Now that’s what I call ‘news commentary’!

Steve Jobs defeats Bill Gates/Darth Vader and becomes the new Dark Lord harnessing mystical powers of the Force while laughing maniacly … oh boy, it’s good. Here’s an ‘artists impression'(?) of how Apple dealt with Gizmodo editor/receiver of stolen iPhone prototype Jason Chen: Watch the video at YouTube. Thanks to John (“My linking to these […]

Who am I thinking of?

OK, I don’t mean to denigrate anyone. I find this funny. Best wishes, P

Stephen Fry on the joys of swearing

I agree with this: “The kind of people who say swearing is the sign of a poor vocabulary, usually have a pretty poor vocabulary themselves.” — Stephen Fry. That said, I’ve seen the real ‘shock’ effect an outburst of hot, emphatic ‘foul’ language can have on people, including kids — but it’s the intent and tone, […]

Insurance against DISGRACE? Really? You can get that?

Disgrace insurance? I didn’t even know such a thing existed! Live and learn, I guess. From this article in the Herald on Sunday: The documents revealed a year after [Comedian Mike] King was recruited as the face of pork in New Zealand, officials became nervous when the comedian left an obscene phone message* for the […]

Internet ninja cowboys … or schoolboys?

Hilarious! A few hours after I set up ThePaepae.com’s new Facebook page yesterday, overnight we had a sudden surge of email… with a lot of ‘Please confirm your subscription to our mailing list’ messages. It seems someone (who? I wonder) had a bit of time on their hands and submitted ThePaepae.com’s email address (not disclosed […]

Ranting and raving? Oh yes, but sooo right!

I had lunch with my good friend Graeme today after he picked ‘the best song ever written’ on National Radio … and he hadn’t yet seen this absolutely wonderful recent rant and rave, telling-the-truth criticism of Glenn Beck by The Daily Show’s acerbic commentator, my hero Lewis Black …

Uh, kinda missing the point …

So there’s this like Facebook page, right? Where people like take a nostalgic look back at how Facebook used to be, right? Like before all the complicated privacy, breakdowns, and monetization issues and stuff? And you like click on it, right? But then, holy smoke, it’s sorta kinda like what direct marketers call a squeeze […]

Honesty in advertising — a rare and beautiful thing

Yes, I know, I spend a bit of time hassling spruikers (and others) for their hyperbolic marketing claims — like this from Mr ‘get-rich-quick’ himself Dean Letfus: After this week it’s “too late baby now it’s too late” to catch Shaun Stenning and I showing you how to generate genuine, sustainable cashflow fast. … Did […]

Academy Award Winning Movie Trailer – Hilarious spoof!

Every cliché they could squeeze into 3 minutes … And when you’ve watched it, read some of the comments in homage of the style at YouTube. A lot of fun. Thanks to Don Miller. “Inspiring final line of speech that d**bags (ugh) will quote in their Facebook profiles!”

Even more convergence

OK this is getting spooky. After Dilbert climbed into the G4 iPhone prototype theft, now Jon Stewart has also … “buying” for the sake of his commentary the idea that Apple has the Silicon Valley police SWAT team in its pocket. And coining the term ‘Appholes’. Zing! Watch the full 8 min video clip at […]

Kieran Trass: last week ‘property guru’, this week ‘property genie’

Landing in my in-box this afternoon … A promotion for an upcoming ‘not another property seminar’ with Kieran Trass, fresh from his stint at the NZ Property Guru’s [sic] hard-sell roadshow … Starring Kieran Trass as ‘The Property Investment Genie’. Well! Knowing Kieran as I do, I might have plumped for a different imaginary magical […]

Absolutely brilliant!

Jon Stewart responds to Bernie Goldberg’s response to Jon Stewart calling Fox News out on their terrible hypocrisy in rather colourful terms … I know that I criticize you and Fox News a lot, but only because you’re truly a terrible, cynical, disingenuous news organization. — Jon Stewart.
