I wouldn't join any club that would have me as a member

Emily is a bit miffed that her name was 2003’s most popular girl’s name. She wanted to be exclusive.

Checking the list for Spinneyheads- John comes in at 33, Ian at 53, Brian at 72 and Tim(othy) 96. Darren, Damian and Alan are nowhere to be seen.

If you look through the list it’s easy to conclude that there are some stupid and/ or malicious parents out there. Were all the girls called Trinity conceived during the long boring philosophical bits in reloaded?

The international press about theworldvotes

NEWS TODAY, SINGAPORE — In a globalised world, the domestic politics of one country can affect many others. And nowhere is this more true than the United States – the only remaining superpower. With this in mind, a group of Dutch Internet users has set up theworldvotes.org, ahead of the November 2004 US presidential election.


FAJAR, INDONESIA — Ketika di Indonesia masih banyak orang yang diberitakan bingung dengan sistem pemilu kita demikian juga dengan pemilihan presiden langsung, ternyata ada gagasan baru yang tampil untuk melahirkan sebuah pemilu-dunia. Sekelompok orang telah bersepakat membuka web yang akan menjadi sarana penduduk dunia untuk mengikuti pemilihan Presiden Amerika Serikat.

Your say

“Although I think theworldvotes looks like a sympathetic initiative of some sympathetic fellow countryman I will not participate. Start up a dialogue, instead of elections…”

Music to get laid to

Title and idea lifted from a conversation last Friday.

I’m in a list making mood again, and with the concept of Music To Get Laid To rattling around inside my head it’s time to go through the songs that are sexiest, most romantic or have the most horny memories attached. Plus, of course, it gives me the chance to do some referal pimping.

Slow Song (live version) by Joe Jackson. A song all about the joy of listening to romantic songs and why the DJ should play at least one snogging slowdance number in their set. It’s also over eight minutes long, so I’d only have to put it on repeat four or five times.

38 Line Poem by The Wonderstuff. I only got to see the ‘stuffies live once, at Preston Guild Hall. It was the night before I lost my virginity and they played an early version of this song. So obviously it’s tied to a special moment, but it’s also a fine song, all about knowing there are people you can rely on out there.

After the Watershed (Early Learning the Hard Way) by Carter USM. Not what you’d consider a sexy song really, given the subject matter. But I pulled to it once so it has a special place in my groin heart.

Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison. Sha la la la la la la la la la la dee dah. Nothing else to say really, just a lovely song even if the last verse is all about losing her. (Where does a blue eyed boy go to find himself a brown eyed girl?)

There She Goes by The La’s. It may be all about drugs, but it’s still sexy if you don’t think too hard about the lyrics.

Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer. Just the right side of too sweet. Their version of the previous song’s not bad either.

The whole of Shooting Rubber Bands at the Stars by Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians. I still only have this on tape, but on repeat on cd this would be the soundtrack to a long lazy naked Sunday in bed with your lover.

I’m sure there are more, and I’ll add them to the comments as I think of them, but now it’s time for you to nominate your bedroom ballads and sexy singalongs.

Gummy Dongs

Each Gummy Dong has it’s own distinctive flavor and character. There are four flavors to chose from: (l-r) Sour Apple, Strawberry, Watermelon and Peach. And they are all SUGAR-FREE! Each dong has a vibrator inside so even when the Gummy is gone, you still have a wonderful vibrator!

Check out the Flash animated ‘adventure’. Imagine that M&Ms ad, but with a phallic sweety instead of the chocolate coated peanut.

Borderline NSFW- you might be able to get away with it until someone looked at the cartoon characters……..
