ALL NEW CHIMPOMATIC!

It's that time of the decade again when we overhaul the mothership and drag Chimpomatic into the future. We're all about the content stream this time around, as much of our data is now coming from Twitter and Flickr. Scroll down for an endless torrent of hard to read rectangles, colour coded by content type. If it's all a bit much for you, narrow your browser and it will all drop into a single column.

The flailing reviews section has seen the most notable improvement, with Twitter reviews now getting the on-site treatment, meaning there's hundreds of new film reviews and many more recent music ones. You can also click on the different star ratings to filter the reviews, making it easy to find those zero star reviews that are well worth avoiding, or those unmissable five star ones.

Tagging also gets an upgrade, with tags now site-wide across content and photos.

Feel free to add comments....

Fire up the Chimp-O-Matic?!

not quite sure what to make of this until we've talked to our Chimp-o-lawyers (especially as we're lovers, not fighters), but there's a Chimp-O-Matic weapon in PS3 game Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time 

"The Chimp-o-Matic was a weapon that turned enemies into chimpanzees and, according to its demonstration video, was originally designed as a party gag by bored GrummelNet engineers. Robotic enemies were turned into toy monkeys with cymbals, while organic enemies turned into normal chimps."

East London Line Re-opens

Every hipster chimp's dream day has arrived. With the re-opening of the East london Line today, partying in Hoxton and New Cross on the same night is an easy reality.

The updated line will run 7am until 8pm from New Cross Gate to Dalston Junction - until the official re-opening on May 23rd when it will run full hours, 12 times an hour. The final route will run all the way down to Croydon, for that essential IKEA trip.

Surprisingly enough, this opening is well ahead of the original 'late 2010' schedule. Thanks Ken!

Thylacine

a bit of random wikiing lead me to these pics of Thylacines - the Tasmanian tiger, now extinct thanks to being hunted out of existence by 1930. Good work humans. Didn't realise there were any pictures...
