Steve Jobs, the recently deceased/besmirched tech mogul who once reputedly "declared war" on Android and said that he felt "personally betrayed" by Google, is in for another kicking. This time, Taiwanese comedian and impersonator Ah-Ken has dragged Jobs' memory through the mud in a YouTube advert for Action Electronics’ Android-based ActionPad tablet and multi-language dictionary. Ah-Ken appears in the commercial dressed in the unmistakable Jobs garb of black polo neck sweater and jeans, with ad... [Read more]
Tongues are wagging at the FA headquarters this week, as England boss Fabio Capello resigned amind the John Terry racism controversy and the subsequent stripping of his captaincy. The favourite for the job is Harry Redknapp - a man who just got off with a tax evasion charge and who by his own admission cannot write - thereby cementing England's image abroad as a boorish, lying nation who prefer drinking themselves into oblivion and battering their opponents into a bloody pulp while claiming to b...

We at Live Toast do occasionally write technical posts, just to let all you cats know that we're down with it. Know what a mean, Dawg, DOWN with the kids? In this age of rock-star coders and cookie-stuffing affiliate marketers it's easy to become bewildered by the tech tsunami and assume bloggers like ourselves aren't part of the struggle. But we are. We're freaking NINJAS, biatch, and don't you fuh-fuh-fuh-fuh-reakin' forget it, ai'ght? Haha, juss kiddin' with yer, son. If you were right here r... [Read more]

Men using the bathrooms at a German Rolling Stones tribute museum were amused recently to discover the urinals are actually large mouths with full red lips. The Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band in the World are renowned for their lips and tongue logo, but who expected to be peeing into it? The inspired artworks now confront any bloke getting their ya-ya's out at the museum in Luechow, Lower Saxony, providing a whole new angle on the British expression... [Read more]
If you're a regular revolutionary like we at LT, then you should take a moment away from the front lines* to be astounded, disgusted and ultimately thrilled to learn of a shocking move this week by evil empire Disney. The cartoon powerhouse went a three-toed step too far when they offered Mickey Mouse t-shirts for sale in a design inspired by artwork from a Joy Division album. Joy Division, one of the seminal electro-pop outfits of the 70s and 80s, still enjoy a huge following today, and fans of... [Read more]
I was recently passing judgement on people more successful and attractive than myself (as you do) when the conversation (with myself; I have no friends) turned to Rap bands and "plastic" rappers. Plastic rappers being rappers who either:
i) Talk the talk but don't walk the walk.
ii) Walk the walk but don't talk the talk.
iii) Suck. Period.
I came up with quite a list of lame-ohs, some of which you'll know, some you may not (but will be secretly listening to on YouTube for years to com... [Read more]
Around New Years each year I’m reminded of my impending mortality. I feel like 20-somethings today exist in a sort of purgatory between college and settling down where they’re trying to clutch onto their carefree, waning past with roots firmly planted in a 9 to 5. And I mean I’m practically on the brink of 30.
It’s a time where your drink of choice abruptly transitions from Keystone light to red wine but you still feel the need to prove that you can chug like a pro. Where a raging night out ... [Read more]
For all those Mad Men fans out there, did you know Jon Hamm does comedy? After four seasons as the impenetrable Don Draper it was a surprise to see Hamm exploring his comic side on episodes of Saturday Night Live and scene-stealing recently in the big screen hit Bridesmaids. Universal execs liked the money they made off Bridesmaids so much that they’ve green-lighted another film by director Paul Feig and producer Judd Aptow who are rumored to be considering Hamm for a role. Check out Ha... [Read more]
