Chaos

… lies in Belgium, finally I found some scientific proof. When I checked out the Twitter Grader page for Belgium the other day, this is what I saw, check out n.4 in the list.

The Kaiser Mix

kaisermixbanner1 I recently got into Blip.fm quite a bit, it’s an interesting way to get some good music while at work for instance. My buddy Marcus got into it even a lot more and he’s now setting something up to take this Twitter for music just a bit further.

On October 9th he’s going to be live blipping from a bar in Munich. This means The Kaiser and the people he follows will be mixing it up that night in Munich and for all people (like me) that can’t be there that night, we can follow it live on Blip.fm (of course) but also on a live stream that is set up for this. Check it all out here – bring it on Kaiser!

PS: Just don’t let Marcus touch any of them drinks, that looks like a really bad idea.

PS 2: Blip.fm – are you listening? Maybe a good idea to show up, and blip some buzz around.

It didn’t say anything about no ad people were injured during the making of this movie so I hope everyone got out alright :)

Geek pranks

In times when every single blog around the globe feels the need to think of some joke to post on April Fools Day, there was actually only one post that made me smile today. Lifehacker Gina Trapani posted a top 10 of harmless geek pranks and they look like pretty good office fun indeed.

Whether you install the Blue Screen Of Death screensaver on a colleague’s pc, replace the desktop with a fake version or rather customize the printer’s console message this is a post you should bookmark for whenever you’re up for some geek fun.

Surface spoof

During the pre-conference we had at MIX08 there was also a presentation from one of the guys that works on the Surface team. To give an introduction of the Surface for those who wouldn’t have seen it he showed a video about it. The funny thing though was that he didn’t show the original video, but a spoof made by SarcasticGamer.com. Apparantly it’s around for a while but I hadn’t seen it before. Kudos to the guys who created it and also to the Surface team for using it in their own presentation!

Ken touched this

Berlitz did it again and I hadn’t noticed until this week. One year after the classic viral video ‘What are you sinking about?‘ they seem to have created a few new funny virals a couple of months ago. If you haven’t seen them yet (like me) then be sure to take a look, there’s pretty funny.

Thanks to @netlash and @Andhi I quickly received another 2 variations on the same theme: Tide & Camelia.

Don’t get me started about the French

A couple of months ago I talked a bit about a show called Animals which Ricky Gervais did as a stand up comedian… about animals. I had this 10 minute piece (still one of the best parts) from the show and I thought it was just hilarious. Unfortunately I only had these 10 minutes and not more, as I really wanted to see the whole show once.

Animals

Yesterday by searching a bit online, I found the full show (cut up in 9 pieces) and I tell you, if you want to start this new year with a smile, watch this. It’s brilliant, it really is.

My initial idea was to highlight a few jokes in this post, but that is never going to work the way it should be. So here are the 9 parts, I’m sure you’ll like it… even when you’re French or Swiss :)

Animals (Ricky Gervais): Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8 and Part 9.
