Hawesome? Surely that's not a real word...?

The Teenager Audio test

I passed the Teenager Audio Test!

Take The Teenager Audio Test.

See if your ears can hear a frequency "generally only heard by people under the age of 25".

Update: The old page at TrainHorns.net is gone, but I found another version.

Unity Day 2008 Documentary

The video made by Abdul and Mags from the Oblong Design Collective.

Watch out for yours truly, a minute into the film - my eyes look really googly!

There's a lovely moment where the narrator (Sarah from Oblong) very nearly manages to fluff her lines when describing our canine friends. I think it needed a few takes!

Hyde Park Graffit Documentary

I think they're killing people.

Here's a council spokesman who thinks that painting pictures on a wall will lead to an early grave. Apparently it's because graffiti causes obesity. It all makes sense...

Carol's Final Countdown

That's it, then. Carol Vorderman has done her last Countdown. She'll be missed.

So they wheeled out Giles Brandreth for a Countdown retrospectacle with Rick Wakeman, Keith Barron, and other dictionary corner regulars before rocketing into TV hyperdrive by bringing on Carol's Mum! Bless. It was all very emotional, and poor Carol burst into tears at the end. So would I if I was offered a £900k pay cut.

Here's my favourite Countdown moment, snapped from my very own telly-box just last year.

I remember Carol trying her very best not to laugh as the letters came out.

I suppose what makes Countdown so special (Made? Will the new girl be as good?) is the level of viewer engagement in the show. There aren't many game shows where you can really pitch yourself against the contestants on screen, and score your own performance. It's the complete opposite to Deal Or No Deal, which is more like stuffing opium in your remote control.

Two of my favourite things in the whole world... Morph was never as good as this!

The attention to detail in the Goths' house is wonderful. I love the picture hanging above the settee and the spiky, flowerless plant.

The blood-squirting scenes are amazing, and must have taken hours to set up. I especially like the part where the Goth has her hand chopped off.

This is crying out for a sequel. If you can't wait, there's more on Takena's YouTube channel...


I recommend "Chainsaw Maid".
