RIP Michael Parks…

I hate to report that my cinematic muse #michaelparks has passed away. Michael was, and will likely forever remain, the best actor I've ever known. I wrote both #RedState and @tuskthemovie FOR Parks, I loved his acting so much. He was, hands-down, the most incredible thespian I ever had the pleasure to watch perform. And […]

New developments on Plataea

I have been doing small amounts of work on my old Spawn base on the Minecraft Server that I administer. I will try and do some better screenshots at some point soon, but basically here is the much overhauled structure, no longer just an ugly Cobblestone cube, it now has rooms and balconies and battlements […]

Of Interest to (Programming) Geeks Everywhere…

Reasons to be less than cheerful…

When I was on my way to work this morning I was expecting that I might post something about how sad I am to hear that Robin Williams has lost his long battle with the Black Dog of Depression and ended his own life, because it is very, very sad, and he is / was […]

A Short Story…

A little while ago (well back in July last year), I went to see Amanda Palmer play at the Roundhouse in Camden with her Grand Theft Orchestra. It was the performance where she famously punched back at the Daily Mail, with her song “Dear Daily Mail”, performed in her own quixotic style, and there was […]
