The Wikipedia article on Pac-Man "ghosts" is hilarious.
Apparently these two fellas are called "Inky" and "Clyde".

Update: 22 May 2010
Pac-Man turns 30!
Interactive Google Doodle Pac-Man Game.
Insert coin to play! 
Screenshot of my attempt. Epic Fail.

Guitar Solo.

Nothing sounds more awesome than an acoustic guitar.
Except perhaps an acoustic bass?

Pomplamoose is probably the best YouTube band right now.

The Concise Coughsford Dictionary.

After being sick for a week, I've become quite the cough connoisseur.

 The Van Cough.
Also known as the Snough,
where you kinda cough and sneeze at the same time.
You spasm, which means you don't get to
close your mouth quick enough
so your phlegm flies out and lands on the wall
looking like a piece of abstract art.

What to do: Sell it to rich people.

The Phlegm Flam.
Fiery coughs leave you with
a burning sensation in your throat
and a hot new voice.

What to do: Invite the neighbours for a bbq.

The Fountain of Goo.
You spew so much gunk every time you cough,
it's like a snot tsunami.
And when you breathe,
you sound like you're gargling.

What to do: Strike a fancy pose next to the garden gnome.


The Coughenhagen.
The eco-friendly cough.
Minimal bronchial emissions
reduce your carbon footprint.

What to do: Campaign against coughs and climate change.

The Kraken.
The cough from hell.
Itchy, scratchy, and mercilessly dry.
Yet still better than spending 1.5 hours watching
Clash of the Titans.

What to do: Watch Kick-Ass instead!

The Hamburger.
You cough your guts and your lunch out.

What to do: Swallow.

Murray Monday.

Murray Hewitt, Flight of the Conchords' manager.
Wish he'd go on tour too.
GingerBalls, this is for you!

Flight of the Conchords tour UK & US.

Haha, my fan art is so bad!
Jemaine looks like a woman
and Bret looks like Jesus.

(I guess sending this to them won't score me any free tickets huh.)

Tour dates

Yargh!! I wish they'd tour somewhere closer!
Flight of the Conchords has got to be the funniest band ever.

How to train your dragonfly.

Chain it to your neck!

Made this for Emmy for her birthday last year.
Don't know anyone as crazy about dragonflies as she is.

On a side note,
saw "How to Train Your Dragon" a couple of weeks ago.
Love the different dragon designs!

Earth (Yester)Day.

Fig. 1
What Earth looks like to those living in their own world.
(Forgive my planet portrait, I suck at geography!)

Fig. 2
What Earth really looks like.
(38 natural disasters recorded from Jan - April 2010 alone.
That's an average of 9.5 tragedies a month!)

Fig. 3
What Earth will look like if we keep saying
I'll Do Something Tomorrow.
(Incidentally, geography will be really easy!)

Fig. 4
I don't mind living in a yellow submarine,
but I'm really scared of fish.

Didn't realise yesterday was Earth Day till I saw the Google logo.
I always love Google Doodles,
but I'm having trouble seeing Google here -
no matter how much I stare,
all I see is "Coo"!


Please tell me I'm not alone.
I feel... challenged.

Bad weather & bad moods.

Ash cloud

Black cloud

Positive thought cloud

When crap happens, most of us just mope around
with a black cloud over our heads.

I guess thinking positive is hard to do when you're
stinky, sleepy and stuck in an airport,
with no clue when that blasted volcano in Iceland will let up.
But these guys chose not to let an ash cloud darken their mood.
I like how sincerely happy they are as they try to
spread some sunshine!

Andrew Allen sings Volcano.

Mr Marcus shows us how to Juggle Socks.

Last Christmas, I gave you my bead barf.

More of the stuff I made for friends last last Christmas.

I had (and still have) no clue how to do this properly.
Didn't have those tiny metal thingamajigs
to hoop pendants through chains,
so I resorted to black thread, lots and lots of dead knots,
and UHU glue (magic stuff!).

Real jewellery pros would be horrified.

As a result, all my pendants have a little cow lick
like Alfalfa in "The Little Rascals".
Not very obvious in the photos though.

All I want for Christmas is bead breath.

Twas the week before Christmas -
and I was barfing beads.

Two Christmases ago, I was broke.
So I decided to buy a bucket of beads
and make necklaces for
my closest friends.

My breath still reeks of beads.

Up, up and away!

Inspired by Pixar's "Up".
Crappy test shot taken with my camera phone.
