goat music

Check it out, here is a video of a dude playing a musical instrument made from a goat:

The 'goat bagpipe' is actually a Gaida from Macedonia. Pretty cool. I saw this and I kind of wanted some, even if they are a little weird.I actually feel a little sorry for the poor goat though.I think instead of spending money on *another* musical instrument I can't play maybe I should send some goats to Africa or something.

Look at the pretty colours

Wow.Look at this flower. Is it real,is it fake? First things first, this is not any kind of photo manipulation. What you see in that picture is an accurate representation of something that exists in the world.

Next is it a fake flower. People have been making flowers out of paper and cloth and plastic, and all kinds of things for years. In fact I once had a temporary job when I was a teenager working in a factory that took boxes full of plastic flowers made in China and then put them into frames and made them into nasty little arrangements. Anyway no it is not that.

It is a real, honest, grown flower.Although not the result of genetic mutation or engineering to be fair. In fact it is a normal cream coloured rose of the type that you could get anywhere that you would normally buy flowers. Basically its made with de in the water. Try it out - you wioll have some fun and mess with some roses.

Some things are pretty cool. Like this for instance:

I am really looking forward to watching that show and seeing what they do to transform boring used cars into, well, quite possibly art. Now if only could get some car hire that took that kind of approach my life would be complete.

Another bra and pants video

I remember when you would need to take a flight to Paris to get decent lingerie. Especially in the smaller towns getting anything more than the most basic (and often pretty ill fitting and uncomfortable) underwear was next to impossible. Finding something stylish was very hard. Things have changed a lot over the years. Take a look at this promo video that Marks and Spencer have put out with Natalie Suliman in, who I adore:

Wow! Doesn't she look stunning! the bras that she is modelling really look like good examples of the new style. Call it underwear 2.0 - definitely no need for the flight to France now!
