Is It affecting or am I lame?

I just watched this video on M2 and I found it strangely affecting. I'm not sure if it is because it is poignant, or it's late and I'm feeling a bit grumpy. Still I don't normally like emo, but this seems better than most.


This is really weird.
I have been getting really pissed off lately with the amount of junk I keep getting from Facebook and Myspace etc much of which comprises of pointless notifications from the dubious applications that people have installed. Facebook have apparently stopped apps from forwarding themselves to everyone in your address book automatically virus style, but regardless the crap flood is relentless.
Just as I was pondering this unwelcome phenomenon I saw this on Boing Boing:
It's not Spam, but it's not welcome, it's BACN!

I wonder if the term will catch on.

Suggest Challenges For A Pointless Voyage

I thought I would give some cross posting love to Ewan and Gill (or Malcolm and Kelly if you are a TDDO daddy such as myself) who are embarking on what seems to becoming an annual foot powered voyage of insanity.
