Still delightful. Mila Kunis

I saw this at the time (March this year) and found it charming … stumbled across it again today and still chuckled. If you haven’t watched, see if you enjoy Mila Kunis enjoying a little bit of welcome variety on the PR treadmill … – P

Yet another beautiful model with the geek glasses

Remember I mentioned in ‘Trying to make Google’s glasses look glamourous‘ how the strategy seemed to be: Juxtapose beautiful women with the Google Glass in hopes for a bit of glamour rub off? Yeah, that. – P

Are you dating a tyrant? Take our simple quiz to find out!

In response to a comment from Shayne: How do I know if I’m dating a despot? It’s a jungle out there for innocent citizens like you. We understand. It’s nice to have someone in your life, someone to hold you close — but how do you know if the guy you’re dating is actually an […]

William Shakespeare’s ‘Star Wars’ {snort}

Watch the trailer: 

Celebrating cartoonists. Art and politics.

Ah, the power of creating an immersive imaginary world. And yeah, it’s ART alright. No question. Garry Trudeau’s very sharp Doonesbury is still my all-time-favourite for all kinds of reasons. Locally (New Zealand) I like Tom Scott (see this & this) with honourable mentions (gee, I cite them here at The Paepae frequently enough!) to […]

A old joke with a new twist cites @PeterDunneMP

Spotted in East Tamaki today: Nice reference to United Future Party’s re-registration woes and Peter Dunne’s recent … er … elevated public profile. Smart advertising. – P PS the reverse side is a reference to Tony Soprano!

The Press Gallery thinks it’s sooo #badass …

Here’s to the knuckleheads.* Affectionately, – P * Yeah, I bought the T-shirt. Top pic: Scott Griessel bottom: Universal Studios

Another option: Turn the other cheek

Wow, I hadn’t seen this message from Eleanor Roosevelt to John F. Kennedy responding to his complaints about her public criticism of him. Sharp! Gee, I must consider adopting that approach. Via @BeschlossDC

Leave Duncan Garner alone! (And stop blaming the weed.)

Let me say, first of all: I don’t know how long it takes to get synthetic cannabis out of your system, but I think it is grossly unfair of people who take issue with the accuracy of Duncan Garner’s use of statements of ‘fact’ (and his political sources) to keep referring to this: The latest […]

Amanda Palmer is a genius! (‘Dear Daily Mail’ song)

I like/love Amanda Palmer. You already know that if you read my post: The gutsy Amanda Palmer: The Art of Asking (TED). Here’s her answer to the Daily Mail‘s consistent misogyny. Unmissable, but perhaps NSFW: Genius. And courageous. What a great human being, and media critic, she is. Hooray. – P Lyrics: (via pastebin) Dear […]

Astonishing use of Photoshop to bend reality (John Key edition – episode 2)

Remember this?: …well I thought that was amazing use of Photoshop. But look at THIS: Astonishing! The image appeared in my Twitter stream. I don’t know who the artist is. (If you do, drop me a line in comments below or at this address, and I’ll update it.) In an effort to locate its provenance, […]

A short course in comparative religion

I’ve seen this before, but it’s still funny. (Thanks to my friend Turi Hollis.)

Sights and SOUNDS of coffee being made

Yeah, I’m a coffee addict. I’ve also worked in broadcast engineering, and specifically, acoustics. So this video from Diego Stocco appeals to me on all sorts of levels … Diego Stocco – Huge Coffee from Diego Stocco on Vimeo. Yum. Of course, for many of us, the aroma is the best part of coffee. So, […]

A different kind of internet gagging. And the subtle wit of Judge David Harvey @djhdcj

It’s sometimes possible to ‘get a sense’ of an author by what they write. (Not always.) I’ve talked about the work of Judge David Harvey, New Zealand’s ‘internet judge’ quite a bit here on The Paepae. (See these posts.) I admire him. Because my interests in media/internet/publishing intersect with the sort of cases he handles, […]
