Apparently in another civilisation-ending moment in history (certainly I would imagine for Daily Mail readers) Barbie has got a tattoo. The slut.In fact, look closely at the picture and you’ll see that she’s also had some special tribal scarring to spell out the word ‘Indonesia’ on her bared torso.Now I think about it, she’s probably got the clap too – the dirty mare…

Great news – the smug, self-satisfied Now Show steps aside and in its place Radio 4’s “News Quiz” returns tonight; Friday May 1st at 6.30pm (repeated Saturday at 12.30pm) – its superbly skewed weekly take on the world returning for an almost unbelievable *68th* series…Sandi Toksvig chairs, and panellists include Andy Hamilton, Fred MacAulay and Jeremy Hardy.There should be plenty to poke fun at…If you don’t catch it on the radio, then don’t forget you can subscribe to it as a podcast on iTunes.

Just a nice catch of a couple of Piccadilly Line trains speeding through Chiswick Park tube station, as I was waiting for the District Line back into town after drinks last night. Kind of nice textures, colour and vibe courtesy of the iPhone’s idiosyncratic camera…

(*I know which one I’d rather be stuck in a lift with…) Although I’m not anything approaching a ‘Trekkie’ or whatever the term is, there’s no doubt I’m a bit of a geek. And to be honest I’m kind of looking forward to the new Star Trek film.Hanging off the edge of its release are many articles and bits of feature writing – like this quite good one in the Indy about Vulcans, and how they are a superior species to us. Although of course they’re not superior, since they don’t actually exist; something which surely has to be considered as a drawback in any species really…It also discusses the concept of creating fictional races in sci-fi, and how they can be very human-like, or utterly horrifying (although they fail to mention how Jar-Jar Bloody Binks strangely manages to fit into both categories…)It’s also worth the read, if only for Patrick Moore’s priceless quote: “There isn’t a planet Vulcan, of course, otherwise I would have observed it.”
