My Week On The Internet – 29/08/10

Standard

Yikes! That week shot by fast. That’s probably because the earth is spinning faster and faster thanks to the Large Hadron Collider, one day the earth will spin so fast we’ll all come flying off and shoot into space. No, wait. It’s because I last did this only 6 days ago rather than a week (at the time of writing this), my mistake, panic over everyone. So anyway, here is what has been my internet candy for the last seven days but before we do anything….

… have you seen Cee-Lo’s ‘Fuck You’ song yet? No? Go look then.

Seen it? Good, let’s move on.

Shuffler.fm - It's gurt lush.

If you like sniffing out for new music online then Shuffler.fm is a free service that may be of use to you. From it’s simple to use homescreen you can pick a music genre and Shuffler.fm will randomly bounce around numerous blogs streaming a random track in that genre for you. It’s good stuff indeed, worth a look.

The soon to be closed Eastenders retirement home.

The Bill is leaving our screens forever, who knows where our ex-Eastenders will go now? Maybe some work in a Crimewatch reconstruction, or playing a dead body in Holby, anything as long as it isn’t Hollyoaks. I can’t remember the last time I saw The Bill but that doesn’t stop this article from Daniel Maier being a hilarious read.

…Bid farewell to one of telly’s great supporting-artist gigs. The duty solicitor was always the most entertaining player in the doubles match that was The Bill‘s suspect interview. On one side, two exasperated detectives. Facing them, the suspect, all gold teeth and contempt. And next to him someone in a suit, silently gurning their face off. Ironically, the accused would be the one repeatedly saying “no comment”, when the poor extra playing the solicitor was the only one in the room contractually obliged not to speak.

You can find the whole article here.

Adam & Joe on 6Music, the iPlayer, Doctor Who and Sherlock are just some of the many reason’s why I love the BBC. Having children also means that I get to legitimately watch the cool stuff they have on CBeebies like Charlie and Lola. This week the ‘very much worth following’  Twitterite @Scriblit created a wonderful mashup of ‘Sherlock’ and ‘Charlie & Lola’, the results are so good they make the original shows seem practically symbiotic.

A list of links to the series of these brilliant pictures can be found here or if you’re on Twitter via the hashtag #eversocleverish.

Speaking of which, Twitter has been golden this week. I love it when people on Twitter are reacting to a real life event, recent events in the news has supplied some comedy gold in the form of a couple of new Twitter accounts in the form of @CatBinLady and @Chilean_Miner. On the subject of great Twitter accounts, Heckler Spray have put together a list of ‘The Most Insane Celebrities on Twitter‘. There are some solid cases on there, Kanye West, William Shatner, it’s all good stuff. Originally missing from the list (but now included possibly thanks to my tip-off) is the batshit insane rapper 50 Cent. Batshit insane? How so? I’ll show you…..

Holy shit! I still can’t believe it myself. Fiddy is chock full of choice tweets, I can’t help but repeatedly re-tweet his posts. Whether it’s the recession, expression of the inner soul or simply pointing out the frustrations of good spelling, Fiddy has all the bases covered in his own unique way.

Oh Fiddy, you daft rascal you. Keep it up old chap.

And that’s the best bit’s of the last seven days of my internet wanderings.  Just one last thing, and it’s vaguely nerdy I’m afraid. Between having a family and two jobs, maintaining my website and padding out this blog with mundane brain dumps I also like to do a bit of video gaming. The big Xbox 360 game out in the next few weeks is Halo : Reach and amongst all the fanboy baiting hype this trailer has emerged that very much tickled me. I like that it sounds vaguely like Joe Cornish singing the vocals.

Right, I’m off. See you next time…..

Fucks sake Fiddy, you crazy motherfucker you.
