Thirteenth Thing

Despite the scathing comments on last week’s The Now Show, I love Wikipedia and find it a reasonably dependable resource as long as you discount the rabbits’ eggs. The random page link generated a huge range of information and suggested that my interests are lamentably narrow – I clicked more than 300 times before running out of steam on the Black Sabbath Discography page and being reminded that I was only 14 when Paranoid was released. Not that I didn’t learn something along the way – had never considered before that the Walloon Parliament even existed or that there was anything to know about Tweedy’s Crab-Eating Rat.

The BSD discussion page had just a few contributions from clearly dedicated fans with names like Drewcifer. Someone thought a list of tribute albums would be a nice project and someone else was outraged that a Best Of album had been omitted from the list. There wasn’t really that much to discuss!

Current events on the world stage include the abolition of cross-border passport checks in Switzerland, first time democratic elections in Sark, bomb casualties in Peshawar and student riots in Greece.  Meanwhile, with priorities bang on, UK headlines concentrate on wondering whether  Katie Price is pregnant.
