Rescued this little fella a few days ago

Saw him squatting on the floor in the corridor and couldn’t quite make out what he was at first, perhaps a peanut or something else that had fallen? Leant down and immediately recognised his distinctly frog-like demeanour. After a few attempts to get him to climb onto a piece of paper (at which point he …

Announcement time!

I have an announcement to make, and it’s pretty amazing. …No, it’s not about the direction I swing. Before I make this groundbreaking announcement, I should probably tell you a little something about myself. There’s a tendency that I have to plunge headlong into activities which I have no prior experience in with an inconquerable …

New subscription widget!

Just added a little orange “subscribe” button to the right-hand side of the blog. Now you can be notified by e-mail when you can be bugged by my inane drivel. 😛 I’m a little surprised to discover that I apparently have 285 followers. I’ve never really encountered that great a number before when it comes …

Just posting to say screw SOPA

(Fun fact: Google Image Search for “sopa” and prepare to get hungry.) TotalBiscuit goes some way to explaining just how dumb this whole mess of a bill is – way better than I possibly could. I want you guys to know that even though I’m very doubtful that this bill will actually pass, I am …

Finally have a new mouse

It’s a lovely little wireless Logitech Anywhere MX and quite frankly craps on my old one from a substantial height. Advantages to using this one over the old one: It’s not plugged full of my dead skin (yet). No wire to trail and snag on absolutely everything. The mousewheel doesn’t scroll up or down of …

I used to go past this place every day

And now it’s a heap of crumbled wreckage. Doesn’t life go on.

Menu bar updated again

Because I’m a fickle git. Note that the “Contact” link has a new drop-down menu – but it’s still a link to the Contact page. A bit misleading – will probably update it again so that the actual pages only appear in the drop-down menus.

YouTube update 04/01/12

Hi, 2012! Here’s a new track for the new year – suitably different and epic (in my humblest opinion, of course), a bit like the first one I uploaded last year (Economy of Truth). That one was a tad late for the new year, though – it wasn’t until February that I uploaded anything to …

It feels good to be right for once (though it was mostly a fluke)

Well, I’d like to think it was my open letter to old featherbrain that finally knocked some sense into him, because he wasn’t in the tree this morning. It wasn’t my letter that removed him from his usual perch, of course – it was probably the fact that even he has the sense to steer …

Dear annoying bird

I have a simple question for you: How the fuck have you not been shot yet? Why in the everloving mother of hell is it a necessity for you, at half-past-four in the goddamn morning, for you to make that unbridled racket? I am not a heavy sleeper. Lots of things wake me up from …
