Saturday Morning Watchmen

I saw the movie WATCHMEN yesterday and I was totally blown away, that's how awesome it was - and I say that although I have read the graphic novel a couple of years ago. Go see it! In any case, here is a rather cool Saturday morning cartoon show animation of the Watchmen. Sort of like Scooby Doo meets the X-Men. very well done!

Founts of Youth Discovered in the Alps

A funny clip featuring the Angels of Mercy - lady scientists extraordinaire - on a mission in the Austrian Tirol.

There are cliches everywhere. You can't get away from them. Even Mars has its little green men and - after all - it's a good one hundred million kilometres away.

There are harmless cliches and lovable clichés as well as those of the unpleasant and tiresome kind - just ask any blonde. If we aren't careful, we shall end up as living cliches ourselves.

On no account should cliches be trusted without deep investigation. Some are accurate, there's no doubt about it, but there are also some that have long lost their validity. Clichés need to be checked and monitored.

The Angels of Mercy catalogue, evaluate and - where necessary - eliminate clichés wherever they encounter them. On their journeys across the globe they have seen and experienced much. They have become acquainted with unpunctual Germans, culinary educated Americans, Russians that have never drunk vodka and women who are fabulous at parking cars. Cliches are cliches.

The Austrian Tirol is their new project. Scientific studies show there is no other region in the world with such a high concentration of cliches per square mile. At the moment the Angels have their hands full, coming to terms with every single Tyrolean cliche and examining it thoroughly.

Barclaycard are challenging you to create a version of their waterslide film. All you need to do is create a waterslide, film it and post it to to enter the competition.

The film that gets the most votes on YouTube will win a once in a lifetime trip for two riding some of the world's top waterslides in Dubai, China, Brazil, Germany and the US. You'll also get a camera and a laptop to blog about your trip.

The waterslide film features a group of students creating a miniature version of the Barclaycard waterslide TV ad, using household items such as buckets, mops, empty water bottles, baked bean tins and even a set of legs from a shop mannequin! The students then launch 'Dangerous Dan' down the slide and across the road to the local off licence to pay for some goods. The film was shot in Shoreditch in London.

Bournemouth University Students Support Comic Relief 2009

As an ex-student of Bournemouth University, I put this here as a special favour to the Media School students and Sophie H. who asked via Twitter.

The viral is in aid of helping to raise awareness and funding for Comic Relief on the 13th March and we thought the best way to appeal to the human element would be to get lots of people involved to promote the red nose and all it stands for.
The money raised from Comic Relief goes toward helping people most in need around the world. The funds raised help people in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Caribbean and the U.K and fund initiatives to assist in mental health issues, domestic violence, HIV/Aids, trade, emergency response and many more.
Some of the products available to buy for just £1 to ‘do your bit’ are; red noses, badges, magnetic car noses, charms and a whoopee cushion.
Equally, if you would like to give money directly, there is donation page on the website and a just giving page that allows you to donate money for comic relief.
