Online journals. You either love 'em, or think they're a self-indulgent
pile of mastubatory toss.
We love mastubatory toss.
and the self-help books.
2) So, somewhere in bastard America,
it's bastard snowing.
How nice for them.
3) Fawn's updated. She's
so happy. So full of joi de vivre as per bloody usual. Jealous much?
4) Lisa isn't
full of joi de vivre. She's empty of it. She's taking a holiday. It's
over with Dave.
is wierd. She's obsessed with cooking. They had an ICE STORM in her part
of bastard America. I am so jealous of snow!
6) And finally: Erica.
A pretty little genius 17-year-old who writes like an angel already. Hot-damn!
Hot tamale! Guck-guck!

Are You Craig David? Never one to work too hard, AMPnet has 'repurposed'
its Grow Your Own Craig David article for seethru.co.uk. Hooray!
We don't have any other links because we were in Amsterdam and didn't
go on the internet for, like, days.

1.52 pm Re: Claire Swires affair: Bradley's
11am And in the Top Ten rudest
words in Britain, we have cunt at number one, swiftly followed by
motherfucker! Slag has moved up three places since last year, while God
is holding strong at the bottom of the charts.
I see Dubya's
started a weblog.
Who likes playing mock the stock at car boot sales, then? Here we have
a web page devoted to ugly
applique t-shirts, vomitous home crafts, and nightmare
inducing birthday cakes. I expected to like the things she loathed,
what with me being so obstererous an' all, but the girl's got taste.
Oh look, another unmetered
access provider's reneged on its deal. How dare customers use what
they're offered and have paid for, eh? How rude of them.
And finally: always
clear your brower history. Otherwise your computer is just a plastic
encapsulation of your unconsious. And the unconsious is scary. Repress!

for Claire Swire - got it first thing yesterday, forwarded it second
thing yesterday, and guess what - it's a hoax!
Forget arse-on-chest cleavage. All men are fly to the Wonderbra trick.
Think fake sticky-out-nipples!
Oh my heavens, I think I want some.
Craid David=date rapist? This is the meanest,
snarliest, funniest, most switched-on review of Born To Do It I've
ever read. And I've read a few.

Whilst researching UK Garage for a highly reverent article about Mr
Craig David, I found POONTWANG!
I don't have to hear a single note of their music to know that they are
absolutely my favourite band EVER. You can just smell the Aqua-net dripping
off the webpage! See the static crackle from those wigs! Smell the trail
of crushed whimpering indie-boys in their wake! Who needs music when you
have jpegs and pixels and all that stuff? I'm just as thrilled as if I'd
seen them in concert already!

Flossing. Who does it? Really? Well, R. Eirik Ott does. He writes a
print zine called The Wussy Boy Chronicles, and cites Duckie from Pretty
In Pink as his hero. For this alone, I am dying to meet him. But flossing?
Is this normal?
L.A. underground mag Glue has an online
journal from fabby fag performance artiste Ms
Vaginal Creme Davis. Not sure what the hell is going on, but it involves
nude intern boys, art stalking, snow queens, a nubian prince and incestuous
redheaded identical twins, so hooray.
If you've OD'd on fashion magazines, here's
an antidote: beautiful, curvy chicks, lovingly painted in classic pin-up
stylee. Les Toil is a Stateside artiste with a penchant for the more pendulous,
ample members of the female sex. For three hundred bucks, you too can be
a Toil Girl. Oh, how I wish I were rich. And fat.
Top fashion hint: cloven
hoof socks from Japan. Now one can wear one's flip-flops in winter,
too. How deluxe!
Tony Blair wants to crack down on yobbo culture. Do they mean you? Only
one way to find out. Take
the Are You A Yobbo Quiz. Apparently, AMPnet 'works hard and plays hard,
but manages to keep its antisocial-behaviour in check, most of the time'.
Good thing they didn't see us on Friday night, innit.

old dude is so trashy! yowsa! why do i never meet anyone like
this in my work? i just meet
new media men who know how to swear alright but are just plain old
new men when it comes to really being offensive, i just know it.
soulstaker was my favourite teenager ever. i swear it was him made proctor
and gamble close the swizzle
message boards! luckily i know where all the boards are archived. here's
soulstaker in all his 14-year-old skateboy glory.

