Not Your Average Super Hero

Spiderman slammed for littering!
Sticky webs hanging from buildings cause major cleanup hassles for NY City Department


Ever wondered what happened to the trails of gluey arachnid goo the webbed one leaves in his ‘Friendly Neighbourhood’?

Doris Wydedopolas is an angry lady after finding her laundry covered in sticky spider web – courtesy of the masked crime fighter. “Well he can fly around all he wants, but is he going to pay for the dry-cleaning? I can’t remove this stuff from my Sunday dress!” Brandishing her spoiled polka dot dress, she showed our reporter her back yard where the clothes were hanging – strings of sticky goo had stuck her voluminous drawers together and was collecting flies. “With all the modern technology nowadays, why can’t he just use something that doesn’t stick?” her husband complained.

Aaron Giveadamovitz has also lodged a complaint after he found his cat dangling off the window ledge. “She must have been scared by the spinning Spider antics, and got caught in his web”, he said tearfully, “Sheeba is my life, I don’t know what I’d do without her. He’s a menace to all pet lovers in the city!” The NY Fire Department is also planning to charge the webbed avenger for the cost of retrieving the mewing moggy from the twentieth floor window.


No so ‘Friendly Neighbourhood’ after all!
After knocking on a few doors, our reporter found that it’s not such a ‘Friendly Neighourhood’ after all. A neighbour who declined to give his name, said “We don’t want those foreign people dressed in gay outfits! It threatens family values and takes our jobs. You tell them Joe Rougegorge said that!”. Another neighbour, a young student who was sleeping late, was the only one to voice support for the two-legged arachnoid – “Superheroes are always getting the bad end of the stick,” Peter Parker said, “everyone expects them to be perfect but they’re just ordinary people too you know!”

We tried to reach Spiderman for comment, but he was not available, however the City Department says that they will try to use more unconventional methods to contact him. It’s thought they may have approached Hancock as a consultant, but he's reported to have said that he had a party to go to.

Our Shrek Dogs

Well, I know I’m too late for the Wild Live Blogging, but I couldn’t come up with any ideas before and I’ve been busy. But last night we had some fun with our dogs :-)

At the AMBP Smashin’ Gathering we were given Shrek headbands (to be worn with caution though – thanks synical). So we thought it would be fun to see our dogs with them on. But it was more difficult than we thought…

First Lucky refused…

Then after some pleading and persuasion…

Oxygen from the past

Recently I chased up some old friends, and yesterday I got a call from an old friend who lives in Paris now. Since he was a teenager he had always been playing music, and now he’s in a band that’s being relatively successful in France – he’s just come back from playing at a festival this weekend, they even got a clip played on MTV France the other day!


Check them out on their MySpace or their official website (there's more music to listen to on their MySpace site) – their music is kind of slightly trippy 80’s style rock, and that throbbing bass is Stéphane :-)

He told me that he was going to take the plunge and quit his job to go full-time on the musique – so I wish him and the band… Bonne Merde! :-D
