Rock Snobbery Explained

Snobsite.com - I don't want to enjoy this site as much as I do, but I do. Their entry about Kraftwerk fails to mention their collective obsession with cycling threatening their existance as a band and leading to the incorporation of sounds from cycling in their recent Tour de France 12" (originally just a TV ident) and then LP - (see? I'm a natural)

small ribs in vienna

Following a pub review of beers and microbreweries in Vienna I set off last night to try the Plutzer Bräu pub. I ordered the small ribs - yes that was the small ribs in the picture above (phone camera, apologies etc.) The beer was good too - not too much like lager.

Something Awful

Something Awful's realistic joke punchlines: "A Blonde and a Brunette jump off a tall building at the same time. Who hits the ground first?

Both of them hit the ground at the same time. Hair colour doesn't affect acceleration due to gravity."

wien week4

Actually remembered to pack my camera this week, and left work at about 6.30 to take pictures of the Hundertwasser designed Kunsthaus. The cab driver yesterday (a retired tv producer - at least so he claimed) said that it was designed for children, but if you google Hundertwasser you'll find that as part of his career as an artist they let him loose on a powerstation as well, maybe it had swings.

The floors are uneven and the windows all different heights and sized, and it does appeal to my inner child at least.

The building is in a pretty run-down area alongside the river, and not half the tourist trap I was expecting. People actually live in the building, with a cafe/museum/shop in the bottom.
