The most annoying voice in the history of ears.

This is some kind of parental advisory review of the PS3 game Uncharted which is all well and good but HER VOICE. Her voice! Makes me want to punch her in the throat!



Could you imagine living with that noise?

Story from North America.

I love this kind of stuff, the animation is superb.

Film 2008 without Jonathan Ross.

Last year was good to movie-goers, so to celebrate I have done some lists.

BEST MOVIES
There were a lot of great films out last year but I enjoyed these the most.

The Dark Knight
Lived up to the hype and them some, who cares if the plot has more holes than a sponge, when Heath Ledger's Joker is on screen you could hear a pin drop in the theater. Terrifying and hilarious all at once.

Wall-E
I actually got a lump in my throat when Eve watches Wall-E's playback. I'm a sensitive boy.

In Bruges
Odd but brilliant black comedy.

[rec]
Possibly the best straight zombie movie ever made.

Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist
Michael Cera probably shits gold eggs.

WORST MOVIES
Films that should have known better.

Dairy of the Dead
Truly one of the shittest films I've ever sat through. The acting! Ugh! Possibly the worst straight zombie movie ever made.

Indiana Jones
Swinging with monkeys. Indy in a fridge. Shit-munching offspring. Aliens. You chose... poorly.

The Strangers
Could have been an hour shorter, and the end ruined the only cleverness the film had going for it - that the terrorists hadn't actually laid a finger on the couple.

Disaster Movie
You said it.

Zombie Love.

My very first comic.

Did you miss me?

Yeah so anyway I haven't been updating Hello Scum because my shitty HP laptop took it's own life (probably out of shame) but now I have a new, more Japanese laptop that has face recognition and other cool stuff I'll never use. I could have updated using my PS3 but that would have taken actual human effort. This is the first in a splurge of posts - a video of a ninja cat.

Gotta love that O face.

Some great internet animation here, and I've watched the end about four times and still laugh.

The most important video in the history of mankind.

This "alien expert" is a genius, earning money by refusing to answer any questions.



You do, do you? Maybe if you did a little dance and a song about aliens...

Funny YouTube comment:

Where's the remote?!

Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe makes an appearance on QVC.

"I never said it was gonna be a gentile parlour game you titted fucking idiot!"


I bought Charlie Brooker's zombie horror Dead Set on DVD and loved every sweary, gorey and (most importantly) funny second of it. The dialogue especially was hilarious (see post title) with Andy Nyman's Patrick, a fictional Big Brother producer and brilliant anti-hero, stealing the show. Actually if I have one gripe it's that I could have done with more Patrick and less of Ray Winstone's mockney pug-faced daughter - Jimmy or whatever the fuck her name is.
The scenes featuring Davina McCall were surprisingly great too, I'll never hear Mika in quite the same way again. Better than Shaun of the Dead. It just is!

"My anus is bleeding!"

Animator Don Hertzfeldt turns rejected works (what did he expect?!) into a really neat and hilarious short film. I laughed out loud every time "You're watching the Family Learning Channel" appeared.
