Politicomedy - Palin on SNL

This is the best approach they could have taken. Don't let her speak - just have her sit there and awkwardly smile while you take the piss. Bravo.

Film - Bond vs. Bond

While reading about/listening to the new Bond theme from Alicia Keys and Jack White, I found this number from Joe Buxton (of Adam and Joe) - it's fantastic!

What smarmy East Coast type thought this would be a good New Yorker cover illustration?

Media - Seth MacF and Google team up

The format of this venture sounds interesting - Seth's work could potentially translate to the 2 minute format well.

And there's even more good Seth news here...

Re: Death in the Ring

Ah Mike Awsesome - God rest his dead soul. Stupid shitty federations with amateur ring crews.

Incidentally M. Awesome is responsible for adminstering the single most painful looking bump I've seen in all my 48 years of watching wrestling [at 0:35]:

Skeleton on metal on concrete ftw.

Science-tology - Leaked Mr. Tom Cruise Video

Yes, it's reached the look-and-point stage by now, but really, what would we or the Mew be without our creepiest cult leader stroke hugely bankable superstar? This is his acceptance video for the 2005 Scientology "Freedom Medal of Valor".

There's some fabulous mad-eyed context-free laughter about 4 minutes in.

Stay tuned til the end to see Tom's leather suit, and the phrase "one billion people of earth".

Great job!
