Tripod! How have I never heard of them? Has everyone else heard of them? Someone somewhere that I don't really know posted a link to one of their vids, and it was funny enough that I looked up some more, and now my tummy hurts from laughing and my mouth hurts from smiling and I have to go to bed (not cos of them but cos it's half midnight and I have work tomorrow... *g*), but I'm so glad lj's back up so that I can post these and not lose them! For instance...

This is the one that started pulling me in - Kempt


But they just get better... *g* )

So much for an early night...

This is probably ancient, but I've just come across it. Hee.

Sometimes adverts are just very clever and worth watching... *g*

On my way to NT volunteering this morning, before a full day's work this afternoon and then getting ready for tomorrow's Job 2.2 all-day online meeting, I suddenly realised that last weekend, which I messed up by working in, were the last days I'd have off for about six weeks - ack! I'm hoping to at least have some quieter days in there, I must catch up on lj, and I'm desperate to escape to a beach for just a few hours, but in the meantime I found this via the dread fb. There's always books. Phew!



How brilliant and happy-making is that? *vbg*

*wanders off back to work*...

There needs to be much more of this sort of thing around - so very beautifully shot, such a very beautiful boy, and you've gotta love someone so competent and in control of his body...
...plus as someone elsewhere suggested, there's a vague flavour of Jackdaw about him... *g*

I spent years when I was a kid, wishing I could see even a picture of the aurora borealis (or australis, for that matter... *g*) And now there's this - set to music, even! Ain't the future grand?

I miss going out at night and looking up to see this... *sighs* Maybe I should move to the Shetlands... *g*

The Isle of Man does Parkour - and not only is this lad skilled, but the film is gorgeously shot and it looks like he edited it himself. Look at what he does on the Laxey Wheel! And oh, the view over Douglas Harbour...



I think I was looking for weather, and I found this instead - gotta love it when kids are creative and competent!

...then even I'm pretty seriously old...

From ancient times people suspected that human activity could change the climate. For example, in the 19th century many Americans believed that cutting down forests brought more rainfall to a region.

Ah, the ancient times of the 1800s... I wouldn't mind, but he's a scientist, and was Director of a reasonably big institute until he retired, for all it looks like he's written more popular work than peer-reviewed. God knows how he'd describe Clovis culture, or... so how does he view "ancient Greece"?!

Ancient times... *headdesk*

ETA - this! This is what it reminds me of!


*hugs Eddie*

Oh, the things I miss - how incredible is this?!



(Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] ariss_tenoh, on whose lj I saw it - I just had to show anyone else who might not have seen it!)

And here's what the Guardian has to say - oh, and maybe she's won more recently than that - I must go and watch those too!

I should definitely be in bed. Or at least doing something useful. But... I don't think I'd seen these before... *g*





And planes!

So I was totally going to write a silly post today, do some rambling, do some Pros-ing, but... I just watched Blackadder Goes Forth again - the whole series, because it was on sale for silly price and I felt like being cheered up earlier today, but...

Isn't it just one of the saddest shows about WWI ever? I mean, obviously not for 5/6 of the eps, but that last...thirty seconds - doesn't it just get you every time? Even when you've seen it a billion times, showed it to rooms full of teenagers, and know it backwards?

Oh, and I was looking for clips, and just read (which I think I did know...) that it was voted one of the greatest British television moments ever. Which is about right...

Here's a youtube of the start of the ep for anyone who's not seen it (they're quite old now - 1989!) - I expect it links to the rest... I mean, really you should watch all six eps to meet the characters, but...
