Hello everyone, are you enjoying this lovely Sunday? I hope so. Well I’ve got lots of lovely links for you all to help you with your day anyway.

I declare today Coldplay day (sorry non Coldplay fans), If you’ve not heard their brand new single you can listen here.

Now everyone (including us in the UK), can download the single from itunes (consider this a reminder Mr C!). Yaaay! What a summery uplifting song.

Did you see Dr Who yesterday? Christine did, here are her thoughts, what did you think?

We also got to see a great French Open finals tennis match between Li Na and Francesca Schiavone. We live commented it and everything!

Today, Christine is back with more FBFB joy today for the mens final. It’s going to be an exciting match between Federer and Nadal. I can’t wait. I hope you’ll join us in the comments!

Today is also an exciting day for everyone’s favourite ex champion! Jenson and his girlfriend Jessy are taking part in the Blenhiem Triathlon. If you’re local to the area maybe you could pop over and show your support. Either way I’m sure we’ll all send them our best wishes!

Okay, now onto some arty links.

• We often try to make our art work look like photographs, whether this is a correct approach to painting/ drawing is a debate for another day. However a very clever photographer Barbara Cole has found a technique using Polaroid film which makes her photographs look like paintings! No photoshop or anything!

• Ever a fan of surrealism, here are some wonderful photo manipulations for you to enjoy.

• We all know that our grandparents are superheros, but here you can see that Sacha Goldberger has captured how!

• It’s Sidepodspace and Sidepodart all rolled into one, love it!

• If you’ve been in the comments these last 5 months you’re probably realised just how in love with Berlin I am following my study trip there in February. Well here you can see some of the amazing architecture I was fortunate enough to see first hand.

• By far my favourite advert has to be the Sony TV Ad with all the bouncy balls falling down the hill. I’m sure you all remember it. Well some very lucky photographer was on hand at that amazing shoot to capture it. Have a look at their limited edition prints here.

That’s about it for today I’m afraid. I hope I’ve given you enough to keep you entertained for the day. I’ll see you in the comments!

    Hiya matt.

    I'm gonna go for Nadal to win today I think, just for his record on clay despite Federer's beastly beating of Novak.

    Nadal - Spain - Whiney Alonso.....

    They're not repeating '09 in a hundred years - but this was more tedious than usual.

    Silverstone next week, hopefully that'll be a better one. On during Le Mans though.

    I'm off out to see relatives now, should be back in time for Giggles Radio.

    If you don't like tennis remember there's plenty of tin top stuff on today.

    Amy, I never realized that you are such a harsh critic of 90's music, however I still think you can run (as in away or flee, rout) FROM THE MUSIC a bit faster by swinging your arms forward and back in the natural movement of runners, not at your sides with you hands squishing your ears.... :P

  • Jordan F105/06/2011 at 13:04

    Oh good. According to the dive's shop schedule, 4 pm BST would have had me underwater in Barrie looking at shipwreck. That would have been not good as I could not listen to Giggles Radio live.

    Managed to wheel and deal a dive with them for a dive later in the day after giggles radio. A different wreck in a differnent lake, not not seen by myself or my gal....

    Now if only Giggles can only play the 1983 song that's picked for Christine, Amy and Lou, it would be smooth sailing...

    But aren't we in 1984?

    1) When you figure out why I picked this song for those the people, it is a good laugh, and I think the song managed to be on the hit charts in 1984, so still fits....

    2) Giggles did not play it in the 1983 show. Goes to show what a good year 1983 was for music when Giggles did not even play Axel F .........

    3) My DeLorean is in the shop getting ready for the summer months, so I can not back to the 1983 show to chance the line-up.... :( At least, not now....

  • Eric the baker05/06/2011 at 13:13

    Hmmm. No audio?

    Odd, it says it's at 3-4% volume. Can't figure out how to change it.

    But are you seeing decent video?

  • Journeyer05/06/2011 at 13:14

    But are you seeing decent video?

    Looks decent enough to me. A bit low on the fps, but it does ensure it streams properly on slow-ish connections like mine.

  • Journeyer05/06/2011 at 13:14

    Yeah, I will. I just installed their streaming software about 10 minutes ago. Dyyno. and still figuring out how to use it.

    I had no idea that they used the fuel to cool the engines the way they do. That is incredibly clever and presumably the pre-heated fuel burns better and gives out more energy too.

  • Alex Andronov05/06/2011 at 18:48

    Don't panic - nothing bad happens in this comment :)

    Hey everyone. Sorry for the last minute cancellation earlier. As a surprise guest on the show today we were due to be joined by Katherine. She was sitting next to me ready for the stream to start when we decided instead that we might need to visit the hospital!

    Katherine was worried that she hadn't felt the baby moving for quite a while. We thought the show would be noisy and distracting which usually works, but KatherIne suddenly decided she was too worried to present a show - which was fair enough! And then we decided we better check what was actually going on.

    Of course the moment the monitoring equiptment was attached. The baby started moving and basically hasn't stopping moving about since! Phew!

    Just thought you'd all want to know nothing bad had happened :)

    Wanted to host it's own radio(gram) show. A show off that likes to make practical jokes? I think it must take after Katherine ;) (is this right -Ed)

    It was the 1984 show so I guess we can make a nice little conspiracy theory

    If Giggles, Jr kicks that often that Kat is more worried it not kicking, it could be a good sign that Giggles, jr wants to be a drummer in a band....

    Especially if it is the left foot kicking.... those cymbals are really flying in a few songs....

    ah good to know its all okay :) my friend who was pregnant at the beginning of the year had that happen to her twice. freaked her out so much! but poor bubba was just sleeping :)

    So THAT's what happened! We'd just walked away from Maggots and Becketts and heard there had been drama over the PA. Blimey! What was Mucke doing to retaliating like that?!

    He isn't known for being the cleanest or calmest of drivers, but that sort of action is just terrible.

    It's arguable that that kind of action kills people. Absolutely appauling driving.

    Brake testing is sort of looked down apon in circles F1, Lou. The big trick is to thread Champion's wall chicane in Montreal flat out lap after lap.....

  • Steven Roy05/06/2011 at 19:09

    The original move was moronic but the retaliation was insane. He should get a two year ban for that.

  • Jordan F105/06/2011 at 19:16

    Well, I guess I will be seeing everyone later.

    Giggles, glad to see that everything is all right with Kate and Giggles Jr.. If you can move Giggles Radio up an hour and a half, you should be able to clear the START of the Canadian Grand Prix next week by a good mile. Might even do the European Fans a favour by lessing their expose to EJ in the pre-race show...

    We do not have pre-race shows here in Tundraland.....

  • Adie05/06/2011 at 19:21

    Oh dear.. but it would work just to call it a Nintendo seeing as it's such an identifiable name.

    Have seen lots of stuff about Nintendo Beem too, especially as nintendobeem.com is owned by Nintendo it seems.

  • Wietse vB05/06/2011 at 20:33

    Very nice documentary. Although I never grew up with his commentary (not from the uk..) but having seen a lot of footage/races with him commentating over the past years I must say that he really added excitement to it. And what a lovely man as a person. The bits about his relationship with James Hunt and that commentating was actually not his proper job stood out to me.

    Yeah, as soon as I posted it I wanted to take it back. I'm surprised his leg wasn't injured on that back wheel, or a host of other things that could happen when you jump out in front of an F1 car.

    i *think* so. JB's best mate Chris Buncombe raced in the Tri this morning with him and the team and then later popped down to Silverstone to support Chirs' brother Ali. By Chris' tweet it sounded like they all popped down to Silverstone. not sure if JB was with him but they usually travel together.
