We’ve got a Kauri wood candle holder dated at over 30,000 years old, a present from a friend in NZ. It’s extremely tacky thanks to the cheap gold-metal fitting that’s been fastened into the candle hole. 33,000 years, and what is some lovely fine-grained wood got turned into artless cheap-looking tourist bollocks. There’s something profound in that about human nature.
Number one Son. Number one! Not Really, the post isn’t linked only my blog itself, too bad.
I really don’t have the Google Juice for anything beyond the most trenchant of topics (*cough* Drinking Games *cough*) but while I’ve been testing out Piwik as an open-source replacement for google analytics (that we can more tightly control and use for free internally) I’ve been amused by what search terms constantly show up (horsecock being number one for AGES)
So; thank-you to everyone who saw “Harry Potter is a Dick” on my blog and clicked on it, knowing that indeed Harry IS a dick and why do we keep paying for Harry Potter stuff anyway? Oh yeah, because it is entertaining.
