go; little high, little low; any way the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me; to me...

Where are Barney, McGrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grubb, though? Oh yeah - they're atheists :o)

I've got a feeling; all these years I've been wandering around; wondering how come nobody told me; all that I was looking for was somebody; who looked like... you??? I've got a feeling...
