Isn’t it interesting how marketing for has changed on the internet, especially car adverts?

Viewing tips: sound is preferable; clear desk of all liquids/breakable objects, not suitable for under 12s or lily livered chicken shits those of a more gentle persuasion. You have been warned.

Did you know that I’d dumped Brad Pitt?

You didn’t? Go read kiwifruit‘s a blogroll fairytale [thanks to Sarah for pointing it out].

Not much bloghopping this week, partly due to a dodgy internet connection, partly a heavy workload. And I’m feeling terribly uninspired link wise so just I’ll leave you with the following, brazenly stolen from Other People’s Blogs:

the ghost – this freaks me out, I had to click away. There’s more from Mr & Mrs Wheatley but I’m too chicken to investigate [via flubber]

web song (funny even if you don’t know the tune of Home on the Range)

We’re off to see la belle-mère tomorrow later today (although she’s neither belle nor very mère-ish) so I might use the resulting foul mood to find out more on this more of this story via Kimberly.

The Blog Fiction Thang, update 4

Thursday, May 20th, 2004

Richard over at Lost Pilgrim has written a wonderful entry – I’ll let him tell you all about it:

Last week I was trying to put together an entry for Daisy’s competition to write a blog entry in the style of someone famous when I stumbled across an ancient document amongst some family papers. The document was written in old English and appeared to be a fragment of a much longer piece. Since then, I have been assiduously translating this mysterious manuscript into modern English. Having finished that work, I am now able to reveal the only surviving entry of the blog of Harold, onetime Earl of Wessex, King of England during most of 1066 and the last Anglo-Saxon King.

With such sterling work coming in, I reckon we should keep this going a while longer, what do you think?

Reading a post of e‘s reminded me of this poem and my intention to find the author. I haven’t googled it yet but a double bill of ER is about to start and I’ve yet to wash up after supper so I’ll update later.

What sort of rock music are you?

Thursday, May 20th, 2004


Garage rock! I like you… I like you a lot! You and indie are on the same plane for me! You bring rock’n’roll down to its dirty roots, whether being minimalist like The White Stripes or retro like The Strokes. You keep on doing what you’re doing! Oh…and did I mention I like you alot?

What genre of rock are you? [via lovely Billy]
