Fake Britain: A Map Of Fictional Locations | Londonist
Includes Leadworth, Scarfolk, Qwghlm, Beanotown, and, of course, Llareggub, but is unaccountably lacking in Little Bazeley and Little-Storping-in-the-Swuff, and I was hoping that it might finally tell me where the Village is.

Egypt’s Huge Sarcophagus Yields Three Possible Warriors | Archaeology Magazine
I'm not entirely sure what we were all expecting to find innan Ominous Black Sarcophagus. Although, given how much it looks like a photon torpedo casing, I thought it would be more likely to find someone's neatly folded robes than an actual corpse.

The Prisoner 001 (2018) | View Comic
Yes folks, it's a modern sequel/revival! (Although I think they have the chessboard in the wrong part of the Village, but perhaps they've relandscaped the lawn in the 52 years since we last saw it.) It's being released one episode per month, with #2 already available. Be seeing you.

Beer and the Apocalypse | Restricted Data
And lo, the End of Days is upon us. The maniacs blew it up, goddamn them, goddamn them to hell. Mushroom clouds adorn the blighted horizon, on the roads it is a whiteline nightmare, dogs and cats living together, etc. But take heart! for the beer is probably okay. Although, in a grave threat to capitalism, radioactive fallout could affect its resale value in unpredictable ways.

Today is the 20th anniversary of 1997. People did different things then, like watch Brass Eye on its original broadcast. Looks like I've missed the screening of this (and the York one), but there's still... um... Sheffield? Halifax?

Our RoboCop Remake
Now /this/ is how you do a remake: get fifty independent filmmakers and groups to do one scene apiece, each in their own key, of course, until the whole place is just soggy with nostalgia. Stay tuned for the brilliant contemporary ballet rendition of scene 18. And lots of dick jokes.

Campaigners wield marker pens in war against punctuation cull | UK news | theguardian.com
Gangs of feral grammarians roam the embattled streets of Cambridge, marker pens at the ready! Their battlecry: If You Tolerate This, Then Your Commas Will Be Next! Kathy Salaman, director of the Cambridgeshire-based Good Grammar Company, said [...] "If I was walking along with a marker pen in my pocket and I saw a missing apostrophe, it would be difficult to resist the temptation to fill it in." That's "if I /were/", Kathy. Are you quite sure you're qualified?

Salmond accused of ‘false statements’ about detention of You’ve been Trumped film-maker Anthony Baxter
Stellar muckraking from the Hootsman once again. Be sure to read the final paragraph. Remember alweays that it's been revealed that the junior treasury minister Michael Portillo carries a sawn-off shotgun to constituency meetings, corners children in parks and chews their cheeks, and has frequent sexual intercourse with stray animals, claiming "As long as it's got a backbone, I'll do it". That story we reported last week and have since discovered it to be untrue.
