Making fun of stuff

The new HTML5 fist

Just couldn’t help myself. I love how it looks like a Superbowl ring.

And now back to our regularly scheduled program, already in progress…

Do not lean over side of railings

To reach Christchurch for our flight out of New Zealand on Sunday, we took the TranzCoastal train starting from Blenheim. The best part was the viewing car, which was open to the air on the sides—great for taking photos (and flaunting the rules).

It’s not a choice if you don’t have one

Stephanie is famous on the YouTubes

It’s not every day that I’m watching a random mock biography about a faux-German with a hit French pop song, and all of a sudden Stephanie shoots across the screen on a scooter. For reals.

The best part is, Stephanie didn’t even recognize herself (at first). As this blurry little figure on a black scooter zipped across the screen, somehow a lone neuron fired deep within my brain, and I said, “Do you know who that was?” She was like “No…”

“That was you.”

And if you thought that was weird, the photo I took of her is also featured on his official website, advertising a contest. Sort of ironic, considering that Helmut Fritz is represented by Sony Music, don’t you think?

Update, 14-Jan-2010: Good news. After getting in touch with some people at Sony Music France, we were able to resolve the matter to our satisfaction.
