“This is Houston. Hit the left button”

Ricky Gervais has started a blog for the sole purpose of annoying his baldheaded idiot-muse Karl Pilkington. Well worth a look, but possibly even better is this animation of one of Karl's Monkey News bulletins from the podcasts.

The guy who did it gets a CV-busting endorsement from Gervais, who writes: "You have to see this. This is the one of the best animations I have ever seen. This guy should win awards. He hasn't just animated it, he's added to the comedy. I was honestly blown away by the style and attention to detail. Please tell your friends. Joost Reijmers - whoever you are, you are a genius, and I would work with you tomorrow. (Well not tomorrow, I've got to get some new sweatpants and have a hair cut). Brilliant."

Hear, hear.

How could you not let a monkey fly to space again if it gave you that look?

It was really nice to read the content.
The electric power that runs our homes with such convenience is a necessary part of our everyday lives. Some homeowners are quite handy at taking care of the small projects such as replacing an old ceiling light fixture or rewiring a wall receptacle. But for the most part, any projects that involve electricity is best lest to a professional Houston electrician, .
