Dr. Seuss Updated

Crispian Jago has been inspired by Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” and used it to pontificate on a forthcoming Papal visit. Don’t click on the link if you are easily offended. I enjoyed his puncturing of pomp a … Continue reading

Smile for Today

I find Jan Chipchase’s blog on his observations of cultures very interesting. Sometimes, it’s the simple things such as incongruence that does it.

Engineers vs Philosophers

Yes, it’s a cheap shot, but true, nonetheless…

Moral Guidance

I’m with the barmaid on this one. Moral guidance is not what I see in this pope.

Flame Warriors

Thanks to Jeff Atwood, over at Coding Horror, I’ve just learned about Mike Reed’s roster of Flame Warriors – a site that describes the various archetypes who populate the internet. I rather suspect that I’m Tiny Yapper – which one … Continue reading

Martin (the editor of the Lay Scientist) has a rant about the iPad. I thought that first photo was almost worthy of Marcel Duchamp.

Please Make It Stop…

Charlie Brooker has another cracking column in today’s Guardian, this time commenting on the eternal Apple versus Microsoft versus Apple evangelism. He draws our attention to what must be the worst video ever commissioned by Microsoft’s marketing machine. As one of the … Continue reading

What Kind of Humanist Are You?

Another of those online quizzes to pass the time; this one asks the question: What Kind of Humanist Are You?   Taking the quiz reveals that I’m a Hedonistic Humanist, which is probably pretty accurate; I note that the description ends … Continue reading

Apophatic Theology

This week’s Jesus and Mo is excellent. Apophatic Theology is promoted by Karen Armstrong’s latest book: The Case for God. While some reviews of the book have been kind (not to say fawning), I suspect that the most accurate review … Continue reading

Eau de Raison…

If it was an actual product, I’d almost be tempted to buy a bottle, just to try it… But, as Mrs Lovett and Sweeney might say, it’s just (taking the) piss with ink…

The Apocalypse Approaches

I rather wish it would be this sort of apocalypse, but somehow I doubt it.

Here’s some good news at least: Mr. Deity has returned with a third series. Here’s episode 1: Mr. Deity and the Virgin…

Out Of The Mouths Of Babes And Sucklings…

A rather jolly video produced by a bunch of French teens. I usually try and present reasoned arguments to homophobes, but of course with them it’s just like water off a duck’s back, so I usually end up getting incensed. How … Continue reading

A Dim-lit Shot of Dangling Balls

Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart was, for me, one of the defining videos of the 1980s. Therefore, this literal reading of the video had me in stitches:

Welcome To Our Titted Overlords

Charlie Brooker is on fine form this week. He may not be entirely serious, but he does have a point. The wetware operating system that runs in the brain of the male variant of Homo sapiens is long overdue for … Continue reading

It’s A Cultural Thing…

NonStampCollector imagines how the meeting between God and his angels went when they discussed the Jesus project… Brilliant.       I must admit, I didn’t realise that God and his angels were Australian. Well, you live and learn, don’t … Continue reading
