Even Stephen Fry loves Wagner!

And of course, you must get behind the Wote Wagner facebook campaign, so popular, it has 4 members at the time of posting.

30 Mario Plush Toys to give away over the next 5 days. Yoshi, Luigi, Toad, Koopa Trooper and Mario.

That’s right, following the popularity of our last competition where we offered a collection of Mario Plush Toys as the prize, we have been able to beg and scrounge more of these cute and cuddly characters from the Mario games.

After asking our Twitter followers how we could give these goodies away, we decided to choose 30 individual winners to give everyone the best chance of winning possible. We’ll give away 6 toys each day from Saturday 16th October to Wednesday 20th October 2010. We’ll search each days tweets and select 6 winners from whoever is following us and has retweeted the message below that day.

You can enter each day if you like, and we’ll use a random selector tool to draw entries so you might even win more than once! You have to enter each day though, you’ll only have a chnace of winning if you have tweeted the message on that day.

This is how to enter the competition:

Follow @base_com and then tweet or re-tweet the message below, but replace TOYNAME with the name of the toy you would prefer to win (Mario, Luigi, Toad, Yoshi or Koopa Troopa). We can’t guarantee at all that people will get the toy they prefer, but, it at least gives us the chance of giving someone the toy they prefer rather than selecting them completely at random.

Best of luck to everyone.

Top Gun 2! I am The Goose!

Tom Cruise to have cameo role in the Top Gun 2, the sequel to Top GunComments are a-plenty that Paramount have given the go-ahead to make a sequel to the Tom Cruise Classic, Top Gun. Top Gun 2 or Top Gun the sequel will see our hottest flying Ace, Maverick, handing over the baton to the next Top Gun in what is being reported as a cameo appearance.

The inter-webs are also a flutter with talk of Cruise’s latest performances lacking the pulling power that Cruise has historically commanded as the uber A-List celebrity. His recent release of Knight and Day stalled at the box office being beaten by Toy Story 3 and Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups! Knight and Day is being reported as one of Cruise’s weakest film openings ever alongside Lions For Lambs from 2007.

Does this mean that Tom is finally cashing in the pension? Taking the family jewels that have been in the bank forever and having them valued at the local pawnbroker’s. How many more Mission Impolssible movies can he make and I dont think there will be the same interest for another Days Of Thunder.

Meanwhile, it’s time to look up the Ray Ban site and select a new pair of Aviators while we wait for final filming dates for Top Gun 2. It’ll be a whole 80s revival with Top Gun logo T-Shirts being seen everywhere.

Buy USA Military Issue Aviator Style Sunglasses Mirrored Lens

These are the Top Gun classic sunglasses. No Top Gun revival would be complete without them and if Top Gun is coming back, you’re going to need to have a pair of these before everyone else does.

Be the first to show your Top Gun colours by wearing your Aviators all through winter!

Buy Top Gun for only £5.59
Swot up on your Top Gun Movie knowledge. Learn all of Maverick’s best lines (in fact, learn all of Maverick’s lines) and make sure you are ready to sing along with the classics at full volume and with all the words memorised.

Jamie Oliver – 30 minute meals and his outspoken and driven attitude to helping people eat better.

Jamie's 30 Minute Meals - Jamie Oliver's latest book accompanying his television showThe first showing of Jamie’s 30 minute meals is on air tonight on Channel 4 at 5:30pm. This new series for Jamie comes right in the middle of the UK airing of Jamie’s trip to Huntingdon in America where he used his UK knowledge and experience to try to kick start a change in the way American schools feed their pupils.

30 minute meals aims to show us how mastering a few basic skills and organising the right food in the house can allow us to put a meal on the table in the same time that it would take to prepare a ready meal or some similar pre-processed food.

Jamie is still pursuing his goal of helping the notion to eat better and seems to be the most publicly vocal (or perhaps just the most media-savvy) of the celebrity chefs that appeared on a glut of live and pre-recorded shows last year extolling the plight of battery chickens and the disadvantages of  processed foods.

Ahead of tonight’s airing of 30 minute meals, Jamie has been pinned down by The Guardian for an interview covering all of his recent activities. The interviewer is kind enough to realise that with a new addition to the family still only a couple of weeks old, Jamie is probably a little more blunt and defensive than usual, however, reading the article, you feel that Jamie has passed any point of tolerance with explaining his motives for doing things. He’s making it up as he goes along seems to be his message, but, he wants whatever he is doing to make a difference.

When being questioned on whether he thinks he is beginning to lecture people on what they should be allowed to eat, Jamie shows his lack of patience for such a subject by replying about a woman who was complaining that he would not let her child eat what he wanted,

while she was having a go at me she had the gall to have a baby in her arms feeding it Coke in a bottle, so she’s obviously thick as shit, you know; she was clearly thick as shit, because you don’t feed babies Coke in a teated bottle, and anyone who does is categorically wrong.

You can see Jamie’s 30 minute meals on Channel 4 on the following dates in October and November.

  • 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th
  • 18th, 19th, 20th, 21st, 22nd
  • 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th
  • November: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th

I don’t remember Ron Weasley looking like this! Ron looks hot in new Harry Potter 7 Posters

Remember the first Harry Potter movie? Everyone looked so cute, but, let’s face it, on a scale of cuteness, Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley was more of your big eared, ginger haired, awwwww poor boy, kind of cute compared to Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson’s, so cute you could take them home kind of cute.

Rupert Grint looks hot as Ron Weasley in the new Harry Potter 7 movie postersBut oh, how the tables have turned though.

The latest posters for Harry Potter 7 have been released and Rupert is looking hotter than front-enhancing male underwear. D

Poor Daniel doesn’t come anywhere near as close on the twilight-esque dark broody handsomeness that our new heartthrob Rupert is able to pull off. Even gorgeous Emma Watson doesn’t come out of the grungy dark look photos as well as she usually does leaving Ron looking like the new boy man to watch.

The only other character that can shake a stick at his brooding bad boy good lucks is Snape! Yes Snape. It seems that no one wants cute good guys these days. Sine we all went vampire story mad for Twilight, it’s the darker underdog characters that are winning the girls and the boys hearts.

Perhaps it’s time for Harry to update those glasses, but perhaps that’s an unacceptable comment today, on John Lennon’s 70th birthday!

Are M&S on to a winner with new front enhancing men’s underwear, or have they cocked up?

High Street respectables, Marks & Spencer have been relied on for generations to supply supply the nations men with practical underwear. My grandfather wore M&S string Y-Fronts, my father wears M&S briefs, and, yes, I’ve had my share of M&S underwear too. It’s the British way. However, M&S think that we should have more than just a stiff upper lip.

Marks & Spencer BodyMax Front Enhancing underwear with a front pouch to help shape and enhance your silhouette!The new BodyMax range is M&Ss latest underwear collection and will be hitting their shelves in the middle of October, or, perhaps the great British male will prefer to buy these online.

The trunks are accompanied by a range of body shaping vests and Ts to help make the best out of your upper half with a interesting Before and After shot showing a big bellied bloke with and without the BodyMax vest. One reviewer, John from Staffordshire, on the Marks & Spencer website commented:

It worked really well to reduce my chest bumps but it did make my belly bigger – like a previous reviewer.

M&S are not only concentrating on improving the front of the British male, they also have an option for the rear as well. You can go the whole hog and get the BodyMax+ Bum Lift Pant.
