The 24 Days of Christmas – Day 17

December 17, 2009

As we all know, Christmas is fast approaching and as we all also know, many of you will be struggling to think of interesting gift ideas for your nearest and dearest. ‘What shall we buy to show our love?!’ we hear you cry. Well, fear not, for we at the Fold know that sometimes, thinking beyond the usual DVD boxsets/smellies/Xbox games can be a little difficult, and so over the course of December we endeavour to bring you a new gift idea each day on the run-up to Christmas, totalling 24, and with each one we shall also bring you an accompanying song that somehow represents the gift in some way. ‘Gift ideas and related entertainment?!’ we hear you now crying! ‘How on Earth do they manage it?!’

Day #17 – Frankie Boyle Tickets.

Ingesting Frankie Boyle’s comedy is for me, a guilty pleasure. His shocking and downright horrible humour satiates the beast within. You know, that itchy, grumpy little bastard that would love to slap people that walk slowly, berate teenagers that piss about on the train as if everyone is in on the joke and kill idiotic celebrities in fantastically ironic ways. No? Must just be me then. Nevertheless, listening to Boyle’s jokes and tirades are a cathartic experience in the same way S&M must be for Eton tutors or Formula 1 bosses.

Having made Mock The Week what it is, Frankie is now focussing on his solo career. His DVD, Frankie Boyle Live was very well received and cemented his status as one of Britain’s most outspoken comedians. It was so successful that even writes for The Sun now for god’s sake! Although I can’t say I approve.

Next year, the Scottish comic will embark on a new nationwide tour. All the details you need can be found here. We’ve got ours already!

And now, with a music choice that would undoubtedly piss Frankie off, I present to you Frankie Boyle look-alikes The Proclaimers, performing their seminal hit, (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles.

The 24 Days of Christmas – Day 14

Day #14 – Freeloader Pro

Technology as we all know is becoming more and more advanced and subsequently, more taxing on the battery life. There’s nothing worse (okay, famine) than having that classic tune fade into obscurity just before the drop – leaving you bouncing around aimlessly like a deaf chimp. Well never again! Grab the Freeloader Pro, attach the relevant adapter and look for the sun.

Here is a little overview:

Freeloader Pro is the ultimate solar charger capable of powering virtually every electrical device, anywhere in the world, whether on a beach, a mountain, jungle or the Polar ice cap.

Freeloader Pro uses its high power solar panels or USB (cable supplied) to quickly charge its internal battery (7 – 9 hours in sunny conditions). Once fully charged Freeloader Pro is capable of delivering enough power to give a mobile phone 70 hours of standby time, 5000 page turns on an eBook or a 100% full charge for a digital camera battery.

Also by switching its Multi voltage switch to “9.5v” Freeloader Pro is capable of charging power hungry, high voltage devices such as MP4 players, portable DVD players and SLR camera batteries.
The metallic push button “Power Halo” indicates how much power is in Freeloader Pro’s battery.

Made in tough aluminium and finished in a stylish “piano” black, Freeloader Pro is the perfect companion for adventure travellers, journalists, explorers, expeditions, the armed forces and anyone who demands the best!

For those intrigued; you can pick it up right here.

And for your viewing pleasure today, Missy, Nicole Wray and Mc Solaar. Remember this one? Zig Zag Zig Zag….
