Via the inestimable Mr Wallis.
In case you missed it, the super secret new side-project has finally gone live. Nick and I have wanted to do this for a few years. I registered the domain recently and we quietly hacked an instance of WordPress in our spare time last week to get something usable in place. Today, shewentofherownaccord.com is a […]
Ze Frank recently linked to a wonderful Web 2.0 parody song/video called ‘Here Comes Another Bubble‘ by an a cappella group called The Richter Scales. It’s brilliant. I particularly like this moment from 1:36, with Scoble being used as the backdrop to “blog even if you’re wrong”. Much as I enjoy it, I would make […]
Ironically, given that he claims that “the internet is destroying our culture”, I keep noticing Andrew Keen thanks to the web. I missed an opportunity to hear him speak in London last night. (And how did I hear about the event, before and during? Twitter, of course). The evening was, to put it mildly, not […]
And to think that people still doubt the moon landings ever even happened. In fact, just this week a few of us at work were debating this very issue over lunch. To put all our minds at rest, let’s enjoy these vintage photos, which John Tolva pointed at recently. No doubt the simulations of the […]
Ze Frank’s glorious experiment with a daily video podcast called simply The Show is coming to an end. To celebrate a glorious year, here’s what you’ve either been enjoying, or missing, … 03-17-06 – “jessica simpson loves bush, neverland, iraqis buy fruit, google scalia, bill gates, one laptop per child, origami” – It all started […]

Maybe it’s because I’m a geek, but for me ‘Running with Scissors’ was mostly notable for ‘The Saga Begins’ and ‘It’s All About the Pentiums’. His latest album, ‘Straight Outta Lynwood’ feautures a wonderful parody of Chamillionaire’s Ridin’, in which […]
BoingBoing, Waxy, even Slashdot carried the story; Jon Stewart (my favourite commentator/comedian/journalist) appearing on CNN’s Crossfire [transcript] ostensibly to promote his new book, managed not to mention the book and opted to berate his interviewers instead. [More mirrors] “Stop, stop, stop, stop hurting America.”“You are partisan, what do you call it, hacks.” Although this is […]
Mil has a girlfriend. They argue. He wrote (hilarious) anecdotes about their arguments. Then he became a Guardian columnist and then wrote books. Now he no longer updates his website. The moral of all of this is hard to fathom. He can really write though.
Hasselhoff’s music finds large audiences in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. David has released over 30 albums, many of them going ‘gold’ (i.e. selling over half a million copies). His music is also favoured by those with the most extreme of eclectic tastes. Released in 1995, this one is an absolute jem. His vocal range is […]
