SkyEurope to open new Bucharest-Prague route?

Posted in Aviation, News by Teo


Just a rumor. No official confirmation.

And another two unconfirmed news/ rumors – also no official confirmations:

Jul 11, 2008: SkyEurope will cancel Sofia-Prague flights during winter months (this probably makes sense if they intend to move the flights to Bucharest)

Jul 2, 2008: SkyEurope Airlines to operate weekly from Israel to Bratislava

Strejnic Ploiesti-Romania Airfield is a grass airfield for light and acrobatic planes. Here student pilots do their training on the first year at Romanian Aviation Academy.

On Strejnic is also an important skydiving center (the only one from this part of Europe where you can perform a jump in tandem with a trainer from a height of 4000m, for just 120 euro and an additional 30 euro fee – if you want the jump recorded on camera – no previous experience or training required)

Nothing up her sleeves

Posted in Fun, Video, Weird by Teo

I’m sure most of you have seen it, but for those that haven’t you can check out the amazing, comedic styling of Ursula Martinez, the Stripping Magician.

This short piece called Hankey Pankey combines a handkerchief trick and magic act with striptease and was filmed at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in 2006-2007 in Montreal. She should have invited someone on stage for the last bit to find that red cloth.

Ursula Martinez is a London based Anglo-Spanish writer, performer and cult cabaret diva noted for her use of nudity and non-actors. Her father is British and her mother Spanish. She has worked with experimental theater groups Forced Entertainment, Insomniac Productions, The Glee Club, and Duckie. In the 1990s she began to combine this with her experience in cabaret, establishing a reputation in the queer arts community.

The Theme Music is “A Shot In the Dark” (Pre-Pink Panther films) by Henry Mancini.

Be forewarned, there is nudity. Don’t watch it if you’re easily offended.

Do you want to see from a new angle – pictures of your dog licking himself?

Pet's Eye View

Called, the Pet’s Eye View, this tiny camera on your pet’s collar will let you see through the eyes of your cat or dog while they tour the neighborhood or while you’re away.
