Well, then, looks like you came to the right place.

Ellie Greenwich, 60s songwriter supreme, is dead — at 68

She died of a heart attack yesterday.

Working with collaborators such as her ex-husband Jeff Barry and producer Phil Spector, she created classics such as "Be My Baby," "Da Doo Ron Ron,"

"Chapel of Love," "Leader of the Pack"

and "River Deep, Mountain High" —

to name only a few of her monster hits.

She was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1991.

Kick back, turn up the volume, and before you know it it's "Shindig" in your cubicle.

How do you spell "Time Machine?"

ID Guard Stamp creates 'black noise'


I just made up that term as a quick and dirty description of what this device does.

From the website:


ID Guard Stamp

Make personal information impossible to read.

Compact and portable, the ID Guard Stamp covers pertinent data with an impenetrable pattern of characters, discouraging thieves from "borrowing" your identity.

Star Trek Aftershave — 'Boldly go where no scent has gone before'


Long story short: Three scents are available: Tiberius and Red Shirt Aftershaves for men, and Pon Farr Perfume for women.

Here's the story from yesterday's Telegraph.


Star Trek aftershaves for science fiction fans who want to smell good

The three scents include one, Tiberius, that takes its branding from the middle name of James T Kirk, the captain of the USS Enterprise played by William Shatner.


It combines citron, black pepper and cedar top notes with vanilla, white musk, and sandalwood base notes to create a "casual yet commanding" aroma, according to the creators Genki Wear.

"Tiberius Cologne for men is difficult to define and impossible to refuse. In any universe," the product website states.

Also available is the Red Shirt Cologne, which is inspired by the strong-but-stupid extras who tend to come a cropper on Star Trek missions.


It is being sold under the slogan: "Smell like the future, because tomorrow may never come."

Women trekkies are also catered for with the Pon Farr scent,


which apparently takes its name from the Vulcan mating cycle.

Layering on the puns, one gift website where the colognes are available states: "Set to stun, these fully licensed fragrances boldly go where no scents have gone before. But they’re not just for Trekkies, they’ve been formulated to smell gorgeous on normal, non anorak wearers too."


Apiece, £29.99.
