Some nice timewasters

Yeah, used to go on this site a lot a few years a go - it's a great collection of really nicely designed flash games. Well worth having a look at if you've got a few spare minutes you want to kill, some of them are incredibly addictive though - so you have been warned!

Anyway in other news its my birthday

THE MANUAL BY THE KLF




Ok, I'm yet to read all of this - but I'm sure this will be of interest to a lot of you, and even if its something you haven't heard of/don't know who the KLF were/etc etc etc..... It's still well worth getting stuck into. I've copied the introductory passage from the 'manual' you can read the rest by clicking Here!!


“HOW TO HAVE A NUMBER ONE – THE EASY WAY”

Be ready to ride the big dipper of the mixed metaphor. Be ready to dip your hands in the lucky bag of life, gather the storm clouds of fantasy and anoint your own genius. Because it is only by following the clear and concise instructions contained in this book that you can realise your childish fantasies of having a Number One hit single in the official U.K. Top 40 thus guaranteeing you a place forever in the sacred annals of Pop History.

Other than achieving a Number One hit single we offer you nothing else. There will be no endless wealth. Fame will flicker and fade and sex will still be a problem. What was once yours for a few days will now enter the public domain.

In parts of this manual we will patronise you. In others we will cheat you. We will lie to you but we will lie to ourselves as well. You will, however, see through our lies and grasp the shining truth within. We will trap ourselves in our own pretensions. Our insights will be shot through with distort rays and we will revel in our own inconsistencies. If parts get too boring just fast forward – all the way to the end if need be.

Now, we all know that pop music is not going to save the world but it does, undeniably, create a filing system for the memory banks. In years to come people will stagger home down lonely streets singing your song to the strains of regurgitated vindaloo, all memory of who was behind the song lost. It is you, though, who will be responsible for bringing back those lost tastes, smells, tears, pangs, forgotten years and missed chances. So enjoy what you can while at Number One.
