Just ran across this as I was reading about another actor with little tongue
control or sense.

"You'd think Gwyneth Paltrow would realise that, seems as she's actually
native to the US.",,50001-1242833,00.html

Maybe this is a common British usage, but over here in chilly Wisconsin,
I've always heard "seeing as" and never "seems as." Can anyone shed some
light on this? The latter is not the easiest phrase to search Google for.
