: DALEKS AUDITION FOR POP IDOL
  With Dead Kennedys cover version.
  
  Currently the UK media is saturated with Pop Idol
  coverage - a TV show to find a new singing star.

  Frankly we're all rather bored of it, and 
  we thank James Craven and Joel Veitch from 
  Rathergood for coming to the rescue.

  In their world - Pop Idol features Daleks
  singing punk.

  It's better that way.

: NEW ADVANCED FLASH CHALLENGE
  With weird science song
  
  At B3ta we love setting challenges, we have
  our weekly photoshop challenge for all you
  photoshop nutters, and recently we've run
  a flash challenge - for the ambitious
  people who want to make web movies.

  We've dug out a fantastic tune, called 
  "Why Does The Sun Shine." It's taken from
  a 1950's science-themed educational record.

  We want you to animate the song, and post it
  on the b3ta site.

  Download the song - it's a treat.

: CAT TOILET DANGER
  More rubbish about kittens.

  What is it with the Internet and kittens? 

  We haven't got a clue, but we're not ones
  to buck a trend, we'd rather leap on it
  and see what happens next.

  Here is our slide show warning of the dangers
  of leaving the toilet seat up with a cat
  in the house.

  an experience somewhere between art and shit.
