A chilled weekend, time to catch up on internet rubbish.
Gladiator - previously-unseen footage from the location of Ridley Scott's 1999 'sword and sandal' epic Gladiator. http://www.duncanbeedie.co.uk/gladiator.htm
The web is full of EVIL PREDATORS and no-one should go online ever. Now with a foppish sheep wearing an unfeasibly large bow tie.
Postsecret is a fascinating website - an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.
A list of words compiled 'as a service to doctors who are not native English-speakers', but it's BASICALLY all the funny northern words they know
A sequel to Titanic, surprisingly inventive.
LIVE-ACTION, STOP-MOTION - An amazing bit of film as Director Russell Wyner uses stop-motion special effects on a kung fu jaunt about campus.

As my friend Will is off to work in Australia and will be missing all of the wedding festivities, we decided to have a get together and give him a send off. It was nice to and see everyone again. Will and Danny came from Devon, picking Gareth up in Southampton. Linda and Kris also came. Everyone arrived a little late, just before 7 in time for our restaurant booking at Iguanas in Brighton , but still in time to catch the end of happy hour with 2 for 1 cocktails, and we had good Mexican food. It was quite lively, there were 3 Hen parties in there (if you were wondering what the blow up doll in the back of one of the photos was about). Afterwards we went to the Biscuit Factory and Tom Scruby was in town, so he and Zilla met us at the pub too.
When we got back home Will and Gareth disappeared, "to go have a cigarette", but didn't reappear until 4.30 in the morning. They were both very considerate, Gareth phoning his girlfriend at full volume and Will breaking off a bit from my block of cheese to chew on and falling asleep with a beer in his lap before keeping everyone awake with loud snoring.
