Jolly good, sir! Oh, by the way, sir, for the next issue of AcidMail, I'm forcing Randy to write it, so let's see how well that goes... Annnd all done, well, everything seems to be fine, you can now read the rest of the issue knowing that you are in tip-top condition. ------------------------------------------------- >JS PAINT SUBMISSIONS A few weeks ago, we asked you, the reader, to make us some very nice art made with the online art program, JS Paint. Here are some of the very nice things that you have made for us, oh boy! : THING BY EL : https://encounters-ltd.neocities.org/misc/FRIEND.png EL of encounters-ltd.neocities.org was the first to submit artwork for this little event. He managed to create a fun little green blob and seemly their bird friend - very nice. I especially like the friendly vibe the whole image has, good job, EL! : TERRIBLE THINGS BY OWLY : https://neozones.neocities.org/acidjaw/mail/issue13/saluton.png Owly of owlman.neocities.org made not one but two horrible creations, the first being Saluton, that shows the little gobshite in the middle of the street, probably waiting for their dealer to deliver their meth. Later on, Owly would make another drawing, this time a reminder to W A S H Y O U R H A N D S : https://neozones.neocities.org/acidjaw/mail/issue13/wash_your_hands.png This would soon follow to Randy of tehleroy.neocities.org suggesting to Owly that they should "Now draw coronachan hanging you while saying 'you forgot to wash your foreskin'", how romantic! : TERRIBLE THING BY RANDY : https://neozones.neocities.org/acidjaw/mail/issue13/wash_your_hands_2.png As seen above, Randy suggested for Owly to draw the embodiment of the COVID-19 virus essentially bollocking Owl for not... wasting their foreskin... Did we have to go *there*? Anyway, click on the image link, I guess, oh, and remember to wash... *sigh*... to wash under... under your foreskin... (I'm sorry.) : PIZZA SAVED THE DAY : https://neozones.neocities.org/acidjaw/mail/issue13/untitled_4.png Pizza Squeeze of squeeze.pizza made a much more wholesome finish to this art show. Finally we have Pizza, who drew a (very much real-to-life) self-portrait of himself. With that out of the way, thank you to everyone who took the time in drawing some artwork for this event, you now now be set free. ------------------------------------------------- >A LOOK AT THE BEATLES - WITH THE BEATLES (1963) Exactly eight months after the band's debut of Please Please Me, The Beatles were seemly back for round two, this time with a new album; With The Beatles. Unlike last time, the Feb Four's new record is seemly more interesting than their first dip into music, however, one of the things that I will straight up say that I don't like about the album is that, well, it could honestly have just been called "Please Please Me Part Two" as (hot take) it doesn't really show that the band has grown all that much since their first outing. Well, that's kind of a lie, this time the band have a more fast, quick record, let me explain; 'It Won't Be Long' is one of my favourite early tracks by the band, as, unlike a lot of other songs by the band in the early days (AKA Please Please Me), the start of the song is as fast as the chorus. In my opinion, the verses of a lot of their songs (especially in the early days) are slow and boring, while the middle parts are fast and fun. Thematically, well, it's the same as the last record really, that being love and how nice it would be if you were my girlfriend. To be honest, if this review goes on any longer, then it will just be the same as the last because of how similar the first two albums by the band are, so here are the stand out track that I like; : IT WON'T BE LONG Fast song; love the vocals and screaming the band sings, for the first track, it's great, plus the instruments all sound really good. : ALL MY LOVING Catchy as Hell guitar riff. : LITTLE CHILD An okay song, but still fun, probably my least favourite favourite song. Worth a play, you might like it, but you won't be missing much if you gave this one a skip. : TILL THERE WAS YOU Rather sweet and simple song by McCartney, very unlike 'It Won't Be Long'. : PLEASE MISTER POSTMAN Cover version of The Marvelettes. Yep, it's a cover song, but a good one and is enjoyable. : HOLD ME TIGHT Good vocals and over-all a catchy song that got me singing it to