Links are cool.

Thank you, Doctor. Who is that man? Why, it's Giggles! Doctor Giggles, that's Who. No, it's giggles, that's Who. Who is Giggles? Yes. Yes he is.

What a great way to kick off a Friday, right? You can even see how Doctor Giggles became the Doctor in this exclusive to DVD Daily extra of Giggles making that excellent contribution. Links are cool! Just look how cool these links are on this lovely Friday:

Paddock News

There's nothing wrong with using Hedgehogs - Peter Sauber yesterday had a bit of a defensive moment for his choice of Pedalo over Gutierrez at the Canadian Grand Prix as people are still well confused why the reserve driver wasn't... well, a reserve driver. Maybe Peter feared he'd become a reverser driver falling backwards down the grid. Seems experience was the name of the game and you can't get much more experienced than Pedro's 36 returns to competitive F1 racing.

That's quite the graduation you've got there - You can't get much cooler than this for a placement whilst being a student. Matt Cruishank here is doing a year placement with Red Bull and may even get a place with the team following it, I assume he has to impress the team with an inane task and then go into a boardroom where one of them will get fired /siralan. I mean, it is very cool though and a sign of what the F1 in Schools program is indeed doing for the sport in reaching out to the younger folk with their hippety hop.

Watch out Bernie, he still crashes into people defending positions - Of all people to come out and defend Lewis the Ecclescakes of the Bernie variety has told people to lay off Lewis for encouraging overtaking and doing what the fans want. There's no doubt Lewis is constantly wanting to win races and overtake wherever he can but probably be alright if he didn't go calling his colleagues stupid and being like a kid sometimes. But, interesting words from the walking mop.

Elsewhere

Maybe Christoper Biggins can unlock Biggin Hill - We have a new guest post contributer - welcome Daniel Shires! Huzzah! And what a fab way to kick off your Sidepodcast guest posting ways with an interesting collection of thoughts regarding the restrictions of the F1 archive down at Biggin Hill that Bernie seems adamant not to release to the world. There's some excellent points and comparisons to how other companies make the most of their archieve footage so give it a read, especially if you've seen Senna and enjoyed the footage included in it.

So many pixels I may turn into a pixie - Man, this is pretty damn cool. Have you ever wanted to see Sevilla in about five billion megapixels or something? OK, so it's 111 Gigapixels, and giga is like even more mega than mega, it's double mega and 11 is triple 11 kind of so that must mean this whole thing is absolutely triple mega awesome. That makes sense to me. But check out the incredible detail you can see on this panoramic view of Sevilla as well as how cool 111 gigapixels are!

I believe Williams started in the exact same way - if like me you're an absolute sucker for management games like Sim City or Rollercoaster Tycoon and are a fan of iOS games, you may know of the brilliant Game Dev Story on iOS and Android. The guys behind that fantastic little title, Kairosoft, have brought out totally out of nowhere Grand Prix Story! Awesome!! It's only currently on Android right now and there's a free Lite version available to give it a try but yay for a simple but addictive racing management game!

Itsy Bitsy Links

Time to chuck together some little bits to end Friday on, because links are cool. Doctor Giggles says so.

Do you fancy trying to win a trip to the next FOTA Fan Forum to frolic in the fun of the forum? Fantastic! Send in a question to the email in Joe's post and you might be there pointing and laughing at James Allen. As for me, I've been really getting back into Smashing Pumpkins lately especially Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness which is just a sublimely made album and probably their best in my humble opinion. What music are you guys digging at the moment? Feel free to share in the comments. The BBC have an article just trying to work out just what on earth Bohemian Rhapsody has going that makes it so love, my thinking is that it's just so awesome that the human mind can't comprehend what makes it so magical. Finally, what if numbers actually had character? Totally digging the bumblebee for 0 and 5's Mr Duck but not so sure about the leek for 4!

That'll do me for another week I think. Have a lovely day and hopefully the weather will cheer up a bit and we'll all have a fantabulous weekend too. Good luck to Kat who is awaiting the arrival of Baby Giggles to the world at any moment too! If the above video is anything to go by, he's in for a fun ride. I'll see you guys in the comments.

    It's such a distinctive smell isn't it? I knew the smell before I pressed the button for the first time. This was nowhere near enough to make it really bad... but I immediately cast my mind back to a school play where the dry ice made me choke and I flubbed a line. I hadn't thought of it for years until I was about to press the button and then I almost didn't.

    But I have to suffer for my "art".

  • Alex Andronov17/06/2011 at 00:00

    I showed the video to Katherine earlier and she looked at her tummy and said, "that's your father, the loonie".

    "A GOOGLE homepage doodle posted last week honouring guitar legend Les Paul has cost the world $268 million, despite only setting the internet giant back a mere $15,000, Extreme Tech says.

    Extreme Tech says the amount covers 10.7 million man-hours in lost productivity, assuming the average Google user earns $25 an hour."

    A fair proportion of those 10.7 million were probably me :D

    if the weather stays the way it has been for last few days Mr Alguersuari will need a boat rather than F1 car tomorrow unless Red Bull will cover the road in the style of Mercedes pop up grid tents :-) the Montreal rain of last Sunday was just a mild shower compared to the deluge here

    Francorchamps (Bus) --> Verviers (Train) --> Liege (somehow find hotel)

    Ended up having to settle for a hotel 50 km away from the circuit.

