Switched on the laptop Friday and fired up the old Google machine to be confronted with a freaky version of the Google logo. After I was done scratching my head I only had one question, was this Google’s tribute to the Human Centipede? The logo was actually a tribute to artist Keith Haring, but all [...]

First up, I should point out that I do not recommend doing a Google search for the term “Adult Bib”. Nothing good will come of it… unless that’s the sort of thing that floats your boat. In case you curious according to Google’s AdWords tool, placing AdWords for the term ‘Adult Bibs” will cost you [...]

It’s Thursday, it’s hot, I’m tired, yet I’ve still managed to find a handful of things to amuse me on a Thursday evening. It’s funny where surfing the internet can lead you. Consider this a geeked out version of six degrees of separation.

Australian TV ratings juggernaut Masterchef has drawn to a close and the Australian public is suffering fine food withdrawal not seen since McDonalds discontinued their McOz burger. Personally, I’m quite happy the show has finished, six nights a week of pretentious posturing over food is more than I can handle. For a lot of people [...]

Stone Temple Pilots would have to be one of the most under rated bands of the past 20 years. They’ve never quite received the kudos that I think they deserve. When they split in 2003 I was more than a little miffed. I felt like they were a band that still had plenty of good [...]

I sat down to watch Kick-Ass on the weekend with high expectations. The movie has been picking up rave reviews all over the place, it’s based on a comic, and has ‘super hero’ themes – why wouldn’t I have high expectations? Kick-Ass tells the story of Dave Lizewski, a teenage who one day decides that [...]

Zombie movies. Is there, or will there ever be, a greater genre? Any answer other than no is incorrect. On the weekend, I watched a zombie movie that has forced me to re-assess my top 5 zombie movies of all time. Hence this list. This list may be contentious, heck it caused me some inner [...]
