A very cool and ghastly music video by my old friend Mara
 
Mara and the Pillows' music video "Wear It Like It's Black" (Pinata Vandals remix) is now on YouTube on Pinata Vandals' channel!

Redefining the kilogram?  Here is a really interesting video if you like very round objects or have a hangup on weights.

Very pleased with the majority of the MPs voting in favour of same-sex marriage and taking this country into the 21st century. 

Now the law is not passed yet, as it still needs to go through committee stage, third reading, and then the same thing again at House of Lords - http://services.parliament.uk/bills/2012-13/marriagesamesexcouplesbill.html - but with such overwhelming majority (400 for, 175 against) I guess it should easily pass the House of Commons at the third stage. Let's hope the bishops in the house of Lords don't cause too much trouble.. :-/

One question - what has this to do with "Building Regulations (External Retaining and Load-Bearing Walls)" ? 

Now is the time to check what your MP has been up to and give them praise or grumble, so that we get even better numbers in the final stages:

Meh, trodde slik oppførsel var reservert for amerikansk politi. Synd å se at det brer om seg...

Apparently I'm an infant now. Too bad I have to sit on my wife's lap the whole trip!

Yummi guacamole!
 
Weird video with great animation and lovely sound effects.
It has only 13 000 views but over 10 000 likes which is very very high!
ps: Good appetite :)
