Zombie Story

I came across this this today, a slideshow showing the similarities between the Toy Story films and the TV show The Walking Dead. It’s really well done. Be warned though, if you’re not up to date with The Walking Dead (or Toy Story for that matter) there are spoilers ahead.

Shave Day

Well, the job is complete and my head has now been shaved. The whole experience has been a positive one and shown me that there are many caring people all over the globe. I more than achieved my goal, and at the time of writing this post I’ve raised $2595. Just wow.

I have a few people to thank for their generous support, but first, a small and frivolous video interlude:

And now on to the people I need to thank. First up, my wife for supporting me in doing this in the first place (I know, I only shaved my head, but it’s still nice to have her support) and my mum for taking time out of her day to do the shaving. Secondly, to all of the generous sponsors who made this such a successful experience for me and allowed me to raise the amount I did. It means a lot to know I had that kind of support. And lastly, to everyone who retweeted, liked, commented and just generally showed an interest over the last month or so. It’s been great fun and has been an interesting experiment in and of itself seeing the power of social media in action.

Best Door To Door Salesman Ever

Now first up, I can’t take credit for this find, that honour goes to the wonderful Michelle MacPhearson. Today, Michelle posted a YouTube video on her Facebook page that really has to be seen to be believed and needs to be shared.

A guy by the name of Kenny Brooks was doing his door to door sales and the whole visit was luckily caught on video. Why should you be lucky to have this? Well, think of all the door to door sales people you’ve ever had knocking on your door. I guarantee you that none of them have ever been like Kenny, the guy is a master. He’s learning his trade and doing it the hard way. I’d love to see more of him in the future.

Reality Hits You Hard Bro

Man, sometimes I just love the internet. Take five minutes and watch the two videos below. The first is a news story about a car accident. It’s funny all by itself. But where things really go to the next level is what the Songify This guys do with it. Prove positive that there are some very, very creative people out there. My new favourite music video.

The original news story:

Power Lines Fall on Crashed Vehicle, Driver Trapped:

The Songify tribute:

Just awesome.

Will You Take The Lollipop?

I often wonder why people get upset about privacy on Facebook. It’s a simple rule, if you don’t want personal information about yourself online, don’t put it there. My nephew pointed out to me today a brilliant site called Take This Lollipop If it doesn’t make you think twice about what you share online, nothing will.

Go on, I dare you. Take The Lollipop

I’ll write my follow up tomorrow…
