Horsell Common


About 18 months ago, while I was falling madly in love, I visited Nottingham with Crowd Control to see them play. While there, I found a copy of Jeff Wayne's musical version of War Of The Worlds on vinyl in a charity shop. I used to listen to it so much when I was a kid so I was absolutely stoked when I found it. It's in pretty great condition and the packaging is so good.

It still sounds good too.

I was born nearly 31 years ago. I wish I'd been born 18 years earlier so I could have seen Alien in the cinema without knowing anything about it.!v=0oYNvmNZP2o

I read an article recently about how the art of making teaser trailers was dead. Nothing is left to the imagination anymore. There's plenty of times I've watched a trailer and thought "Well, at least now I don't have to go and watch that" because everything is given away up front.

I'm watching Alien right now, anyways. Brett just bought the farm and Dallas is in the airducts.

I don't really wish I was born 18 years earlier. That'd make me almost 50...

Last year, in part celebrating my 30th year of staying alive, I went to Japan with my homies Chris and Laura, and met up with my ladylove Sarah and her brother James.

It really was one of the best times of my whole life. My plan to climb Mount Fuji on the eve of my birthday and watch the dawn didn't come to fruition, but the birthday I had was all the better because I got to have a good nights sleep, and I still got to make the climb a few days later.

I'm reminded of this because, right now, I'm trying to figure out if I buy a copy of Taiko no Tatsujin online, will it run on my Wii. We played this quite a bit while we were there, and while it'd definitely be more fun in the arcade, I'd quite like to be able to play it at home. Because, seriously, does this not look like the best time ever?

Burning Love


Time has really gotten away from me today. I've got Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade on while I'm cleaning up a little. I wanted to get out to the shops to get some food, but I honestly can't see that happening now. Oh well.

I did manage to get another piece of pixelart done, but I'm a little unhappy with the colours. I'll have to wait til I get my next delivery.

I can't wait til next weekend.


Stupid fucking fingers


This one took me three tried to do. I kept on knocking it and spilling the beads everywhere, but it eventually came out okay, I think.

I remember watching The Wizard, with Fred Savage, and them unveiling Super Mario Bros. 3 at the end. It looked like the coolest game ever. It was too. The powerups were really inspired. This one isn't my favourite, but it's definitely one of the best.
