O America

You know I love you, but you are a little bit strange and freaky and disturbing sometimes…

Johnny Boy @ The Luminaire

Contains unrestrained fanboy gushing and swearing, yet, surprisingly, I wrote this Johnny Boy review completely sober…

Snappish Approved: Pull Shapes

The CD single for Pull Shapes includes a dance routine. It is, therefore, an essential purchase.

Clap your hands!

The Tower of Power!


It had a long and faithful service, but its time is up.

You would not believe the amount of dust that was inside it, either…

A Moment of Silence, If You Will

After six years, going to America for nine months, several motherboards, power supplies, and processors, the Tower of Power has finally been retired. I am no longer running Windows. I am no longer running Linux. It’s quite sad, really. I now no longer have a desktop machine, for the first time since 1997.

My journey to the dark side of Apple is complete. Bwahahahaha!


Aside from a slightly dodgy start and Torchwood being so inept that a group of Cybermen can simply hide some plastic sheeting, that wasn’t too bad, was it? I think Russell has been reading Planetary and Ministry of Space along with Halo Jones - the barbed comment about Torchwood tech not being for the general public spoke volumes (I haven’t seen Confidential yet, which apparently goes into the Torchwood setup into further detail, but I’ve love them to actually run with that concept instead of making them ‘the good guys’).

Given that the Nation estate probably wouldn’t stand for a Cybermen victory, I’m expecting the Daleks to thin out the metal men ranks fairly swiftly. And who wants to put money on Rose being in that Void Ship by the end?
