Welcome to News Felch – here’s your straw…

Hi folks. Cat Vincent here.

I’ve been blogging for a while, mostly on occult and Fortean matters. Recently, I was sucked into the maelstrom that is Twittering, and found that my daily output of small bursts of newsiness were taking up too much room on my main blog – so I’ve opened up this branch off the main site.

Below is the intro to News Felching I originally wrote:

What the Hell is a News Felch?

Well, its a way for me to throw small but interesting news items up on a daily basis. It works using Twitter and LoudTwitter.com – with a little help from Tinyurl.

It was inspired by the (now possibly moribund) Newskrusher threads at Whitechapel, and my old pal Dave Devereux‘s embracing of the whole Web 2.0 thingy. The term News Felch comes from Chris Morris’s classic news parody The Day Today.

And… DO NOT click this link unless you really want to know what felching means.

Each News Felch will appear around 11pm UK time. I hope you enjoy them.
