The Worlds End – trailer announcement

by fonio on April 30, 2013, 2 comments

I am a huge fan of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. All of the work they’ve done with their friend Edgar Wright is fantastic and I urge you to see Spaced, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz if you havent already. Their new film together, The World’s End, has been talked about for quite a while, I for one cannot wait until its release. Simon Pegg has recently announced that the trailer for the new film is going to be released on the 8th May, expect to see it here almost immediately!

Such a simple site, its fantastic to find people who can see things in a different way, finding an alternative use for purpose other than intended (resize the browser window, you’ll see/hear whats meant to happen). Simple, but clever. Nice one artpolikarpov!

Less than a week after the terrible events of the Boston Marathon, the London Marathon 2013 goes ahead. 37,000 people all running for their various charities, all inspiring stuff:

Running for me has always been a monotonous pursuit and I am always impressed by people who can do it for 2, 3, 4 and more hours. What makes some people run it in rhino costumes I’ll never know:

Fantastic blog, this is what happens when the worlds of sports brands and cheese collide. I am not really sure why they went with the Win98 theme there though, brings back memories/nightmares:

Cat on the end of a vacuum cleaner

That noise, you know, when the nozzle of the vacuum cleaner seals on something and sucks on. Imagine that something to be a cats face and there you have the following:
