The incomparable Tim Minchin. Saw his show in Reading last year and it was fantastic. If you don't know him, look up his genius comedy songs on YouTube, there's loads there. Also here's a link to his brilliant sceptical rant/poem 'Storm':

Very excitingly, an animated movie is being made for 'Storm', which is looking superb - check out the production blog for more info:

Brilliant theoretical physicist and string theory genius Michio Kaku - check out his many books and TV shows on physics. A great scientist and communicator.
This will be part of a cool project I'm working on for a bit of fun which will hopefully be ready in a month or two - keep 'em peeled :)

Well this was loads of fun and a lot of work as it turned out! But, the good news is it was only started Thursday afternoon, and I did the staff today to finish it. If I'd need to I could have finished yesterday easily but I had a commission to finish also. That's not bad speed for me, definitely getting quicker.
This was inspired by the excellent and very funny blog Science, Reason and Critical Thinking by Crispian Jago. Specifically his post about the Pope the title of which I won't repeat here - check out the blog to find out what it is!
Might add more to this yet though, I've been trying to think of something funny to put on that big white hat of his but haven't come up with anything good enough. And maybe some frilly knickers around his ankles too...
I like that if you didn't look closely this might look like a fairly respectful caricature of Herr Ratz :)
