Your mission, should you choose to accept it...

Interesting the different ways a single story can be reported. An article that the BBC reports as "Goths 'more likely to self-harm'" is reported, much more interestingly in New Scientist as "Goth Subculture May Protect Vulnerable Children". (To be honest, the phrase that struck me as the most important was “However, the study was based on small numbers and replication is needed to confirm our results.” ) (Reminder to self -- renew New Scientist subscription.)

Edited to add, nothing beats the Scotsman's take on the story "Half of Young Goths have tried Suicide" ("Yeah. Well, I tried it, yeah. We were young. Suicide was just how we got our kicks. I mean, it was all right. But I, you know, I gave it up when everybody started doing it...")

The wall of people-who-have-been-cast in Stardust at Pinewood now includes on it Mr Peter O'Toole, Miss Billie Whitelaw and Mr Ricky Gervais.

It starts shooting on location in Skye next week. I don't know if having the multitudinous readers of a blog concentrate on making sure the weather in Skye is as unseasonably clear, warm and sunny as possible starting next Wednesday will do any good, but it couldn't hurt. (I won't be there, alas, although Skye is possibly my favourite place in the world, whatever the weather.)

I see from this morning's papers that the world of extremely short tribute bands has been plunged into conflict as MiniKiss takes on TinyKiss. For some reason I like the idea of a battle between extremely short Abba tribute bands better, but that's probably just me.
