If these seems like an eclectic, or more accurately random, collection of links, that’s because the only connection between them is me. All I can say is that a lot of my friends have websites (and bands and blogs and films and important things to say) and those websites are great, and that’s why they’re here.

And finally: my teeshirt shop.
Please note that if you order a Fausterella teeshirt, you can edit the text to be anything you like, so if you’ve ever had a good teeshirt idea but can’t be bothered to open a shop, here’s your chance to get a one-off.
I should also mention that the Fausterella shirts aren’t designed to be advertising for my blog or anything (it’s not as though I make any money from the blog!), I just like the slogan.
