Just Can't Help Believing

The Johnny Boy album and the remastered Horses arrive on the same day. YEAH! YEAH!

But I have something for you too! An interview with representatives from the BPI, IFPI, HMV and Napster! THRILL! As they mostly avoid answering the question! SHRIEK! As they point out that they can prosecute you for transferring a CD to your MP3 Player! And CACKLE! As most of them admit breaking the law!

currently playing: James Taylor – Carolina in My Mind

A Mercy Killing

But they could have at least got Sorkin to write the finale…

currently playing: Kenickie – Acetone

Holy Exposition, Batman!

Well, I’ll bet it doesn’t have one of their presenters licking Cliff Richard inbetween acts, does it?

EDIT: Also, after watching Late Review last night (an almost all-NME edition!), I get the feeling that the Arctic Monkeys are going to be this year’s Kaiser Chiefs for me. Admittedly, this group doesn’t want me to rip out my eardrums, but I don’t see “OH MY GOD BEST THING IN THE WORLD EVER EVER EVER explodes” either…

ITN: Paedophila with Added Xenophobia!

ITN has morphed into the Brasseye Special. But I was particularly impressed when they pointed out that there’s 5,000 foreign teachers in the UK, and we only have the word of their countries that they’re not child molesters. Goodness knows what they’ll do when they work out that the age of consent in Canada is 14…

What you gonna do-ooo?

Dear customer
Today Megastore.se has shipped the following products:



SysAdmin 1, Cisco 837 0

I win this round, hated piece of hardware.

And guess what I found waiting for me when I got home?


currently playing: Johnny Boy – Fifteen Minutes


Seriously, if anybody knows the correct configuration for a Cisco 837 through a Demon ADSL connection, I’d be much obliged. It’s either that, or I take a chainsaw to the routers tomorrow.

But! In happier news! Nice of David Cameron to come over to our side too. It’s insane that the Government refuses to even talk about how much this is going to cost us.

A rhino transport!

God bless people who, on first getting a new Apple, decide to perform an autopsy, rather than, well, actually use it…

Animal Crossing: January 15th

It’s been a weird few days since I last wrote. Drake invited himself over to my house last Friday. I think his eyes were a little blinded by the shiny robofloor I had installed earlier in the week.

Drake was more interested in suggesting that Pattie and Maelle should make out rather than any constructive advice about my house. I did find out that Alli is leaving because she broke up with Curly, though. I can see why that couple failed; she’s an alligator, and he’s a pig. It was always going to end in tears, or bacon.

I’m not entirely sure whether Margie was coming on to me when she said that one of her fantasies was to have me jump from a diving board into a giant baked alaska. Sometimes the inhabitants of this town frighten me.

I had my second visitor yesterday! Bik, from KKKanada. She came over to Nustram, met a few of the inhabitants, took some oranges, and then invited me back to her town! She has some ducks that she’s trying to hound out of town. I met one of them, Dermet, and I can see why. He’s a bit of a know-it-all. I had a look around, nought a few things from her shop, looked at one of my constellations which made the jump across towns, then sauntered back off to Nustram for bed, leaving thank-you letters in my wake.

I have a new housemate! She calls herself Bonnie, and she’s already paid 3,000 bells towards the mortgage. She’s got funny hair, but then I’ve been walking around with a moustache and monocle all day…
