Newton Faulkner surfingIt will come as no surprise to many of you that Newton Faulkner - the man who resembles the offspring of a ginger pirate and a mop, and finger-twiddling one-man band - is not brilliant at making websites.

Mariah Carey couldn't parse html code if she was forced to at gunpoint (nor could I, actually, it sounds painful), and she hangs out with web nerds. Newton Faulkner probably hangs out with buccaneers and footpads.

And yet, given the chance to talk to Newton - sorry, The Newt - about anything at all for 10 minutes or less, what's the one topic we kept going back to? Blogging. Not how to wash dreadlocks or if he ever gets into trouble with guitar manufacturers for flicking and bashing their products the way he does...but BLOGGING?
