Half Map Half Biscuit

A map of everywhere mentioned in a Half Man Half Biscuit song. Genuis psychogeography.

4 chan

Chris Poole, a.k.a. moot, is the creator of 4chan.org – the Washinton Post explores how come he doesn’t make any money.  Something I can associate with.

Black dog on my shoulder

Following on from the warmly received post on the happiness of various cat food models, it’s only inevitable that I should be looking at dogs next. After this, who knows. I did have a look to see whether the fish on the fish food packaging looked happy, but they’re a bunch of cold-blooded emotionless bastards. […]

The quiz that wasn’t

Uploaded with plasq‘s Skitch Twestival in Birmingham was so packed with fun that I don’t think anyone got time to do the quiz that I’d prepared. So, I present it here – no entry free but you can still donate to Charity:Water if you like. It’s here as a PDF: twestival quiz Why not have […]

Radio Free Horse Shit For The Garden

Have the look of the band of 2009 – as imagined in a British film from the early nineties. They’re various old punk scenesters playing the future Jesus and Mary chain. The set is straight from Jude Law’s forgotten dystopian master-work ‘Shopping’ – desolate monolithic council flats rumble bass and flash neon. They’ve only got […]

A thought about Twitter that is a bit longer that 140 chars

This is likely to be incoherent — which is why, despite it being about social media, it isn’t over on jonbounds.co.uk — I’m trying to define why I (amongst others) are starting to worry that we’re falling out with Twitter. I’m not going to attempt to explain stuff, just have to dump this out of […]

Stephen Fry stuck in a lift

Uploaded with plasq‘s Skitch! Stephen Fry is stuck in a lift. Now will this cause Twitpic as much touble as the plane in a river? TwitPic – Share photos on twitter
