A picture named alien39.jpgAliens. As seen by children. Pretty weird website, but nice drawings.

This website features a series of drawings made by children who were abducted by aliens for the alien purpose of creating a new race of alien/human hybrids. The drawings show different aspects of the alien abduction phenomenon and include cruel medical procedures performed on children, children boarding alien spacecraft with other aliens, children playing with alien/hybrid children so the alien/hybrids can learn how to be human, and children being taken by aliens against their will, and the types of aliens encountered by the abducted children.

A picture named vw098a.jpgWalking Britain. This is actually quite a good idea. I should do this rather than just walking from The Blue Posts Pub in Kingly Street to The Ship Pub in Wardour Street ...

With over 3000 pages of information, "Walking Britain" is dedicated to the footpaths that cross the landscape. The National Parks feature strongly including the Lake District, the Peak District and Snowdonia, not to mention the Yorkshire Dales. Also detailed are the Brecon Beacons and Pennines. Coverage of Scotland and Ireland will be improved with more emphasis on these areas in future.

Also see The Walking Englishman. Via The Ministry of Propaganda.

A picture named pressmovie2.gifLetterpress. Nice little website:

Fireproof Press was a letterpress printing, packaging, and design company located in Chicago, Illinois. We specialize in smaller print runs, hand-set type, custom die-cuts, and unusual requests. The service provided went beyond simple reproduction - each print was subtly different from the next, a reflection of the handprinting process.

If you'd like to learn more about how we worked you'd probably enjoy this page that explains the letterpress process.

A picture named crop0002.gifAh. Read the Guardian:

In fact, the foundation for the government's claim was even shakier, according to the document: a single anonymous uncorroborated source quoting another single anonymous uncorroborated source.

A picture named a17.gifAntropomorphic. A website about the illustrator Boris Artzybasheff.

If Artzybasheff is recalled today, it is for his magazine covers but in the 40's and 50's he was known for human achines that commented wittily on the parallels between mechanical and human forms.

A picture named schwarzenegger_arnold_032.jpgCalifornia! A collection of 176 pictures of California's next Governor. Mind you, picture 149 is a bit odd...

A picture named blog.gifAt last? A proper article about weblogs? Well, at least about weblogs surviving in the mad business of advertising. Have a look at more brains. The full article is here as a PDF file, featuring yours truly, The Cartoonist.

Oh bugger - I forgot to mention - it's all in German. Get it translated via Google and whatnot. Sorry about this.

A picture named doc@htc.jpgSavage again. I've blogged Doc Savage before [1, 2], but now found one of the better websites about the old pulp hero: The Supreme Adventurer. A really well done fan site, and providing us with links to Skyscraper Headquarters, Hidalgo Trading Co., Fortress of Solitude and many more. And Rob Smalley's own picture of a Baumhofer/Bama hybrid isn't bad either.

A picture named 05_back.jpgSugar. The World of sugar. It came to me this morning when I had a coffee in Eurostar's departure lounge at Brussels Gare du Midi and closely examined the free Sugar stick. Why not have an entry about sugar. Sugar's great. So check out the Sugar Museum Berlin (German text) and then the Sugar Packet collections of Robert Gorniak and Jacek Wojdel. And the lyrics to the Archies song are here. Mad - I just couldn't find the MP3 anywhere.

A picture named bird.gifOk, that's it. I'm switching Radio's new trackback function off. It either doesn't work, or I did something wrong or nobody is linking to my entries. Pffrrr...! Who cares.

A picture named flag.gifCroeso! Fan-tastic. A Welsh Course on the web. Even with an online lexicon. Fab!

A picture named piggy.jpgOh my. I am mortified. I mean, I have heard of sheep, but a pig?

Pervert caught having sex with pig.
A man has been arrested after having sex with a pig. The pervert was caught in the act by a passer-by who spotted him abusing the animal at an inner-city farm. Police arrived within ten minutes of receiving a 999 call and arrested the 72-year-old, who was naked from the waist down.

[This is London]

A picture named cow.gifYesYesYes. I'm back for the weekend - today's a bank holiday in Belgium. The Eurostar was on time, which is pretty amazing, because my train last Sunday was cancelled and the next one available (two hours later) was an hour late. Guess I'm in for yet another refund ticket.
