TwiSixtyFive #81-82

Posted in Hilarious, TwiSixtyFive on March 23, 2010 by dcbradshaw

Added Nick Frost (@nickjfrost), hilarious and awesome comedic actor, and William Gibson (@GreatDismal), bleak and awesome cyberpunk author.

Also, enjoy this freeform brainstorming from Simon Pegg (stuff like this is why I enjoy twitter):

  • I’m gonna write a film about jet bikes. I like them, they go fast on the sea. I play the main character, Jet Bike Steve. That’s all so far.
  • JBS is not a cop. I’ve done that. He’s a pirate but a good pirate. He goes round fucking up the yachts of fat cat health insurance execs.
  • My Jet Bike is called the Barack-uda. @nickjfrost plays my partner Thor, his Jet Bike is big and called Anne. This shit is writing itself!!!
  • There will be multiple installments, the first being Jet Bike Steve And The Bikini Thief. Coming summer 2011. Prepare to get wet. Rated R.
  • The Barack-uda will talk like K.I.T.T. from Knightrider but with a geordie accent. “Fook me Steve, we’re gannin’ reet fat noo!”

Gold!

Since the video featuring him allowing himself to be magically killed by a Tantric mystic:

…is making the rounds right now, I looked up this guy on Twitter and he does have a pretty active account, @Sanal_Edamaruku.  I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see a show like the one he hosts on North American TV, where liars and cheats are called out live on-camera, instead of more of the fraudulent (and in my opinion, dangerous) ghost-hunting docutainment that’s so popular right now.

Seriously, Discovery Channel?  Seriously? The same network that airs Mythbusters?  I cringe at the thought of how pissed off that drivel makes the Mythbusters crew.

Spring

First day of spring, eh?

Snow and icicles and wet and stupid.

Snow and icicles and wet and stupid.

Silly climate, don’t you know that today is the equinox?!?

Also, yeah, it’s been a while, the long excuse is my daughter’s been in and out of the hospital and we’re getting ready to move and I’ve been busy at work with testing and installation of a new projection system (more on that later).

The short excuse is I’m lazy.

Still working on TwiSixtyFive, though, and as today is the 79th day of the year, I’m a little ahead with following 104 people.  I’ve found that there’s a pretty central core of “my style” folks that I care to follow–strangely they all seem to follow each other–and I’m to a point where it’s going to be a little difficult to find more people to follow.

Well, I say difficult, but only as difficult as a 45 second search through Twitter listings will be.  See short excuse above.

Anyway, in the meantime, here’s a hopeful-sounding track from Ulrich Schnauss.  It sounds like Spring to me, even though the weather hasn’t caught up.
