Pigphone Linky

(The pigphone was the logo for a flat party we had in… 2001? It was a great logo of a phone that looked like a pig. I can’t find a digital version but my paper records are extensive, so hopefully it will be found.)

Taxonomy of rap names

London Review of Books reviews a book about the rise of creative writing programmes, and there is much thunder and lightning

From Dylan: the Edward Gorey house

Gator found Jim’s Pancakes – pancake art!

Male ensemble does Gaga:

Sesame Street madness. Beth found the Monsterpiece Theatre Twin Peaks parody, which I’d never actually seen:

And their recent riff on Tru Blood has been doing the rounds as well:

Dark Patterns: things on the web that are designed to trick you

The most powerful colours in the world

And finally… a complete rap album inspired by the West Coast Avengers, the lesser-known laid-back late-80s/early-90s alternative to the mainstream Avengers. Even Darkhawk gets a track.

    Ah, Pig-phone. Or was it Phone-Pig? Was it hyphenated (I believe Ms Judge says “if in doubt, hyphenate”… but I could be wrong)?

    I remember the image. Was there a poem (or rhyme of some sort) that went with it? Maybe pig themed?

    Also – connect 4! 4 comments in a row. Sorry, been busy, only visited after a week away and had lots ot say.

    The verse was something like:

    “Life is divine
    But not for swine
    Except the pigphone”

    Hee hee. Pigphone!

    Yeah, that rings true. I do remember it being only a few lines, and ending with something like “except the pigphone”.

    Possibly one of the more ridiculous parties we did. Unless we did one for Quicy Jones, the Quince we bought and drew sunglasses on. Or the Survivor Party. Or the Jon Ball.

    We had some good parties.
