So, I borrowed a video camera.

But it’s not just any video camera, it’s miniature, and shock proof. I won’t bore you with the technical specs, you can read all about it here.

Naturally, the reason I wanted to borrow it was to get some footage of mountain biking, which I did:

It’s not great (but at £70, I didn’t expect broadcast quality), and it’s quite weird how it seems to flatten everything off (some of the drops on the video are actually quite large but look tiny), but it’s a start. I think I need to work on mounting it better, and trying to move my head less. I also need to do it when there’s a bit more daylight around, but since it’s 32+ celcius (and humid) during the day here at the moment, that’ll have to wait.

An Ostrich egg in a microwave.

Can’t really say much more about this. It’s an Ostrich egg in a microwave, with spectacular results.

Another brilliant advert.

This time for toilet paper. Anyone who manages to spot every euphemism wins my eternal adulation.

Yet another World Cup headbutt.

I’m almost speechless that someone as talented as Zinedine Zidane could do something so utterly stupid.

I’m just going to have to get this out of my system.

I’ve got a short list of shows I’m going to post, starting with He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

I’m quite enjoying tracking these down, so you can expect quite a few more 80’s kiddie’s cartoon title sequences over the next few days. I’ll do requests as well, so long as I remember the shows myself.

More retro-cartoon-based-coolness…

Ulysses 31 was one of my favourite programs when I was a kid, and finding this the other day (after a lengthy discussion about kid’s TV in the pub on my birthday) brought back loads of memories.
