Inbox: the week on the webADAM ROBERTS
It's been a bad week for paperboys, but a good week for amusing internet links. Here are some of the best below. Spoiler alert: no mention of the Budget.
1. On Wednesday Google posted up what has to be their best Google Doodle yet, a working virtual Moog synthesiser in honour of the 70th birthday of its inventor Bob Moog. Here's a collection of some of the best tracks made with the doodle, with my personal favourite below.
2. I'm still coming down from the joy I felt at seeing Ian McKellen AKA Gandalf on Sunday, so here's something with a little culture: Battleship, by William Shakespeare.
3. I spent a lot of time while watching The Avengers worrying about the real-world implications of their hijinks, buzz-kill that I am. Thankfully someone's taken the time to look into the cost of the destruction of New York depicted in the film's climax. Turns out, it's heaps.
4. Why are scam emails written in broken English? The answer may surprise you.
5. Radiohead's OK Computer and Kid A in 8-bit. Of course I love this.
6. Movie Simpsons - a Tumblr clarifying film references in The Simpsons. Part of me feels like this is cheating somehow, but it's nevertheless a fun jaunt.
7. Bonus! Will Smith performing the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme backed by Take That's Gary Barlow.
It's pretty funny, have a look.
