A tree in a tree!

Took a break from Christmas knitting the other day and attempted a couple of Christmas decorations with dubious results. I made a star of which we won’t speak of again and a Christmas tree based on this pattern. I’m not very happy with the tree though crocheting a gold border around it gave it some […]

Need more soundtracks. Need them now!

Having just started a “normal” 9-5 job again I have discovered I’m in need of more orchestral soundtracks from either films or games. Whilst my iPod has over 70GB of music, a large part of it is unsuitable as it’s with lyrics which distracts me too much or, worse, could lead me to sing along. […]

Saying one thing yet doing another!

I have noticed several times in the past that once I write a post about losing interest with something I suddenly find myself interested again. As it just happened with gaming. Last week I wrote a long post on how I’m not interested in gaming these days and how I’ve lost interest in gaming journalism […]

The Hobbit

I’m currently listening to ‘The Hobbit’ written by J. R. R. Tolkien and read by Rob Inglis. It’s this version. Over the years I’ve always insisted that I don’t like audiobooks much and have only ever listened to a few which includes Stephen Fry reading Harry Potter, several Patricia Cornwell ones, Stephen Hawking, and the […]

The Tudors – The game [No, really..]

. I have played many games based on a film or TV franchise including Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Shrek, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lost, Buffy and more. I would even consider some of them to be amongst my favourite Xbox 1.0 games. Games directly based on films or shows have to be fairly […]

Dragon Age: Origins. Who would have thought a dog could save the world?

I’ve finally completed Dragon Age Origins and overall it’s the first BioWare game I’ve mostly not enjoyed, despite wanting to like it all the way through. The last three hours were painful and, although final bossfights tend to let me forget how much hassle they were moments after beating them, I still can’t forgive DAO […]

Welcome to the TGI Friday edition of #TwitLight and it’s participant @chrisbrownsell! I first came across @chrisbrownsell a couple of months ago when I was […]

Some statistics about the music I listen to.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned a few times that I absolutely love stats and my curiosity was sparked when I came across this post on tumblr. I’ve added some bits and removed others, however. Unless stated otherwise all the following exclude podcasts and audiobooks and I’ve excluded all songs that aren’t properly tagged and as such […]
