We had a laugh on Friday morning at work.  I was declared to be looking like Terry Christian or Kevin Spacey, while David looked like Roy Hudd, Lynda looked like Family Guy’s Peter Griffin (but with Lois’s hair), Laura looked like a brunette Gwyneth Paltrow, and Michael looked like Chris Moyles or Andre Agassi.  The best was Wil — who looked like Murdoc from Gorillaz!

I was explaining all this to Ruthie after work by showing her videos from Youtube — and now the kids think the character of Murdoc is actually called “Wil”.  They actually LOVE Gorillaz’s music and have now watched all their HD videos several times — how mad is that.

Each time Murdoc appears, they shout in chorus “Wil!!!!”

My life is weird, non?

Here’s an embedded clip of Stylo from Gorillaz on YouTube.com…

How To Fold A T Shirt Fast! 2006/09/23

Posted by Daddy Dave in hacks, Tips and Tricks, video.

I came across this on YouTube, and it took a wee while to figure out because you have to think mirror movements!  I watched this 30 second video over and over about 6 times! I suppose it shows a trick that is time and labour saving and all that, but at the end of the day it is a new fun way to do an ordinary everyday activity.  that and it’s a good party trick! (more…)