Speaking of gayboys, as I often do - I've found a back entrance (oh, for
fuck's sake) to Seth Bogart's Puberty
Strike site. The site is currently being redesigned, but Amy Kellner's
list of Formative
Sexual Experiences Involving Prince is still up there. (Kellner is
a highly skill writer who's done stuff for Rollerderby and Index
- check her out.) The Prince revival is going to happen, so get diggin'
in those bargain bins, kidz.
When something describes itself as 'cool',
does that automatically disqualify it from being, uh, 'cool'?
this the most beautiful guitar strap ever made?
Siamese twins. Sorry. Conjoined twins. There's a lot of it about. Well,
there was. Like the Biddenden Maids from Kent. They were joined at the
hips and buttocks and they were so loved that for centuries, there were
annual celebrations involing cakes with their image on. This and other
interessante conjoined twin facts here.
You've read No Logo, haven't you? Course you have. But just supposing,
somehow, you hadn't got around to it. And then suppose the person who
lent you the book took it back over the weekend, when they came round
to your house after the pub. Then you'd need to brush up on at least the
chapter. Wouldn't you? And now you can.

Iwish I was a gay
Unfortunately, we laydees must find other ways of getting our kicks. Like
rollerskating! Anyone know of any roller rinks in Central London? Because
according to this,
all the roller rinks are in Essex. And Essex is scary.
Or, thrillseekers, we could go to Weston-Super-Mare.
many charity shops? What's that? Chazzing not risky enough for ya? Think
again after reading this list of list of jumble
Whatever you do, don't go onto the Bust message boards if you're a net
newbie. Lady Lucy ventured on to discuss her Independent
Heroine Project, and created some serious havoc. Those stateside feminists
have sharp claws. It's all those manicures, I guess. Gotta say though,
Lady - GLAD TO SEE YOU'VE STOPPED USING CAPITALS AT LAST.
And finally... Sumo
wrestlers dressed as ladies? Who knew they could be so pretty? Be
still my beating gusset. (via memepool).

Winter. Scarf time. How do the pretty girls know how to tie their scarves
just *so*? Here's how! The
Gap Guide to Scarf-Tying! I know the Gap is evil - sweatshop labour
an' all - but on Friday night in Soho I found a gorgeous lambswool lilac
scarf in the street - and now I know how to tie it in a fashionable, swish
double-loop stylie. From tiny things like this the fabric of happiness
is woven. Honest.
(The Macdonald's chicken head story is here,
just in case you haven't seen it.)
This - myvag.net - is one of the coolest
sites ever. Dedicated to one woman's vagina, (stop sniggering at the back
there) it's not cuddly, or cloying, but nor is it annoying 'inyerface'
femuhnist bragging. It's just a comprehensive catalogue of interesting,
matter-of-fact writings about the various aspects of the life of her cunt,
from grooming and masturbation to blood and lubrication. It's cool! There
aren't any pictures, though, kiddies. You'll have to use your imagination.
Or look at a Realdoll, huh huh
huh. How real are these babies, eh? These are dolls that represent real
girls doing real sporty things like surfing and that. Read an article,
or check out the Flash-heavy site.
BTW, these are not those extremely scary and (I thought) suprisingly sexy
ultra-real-life silicon dolls - they are toys for little girls to promote
positive self-esteem, doncha know.
I'm a vicar's daughter. Child of a preacher man. Soapboxgirls
this month is dedicated to such matters, it being Christmas an' all. Soapboxgirls
is a clever and interesting ladyzine from across the pond. Worth checking
out if only to see if all preachers' kids grow up into twisted, backsliding
heathens. Or is that just me?
