I’ve fallen for it…

Today’s website is the rather wierd, but incredibly addictive, falling sand game. It’s amazing that something so simple can be so appealing. If you haven’t had a go yet, then try it – but preferably not in work time! It’s … Continue reading

Today’s website is the amazing art of American photographer Martin Waugh. He specialises in fast-shutter photography of drops of water, and, while that might not sound particularly exciting, the results are absolutely stunning. You can see his online portfolio at … Continue reading

What happens when you drop a mint into a bottle of diet Coke? Well, the people behind the Eepybird website (www.eepybird.com, in case you hadn’t guessed) decided to find out. And not only did they find out, they filmed their … Continue reading

Today’s website is one that mixes high art with low sport. Football Poets is a website of, well, poems about football. Love it!

Nothing to do with football today, as anyone listening to the show while an England match is on is very unlikely to care about it :-) So, today’s website is an excellent resource for finding useful, interesting or amusing quotes … Continue reading

Bin it!

A vaguely football-related website today, this is an online Flash game that’s been set up to advertise a certain recruitment agency. It’s still pretty nifty, though, and rather addictive. Check out Binball Wizard at www.binballwizard.com.

World Cup – Not!

I promised I’d try to avoid doing too many football-related websites during the World Cup. So, to start with, here’s one for the anti-cup brigade. The World Cup Widows Club is a site set up by a bunch of women … Continue reading

For today’s website, I’ve picked The Sheep Game, at (suprisingly enough) www.sheepgame.co.uk. Just round up those pesky little woolly jumpers and get them into the pen. It’s simple, but addictive! And check out the “office” version, replacing the sheep with … Continue reading
