My favourite video

This is one of my favourite pop videos of all time. It's really funny and always makes me laugh.
I love their fashion sense and humour.
The group is called "OK,Go" and they're an Indie band from Chicago.
This video has won lots of prizes.
Now I understand what those gymnasium machines are for!

Breaking News!!!!!!

More evidence of Merced teacher's secret life!!

More evidence has emerged that the Merced teacher who calls himself "Gorka" is in fact pop superstar Dylan.

Our chief paparazzi followed him to London this weekend where he went to make a new video.

As you can see he isn't very happy to be recognised by our reporter.

The rock and roll superstar had to escape from his fans when they recognised him . He got into a taxi and disappeared.

Our chief paparazzi found him again and asked him if it was true that he was Dylan, the rock giant, and that he was hiding in the mountains of Bizkaia from his fans because he was bored with so many wild Hollywood parties and girls.
He replied; "The answer to that is blowing in the wind"

Here is "Gorka's" latest video

You can hear the rider blowing a whistle to warn people to get out of the way as he races down the hill!
Watch out for the dog in the middle of the race!

Teacher's team announce counter-attack signing!!!

Breaking News!!!

The Merced sports desk has just learned that the teacher's team is about to announce a new signing for it's annual match against Merced students.
It seems that the teachers have signed Georgie "Best" Ciscar, a homegrown talent, but who spent last year in london clubs, in and around Chelsea, learning his trade as a talented and creative clubber.
Merced teacher's manager, Javi "science can be fun" Martin commented that Georgie's arrival in the team would be very positive and that Georgie's creativity, and the solidity of "Asi Martinez" in midfield would allow veteran players such as goalkeeper Richie "el gato de Birmingham" and Igor "victory or death" Villarchao to feel confident about winning their 6th consecutive trophy.

This is something for the surfers

This is nice. It's a video of the surfing at Waimea river in Hawaii USA.
It seems that there is a river that flows into the sea, but that it is blocked for most of the year by waves pushing sand to make a wall that stops the river flowing into the sea.
Then somebody makes a small hole and a channel in this wall, and the millions of litres of river water come flooding out. Ideal for surfing. the music is cool too.

funny race

A race in which a F1 McLaren gives a big head start to two other mercedes.
David Coulthard is driving the McLaren.
