If you like to read about Angelina buying Brad a waterfall then this is the infographic for you. Celebrities are outrageous gift givers (and receivers) and if keeping up with who's been given what is becoming a bit of a struggle our Celebrity Gifts: A Timeline infographic can help. We've plotted the best and worst of presents involving the A-list ...

 

Just a thought for the benefit of the polar bears - nitrous oxide, as contained in cream chargers (in places such as here) is becoming a bigger contributor to global warming, climate change than all of the deforestation in Brazil combined with all of the power stations in China and all of the cars in the USA....

 

I was just thinking about the fizzled out campaign to get x-pole dancing into the Olympics as an exhibition event - I think the short burst of publicity was driven by the likes of Dancing Poles and their strive for the mainstream. I actually took the time to youtube a few of the 'World Champion' poledancers of the sport - they ...

 

Recipease Brighton is hosting an event for Qype - Sarah Drinkwater will be at the helm. I will be outside Recipease waving a placard and asking for my money. Or I may be inside stuffing tagliatelle into Qypers. That should garner positive reviews on Qype!

 

The basic premise of sites such as Qype, Trip Advisor and Yelp is that consumers will honestly review their experiences and what these reviews lack in  quality verbiage they make up for in integrity. The consumers may - or may not heed the reviews but that is not where the value of these reviews actually lies. I'd like to give ...

 

This article deals with the history of hi-tech toasters - but follow this link to compare and buy a see through toaster.     This transparent glass toaster is almost magical in it's toasting abilities, watch the video to see all of the powers it manages to hide behind see thru sides.  ...

 

I was just doing a bit of research to see how many people are googling Satachi Trade, to see what percentage of them are finding their way onto the Hussy. And I found out that over half the people are actually looking for the Satchi ... as in Saatchi and Saatchi or Saatchi Gallery. Oh the problems of being anagramitic. Personally, ...

 

Before Qype were on the scene with their user submitted reviews, the relationship between Brighton's press and media involves congratulatory backslapping leading to heavy petting them frottaging with  happy finishing for all. All except us, the consumer. The media and businesses are left sticky but happy, whereas we are left aching and unfulfilled. Qype UK are doing their bit to ...

Is there anything more depressing than working between Christmas and New year? The death of a loved one? Maybe. Your partner running off with a longshoreman from the local port? Possibly. The ratings for reality TV shows and circulation of celebrity gossip magazines? It’s close but doesn’t quite hit the giddy lows of sitting in an office that is practically ...

 

Madame Geisha Brighton. If you say something is true does it make it so? I am the best - Madame Geisha Restaurant says so.

 

This is just a google test, so don't waste your time reading it. Satachi Trade is a trading bank in Brighton. And I am just using this post to test the number of people searching for this particular business in Brighton.

The upcoming Brighton Craft Fair made me think of this chimeric ceramica that I saw at Ink-d some time or other a bit ago. So, will the crafty collective be displaying crochet tea cozies and evening class thumb post. Or will they be bringing out something a bit

Fans of the five finger discount should definitely be considering a trip to Jamie’s Italian on Black Lion Street. If you enjoy the crafty acquisition of ‘souvenirs’ from the scene of every good time, then forget the food, tasty though it is, and concentrate on the loot.

 

White Night @ Penny Arcade Somebody is playing tricks with time. Tonight you have been given one extra hour. Your night, your year and your life have all been granted a sixty-minute extension. So what are you going to do with it?

 

Love Music, Hate Racism... is it really the simple? Let us consider some of the other possibilities..

The Brighton Comedy Festival kicks off tomorrow, and it sort of appeared without me seeing it coming. Paramount Comedy pulled out of the festival because they didn't find it funny anymore. And it seems they took the ad spend with them. Google "Brighton Comedy Festival 2009"  The Hussy is on the first page, for any large event this place is normally ...

Please vote in this poll (below) to help me decide if Donatello's Restaurant in Brighton is witty and knowing or simply shite. Prawn Cocktail - soggy prawns, probably defrosted under a worn tap, gloopy-snot sauce, limp lettuce Garlic Mushrooms - floating in vegetable oil, like turds in the med. Pizza -  half a pound of dehomoginised economy cheddar saturating the dough with oil And ...

 

The Half Sisters, (c) Ben Petrucci  To be more precise it is Sister, Sister, Half Sister. But Bros allowed Craig to join in so there is family misnomer precedent in band names. Actually one third of the trio are half sisters so the name is 67% accurate. The Brighton band are fun. And ...

