Rocky and Balls

To contradict all the melancholic and sorrowful content of these past… weeks (?), here’s a post that is bound to make anyone at least smile a little bit. There will be cake as well.

Rocky and Balls are two girls from Leeds who sing sweet ditties about the most mundane things and still manage to be funny. They are also known to bake, watch this:

This May they released a 10-track full-length album titled We Like Cake And Beards And Stuff which costs only ₤6 on Bandcamp to own. Alternatively you can listen to the witty lyrics and ukulele here. (If you buy the whole album you get an ultra special otherwise impossible to acquire version of Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” called “Spit Spot”.)

They are also found on Twitter and Facebook.

Jimmy Carr Making People Laugh

Jimmy Carr’s new DVD is out, hilarious as always, (if you like his kind of rude humour). You know, he is the one with the semi-gay Oxbridge face you’d probably want to punch after a while. He even talks about journals:

Obviously my first thought when they said do you want to write an autobiography was, well I wish I kept a journal. But I’ve never kept a journal, because I’m not a fat goth girl!

Even though I believe he meant the handwritten ones kept in the drawer of a nightstand, spot on.

Not having a TV prevents me from keeping up-to-date with current stand-up trends, nevertheless I saw a free performances here and there. Obviously there is a lot of stealing from the big names, they simply translate their jokes or adapt it to a Hungarian situation. Nevertheless I wonder if we’ll ever have an openly rude and politically very incorrect stand-up guy. Compared to Jimmy (or god forbid Louis C.K.) the Hungarians are quite prude and pretty much walking the line, aren’t they?

Húszezer font jutalmat adunk annak, aki a „Radzeer” pontos tartózkodási helyét megjelöli! – Az Admiralitás!
Mi is! – A „Radzeer!”

Szóval ilyen kincsek vannak a neten. Amúgy majd fogok rendesen is írni, de most épp az időmet cseszem el mindenfélével. Például Beliczai Balázs rádiókabarés fellépésének Forma 1-es interjúja alatt szénné röhögtem magam. Meg roppant érdekes még, hogy csodálatosan emancipált világunkban a nők még mindig nem szerepelnek moziplakátokon mint fő-főszereplők. (River Tam saves the internet. Mekkora film lenne.) És hogy Uwe Boll ellen a játékos-community aláírásgyűjtésbe kezdett. Meg ilyenek.

Ja, ki tudja google nélkül, hogy mi a Signum Laudis?

Meg még tegnap a szokásos éves orvosi vizsgálatról hazafelé tartva ilyen emailt írtam Norbinak: 「健康診done」Azóta is büszke vagyok erre a beteg szójátékra.
