Look Sam

Another warm day yesterday afternoon.

Isn’t Wireless LAN just great?

Supervising the kids in the back garden no longer means not being able to take your laptop with you.

I’ve had wireless LAN for a long time - but the weather hasn’t really provided the opportunity to use my laptop in the back garden for quite some time. So - I sat there in the shade and cooked up my own version of Flash-based spoof pop-video in the style of Joel Veitch at rathergood.com - this time using the senior managers at work as “singing heads”. I did what I could in the couple of hours that I had - some of the song/text synchronisation isn’t brilliant - and it was a real struggle using the little mouse “nipple” in the middle of the laptop keyboard so it does look a little rough and ready - but I couldn’t help but laugh hysterically out loud at the end result.

So as to prevent pissing off people, the flash is not downloaded every time this page is viewed (because it’s approx 1 Mbyte) - you have to click the big red button below to load it. ALSO: Turn up the volume and enjoy!

The Police

I hope the senior managers in question don’t get offended if they see it.

(I resized the movie to fit in this blog. Click here to view the original-size version.)

just wanted to pop by and comment, lovely site here… and route 79 is my local one too, what a coincidence!

Hey - thanks for stopping by!

Your pages are great too! Think about me next time you’re on the 79 bus - or next time you see one. It will improve my online chakra!

And in return I will promise to watch an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer on Sky! :-0

Best regards - Jag

usually i’m one of those ones running from across the road trying desperately to catch the bus, or watching 3 go by at once…

and yes watch buffy, it’ll do your mind (and body) good :)

Yes - I have probably seen you: you are probably one of many people that I have “willed” the driver not to stop for! But if you show me a sign (e.g. a Buffy kind of look) then I will project the right form of Karma to the driver - and he/she will stop for you. It is a privilege ordained on but few mortals who dare to intercept my command. For I am the spiritual controller of Route 79. (Southbound in the mornings and Northbound in the evenings.)

Best regards - Jag

Hi Jag,

great stuff! You are forcing me now to get a personal trainer for my belly muscles!
BTW, this exercise was part of our Swedish workshop.

Hey Thomas!

I didn’t expect you to find this! Now I am embarrased! Well - I hope you found it funny - everybody I have spoken too says that “your” character is the best part! And I would have to agree!

Best regards - Jag
