Mr Goldie, I Should Have Taken Your Odds…

My contribution to the team might not have extended much beyond insisting on a selection of incorrect answers–I could offer only a small handful of correct ones, and one of those was about Star Trek (hangs head in shame)–but it would be remiss of me not to mention our unprecedented success at the Hemingford Arms ...

New Toy

You now, it’s terrible, really: Sal goes away for a few days and I can’t help myself but go shopping and spend lots of money. Ostensibly heading to Tottenham Court Road on Saturday afternoon to help someone else with a laptop purchase, I ended up returning with a lovely shiny new 60GB iPod photo, which ...

“Hot off the press before they’re cold”

Nice to see the BBC continuing their occasional series of moderately hypocritical Papal-ethics articles with another brilliantly-headlined piece.

Lazy Sub Editors

I must say that my plan of not paying any attention to Everton’s recent matches seems to be doing wonders for their form: since getting access to the evil one’s sports channels at home, I’ve watched 3 live games, all of which have ended in defeat for my team. I have completely ignored the last ...

Basic Grasp of HTML

Proxy Celebrity Spotting Haiku

“That fat funny man,” says Sal, “the one Angel likes” in Camden, with shirts

Random Papal-related news: - The BBC choose to illustrate an article discussing the ethics of photographing the Pope’s body with… a photo of the pope’s body (well, obviously from that angle it’s fine). - Apparently Queen have come under fire for going ahead with their reunion tour gig in Rome this week. Well, obviously they ...

Typical Monday Evening in Camden

Rob reports that his part of London has been experiencing heightened levels of crime recently. It must be catching: yesterday evening, on my way home from work I emerged from a particularly unpleasantly packed Northern Line to the sound of sirens wailing. Just your typical Monday evening in Camden, you might think, but as I ...

Glasto Denial of Service Attack

Looks like the annual “lets hype Glastonbury until Wayahead Box Office’s servers explode” ritual is well underway, what with the White Strips confirmed as Friday night headliners, along with non so subtle hints about Coldplay for the Saturday night. Despite what Mr Eavis might say, Wayahead (the chaps who will actually sell you the ticket ...
