Calamaties, Various.

Music is dead. This killed it. I'm not even going to embed it, because I don't want it staining the purity and integrity of this fine site. I'm not even going to apologise, because for once it's something fucking dreadful that I didn't do.

In other news, I've been trying to enjoy Fable 2, but am failing because the game is so utterly wretched in so many ways. It tries very hard to make you like it in the beginning - it has decent combat, is beautifully presented, and does a reasonable job of expanding on the story of the first game.

Here's the kicker - it has no emotional depth whatsoever. My character is married. I cannot remember her name. She repeats the same lines as all the other characters in the game, in the same voice. She is always happy, though she hasn't seen me in a year of game time, but 40 coins are deducted from my account each day. It is preposterous.

Interaction with the other characters boils down to standing in front of them and jiggling. If you jiggle well, stuff happens. Or so I am told. I haven't really noticed. You strut and belch, scream and fart. Not a single line of dialogue issues from your character, but you could break wind for ten hours if it amused you.

They have designed a beautiful world and populated it with flatulent mannequins. Fantastic.

Dear Sir.

No comment from me, just glorious spam, exactly as I received it.

Dear Sir,

When choosing a penis enlargement method, there are many MANY options these days. But very few are worth the money. In fact, most are full blown scams!

Don't get ripped off - you deserve the real thing!

Penis Growth Patches are the newest, safest and absolutely most potent patch you can buy. No other patch even comes close to duplicating the results found with our Penis Growth Patch.

Just look at what our users are saying:

Having tried penis pills and realizing the importance of sustaining regular blood levels of the formula through consistent regular dosing, I realized my life was far too busy to keep track. With the Penis Growth Patch I simply slap it on and let it do it’s thing, no muss or fuss. This patch truly rocks as without having to stress about how often of how many pills to take, I’ve acquired a size which makes me feel confident.

Thank you Penis Growth Patch for enriching my marriage through an enhanced sexual relationship. My wife has become so much more interested in sex and now often initiates.

All of the women I have slept with would thank you if they new what you have done for me! I've seen an incredible increase of about 2 inches overall. Your product is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone who has a small or average penis and wants something bigger and better for themselves.

Election Fever.

There's always a choice.

Sound Advice.

Simon Pegg has some good points to make. For the record, I've yet to see this show, but I'm reliably informed that it's winging it's way towards me.

Take All The Precautions You Want.

Looking through a PowerPoint presentation for a product we're selling this morning, I came across something that was genuinely alarming. A little background: this is a product for shrill Daily Mail-reading parents who think their kids are going to be sodomised by Bebo, right through the screen. It was full of facts and figures designed to alarm, amongst which was this:
