Been watching the Royle Family - check out some of their choicest bon mots:
Dave Best: 'Ey, I'm rough today me me guts are well off, I had a bad pint last night.
Jim Royle: I bet you washed them down with a few more, though, didn't you.
Antony Royle: How d'ya know if its a bad pint?

Melange Melee

OK, another heaving round up of interesting things on the Interweb (including this bullet bra from Rita Sue:


Vivienne Westwood's manifesto on ART - from the Hay on Wye Festival

Bookman Beattie - great New Zealand book blog.

How to write by Philip Matthews - useful advice from The Listener.


Hallelujah - the Leonard Cohen song. I was obsesssing about in on Saturday and look at what this wonderful blogger has prepared. Jeff Buckley and Rufus Wainwright - wonderful boys.

Radio 1 Mash up
Radio Zero

Dark matter - Guardian article on the joy of Nick Cave: "Cave, as a poetic craftsman, provides all the enjambment, ellipsis and onomatopoeia that anyone could wish for. A word on eroticism and the dreadful dolour of knowing not only that all passion is spent - but also that you're overdrawn. If Cave were to be typified as a lyricist of blood, guts and angst, it would be a grave mistake. He stands as one of the great writers on love of our era. Each Cave love song is at once perfumed with yearning, and already stinks of the putrefying loss to come. For Cave, consummation is always exactly that."


Irony Central - a highly amusing take on parenthood. Thanks to MoMo.

Am a wee bit obsessed by the LOLs:
I can has cheezburger


Bettie Page wigs at the wonderful Rita Sue
