Morrissey was detained at LAX airport today on suspicion of being a terrorist.
There are some footballing phrases that shouldn’t be uttered outside a pundit’s head, as Ron Atkinson has found out.
Ok, so we all hate spam. Here the page has some interesting statistics on the emails he gets. Most notably, how big he would be now….

One of the following does not feature in JIM BOB’s autobiography of his ten years of touring with the greatest agit-disco-punk-pop-rock-guitar-synth-and-drum-machine-band the world has ever known:
1. Fruitbat rugby tackling a children’s’ TV presenter live on telly.
2. Jim Bob being accused of murder by the police at JFK Airport
3. A Czechoslovakian fairy tale about a pair of magic underpants.
4. Stealing Swiss chocolate bars from Pavarotti’s mini bar.
5. A brief and accurate history of The Corby Trouser Press.
6. Jim Bob’s night of dirty love with footballer David Beckham.
“Jim captures the very essence of life on and off the road for the 90s’ least likely pop stars. Like you, I was there and this book takes me right back. A good dash of Hammer Of The Gods, a healthy glug of Ian Hunter’s Diary Of A Rock’n’Roll Star and absolutely no trace of Sting’s Broken Music, this book will mean a lot to anyone who fought the indie rock wars.” Andrew Collins

The theoretical limit on write speed (for the materials currently used) in computer hard drives has been calculated- 435,000 million bits every second.
Joey Manley, developer of webcomicsnation (which will be the home of Deputised Experts whenever it launches) is looking for XML experts to help with the syndication code. I’m sure some of the Spinneyhead family (team members and Friends of) must know something about this. The sooner he launches, the sooner I can start publishing my epic and have a big celebratory barbecue.
I’m having a bit of a UMIST week, what with the (no longer) mysterious Phantom and everything.
Someone came to Spinneyhead from a Google search for nude umist, which I thought was going to be a bit scary until I clicked on this link (NSFW, it’s an online portolio for a glamour model). Does anyone know this woman? Just out of, y’know, curiousity.
