This site was down yesterday because it got ‘dugg’. And for why? “Since I’ve submitted it to the b3ta weekly newsletter, it’s spiralled out of control! 280,000 hits a day on this thing”.

Well done them. Let’s give them a bit more traffic, eh? I mean look. What do you see here:

Beefcake - cake made from beef

A cake you say? Icing you say? Nuh uh. GO AND FIND OUT NOW.

A Night Out On The Pop (World)

FT + Pumpkin Publog/7 comments • 2,845 views

popworld.jpg” Popworld is a TV show. Popworld is a radio show. Popworld is a magazine. But who knew Popworld was also a theme bar? Actually, Popworld the bar in Liverpool (my only experience of its existence) used to be a Flares, and seems to have taken on the décor of said seventies theme bar. There is a Reflex around the corner (eighties theme bar) and ads in the Popworld’s windows suggest the two chains are still linked. “Pay once to get into Reflex and Popworld” the ad screams. I didn’t.

So I did not get to check to see if Alex, Alexa*, Miquita, Simon or the sad forgotten people who presented Popworld pre-S&M days were in there. I assumed they were not. I also assumed that this bar brand has little if anything to do with the TV show. The tell-tale sign to me was a completely different logo. And no robots or horses inside.
