Whilst checking out some of the results pages that brought people to Spinneyhead when they were searching for exploding pizza delivery dudes, I found this news item. A woman in Missouri alluded to having a bomb around her neck so she could rob a bank. She was caught because she parked her own car too close to the scene of the crime and was tracked down because of the number plate.
It’s quite interesting to be on the Brian Wells collar bomb search results. I don’t think anything has caused this much interest, and hits, since Victoria Clarke’s awful press conference suits during Operation Oil. I’m not about to display those sorts of graphics on Spinneyhead, but the people who do are offering an alternative to the sanitised mainstream media.

First project for my course is to do a piece introducing Manchester. So I spent most of today wandering around the Dirty Ol’ Town (no, actually, that’s Salford isn’t it) trying to see it in new ways. I’m also randomly phonecamming textures, colours and shapes.
Go and see it. It’s very weird, in an inventive and truly surreal way. Singing triplets, Le Tour, the Mafia, stretch 2CVs, a fat dog that hates trains and one of the oddest car chases ever. And that’s just a short list.
Musique- Pixies, Surfer Rosa & Come On Pilgrim
I am not the person who put a rugby shirt and SonyCentral sticker on Alan Turing. The man’s practically a god to geeks.
Soundtrack- Pixies, Doolittle
If you’ve ever wondered if it’s possible to make a cartoon that’s cute but more violent then Itchy & Scratchy then you’ll find the answer at Happy Tree Friends. My personal favourite Happy Tree Friend is Flippy, the unstable Vietnam vet.
Rockboarding, though it should probably be more accurately called scree boarding, is the latest Red Bull sponsored extreme sport. Not something you should do with a shiny new board.

After emptying my MP3 list, I’ve decided to work my way through my cd collection, finding out which ones aren’t on the computer yet. In anticipation of Frank Black and the Catholics on Wednesday, I’m currently listening to Bossanova.
Speakers are necessary. Do not try this at work. Sanity Check.
As of today I’m back in education again. It’s only one day a week, officially, though I do have the time to dedicate more than that to it at the moment.
The whole of Italy has been blacked out by a huge power cut. They seem to be a trend, once America’s had one, the rest of the world just has to jump on the bandwagon.
The CIA has asked for an investigation to find out which White House staffers leaked the identity of an Agency operative, probably to smear her husband. It seems The Company are not happy with Wubble U’s team trying to pass the buck for the idiot in chief’s foreign policy failures.
Technorati tag: Iraq
After faffing around with CD-Rs today, I’ve decided I need something like this.
Casa Spinneyhead doesn’t need a bigger sofa. It needs a smarter sofa.
This week’s theme is heights–
