We're doing a feature called "What you should be listening to and why" for the Music Issue of Snippets. Basically, we need you to suggests bands to listen to with your reasons why.
Here's are some examples to get your creative juices flowing:
"Bat For Lashes because she's the new Bjork, The Silversun Pickups because they are grunge rock with pop sensibilities, Mark Ronson because it's the summer soundtrack, The Smashing Pumpkins because it's the return of the greats of rock and UNKLE because it's what happens when a DJ goes to the dessert for three months and comes back with a rock album." - Graham Neale
"LCD Soundsystem; The Cribs; the Twilight Sad; Willy Mason; Yo Majesty; The Shins; Patrick Wolf; Modest Mouse; Low; Klaxons; Biffy Clyro have all had singles and/or albums out that have blown me away this year." - Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol

Tampons are great, aren't they? Looking back through my crafts, I've always had a special place *cough cough* for them. Keep your 'pons tidy and organized with a Tampon Dispenser, or cheer up those crampy days with your very own Pon Friend
They're just so handy and they have so many uses. Don't believe me? Check out Tampon Crafts, a site dedicated to crafts that can be made with tampons. My particular favourites include the Halloween Tampon Ghost and Father's Day Tampon Toupee.
Just a quick note to say that Snippets Issue 4 is now online and it's the Art School Issue.

We are pleased to announce that the winners of our Get A Hobby! competition are:
Jen - Creating real imaginary friends for small children, and organizing group events for them.
Leigh Cain - I would love to make outdoor sculptures from indoor items - a rose trellis from a chandelier, and things like that. I want a garden that looks like a fairy tale castle rotted away, and plants grew over what was left.
andrea a. dela cruz - my time-consuming hobby (and disturbing to some) is smelling, REALLY smelling books. sticking my nose inside yellowed pages or crisp freshly printed magazines gives me a thrill no words could describe. now if only i had the luxury of time and the priviledge of living in solace in a bookstore--ah, life would be perfect.
You can read all the entries over on the competition page now.
