Fun: Impressive Photos

May 30th, 2003

Ant DaisyWhilst liking photography in all its forms and being a regular reader of the SenstiveLight photoblog (amongst others), there’s still a few occasions where I just got wow when looking at a photo.

Sensiti’s image for today’s Theme Thursday is quite impressive, but I think it’s been beaten hands down by the Ant Daisy image I found via Promoguy: he sums it up quite nicely with the comment “Im-pressive!” and it most certainly is!.

Snippet: Double Points on Guess That Movie

May 30th, 2003

Guess That Movie 58Wow! Nobody managed to guess the current Guess That Movie image so for the next 48 hours I’m going to be awarding a massive 200 points to the first person to correctly recognise the screenshot.

It is NOT from:

  • Mad Max Beyond The Thunderdrome (or any of the Mad Max series)
  • Poltergeist (or any of its sequels)
  • Small Soldiers
  • Osmosis Jones (I’ve never heard of this film anyway!)
  • Spy Kids 2 (it’s not Spy Kids 1 either)

Ok: additional clues:

  • It’s a spin off of a TV series
  • There is some allegedly Latin spoken in this movie, but it isn’t real Latin
  • Liza Minelli, Brooke Shields, Barbra Streisand and Winona Ryder were NOT in this movie
  • The scene in the movie where this screen shot was taken from doesn’t really “look like” the rest of the movie

Have fun and have a guess!

Poll: Do you know MT-Do?

Every day, your knowledge and understanding increases. In some respects MT-Do is becoming Zen to you, but from time to time, you slip and leave the conscious as just that.

Take the MT-Do test

Snippet: Make Mental Note

May 27th, 2003

Note to self: Read Homer’s Odyssey (I’ve always wondered where the story of the wooden horse of Troy and the children’s TV series Ulysses originated) and then Macbeth and Hamlet.

TV: Wow! Europe hates us

May 24th, 2003

EurovisionFirst of all, congratulations go to Turkey for winning the 2003 Eurovision contest with Sertab Erener’s “Everyway that I can” (even though it reminded me a lot of Shakira’s “Whenever, Whereever”).

However, I’ve found out that Europe must hate us, because our entry of Jemini’s “Cry Baby” left Eurovision with a great big fat zero – zilch – none – “nil points”. That’s right: for the first time in the 46 years, the UK failed to gather a single point. I’m actually shocked as I didn’t think our song was that bad!
