A Whole New World

No, this isn't about a post regarding the musical offering from Peter Andre & Katie Price - although if you ever need cheering up, read the reviews on Amazon:
A Whole New World - Amazon Reviews

I have just returned from 5 days in windswept, rainy and internet-free Norfolk.  When you go away from home for a week or so, the chances are that when you return not much has changed and you (or maybe just 'I') bumble on through our existence.

I did find some sporadic connections to keep in touch with the 21st Century - I took the opportunity that was presented and created a couple of Fantasy Football teams for the new season, checked the progress of a couple of Amazon orders, looked at a couple of things on wikipedia (Dadaism and Pop Art (ooo, hark at me looking at fancy artistic movement stuff on the internet)) and logged on to the Word website

As mentioned previously, The Word Magazine is closing.  When I logged on I was presented with a message informing me that as of 9am Tuesday 17th July, the website (and all other online accounts (Twitter etc) would be closed.
Fortunately, there are a few more savvy, organised and capable people than me about.
A new site has been built by a member of the previous community, and is being administered/sorted by a couple of others (chaps, take a bow - you know who you are).
If you're interested in music, films, TV, books, indeed any form of popular culture then please come and have a look, join in and be seduced by the general good nature of it's contributors, the breadth of subjects covered, not forgetting food-based puns applied to film and song titles, interspersed with liberal dollops (oo-er) of schoolboy humour and general irreverence
"Gentle Musings On The Byways of Popular Culture" - that's its byline, and a pretty good summary of what it's all about:

The Afterword
