Dear gods, I don’t know what to say about this. Um, what better way to celebrate Her Royal Majesty’s 60th everything than by sticking some crown-shaped sparkles to your lady garden? Srsly? Your bedazzled mind must be fried, but hey, it’s your call. And it’s nowhere near as worrying a political statement as the Obama-headed dildo I saw a couple of weeks ago. If you really want to get one of these, you’ll find them for sale at Lovehoney for a fiver, along with a huge pile of sexy stuff for women, men and couples. Please, don’t send me your photos. [...]
The Tampax Multi-Pack: 3 different absorbencies in one handy box! Not really. It just has three smaller unprinted boxes inside the bigger branded box. What a waste of tree-corpse. Even if it’s all recycled and recyclable, what a waste of energy. It all has to be manufactured and transported. You know, I’ve got no issue with the colour coded individual wrappers. They’re hygienic and they help me find the absorbency I want. But why box them up like that? I could have coped if they were all loose in the one box. Tampax, you disappoint me. With you I can [...]
Just seen that the leaked news last month about a special edition Union Jack Xbox 360 package has been confirmed by Microsoft. It’s the same white hardware and extra stuff as you get in the older Xbox 360 Family Pack: a white 4GB Xbox 360 S console a white Kinect sensor 2 white wireless controllers Kinect Adventures Kinect Sports 3 months’ Xbox Live Gold membership The only extra to what they’re calling the “Celebration Pack” is that it comes with free Union Jack skins for all the hardware, so that you can make it look like this: That means you [...]
I remember as a pre-teen wearing head-to-toe black (the closest I could get to a grown-up look, styling-wise) and two enormous black eyes of eyeshadow to channel Madonna for the summer camp talent show. We danced badly but aerobically to “Like A Virgin“, not having a clue what the lyrics meant. I’d seen Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan and she was the coolest of cool. In the time since then, she’s rocked some deeply dubious looks [including the rarely spotted "squatting-naked-with-a bottle-of-mineral-water"], but the 80s are back [still, FFS] and Vogue just published an online gallery of her styles through the [...]
A big new update to Battlefield 3 for Xbox 360 has just been released. The news they’re making the most of is that you can rent a server to play on via Xbox. Yes, PS3 has been offering this for a while and it is out for Xbox 360 at last. This means you can rent your own server and create your custom Battlefield 3 gaming space. OK, you could already do this by privately renting a slot on a server if you knew how, but now it’ll just be easier for those of us who don’t know. What Can [...]
What needs to be said about this one? It’s not the photography itself that impressed me, I admit; it’s just the concept of a Risk Factory. Is that where they make the board game? Is it the name of a nightclub I’m not cool enough to be allowed into? [In fact, it turns out to be a safety centre. Oh well.] I also thought it was particularly appropriate for posting here on April Fool’s Day. You can find more of kyz‘s work on Flickr. Want to Win Image of the Week?

Do allow yourself a little bit of mythos. It’s “the Cloud”, for fuck’s sake. Gods might be in there somewhere, playing What the Neighbours Did and sneering at our metaphysical shagpile carpeting.
The joy of blogging, to me, is that I do it because I want to, not because anyone else expects it. My recently-renewed blogging energy [or perhaps it's just the start of a manic episode] has made me think about what’s next: should I move to a self-hosted WordPress.org setup?
