Labour in - Blair outVideo III isn’t ready yet. Well, the Video III that I describe here isn’t ready yet.

This is:

Backing Blair III – Political Debate
(Flash – 1Mb – NSFW audio)

If you’ve ever watched Blair and Howard bitch and snipe at each other in the House, then you’ll know how entirely fitting this treatment is… but apart from that and a swift reference to right-wing tabloids, that’s about it for the political message in this one. (As you may or may not be aware, Video I and Video II carry a little more weight.)

So… “What is it with this?”, I hear you ask…

Well – and let’s be perfectly frank here – this is bait. It’s meant to have broad appeal and that magic ‘must-share’ factor. I’m hoping to reach a million unique visitors inside a month, and confidence is high (London Underground reached a quarter of a million visitors in a fortnight, and it was pretty London-centric).

You may also note the closing message, which will come to life as a poster (that doesn’t eat up black ink) later today.

The irony is that it may well be this video that makes Labour HQ take Backing Blair seriously.

UPDATE – Yup, thar she blows. New poster design is ready to roll.

I’ll be out for most of tomorrow.

This should keep you busy for a while.

This is enough to keep some people busy for a lifetime.

UPDATE – Oh, go on… have one more: remember Tank Hunter?

Kitten anime, war, space war, a bumpcopter and erm… something else.

This question at the Ultimate Insult led me to a 3D version of Rally-X. Use your keyboard arrows to control the car. The space bar is the smoke button. Have fun.

If you want a serious trip down memory lane, then check out this flash music video based on old video games to the tune of Van Halen’s Jump.

If it’s a new challenge you’re after, then get busy with some boxes.

Diarrhea Dan rules. Well done, Rob.

Notepad Invaders rules!

‘Meh’ is the word that best describes The Credibles.

Watch this and then try to get the theme from ‘Rocky’ out of your head.

The Flying Gonzo Game is difficult, but very, very cool.

London Underground: The SongOK, we’re clear to go live with this.

I heard the song London Underground a few weeks ago and wasn’t surprised to see it bounce like mad around The Interwebs… but I did think it was a pity that it didn’t have a Flash show to make it more communicative and easier to share via linkage.

I also didn’t do anything about that until Wibbler opened his big fat mouth yesterday. Not that he really had to prompt me or anything. He just had to get my attention for the 5 consecutive seconds required for me to conclude that I was the man for the job. If they’d have me.

And have me they did. (Matron! The clamps!)

I got in touch with the chaps behind the song yesterday (Dr Suman Biswas and Dr Adam Kay) and quickly found myself up and about late last night and early today building this. I hope you enjoy it:

London Underground: The Song

Warning: NSFW (contains many a dangdoodle cussword).

Oi! Don’t forget to buy the album! Every penny from CD sales goes to Macmillan Cancer Relief. They say. And you can trust them; they’re doctors. With clean hands and filthy mouths.

(Now all I have to do is wait patiently for the right time to mention my own lyrical mobilities – and the possible need for illegal surgery – so I can make full use of these scalpel-wielding musicians and exploit them like a true pop svengali.)

Note: Backing Blair (which I’m still keeping under wraps) was chosen for the hosting because Balders and I already had beefy servers sorted out for that location… and a little inbound link popularity certainly won’t hurt pre-launch. Also, I’m a little pissed that – because the Tories stuffed up our rail network and Labour have done SFA to fix it (and are set on tube privatisation) – it’s unlikely to be a major election issue.

Funny; you’d think the current government would be able to get the trains to run on time…

(sings) We’rrrrrre out of Pampers, oh no-ho! Lots of other Flash stuff on this site; some good, some bad.

More Yeti nonsense (but nowt to do with Yetisports, by the looks of things).

Spin your wheels for a bit.

Dare you compete in Iron Chef America? (Takes ages to load; hang in there.)

A very good take on Asteroids.

Finally, a I have a lovely Quicktime movie for you: Muppets Over Time

And – if you have the bandwidth for it – Harry Shearer and Dan Castenella on The Conan O’Brien Show (32Mb WMV file – link via BigdaddyMerk). Normally the cast members of the Simpsons appear in person and do their voices it gets pretty tired pretty quickly (and you learn to appreciate how important the writing is on that show)… but this appearance is a real treat.

Eminem accordianised! A jolly good wheeze that reminds me of this little adventure.

Operation and the Temple of Doom. It’s pretty gruesome. Save it for after lunch.

Attack of the brain suckers from space! The instructions are furrin, but you’ll work it out.

Stunt-kiting! I suck at it.

Finally, here’s a merry little film strip that comes to us via Mary.

We’re all happy now, yes?

UPDATE – This little effort should keep you busy for a lonnnng time.
