Just Google!

Can’t remember quite how this started, it was probably a bit like this xkcd, but after an odd series of random links and searches, I ended up googling for ‘google song’ and turned up the song ‘Just Google‘, with words about searching using google, sung to the tune of ‘Beat It, by Micheal Jackson.  Its a bit daft, but some of the lyrics are actually quite clever … “how to milk a camel, how to cut your own hair.  37 years with an electric chair and pictures of a man being killed by a bear – Just Google” …

Its certainly a lot more inspired than this other effort.  Still made me laugh but for all the opposite reasons – this one is just odd.

Of course, songs about Google are not new – take this Cookie Monster song from Seasame Street.  It was recorded some 16 years before Google as we know it came about at all!  Just goes to show, theres nothing really new at all …

Oh, and in case you are wondering, there appear to be quite a number of Facebook songs too.

World of Legocraft

January 10, 2010 at 10:40 pm (internet, kids) (, , , , , , , , , )

Have just seen the trailer for the new Lego Universe virtual world. I’ve heard various things about it over the last 18 months or so, but the final form seems to be some kind of Lego MMO, a Lego version of World of Warcraft if you will, with customisable characters, quests, building, levels and so on. You will also have to pay for it by a monthly subscription. I had assumed it would be more along the lines of, say, Disney’s Pixie Hollow or a Lego version of Habbo Hotal, but it looks much more a gamey than social virtual world.

The trailer is very impressive, but as its a digital film, it doesn’t really give anything away about the actual game.

Still, looks like it will keep Lego fans old and young busy for some time.  For more info, see Wikipedia and www.legouniverse.com.

Nod to Tervicz for the link to the video.
