I’ve shared a few of Vi Hart’s videos before, they are a gift to anyone who wants to make math fun because they are fun and about math. She made a documentary with ebstudioslive about how she makes he videos then she made a video about how he made that video, and all her other videos.

Recursion is fun…

That Auto-Correct Song


There aren’t many things that make my laugh out loud even when there is no one else in the room. The crap that gets posted onto sites like “Damn you Auto Correct” definately falls into that category though.

This song by “Ben Champion” play on that, and it’s quite amusing in it’s own right. It’s available to download on iTunes.

If you want to sing along here are the lyrics:
Verse 1

When I said I wanted to kill you,
I meant to say kiss
When I said I was going to to dump your bones in the woods,
I meant to say jump
And now you think I’m a psychopath
And our relationship is wrecked
There’s nothing I can do but put the blame on
Auto-correct.

Verse 2

You said whenever you miss me you smell my shits,
I think you meant shirts
My work was coming in slits and spritzers (sorry)
Spits and spurts
I said you were a whining spaz
When I meant to say shining star
Then I said I was going to pimp your ass
When I went to park your car
And now you think I’m a total dick
And I’m losing your respect
There’s nothing I can do but put the blame on
Auto-correct.

Verse 3

You said you like to fist with men in bars,
I think you meant flirt
Either way I think it’s safe to say
One of us is going to get hurt
I know that you don’t mind jazz
In a quiet little back street place
But you said in your message you quite like jizz
Except when it was in your face
And now it seems we’re communicating
In a brand new dialect
There’s nothing I can do but put the blame on
Auto-correct.

Middle Eight

These thumbs were not designed for typing
Maybe we should just have stuck to skyping
Now all that you can say to me
Is WTF and OMG
This song is one long apology, I admit
This phone is a fluffing piece of shut
This phone is a flecking price of slut
This phone is a trucking place of spit

Verse 4

When I said I like to use glory-holes,
I was trying to type coriander
I was looking forward to eating out
On your vagina
(Verandah, verandah, so sorry)

Now we’ve sent these messages
That we should have double-checked
There’s nothing I can do but put the blame on
Auto-erotic
Auto-erotic
Automatic
Autocratic
Sumo wrestler
Dodo forest
Dildo Carrot

Oh well, what did we expect?
We never should have put our faith in auto-correct.

Ancient Apple Video Blue-Busters

This cheesetastic video was apparently played during an Apple sales meeting back in 1984. According to YouTube Commenter majorkahuna:

I was there in Oct. 1984. This was not an internal ad. I was a 1984 state of the art multimedia slide show with audio by Ray Parker Jr. who sang the original. There were also live dancers on the stage.

This was the opening presentation of the International Sales Meeting that introduced the Lightwriter later renamed Laserwriter.

Apple always used a current movie as a them for the sales meetings. in 1985 it was Back to the Future.

For the record I had a quick look and can’t find the 1985 Back to the Future video on YouTube… This makes me sad.

 

Mental German Woman Builds her Own TARDIS

Sillysparrowness is apparently a German teacher and a YouTube Sensation (If she wasn’t before she will be having built a TARDIS, that’s how the internet works isn’t it?) In the above video she goes through the trials and tribulations of building a collapsible TARDIS.

The video is worth watching if only for the “Bag of Shame”.
