Pronunciation Book

Finally mispronounced words are a thing of the past. Pronunciationbook illustrates exactly how each word should be pronounced, reminiscent of those Electric Company clips, but with that monotone edge.

YouToob, YouToob. Well this is already a disappointment.

Well at least that's something we can agree on.

A great online canvas with many fun and unusual drawing tools. Definitely worth trying with a wacom tablet if you have one, although even with just a mouse there is much fun to be had. My favourite tools are definitely 'web' and 'shade' creating weird 3D like shapes, and reacting to other drawn lines. Drawings are also cached in the browser, so if you leave the site the drawing will still be there when you return. One negative point is you can't undo any mistakes, which are quite easily made since the tools react to speed and proximity.

Put a ring on it Thom Yorke

Excellent video mashup where once again the original footage kind of gets the piss taken out of it. The footage is Radiohead's new Lotus Flower from The King of Limbs, worlds apart from Beyonce's music. It's just too easy to make fun of people trying to be deep and artistic these days.

Groupon Advert

This advert has been on the side of YouTube videos for a while now. What is this disgusting shit Groupon? It's as if, and probably is, someone got a B&W photo of a burger and then just applied a colour overlay. Pastel coloured food really is not appealing, even if it is all you can eat. They couldn't even be bothered to find a 5th colour for the cheeky burger in the background "fuck it do another pink one". No doubt this advert had to pass several people before being broadcast, which makes the whole thing ten times worse. Perhaps everyone was colour blind.
