July ends, a month of sun to rain and nothing to opportunities. The second full month away from university and another full month to go. July saw less than June thanks to friends going away, most friends around here being full-time workers but everything works out in the end. The ground-hog day esque repetition of each day was broken up with the occasional day out to Manchester, Liverpool and other places plus my writing for my super unsecret novel ‘Twisted Pop’ is going at rocket speed! Rocket Punch! And there goes chapter 1 out the door. Continue reading
Macaroni and cheese is a simple dish usually starting from a tin can. The tin can is cheap and tastes good, why would anyone ever need to make it for themselves? It would be like trying to create baked beans from fresh. But I did, without the macaroni. Unmacaroni and cheese which is so unmacaroni it becomes macaroni. Confused? Me too. Continue reading
Four walls and one ceiling make a room and the room keeps the furniture in. This room painted completely in white only holds a few pieces of furniture; a table, a chair, a computer, a bed and a boy. The boy seemed content on the computer, the light fixating his eyes, the whole world delivered to his mind. Continue reading
8 bit visuals are incredibly cool these days, 8 bit tattoos, 8 bit fashion, 8 bit art and 8 bit used in new games. Looking back on old games they now seem pretty neat rather than old hat as people enjoy the blocky visuals and teenagers have NES belts and Space Invader T-Shirts despite them being a bit before their time. Galaga is one such 8 bit game which is held in high regard, not as much as Space Invaders but people know its name. Continue reading

Space Harrier II doesn’t have a plot, well at least a plot I could find on the virtual console release, it was probably hiding on the virtual instruction booklet. But I made my own up. Pete, a blonde hair man in a red flight suit one day stumbles across a metal thingy. He discovers this metal thingy is a special device called the ‘Space Harrier’ when he picks it up he can suddenly shoot beams and fly! Unfortunately for him the device was cursed and he ends up in some nightmare world made up of checkered tiles and dragons made of fire! Amongst other things. To escape Pete must blast his way to the end through, green checkered tiles to checkered tiles in hell, the main offense is having a seizure over the flashing colours. Will Pete make it?! Continue reading
Delete delete delete delete delete e.t.c These are the words one of the bad guys in Death Note liked to say alot and I’m feeling it this week though not deleting real people, he went a bit far there. With a friend quitting the insidious cesspit which is Facebook I suddenly got the sudden urge to do the same. Continue reading
On a cloudy afternoon in a sink I get to sit down with the mighty Bubble Lord as he talks about his new autobiography ’When the Bubble Bursts’ out on Nevermber the 6th.
I feel a little light and floaty. I was going to frequent here more with my amazing bubble tales but I decided to sit down and write the years best autobiography. Continue reading
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
A woodchuck could chuck no amount of wood since a woodchuck couldn’t chuck wood.
But if a woodchuck could chuck and would chuck some amount of wood, what amount of wood would a woodchuck chuck?
Even if a woodchuck could chuck wood, and even if a woodchuck would chuck wood, should a woodchuck chuck wood?
A woodchuck should chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood, as long as a woodchuck would chuck wood.
Oh shut up! Continue reading
It has been a long time coming but the toy’s are back… in town… that phrase for the franchise seems pretty old hat, it was even used in the adverts back when the original came out. But it just rolls off the tongue! Toy Story 3 continues the excellent franchise and delivers a film which won’t disappoint. Better. Continue reading
Ah Cooking Guide, you really know how to make plain sounding dishes fancy. Tonight we have a French dish called the Hachis Parmentier, cottage pie as it is otherwise known here. This is a pretty big task, probably as big as the Corn Beef Hash I’ve covered in the past. Without further ado, let us begin and be prepared to eat cottage pie with a French name. Continue reading
