More evidence of people out and about in slippers, this time in a supermarket.

Am I missing something? Is there a trend sweeping the nation that I’m unaware of? No? then why do I keep finding these people. Don’t get me wrong, if there is a trend which has passed me by that requires me to wear slippers outside on a day to day basis then I won’t be participating.

But the question remains, why do people insist on wearing slippers for outdoor activities? I have a feeling that this is only the start.

 

I don’t know about you guys but I grew up with Lego. I, like thousands of other kids, spent many hours sat in my bedroom building spaceships, racing cars, boats, submarines, spaceships, buildings, bridges, trains & lots of spaceships. So imagine my excitement when I saw the above picture. I just hope it’s in production so I can buy it for my son.

It also got me thinking what other Lego builds would be cool. We all know Star Wars has been a big hit so with a new movie coming out in May could Star Trek do the same? or maybe G.I.Joe, Marvel or the rest of the D.C. world.


Maybe going a bit darker, how about Aliens or Predator but please no Predalien!!

 

Could there be life on Mars? Well that’s what Nasa could be announcing in about an hours time (1900GMT) but am I the only one who saw the front page of the paper this morning at work and said to themselves “meh”

I only feel this way because we have been here before.
In 1996, they said they had discovered fossilised organisms in a meteorite from the planet but other scientists were sceptical and it has never really been proved or disproved.

The reason there may be life on the red planet? Nasa scientists believe ALIEN microbes living just below the Martian soil are responsible for a haze of methane around the Red Planet. Nasa’s findings confirm studies by Europe’s Mars Express probe, which has been orbiting the planet for five years and also reported signs of methane in 2004.

Now at this point I could comment on where the methane came from, maybe….. Uranus, but that’s just too easy so I won’t. Untill Nasa or whoever have hard proof I'm afraid I have to say "meh".

 

From January 1 2009 anyone can print and sell Popeye posters, T-shirts and even create new comic strips, without the need for authorisation or to make royalty payments due to the copyright expiring in the EU.

You may have trouble getting on a flight with them at the moment but still cool as…….

I think I’ll have the grey gun one please.

 

The lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker in the first ever Star Wars film has sold at an auction for $200,000 (£113,000).

The original prop was among lots of Star Wars memorabilia put up for sale by the film's producer Gary Kurtz. It was bought for twice its estimated value. Another lightsaber, used by Darth Vader, was snapped up for $118,000 (£67,000), at the Hollywood film sale.

Other top props which went under the hammer include a Chewbacca face mask, which sold for $50,000 (£28,000) and Luke Skywalker's X-Wing flight suit went for $70,000 (£40,000).

Yoda's walking cane also sold for $50,000 and a Snowspeeder model from The Empire Strikes Back went for $35,400 (£20,000).

The original lightsaber were made from the handles of flash guns from old 1930s cameras, and had black grips added to them so they could be held easily.

The huge sale also included non-Star Wars props including Indiana Jones' leather jacket bought for $94,400 (£53,700), and the jacket Arnold Schwarzenegger's wore in The Terminator, which went for $41,300 (£23,500).

 

I know that it happened a couple of weeks ago but I would like to express my delight that John Gaunt has walked the plank from the radio station Talk Sport.

Although I think sacking him for calling a Tory councillor a “Nazi” and an “ignorant pig” during a discussion about banning smokers fostering children is a little harsh, in my opinion it has been coming for a long time.

When he started on Talk Sport he, for want of a better word, insisted that the callers call him “Gaunty”!?! which could be seen as a little bit too childish.

He is overly rude to people, usually shouting over and cutting off callers trying to make their point.

He refused to be on an end of the year show “Clash of the Titans” with George Galloway, thus ruining a top class show. (Mike Dicken would be turning in his grave)

The very silly and mostly f*#king annoying catch phases ruined every 10-1 show he did since 2005, plus the blatant plugging of his one man stage show and the petty (from both sides) digs between him and Chris Moyles were more than I could stand, so I turned off.

Now I like a shock jock most of the time. I think we all like to hear a foolish caller put in his/her place. Just a shame he couldn’t take it and defiantly couldn’t dish it out.

 

A big thank you to the man who walked down Colchester High Street wearing Slippers.  Awesome! 

Why? .... I don't care, the man was wearing slippers.

Were his feet cold? .... I don't care, the man was wearing slippers

Did he get to where he wanted to go? .... I don't know, I don't care if he got hit by a bus, the man was wearing slippers.

The super spy I am, I managed to take some photos incognito style.

(Yes he is scratching his ass in the top picture.  Classy guy)

 

Well it looks like that time of year. Yes the big man is back on the bottle, Coke Santa. (Very unfortunate sentence).

Every year Coca Cola place the jolly bearded one on their bottles to entice kids into badgering their parents to part with an extra few £’s, and some would believe that Coca Cola invented the modern day image of Santa Claus ……….. which of course is crap.

In fact they started to use the image of Mr Claus in the 1930’s. The company was looking for ways to sell their product during the winter so they turned to a talented commercial illustrator, Haddon Sundblom, who was inspired by traditional English Christmas cards to create the famous drawings. 

The advertising campaign was a success and a legend was born.
