Long before Becks was entertaining us with his text messages going 'SO
****, THINKING OF THE *****, I JUST WANT TO **** ** **** UP YOUR ******
AND *** ***' he was, rumour has it, doing vile
and embarrassing things to Poor Posh with champagne bottles! Gosh.
I don't know if it's true or not, but it's mildly amusing - and as we
settle into another working week, we'll take what we can find, and if
that means mild amusement and schadenfreude, then so it shall
Are there any graphic designers out there? There here is a special site
just for you, called Font Fetish.
You will love it. Graphic designers are so cute, aren't they, in an emotionally
retarded sort of way.
And, ta-daaaaaaaAAAA, not that this site runs on nepotism or anything,
but check out this website CHISKY.COM,
made entirely by my friends Raz and Benway! God love 'em. This baby has
been like a thousand years in the making and features excellent cartoons,
bedsit recipes, a homage to slot machines and superstar Kevin Bacon's
diary and stuff, so be sure to have a rummage around and send them some
nice emails and ting. That is all really.
Oh, and I am not putting links in a new window any more because it takes
forever and is a giant drag and everyone uses pop-up stoppers these days
anyways. Kindly use the 'back' and 'forward' buttons on the top left corner
of your browser window to navigate between this site and the linked site.
I THANK YOU!

Sorry we disappeared, not that you care. AMPnet upped sticks to a whole
'nother area of Dalston! Where they did not have the internet until, like,
yesterday. Poor other part of Dalston! But now they have joined the future
like the rest of us, and so, we are proud to be back online and be able
So. First off. We are very happy to be able to introduce... Cex's COCK!
Haha. No, what it is, Cex
is doing the guest spot over at Playlouder, and has written 1000 words
on the subject of cock size and male insecurity. Oh Cex!
It is like as though he was your boyfriend or something, and you and he
are sitting around in a bar, and he is pondering and pontificating and
gazing into the air with his little eyes and his hands peeling off the
label on his beer, and you, well, you're just watching his mouth.
this Kolbunny thing. Just a collection of photographs, art, Flash,
and drawings. Like a picture of his
hot friend who is 'half Swahili and half Chink'. Or some things that
have to be destroyed because he does not feel their trust (seven pictures
of bits of... smoked salmon? cod? peppers?). Or pencil
drawings of horses having rainbow orgasms. It's lovely.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND EXCELLENT THING EVER. This thing,
I swear. My god. It is as though they took a boy's brain
- the excellent kind of boy, mind, not the rubbish kind - it
is as though they took that kind of excellent brain and
slit it open and pinned it down like butterfly in order
that the whole world might benefit from what lies stored inside.
And what is that, you cry? It's this guide to electronic music. First
off you get all the synths, with little samples, so you can hear what
the defining sound of each genre was, and how the music got updated as
the technology changed.
Then, you get a map, plus timelines... And you click on a genre - say,
electro - and see how it relates to hip-hop, and turntablism, and ghetto-tech,
and miami bass. And each genre has a little description, and then five
sound samples of some of the defining tracks from that genre. It's quite
exquisite, not only because it's like some kind of Bluffer's (read: girl's)
Guide To Electronic Music, for those of us who came late or stupid to
the electronic partay - but also cuz it takes something that seems far
too big and too formless and too incomprehensible and organic to handle,
and turns it into a fucking *map*.
If you're anything like me, and become curiously flustered and joyous
at the thought and sight of Venn diagrams - all that info pinned down
just spread and waiting for our probing eyes - then this will give you
a boner of immense magnitude. Respect is due.
And finally, something to do with said boner - a super-pretty
pixel guide to hand jobs. Nice colours! (Work-safe? Nyah!)

poor little Matt Dillon. Look at his sad little face. Why is he so sad?
It is because his 1979 film Over the Edge has not had a video or DVD release!
Make his little face do a happy smile by signing this very
important petition for its immediate release.
I've been obsessed by the photography of Matthias Vriens ever since i
found some issues of Dutch magazine a few years ago that he was creative
director for. And I just found this interview
with him onlined from an issue of Butt
magazine i haven't got! Hooray for the internet. Hooray for Vriens.

I'm sure you've noticed, Christmas is all over *does cry*. Never mind
- let's send happy MONKEY
POW!!! e-cards for the new year, which you design yourself and feature
girls in red frocks doing kung fu on depresso monkey boys! (well, mine
do). Alternatively, if you fancy creating an even more vicious superhero,
you might try the wonderful Hero
Machine. My one threw red and black lightening bolts! I think I love
The Onion does a chazzing-related story! Please to meet The
Anonymous Hero Who Donated All Those Old Legwarmers To Goodwill. Speaking
of chazzing - don't forget to check out our forthcoming Anti-Chazzing
Manifesto: Why Bay Garnett Makes Us Want To Do A Sick. Coming soon.
Anyway, so what with it being all January and shit, you're probably making
lots of resolutions about how never again will you do a bump of k and
then attempt to run for a taxi while wearing fluffy moon boots like giant
marshmallows on the ends of your suddenly-bendy legs, and stuff like that.
Here, then, is something to help you maintain your resolve. They filled
a man with acid and then made him do drawings, which are published
here. Sample quote: "Upon completing the drawing the patient starts
laughing, then becomes startled by something on the floor." Poor
patient! I always wondered what went on at those medical trials.
man from The Guardian hates on iPods! Yeah whatevs, grandad.
And you know that Paul
Davis illustrator guy, whose work looks a bit like David Shrigley's
but isn't? And is still really nice, like on all post-its and that? Well,
here's his site. And finally, if you're stuck for something to do on Saturday
night e.g. the 10th Jan, Mignon
is playing at Club
Motherfucker upstairs at the Garage, which could be fun, if you like
that Berlin electro-karaoke kinda thing...
