Jemaine, You Got It Going On.

When it comes to the words
every girl (and guy) wants to hear,
no one says it like Jemaine.

The lyrics kill!

"You're so beautiful,
you could be a waitress."

"You're so beautiful,
you could be an air hostess in the 60s."

"You're so beautiful,
like a tree."

"Or a high-class prostitute."

(And my favourite!) 

"You're so beautiful,
you could be a part-time model.

But you'd probably still have to keep
your normal job."

The Day Leigh Flew Away.

Not my most imaginative design,
but it's from the heart.

Will miss you.
Texas is lucky to have you.

Jemaine in Black III.

at getting the role of the villain in Men in Black III

Exciting news.
But makes me a little sad that he's going so mainstream.
Feels like Flight of the Conchords really won't see a third season. 

See the original Jemaine portrait I did here.
I just filled in his glasses, haha.

Flight of the Conchords Fever - The Humans Are Dead.

Watch the credits
and get your money's worth.

Flight of the Conchords Fever - Albi the Racist Dragon.

And at that, Albi cried a single tear,
which turned into a jellybean - all the colours of the rainbow!
And suddenly, Albi wasn't racist anymore.

Brilliant song.

Flight of the Conchords Fever - Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros.

All the talk about the Flight of the Conchords tour in the UK
is making me feel a little blue.

The Other Side of the Rainbow.

The other side of the Hot Air Balloon.
Danny said it was a ping pong bat.

The Hot Air Balloon inspired by "Up" from my very first post.
My camera phone couldn't do the colours justice
so I thought I'd post a proper pic.

Totoro in The Rain in The Dark.

In which Totoro discovers the umbrella.

Totoro Interlude: Dust Balls.

The soot sprite scene in Totoro is one of my favourites.

Mei calls these Dust Balls "Makkuro Kurosuke"
although most people just refer to them as
Those Black Thingys From Totoro.

My mini Totoro display!
Furry soot sprite given by Kat.
Poster given by OJM.
I love how they're all randomly screaming.
(Look at the Chibi Totoro! He's hilarious.)

Today's post is dedicated to
the biggest dust-phobe I know.
My mum!
Happy Mother's Day, Mumsy.
I love you!

And no, that's not my mum.
That's Mr Miyazaki. LOL.

Totoro in Toy Story 3.

Inspired by the smallest Totoro of all.

Apparently Totoro makes an appearance in
Pixar's upcoming Toy Story 3!
Watch the 3rd trailer.
Totoro appears at 0:49!!

In this scene, Mei stumbles upon her first Totoro.
Who also happens to have invisible powers!

Totoro in 3D.

Inspired by "Tonari No Totoro"
or "My Neighbour Totoro".
My favourite film by Hayao Miyazaki.

Proof that you don't need 3D
to create stunning visuals.
Even with all that technological gee whiz,
James Cameron's "Avatar"
character design comes nowhere close
to capturing the imagination
the way Miyazaki does.

The new colour-organised bowl system rocks!

Before I start putting a design together,
I normally have to spend at least
half an hour picking out the colours I want

from the multicoloured bucket.

No more of that nonsense.

Today's POW! design is inspired by Kick-Ass.
Gotta love the tagline:
I can't read your mind.
But I can kick your ass.
Awesome show.

Wanted to turn it into a pendant
but I couldn't figure out how to make it smaller.
Right now it's as big as my face.

When I was done,
I picked out the yellow beads
and I thought it looked even better.

Reminds me of those old
Batman cartoons from the 60s.

Laborious Day.

Yesterday was Labour Day
and also Saturday
as well as Food Poisoning Day 2.

Between the bed and the toilet bowl,
I couldn't think about barfing beads.

OJM decided he'd come over
and organise my beads for me.
He's the best!

Now everything's lovely and colour-coordinated.
Or as he would put it, Everything's Neat and Organised -__-

Our favourite is the green bead bowl
coz it looks like a bowl of spring onions
and gives one a curiously strong desire
to eat Chicken Rice.

Thanks Babs!

Only one and a half more buckets to go!

Happy Labour Day!

Labour Day should never fall on Saturdays.
It defeats the purpose!

In the spirit of the Day of Rest,
here's a list of my
Top 5 Favourite Ways to Fall Asleep.

#5. Falling Asleep at Work.
This requires great skill.
Try to maintain a position where
you look like you're working,
or at least,
thinking about work :)

#4. Falling Asleep in Front of the TV.
Nothing's nicer than
shutting your eyes for just a bit
then waking up in the middle of an action scene
and realising you didn't miss anything.

#3. Falling Asleep in the Car.
The air-con's on, the seats are snug,
your eyelids are heavy...

#2. Falling Asleep in the Car
After an 8-course Chinese Dinner.

The air-con's on, the seats are snug,
the car is heavy...

#1. Falling Asleep for 5 More Minutes.
Whoever invented the Snooze Button is a genius.
Apparently it's the same guy who wrote Ben-Hur?
How disgustingly multi-talented.

What's your favourite way to fall asleep?
