: THE RETURN OF THE MISHEARD LYRICS
  Featuring Destiny's Child.
 
  At B3ta we've been running an occasional 
  series of animated misheard lyrics.

  Joel from Rathergood says, "I am a complete
  spacker and have cloth for ears. I thought it
  was about time for the public to hear the
  true lyrics to the Destiny's Child track, 
  Independent Woman."

  Listen vary carefully now:

  BTW: Previous misheard lyric animations
  can be found in issue 13 of this newsletter.

: B3TA ADVANCED CHALLENGE
  Not Photoshop, but Macromedia Flash.

  We've decided present a new challenge that
  will stretch even the advanced members of
  b3ta community.

  We've got a tune & we want you to make an
  flash video for it.

  Simon Panrucker has supplied the MP3, It's
  very funny, a live kazoo reworking of 
  Kernkraft 400's Zombie Nation.

: WEB WIZARDS: DESIGNERS WHO DEFINE THE WEB 
  UK web-art exhibition.

  The Design Museum in London is currently holding
  an exhibition featuring the work of Joshua Davis,
  Danny Brown and Yugo Nakamura, designers who have
  received much press recently.

  The first floor of the museum has been taken up
  with projected animations, iMacs and old gaming
  consoles.

  However, placing the work in this context adds
  little to the experience, simply serving as a
  stamp of approval from the non-web design
  community.

  So, save yourself six pounds and a cold walk,
  by viewing it online.

  Best stuff? Danny Brown's engaging, hypnotic
  and beautiful interactive work.

  Worst? Joshua Davis's soulless exercises
  in advanced technique.

: DRAW YOUR MUM & DAD
  And get featured in an online exhibition.

  Craig at Flipflopflyin is asking you to submit
  drawings of your parents for his website.

  He says, "I hope people do nice pictures of
  their parents. My site was a mum & dad free
  zone, all the people who live there seem to
  exist without their families."

  There are already 15 entries, check them out
  and then submit your own drawing (we have.)

  Each week we run a competition to test your

  Before Christmas we asked you to have a go
  on the Queen.
