Hi:)

   A little while ago, I read an amazing online story.  Presented as a series of letters it opened with a correspondence between two friends discovering that a third went on a shooting spree, repeating the phrase 'The Door is Open' over and over.  The investigation leads to an incredibly strange house, a livejournal kept by the only person to survive living there and the realisation that something very odd appears to have evolved just next to humanity.

It is quite, quite brilliant.  It's apparently being made into a movie.  It's called The SOMETHING (Sounds like Dionysus or Dionaceas) House and I cannot find it.  Anywhere.

Sound familiar to anyone?

The Dionaea house (http://www.dionaea-house.com/)

It's named after Dionaea Muscipula a.k.a. the venus flytrap.

Which town?  It might not be that great of a reward.

Oh, great... just as I was getting "Copacabana" out of my head....


For you youngsters who may have missed Lipps, Inc.'s brilliant disco smash, please enjoy a free listen... and blame Alasdair!!!

(Al, when I put the acoustic/emo cover version on my first album, I expect you to buy a copy.  :) )

This Wiki Won't Wrangle Itself!

I finally published my book - Tad's Happy Funtime is on Amazon!

Given that this is Alisdair's thread I'm trying to come up with a clever line incorporating 'Pseudopod' and 'Pseudo Echo.'

Nope, I've got nothin'.
