The Hashmark Week 8/3/07

A word from the editor concerning the current state of affairs: This week has seen a flurry of activity – on Monday and Tuesday alone we had six new posts, including our first short film, ‘Pancake Day’:

“Genius.” – Pascoe (Read all the comments here)

Those of you who were readers of the old Hashmark will surely have appreciated the return of The Science Corner:

“Nice work.” – Jimmy

Monday also saw JR’s triumphant return to form – he sent in the long-awaited second installment of ‘I Understand How, But I Don’t Understand Why’, as well as an album review:

“An internet ramble for your musing, with jr2015.”

Three new columns began this week – ‘Sunshine Experiences’ with Jimmy Cheetham, ‘Tea With Jonathan’ by Jon Hackett and ‘The Roaming Football Column’. Luke explains the title:

“it roams, it’s concerned with football, and it’s a column, so it seemed an appropriate title”

Incidentally, we want new contributors for this feature, so if you’re football-minded, why not submit something? Opinion, analysis, anything you want.
