: HELLO NUMBER FOUR

  Delighted by the warm response our comeback has
  had & if you want to help there's one thing we
  need: Facebook likes.

  The reality of modern publishing is you need a
  strong Facebook page to get stuff in front of
  people. We used to do this via newsletter.

  We're absolutely going to continue the
  newsletter but we need a strong Facebook page.
  Like the fuck out of it. Now.

: BYE ROGER MOORE
  Three way bye-bye from everyone at b3ta

  * BEST ROGER MOORE STORY YOU'LL EVER READ - It's
  been a rotten week but this story about a chap
  meeting Roger Moore as a child and then again as
  an adult really lifted our mood and hopefully
  it'll do the same for you. Thanks to Marc Haynes
  for sharing.
http://b3ta.com/blog/simply-a-great-story-about-roger-moore-thatll-make-you-feel-good/


  * ROGER MOORE FLASH NOSTALGIA - Back in B3ta 55
  we published Dan Chamber's Flash animation about
  Roger Moore so today we got back in touch and
  asked him to get it on YouTube. It's great -
  double nostalgia of old B3ta and the dearly
  departed Rog. And how's Dan? He's well, he's
  still in animation and done loads of kids TV and
  adverts in the er... last 15 or so years since
  we last caught up. Yay.

  * ROGER PHOTOSHOPS - Some Roger Moore tributes
  from our ob3tuaries challenge. Not the best
  possible taste but they were made with love.

: GIVE WEEBL YOUR FUCKING MONEY
  
  Jonti Picking, of badger badger badger fame
  wants your money. Patreon stuff init. He says
  "Making animations is not easy, quick or cheap
  so if you like what we do then your support
  REALLY helps and gives us the freedom to create
  the things you love, without compromising." Go
  on, bung the old sausage 50p.

: WHAT B3TA PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS WEEK
  Other than making suspicious jam
  
  * ANDREW MARR WEATHER - @area writes, "My
  significant other has decreed that 'The Andrew
  Marr Show' is required viewing since we started
  dating. It didn't take me long to realise what
  my favourite bit of it is, and as a result I've
  now started a Twitter account solely to document
  Andrew Marr introducing the weather forecast"
https://twitter.com/SoToTheWeather 

  We asked WHY they enjoyed this bit so much and
  area replied, 'They're just needlessly
  overwritten. He could just say "Here's Louise
  with the weather", but instead he says "It's
  been a rather desolate, bone-aching and frankly
  soul-destroying week, meteorologically, and I
  wish I could think of something good to say
  about it. But I can't. Over to Louise".'
  

  * THERESA MAY ELECTION SONG - "I made another
  musical video, this time about Theresa May's
  campaign strategy" writes  the b3ta artist
  formerly known as giant_squid. We thought we'd
  hate this but it's great.
https://youtu.be/3Kjp5JxlGjs 


  * ELECTION POSTERS - if you hadn't noticed
  there's an election on. "I been doing these
  anti-tory posters writes", long term b3tan
  Darren Cullen AKA Spelling Mistakes Cost Lives,
  "I've been making anti-Tory propaganda you can
  download and print in your home, office, or
  local closed & dilapidated library."
https://www.spellingmistakescostlives.com/toriesout


  * HISTORY OF MUSIC - James Errington writes,
  "I'm making a mix of music / audio for every
  year since the start of sound recording. So far
  I've got up to 1890."
https://centuriesofsound.wordpress.com/2017/05/01/1890/ 

-------------------------------------------------

  * WALKERS CRISPS FUCK-UP Amazing screw up from
  Walkers - they allowed unmoderated photos into
  their official Twitter account and tweeting out
  videos of murderers & sex offenders. And of
  course we've saved the video so you can watch
  coz they obviously deleted all this shit ASAP.
http://b3ta.com/blog/walkers-crisps-tweet-a-series-of-murderer-and-sex-offender-videos-in-fully-fledged-social-media-disaster/


  * BBC BROASDCAST BAD TASTE IAN BRADY RADIO QUIZ
  - Make sure you listen to this radio clip as a
  cheesy local radio host decided to commit career
  suicide by doing a jolly music quiz about Ian
  Brady. Unbelievable.
http://b3ta.com/blog/ian-brady-local-radio-quiz/


  BTW: If anyone has a follow up on this story
  we'd like to know. BBC apologised & Nathan
  Turvey deleted account. But we're still puzzled
  by it. It's been forgotten in the horror of the
  week but still want to know *why* he did this.
  Not outraged. Fascinated. Weird thing to do in
  context of BBC local radio. 


-------------------------------------------------

: REMEMBERING MUNKT0N
  
  Old school b3tan Munkt0n of B3ta AND 4rthur fame
  sadly passed on this week but it prompted B3tans
  of 2003 vintage to stage a board invasion in
  tribute to the lovely old chap. It's a fitting
  tribute and seeing all the old names puts a lump
  in our throat.
