  • Want to take part in the next Comic Relief video with Girls Aloud and Sugababes?
    So the next Comic Relief single will feature the Sugababes vs. Girls Aloud which is fantastic idea for charity. I predict a riot amongst the fans. Imagine what an All Saints vs. Spice Girls version of this would have looked like back in the day ...
  • CBS Considering New Animated Trek Series For The Web
    Actually a very cool extrapolation of the franchise in animated form. I would imagine that to some Trek fans it would be about as shocking as 'Death Comes To Time' was to Who fans, but it this seems much better thought out and canonical.
  • 'Tis the Season: Only 1% of cards sold in Britain each year feature the baby Jesus
    It's probably true and there's a pie chart to prove it. This year my cards featured Bagpuss or a snowy scene with tradional Pillar Box and Telephone Kiosk.
  • The Impulsive Buy: Cocaine Energy Drink
    "With 280 milligrams of caffeine per 8.4 ounce can, it almost has three times the amount of caffeine in a can of Red Bull. I’m typing this at 3 o’clock in the morning and I’m frickin’ wired."
  • The Art Newspaper: Sotheby’s to sell 22 Getty paintings
    It's the art equivalent of the out of date stock sales they have in branch libraries.
  • Cinematical: Leading Paris Museums Enter the Film Business
    "Both Musee d'Orsay and the Louvre, Paris' leading museums, are joining the cinematic world by underwriting films by internationally-acclaimed directors." Sounds beautiful.
  • Radio Times: Grace Dent watches The Royal Variety Performance (so you don't have to)
    "8:22pm - It's Tim Curry and the cast of Spamalot. I reach for the Sky+ remote then remember I'm watching in real time and there is no escape from the infomercial."
  • BBC Storyville: When the Levees Broke
    Don't forget Spike Lee's film is showing over two nights on BBC Four. Part One is on Monday 18 December 9pm-11.10pm with Part Two: Tuesday 19 December 9pm-11.10pm (although they may be repeated BBC Four does that a lot).
