Cake or pie?

Uh… okay. WordPress gave me a bunch of suggestions as to what my next post should be, and this was one of them. Yep. Obviously nothing I say could be as funny or insightful as this response to this age-old question. So I’ll keep it brief – for me, it’s pie. But ice cream is …

This post makes me sound old but I’m actually young

I was born in the 90’s. As such, I sort of feel regret at not having heard all the great bands of the decades preceding that time period. I don’t listen to enough music from those days gone by. I’ve always liked Black Sabbath (formed in 1968) and Queen (1971), and lately I’ve really taken …

YouTube update 03/10/11

Just one video this time, but it’s without doubt one of my best yet – at 6:21, it’s definitely my longest ever, beating Built to Kill by 21 seconds. (Yes, the actual song is 6:21. The video is 6:23 but those are two extra seconds of silence, basically.) Also, strictly speaking, this is the one …

Important: So long, Blighty

I’m no patriot – I hate the way people insist that their country is great just because they happened to be born there – but I love this country anyway. It’s been a good twenty years. For nearly 7300 days (not counting holidays abroad), I have lived in this country. And I’ve enjoyed it. Once …

I just caught a glimpse of myself

It’s 2:00am. This look typically doesn’t go down well, does it?
