Hugely popular in the Belgian new wave music scene, they moved from the US to follow their success.
No Tears will always remain their real breakthrough song and an anthem for a generation.
Head down and start swaying …
(If you parse this video through here you get the full 20-something minute song out of it)
Seems to be no footage online of this episode. Too bad.
A new series of “The IT Crowd” has been launched by Channel 4 and the inevitable internets have put them on the tubez. So here we go, hold tight for a ride of laughter:
Season 3 Episode 1 : From Hell :
Synopsys (shameless rip from the Wikipedia entry):
After Roy goes to Jen’s house to retrieve £5, he sees Jen’s builder who he recognises as a Builder from Hell. This convinces Jen to keep an eye on him, so he doesn’t urinate in her sinks. On his way to work, Moss is harassed by a group of teenagers so he gets lessons on how to stand up to them from Roy. Douglas is oblivious to the fact that he is running the business into the ground by spending the pension fund on gold flakes in the water supply, and erotic art. After rummaging in his desk, he finds a service revolver and a note from his father telling him to shoot himself if he is too overworked. He then proceeds to play with the gun and he then shoots himself in the thigh. He tells Moss to phone the emergency services, who then finds the gun which he uses to scare the teenagers. Jen starts to record the builder and finds him urinating in her bathtub, but she fails to record it and instead is put on live video feed with the Japanese investor.
Six term and lifelong Alaskan senator Ted “The internet is a series of tubes” Stevens finally lost his position as a senator. Despite an earlier seven charge conviction of fraud he maintained his election position and refused to back down. That, along with the fact that even Sarah “Rambo” Palin didn’t support him either seems to have caused his political end.
After a lot of extra manual counts of early votes, Democrat Mark Begich seems to take a lead. Thus the man who brought in the pork for Alaska (think of the bridge to nowhere) will be finally ousted.
For those who can stand two and a half minutes of utter rubbish : The famous “The internet is a series of tubes” interview with Senator Ted.
