Shivering Isles update

I still haven’t bought Shivering Isles, mainly as I didn’t have any MS points and as I was a bit put off with the issues there apparently were. Well, there is an update coming out next week and I’m thinking I should really get it now. I should have the points later on today and […]

The 15th of May….

…. is only 18 days aways which also means that it’s only 18 days to my birthday. I’ve given up with hints btw, hence the direct post. ;) Amazon UK clicky link Amazon Germany clicky link You can also find that on the Countdown page. Talking about pages on this blog, I have now also […]

SHReK the THiRD achievement points for the game

As I have mentioned in several posts before, I am quite looking forward to the new Shrek film and game. Been playing the demo a few more times since my last posts and I will definitely buy it. The achievement points for it have been released today and they are looking fairly basic: 1. Spoon […]

360, cracking down and forums

So…. It’s been an interesting few days. Received Crackdown through the post on Monday. It’s a semi futuristic GTA type game with ability upgrades and generally quite fun. The main selling point is that it contains the Halo 3 beta which lasts three weeks after May, 16th. Yes, I am looking forward to the beta, […]

2nd Cousin twice removed?

English can be a difficult language. There are so many words or terms that I don’t know, even after living here for almost four years. Especially when it comes down to family relations. This image sums it all up perfectly: Gotta love Wikipedia. Cat

Everyone turning into stalkers?

Came across this during my more random internet travels. I use Google a lot. And I have used it to lookup people, find phonenumbers, addresses and such like. Google anyones name and you can see heaps of information on them unless they’re blessed [cursed?] with a common name. Is this the future? Everyone turning into […]

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix trailer

There is a new trailer out for Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix. It’s taking a few elements from the first trailer, but is a lot better. This is based on my favourite Harry Potter book, the idea behind Dolores Umbridge, the desperation that led to the forming of Dumbledore’s Army and the […]

SHReK the THiRD demo and film trailer

As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, there is a new Shrek film coming out, Shrek 3 or rather, SHRek the THiRD. To maximise the merchandise income there is also a multiplatform game based on the film coming out. Yeah, I should probably stop there. I mean, never mind just how good the first two […]

I have fallen in love

This image is taken from RachelCreative and there are many more quality images from a very talented person. I just love that picture, it’s a lovely building, the colours are great and it just has so much about it. I should really never be an art critic! ;) Cat

Forums, good or bad?

Picking up on a post BIG D made on his blog, I’ve lately been wondering about the meaning of forums and what comes with it. Some may also remember my previous posts about forums: “10 Things that annoy me about people on internet forums” and “How many forum members does it takes to change a […]

Negative Space Cartoons

During my internet travels I’ve come across the ‘Negative Spce Cartoons’, a series of cartoons that takes a new and different look at the film industry. There are many more on the site, these two are just my favourites. The Blog: Lost in Negative Space. Talking of M. Night Shyamalan, he’s got a new film […]

Top 10 Doctor Who villains

A BBC poll tried to determine the 10 scariest Doctor Who Villains and without much of a surprise, the Daleks placed top: 1. The Daleks 2. The Empty Child Zombies 3. The Beast 4. The Cybermen 5. The Clockwork Droids 6. The Ood 7. The Empress of Racnoss 8. The Werewolf 9. The Autons/Nestenes 10. […]


I really can’t stand Internet Explorer, so I’m all for Firefox. It’s got the extension, add ons and themes that I want and is just perfect for me. There is an extensive campaign out on the internet of Firefox friends that want to convince everyone to stop using Internet Explorer and switch to Firefox instead. […]

The impossible battle against cancer

This is one of the most depressing things I have seen in a long time. It is a series of pictures by photographer Renée C. Byer that won this years Pulitzer Prize. If you are unfamiliar with the Pulitzer Prize, it is an American national award for all things print journalism, literary achievements and musical […]

Fly around in Darth Vader’s head

Well, not quite, but you get the gist. A member of the Belgian 501st Legion created the Darth Vader Balloon which took about three weeks to put together. Worth the effort? I sure think so. Cat

The new Halo 2 maps.

So, I haven’t played Halo2 in ages and originally wasn’t intending to ever play it again, however with the arrival of the new maps I could hardly resist. Especially as these new maps only cost $4 and one of them is a remake of Hang ’em High, a Halo 1 map. I would have never […]

And that’s that

My housemates are splitting up, Andrew will be moving out within the next month and Ian will sell the house. I will have to move yet again for the 6th time in 3 1/2 years. I don’t have the money to find a place on my own, so yet again I’ll have to live with […]

My Birthday….

…. is only 28 days away. May I direct all family, friends and anyone else who loves me so much that they would like to get me a present to the new page I’ve created? ;) Cat
