Meat Loaf and Raven

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

Not the latest offering on Great British Kitchen but tonights entertainment at the MEN arena. A solid 30 minuteish set from support Marion Raven with a guitar accompaniment. Having heard a couple of tracks on her web site I’m tempted to pick up her album when it’s released on June 11th. Then the main course […]

Will Auteur Brands destroy the Big Broadcasters?

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

This line of thinking was kicked off by John Rogers‘ blog post 4GM: Nobody gets Rich, Everybody Gets Paid and some of the comments on it. The Auteur Brand has a long tradition in our society. Far older than those names. The cult of personality around creative people goes back to the emergence of the […]

Plutoed gets Plutoed

Tuesday, January 9th, 2007

At lunchtime I thought tonight I was going to blog about The American Dialect Society’s choice of Word of the Year. It got Plutoed. This afternoon I thought it might be that the BBC’s new children’s spy show M.I.High is supposed to be about teenage members of MI9. Not sure why anyone would reactivate the […]

Weird Al's at it Again… Just Not Here

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

So no official release for Weird Al‘s Straight Outta Lynwood in the UK. I feel an Amazon order coming on. If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about go to the web site and download new songs like “White & Nerdy”, “You’re Pitiful!” or “Don’t Download This Song”.

Teppanyaki Superman

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

I’ve tried Sushi Restaurants and Noodle restaurants in the past. I’d never had Teppanyaki before. Went to the Teppanyaki Sapporo on Duke Street (Liverpool) after Superman last night. A bit pricey but the show put on by the chefs as they cooked our food in front of us was really good. If you want to […]

This Message Will Self Destruct in 5 Seconds…

Sunday, May 14th, 2006

Sorry couldn’t resist the title. I bet if I did a search I’d find hundreds like it already. What can I say it is a classic line. Well hats off to Mr Abrams. The best of the franchise so far. I liked the first one but it lacked the team element for most of the […]

Todays a Lemon and I'd like my Money Back

Friday, April 28th, 2006

So today just doesn’t seem to like me… I go to B&Q to get some stuff I need. I ask an assistant to help me make sure I’m getting the right stuff. I get it home, eat yada yada yada. First the "Universal Connector" won’t connect to what it’s supposed to. So after a significant […]

Civ IV Not So Bad

Thursday, March 16th, 2006

I’ve played a few more games through of Civ IV and I’ve decided I like it after all. Playing it on a harder level that actually challenges me makes it a lot more interesting. Thinking back when I first played Civ it was a hard slog even on its easiest level to start with. The […]

Civ IV First Impressions

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

I gave in and bought Civ IV on Saturday. Normally I don’t pick up a game till its dropped in price but I’ve been a big Civ fan for a long time. On the plus side its very pretty. On the minus side it didn’t seem very challenging (but I was playing on the easiest […]