    Oh right. I couldn't find a place to stay close to the circuit that was vaguely reasonable price. Everywhere seemed to be only booking for five days - it's the 24 hour race y'see, so the weekend starts a few days before the race itself

    Aye but I'm going to be there to cover the F3 races for the site, so I don't really need to be there for the duration.

    I'll be hanging around for the 24 Hours, but just as a spectator this time.

    How long before Kolles buys them out?

  • F1Wolf17/06/2011 at 09:59

    almost ready for Friday night out wondering where will the Red Bull F1 entourage show up ...

  • Leigh O'Gorman17/06/2011 at 10:01

    How long before Kolles buys them out?

    I don't think he will. Kolles is more of a "holding" manager - he'll keep them up and afloat (by any means necessary) until someone picks them up.

  • F1Wolf17/06/2011 at 10:05

    I don't think he will. Kolles is more of a "holding" manager - he'll keep them up and afloat (by any means necessary) until someone picks them up.

    Kolles probably will not but he may get the team to stage when it will be interesting for some investors. I mean they are obviously overachieving now, they are one mix weather race away from 10th money earning place in the championship ...

  • Leigh O'Gorman17/06/2011 at 10:06

    they are one mix weather race away from 10th money earning place in the championship ...

    Not forgetting they actually brought some fairly significant updates to Montreal too

  • F1Wolf17/06/2011 at 10:22

    Not forgetting they actually brought some fairly significant updates to Montreal too

    but realistically they can afford to bring updates like that once in many races (2-3 times a year) while Lotus is now doing it on for almost every race. But for Lotus being a second second and a half faster may mean nothing unless they convert it in points or some 11th 12th places, otherwise one more lucky result in high attrition race may cause them the 10th in constructors ...

  • F1Wolf17/06/2011 at 10:23

    ...may cause them the 10th in constructors ...

    ... may cost them ...

  • Leigh O'Gorman17/06/2011 at 10:25

    but realistically they can afford to bring updates like that once in many races (2-3 times a year) while Lotus is now doing it on for almost every race

    I think Hispania are more concerned with qualifying with no problems and staying ahead of Virgin right now.

    But for Lotus being a second second and a half faster may mean nothing unless they convert it in points or some 11th 12th places

    Absolutely, but looking at how Williams, Toro Rosso and Force India are doing, that may not be that far away.

    one more lucky result in high attrition race may cause them the 10th in constructors

    To finish 1st, first you have to finish... or alternately 10th...

  • F1Wolf17/06/2011 at 10:34

    Absolutely, but looking at how Williams, Toro Rosso and Force India are doing, that may not be that far away.

    they are not far away but still far. look at the practice sessions or qualis - you always have either Force, or STR or Williams posting some top 10 time, so their car can find such pace. Lotus can't yet, they do not seem to able yet to find that extra speed. Plus the lack of KERS ...

    True... a lack of KERS. Did they ever put on a working off-throttle blown diffuser? Dodgy power steering...

    I think Lotus did but so did HRT, surprisingly. that's why BBC commentators were talking about the ban probably not happening now that all teams have it. FIA still going ahead though. so those who were extracting less from it may benefit more from the ban ...

    Ms Dulko isn't playing doubles with Flavia, Flavis is instead playing with Schiavone.

    So many doubles teams are playing with non-regular partners who just happen to be from the same nation as them. Olympics practice anyone? :)

    ohh Christine, something i hope you'll be pleased with me for..i finally decided to rent Back to the Future from itunes as i've not seen it and am watching heaps of films at the moment. It says it's going to take a day to download (i hate my internet) but i'm finally gonna watch the film you're always talking about!

  • Eric the baker17/06/2011 at 13:43

    Okay, since we're talking about spending money, perhaps you lot can help me decide on how to spend mine.

    (first the expensive option) I was hoping to come to the UK from the US next summer for Goodwood and Silverstone. However, my sister who was hoping to come with me, has bowed out for family reason.

    (next the more reasonable option) Or I could go to Austin for the US Grand Prix. Spend a lot less money, and still have a lot of fun.

    Thoughts?

    (first the expensive option) I was hoping to come to the UK from the US next summer for Goodwood and Silverstone. However, my sister who was hoping to come with me, has bowed out for family reason.

    Would she be able to come with you another year?

  • Eric the baker17/06/2011 at 13:46

    Would she be able to come with you another year?

    Most likely, yes. She wants to do this with me, especially since we were discussing coming over on one of the Cunard ships, and flying back after.

  • Leigh O'Gorman17/06/2011 at 13:47

    Ooooohhh.... that reminds me. I need to sort out Goodwood revival tockets

  • lou17/06/2011 at 13:47

    Thoughts?

    is going to the Austin GP next year and then heading over to the UK for Goodwood/Silverstone in 2013 (don't kill me Christine) an option?

    Not unless I hit a lottery sometime between now and next summer.

  • Christine17/06/2011 at 13:50

    From a totally selfish point of view, more on-the-ground reporters at faraway events are awesome. But the trip with your sister sounds worth waiting for.

  • lou17/06/2011 at 13:50

    Not unless I hit a lottery sometime between now and next summer.

    ahh... then i suppose the question is how long can you wait to see F1 in the UK. Goodwood is a wonderful festival to go to, i'll be heading back for my 4th year this year, but Goodwood will always be there. Plus Silverstone wont be going away any time soon either...F1's return of a US GP may be something you'd rather not miss?

  • Christine17/06/2011 at 13:51

    That's a good point.

  • Amy17/06/2011 at 13:52

  • Eric the baker17/06/2011 at 13:54

    F1's return of a US GP may be something you'd rather not miss?

    Yeah, I really started to get an urge to do it last week when someone else (forget who) was talking about driving down from Colorado to it. Since my sister bowed out of our trip next summer, I think that is what I will do, the Austin trip.

  • Alex Andronov17/06/2011 at 13:56

    Awesome! I hope you like it. Don't tell me if you don't :)

    Maybe Lou should watch them in reverse order... That would be like proper time travel... actually this is a stupid idea.

    A third of #olympictickets were bought by people in London, a third by people in home counties. Only a third by rest of UK

    What are the home counties? Is that like 'near London but not actual London'?

    240 seems a little high. The First Fleet landed in Australia in 1787, that's only 224 years ago. I'm pretty sure it took a couple years after that to start transporting.

  • lou17/06/2011 at 14:26

    i don't think he applied for Olympic tickets (not that he told me anyways!) think it was a joke with everyone who got their olympic ticket application rejection emails today (like me! :( )

    The only reason i know it was 1770 is because there is a place in queensland called the "town of 1770". where he stopped to repair his ship after a storm

  • Amy17/06/2011 at 14:51

    It's also not a very flash car for an F1 driver. The ones we saw at Spa were a bit more posh, and were driven under security into the paddock itself.

    Not too uncommon. If it's some sort of hire/rental that they had available. Those get moved around a lot, across state and provincial boundaries. But, if it was a deler that is cooperating with the company, I'd think they'd have dealer plates on the car.

    The Moomins do tend to just wander around needlessly but they do have a lovely intro so it's a tough choice.

    another exmaple of my childhood battle wierd thoughts - Fireman Sam vs Postman Pat. One I still can't decide.

    Another great one. I'm gonna go for Fireman Sam on this one, he is a fireman after all. Although Postman Pat appears to have a helicopter now, which might give him an advantage.

    Postman Pat has a helicopter?

    I could understand another cat to go with jess. I could understand his red van being replaced with a Ford Sierra. But a helicopter I simply refuse to acknowledge!

    that is a total waste of taxpayer money.

    My nephew is a huuuuuuge Fireman Sam fan and he doesn't give a fig about Postman Pat.

    His favourite thing to do with Fireman Sam is to tell everyone who they are going to be, then act out the scene that he wants us all to do, then we have to sit down and pretend like we are watching the scene that we have just acted out on the television and we have to all laugh and gasp at the action. So I say Fireman Sam.

    I'm just impressed he can get out of bed so quickly and into his job within seconds. Beyond impressive turnaround time there.

    Lukeh... I forgot to mention last night a) thank you for including the video in the daily... and b) your comment about Smashing Pumkins actually made me go and listen to Soma from Siamese Dream. I really like both of those albums... Tough choice...

    Siamese Dream is a really good album too, can see where the toughness would come from there. But Mellon Collie just tips it for me :)

    I think this could be our relative ages at work... I don't think I could pick between them though...

  • Alex Andronov17/06/2011 at 21:31

    For a random tune tangentally related to this... Melissa Auf der Maur of Hole then of Smashing Pumpkins and then of her own solo career. Hardly anyone ever seemed to hear her solo stuff... I always quite liked this track:

  • Alex Andronov17/06/2011 at 21:34

    I know I'm just talking to myself here... but that song sometimes makes me think of a female led Foo Fighters (depending on the Foo Fighters era of course).

    Oooooh nice! Although I agree with the top comment, it definitely has a bit of a QOTSA feel going :)

    Not a bad thing at all though! I'm not a big fan of the Arctic Monkeys but their new song has the exact same thing for me, has such a mean Queens of the Stone Age vibe to it and it's ridiculously addictive. I know they've worked with Homme before though.

    I do like a bit of Alex Turner as it goes... In all his guises... but haven't had a chance to check the new one out.

    I'm really tempted to give the new album a listen based on that single alone which is terrible really as you go into an album expecting it to sound like the single then :)

    I just love the really heavy, sinister bassline the single has. Feels like a nice departure from what I think of when I think of the Arctic Monkeys, their normal sound or what I perceive to be their normal sound I've never really been fond of in all honesty.

    Did you like Last of the Shaddow Puppets? The sound was quite different... But one I really liked.

    Talking of music, went to see Senna movie today, (which blew me away, amazing) and theres a song thats played when he's celebrating his third title, and I've spent hours since then looking for that song because it fitted the movie perfectly at that point, and I also want it.

    Found it on youtube
