Linking Is My Lukewarm Sick

Simon has been so productive just lately Dead Kenny thinks some kind of content capping measure needs to be introduced to stop him showing the rest of us up (either that or we'll have to contaminate his drugtest sample). Witness his friendly chat with (swoon) Emmy The Great and an introduction to a very interesting new comic which combines music, magic, mystery and lots of good jokes, apparently. Form an orderly queue at Nostalgia & Comics at the weekend, then...

Elsewhere (and in no particular order)...

Brian dePalma's adaptation of The Black Dahlia is set to open the Venice Film Festival. Download the trailer here.

Let Me Be Your Fantasy (Not Safe For Work) - K-Punk dissects Cronenberg's adaptation of Ballard's Crash as part of an inter-weblog symposium on pornography.

Cronenberg's next film is Eastern Promises starring Naomi Watts and Viggo Mortensen, due to begin filming in London in November. Watts is all set for a dark and twisted 2007 as she also has the lead in Michael Haneke's Funny Games remake.

Found In The Margins is an online magazine investigating the reading habits of various musicians, including PV faves The Constantines and Tegan And Sara. (via Simon).

Keep Hope Inside contains mp3 blogging goodness, specifically of interest to audio Anglophiles.

UK guitar sales hit £100m high. Time to get into keyboards then, people (not literally, of course, that would be silly and possibly dangerous).

Still bored? Check out Jim Rockford's answermachine messages (via LMG).

Right, Dead Kenny's off to see a man about some halibut. Back after the beep!

Heh! You'll be glad to know I'm in a place far away from civilisation(west Wales) next week so everyone else can do some catching up.

Given the football transfers today, I suspect you are one of the happiest people around.

How on earth you managed it, I don't know.

Yeah, Paul (how ya doin' btw?), been buzzin' a bit with the news, I think the subject deserves a post of its' own (watch this space). Young Ben was the one who broke the news to me, as I was too busy at work to keep an eye on the net.

Have a good break, Simon, but knowing you you'll be having 'friendly conversations' with all the main movers from the burgeoning Cardiff scene, so I'm still expecting updates...

Having problems updating the site at the moment, so here's an attempted sneak preview for all you comments-readers -

Knock Me Down With Some Feathers, Clever Tevez

No point talking to Dead Kenny about anything else today other than the news that my beloved West Ham United have pulled off arguably the transfer coup of the decade, with a deadline-day double swoop for two of the top young stars in world football in Argentinian World Cup players Carlos Tevez and Javier Mascherano.

No doubt there's more to the story than meets the eye, and with the transfer window still tantalisingly ajar for a few more hours there may yet be a sting in the tail in the form of one of our existing young stars being pushed through the exitdoor to finance the deal (Reo-Coker to ManUre remains a distressing possibility). There'll be plenty of time to worry about that later, for now all Hammers fans should simply celebrate how far we've come...after all, eighteen months ago we were sniffing around the likes of Bournemouth and Yeovil Town for £250k utility players!

Come on, you Irons!

I'm alright thanks mate - although somewhat gutted that we signed Sibierski, and you've signed Tevez.

Jealousy is a terrible thing.

Heh, well that's Glenn Roeder's transfer 'nous' for you, although I can see baldy-bloke Sibierski becoming a bit of a cult at St James' Park, a bit like that Georgian fella you had in the 90's who's name escapes me (although I do remember he celebrated scoring a goal by kicking seven levels of shit out of pitch-side advertising hoardings).

Temuri Ketsbaia - whose surname fitted beautifully to the tune of Kum By Yah.

Yeah, that's the fella. Temuri Ketsbaia - I wonder why that name just didn't trip off my tongue, eh?
