Trying to sit and be creative

Right, we find we have a problem coming up with ideas at our desks, not all the time but it's happened more often than not. We're not sure why yet but whenever we put ourselves in a more quirky seated position we can think of ideas. Sitting on a sofa, the desk, standing on one leg or lunging just seems to do it for us.  

Sitting normally  doesn't seem to help us at all. Maybe cause it doesn't seem that inspiring staring at a Mac screen, or it could be the added distractions of email, facebook, youtube, digg, blogging blah blah blah we won't go on.  

We always find we awkwardly throw our legs over the slanted plastic arm rests of our desk chairs, try and sit sideways or put our feet up on anything we can. The recycle bin upside down usually works quite nicely. 

But we think we're found the answer in the chair above. It's called the Capisco chair and it lets you sit backwards, sideways and also frontways. Pretty much anyways. We just need to convince our office manager that a £1000 chair will produce the award winning goods. If not, it still looks pretty cool. 

So that's why we're blogging, cause we're sitting normally and can think of nout!

Anybody else have better ideas with weirder ergonomics?

The trilogy meter

Pictures are so much clearer than words. We would agree with most of these. Apart from the two Spiderman films should be slightly higher. 

A decision...

There was going to be a post about some photography. Then we found this water powered jet pack and thought it was cooler.

The Lonely Island is a funny place to go

The lonely Island releases their first album Icredibad tomorrow. Check it out here. The trio of Andy Samburg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone seem like the Mighty Boosh of America to us. They are doing something fresh, mixing simple slapstick, well written comedy with popular music.  

Their big break came when they were picked up by Saturday Night Live. Samburg acts the two others are writers for the show. They got that gig by tapping into the digital trend of creating their own fan base using youtube and their own website. The shows producers saw their home made sketches online and immediately got them on board.  

You just need to look at the production budget of "I'm on a boat" to see that these guys are on their way to doing alot more very funny things!

Do you

Stewie likes to Party

Party with Hod Rod. We're Becoming big fans of Andy Samburg

We've been been asking this question all day. Everyone seems to have a different way of interpreting a party. These are the best answers we've had so far...


"If you're talking about beer and music then yes. But if you're on about a big sexy orgy, then no."

"I'm at a party right now"

So we ask..Do you like to party?
