12/04/10 The weird headline finally got a mention!

For some reason we were extra chatty this week

This is possibly the most fun thing I have found online lately. Real world racer is a site designed on google earth where you can race against a computer along the images of streets and roads. You can enter the points of any two places in the world and race between them against the computer. Now you will reach ridiculous speeds and you will beat the opposition but racing against your own best times is interesting. There are cool tracks already programmed onto the site like around the rock of gibralter or by Bondi beach in Sydney, or you could just enter two points in Ireland where the google imaging is good and race there. I found it especially fun racing around city streets recognising landmarks from above. is next. This site won't actually make you babies but will let you see hypothetically what the child of the people whos picture you upload to the site could look like. Now future parents out there this is not genetically acurate if you upload potential father and mothers picture, you're child will probably look nothing like the image you'll get. But on the plus side you can see what reproducing with celebs could look like. For example I completely randomly picked Angelina Jolie to see what our child could look like

Now I know she has loads all ready but if your watching Angie, thats what it would look like.

it works by mixing the facial aspects of the two pictures and mashing them together cutting out the 9 months and responsibility that comes with the classic method. ANybody out there who wants an effective way of splitting up with their boyfriend this will work, "This is what our child WILL look like." Also available as an Iphone app.
Is a site by a guy called Kutiman who makes videos out of mixing random youtube videos and musical tutorials together. Like this one to have a look at all the other videos he has made. and you can find all of the original videos there too

Two guys called Colm and Martin were on the show a while back. There travelling around europe, 16 cities 20 days. Finding out what it means to be european. Check out the site to follow their blogs and videos from their daily tasks.

entertain me!

5. People who investigate strange noises in horror movies deserve to die

4. I didn't know Twinkle Twinkle little star has the same tune as the Alphabet.
(what came first, just got lazy and picked a tune that kids would know, or was the situation like father ted at "song for ireland" where they get in the lift and their song is already playing)

3. I hate when you're hanging out with Wally and he goes missing.
(or waldo as the americans call him)

2. For those who have felt the pain of stepping on an upside down plug!!

1. running for the laptop charger like its the end of the world.
(I always do this, it always just dies as I get it)

Celeb Link

Leona Lewis has apparently just recorded a duet for upcoming film sex and the city 2 with Jennifer Hudson. This song is said to be the main theme song to the feature. This is so as to appeal to both the Us and UK audiences. It looks like she's the new girl to call on if you've got a movie that needs a sound track after James Cameron used her "I see you" song for Avatar and "Happy" is used in "Precious" Surprisingly though neither of them got Oscar shortlisted. But its good to see someone from a reality talent show after getting somewhere 4 years on.

Amanda Holden, The Britains got Talent Judge has revealed that she is considering releasing a country music album. She's after filming a special about 'country music on her show and has fallen in love with it. She's sang in Nashville, the home of country music. And she's now in talks to release an Lp. But I think there will be loads of stories this week about people associated with BGT because its back next week and they seem to be craving attention.

Donald Trump has confessed that he is a fan of Lady GaGa. The multi multi multi loaded business man has said he'd love Lady G to appear on celebrity Apprentice, his show. He went to see her live and now reckons that if he managed to get her on the show, she would win hands down because she is so driven

Weird News

RSC are reinacting Romeo and Juliet in the modern age over the next 5 weeks via twitter. They are limited to 140characters so end up having quotes like “jules is over an out xxx.” At the moment Tybalt is at risk of expulsion from school.

Two Chinese
singers have become the first people in the country to fall foul of new rules banning lip-synching nearly two years after widespread criticism of miming at the Beijing Olympics' opening ceremony. Both of them have been fined around €7000 each. Its a bit weird though that the first convictions were brought against small singers instead someone global like Brintney Spears.

is made literally in any flavour you want and thats not just in Charlie and chocolate factory or my dreams. Some of the wide variety can be a bit strange though. An Edinburgh based chocolatier has released Haggis flavoured chocolate. The dish which is made from Sheeps heart Liver and lungs, can now be enjoyed in a handy bite size bar. Apparently its quite popular, I don't know if I'll be digging into a bar anytime soon though
