: GIANT BEE
  A fantastic song and animated movie.

  The two greatest talents on the Web have finally
  got together to work on the same project. Joel
  from Rathergood, and Nicecupofteaandsitdown's
  Stuart Payne have created "The Giant Bee".
 
  It's quite wonderful.
  
  "Joel wrote the Giant Bee song some time ago
  with his brother Alex", says Stuart, "it's 
  really infectious - I've been humming it
  constantly for the last 8 weeks."

  "After I heard it I had most of the ideas for
  the movie. It then took me about 2 months
  to put it all together."

  Watch and listen - if there was any justice
  in the world this would be the Christmas
  Number 1.

  Bee Fact: Bee's have huge cocks. In proportion
  to its body size, the genitalia of a drone bee
  are among the largest of any animal on earth.

: GALLERY OF WEIRD IMAGES ... TWO!
  
  On the B3ta site, nice people upload and make
  their own images. Recently, board member AndyK 
  compiled some of these pictures into a 
  flash gallery. This was so successful that
  he's decided to follow it up.

  "It's in the style of TV artist Tony Hart",
  says AndyK, "I've always been a big fan of his
  and can only hope to be a tenth of the man
  he is."

Sit back and enjoy.

Or step back in time and first the first gallery.

  (BTW: We are attempting to interview Tony Hart
  at the moment - his manager emailed us & said
  "Dear boy! Do you want miracles? He spent
  yesterday at the Abbey with the Children of
  Courage.")

-------------------------------------------------
  Bee Fact: Sex kills bees. The force of a 
  drone bees' ejaculation makes the head of his
  penis drop off. This acts as a plug to stop his
  semen from dripping out.

: SITES IN BRIEF
  Other stuff we've liked this week.

  Bejeweled - it's the most addictive game we've
  ever played. There is also a PalmPilot version
  which is an essential for train journeys.

  Google have archived all the Internet newsgroup
  postings since 1981. Superb fun - it's a like
  having a time machine.

  Kazoo songs - fantastic pop music played on the
  kazoo. The creator is looking for people to
  make flash videos to accompany his music.
  Go on - give him a hand.

  Bee Fact: Some bees are gay. If you place two
  queen bees together they will normally fight
  to the death. However, they have been
  occasionally observed making sweet tender love.
