‘We pat your groin. We see you naked. We’re the doormen to the sky. Why?

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Thursday 15 November 2012

The South American camelid equivalent of Lana Del Rey is on Twitter, and it had us at ‘it’s ewe, it’s ewe, it’s all for ewe’. Boy, does it have a lot to spit out about the fashion world, the music scene and its llama roots. Plus, judging from its Instagram shots, the immaculately-styled Llama oozes just as much old-school charm as its human counterpart singer with the really big lips and really big hair, if not more.

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Thursday 8 November 2012

Everyone needs good PR. Even Darth Vadar, the most evil bloke in the universe with a cloak and helmet head but no helmet hair. Whoever’s behind the Death Star PR Twitter account purports he or she is here to set things straight about the rubbish people say about the Galactic Empire, thus the ballistic tweets like ‘Anakin wasn’t trying to kill Obi-Wan on Mustafar.

First World Problems, read by Haitians

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Thursday 25 October 2012

#firstworldproblems is a popular hashtag that’s never quite gone out of fashion on Twitter. The whining is all meant to be a bit tongue-in-cheek in a ‘poor me, but I’m not really suffering’ way. So when DDB New York got Haitians to stand around in their spartan surroundings and read out first world problems in […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Friday 14 September 2012

Originally set up to promote an e-commerce store stocking horse-themed ebooks, Horse e_books has taken on a life of its own with its steady daily sprout of nonsensical and often oddly interrupted tweets that range from the irate (e.g. ‘TO RELAX WITH FRIENDS HOW TO RELAX WITH FRIENDS HOW TO RELAX WITH FRIENDS HOW TO […]

Curiosity Rover Twitter feed

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Trends on Saturday 11 August 2012

The Curiosity Rover is on Twitter, and uh, this is where it gets tricky: its dyslexic clone is also on Twitter. The Curiosity Rover’s tweets are great in a geeky sort of way (pictures of Mars! hi-res videos!) and it even does some camera-whoring, but the clone, while it has just a fraction of the […]

Zolton Editor

From the ‘what ever happened to’ files comes The Notificator, a short lived robot messenger which allowed users to leave direct messages for people in order to ‘cancel appointments or inform friends of their whereabouts’. To use The Notificator, which was installed in select locations in London in 1935, people would write a message on […]

Gus the Fox Twitter news feed

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Websites on Tuesday 1 May 2012

Astute observations about life (‘Trying to explain what a harpsichord is to a worm. Waste of time”). Escapades that range from the banal (“Feeding gammon to a poorly falcon’) to the surreal (‘Sucking noodles off a whore’s pyjamas’). He’s a bit of a scallywag, this Gus. But you’ve got to love a fox with attitude.
