- The Million Dollar Homepage has sold every single bloody pixel Some of them are being resold by rather unscrupulous people, but what the hey. Obviously you have to hate the person concerned because he thought of it and you didn’t. I can’t imagine what good Googlejuice people get from this…
- Laura Craik talks about how Brokeback Mountain is soft porn for girls I’m kind of delighted that she feels this way, although how she got more titillation from it than I did escapes me. Maybe I got too caught up in the plot or something. Who knew women could be more shallow than gay men!?

- The US version of ‘Wife Swap” features a woman called Margaret who at the end of one episode slightly freaks out Protesting about the ungodliness of the home she’d been visiting, she loses her mind in front of the cameras ranting about Darksiders and the devil. Watch to the end of this terrifying piece of Google Video for the pay off. If you can…
