Tune in, pay up

August 30, 2010

No frills Tune Hotel has arrived in London. Tune are a chain of hotels from The Malaysia and The indonesia, Tune specialize in “five star beds, 1 star price” plus tax, plus towels, plus cleaning, plus anything you can think of.

Basically the room is cheap, but you pay for all the bits you normally expect on top, like towels and electricity, a window (ok, i made the last one up).

The only bit that confuses me is why cleaning is an added extra. Why would you have to pay for cleaning, surely that’s a given. If it isn’t imagine the state of the room if it went a year with no-one opting to pay for cleaning, nice.

Cheap frills and dirty weekends away here.

Christoph Rehage planned to walk about 5,000 km from China to Germany, taking a photo of himself every day for one year—and not shaving once. 

The effects of the walk can be seen in his face and beard. Unfortunately Christoph didn’t complete his journey on foot. But the video more than makes up for it. Have a great weekend everyone.

Trapped in an elevator, living up when you’re going down

April 29, 2008

A time-lapse video of a man trapped in an elevator for 41 hours has become something of an Internet sensation after surveillance camera footage emerged after nearly a decade.
“After a certain period of time I knew that I was in pretty big trouble because it was the weekend,” said Nicholas White the thicko trapped in the lift. Thankfully the 41 hours have been edited to last just a few minutes now, but it just goes to show you what people will watch. This video has over 1.8 million hits on You Tube.
