: WHAT B3TA PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK
  Other than making sinister groans 

  >> Twitter follower quiz <<
  Can you guess which celeb has the most
  followers on Twitter? What if the celebs are
  Orville the Duck vs Aswad? Monkeon is BACK on
  his quiz bullshit and this is superb.

  >> Ad blocker gag <<
  Matt Round writes, "Ad blockers everywhere
  nowadays and I didn't want to feel left out. If
  you don't have an ad blocker, you can add
  #block to the URL then refresh."

  >> Don't Tape Over - comedy / mystery / horror pilot <<
  SeldomDiffer writes "If you have 30 minutes to
  spare have a look at this show I made. Thanks!"

It's no longer a single use plastic, if you fill
the bottle with piss, and throw it at Boris
Johnson.

: JOHN HIGGS DOES THE EGGPODD
  Fireman - Rushes

  In a collaboration of the scale of when Duran
  Duran worked with John Barry, our favourite
  author John Higgs has made a guest appearance
  on our favourite podcast. Well, we confess, we
  might have pushed to make this happen.

  John's tackling McCartneys' ambient LP Rushes -
  no don't run away - it's actually fascinating
  and Higg's brings insight to a corner of Beatle
  bollocks most people ignore.

  It's a "The Requiem for Linda":

The first law of robotics is you have to pretend
to be trapped in an invisible box.

-------------------------------------------------

: FESSHOLE
  Your worst confessions, confessed

  * JOB LOSS - "I got sacked from a shop job for
  forgetting the clocks had moved and being late.
  On my way out a now ex-workmate asked me where
  I was going. I said I'd been asked to do a food
  run, did he want anything. He gave me £20 and a
  list. He never saw me or the £20 again."

  * DEATH - "When my sister died, whilst we were
  clearing out her flat. I found a lock box that
  contained a load of sex toys and porn. Not
  wanting my mum to know about it, I hid it and
  went back in the middle of the night to pick it
  up and put them all in a bin outside Asda."

  * KIDS - "I taught my friend's 4-year-old
  daughter to pronounce 'broccoli' as
  'bollocky'."

  There's now over 120,000 words in Fesshole's
  databanks. Add some more.

The most important thing you can do in this
election is to disable your parents' router to
stop them reading Facebook.

: SITES IN BRIEF
  Content to stick up your content cunts

  * ARGOS STICKS OLD CATALOGUES ONLINE - as Noël
  Coward once said, "Strange how potent old
  photos of cheap midi systems are."
http://argosbookofdreams.co.uk/
  
  * BRIAN MAY DOES UNBOXING YOUTUBE VIDEO - Enjoy
  curly-haired badger enthusiast spending 18
  minutes explaining the board game "Queen
  Monopoly". This is a superb entertainment fix
  if you imagine it's a Brian Pern deep cut. Very
  quotable in boring way. "We regarded this as a
  Queen project. It's like making an album" "It's
  not a hotel it's a FULL PRODUCTION! Why can't
  people get this right? It really isn't hard."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8b6_wWpR4Q

  * JON PERTWEE SAYING "SHOW US YOUR TITS" - an
  amusingly awful moment from an old corporate
  video. The past was a different cunt tree and
  all that.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8r6HA2muMo&feature=youtu.be&t=210

  * SPICE GIRLS MASH-UP - finally Slipknot and
  Spice Girls in one track.
http://b3ta.com/links/1527184

  * WHO WROTE THIS MADONNA HIT? The barely
  believable origin story of Madonna's Open Your
  Heart. It involves an unknown songwriter
  breaking into a studio to get his demo onto a
  tape Madonna would hear. It utterly contradicts
  what Wikipedia says - but interesting anyway.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pq0ZK63sg1g

  * LISTEN TO WIKIPEDIA. Surprisingly relaxing. 
  Brian Eno probably thinks the whole web should
  be like this. And he's wrong. The stupid cunt.

-------------------------------------------------

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around
to record it as a podcast, is it still content?

-------------------------------------------------

: WHAT HAPPENED NEXT
  Follow ups on previous stories in the b3tan world
  
   * ROUND NUMBERS - Matt Round writes 'If you
   need to fill space with a what-happened-next,
   could mention that people have drawn over 10
   million circles, "One person claimed it's
   harvesting personality data for psyops,
   another complained it's wasting countless
   precious, ephemeral lives. I'm so proud."'
https://vole.wtf/perfect-circle/

-------------------------------------------------

Did you know there's a porn star called Abby
Rode? If you're a porn star looking for a Beatles
LP influenced name, these aren't taken yet: Ree
Vulva & Rub Arsehole.

  >> This week: Time Travel TV <<
  What would Eastenders be like during Roman
  times? Would Mrs Brown's Boys be funny if it
  was set in 3025? Time travel the heck out of
  all your favourite TV shows

: HOW TO IMPROVE VOTING 
  A B3tan guide to democracy

  * 16 year olds should get TWO votes as they've
  got to live with the consequences longer.

  * Blank ballot papers so votes only count if
  you can remember the name of the candidate.

  * One person, one vote and that person is Sir
  David Attenborough.

-------------------------------------------------

: STAR IN NEXT WEEK'S ISSUE
  Make content, you cunts

  * BOWERICK WOWBAGGER THE INFINITELY PROLONGED
  BOT. Get an old phonebook CD. Loop through it:
  "D Smith of 14 Arcadia Gardens, Kent. You're a
  prick. An absolute pillock wasting your life."

  * ONLINE EXECUTOR SERVICE - A friend of ours
  once asked us to be his "online executor" and
  clean up his search history etc should he die.
  This was 12 years ago and he's not died yet but
  maybe there should be a group service for
  people volunteering for their mates for this.

  * HTML: THE MOVIE - Two years until the 30th
  anniversary of HTML. That's enough time for
  someone to make a decent film. There's your doc
  project, nerdy people looking for a project.
  The significant people are still alive, this
  stuff changed the world and there would be an
  audience who'd watch.

Wonder if Paul McCartney goes to sleep going
"Shit. Just spent all day wanking. Could have
written another Yesterday but denied the world
more genius because I couldn't stop messing with
my dick."
