OK so I’m off to France in the next hour, so the Thursday five is coming to you a day early so I can relax with a Kronenbourg and a bagel and not worry about providing you with awesome content. Narrowly missing out on my cool list this week; The GQ Watch Exhibition at the Royal Exchange. It would have been a real treat to tell you all about the cool watches handpicked by GQ after receiving the invite last week. Sadly there was a mix up with the dates/invites/names. These things happen, to me …. alot. However, I didn’t want to short change you readers so I took a picture of the roof (above) before being told in no uncertain terms, though in a cordial and affable manner, to fuck off.
DARTH VADAR PICKS UP LITTER
Throughout the day, many drivers honked, waved or even stopped by to take a picture. He said it’s a fun way to bring awareness to the environment. “I like to get out here and dress up because it makes people smile driving by,” Wakey said.”The lack of cleanliness disrupts me.” DISRUPTS? That’s disturbs me, surely? Either way the lad is doing the Lords work. Full story can be found at Geekologie.
THE LENNON REPORT
As a lover of anything and everything Beatles, this truly excites me. The film promises to be as good as The Killing of John Lennon, the film that depicted the movements of Mark Chapman leading up to him shooting John Lennon. Did you know that Mark Chapman tried to commit suicide years earlier by carbon monoxide poisoning. That was until some guy who was randomly taking a stroll, pulled him out of his car that had a hose pipe running from the exhaust and saved his life. Nice one ass-wipe. Pffft do-gooders.
GO DOG GO FETCH MACHINE
So we have zero interest in burning calories anymore. This automatic ball launcher for dogs is proof of that. Check out this vid and also notice in the opening five seconds, the dog in the background who can’t be arsed to play fetch, but is more interested in marking its territory.
MAN SURVIVES BEAR ATTACK
Hats off to this fella. Comes out from a scrum with a bear and records a video of himself all beat up with bits hanging off him. ‘Internal organs are good, eyes are good, legs are good.‘ I like this guy, got some grit. I’d be phoning Mum telling her Tiny Tim won’t be coming home this Christmas.
