Cheer up Keanu, it's Friday!!

Figured I'd round out the week with a few bits and pieces of stuff I've been sent and/or discovered over the last week that give me the odd smile.

So first up. The iPhone 4. Just be careful how you're holding it, otherwise it won't work. ... Uh Oh.. I did get my hands on one yesterday, and it is far better than I imagined, but you will need to get a ZAGG invisible shield for it (which really are amazing), just in case. I smiled at the number of people that broke their iPhone 4 on the day they bought it. Now I know I shouldn't laugh at other peoples misfortune, but really... as I didn't get one - it is quite funny.... but at least there's already this for them (I'm loving the disclaimer and the commentary - thrilling, edge of the seat stuff!):

And talking of other peoples pain...Piers Morgan has married his girlfriend - you've got to feel for the poor woman.

Ever heard of Randy Regier ? Nope ? Thought not... He's an artist and he specialises in toys. But not just any toys, oh no. Randy's toys are historical toys of the future. While they might look like the real thing, he made them all up himself, and a wonder to behold they are. I wouldn't mind a "John Manshaft" watch, or even "Whitey Cracker" sitting on my desk.

So next up - Dalek's. We all understand how deadly they are, but have you looked them up in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy... static electricity and hate... who knew?

A quick one for movies buffs: The Aspect Ratio Police

...and for the Family Photograph buffs:

Remember - Cool Guys don't look at explosions

And finally - Sad Keanu. This is a bit crazy, but basically this phrase is a very recent addition to the Internet english Language. It's one of those things that's just sort of happened and then went all viral. A news and picture agency took a picture of Keanu Reeves eating a sandwich on a bench. Nothing innocuous about that, but then some bright spark took this picture of Keanu looking sad (although he was probably just wondering what was in his sandwich) and photo-shopped it. And then... a star was born.... Suddenly (and this is in the last month) hundreds of photoshopped pictures of Mr Reeves started showing up, to the point where some other bright spark set up a website ( as a place to keep them all.

Well, the news agency got the hump about it and issued a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) Cease & Desist, so the poor fella had to stop it, but of course that doesn't stop the internet. So I present in all it's glory: Sad Keanu...

...and if you're crying out for more, well you could always have a look here:
