Dailymotion – The Intelligence² Debate – Stephen Fry (Unedited) – a Film &TV video

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xbvr0m_the-intelligence%C2%B2-debate-stephen-fr_shortfilms Stephen Fry, if you’ll pardon the pun, goes biblical on Ann Widdicombe’s pro-Catholic arguments at the Intelligence2 debates.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RUCfSiMB_2E The talent on display is too spectacular for words, so I’ll comment on my second reaction: This would make the best goth merry-go-round music ever. **EDIT** Frannyy couldn’t grasp it, so I was forced to re-conjure my mental image for him: “100 goths all sitting astride monochrome carousel horses, looking moody and trying to […]

The Teen Files – Part 2: Lines that Divide Us

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2AJ7Vcxk3w I’m sure I’ve Stumbled this before (devs: Search function, pleeeeease!) but went looking for it again after a back and forth with the Good Pastor.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8QZY “The man and the hour had met.” In this case, though, it was the woman and the song: A Scottish spinster – who looks not unlike my grandmother and comports herself like a Glasgow keelie – sashayed onstage at Britain’s Got Talent, and proved that it certainly did.

Snatch Wars (Snatch Vs Star Wars)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDKiQfBs9lo Snatch/Star Wars mash-up that makes Vader into a foul-mouthed Cockney thug. I particularly like his using “Errol” as a term of endearment for any Imperial trooper. Thanks, Sam, for the link.
