Ladies!  Do you like playing videogames?  Do you like flirting?  Well, now you can combine the two and get PAID for it!

GameCrush, a new website service for over eighteens, gives men the chance to “pay and play” with a pretty girl (termed as a ‘PlayDate’) on Xbox Live or a simple flash game, such as checkers.  The girls in turn provide two types of ‘date’:

“We have created two broad categories, ‘Flirty’ and ‘Dirty’ to help the PlayDate define and match her mood of gaming interaction and experience with those of the players. You can choose either option or both depending on how you feel!”

A single game with a PlayDate will cost $8.25 (£5.50), with Xbox Live matches running for ten minutes, and Flash games for six.

Upon the launch of the service this Wednesday, the GameCrush website actually crashed due to too much traffic, so clearly there must be some demand – although we think most of the visitors were simply curious to see what the 1200 registered PlayDates look like.

We have to admit, we are intrigued…  If slightly confused.

Sci-Fi Social Networking March 18, 2010

Think of a professional social networking site, such as LinkedIn.  Then add planets.  And spaceships.  And William Shatner.  Mix them altogether, and you have myouterspace.com

Launched by Mr Shatner himself, the site is aimed at creative people with a range of skill sets, who will be able to become ‘citizens’ of one of six ‘Planets’ that matches their talents – including graphic design, writing, acting, music, games development and film and TV production.

From then on, to be honest, it all becomes a bit confusing.

Those who have become citizens of the planets will then be able to take part in projects overseen by a range of ‘virtual production companies’, or as they’re known in MyOuterSpace world, ‘Starships’. Each Starship has a ‘captain’, who will venture around the planets in his starship collecting talent – ‘the Starships will host Crew Members from the various United Planets, each specializing in a different Artistic talent,’ the site explains.

Rrrrrright.  Gotcha.

It’s Good To Graze March 3, 2010

It’s hard enough trying to reach your 5-a-day when a Rustler’s microwave chicken burger is often within your reach.  If you’re anything like BWT, your week begins with good intentions, and ends with McDonalds.

Thankfully, some clever bugger has come up with a rather nifty solution.  The best way of describing it is like when your mum used to make you packed lunches at school.  Only this time the lunches are packed with yummy healthy stuff, and your mum is a company called Graze.

Graze creates handy little boxes of prepared fruit, nuts and seeds.  Each box counts towards your government recommended 5-a-day.  The idea is that by ‘grazing’ on healthy foods, you keep your energy and bloody sugar levels in check – making it less likely you’ll reach out for that three o’clock Mars Bar.

What’s more, you have a massive say in what they put in it, thanks to an easy-to-use website, where you can rate each item of food available, from ‘bin it’ (so you’ll never receive it), to ‘love it’ (you’ll receive it very frequently.)

There are three to four portions in each box, depending on your selection.  You pick how many you want per week, and when you want each selection delivered.  One Graze box costs £2.99, and it’ll even fit through your letterbox.  How’s that for convenience?

Plus they’ve just introduced a whole bunch of new tempting choices, from green raisins (they taste much nicer than they sound) to deglet nour dates.

We could waffle on, but you’d be much better off checking out their website, to be honest.

P.S. Our favourite is “apple strudle”!

Sneakily comparing boob sizes with women in the gym changing rooms is soooo last year.

Thanks to an awesome little interactive web page from primaxstudio, you can now compare EVERY BLOODY THING IN THE UNIVERSE, from Quantum Foam to, well – the universe itself.

Okay, they might not have stuck your boobs in there, but we’re sure they’re working on it.  Plus it has really nice music.  Seriously.  Forget that pan pipe nonsense.  This is the future.

Check it out here.

New Get Cutie Website – Now Live February 20, 2010

Yippie!  Get Cutie, one of our favourite clothing retailers, has completely revamped and redesigned its website.

The Get Cutie shop, based in Brighton, is well worth the trip if you are in the area.  But if you aren’t, navigating their website can be a pain in the neck – until now.

Gone are the teeny tiny swatches that gave you an unclear picture of what their (beautiful) patterns really looked like.  It’s now super clear and easy to see exactly what you’re getting.  Plus, they’ve added a whole bunch of new fabrics – we’re rather taken with the “Head in the Clouds” print (below.)

And if you have a little person if your life (a child – not Danny DeVito), you can soon deck them out in Get Cutie gear too!  MATCHING RED RIDING HOOD SKIRTS FTW!

Gay Porn? I Go Direct Gov February 10, 2010

Whoopsie!

The Department for Children, Schools and Families had a bit of explaining to do when a mother of two spotted the children’s section of Directgov website sporting a banner advertising Buster’s World – a gay porn fetish site.

The story was then picked up by The Drum, which was then picked up by The Register, who contacted the DCSF.  In a statement, they said:

“The naming of this webpage was clearly a mistake and we regret that the supplier’s usual thorough checking procedures when creating web content seem to have failed. When this was brought to our attention we urgently took the site down, pending a rename, to avoid any further issues.

The name concerned was new and had not yet been promoted widely to young people.

The safety of children on the internet is of paramount importance and we will be looking at the procedures of our suppliers to ensure this does not happen again.”

Quick!  Someone create an MPs expenses scandal to create a diversion!  Oh wait…
