THE OLD AND THE NEW
OK, I did a bit of a long overdue revamp.
1. No more do we have the never-popular opinion poll feature. I hadn't changed it more than a year and only about 80 of you people had bothered to vote in a year so out it goes.
2. A couple of dead links
3. The "Warmonger of the week" section. Rummy held it for a long time but not anymore. It is gone.
IN 1. In comes some permanent links to the movies I made. On your right below my profile you will see the section. These are all available for free download. The first one will take you to www.archive.org and the rest will just give you a straight download option - I hope you enjoy. I know, I know - they are windows media (wmv) files. Boo boo hiss hiss etc.
2. As a replacement for 'Warmonger of the week' we now have 'Arse of the month'. The section is on the right below the links to other blogs.
3. Some new links. Flimsy Sanity, Culture Ghost, Frederick, CV Rick and Aaron A. all have new links. There is also a new essay in the 'Want to Swot?" section called 'Beyond hope'.
If you haven't seen any of the movies and don't know whether you should download them then here is a twenty second one I did...

I have made a few short movies. Here are links to free downloads for them all in the order that I made them (as far as I can remember). Please feel free to use, distribute, disagree with, shout at etc etc
The inaugural 'Arse of the month' award goes to our very own Scottish First Minister Jack (Joke) McConnell. He seems to spend a lot of his time sucking up to english politicians and yet it appears they don't even know his name. Follow the link to see..
