Number 89 - Already we are nearly mid-way through December. I haven't even started my xmas shopping yet, that is saved for next Friday - cutting it close, I know, but I'm just not ready yet! I have friends that did it all in October!

Saturday, December 01, 2007

Number 88 - Wow! Decemeber already. I'll be Easter 2008 before you know it. Well done for getting the last one Paul, I wonder if Mr. Merton himself saw it? This one started in my head as being simple, as most do. Get ready for a xmas special later on this month!

Number 87 - Sorry for a bit of a break between posts. I've been to Madrid which has the best underground transit system in the world - in my opinion. Clean, cool, on time - fantastic. €20 for a week's unlimited travel - thats £15!

Tuesday, September 04, 2007

Number 86 - The last one didn't fool you for long - I was hoping that you might thing it was Lisa Kudrow with Rambo's body. Maybe this one will take a few attempts to solve.

Monday, September 03, 2007

Number 85 - Facebook is rapidly taking over my life; its a great way to share files and talk to my friends. One video gem I recently shared with my good friend Captain Kent is a clip of a cartoon based on Chuck Norris. I really thought this was a piss-take of the 80s style (done very well by Garth Marenghi's Darkplace). Great stuff.

Number 84 - Wow, that last one took nearly a month; and what a month it was! Floods, no power, no running water... and now everyone has plenty of free bottled water and everything is back to normal. We avoided most of the actual flooding, but a mate from Gloucester isn't going to be able to move back into his house this side of January!

Monday, July 02, 2007

Number 83 - Has anyone else been taken by the Facebook buzz? Its fair to say that when I'm at home I'm addicted. Who would have ever suspected that knowing that my friends are up to nothing would be so interesting? Anyway; hopefully another easy one to keep you occupied.

Monday, June 11, 2007

Number 82 - The BBC has added an 'Also in the news' section on their website to host the more entertaining and bizarre articles from across the world. A cat with 26 toes, a man in a wheelchair stuck to the front of a truck and another man marries a goat. I think the BBC is trying to target the varial campaigners hoping that people will forward them to friends, or post them on their blogs - tshh.. good luck 'beeb!

Thursday, June 07, 2007

[Revisited] Sorry, once again work has taken priority, hence this repost (the first in a long time!) Easily another top image. Quick survey - Who watched BB just because of the controversy? also - Who calls Southern Comfort 'So Co'?

Saturday, May 26, 2007

Number 81 - No words today.

Monday, May 21, 2007

Number 81 - Sorry for #79, maybe I was a bit to 'out there' for my own good - I'm proud of this one though. I can't wait till next week - my new phone arrives! I'll be scanning the specs of various models this week - I welcome any advice.

Monday, May 14, 2007

Number 80 - We'll leave 79 for a bit; even Steven Seagal couldn't get it right. Some good guesses tho. Hope you are all well - here is a nice easy one to warm you up to 79! Come on - you can do it?

Sunday, April 29, 2007

Number 79 - I went to a Fortune Teller last week - initially I was sceptical; but within seconds she knew some of my most personal details. She said I would have 4 kids; not all my own! I recommend her if you are in Cheltenham - Maureen Ryan - her link is on the sidebar!

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

Number 78 - This is another one from the brain of RoD. It is quite tenuous, and I don't know whether you'll get it. If you do have a guess, please state how you got there; cos he had to explain it to me!

Thursday, April 12, 2007

Number 77 - I often find the most simple ones the most tenuous. Enjoy! I've been watching The Apprentice avidly the last few weeks; such a great show. Does anyone else think that there are far too many characters that blend into the background a bit too much? Good tactic?

Thursday, April 05, 2007

Number 76 - Ok, when I said 1.00pm, I meant 2.30pm. Sorry. I forgot I'd be taking lunch around 1ish. Best of luck with this delayed one! Thanks to my flatmate RoD for the concept!
Hello! A new image shall appear here at 1.00pm today! Get ready for the next NAME THAT TUBE!

Wednesday, March 28, 2007

Number 75 - Thanks for sticking with me for the last couple of very busy weeks. I really should give you a live date for the next one; so it really is a case of who gets it first, not who sees it first. Things I hate right now: Fergie's New Song (bland) and not having Skins on anymore (boooo!)

