Today is Friday 7th August, tight trousered tap rocker Bruce Dickinson's Birthday. Happy Birthday Brucie.

Iron Maiden-The Trooper.

This Hitler sketch has had many comedy incarnations, the latest subtitle wheez is in a BMX styley. Any body got any good films to do a Dirt Office sketch with?

The astonishing 3D murals painted on the sides of buildings by a trompe l'oeil artist.

Kind of topical one this. Near UCI World Cup round#6 finals in Monte Sainte Anne there is a hydro electric damn and tourist attraction called Les Sept Chutes, I popped up there took some photos and wazzed them on the webber. A keen canoe fan saw them then sent me this video of a guy called Steve Fisher "canoeing" off the falls. Sketch-a-mon-doo.

This can only happen in Russia. Actually I think it's about time we did a Russian road trip.

Alex Rankin posted this lovely film on his website. It's all shot with a Nikon D300.

Remember your highway code? Mirror, signal, manoeuvre. This guy doesn't get past the "mirror" bit. I think he's a bit OCD.
