The trailer for Bridesmaids understates the comic genius of the film. If you haven’t seen it yet, I implore that you do. Especially for Chris O’Dowd.

This t-shirt is amazing.
Threadless have done it again with this Doctor Who-inspired masterpiece, designed by Rosemary Travale.  If somebody wanted to have this delivered to my house, I certainly would not object.

Yes, it’s the boys from Wakefield trying to be Queen & David Bowie.  I like it.

Where were you on the 10th of June?
