I was somewhere between the Bevington Road and North Parade junctions walking north up Banbury Road when I first thought of the word "upsideclown", and by the time I crossed to Woodstock Road (probably via either Lathbury or Staverton) I was still laughing at the visual pun. Who knows why. Too much revision maybe. Anyway so I bought the domain and recruited my friends over the next week or so, as a way of keeping contact with one-another primarily. Something to do. That was just over 200 articles ago, and we launched exactly two years ago today. Two years of polemic, personal writing, explanation, nonsense and culture.

So what are we doing to celebrate? This: Whelk.
