Womble Porn

So Hull City it was then – thanks ‘Moley’ – but next time I’m with my four year old nephew, I’m going to teach him the rules for ‘colouring in’ words, start him off on some easy ones, and then give him ‘Hull city’ to do, and see how he struggles. /evil laugh/

Big BrotherSo let’s see how you fare with todays pop-quiz then hotshots, as I see (with a great deal of disappointment) than Channel 4 have now signed up Endemol to do two more Big Brothers taking us to 2007, which is quite depressing as I hoped that this years would be the last and we could all move away from chav-TV and onto something slightly better .. but no. So just to prove how much we don’t care, can anyone (Without looking them up on the inter-web) name ALL the previous ‘winners’ from the previous seasons of Big Brother. I bet no one can get them all.

Geofftech (as noted in yesterdays comments) is of course a family website (just), but I’ve got to get a little dirty now so you might want to avert your childrens eyes as I talk about Womble Porn for a moment. That’s right Womble Porn. This phrase is (of course) the one that generates a hit in Google to a blog that I link to – Random Reality – except I have no idea how this came about or who discovered it.

(I’ll just wait here for a second whilst you nip off to Google and go and try it … go on … i’ll still be here when you hit your ‘back’ button)

In the same vein, I was reminded of this when Allan Williams – a 50p contributor from a few days ago – got in touch to tell me he was quite thrilled that the phrase “Allan Williams Wanker” now makes him appear in the first page of Google hits too – and again I have no idea what on earth would have made him type that into Google in the first place to discover that. (Incidentally, I just found another Google ‘variation’ completely by accident, as someone has rather sneakily registered www.googlle.co.uk as well)

I also suspect that this may be the last time that something like this happens though as my new blogging software has the entries tied up in an internal database that I suspect the web-bots and crawlers of all the popular search engines can’t get into. Time will tell.

And I actually have two 50p ‘write ups’ to do at the moment, but I’ll do ’em tomorrow, including one from a Canadian traveler who I met for the first time today, all because of my Audioscrobbler profile.

    Sorry, just wanted to be first for once …

    That’s ok.

    I think this is one of the dullest blog entries I’ve ever written. Sometimes less is more ‘n’ all that. Having said that, i’ve got a complete corker coming up tomorrow…

    G.

    oh god. I knew three of the Big Brother winners without looking it up. Is anyone more shameful? Oh, and I saw that Nadia walking down the local high street last year. I managed to stop myself asking for an autograph.

  4. Ian says:

    Oh, and “ha ha! Busted!”

    Was it wise to link to audioscrobbler?

    Appologies – I had actually changed the colour of the answers – but Geoff must have set WordPress to remove extra html code from replies.

    ‘Family friendly?’

    Dear me, Geoff! I never thought you’d stoop so low!

    When I lived in Kentish Town the recently-evicted BB contestants were staying somewhere near my house and in the space of several days I saw Federico and Nush (remember them) walking down the street as I walked home from the station.

    Just thought I’d share that with you …

  9. F5 Chris says:

    Ah, Kentish Town.

    Not really a Town, and not really in Kent.

    You’ve got to love places with such misleading names..

  10. Mark Garth says:

    Im proud of the fact that I know none of the BB contestants and would have struggled to name any of the winners, had I not read the names in previous messages. Bliss!

  11. Mikey says:

    Good choice on the Busted!! May i recommend, Busted – Where is the love?
    Truly Inspirational

  12. Administrator says:

    What was that Ian? Was that “Thanks for that copy of that DVD you sent me Geoff”, and not having a pop at my musical choice? Yes.. I thought that’s what it was.

    G.

  13. Ian says:

    Yes. That’s exactly it. How did you read it?

  14. F5 Chris says:

    Air Hostess,
    I Like the way you dress

    A genius bit of lyricism! Move over Townshend, Waters, Lennon and Bowie!

    I can tell you the genesis of the Womble Porn thing, cos basically, it’s my fault 🙂

    About a year ago, I met up with Tom after he very kindly sent me a spare copy he had of a book called Secret London. We wound up at the Tate Modern in the last few days of the Weather Project and sat there and nattered for a while. In amongst that nattering was a conversation on blogs and weird search results you get, and I told him how I’d once found a blog called Womble Porn and been absolutely gutted to find out that it didn’t, in fact, contain any womble porn whatsoever, and that I’d since become the top result for womble porn in google and occasionally, got a few people coming through who were looking for it.

    He thought this was hilarious and then wrote about it on his blog to see if it’d increase his traffic. Of course, he’s now way more popular than I am, and has the phrase on every page courtesy of his sidebar, and so he’s stolen my number one spot, the rotter.

    So now you know 🙂

    A while ago I did a test of what happens when you add O’s to Google, and how many you have to go through before you hit a site that’s not been registered yet.

    You can find it here. It’s probably seriously out of date now, though.

    Now this just makes me think that I want to come up with some totally surreal phrase (your suggestions are welcome) and stick it in my sidebar, just to become a pointless google top hit too! Hmmm…

    Ian : anytime you want to have a proper ‘argument’ about music, then bring it on!

    Apart from the fact that you’ve been too lazy not to discover my Audioscrobbler link before (it’s been on my menus for the past five months…), if you seriously think that liking a ‘Busted’ song it wrong or bad, then I’m going to have to vehemently disagree with you.

    No music is shit. It’s just a matter of personal preference. Just because I like a song that you don’t doesn’t make it shit, it just means that you don’t like it.

    And also … never be embarassed to like a cheesy song people! Music for me isn’t just always about the tune or the lyrics, bus is often linked to a memory of a time of your life or something that you were doing when that song was around.

    e.g. Everytime I hear B*Witched’s “C’est la vie” – which i confess IS on my iPod, and ISN’T a very good song musically (in my opinion) – it still makes me smile as it brings back good memories.

    Okay? 🙂

  18. F5 Chris says:

    *insert arrogant statement about shit music and how amazing I am here*

  19. Brian says:

    quin,

    I had intermittent success all the way to http://www.gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooogle.com

    33 o’s. wow!

  20. Ian says:

    ouch!

    I was actually quite disturbed to see how much of your top artists I liked (well, until the unholy trinity of Dido, Keane and Coldplay). Maybe it should have read “Ha Ha! Busted! 🙂 ”

    Anyway, here are two links I saw that I thought you might like (both from Shiny Shiny)
