Old forests are cut down and turned into toilet paper ...

... and still all the toilets are always out of paper ...
this and many other sad or silly stuff are things we all complain about sooner or later in this amazing life.
Some of the complaints are absolutely justified and should really be dealt with, but in the mean time, why not make a song about it?
I just love the concept :)
PZ links to this: The Helsinki Complaints Choir

It's not an all to new concept (a few years at least), but it's the first time (that i can remember) that i encoutered something like this.
First i thought that maybe it was a 'normal' song in finnish and that someone had placed clever subtitles underneath it, with a different meaning (who would notice but the Finnians?)
But apparently they really are a 'complaint choir' and there are others:


and even more but you'll have to look for them yourselves
(post them in the commments if you want)
have a nice day!

be really carefull what you wish for ...

One more day
a Puppy for my soul
exactly the kind of humor needed to get that previous post as most recent post
zarflax, a few post ago was also from The Perry Bible Fellowship, there are many very funny comics to be found over there
sweet irony :)
i don't get this one though ... but maybe that's because I already have an X-wing

have a very good day, every single one of you

What can I say?

She's every minute of my everyday.

Next to becoming bearable, it's also almost a line from Everything, by Michael Buble, the song I woke up with this morning (thank you 4FM) and of course it's stuck in my head now.
It's nice, listen to it, if you can handle that much romantic atmosphere :)
or watch it! Apparantly Bono and Whoopie Goldberg are featured in the clip (so what? ;))

This is romantic post #00002 by the way, but putting that in the title would have ruined the rhyme between the title and the first sentence :)

ok back to reality, this must be the craziest day in months!

bye bye bad-boy-reputation

You Are 74% Pure

You're pretty pure, and you have no plans on changing that.
You do have a devilish side though... and it will probably get the better of you.

but i do have plans to change at least a few things, if i'm not too busy that is

The Convenientest Truth

Just now i found a parody by Stephen Colbert on 'An inconvenient truth'
An excellent opportunity to pull my post on Stephen Colbert out of the drafts and into the realm of visible posts.

Feeling down, in need of a laugh (I know i am from time to time), looking for a (short) break away from work, ...
I've already pointed out Ricky Gervais and Eddie Izzard and if you encounter any more names, there must be dozens of great stand-up comedy acts available online, give me a sign!

A minor problem with the ones i've already shown to you is that reasonably quick you've seen everything there is to find from them on youtube, googlevideo, ..
(but some of them i can watch over and over again)
If you're looking for a virtually endless supply of funny and at times absolutely hilarious videoclips..
(he/she who has the time to see them all needs to get a life or a job or a girl/boyfriend, or when you girls are tired of boyfriends, a manfriend like me ;))

I know at the moment of only one place to send you:
Go to and search for Stephen Colbert with his show "The Colbert Report"

I think he's fairly unknown here in Belgium, some extra info:
His personality, insight and overall rightness could only lead to The Colbert Report, a half-hour nightly platform for him to give his take on the issues of the day, and, more importantly, to tell you why everyone else's take is just plain wrong.

His somewhat biggest thing is his speech at the White House Correspondent's Dinner in 2006, making fun of President Bush when he's just sitting a few metres away !
I couldn't find the whole speech in a separate movie but it's a part of this movie which contains the entire dinner.
Don't let it load completely, just jump to:
a) Stephen (begins at 50 minutes)
and b) Bush's speech with Steve Bridges (impersonator) saying what bush is thinking is also very funny (begins at 38 minutes, see this first if you'll watch both of them)
It's worthy of your time!

Silly me, worrying about not getting STD's

this kinda put's them in perspective:
sex in space

Not to belittle STD's, certainly not but well this is just ... damn
Just be careful where you put your thing in :)
(STD's = SOA's for the dutch-speaking non-native english speakers amongst my many readers)

Eddie Izzard and language

Someone who can always bring a smile to my face, simply great stuff.

Practical REpost # zero zero one - Cheap books

Went to the this beforenoon, if you didn't already know about it and whish you could have joined me there (or just go by yourself because you actually don't like me and spend your time searching this blog for things to (ab)use against me), i'm not to blame
so I bought only one book for myself, the rest were gifts or general household usefullnessies
anyway, hurry up if you haven't already been there,it closes at 6 and tomorrow there's another chance, for next year is an eternity away from today

sigh, just to make sure: i know 'beforenoon' isn't an english word, but ist should be!! Just like beforemorning (sleepy-time) and afterevening (again sleepy-time) already are.

So last tuesday there was a Flash Mob Pillowfight in Antwerp, where I of course went to, last week's post was no bluff.
I went there with my sister and Nathalie who we joined at the scene, not only was Nathalie there to have fun but also to promote herself as a candidate for miss belgian beauty (VOTE!).

Me and Nathalie, ready to fight

hitting girls ... no problem (women are people too!)

but only if they are prepared to strike back of course

my sister was very happy by the way for getting the chance to hit Axel Daeseleire, a very famous belgian actor :)

(picture from, by Goldface)

man i can hardly wait untill the next pillowfight!!
as soon as I know of one i will post it here so next time you can all join me :)

another pic by Goldface,
my sister's left of the middle, looking down
