I remember when Simon wrote his URL on money and risked execution because it is a treasonous act. Apparently though, lots of people have tried to convey a message via the ol' moolah. You can also find out where your money has been if you reeeeaaaally want to.

Separated at birth? Parker from Thunderbirds and Noel Gallagher from Oasis

Now the question is, which one was first, the wooden performer or Parker? Talking of Noel, I found this rather interesting picture.

The funniest AIM away message

The funniest AIM away message I've seen for a while:

"I'm busy watching paint dry. I don't know about you, but I enjoy watching paint dry. I imagine that the wet paint is a big freshwater lake that is the only source of water for some tiny cities by the lake. As the lake gets drier, the population gets more desperate, and sometimes there are water riots. Once there was a big fire and everyone died."

Unfortunately not everyone has rhythm and even if they did, they probably wouldn't know what to do with it. As always though, the web is here to help, help you dance properly. Never again will you be booed and hissed off the dancefloor for making a complete arse of yourself. Now you'll have things thrown at you too.

I wish my hatred of chefs stopped at Jamie Oliver but unfortunately it doesn't and what's even more unfortunate is that you get to hear about it. Nigella bites in the way Americans use that phrase and just truly pisses me off. Delia Smith has the patronising teacher thing going and is scarily like my cookery teacher in school (coincedence or evil cloning experiment gone wrong?) who once told me off for spending too long on my flan. Bitch. Ainsley Harriet....well I don't have the words to describe him. Garish, annoying, in-your-face, over the top. Oh look, I do have the words! And then there's that drunk Keith Floyd. God, it's enough to put you off your food.

What is it about DIY

What is it about DIY that makes someone into a lunatic? The strenous exercise? The "this bloody screw doesn't go in this bloody hole, bloody hell....bloody!"? Or those useless set of instructions that may as well be written in Dutch and nine times out of ten are written in Dutch? Whatever it is, add a screwdriver, a hammer and an electric drill and it could very well get ugly. Today I experienced the DIY debacle first hand. There were puffs, pants and yelps, and once we got the first packet of nails open, it got substantially worse. Faces tend to contort to such bizarre expressions and the mouth changes in such abnormal ways that it's like being stuck in the Hall of Mirrors, except no one is laughing. Or dares to laugh. To make matters increasingly worse, there's always a supervisor/spectator. You know the one, sits there and gives instructions, annoying you so much that you want to crawl into that wardrobe you just assembled and close the doors behind you. The likelihood of it's collapse being a great comfort at this point. Yes, I believe DIY is one of the more evil acronyms and tomorrow I get to do it all over again.

Music makes a movie. That's

Music makes a movie. That's my opinion anyway and that's why I think I loved The Crow so much. The soundtrack of this movie set the mood for each scene perfectly and really helped make the film a favourite of mine. I've yet to buy the soundtrack because I'm broke (boohoo no job) but it's first on my list for when I get some moolah. The track I love the most is Burn by The Cure played in the scene when Eric Draven puts on his mask for the first time. < related fact> Did you know that parts of that scene are computer generated because it was shot near the end of film production, after Brandon Lee was tragically killed? < /related fact>

[Listen to more tracks from the movie at cdnow.com]

Part of an interview at

Part of an interview at Beliefnet.

Interviewer: You say you recently saw the Vatican. What was that like, and what do you think of the pope?

Marilyn Manson: Itís odd that you ask, because I have the popeís head, which someone sold me from a wax museum, sitting on the shelf in front of me, staring at me. I donít really have an opinion on the pope. Itís strange that so many people look up to him, because if you actually believed Christís teachings, it would be inappropriate to idolize somebody as much as you do God, and a lot of people look to the pope or the Virgin Mary in a way thatís idolatrous. But I donít have a problem with him.
I was kind of overwhelmed by the Vatican. I was overwhelmed by the amount of gold that was used to create the building, while so many people complain about hunger and homelessness and the pain and sufferings of the world. And buildings like that are supposed to be what God intended. It doesnít add up.
