Bond New and Old

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

I picked up the DVD of Casino Royale at the weekend and watched it for the first time since seeing it at the cinema. Definitly still the best bond for a long time, hope they keep their nerve with the next one. Watching it again I was able to pay more attention to the sound […]

Are they trying to tell me something? Or is Life Complicated?

Saturday, September 15th, 2007

There was a letter through my front door this morning addressed to Mr Pizza Lover. Junk mail from Domino’s Pizza (a national chain of pizza shops) announcing their new outlet near here. The leaflet says Save Over £176.37 (the 37p is a nice touch although I’d say rounding it to £176 isn’t going to make […]

Thirteen Things Mark Caldwell is listening to/watching/reading in the last week. You’ve Got To Laugh – Nik Kershaw. Arrived this week from Short House Records and in my CD player a lot since then. Includes a warning that it may include traces of irony. Traces? Some might say that alone is ironic. The tunes could […]

Marion Raven – Set Me Free

Friday, June 29th, 2007

My copy of Marion Raven’s album Set Me Free came from Amazon last week but in all the excitement of the week end I didn’t get round to blogging about it. A good mix of different style and even the tracks I didn’t like at first are growing on me. Her sound isn’t ground breaking […]

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Sunday, June 3rd, 2007

Just back from watching Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, the second part of the two part follow up to Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Enjoyed it. Plot was twisty and did some interesting things with the characters. Great action sequences. Interesting characters. I would have liked more Chow […]

Sunday on Monday Evening

Monday, May 28th, 2007

Its taken me most of today to get to this which given today was a rather gloomy bank holiday it shouldn’t have. I split yesterday between wxPython in Action, Boston Legal and Mambo. Mambo in some ways was the easiest of the three as I got it up and running with only two references to […]

Thirteen things that set my brain off on a tangent yesterday Thieves steal 250,000 Flake bars: The police are looking for a gang of attractive, long haired women moving in slow motion.
