“I’m scared of the monster who’s climbed up the stairs… I’m scared by gelatinous goop in eclairs!”
All you had to do was fill in the following sentence.
“…And the award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to_____________________________________[name of movie, actor/actress, etc]’
*tears open envelope*
Liam Deliverance: “The award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to My Fair Lady which robbed Dr. Strangelove (How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) for the best picture Oscar in 1965. The former was directed by George Cukor and was the tale of “Eliza Doolittle”, played by Audrey Hepburn, an over long yarn (almost 3 hours) about a cockney flower seller who was taught to talk proper like in a rags to riches borefest. Dr Strangelove, directed by Stanley Kubrick, was a satirical look at nuclear conflict between the US and Russia during the cold war era. It is a film that is very funny despite the seriousness of the subject matter, it lives long in the memory and is a classic that should be watched by all.”
Clampers Outside: “The award for least-deserving Academy Award ever goes to Forrest Gump’s 1994 ‘Best Picture’ win…. beating both Pulp Fiction AND The Shawshank Redemption…. a travesty, in fairness…. but life’s like that, like a box of chocolates.”
Ben: “The award for the least deserving Academy Award goes to…Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side (2009). I’ve nothing against the film. It’s the kind of movie you would happily sit through on TV on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but it – or its cast – are about as deserving of an Oscar as Coronation Street.”
Yesterday: The Envelope, Please
Originally to be announced next week at San Diego Comic-Con, this fantastic version of the Nolan films Batmobile has slipped out a bit early.
Slated for release in September, this 1,869 piece set is 15″ long and 9″ wide will set you back $199 (about €150).
Despite being around since the earliest days of the web, Amazon still doesn’t have a site in Ireland. You can switch on their currency converter but that only shows the final checkout total in Euros.
Shop Ireland fill the gap by presenting the Amazon.co.uk catalogue with Euro pricing and Irish VAT calculated into the prices.
A semi-finalist in last year’s WebAwards “Ugliest Website in Ireland” category, this ugly duckling is a labour of love for its creator Donovan Hutchinson. It all started off as a little side project to play with Amazon’s affiliate program while sharping his web development skills.
Ten years on, it’s still chugging away while dealing with Amazon’s fickle product descriptions and Google’s ever changing indexing requirements.
No cash, favours, etc. were given for this post. Do you have an Irish site? Get in touch email@example.com.
At 217 x 115 cm and using nearly 23,0000 bricks this beast of a model is fantastic, if a little impractical to compile as a set.
There’s plenty more pictures on the project page.

After teasing everyone with a mostly obscured shot of the new Batmobile from his upcoming Batman vs Superman film, Zack Snyder delivered today with a better shot along with (what we assume is) a bonus Ben Affleck in costume.
The LEGO CUUSOO site seems to simply your childhood fever dreams made real.
This simply needs to be in Christmas stockings this year.