Friday, March 23, 2007

Good News - I've decided to stop the sponsored ads as the supplier was getting picky. If you've seen my Steven Seagal blog you'll see that I always tried to relate the product to the action-film star and his daily life. I'll only do them now if they offer large amounts of money; cos it bothered me how much these paid-for posts were cropping up. So if you do see an advert on this site; they really want to be there! Let me know your thoughts!

Wednesday, March 21, 2007

Number 74 - I'm back after my £10 total loss on the races. Nevermind - it was a good atmosphere. I'm getting into Facebook now; if you are on it, look me up, I'm Creased Badger (don't ask) - and add me as a friend.

Wednesday, March 14, 2007

The Races Day 2: After bumping into a group of kind Irish gentlemen last night, I'm tempted to have a flutter on Shirley Casper in the last race of the day. Any other good tips out there?
[This is a Sponsored Post] So the races are on, but what about after this week? Where do you get your gambling fix? It has to be poker. This site has a huge selection of poker tables with free delivery on items over $100. They also have a massive collection of poker chip sets. Thumbs Up.

Tuesday, March 13, 2007

Number 73 - Already I'm £7.50 down from the festival. No luck with Straw Bear - damb you Johnny Vegas! Thats the last time I take a tip from a man who advertises tea! Try this one whilst I sulk...
Cheltenham Festival kicks off in around 4 minutes - Good Luck to you call if you are having a little flutter - I certainly am! I have a £1 accumulator for 'Hide the Evidence', 'Fair Along', 'Straw Bear' and 'Little Brick' to win. I could stand to win over £1300! Feel free to leave any tips, or your bets for me to keep my fingers crossed for!

[This is a sponsored post] I'm all about consumers learning about their rights and taking big companies to the cleaners. www.extendedwarrantyinformation.com highlights Extended Auto Warranty details, and lets you know the truth. It's like the big Overdraft Fee debate; can you claim them back? We need a site like this to tell us the facts.
[Revisted] Its late; and a crap movie is on... this time it's 'I STILL Know What You Did Last Summer'. Please ITV, please bring back Quizmania; it's mind numbingly good AM viewing. This is a lovely classic for y'all.

Wednesday, March 07, 2007

[This is a Sponsored Post] If you fancy leaving the rat race of the city (not necessarily London; Gloucester or Leeds perhaps), then visit Dialaflight for Flights to Johannesburg and Chicago to name just a few. There is a fare to New York from Gatwick from just £120 (inc Tax) - which sounds unbelieveable. I will go!

Sunday, March 04, 2007

Number 72 - Back to this little beaut! Its rain on the cards in good 'ol Cheltenham today. I'm off to the Football League awards later - sponsored by Carling, so hoping for a few beverages and maybe a hangover tomorrow!
[This is a Sponsored Post] It'll be summer '07 sooner than you think (which is hard to digest when you look out of the window). Out come the t-shirts, shorts and of course - sandals. If we get anywhere near the heat we had last year, i'll be investing some hard-earned cash into some rainbow sandals.

Saturday, March 03, 2007

[Revisited] Another quality image from the archive. Just a quick reminder that Borat is out on DVD on Monday; and I recommend it. I'm just seen the new Bud advert. Bouncy floors? No lager would open without massive spraying after even the faintest shaking.

Friday, March 02, 2007

[This is a sponsored post] Going back to talking about Cheltenham Races; there is a lot of buzz for the main race; The Gold Cup. I'm a firm believer in not betting for the favourite; who this year is Kauto Star. I made a tidy sum last year on War of Attrition, but will probably stump for something like State of Play; or something with tidy odds. For more info on the festival visit http:/betting.betfair.com/horse-racing/cheltenham/.
This isn't an entry for Name That Tube, but just a pic that I took on a recent trip to London using my mobile. I feel it captures the rush of the platform and the still/quiet aspect of the train really well - which is good cos normally the photos this thing takes are a bag of balls.

Thursday, March 01, 2007

[This is a Sponsored Post] - I love Cheltenham, its been a home to me since 1999, and is a beautiful place. Later this month is the Gold Cup takes place at the racecourse, and I can't wait. The atmosphere is immense, and St. Patrick's Day always crops up on the big day! I only do horse racing betting during the Cheltenham festival; and Betfair have one of the lowest commisions out there, so they get my vote. Be sure to check back for reports from the festival, with images on my other blog!

Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Number 72 - Ok, I'll leave 71 for a bit, maybe it was a bit too abstract? Back to the old' skool system with a brand new image for you. Jim - I'm timing you.

Thursday, February 22, 2007

Number 71 - This is another post where you have to guess which station is in the photo. Why is Hollyoaks so depressing? Can't anyone be happy? Judging by todays episode on E4 (tomorrow's channel 4 episode) says 'no'.
[This is a Sponsored Post] All things that should have wires that technology has bred without; facinate me. I've seen mobile phones with wifi earphones so that you can listen to mp3s without wires everywhere. Secure networking wirelessly is breath-taking. The places you can be whilst securely surfing the net; the garden, the pub, the tube; the posibilities are endless. I have a wireless internet connection at my flat, and I can't imagine ever going back to stoneage wires ever again. Cisco can help out with all of these things and much more. We have wireless games consoles; what is the next wireless barrier?

Wednesday, February 21, 2007

Number 70 - Its a brand new post! Once again this is a new slant on the 'Name That Tube' game. This is a pic I took on a recent outing with the station name deleted, but which is it? You can click the pic to make it big. See some of my other phone snaps here.
[This is a Sponsored Post] As far as my finances go; I'm quite lucky. I've got a nice job that I love, and it pays me well for my experience. If I needed a loan, or wanted a credit card (I don't personally believe that you would NEED a credit card), then I would look for all the advice if could get about the best deal. When it comes to rates, interest, payments etc... I know nothing. www.creditloan.com is able to help with this and more, including bad credit credit cards and debt consolidation. They even offer advice for us folks here in the UK.
[revisited] This is one of my favourites; it took ages to think up, a while to find the image; and a few minutes to 'shop together. Then Jim steams in within a few seconds and gets it first time! Typical! You could humour me Jim! Say Shepherd's Bush or something!
[This this a Sponsored Post] I don't think I could ever wear contact lenses, I have a complete phobia about touching my eyes. If I had to wear glasses, I don't think I could switch to lenses; the whole idea just seems alien. Lots of people use lenses every day; but the entire concept frankly scares me!

Monday, February 19, 2007

Once again number 69 is back to bother you. Its quite easy. I hope in some way that the site breaks up your busy day with a slight bit of relief. Thanks for reading.
[This post Sponsored by Brookstone] What a great new idea; a Wireless Outdoor Speaker! I'm always bothered by earphone and speaker wires getting in the way, and having to move furniture to install them. You can connect this nifty gadget up to your MP3 player or Ipod and take the speaker any where in the house - it's even waterproof, so take it outside if you prefer. I think i would just keep it around the house, I hate having to have to plug my speakers up in the lounge, or move them back to my room - this solves everything! Except world peace.

Is Graham Norton funny anymore? When he was on Channel 4 he seemed alot more funnier, and now he's on the beeb, he's lost it. Reminds me of Eddie Murphy, he'd rip the piss out of Bill Cosby for doing family orientated films, and now Eddie's doing Daddy Daycare Centre. How did I get from Graham to Eddie so easily?
[This is a Sponsored Post] I don't understand too much about mortgages; apart from the fact that I hope to get one, one day. I've seen the One Account adverts that say that they have a revolutionary system that will shrink your mortgage. Basically, this debt of a mortgage is combined with your current account, so that your salary is offset against it reducing it over a period of time. You can also put anything lef tin your account at the end of the month towards your mortgage; shrinking it with no penalty fees. Plus they let you take payments breaks. Sounds good to me.

Sunday, February 18, 2007

Number 68 - Here is number 68 again, can anyone guess which station it is.... cos I'm not GOing to start handing out clues willy-nilly. I hope everyone had a good weekend. Did you see the rocket on Top Gear? Awesome.

Saturday, February 17, 2007

[This is a Sponsored Post] - Pay Per Post is a great service. It pays everyday bloggers like you and me cash (via Paypal) to pitch various products and services through sponsored content. Personally i have made over $200 in just over a month from the site, which is around £120. Not alot you might think, but you can do it in your spare time and takes minutes to do. Start to earn money from your blog, as long as your site has been around for over 3 months and has over 20 posts (with no more than 30 days between them). You get paid once the post has been live for 30 days. A friend of mine actually met the founders of PPP recently at London SES, and said they were nice guys; they had flown all the way from the states to talk about the PPP service. Apparently over 1500 UK bloggers are signed up; and some bloggers around the world have made thousands.

