Just a quick skip round my busy life.
First, blog direction. Once I get settled and my course out the way, one way or another, the blog will become more focused on video games, with just the odd bit of me dicking about thrown in. Or maybe it won't, depends how I feel.
So vid games first, despite having a Wii now (stupid name) am sworn off games 'til course has run its course, so nothing to see here.
In music, saw Half Man Half Biscuit (for the fourth time) at Rock City (thanks Beth for belated Xmas prezzie) last week. Contrary to last time they were great and there was little lariness from the crowd. Excellent, Mr Eldritch's (my oppo on the night) review here.
Saw the best film I've seen in some considerable time with fellow work interns last week. It were Lars and the Real Girl and it was beautiful and touching, perfectly weighted and didn't put a foot wrong.
Talking of feet, congrats to Notts for clawing their way to continuing league status with a gritty performance v Wycombe. Outclassed on the day by a side with better skills and better team abilities the rugged Notts defence held out and it was fitting that my player of the year Richard Butcher got the goal that saved us (very surprised Pilko got players' and fans' awards well though he's played). Phew!
Finally a TV recommendation. Kids' show Hedz (BBC2 Saturday mornings) is great!!!! OK it's just people dicking about with big cardboard cut-outs on their faces, but it is great (if reminiscent of Vic and Bob's Action Image Exchange [with hand gestures]). Here's a clip that demonstrates more sophisticated political humour than the once-great Have I Got News for You which has been awful first 2 shows up.
