Seen a few belting Street Fighter videos and memes recently and after buying Marvel Vs Capcom I thought I would look at the best Street Fighter memes going.

Short and sweet. Still none of them stand up to Van Damme.
And on that note,
till next time,
So new year has passed and all hail 2013 as we hurdle into its third week. Im pretty glad 2012 is over. Not that it was a terrible year, really it was a bit meh. Movies this year have been pretty good but I honestly only remember coming out of 2 or 3 thinking “I would really like to see that again”. Fern Cotton also deemed this a glorious year for music on Christmas day Top of the Pops. Total pish. Music this year has been pretty poor. The Killers and Muse had new albums which failed to reach the bands past heights and as far as new music goes there was not much to write home about. Thankfully, due largely to Netflix this year has been ace for TV shows. I have been able to catch up on shows I had never seen for one thing. Like about 80% of the people I know with Netflixs I started watching Breaking Bad for the first time and Dexter. This year also saw new sitcoms “New Girl” and “Don’t trust the Bitch in Apartment 23” which were excellent and the not to excellent but “It has its moments” How to be a Gentleman (staring Johnny Drama/Kevin Dillon).
Ok, so now I will give my _____ of 2012. These might not have been made in 2012 but hey, this is my blog and these made my year!
Film of 2012
This was a really easy one in the end but I will quickly go through notes of intrest. Way back in January
The Gray came out. A film where basically Liam Neeson kicks the crap out of wolves (See here). Really enjoyed this film and thought it one of the better this year. There were alot of disappointing films at the start of the year to compensate. “Haywire” was a utterly underwhelming offering, “This Means War” was just terrible and the “Dictator” did nothing for Sacha Baron Cohen’s reputation.On the upside there was “The Muppets” and “21 Jump Street” to keep things ticking along until SUPERHERO SUMMER where my number one sits. So it was a time for heroes and we got them in abundance, The Avengers Movie was nothing short of amazing. Great story, Great action, an all round amazing film but not my #1. “So its Batman?” you say. Nope. Another brilliant film but I had my issues with it (especially the ending) so is not top of the pile. “John Carter? The Expendables? Surely Ted doesn’t count?” Your right it does not, My number one film of 2012 is……. Dredd.
I loved everything about Dredd. It looked cool, its plot was really simple, the pacing of the dialogue to action was perfect. Essentially Judge Dredd and partner are lock in at the bottom of a massive tower block and need to get to the top to get out. Only problem is that everyone in the building wants them dead. There is more to it than that but not much more. Another plus point is that it is one of the only 3D films I have seen that was made better by the technology. My #1 hands down.
TV show of 2012
There have been alot of great shows this year. As said above I have watched a host of excellent dramas but this year has been brilliant for sitcoms. I was losing faith in sitcoms, with the wealth of British offerings drying up due to the “give over rated comedian his own show” sponge. But this year i have see some great comedy. It has helped as old favourites such as “30 Rock” and “Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia” have been bang on form and the new arrivals mentioned in the intro have added something fresh. Even hidden gems like “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret” and the unmissable “The League” have brought a smile to my face. This year also marked the end of Limmys Show. It is a poor decision by the BBC to keep giving Russell Howard so much money than he knows what to do with it and pulls Limmys brand of off the wall comedy. Anyway to my #1 for TV is another series which has ended this year. Armando Iannucci stunning “The Thick off It”. I can only assume you have all watched this and if you haven’t, come on, sort it out. The satire is brilliantly clever and is perfectly mirrored by the eloquent strings of profanity from Malcolm Tucker. I personally love Armando’s work and if you haven’t see “The Armando Iannucci Shows” or “Time Trumpet” then give them a try.
Music of 2012
Ah. Well. This could be tricky. Music this year has been disappointing to say the least. If its not Dub step or songs about Equestrian Eventing (I assume from the actions?) then theres not been alot of noise made about anything. Music has been quiet this year. That said The Hives were on Jools Holland at new year so at least it ended well! I suppose my album of the year was actually relased late 2011 but I never got hold of till last year. It is Los Campesinos! – Hello Sadness. Great album, will add a track below and for more on them head here.
Oh and I suppose my Song of the Year is this below from Bloc Party.
Internet Thing of 2012
Butterfield. Last year you stole my heart. www.peterserafinowicz.com/brian-butterfield/
Well that will do. Like 2012 this is not the best, maybe slightly rushed but hey! Lets get on with 2013.
Till next time
A look at Weebls-Stuff.com and my favourites from the site.
Weebls-stuff.com is one of those sites that I have been checking daily since I started using the internet and as the site celebrates its 10th year I thought I would give a little salute to a site which has given the world so many memorable characters and songs. The site was created by Weebl (Jonathan “Jonti” Picking) and not only showcases his own animations but those of Peabo, Skoo, ZekeySpaceyLizard and Wonchop.
Probably his most famous creation is Weebl and Bob. Two egg shaped weebles obsessed with pies, that have small haphazard adventures. Other series on the site include “Catface” and “On the moon” (both below). Weebl is also famous for is one off songs which often make it on Itunes in the shape of novelty albums. Early examples like Badgers and Kenya have been watched by millions and have also been rehashed into animations like Somalia.
Despite the novelty songs weebl has created his own “Gorillaz” style anamated electro band called Savlonic.
So enough waffle, these are my top 5 weebl videos!
Basically I think Narwhals are ace therefore really like this song. Also I ran a birthday party at work where two of the kids were singing this song so it gets in the top 5.
4. On the Moon
On The Moon is one of the recurring animation weebl stuff. It currently has 23 episodes and stars “The Toast King”, “Insanity Prawn Boy” and “Moon Hitler”. Makes more sense if you watch it (Well slightly more sense!)
3. Look at My Horse
This is probably my favourite tune that weebl has come up with. Also has a really good cover version by The Nerd Follia.
Catface is another of Weebl’s stuffs long running recurring animation. Here I have posted a video of the story of episodes one to seven. I does miss out the “Silly Catface” inspirational educational message at the end but you can see these if you watch a non mashed up version from the site (Link at start).
1. Rotate Your Owl
This is by far my favourite song EVER! enjoy.
So there is a wee look at Mr. Weebl and his magical world (Which also includes Magical Trevor!)
Till next time
