THE KITTEN OF WOE ANIMATION
With crab & gibbon

Joel Veitch, ocelot lover and creator of the "Frightened 
Boy" animation, is back with a new piece of genius. 

"I've made a new cartoon," he says. "It's soul-destroyingly
awful. You'll want the sound on really."

It's the sequel to an earlier animation called Blode,
and features their further adventures of small blob-like
people. There's also a special song about a centipede 
sung by Joel himself. And a U-boat. 

Joel is 27, and hasn't taken acid for two years.

FAKE THE DEATH OF YOUR FRIENDS
with a BBC news web page

Two months ago the Internet was alive with rumours
claiming the death of Britney Spears.

At the center of the insanity was a faked BBC
news page detailing her death.

The BBC said, "the network was considering legal
action against the perpetrator, who used a trick
URL and graphics stolen from the BBC site to make
it appear that the story was real."

While we would in no way condone this appalling 
behaviour, we have created a tool that will allow 
you to select the person you want dead, and a 
picture of them and wrap it up in a nice fake URL.

Legal notice: doing this is wrong.

WHO IS Y2KHAI?

One of the web's great ironies is that Dotcom companies
who've blown millions on marketing get mentioned far less
than strange individuals like Mahir "I Kiss You" who've 
made amusingly clumsy websites.

So when a bunch of people from WireBreak Entertainment 
("a Gen-X male destination turned digital production 
company") found themselves out of a job, they decided to 
make their own Mahir-style site. 

The result is Y2Khai - a supposed wannabe Asian hip hop
star. Or, as he describes himself - "One Loc'd Out Asian". 

B3ta noticed the site designer Corey promoting the
character on newsgroups, so got in touch. 

"I am not Khai," he said. "Khai actually exist.  Khai,
myself and the fash artist/designer/creator all worked
together at a dot.com before the big crash."

Corey and co seem very keen for Khai to cash in on his
fame, but they don't seem too sure how. "Khai is not
currently with a record company... he is still a free
agent and sweeping the globe," he says. "Could you
utilize his services?  Any ideas? Companies can
definitely capitalize off of Y2Khai's extraordinary
popularity..."
 
Good luck, guys:

OH GOD IT'S ANOTHER RABBIT ANIMATION
and this time you can click it

Stu, B3ta member & designer of the infamous "Feed The
Duck" application has got to work and prodcued a
revolutionary new concept in computer entertainment:
"feed the rabbit with kitchen stuff."

Stu says, "The appliances are all Antony Worral
Thompson ones made by Breville, of the dangerous
toasted sandwich fame."

(BTW: Rivial chef Gordon Ramsay once described Antony
as a "squashed Bee Gee".)

Click on the skyscrapers to feed the bunny.

STUPID NEWS
Teacher hides in roof for 3 years

The assistant head teacher from the former Soviet Union
went missing after an argument with the head in which he
was accused of being an ignoramus. Three years went by,
a new assistant head was appointed, and his wife gave
up hope. 

However, the lost teacher has now been found - in the
attic of the school. He'd been teaching himself algebra
from stolen textbooks and eating pasta and potatoes
from the kitchen, supplemented with pigeons he caught
among the rafters.
