A dysfunctional flash town just waiting to be explored. If it reminds you of your home town my advice is to move out while you can.

The Matrix meets Futurama courtesy of Neo Bender. Just one of Ross's continuing excellent finds in his new home at Coolio's. RIP Wastrel Division.

Cows With GunsI've been waiting for ages to find some more insane flash animation and finally the wait has paid off. Mad flash meets mad song in Cows With Guns which incorporates some very dubious rhymes but certainly made me smile. I especially liked the chickens in choppers [hosted at shagrat].

You know what they say about a guy with big feet? Well here are the hard *snigger* facts. For reference I am UK size 9 - I make no further comment.

If this story wasn't being touted by the Beeb and not on April 1st (I had to double check the date) I would doubt it's authenticity. A badger goes on the rampage in Worcestershire attacking five people. I eagerly await the film version of this.

Get Bart to write your lines if you are young and naughty enough to need such a service - kindly provided by milinkito. I of course am too good to need this...er...not too old...no not me [via Milk y Cookies].

Evil LazylacesIn depth scientific research prooves that Lazylaces is 34% evil. Too low you say? Well obviously I'm soooo evil I manipulated the result. Alternatively it could be that I really am 66% good although those that have met me may argue with this and for that I curse them to hell - oops - bit of a giveaway that [via Le Donut].

Update: I didn't realise this link was dynamic and when I checked back my evilness had increased. Doh! I better not mention my plan for world domination...

News of the day/week/month/year is that after months of waiting I am now a home owner (or homo as Jules insists on calling me which is doing me no favours when we go out since I am: {a} Hetro {b} Single {c} Looking). Anyway home ownership feels very bizarre - sooo much debt - but very very cool. I have my own space. Weird. Invites to Lazylaces towers by request (unless you've already received the e-mail or call) but all visitors MUST come laden with presents and/or drink. Photos of the palace to follow shortly when I get my act togther - as well as pictures of the infamous Jules if I manage to capture her on film.

Moving on... I'm particularly tardy with my Friday Five for this (last?) week:

1. Would you consider yourself an organized person? Why or why not? Yes - although I sometimes wish I didn't have to be. Basically I have to be as I have clients to see all over the place at a week's notice or less and unless I'm careful it's very hard to have my own life and see my own friends around this. Also having friends with similar schedules means that planning has to be military in it's efficiency for us to get together in the same place at the same time.

2. Do you keep some type of planner, organizer, calendar, etc. with you, and do you use it regularly? I don't carry any kind or organizer but I do keep an on-line schedule at diarymanager.com which I refer to everywhere I go. Also I make use of the power of post-it notes for those day to day reminders.

3. Would you say that your desk is organized right now? No. My desk currently holds: my computer, a large pile of bills/receipts I need to sort through, numerous CDs, 1 pair of socks, Sony CD/MP3 player, a remote-controlled Mini Cooper (thanks Jules) and one over-sized Guinness Hat.

4. Do you alphabetize CDs, books, and DVDs, or does it not matter? No - life is far too short for that kind of malarky. The nearest I've managed is to arrange my Ian Rankin books next to each other.

5. What's the hardest thing you've ever had to organize? I was best man for my best friend Matt from school. Lots to organise that day but you end up doing most of it on some sort of auto pilot or sixth sense or something. Buying my flat was pretty tough to organise and I'm sure lots of work projects have sent me round the bend - nothing really sticks out though. On balance I think being best man was the hardest thing but it almost doesn't seem like it as it's so rewarding and fun as well.

Right that's all for now. Further flat pictures and updates to follow soon.

Star DustFuturistic manga style adventure in Star Dust. Your mission is to track down the legendary Star Dust to cure your pet Pikatzhu's outbreak of pimples. Yes it's one of those classic game story lines... Anyway the whole thing's a bit short but quite good fun with funky musical interludes.

According to the secret service test I have whatever it takes to become a secret service agent with my score of 71.45%. Unfortunately once I got this far there was no secret about doing as well or as badly as I wanted - which was slightly disappointing as it revealed that even if you score nothing you are "top drawer" material [thanks Daisy].

A must for every home - the glow in the dark toilet seat. Cue hitting forehead with palm of hand and saying "why didn't i think of that?"

BelterI always loved Asteroids - not on any of the original consoles - somehow I managed to miss it at that point (because I was too young I'd like to think although I think that might not be it) but I spent plenty of time playing this on the Atari ST of all things. Anyway Belter is a nice new flash version with all sorts of power-ups and Asteroid variants which bring all those gameplaying memories back to you. Reminisce.
