Pirates of the Caribbean – At World’s End Gametrailer

Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favourite franchise of recent years. Both films are absolutely brilliant with Johnny Depp as ‘Captain Jack Sparrow’, one of the best characters around. After watching the first two films many, many times I cannot wait for the next one to come out. The release for that is […]

“Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in America would be like setting Halo in Disneyland”

It’s been less than two days since the release of the GTA IV trailer and there are already complaints about the game. “Setting Grand Theft Auto in the safest big city in America would be like setting Halo in Disneyland,” said City Councilman Peter Vallone, chairman of the Council’s Public Safety Committee. “It’s despicable to […]

Captcha, or how much I hate it

Spam is everywhere. I am very grateful that wp.com has Akismet which is a spam catcher and catches pretty much all the spam. According to them 95% of all comments on blogs are spam. That is incredible. Have a look on the site for more statistics. Other sites don’t have Akismet and rely on other […]

Spelling and typing

I spend a lot of time on the PC/internet and I am typing a lot. Most of that is on msn, but there is a lot on forums, the blog and emails as well. I care a lot about how things are spelled, I know this isn’t my first language, but I believe that I […]

GTA intros

This whole talking about GTA and GTA games has made me feel nostalgic about the intros which are always excellent. If you haven’t seen them yet, judge for yourself. There are no spoilers. :) GTA III: GTA Vice City: GTA San Andreas: I have not played the earlier ones, so I can’t comment on them. […]

GTA IV trailer out now!

After a long wait and some very interesting advertisement, the GTA IV trailer is now out. So what can we see? First of all it does feel a little bit disappointing. The actual game images are only about fifty seconds of it and mostly consist of random flybys. Graphically it does look impressive, however, it’s […]

Death Note

I have never really seen any animes or liked them before. I gave Naruto a quick go and Bleach, after everyone said they were amazing, but just couldn’t get into it. A while back everyone started telling me about this new anime that is just so incredible good. I was sceptical, as they’ve said it […]

Oblivion – Shivering Isles expansion

The Oblivion expansion ‘Shivering Isles’ is finally out and it might finally give me a reason to start gaming again. It’s been over a month that I was properly gaming last. It’s like I’ve lost the will to play games. But Oblivion might just bring me back to it. I haven’t played it since I […]

404 – Page not found

The amount of times it happens to me on sites that I follow a link and it takes me nowhere. Did you always want to know how it’s said in other languages? Have a look at this site which lists quite a few languages and even dialects, including this image: Cat

“Does Harry Potter die in the Order of the the Phoenix?”

I find it very interesting what people are searching for to reach this blog and I reall have had the most random stuff. Lately most of my traffic seems to be coming from people searching for David and Victoria Beckham and the term Size Zero which is obviously related to my Size Zero post. What […]

Quotes, one liners, phrases and what I say a lot.

Doing my usual blogsurfing today, I came across this post listing the Top 10 Action Hero one liners. Now, I disagree to an extent and I haven’t even heard some of the one liners mentioned which is most likely related to the fact that I hadn’t heard of some films. One thing that surprised me […]

Say hello to Sam

Picked up one of the little ones yesterday, I just couldn’t resist. They are so incredibly light and just so gorgeous. Take a look at Sam. :D Cat

Star Trek – Deep Space Nine

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but I am quite a bit of a Star Trek fan. I used to watch it occasionally when I was younger, but in the last year I’ve pretty much seen every episode of Voyager, Deep Space 9 and the Next Generation. They are all pretty good and […]

Music – Haunted Plastic

This is the band of a mate of mine and I really love the song. It is extremely catch and I can’t stop listening to it. Link. Cat

Kitten update

The kittens are now one week old, they have names and the countdown to them opening their eyes has started. I am very impressed in the way Phoebe allows me to get close to them. I mean I have only touched them once, but she leaves the room when I’m in here and has no […]

Patricia Cornwell – Looking at Kay Scarpetta

Patricia Cornwell is undoubtedly one of my favourite if not my favourite author. She is the creator of Kay Scarpetta a forensic investigator who solves a variety of connected crimes using forensics which apparently influenced the TV series CSI to a great deal. In addition she also wrote several non fiction books and a book […]

Rivalry

The PS3 finally launched in Europe and so far it seems to be selling quite well. According to some analysts, it’s selling better than the 360 did at launch. There are many places where they haven’t sold out though. Sony have done several release stunts, including giving away free TV’s, however something that seems to […]

I live with crazy people!

I love my housemates, I really do, but sometimes it makes me wonder just how sane they are. Probably not very much, considering they put up with me…. Anyways, Ian thought it was a great idea trying out all the stuff his funky webcam can do and he ended up taking a video of himself […]
