I Can Do That

Tilly and the Wall: BEAT CONTROL

Tilly and the Wall have a tap dancer instead of a drummer. Which is pretty cool if you think about it.

Link Time

Continuing the football theme, Here's a link to pictures from Liverpool's Christmas fancy dress party. My favourites have to be Gerrard's(above) and Aurelio's. Disappointed by Torres though.

Oh Stephen.

Stephen Ireland is not right in the head, it's as simple as that. But he's a really talented footballer so I, for one, was willing to forgive him his strange indiscretions. I felt that the lies about dead grannies, the hair implants and the superman shorts would all be forgotten if he started banging them in for the national team again. That was until i saw this picture of his new customized Land Rover. Makes me ashamed to be a football fan.

The Magic of Karl Pilkington

For anyone who doesn't know who Karl Pilkington is yet, I will offer a brief explanation. Karl Pilkington, is the producer of, and contributor to, the Ricky Gervais Xfm Radio show. He is, by his own admission, extremely simple and has an obssesion with anything weird especially "freaks" and monkeys. It is as if Karl sees the world through the eyes of a five year old. I think the following statement from his wikipedia page best describes him;
"It was Karl himself who best summed up his worldview: "I don't like fun". He is not a fan of holidays, parties, traveling, or anything that has to be planned in advance. Maintaining relationships with family and friends is a tremendous hassle for him. He is also largely indifferent to some of life's great pleasures, like sex and music.However, If there's anything that fascinates Karl more than monkeys, it's freaks. His favourite film is The Elephant Man, and his prized posession is a little book of freaks from FHM which he carries everyhwere. Karl is extremely gullible and believes all urban myths no matter how implausible.
It was out of this interest that Cheeky Freak of the Week was born, in 2003. Similar in format to Monkey News(in which he tells improbable stories about monkeys which frequently apply strictly human attributes to primates),it involved Karl informing Ricky and Steve about a freak he'd discovered. Karl was always keen to stress that the feature wasn't "having a go" or "taking the Mick", it was to make people think, about what it would be like to have that deformity, what would the pros and cons be, etc.

As well as his specific views, ideas and philosophies, Karl also has a unique way of speaking. Karl's idiolect is made up of old-fashioned sayings (eg. "have it away"), Mancunian slang (eg. "knockin' about"), and correct English that has been misspoken (eg. "squoze")."

There is some speculation as to whether Karl is made up or not, but Steve Merchant and Gervais always strongly deny this. Personally, I originally thought he was fake but after listening to hours of his podcasts(its very addictive) I am finding it increasingly difficult to see him as a fictional character.

The Ricky Gervais Show - 'She boiled her brain...'

The Perry Bible Fellowship (Click on strips to enlarge)

Nicholas Gurewitch is the best thing to happen to comic strips since Gary Larson. His strips, which can be found here, are really sharp, consistently funny and, as you can see above, illustrated brilliantly in a number of different styles.

I Never Realised That Chocolate Rain Could "Raise your neighborhood insurance rates"

Yep, that is his real voice.

Dogs Standing Upright Is Just PlaIn Wrong

Driving Instructor On Sky News Who Sounds Like David Brent

It's the "do that twice" bit that sells it for me.

We Are Scientists - After Hours

My dream is to have a loft apartment like that with an elevator that opens into to the front room. Not gonna happen though.

Melbourne Shuffle

The moonwalk meets jumpstyle!!(if you don't know what jumpstyle is look it up on Youtube) The melbourne shuffle is a dance for people with too much coke and testosterone.

My Countdown Of The Best "Kids Getting Hit In The Face With Things" Videos.

Please note that I do not condone kicking things at children nor do i partake in these activities, these videos are not representative of the good people at jackdev.blogspot, but they are very funny.

At number (3

At number (2)

Like a snipers bullet.

And Number (1).

That slowed down voice makes everything sound funnier.

Lend Me Your Face

i think 2 minutes is a brilliant length for a song, short and sweet and leaves you wanting more. I think producers should compress songs like 'Stairway to Heaven' and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' into nice two minute ditties*.

*I don't really.

Tetris Skits - Family Guy, Futurama, Simpsons

I think Family Guy shades this one, with the Simpsons clip a close second.

Ben folds is just brilliant live.

Effin Eddie in The County Final

A video in the same vein as "Give up your oul sins". I think this one might be even funnier though.

Child Beater

Really like this vid but you do feel kind of weird watching a grown man kick infants in the face.

My name is John Daker

To be fair to the singer, the piano player is nearly as unintelligible.
