: CRAB-HEADED MAN TERRORISES LONDON
    
  Here at B3ta, we like to make dreams come true
  - and so when Joel Veitch of Rathergood came 
  to us and said, "Can you make me a huge crab
  head and let me run around London?" we said,
  "No problem."

  See the results, they are pretty cool.

: B3TA CHALLENGE
  And this time it's different ...

  Each week we run a competition to test your
  creative skills. Normally we ask you to
  photoshop an image. 

  This time we thought we'd really stretch you.
  We have made a "finger crab" for you to cut
  out and wear - a small version of the one
  that Joel wore round London this week.

  We want you to print it out, wear it, do
  something cool & photograph it. Oh, and
  show us your results - of course.

  We are really excited to see what you can
  do.

: IS RUPAUL COMPLETELY MAD?
  We interviewed him - and it made no sense.

  Do you remember RuPaul? He was the tall black
  transvestite who once sang with Elton John on
  the "Don't go Breaking my Heart" single.

  And now he's back, running his own
  weblog - written in a breathlessly bitchy
  style.

  We got in touch - and his answers were
  so nonsensical that it's best if you 
  just read them and make up your own mind.
  
  B3ta, "Why did you start a weblog?"
  RuPual, "i want to serve the children multi
           dimension."
  B3ta, "What are the best reactions that
         it's provoked?"
  RuPual, "people sending me money for the
           crap i sale."
  B3ta, "Can you give us some brief
         biographical details?"
  RuPaul, "you're a doll! love ya heaps, ru."

: BUFFY SWEARING UPDATE

  A couple of weeks ago, we made "Buffy's Swearing
  Keyboard." 

  We've really enjoyed the feedback, our favourite
  comment being:

  "I'm going to get a T-Shirt made", said Chimp 
  from uk.media.dvd, "with xylophone buggery
  printed on it."

  We also got "Site of the Week" in Kerrang!
  magazine. This made Joel of Rathergood so
  happy, that he went a built a small tribute
  to the power of rock.

  Watch it - for it features Def Leppard:
