Planet BNM

The homepage of the local Brighton New Media mailing list has had a facelift. It's now a very nifty aggregator of Brighton geek content.

Heavy Artillery Graffiti

These are the guys that painted the walls across from the Clearleft office. Every day, at least 10 people take pictures of their work.

Play You Have To Burn The Rope, a free online game on Kongregate

Burn the rope, kill the baddies and save the entire planet. Well, not really. But it's worth winning this game (by burning the rope) to hear the song.

Jelly Bed

I like it when geek travellers from afar pay Brighton a visit. This weekend Matt and Cindy came to town. This neatly coincided with Jina’s visit. She’ll be be partaking in The Future Of Web Design this week so right now she’s acclimatising here in Brighton.

There are two things I do whenever I have a visitor staying over:

  1. update my bedroll,
  2. try to convince the visitor to eat .

Shaun wouldn’t do it. Derek wouldn’t do it. Dave wouldn’t do it. Jina did it.

Jina's jellied eels Om nom bleurgh! An acquired taste

It strikes me that this practice of telling someone they are about try a local delicacy when in fact they are about to consume slimy fish in salty gunk is the gastronomic equivalent of rickrolling. But with jelly. It’s jellyrolling.
