How can so much awesomeness exist?

Joss Wheedon, Neil Patrick Harris, Super Heroes, Super Villains, and a theremin.

This only way this could get any more awesome would be if it tied in with How I Met Your Mother.

A Brief History of Meme

Weezer are known for their inventive videos, from Buddy Holly (which was included as part of Windows '95 to show off its multimedia capabilities) to Islands in the Sun.

The video to Pork and Beans the single from their soon to be released Red Album contains a potted history of some of the more pervasive internet memes. If you're having trouble finding them all Fox Australia has a nice little cheat sheet.

I am not a dork

You are 24% white and nerdy.
How White and Nerdy Are You?

I may be white but I'm not nerdy.

Ask and ye shall receive - Venice is saved

Although it baffled some people it seems that I'm not the only person who has heard of Ronḍ Veneziano's La Serenissima. Some kind, but anonymous soul has sent me a link to the video in the comments field.

Anyone else remember this now?

Yes I've been lazy, but only Justin reads this so it's a bit disheartening to see how ignored my little ramblings are.

Anyway, after only four matches it's all over for us. Despite playing their little hearts out, the Irish team are heading home to a heroes welcome. Continuing the tactic of letting in an early goal and clawing through ninety minutes to a spectacular draw, McCarthy's Eleven went on to take shot after shot at the Spanish goal before losing on penalties. The irony when compared to Italy 1990 is far from lost on me.

On the other hand I did go to see Spiderman during the week. What a fantastic movie. This is everything the Episode II should have been and now with Ang Lee's Hulk coming up, it looks like it's going to be a good year for comic book fans.

Another hint: Check out The Libertines. I saw them at the Peterborough Met on Friday and even though they only played for a half hour, they were amazing. I've a feeling these guys are going to be bigger than Blur or Oasis combined. Punk isn't dead - there is finally life after Steps.

Until next time, your favourite wild goose.
