The first couple of series used Greek letters; they were accused of being pretentious and deliberately changed them to something even more pretentious - Egyptian hieroglyphs.

To be fair, aside from that the ad (for Maynard's Discovery Patch sweets) is pretty good; nicely animated and voiced in a very natural way, reminiscent of Creature Comforts.

Anyway, well done to Ping - I've...

Ironically, the Pounds to Pocket ads have now become more annoying than the ads that their smug executive is "rejecting".

"It's good for repetition!" - too bloody right.

The Sword of Gryffindor is technically the same thing as basilisk venom; it's only because it was impregnated with the venom that it was able to destroy horcruxes. In and of itself, it can't do that.

Cable picture overscans and cuts off edges

It looks like a lot of VH1 Classic's programmes have moved over to VH1 - this probably means that MTV Classic will be a dumping ground for "Classic" (read: about two years old") MTV programming.
