Daylight photoshoppery

This excellent blog collects crappily photoshopped pics. 

Clumsy manipulation, senseless comping, lazy cloning and thoughtless retouching are our bread and butter.

Many hours will pass by while you peruse all the poor photoshoppery ribbings at Photoshop Disasters.

You know you’re famous when …

Wikipedia is an interwebby way of knowing you’ve made it, but surely the real test is having a toy made in your liking.

Professor Stephen Hawking is a very, very famous man. 

Lita now desperately wants to be immortalised in Lego, Barbie can go to hell.

How to end an argument

Don’t know how to put an end to all the rows and battles?  These game makers think they’ve found a way. 

Remember, violence is never the answer, no matter how handy you are with a log and some rope.

Soft Cell: Say hello, wave goodbye

This Soft Cell song is a classic fave.  Lita hearts YouTube for having all sorts of versions of this song. 

The 1982 version with a youthful, heavily made-up Marc Almond singing live.

A later version – Marc has smoother vocals and accompanies a tres cheesy vid.

A dance remix – Marc gets his groove on at Gay Pride Manchester 2006.

The longer David Gray version is a winner too, although no live version is up.

If you haven’t had enough yet, and want to lower your standards, check out this bunch of various talentless give-it-a-goers giving it a go and attempting a cover of Say hello, wave goodbye.

Posting in the frame

Tres cool.  You post a cheesy picture of yourself, the lucky recipient opens the envelope, smiles/gags at your pic, then spends the next 45 minutes trying to convert the envelope to a frame.  Perfick, clever, little egomaniacal gift.
