shepherds train the world's first sheep-pong game

this might be borderline animal abuse, but holy jesus it's awesome. bridge that agriculture/art gap, why not!

this website is fucking great, basically a free stream of independent, user-uploaded music. it's like being able to sit in a different hipster's bedroom with each click of the button!

and it's getting to that time of night when it's weird to be awake, so piss off and sleep tight xx

i'm under this town

if every night was as rad as tonight, aside from half of my hometown turning into dante's inferno, i'd probably be one of those annoying optimistic people.

also, i just remembered that i used to fucking love this song, seems oddly appropriate:

(at least now we know whose fault it is that somerset west is burning down. billy joel, you're a bastard.)

the zombie apocalypse is here - if you're an ant

creepy. turns out this whole "zombies taking over the world" idea isn't too far-fetched. stocking  up on a shotgun and some tinned food just in case, you can't ever be too safe.

it's ok to poach ideas, but not animals

so ogilvy paris fucked up a little - they've just done a campagin for the WWF that (coincidentallyhappens to be identical to a project by two third-year students from vega in 2009. the ads featured fish wearing masks of various endangered animals, bearing the payoff line "would you care more now?" - whereas ogilvy's version features (you guessed it) fish wearing animal masks and copy that reads "would you care more if i was a gorilla/panda/rhino etc." the students' work won a silver award for print advertising at the 2009 sappi think ahead awards. have a look at this if you want to find out more.

i guess you could argue that it's a co-incidence. if you're one of those people who thinks that the dude from survivor really lives on an uninhabited island between shows.

today i got to play videogames for school

seriously though, part of the project i'm busy working on actually involves me playing games. that's my idea of good education. fuck you, essays and exams and other things of that nature, we can all learn something from duke nukem. (even if it is just how to kick ass and chew bubblegum)

so i go through phases of recording semi-shit songs in my room on a laptop, and i think i'll start uploading them here since there's not much else i can think of that counts as procrastination at the moment. this one is called headwounds, no idea why.

dear god, thank you for stumbleupon. amen.

this is pretty crazy, i saw someone doing a similar thing in scotland once, no idea if it's the same guy. probably not though, "youtube" sounds really stupid in a scottish accent so i bet nobody there takes it seriously.

either way, he is one talented trance-bro.

and you're saying youtube in a scottish accent now, aren't you.
never thought i'd find myself saying this, but this made me look at paperclips in a whole new way.
