Ned's Atomic Dustbin - Reprise

Hibernation

This is Neds new single released only over download. It is a really good Neds track, that familiar voice, bass oriented melody and scathing lyrics.

What is different is the syncopation, the rhythm and the position of the guitar in the overall sound. It's enought to be noticable to a Neds fan but change and difference isn't always a bad thing and compared to the songs on the last album I bought (Angels and Airwaves) Neds work still stands out as being unique in all aspects of it's soundscape.

Brilliant.

Go and download it (The full download comes with a remix of an old favorite, which is SODDING AWESOME)

Long live the Dustbin!!!!!!!!

Is there nothing that can' t be enhanced by the addition of an LED display?

This has to be one of the funniest things I've seen in ages.

If there one thing missing in my life it's the diamonique encrusted LED Western Belt Buckle.

The website is so thoroughly ass that their menu doesn't work in Firefox so you have to work out from a jumble of pictures which LED screened item is which to browse all of the weird and wonderful objects they have glued LED displays to!!

Unless I'm very much mistaken this site is also 100% serious and not a pisstake.

You wondered what happened to everyone who ever had a Geocities site? Well they all decided the world needed LED displays on EVERYTHING and formed Tbuckles.com!

PimpMySnack.com receives legal threat...

...from MTV, if that's any sort of surprise.

No, I didn't think it was. Suffice it to say, the poor bloke who runs both it and comicalgames.com (and is an all around top bloke) was a bit unnerved by the whole thing.

Today, I received a letter printed on very thick 'take me seriously' paper, letterheaded by a big fat London law firm, telling me that they represent Viacom International Inc. who own MTV... who own Pimp My Ride (they use the phrase 'As I'm sure you're aware' about 10 times).

Guess the rest.

Unless I immediately close the site, and sign away all rights to use any permutation of the name now or in the future etc etc etc. they'll be taking me to court, and have me for legal costs, damages etc ^ 10.

So there we have it, yet another example of how the Big Company scours the world for the little guy, just waiting to pounce on any new idea (that has fuck all to do with pimping CARS) even vaguely related to anything they might be able to put a legal stamp on.

I'm taking legal advice. What else can I do?

Fortunately, all and sundry have advised him to tell MTV/lawyers to go and sling their hook until they actually have a case, something he seems willing to do.

Watch your RSS feeds for "MTV sues pimps for attempting to 'pimp their hoes', in direct violation of their copyrighting of the verb, adjective and noun: 'pimp'."

28 again!

Next saturday is my birthday, to celebrate the fact that I've edged another year closer to the big 40 I'll be out in Cardiff on friday the 26th.

This also coincides nicely with the conclusion of my first year exams so I'll be in the pub from about 4pm.

If anyone would like to help me celebrate by joining me in drinking beer and dancing like a twat to 80's cheese in Reflex (unless anyone can think of a better way to celebrate of course?) then please feel free.

All are welcome.

The A-Team

Now this is what I call a website... The A-Team Shrine

There is even a page called "Getting the Look", where if the mood takes you, you can learn how to look just like one of your A-Team Heroes.

"In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team."

Bill Shatner - Has Been

Billy boy has found time in between Bran Flake adverts to release a new album (Actually it came out about 18 months ago but it has taken that log to surface)

For those of you who remember the seminal Transformed man and the Leonard Nimoy co-album Spaced Out you will be in no doubt that this has the potential to be a very special recording...

Then you see the list of artists co-credited on this on; Henry Rollins, Ben Folds, Lemon Jelly, Joe Jackson and Brad Paisley.

So, naturally I have aquired a copy...

Bill does a wicked rendition of Pulps Common People. Ill say no more.

Enjoy.

Do NOT look at these Links - It may disturb.

However, I think this one of the most amuzing thing I have come across in the whole of today...

The Kar Kaddy...

Mr. Powell,

I saw this and thought of you... The Kar Kaddy.

You need this to add the finishing touch to the Fabia.

You want big? The Pimp will sort it...

Have you ever found that that Lion bar just isn't big enough? Ever found that your Bourbon biscuit leaves you hungry? If so, you need to look at this...

Drop whatever you are doing and bask in the glory that is the Curly Wurly from hell.

This site is something of a cult now, not sure how I haven't spotted it sooner. Anyhow, enjoy!

Carnage


This amused me.

Even if only because the Middle Lane Hog is MY PET GODDAMN HATE and all perps should be dragged from their vehicles and be publicly flogged then covered in salt.

It's kind of a rant that I could have written. Enjoy.
