Urn Baby Urn.

Afternoon. I usually try and provide you with fun, happy, enjoyable plinx. However, today's one is harrowing and unpleasant but darkly comic. Fairly warned be ye.

It's a product made by a company called 'Cremation Solutions'. Specifically, a new type of urn for people who need a less subtle reminder of their deceased relative/friend.

To say any more would ruin it. See for yourself. The Personal Urn.

Make Like A Banana,

Hello, I had a game lined up for you today, then just as I was about to come here and post it, I had a quick look at (a splendid repository of games. Highly recommended) and I saw that there is now a sequel to one of my favourite online flash games: The previously plinked 'Splitter'. So now I'm going to rush this one so I can get back to playing it!

The rules are the same as the first one so check Here if you need to know what's going on.

Go play Splitter 2 and stop bothering me!

Chirpy Burpy Cheap Sheep.

Well, I'm back from Latitude. Glad to have a real bed and easier access to tea but still wish it had gone on a bit longer. Anyway, I had a great time and there's always next year.

I've decided to share with you something I saw while I was there. I saw it by accident, in the film and music tent while I was waiting to see a lecture on Watchmen by Jeffrey Lewis. I know, I'm so rock & roll. (The lecture never happened in the end because JL broke down on the way to the festival, grumble grumble). But I digress, what I DID end up seeing was a short film called 'Peter & Ben' about a man... and his sheep. Stop sniggering at the back there, it was actually really nice. Both Peter and Ben have been removed from their usual societies and have bonded as a result. It's quite moving and occasionally hilarious.

Anyway, judge for yourself:

Howdy doody. I am off to Latitude Festival tomorrow (squeeeee!) so I won't be here to keep you entertained for a while. I know you must be inconsolable, but it will be ok! I have a triple-bill of plinx to tide you over until my triumphant return.

I'm supposed to be packing right now so let's crack on shall we?

First, the most time consuming of the trio, it's a physics game! I like 'em, what can I say. This one is called 'Demolition City' and it is all about planting explosives in the correct places to bring down a building. It's fun and you can play it Here.

Next (oh yes, no mucking about today) is a rather eye-opening photoset which shows how newspapers, magazines, brochures, etc edit photos to either artificially insert or remove black people. It's quite shocking how flagrantly they do this and also how badly implemented it is! Case in point:

If you can't see what is wrong here or you'd just like to see some more examples, check out the Whole Set.

Last of all, this may seem like a strange one to include as it is a video about how to peel a banana. Anyone who knows me will know I don't eat bananas. Although it is a fun word to type! Banana. Hee! Ahem, anyway. But yeah, it turns out you've been peeling them wrong all this time. You dope! Check it out:

Youtube Link.

Enlightening! Anyway, have fun kids. I'll see you when I get back. Byeeeeee.

*waves* Hi. Sometimes the best ideas are the simplest. Sometimes they're only good ideas if you have the talent to back them up. This is the latter.

In theory, ANYONE could take the Guardian's weekend supplement and doodle on it with a black marker. But not everyone could make it consistently funny. I have found someone who can. Proof follows:

and one more for luck

Tee-hee! The rest can be found here: The Annotated Weekender.

Warriors. Come Out To Play.

Hello. Did you watch 'You Have Been Watching' on channel 4 at 10pm on tuesday? No? Well more fool you then, because it was brilliant. It's Charlie Brooker's new show. Watch this week's on channel 4 catch up online then tune in next week.

ANYWAY, the reason I'm bringing this up is because it featured an unbelievable american programme called 'Deadliest Warrior' which pits two famous warriors (ninjas, pirates, vikings, cowboys) against each other and tries to work out who would win by studying tactics, attitude and weapons etc. Then they mock up what the fight would be like.

Like I say, unbelievable!

Anyway, I was looking the show up online and found this quiz. Which deadly warrior are you?
I know what I am!

I'll probably stick some videos from the show in here at some point because it really is a good watch!

Hey You, Look Here!

If your eyes have alighted on this sentence, even for a second; Stop what you're doing and watch this.

Frankly, it's amazing. A collaborative effort featuring dozens of people and their webcams. It uses so many clever tricks, it'll make your head spin.

Ostensibly a music video, this is one of the greatest videos I have seen in ages. Enough blurb, just watch:

Bloody Hell.

Dance Your Cares Away.

So today's game *BOOM* as I say, today's game is a bit *BOOM* a bit dis*BOOM* it's a bit distracting! No matter what else you may be trying to do, you keep getting drawn back for one more go at blowing up the weird smiley guys. *BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM*

Ahem. Right, The game is Fragger. The aim of said game is to blow up all the bad guys with your collection of grenades. The less grenades you use, the more points you score. It's really a meaningful display of the importance of managing your dwindling resources DISGUISED as an excuse to blow up loads of dudes... *BOOM*

Anyway, s'fun! Go play Fragger.

Hee Hee Hebrew.

Hmm, not much I can say about this one. You'll know whether you want to click it as soon as I tell you the URL. Click or don't click. Ball is in your court now, schmucks.

Thanks to Graham Linehan's Twitter for the link.
