My Favourite Things: June 2012

NOTE: This article was originally published by me on

Hey guys! This month saw me take my first real vacation in about 3 years. I was actually away for 15 days of this month so my internet time was exactly halved. As a result, this month's list is slightly shorter than usual. But I think I still found three nuggets of gold for your eye holes so take a look and know that I'll be back to my usual length next month... ladies.

1) Bill Murray's Hall of Fame Speech

 I'm not a baseball fan. As an Irishman I guess it's just not in my blood. But I am a Bill Murray fan. It doesn't matter where you're from, you should be able to love Bill Murray.

What you may not have known about him is that he actually owns a baseball team. He co-owns the Charleston RiverDogs and due to his long service to baseball he has recently been inducted into the South Atlantic League Hall of Fame. And as he says in the video, he's never been inducted into a Hall of Fame before so he had to accept.

Murray is a genius of the highest order so if you give him a podium to make a speech, you know it's going to be good. He didn't write anything for it, he just got up and spoke about how much he loves baseball and it's every bit as good as you think it would be. Take a look.

2) Paul & Storm - Write Like The Wind (George R. R. Martin)

We here at FRED love Paul & Storm.

Well... we love Storm.

They have just released what is to my mind their first proper music video. Hopefully the first of many more to come. The song is about the agony of waiting for the next Game of Thrones book and the video is as ridiculous as you might expect from the duo.

3) Super Mario Street Art

This is a really cool time-lapse video which shows how artist Chris Carlson creates a 3D looking image on the sidewalk with just chalk and a ruler. Two bonus cool points go to the art being of an 8bit Mario and the awesome music added to the video.

After seeing how he does it, I almost feel like I could give it a go too but I know that it would just look like a 5 year old attempted it.


And that's it! My favourite things of the last month.
