: BEST USVSTH3M ARTICLES THIS MONTH
  Reading rather than interactives

: SITES IN BRIEF
  Stuff we like that wasn't made by our mates

  *  Abandoned CDs - oddly fascinating glimpses
  of the rotting, technology of the recent past. 
http://abandonedcds.blogspot.co.uk/


  * Winter wear for the discerning b3tard -
  because who doesn't want to be draped in cock?
http://odioalagente.tumblr.com/post/105381396001


  * 12 days of Tubgirl and Goatse -  Something
  festive for our readers and not even that NSFW.
  Finally a use for 3-D printing!
http://tubgirlandgoatse.tumblr.com/


  * Bullets! Lots of bullets! The Recordist on
  SoundCloud has 23 seconds of HD bullets
  whizzing by. Play loud, as it used to say on
  LPs.

  * A very specific niche here. Perfect for
  secret Santa!

: VIDEO SCHMIDEO
  Like TV but without the Radio Times

  >> Car Park by Bird Box Studio <<
  Varmint writes, "This deserves a repost because
  it won the British Comedy Award 2014 for best
  Internet short, AND was done by a B3tan!"
http://www.b3ta.com/links/Car_Park_by_Bird_Box_Studio


  >> The Crap Robot Championships <<
  "This is what the internet was invented for!"
  claims wakeupandsmellthebacon - with partial
  accuracy.

  >> A recorder made from a carrot <<
  Does what it says on the tin. A carroty tin.
