Moped

French teenagers put a lot of time, money and effort into customising their mopeds. This one is particularly sweet.

Baby's On Fire

Baby's On Fire





Baby's on fire
Boom
Boom, Boom

Showtime, motherfucker, it's on
Apocolypse now, I'm droppin' this bomb
You can't fuck with this song
I'll stick to this spliff, I'm not klapping this bong
I'm a wild child, I don't wanna go to bed
Oh, shit, sorry man, I'm stoned again
Ooh, now everythings getting so psychedelic
When I'm doos dronk then I forget all my fokken lyrics
Like um, uh, who gives a fuck?
Don't worry 'bout it, just blow a kiss to me
I like danger, romance and mystery
I'm a lucky ducky, get mad shit for free
I rock more bling then Mr. T
I make it look easy 'cause it is to me
My daddy says it's lekker fokken spif to see
A South African cherrie makin' history

Baby's on fire
She's got me going fokken crazy soos a mal naaier
O jirre God se Jesus

Baby's on fire

Hi-Tek, drop that four to the floor
I get real paid, what you think I do this for?
My bodyguard help me get to the bar
Neill Blomkamps makin' me a movie star
A lot of bad boys wanna piece of me
If you're a lucky boy I'll let you sneak a peek
My Zef styles motherfuckin' freaky-deek
I don't got beef 'cause I don't eat no meat
I'm on some other shit, yo, I know I speak unique
Fuck your whole shit up when I freak the beat
I love it when Kimmy talks sweet to me
C'mon, c'mon, Kimmy, Kimmy, speak to me
I take a trip down memory lane
Like yo, fuck fifteen seconds of fame
I'm a young blood comin' up fresh in the game
Yo-Landi Vi$$er, motherfucker, ja remember the name

Baby's on fire
She's got me going fokken crazy soos a mal naaier
O jirre God se Jesus

Baby's on fire

Aaah, freak out!
No need to get so deep
Nothin' quite like a motherfuckin' techno beat
A techno beat - a techno beat
A techno - a techno - a techno beat
Just say what's up, don't try to get so deep
You know me, maar ek ken jou nie
Ek ken jou nie - ek ken jou nie
Ek ken jou - ek ken jou - ek ken jou nie

Baby's on fire
She's got me going fokken crazy soos a mal naaier
O jirre God se Jesus

Baby's on fire

Flame on, motherfuckers

Diva

Diva (1981) - UK and Ireland Movie Poster


This 1981 French thriller is arguably one of the first Cyberpunk movies. The plot centers around information theft with a variety of parties all vying for possession of a couple of cassette tapes and the data contained therein. One tape contains evidence of murder while the other contains the only extant copy of a performance by an opera singer who refuses to be recorded.

Many of the tropes of cyberpunk are present. Technology, data-theft, Yakuza type gangsters, Mirrorshades, a geeky protagonist, an attractive side-kick and a psychopathic punk killer.

The central character, Jules, is a mailman - a similar role to protagonists, YT in Neil Stevenson's Snowcrash and Chevette in William Gibson's Virtual Light. He is a solitary Otaku character, comfortable with information technology and obsessed with a reclusive opera star.

It's a very stylish movie and can be difficult to follow. It's not actually a sci-fi movie but does have a futuristic feel to it and towards the end, it shifts into a Moebius-like fantasy.

It seems to me to that William Gibson, Neal Stevenson and Katsukiro Otomo (Akira) may well have seen it and been inspired.

In any case, there's a fantastic moped chase through Paris - Which is the real subject of this post...

WTF?

In desperation, I've committed some pretty appalling crimes against the principles of good engineering. But I'm struggling to imagine a set of circumstances that would make this seem like a good idea...

SBM - Wild Blue Yonder


Screaming Blue Messiahs



A very good friend of mine said son
Dance to the moonshine
Dance to the gun

Me and the boy had some fun
Well we danced to the moonshine
Danced to the gun

And now that all that killings done
Dance to the good cash money son

Cus I know I believe
Country air is the only air
That's fit to breathe

And all the things that I can see
Breaking up all around of me
Falling away

And I can't see that star
And I can't hear that thunder
I wonder just how long we'll be
Out in the wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder

I thought I was right
But I must have been wrong
Danced to the moonshine
Danced to the gun

Me and the boy had some fun
Well we danced to the moonshine
Danced to the gun

And now that all that killings done
Dance to the good cash money son

Cus I know I believe
Country air is the only air
That's fit to breath

And all the things that I can see
Breaking up all around of me
Falling away

And I can't see that star
And I can't hear that thunder
I wonder just how long we'll be
Out in the wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder

And I can't see that star
And I can't hear that thunder
I wonder just how long we'll be
Out in the wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
I know I was wrong
The wild blue yonder
But I must have been right
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder
Go an live the Italian life
Leave your children
Shoot your wife
The wild blue yonder
The wild blue yonder

Head out for the country life

I thought I was right
I thought I was right

Britten

This is probably the most awesome thing ever to be knocked up in a shed.

Check out the video to see how an engineer from New Zealand out-engineered all the major motorcycle manufacturers. Highlights include using buckets of water from a fish-pond to quench a freshly cast cylinder head, and pulling a wheelie alongside a flat-out Ducati 851. It's exciting stuff and very inspirational.

It also features some awful 90's fashion and a cobalt blue and pink colour scheme...
