Spontaneous publicity: In case you missed it (and you really shouldn't) Bret McKenzie and Hamish Blake present the weather on TV One's Breakfast to plug their newly released movie, Two Little Boys.

Spread the word: Meanwhile over at TV3 they are a charitable lot; helping get the word out about Lymphoma - the most common cancer for young people. What word do you hate the most?

Picture this: Vintage book covers re-worked into something a bit more twisted...(Warning: It's satire for grown-ups, people)

What's new in tools: Jaw Saw - it's the chainsaw reinvented, apparently...



Offensive dots follow-up: Want to see the cartoon picture that got The New Yorker tempararily banned from facebook? Here it is...

New favourite blog: Jesus is everywhere...

Music: Apparently this is the 21st top single of all time in NZ. I remember it well...

Science: NASA breaks down temperature information for the last 130 years in 26 seconds...

Foodie hell: Fancy-up your veges with this giant carrot pencil sharpener.

Video: Son videos mother sleepwalking then shows her and records her reaction...

Video: Danish bus company Midttrafik has made an awesome ad to sexy up their mode of transport...

Here's the translation:
(0:13) Midttrafik presents: The bus
(0:23) The bus driver is cool.
(0:25) The bus driver: I am cool.
(0:30) Top nice seats.
(0:35) Gigantic panorama windows with impressive views.
(0:41) Designer bells with cool functions.
(0:49) Free handles.
(0:51) It is big and long.
(0:55) It has its own lane.
(1:05) Yeah.
(1:07) It is street.
(1:11) And it also drives at night.
(1:16) The bus driver: I am still cool.
(1:18) Yeah. The bus is cool, so get up early tomorrow and get a good seat.
(1:24) Midttrafik. We will drive you.
