Via Chris Saul's blog, this entry on the Olympic Prague contains some of the best machine translation I have ever read.
A how go in for Twentieth Century typical, capital you-break teeth among others on policy
Thanks , do you big propagator sport became a top marshal president Tomáše Garrigua Masaryka, go everything like after steel wool.
Two great clips from Lewis Black on all the clutter on TV screens these days. Sometimes I enjoy this information density, but not whilst watching a movie or series. It totally detracts from the drama carefully crafted by the actors and directors, by slapping a huge animated banner extolling the virtues of some totally unrelated show not starting for another 2 weeks.
"Your job is to tell stories, it's not to tell us in the middle of the story what show is coming on next or which one is premiering two weeks from now! What do you want me to do, stop and get a pencil and write it down? Do you want me to stop watching and prepare myself for the next show?"

Sunday I spent most of the day watching the Sopranos but by late afternoon I was riddled with guilt so I went for a walk in Hyde park and discovered a monument to John Hanning Speke an explorer from the 1800's who discovered the source of the Nile. Unfortunately he died in a shooting accident by his own gun but managed to live quite a life up until his untimely demise. Link

We called Pizza Hut in hackney to get them to deliver some of there world famous food for Lunch. As you can see it was rubbish with Neil being particularly displeased with his choice of toppings. This photo was taken on the same day a record amount of rain fell in London I was supposed to go to the country side with my sister but we couldn't leave because the city was grid locked, it was the first time we had ever driven any where together.
Me and Oscar had the good fortune of bumping into the lovely Jon Burgerman as he was fleeing from Designersblock: Illustrate last night. Before embarking on the long journey back to idylic Norwich, he gave us these charming stickers.
Oscar can very closely mimic Jon's cartoons facial expressions, as you can see from the photos.
Yo. Me and Oscar were delighted and honoured to be asked to repesent Passion Pictures, along with the lovely Lee, in the Designersblock: Illustrate, Secret Wars draw off.
The standard was very high, although in my opinion, our piece was easily the best.
