Man attempting to steal truck chokes on truck driver’s tobacco spit, which he mistook for a drink. EW!

If you’re fed up with looking at your ugly vacuum cleaner, you might want to try disguising it as a giant rat in a gingham dress. There. Much better.

Sure, we tried the Faces of Addiction - where a blonde lady slowly but frighteningly morphs into first Pauline Fowler and then a deathrock skull. But trust the Yanks to go one better. Their Faces of Meth are way better than any stupid skull. We’re talking pungent reddened facial sores. We’re talking skin cracks. We’re talking total facial destruction. ROCK ON.

What was going on in this lady's mind, I wonder? "I love cats. But then, I love fractals. Cats. Fractals. Cats. Fractals. Eeny. Meeny. Miny – no! Wait! I’ve got it! I’ll combine cats and fractals into a web gallery of such astounding awesomeness that it will block out the sun! Oh my god I’m a genius." (via Alice.)

Anyway. Sorry for lack of updates. My charming wife and myself have moved from London’s newly fashionable Dalston – it’s the new Stoke Newington, y’know (*does sick*) to the fabulously scuzzy Homerton. Homotown. Hurrah! As such internet access is severely limited, and updates to the main part of this site impossible: in fact, presumably nobody is even reading this, so *takes off clothes, does a little dance* - anyway, I scribbled a review of last week's Go! Team gig for our buddies at Playlouder, so check it out!

Ooh hurrah! Me and Sophie are on the front of Playlouder wittering drunkenly on about our new favourite Germans, Bodenstandig 2000. Also there is some new style magazine doing the rounds - put together by people who did Sleaze, mainly - called Good for Nothing - and I've got a feature about the lovely Lady Sovereign in there somewhere. Haven't seen it yet, so if you get a copy, gimme a call! And that's it. Proper, less solipsistic linkage to follow shortly. Promise.

Awww. Vinnie. What a cute, cramptastic man. Even if he does sound rather like The Man Who Became A Feminist Sometime In 1992 Because He Totally Realised It Would Get Him Laid. Listen:

'My intention was to create a conversation that had never happened before: a man voluntarily asking a woman about her period. My hope is, that with the basic facts about a woman’s body, men can generate a greater respect and appreciation for women and their bodies.'

I'm rather fond of my Vinnie's Tampon Case, which I got given for free when I worked at Bizarre. At least the little bastards don't get loose and run around the bottom of your bag when they're in one - and it's sure nicer than those horrible 'discreet' navy blue Tampax freebie cases that my mum used in the 80s.

Get your Vinnie's Tampon Case here, or a retro one with a 'babe' on it here or here (ps - note the lame copy about 'what tampons?' and how 'noone need ever know about your personal life', *sigh*) or a tough-style leather one here - or just ditch the cases altogether, never leave the house, and install this excellent piece of Swedish design in your home instead. Sorted!

First Janet Street-Porter on I'm a Celebrity, now Germaine Greer in the Big Brother house. Cantankerous, clever older women - the new black?
