Sparki Dee Please let me be in your crew, massive, posse, gang, whatever you wanna call it. You let Fluffy Bunny in. *Looks at WLW with puppy dog eyes*.

OK, so I asked for that. Your next letter will have to do better, though.

Dark Daydream Woo! I'm a newbie! It has occurred to me that there are a number of purple chickens dancing around a sombrero in my back garden.

Yes, read my comment above.

Good gangsters made in Italy

Richard- I largely agree with your point when confined to Hollywood gangster films, but Italy made some excellent gangster and police films in the 1970s. They were often directed by and starring the same people who made horror films and many were superb, eg Go gorilla Go! and the violent professionals. Richard, Southend

The best gangster film? Try king of New York starring Christopher Walken. Matt, St. Albans

Daggsy's Drops

daddypoos must be stupid or something.

Everyone knows that in the daytime, moths fly up into the sky and keep bumping into the sun. That's what clouds are. They're grey-ish and they keep moving around the sky... you know it makes sense.

Daggsy

I'm a little alarmed, in that case, at what raindrops are, by implication.

Penguin

We defrosted our fridge the other day. Can anyone rehome a penguin, please? He says it's too hot now the ice shelf has melted. He's the only one who thinks our summer is hot. Apart from that, he's a nice enough chap, if you don't mind the whiff of fish (oh, that could be the cat!).

Can you help, WLW, I bet your freezer's suitable.

The Barking Tree

I could make some sordid joke about only being interested if he's a fairy... but I've used that before.

It's Over

It's over, the most boring Big Brother ever. I was cinvinced I was being abduxted by aliens, but all it was was that I'd seen a bit of Big Brother. I swear, I don't remember anything.

I mean, they could have put on the test card and got higher ratings.

Princess psycho

True... the test card would have at least been colourful.

Coupled Up

How very dare you, Chief Leggy Food! Of course we're a couple! I think AF was making a valid point about awkward encounters when dirty pretty things keep throwing themselves at his feet (although it's usually a bit higher than that).

Still, he's a hot young American and I'm just a grumpy old northern g*t.

mondo ray

I admit it... I think I'm smitten with you two.

Even if Tinchy Stryder isn't a chav, the tools from N-Dubz who are also on Number One definitely are, especially the prize idiot in the stupid hat. It's music for crowds in Ess*x shopping centres, keeping them happy while they purchase their weekly supply of lard and that week's copy of OK. Disco Stu

Maximo Park only debut at No. 6, despite being No. 1 in the midweek chart? That's very disappointing. I think it's great, especially Calm. nimrod

lord sebastian flyte Dear WLW, I'm back and I'm in love, my dear!

Some tasty Italian dish?

The Banana Flavoured Lemon (Plus Passion Fruit) Guess what, WLW? I've got a friend other than my pet snail! His name is The Lemon Flavoured Banana. I think I'm in love!

He sounds like a real smoothie.

Everyone else's parents seem to have better taste in music than mine. joy division? Fleetwood Mac? All I inherited off mine was an inbuilt and shameful love of Bananarama and The Bangles that I can't shake myself out of.

As for great album covers, two white police officers chasing two black teens down Bedford Stuyvesant on the sleeve of The Roots' Things Fall Apart: no pic has suited a title better. Dboogie

Never thought of that

The idea that rain is moth wee has a certain appeal.

Bet that's cheered up the people of Hull.

daddypoos, Wigan

Surely moth tears is a more romantic way of thinking about it during this loved-up edition of the Zine.

Following the recent topic of who lives in the remotest region, where's the best place to grow up? I'm from Huddersfield. Manchester, Sheffield, leeds and bradford were less than an hour away, and the town itself had some decent venues. In my late teens and early 20s it was gig heaven. Seb Barker

Justin Furstinfield, the singer from Blue October, looks just like Divine. And the sarah palin double in their video looks so good. Shaun Letts

If Ziners were phobias

- Lost In Translation: Fear of yucky spiders.
- Vigilante Maelstrom: Fear of fudge. (It is really silly and irrational!)
- Aphra The Post-modern Spy, Hector's House: Fear of lumberjacks. (Trees are important!)
- Haryuu No Hanekata: Fear of buttons.
- farmer jack: Fear of gingerbread houses.

The Soul Cake Duck

Aren't phobias irrational, persistent and unrealistic? In which case it sums up Ziners perfectly.
