I AM A MASSIVE BLOG SLUT



Yes yes I am. I just can't get enough. I have to spread it around. Et cetera. I am doing a brand spanktastically new blog for Venuszine. It's an mp3 blog so it's ALL ABOUT MUSIC and NOT ABOUT ME. (What can I say - I like a challenge.) It's called Audio Files and it's published on the first Monday of every month. Check it out!

'Fave Gestures in Porn'
Text: Andrew Johnston

Design: Miranda Iossifidis
A6 booklet / 4 pp + A4 poster

Random quote (from 'Landed-Fish Orgasm'): "His eyes are going like roulette balls. Gasps halfmoon his mouth. Four more thrusts initiate the involuntary gesture: his head jerks back as though God, fishing from a cloud, has cast a hook through his top lip and tugged."

Random quote (from 'Hand-Halo Suckoff'): "The gap represents Straightboy's intact heterosexuality: to close it, and thus to make physical hand-to-head contact, would be to seal a homosexual fate. As long as he lets it hover, he's straight, he's straight, he is, he's straight."

THE INTERNET - NOW IN HANDY BOOK FORM!



Deep within the bowels of this book lies a joke pilfered by your humble narrator from her friend Alice, then gifted to the author. Said joke was all about the perils of going on the internet while drunk. (Please remember that this was all the way back in 2001, when the net was just kicking off in Britain, and such observations were fresh and funny.)

Anyway, here's the feature Alice and I created around the joke, for dearly departed Brit spoof site Seethru.co.uk. Check it out - it's both funny and a nostalgic wander down memory lane to a time when websites and bulletin boards and cybercommunities and MSN messenger and so on were fresh, new, exciting, scary and addictive.


(Early protoype of modem breathalyser)


And now! Somewhere in The Internet - Now In Handy Book Form a version of this joke apparently lives on. Aw! I've not seen the book yet so I can't judge, but it's written by David McCandless, editor of Seethru, so is probably very funny. The perfect gift for the netgeek in your life, &c. Check it out!

SUNDAY TIMES SELL OUT



So the piece I wrote about cute fat chicks has been published in the Sunday Times. I wasn't prepared for all the feedback you get when you go mainstream. *buries head in comforting wing of underground*
