I thought you guys might like this video from over at my place:
Hopefully it works, you might have to sign in to see it since they have put an age limit on it. Great video though and actually an ok song…
Rihanna’s racy new video ‘S&M’ has reportedly been banned by 11 countries and faces an age restriction on YouTube. The video, which depicts the 22 year old popstar dressed in latex and whipping a man, has already been axed from the BBC’s daytime radio playlist in the UK, reported Mirror online.
“We are waiting for an edited version before deciding whether it will be played in the daytime,” said a BBC spokesperson. The song’s suggestive lyrics and the accompanying video has led to it being flagged as inappropriate for users under the age of 18 by YouTube.
YouTube users are split on the video, with some claiming that it is close to being pornography, while others say that Rihanna has grown up and this video reflects her healthy attitude to sex.
Quite a superb ad about the pleasures of voting, I think I will vote next
year as well now this one did get banned from the spanish TV…
This is the wonderful scene involving the most extraordinaire vampire-vixen, Salma Hayek. (German dubbed but who cares 🙂 )
This is just soooooo cool… I noticed that I can’t get the video to show the year and number of the asteroids so click on the ‘Watch youtube’ to get the full picture if you are interested.
Video Created by Scott Manley, this is a view of the solar system showing the locations of all the asteroids starting in 1980, as asteroids are discovered they are added to the map and highlighted white so you can pick out the new ones.
The final colour of an asteroids indicates how closely it comes to the inner solar system.

This is actually really interesting talk about why we measure a nations success on productivity — instead of by the happiness and well-being of its people. He introduces the Happy Planet Index, which tracks national well-being against resource use. I was suprised that the latin countries did the best on this… Apparently Costa Rica is kicking ass.
1949 TV commercial from Camel cigarettes. I actually had a doctor who smoked more than two packs a day and was trying to get me to stop smoking while standing outside his clinic. Was quite a surreal conversation puffing away discussing how to stop smoking 🙂
Beatles George Harrison and John Lennon mess around and proceed to advertise their cigarettes in the tv style of the 60s
Think I will start a new tradition and show some of the old TV commercials for cigarettes, there are so many and since I got most of them on my bookmark page I thought I share them with you all. It’s quite a fascinating look of how we looked at cigarettes back then.
These Salem ciggies even comes with "Softened with fresh air."
Just being blown away with this video of two of my favourites…
