  • Oh Nintendo, What Have You Done.

    Nintendo Revolution. Great name for a console. Sets out the brand values nicely, tells you what’s going on. And now they’ve changed it to… Wii. That’s right, Wii. ARE YOU PEOPLE COMPLETELY INSANE? For the love of God, WHY?

  • Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr Bill Martell

    Bill Martell has a blog. Eighteen of the films he’s written have been produced. Not just sold, mind, actually committed to celluloid. He knows whereof he speaks. Go visit.

  • “It’s horrifying. It’s like a freaking nightmare.”

    For those not in the know, Gilmore Girls is a show about two women, a mother and her daughter with only sixteen years separating them. It’s been running for six years now, and has performed variably in the ratings. But it’s done well enough to be renewed year-on-year, and a six year run is nothing […]

  • Sadly, I had no gold or prostitutes with me.

    I’ve just finished a short contract working out in Slough. I was amused to read the following posted on the toilet door:“Please leave these toilets as you would wish to find them.” As the title of this post attests, I was unable to help.

  • Des nouveaux chevaliers au grand coeur

    It seems that the theme tune to Starsky and Hutch was quite different on the other side of the channel. Wacka wacka wacka.

  • Write On – Part the Second

    And it just so happens that my good friend and housemate Nick has written a novel. And posted the first chapter on YouWriteOn. So why not give the man some encouragement and check it out?

  • Write On – Part the First

The idea is that up-and-coming prose writers can put up the first three chapters of their novels, where they’ll be read, reviewed, and rated by members of the public. So far so blah. […]

  • Macs now run Windows XP. Natively.

    Great news. The only thing that was stopping me from switching 100% was the fact that pretty much anything you want to play (with the notable exception of World of Warcraft) was only available on a PC. Hell, I was thinking I’d have to buy one just to play games on. Life just got a […]

  • Vaginas are lethal! They have teeth and they bite people!

    Mr Daydream, by Roger Hargreaves=“Ah, my rod reverer!” brags gay dream.

  • Pretty Pictures

    It’s just possible that someone other than me may be interested in this. It’s a breakdown of UK primetime TV by genre. Data is from the Independent on Sunday TV guide, sampled as of the week 2-8 April 2006. I’ve defined primetime as 7-10pm Sunday to Saturday and have assigned my own genres as there […]
