Frid-Oink! Linky

Still busy, as you can tell from posting frequency. Still, some linky for a rainy Wellington Friday.

Twilight Eclipse: The interactive YouTube experience, performed as an 8-bit game. Weirdness. More my speed: the not-your-regular-critics insight of What do young women really talk about when they talk about The Twilight Saga: Eclipse?

Fuhgeddabout the Broadway Julie Taymor/U2 failstravaganza Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark. The webbed wonder already has his rock opera, Spider-Man: Rock Reflections Of A Super Hero – and you can experience the best 70s-tastic songs from it right here.

Dr Bunny brings the science with a round-up of great reality-based linky that you should really check out. Includes bonus Elmo!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have been eaten by ghosts

Oink! was mentioned mid-week, re: Frank Sidebottom. It was bloody great, that comic. Find out more here. Read some early, great issues here. And buried in the NotBBC site is this magazine based on the TV show the Oink! team all worked on next, Round The Bend.

But the biggest delight I’ve had in googling up Oink! was discovering that the two songs on the bonus flexidisc that came with the first issue are up for listening on Tony Husband’s site. I haven’t heard these songs in at least twenty years. I still know all the words. Glorious. (Apparently John Peel played them on his show!)

And finally, via William Gibson of all people, the trailer to Beach Girls and the Monster

    The Simon Pegg / Nick Frost possession story on twitter is reflective of why I’m loving twitter so much at the moment. People who create little stories, keep you wanting to see what they’ll tweet next, really make that social network so enjoyable.

    I’m loving where they’re heading now, ‘business as usual’ but their tweets are just slightly odd, and denying the previous ghost event ever happened.

    It’s like Paranormal Activity. Except, well, not crap.

    Another one who tells great, odd, little stories is Steve Austin (yes, Stone Cold Steve Austin). He uses twitter to, a sentance or two at a time, weave these really odd fantastical stories portraying himself as an everyday superhero in a world full of talking sharks and bag snatchers. Certainly one to follow as well.
