I finally got my drew goodies last night: a t-shirt and book. The book is illustrated by s.britt who is very cool. You need to read drew:

"if you are wondering what the paint thinner is for here is a hint: HOW DO YOU SAY "NEW PAINT JOB FOR A 1994 NISSAN MAXIMA" IN BULGARIAN!!! (here is a hint for the hint, the answer does not contain any vowels)"

From a silly circular email, a great answer phone message:

Once this is done, our computers will be able to use the sound of your voice for literally thousands of illegal and immoral purposes. There is no charge for this initial consultation.

In case you've not been following the [naked thread](http://www.iamcal.com/topic.php?id=104), taxxon has made us some fantastic iamcal.com wallpaper. Grab it here: [http://www.filter-line.net/other/cal_wall.jpg](http://www.filter-line.net/other/cal_wall.jpg)

I got a fairly stalker-ish email this week: hello u do not know who i am but i know u! i am the man with the overgrown hedge and garden fence. If you know who sent it, own up!

If you've been reading the excellent diesel sweeties then you'll know that there's been an indie rock pete spinoff. It's very good.

I got a fantastic email this week: Before I had ever heard of Splott, I was in Swansea, in a cafe, being served by a madwoman named Mrs Miggins. She dished the peas onto my plate one at a time... It was a dreadful lunch! Cold peas and stiff fish, from all that dithering about with the spoon... I was informed later in the evening that the exemplary Mrs M had been thus afflicted 'since her honeymoon in Splott', back in 1970. Of course, I asked, 'Where is this Splott? Why would a woman be mad thirty years after honeymooning there? Was it the place, or the events that took place? Or a combination thereof?' Who can say...

I've seen Splott only from the train, roaring in at a hedgehog's pace from England, and had a look at the map, as well. The place appears to be quite...er... grid-like! : ) iamcal.com salutes the mighty Sandra

And now more members sites for the people i forgot earlier this week: taxxon: [http://www.filter-line.net/](http://www.filter-line.net/) jay: [http://www.thismanslife.co.uk/](http://www.thismanslife.co.uk/) harold: [http://www.fudged.org/](http://www.fudged.org/)

Snow.

It's the greatest thing to fall out of the sky. And fall it did, last night.

We had a proper snow storm. With wind and bad driving and everything. It's the coolest thing ever.

Drew is selling paintings. Some are utterly fantastic. I'm in the middle of an email conversation with him:

cal: your painting style is quite like sam's/ are you the same person? ps. i'd buy them all, especially 'trapped', but i'm poor after ordering an exploding dog book and shirt :(

drew: nope, here is a list of people who i am NOT: * sambrown * rstevens * narbotic * kompressor * el sucka * tristan farnon i get mail asking me those things pretty frequently, so no worries.

cal: i think maybe though your stories aren't entirely true. i'm guessing you're pretty intelligent, because your writing style is very clever. a new media professional perhaps?

drew: i'm guessing it's NUNYO BIDNESS

cal: hahaha. i guess so, but you've got to try and guess things about your heros, no?

drew: sure, if you like, it does not offend me. i just try to remind people that if i wanted to lose my job and have inter-net people coming to my house and calling me on the telephone that i would put my full name and social security number and the address and telephone number of the place i work on the inter-net :)

drew is fantastic, whoever he is :)
