I don’t ussually jump on internet memes, and post about them in my blog. There’s plenty of other blogs for that, and some are dedicated purely to pictures of cats with funny taglines, so why would I reproduce just that?
Well, when it’s fringe enough like something related to drum’n’bass mixed with religion, then it’s something that has enough relevance to be posted here, and IMHO funny enough as well.
So without further ado, here’s some church folks raving over some classic drum’n’bass and junlge tracks.
The intro of this one is excellent:
This is the first part of the previous one:
Good syncing in this one. I love it when that amen drops after 30 seconds.
And my personal favourite, because Messiah is such a fitting tune and those comments:

Twitter. It’s kinda fun. It’s also fun to see how much apps are popping up all over the place doing something with the public data from the twitter feeds.
Stuff like Twitterholic for instance, which gives you an overview of which twits have the most followers. Barack Obama is clearly at the lead there. Unless you’re fanatically being followed as well (you need over 2.559 followers at this very moment), you’re probably not in the list. You can hack the URL though by adding your own twitter name at the end like this http://www.twitterholic.com/twitter/n3wjack and see your own stats. Sweet!
More stats? Well okay, how about Tweetstats. Yet Another Twitter Stats tool, but it puts it all into a nice colorful bar charts, and bar charts rock. It seems to be rather popular since it’s queueing people to render their stats at the moment. Heh.
How about the really useful stuff? Hey, this is Twitter remember, don’t get your hopes up too much. Twittertale gives you all the pottymouths out there for instance. Always interesting to know which rude words are popular these days, so check em out.
Can’t get enough? No problem, there’s plenty more where that came from.
Stuff we came across recently, not worthy of a full post but fun, interesting or sweet enough to get stuffed together in an orgy of hyperlink goodness.
- Lemmings the oldskool computer game rewritten for the web. If this gets you excited you are probably old. If you’ve never heard of it, it’s probably something you won’t really get thrilled over. Move along youngsters, nothing to see here. (via Angelo)
- The story of stuff is a 20 minute online video about how our consumer society is eating up the planet, and the people with it. You will have heard most of these facts before separately, but when the puzzle is put together it sheds a new light on the situation. Well worth the 20 minutes of your time IMO. Makes you think, or at least, it should (via Ine).
- Another one, on a much lighter subject is The Nerd Handbook. If you have a nerd around, or are a nerd and feel like people might benefit from reading the manual, then this is something for you. The funny thing is that it’s actually quite accurate when it comes to nerdish interaction and logic. Hell, I can tell. (via Lifehacker)
- Face On, a photo exhibition occurring in cyberspace and meatspace at the same time. Browse through the virtual exhibition room and check out the portraits or add your own to the mix. (via Pietel)
- Rat Trap, an interesting article about drug addiction, and how the drugs are not the problem, but our enviroment. (via Jungletrain.net)