I've found the service very easy to deal with; and I don't feel that the posts draw from my blogs main issues, and means that my blogs are starting to pay for themselves; and are adding to my beer fund.

Thursday, February 15, 2007

Number 69 - Ok, We'll leave the last one for a bit; no one had a crack at it, I'll try posting it again in a bit. Here's a new one for you guys. I'm really liking watching SKins at the moment! - top TV.
[This is a Sponsored Post] I hate web searches that fail to bring back relevent info (are you listening Yahoo?) Watch 4 a Job realises this; when you want to search for a job you actually specify what you want, and lets you know when its available. So instead of searching loads, just go to the page for jobs in Somerset, or jobs in Birmingham for example. You might want to really push the boat out, and look for jobs in Gloucestershire. As their website says; "If the job you want is here we guarantee you'll find it. - If it's not we promise to tell you when it is."

Monday, February 12, 2007

Number 68 - This is a special post as you must guess the station from the satellite photo on the left. The clues are there for you. I'm on location Tuesday/Wednesday, so I may be away for a while.
[This is a Sponsored Post] If you are looking to start a business, then getting the Business Loans you need can be a pain in the ass. ARF (Advance Restaurant Finance) places short term, working capital loans for small to medium-sized merchants in the U.S. The beautiful thing is that the interest you pay is tax deductable.

Sunday, February 11, 2007

[Number 67] - Is anyone else getting bored of Deal or No Deal? It's a great format for a game, and Noel Edmonds does an amazing job; but its losing its edge. I find myself only turing on to watch the last 15 minutes - its when the best stuff happens.

Friday, February 09, 2007

[This is a Sponsored Post] Why not visit Florida? I can give you 3 very good reasons. 1) They speak English, so no need to learn a new language or speak like your talking to someone deaf. 2) There are loads of theme parks, Disney World, Wet and Wild, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens, and the Epcot Centre (but you don't have to go there). 3) The Pound Sterling is very strong right now, approximately every £1 equals $2. If you fancy going, check out these Florida vacation rentals, where you can find a property in what is affectionately know as 'America's Wang' - Florida.

Monday, February 05, 2007

[Number 66] Whilst I'm talking about awards; its the Oscars soon. I'm not so keen on the hype surrounding DreamGirls. Where is Casino Royale, or Saw 3? Bah! On a completely different note, how did Chicago lose the Superbowl??
[This is a Sponsored Post] How awesome would your own Poker Table be? You see them on TV, then you play on the dining room table. CardRoomSupply.com has a fine selection of poker tables, with free postage on tables over $100. They also feature some pretty fine chips and playing cards.
[Revisited] The Brits are coming soon; I'm just watching some of the nominees. I predict a couple of nods for Lilly Allen and Razorlight. I really want The Feeling to do well, I love their song 'Rose'. I think my friend KT would kill me if I didn't mention Paulo Nutini.
[This is a Sponsored Post] I went to Egypt early last year, and enjoyed it a great deal. It was a wonderful place, and extremely cheap. One place that I didn't get to see is Dahab Egypt, which looks amazing with long beaches and captivating blue seas. I must go again, but get in line; New York is first.

Sunday, February 04, 2007

[Number 66] This is the current post, which may remain for a couple of days as I start my new position tomorrow, so apologise in advance for any delay in updating. Wishing you all a happy week filled with much success.
[This is a Sponsored Post] I don't know much about calling cards; but wish I did. Frankly it excites me to be able to talk to people anywhere in the world clearly and cheaply. With Pingo's prepaid calling card service you could save up to 90% on international calls. For example, my cousin lives in China, so check out Pingo's China calling card rates, or just get some information about how it all works. Its something to do with getting a toll free card, and inserting the number you require. I might just call the US and find out how the Superbowl is going... Indianapolis Colts 6-7 Chicago Bears.
[Revisited] - Ugly Betty has to be one of the best things on TV right now. Despite Channel 4's criticism is the press recently; they are pioneers of UK TV. They have made ground-breaking shows such as Supernanny, Skins and Derren Brown's stuff, not just repeats like their competition. Rant Over.
