Search for Jesus on Twitter via Atom Feed

Some little wtf-project, making use of the twitter search API and reading & parsing an Atom Feed into Flash (or Flex) (Actionscript3).

The results are sometimes fun to read, here are some tweets that passed in just a couple of minutes:

"Jesus, what's wrong with you?"
"Jesus had weed carriers -- they were called disciples back then ROFL"
"Jesus dude, hope youre doing fine"
"Jesus Christ. That four hour nap at 6 pm was not a good thing"
"I bet Jesus is Tupac's nigga. Bet he got to Heaven and was all like, "Whaddup my nigga!?" And Jesus was like, "Whaddup my nigga!!"

Olympic Games London 12 Logo reveiled…

Jeij. *EURN* This is it :
london2012"We've had a huge reaction to the launch of the new logo - most of it negative"
-Interactive Olympics editor Claire Stocks

"When people see the new brand, we want them to be inspired to make a positive change in their life"
-Tony Blair

Whotevva. They payed over 190 000€ for this lil piece of art (?!) made in 1,5h with photoshop with an extra ugly free bonus font on top. It looks like a window I recently kicked a ball through :p And if you really look close, you can see Vicky Pollard in there as well. Seriously... wtf.
