"America is a large continent made up two sub-continents, North America and South America. The USA is the largest country in America. I'm from the USA, so I'm an American. Has the weather been good recently?"

Fresh Upsideclown, and today James brings us an Interview With An Automatum. Strangely funny, but for the life of me I don't know why.

And there are two great pieces I've missed. At Upsideclown, Neil's Flightpath is thoughtful, quiet. Typical Neil, and really good.

Meanwhile, Upsideclone is funny and excellent. Friday's was Don't Book it - Thomas Cook it -- of holidays, asylum seekers, and holidays. Top stuff, more like this please. (It's by Tom Armitage and he has a page of writing you can check out.)

And one last plug: Don't forget you can write for Upsideclone (we'd love to have you), or if you just want to read you can recieve both 'clone and 'clown by email -- just check the bottom of both sites for more details.