 

I had mainly been ignoring the Brighton Art Fair. That is because I thought it was just some regional craft fair. But then I received a mail out; a picture of a giant cat with fairy wings. Angela Lizon, Colossal Cats This image is enough to give me faith in the quality ...

 

 It pleasures me to help promote the Brighton Live Music Festival. Why? because it is five days of FREE events that work to promote local artists. That means free gigs. WIN-WIN-all around. Brighton Live is a non-profit organisation which makes a pleasant change in a town filled with greedy fuckers. At the core of the festival is a showcase of new and ...

 

Who would have thought it? there is a battle raging in the world of recycling. Firstly, at the start of this week,  a freecycle splinter group was formed GreenCycleSussex . This is the moderators from Brighton Freecycle going it alone. Then, some dude called Larry informed me that the original freecycle group is still going. So, who, what, why? It is ...

Imbue's Brighton   In the beginning was the word. And the word was brief, succinct and to the point. "Let there be light." not a lot of verbosity in that statement. "Thou shalt not kill." no work for a sub-editor on that text. And Imbue has done the same-same with this print. ...

It's a bit like karaoke...except it's poledancing poleoke And just like Karaoke - some people will really take it seriously and others will cheese it up for their pals. But unlike karaoke - you can use it as an excuse to show your underwear to strangers in a bar. Poleoke takes place at the ...

Gang Up Magazine want you, (yes you) to help them celebrate their launch. It's never really polite to refuse an invitation, no matter how convincing an excuse you have concocted. So polish up your party shoes and make your merry way to the Old Music Library, for 8pm or just after, depending on your particular adherence to the whole 'fashionably late' ...

 

Something New  - and possibly original? In the swamp of shite that is the Brighton magazine scene there may be something interesting about to happen.

This is not some Jamie aping exercise, it is a truly original idea. Ainsley Harriott is coming to Brighton to campaign against the humble chip. The not-quite-celebrity chef has been struck by the idea that there are too many chips in circulation. And unless something can be done about it they will develop AI and start the Final War. Mr Harriot wants ...

Much like tea, chocolate and diamonds, you should always ensure that your pets are ethically sourced. Sadly it seems puppy farming is still alive and breeding fast - despite switching to a cold wash cycle and only ever buying potatoes with the Soil Association stamp of approval, as a nation we are supporting an exceptionally unfair trade and we don't ...

 

Are you a man? A man that thinks? A thinking man perchance? Well hello. Keep reading. The Thinking Men's Project is launching (do you see what they did there? You will in a minute) itself in Brighton this July by holding a grand and glorious fancy dress bungee jump. (Launching. Bungee. Geddit?)

Simon Amstell is playing the Brighton Dome this October. My tickets are booked and ready, so I now have no problem with suggesting you get yourself a seat, because you won't be denying me one.

The south east is one of the most densely populated areas of Britain. It's heaving with hotties. Or at least, people that you could consider dating. One small problem though, this plethora of potential partners may be difficult to get a firm grip on. Because Brighton is bubbling over with variety, there's always going to be somebody new to see and, ...

At this weekend's Japanese festival (kindly brought to the people of Brighton by Moshi Moshi) Seiko Kato caught my woefully inexperienced and lazy eye. A graduate from the University of Brighton, and now a freelance illustrator, she has produced an startling range of collages, drawings, textiles and 3D montages. All made from or inspired by items she has built up ...

If you enjoy music that features the same three words repeated over and over and over, and at times resembles the monotonous buzz of an electric toothbrush. Then this place will put the schizzzle in your nizzle, and you may well meet your very own footballer, and who knows, become his wife?

'That's me in the spotlight, losing my religion...'

  When my dad found out I was moving to Brighton, he launched an insistent campaign to get me to reconsider. He suggested Worthing, or at a push, Shoreham. Naturally, I ignored him.  When the deed was done, and my boyfriend of the time and I were firmly ensconced in our first city pad (above ...

 

Wave you hands in the air, 'cos no-one's gonna stare... 107749_4982 As we all know, the British don't like to make eye contact with strangers or sit next to them on trains.

Afternoon delight: Sunday Roast in Brighton   On a typical Sunday, a typical Brightonian will be nursing a hangover head, lying in front of the three-hour-long Hollyoakes omnibus for the best part of the morning and using all remaining brain cells to work out where on earth to go for a traditional Sunday roast.  We have many, many wonderful pubs in ...
