Leaning on a (Virtual) Lamppost

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

For anyone waiting for Vue 7. To be performed in the style of George Formby or for those of us who take our ukulele seriously The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain. I’m leaning on a lamp, maybe you think, I look a tramp, Or you may think I’m hanging ’round to steal a modo-car. But […]

I won a little competition over at the Fraternity of Shadows web site. Doubly cool as it saves me from writing another review.

Odeon Liverpool 1

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Last night’s trip to see The Quantum of Solace was also our first expedition to Liverpool 1’s new Odeon. In most respects its a big improvement over the old Odeous on London road. It helps that the seats are actually set so you’re looking at the screen and I was impressed with how easily they […]

Sharpe's Peril

Sunday, November 2nd, 2008

Some Site Rates this Blog

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

Apparently this blog rates 7 out of 10 on some rating site I’ve never heard of as an entertainment blog. I could have had a higher rating if I posted more often about entertainment. I’m so pleased. Really I am. My life is now complete.

Comment Spamming for the Novice

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

Here is a public service announcement tip for comment spammers spending their time posting to people blogs with meaningless comments. Posting to blogger (and any other system that adds a no follow to links) is really just a waste of your time. You won’t get any page rank from the blog you spam. Even on […]
