This may be old to most, but it’s brand new to me. I love Flight of the Conchords and Rhys Darby who is so excellent in it. So here he is in a Nike Tennis Commercial. When it comes to … Continue reading
In an interview with Vulture Jon Hamm clarifies that they are mostly herbal cigarettes. How is smoking herbal cigarettes? Terrible. They taste like a mixture between pot and soap. Does anyone on set smoke real ones? Some people do, but … Continue reading

I just love Michelle Chong’s spot on parody of the Singapore Obnoxious Aunty and Chua Enlai’s spoof of our Newscasters and their contrived accents. This episode is from an old season, but it’s such a classic. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1AugMhReoM]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q9lvQE5qagA] I found this interview so sweet and funny. It looks like Suri really has the upper hand, but I do agree that kids should not be forced. Tom and Katie seem like wonderfully doting parents who take the time … Continue reading
I love the intelligent medical drama, House and if this isn’t the best free advertisement for Canon’s DSLR I don’t know what is. I have never owned or operated an SLR, but this makes me yearn for one. Just the … Continue reading

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb-FpMy_Eyk] I just love the produced in Singapore television show ‘The Noose’. It’s the best show on Singapore TV and mocks all things Singapore as well as our news reporters. You have to understand Singlish and the issues here to … Continue reading
Spoiler Alert. Don’t watch it if you don’t want to know how the show ends. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCXlLNWRULo&NR=1] I thought the first two seasons were great, after that I got quite lost myself as the story got more and more convoluted! In … Continue reading
