: KEEP KITTY SNUG GAME 
  Prevent your cat freezing this winter 

  Our friend Breel has a made a challenging game 
  for cat lovers. 

  The idea? Kitty is cold and needs socks 
  placed on his feet and ears. Of course! 

  There's a time limit which makes it suprisingly 
  difficult. Are you man enough for the challenge?

: ARSE OR ELBOW 
  Can you tell? 

  In the great tradition of our "Female or Shemale" 
  quizzes, Chicago Dave has knocked up a version 
  posing, perhaps, the ultimate question - can 
  you tell an arse from an elbow? 

  We can. We're Rock.

: WHAT B3TA PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MAKING THIS WEEK 
  Life coaching, Drawing, Explosions, Hypno thing 

  >> How to feel good about life << 
  Whilst we were putting this newsletter together 
  we started singing the James Bond tune "Nobody 
  does it better" This made us feel so good that 
  we had to share it. We want the whole world 
  singing in unison this afternoon.

  >> Photoshop (as made by spackers) << 
  Adam Armfield has made the most challenging 
  drawing package yet. It's impossible to use. 
  We challenge you to make anything remotely 
  recognisable.

  >> Exploding Stuff << 
  We got an email. It said, "My name is Andy. 
  I enjoy blowing things up." Blimey! He does 
  too! Brilliant stuff - watch him kill Santa. 
  WARNING: Big files.

  >> Hypno anim << 
  There's not much to this little bugger, but 
  it'll do your eyes in alright. Thanks Ac-X.

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


  >> Cow flash video << 
  Herman's Hermits couldn't have envisioned 
  this cartoon when they recorded their cult hit 
  "No Milk Today" back in the '60s. It's nice 
  to be reminded of such a great tune. 
http://www.millan.net/funp/80/nomilk.html 


  >> Matchstick sculpture << 
  There are many artists working in the field 
  of matchstick art. Mostly they are in jail. This 
  one is different. He uses matches like pixels. 
  Then sets them on fire. Huzzah. 
http://www.davidmach.com/sculpture/sculmatchframes.htm 


  >> Touch your unborn baby  << 
  Babies are creepy. That's why we've cut our 
  knobs off. If you're a breeder then why not 
  buy an ultrasound kit that plugs into your PC. 
  It allows you to simulate stroking your baby's 
  face with a pen.

  >> The History of Hoax Photos << 
  Fake photos didn't start with Photoshop. Check 
  out this interesting and informative article 
  detailing famous spoofs through the ages. 
http://www.museumofhoaxes.com/photos/photos.html 


  >> Death Scene Database << 
  At last! All your favourite actresses filed 
  according to when they've died in films. 
  If you like that sort of thing. We do. We rub 
  our smoothness. Woo. 
http://www.cinemorgue.com/ 


  >> Billy Joel << 
  Charming little animation featuring every single 
  thing mentioned in Billy Joel's 'We Didn't Start 
  The Fire.' However, it's the chatty commentary 
  that makes it.

: B3TA IMAGE CHALLENGE 
  Results from 'who's lurking in the garden' 
  challenge 

  Each week we run a competition to test your 
  creative skills. We set a challenge and you 
  open Photoshop and mess with our heads. 

  Last week we wanted to know 'who's lurking in   
  the garden'? http://www.b3ta.com/challenge/garden/ 

  We asked B3ta regular Witchy to judge the 
  entries - here are his 3 faves. 

  Witchy writes - 

  #1 "Nice to see International Rescue have 
  commandeered Apollo rockets for emergencies!   
  (brainstuff) 
http://www.b3ta.com/board/5/0/0/8/2/4 

  #2 "Mowing the lawn can be so much fun!   
  See what you're missing, kids? (Pob) 
http://www.b3ta.com/board/5/1/0/1/3/8 
   
  #3 "I always knew those hard-beaked bastards   
  were up to no good! (Clownkiller) 
http://www.b3ta.com/board/5/1/1/7/7/8 

  "A special mention to Hiltono for his 'fucking 
  gypsies'. Stereotyping at its greatest. 
  Sorry, gypsies." 
http://www.b3ta.com/board/5/0/9/2/9/1 


  >> This Week's Challenge << 

  This week, B3ta contributor backrubslut gave us 
  the suggestion, "Doctor Who monsters that 
  should have been"

: WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? 
  Follow-ups on previous stories. 

  * GRAFFITI THE WEB - last week we asked you 
    to scrawl obscenities on your favourite 
    website. You did in droves. A shout out 
    to the pupils of Tewkesbury School who 
    defaced their school site a stunning 185 times. 
    Check out the most scribbled-on sites.

  * JOEL ON TV - Joel's kitten animations have 
    been splashed across Channel 4 this week. 
    They've been bought to promote a new music show 
    called "Born Sloppy". Yay for Joel.