myself while I was working. The lyric are rather simple and easy to remember, so that deftly helps it, plus the clapping benefits it out. : I WANNA BE YOUR MAN I would not be all that shocked if this song was recycled from the pre-Beatles days. Still, fun and enjoyable. : NOT A SECOND TIME More love songs, but a good one at that. : MONEY With this and 'Please Mister Postman', I feel like this song is covered all of the time. The Beatles version is probably one of my favourite versions of the song published, but never forget the terribly-amazing Flying Lizards version from 1979. I'm not sure if I would have ended the album with this song, maybe 'Till There Was You' might have been a nice ending, but still an alright ending to a better album then before. Next time we have 'A Hard Day's Night', so watch-out, it can only get better! ------------------------------------------------- >ASCII OF THE NOW The ASCII of The Now is a weekly thing we do where we dig threw the old archives of forgotten websites, finding ASCII art that time forgot. /\_/\____, ,___/\_/\ \ ~ / \ ~ \ ) XXX XXX / /\_/\___, \o-o/-o-o/ ~ / ) / \ XXX _| / \ \_/ ,-/ _ \_/ \ / ( /____,__| ) ( |_ ( ) \) _| _/ _) \ \__/ (_ b'ger (,-(,(,(,/ \,),),) ASCII of The Now is Cerberus, one of the many Greek mythologies.

They say looking at TV will turn your eyes square, that never happened to anyone we know, so we guess that it would be fine to also browse the web for 23-hours-a-day, Hell, if it won't for us browsing the web so much, how would we have found all of these links? Got you there, mom and dad! : BABY SHARK SAYS WASH YOUR HANDS : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L89nN03pBzI Cute little animation by the people who made Baby Shark, yay... Yeah, so what if this was made for five-year-olds? I have been stuck inside for over two weeks with no human contact.. Fuck you, asshole... You know what, just get outta my face. : HIGHWAY TO THE GOPHER ZONE : https://gopher.zone/ 'Highway to the Gopher Zone' is a "minimal static-site-generated blog of write-ups and resources for new users who are new to gopher", that basally means that it has a collection of small, detestable articles about the world of Gopher, a protocol from the 1990s that is only now used by a small amount of people. : BBC ENTERTAINS THE NATION IN TIME OF NEED : https://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2020/bbc-entertains-the-nation-in-time-of-need : https://neozones.neocities.org/acidjaw/tech/links-we-like/ For all Britains stuck at home due to COVID-19, The BEEB made a report on what programmes they are going to show over the coming months. Some things of note are that they are going to air a show that has British cosmonaut Tim Peake, who "will be chatting about how to keep your mind active in period of self-isolation", they are also going to show us a program that will be about "stargazing with Dara Ó Briain in his back garden and Chris Packham will be finding out what is happening to our wildlife and how animals will continued to be looked after", plus more HIGNFY will be shown. If you can't watch the BBC on TV, then we made a collection of links that have been used on AcidJaw plus have been posted on our Discord server (second link). : RED DWARF FANSITE : http://www.angelfire.com/wa2/smeghead/ As based off Red Dwarf, this website that was seemly last updated around 2000, is rather small and unfinished (or "undefined" as every-other website hosted on Angel Fire would say) and has a few now-dead links to other sites. Might be worth a look if you like old fansites and that sort of thing. : NATURAL BORN KITTENS : http://www.naturalbornkittens.com/ : http://web.archive.org/web/20090403075527/http://www.naturalbornkittens.com/ WebComic as made by a young Larry Bundy Jr that is *somehow* still online (we linked an archived version just in case). The site is VERY inspired by Anime and the Eastern-world. If you click on the "tell a friend" text at the very bottom, a little pop-up shows up, encouraging the viewer to mail the URL to a friend, writing that Natural Born Kittens is "A British manga about four half cat half human demonesses living in Northwood Middlesex..." ------------------------------------------------- >UNTIL NEXT TIME AcidMail would not be possible if it won't for the cocky people over at NeoZones, one of the worst s0-called "webhome".
