Book Recommendation

Blind Faith by Ben Elton.

I've always enjoyed Elton's books ; I've never read anyone better at exposing the idiocy and hypocrisy running through society like the writing in a stick of rock. He lost the thread a little bit with Inconceivable and Blast From The Past, but those aside he's basically years ahead of his time. Check out Stark or This Other Eden in the context of what we now know about climate change, for example.

Anyway the latest is absolutely fucking brilliant. Do read it. At the very least you will see the implicit irony of my plugging it in a blog :-)

LOL Photoshopaments

Over on 2+2 there is a thread containing some of the funniest photoshops I have ever seen. Really top quality. Here's the thread. The fun starts at reply 125 and it just gets better and better. I think my favourite is the one where the dealer has just called Eli a calling station and Harman and Doyle are giving him the evil eye.

Best of all for me though there's one at the end (at time of posting), reply 213 where it's Ram thinking "He played horribly, but don't expect me to give him his money back". The pic was taken just after Ram beat me heads up in that limit shootout. I played horribly ! Shit, the guy must have been there ...

PS Get Real (2) will follow when I'm angry enough about something again.
