Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 20060612


Sorry I am running late, it’s the Queens Birthday Holiday here in Melbourne, the last long weekend for a while and I lost track of time (I actually thought it was still Sunday until a few minutes ago). So I suppose I should get on with it.

The Cult of Lego continues… Jools spotted this. I really cant believe some of this stuff at this site. Truly amazing, it moves “just because we can” to some totally new level.

This was sent in by Phil and Seona, Jools and a couple of other people who the spam engine seem to have eaten (their mails not the people). It has been around seemingly forever and is still a wonderful waste of time.

I know times are getting tough in academia but really. Bucky Ball balloons? Give me a break. You want to sit there and tell me that Germany can put on a football match for several billion euros and they cant afford to by decent models for their Uni? Seriously some of this stuff is amazing. The Cuban Cluster; no idea what it is but it sure is pretty. The Howto is pretty cool as well.

So the lotto didn’t come in this week, I mean obviously it hasn’t or else you wouldn’t be sitting at work reading it. Here is a site to help you figure out what to do with the winnings. I mean, you have to have a plan don’t you. This is a list of castles for sale. Some of the
ones in Italy seem almost affordable (with a decent lotto win).

The game this week is courtesy of Jools a game and Blame in the same paragraph. Economical what. Here is Jools quote…

“This has Monday dribbled all over it in sparkly glue. ”

And I can see her point it took me ages to tear myself away.

About now your probably thinking it’s time for some music and you are right, this week a couple of bits from Beatpick.

A Crowning Experience
Tom Crowning has produced several top ten hits in well known online charts like, and He combines classical instruments with modern synthesizers to create timeless instrumental music.

BeingFrank are a band from Manchester. Pop songs that you find banging around in your brain after a really short time. All extremely well composed, well produced and catchy (way too catchy)

Sorry it’s a quick one this week..

Now don’t forget the to pop into the blog ( ) for the odd update during the week.

As usual have a good one

{ Currently listening Blackmores Night and Yellowman}
