Back in a previous post we saw just how fantastic Microsoft’s marketing department really are – by suggesting we throw a party in their honour. Well, as we sat on the other side of the Atlantic, sipping tea, waxing our moustaches and laughing at the utter absurdity of the whole affair, people over here in the US were actually taking part in the celebrations. The Bakery’s US counterpart, Miss Miranda Gerzon, took it upon herself to do some first hand experiential research by attending one of these parties. I have never had so much fun, in my entire life! The new Help features of Windows 7 really excited me and you should have been in the room when Josh sent an email – the atmosphere was ELECTRIC! Miranda Gerzon, 2009 Ok so the above, may be a complete mis-quote made up by me but she was rather happy with her free Windows 7 bag. Which she now uses mainly to carry around her Macbook in. Oh, the irony.
I’ve decided, aside from Alaric’s Aryan jawline and the fact that I look Chinese from the back, The Bakery’s just not ethnically diverse enough. I think I’ve found the solution . . .
While not strictly a pretty film, interesting use of typography or piece of scathing satire, I thought everyone might enjoy Richard Dadd’s favourite BBC South East journalist reporting from Canterbury’s own Marlowe Theatre… Roman ruins unearthed by builders Take note of the cool timelapse!
PIXAR studios have announced their next big CGI blockbuster will be an animated biopic telling the true behind-the-scenes story of the rise of The Bakery. A spokesman for PIXAR said “we are all just so in awe of those guys. When we brainstormed ideas for our next picture, we realised there was really only one option. And with unprecedented access to the minutes from all Bakery meetings, we know we can tell the true story of what goes on.” A preview of “A Canterbury Tale – The Rise of The Bakery: A True Story (working title)” is available below . . . Personally, I think it’s all far too in-jokey . . .
Watch this everybody. Click LAUNCH THE SHOW and click the sheets of music on the stand. The BBC should have made it easier than that, but trust me, it’s worth it! Thanks to my father for pointing this beauty out.
