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
