My Chemical Toilet: Festival Moblog


Our friends at Shiny Shiny have launched a festival moblog, my chemical toilet. We did chuckle at the name, but now we're just jealous of their festival going goodness.

Glastonbury is this week, so keep an eye on their festival moblog for loads of images and video sent live, and if you're at Glasto too, you can also send in to the moblog, simply MMS or email: toilet@moblg.net

Shared moblogs return


After we renovated the site, many of you wondered where the shared moblogs had disappeared. After careful testing, shared moblogs are once again accessible via the top level navigation.

Binwatch UK

CH4 Dispatches: 'Bin Wars' Moblog



indent
The reduction in rubbish collections has caused public outrage in Britain. Over 150 councils are switching from weekly to fortnightly refuse collections. Will this improve recycling rates as the government has claimed or will it result in mounting piles of rubbish, putting our health at risk?

Binwatch wants to see your bins! Are they overflowing with rubbish? Attracting local vermin? Or perhaps the new system is resulting in a greener approach to your rubbish disposal.

Send us your bin stories, photos and videos - good or bad!

’Dispatches: Bin Wars’ is on Channel 4 on Mon 24th May at 8pm


Posting to this moblog is simple, simply send an MMS containing an image or video to 07725202020 with your message and the word bin at the start of the message, then more info about your bin such as where it is located in the UK, how smelly is it, etc. Alternatively you can email your Bin pictures or video to:
email
and they will appear on the Binwatch moblog.

Just Jack moblog competition

Get your face onto the new Just Jack single

Today we launched a moblog for the artist Just Jack, but rather than being a tour diary, it's a competition to choose a person to become one of the characters on the artwork for his new single, 'Writers Block'.

Entering is simple, moblog a picture of yourself, with your nickname, favourite item of clothing, and one item you could not live without in the text.

Jack will choose his favourite 5 posts for a short-list, and select one image that will become a character on the artwork of his summer single, 'Writers Block'.

Visit the moblog and good luck, you might find your mug all over festival posters and CD's come the summer!!

We are running this moblog for Mercury Records, and there is a note about privacy that as a moblogUK member you should read, please visit the forum post on this subject here.
