Law and Order UK

I love the original Law and Order and more so Law and Order SVU so I was both excited and worried when I heard they were making Law and Order UK and, for the first series, take scripts from the US version. After six episodes, two of which I still have to watch, it seems […]

Sites that I visit on a daily basis

Lately I have been looking at changing my online experience and more so consolidating more things into fewer sites which really just makes it sound like I’m talking about a loan on daytime TV! In order to look at where I spend my time online I’ve monitored my online activity over a week with Google’s […]

Procrastination at it’s finest!

That’s a list of things I wanted to get done on this blog today ranging from sorting out some pages, clearing up the sidebar, transferring more content from cat on tumblr and creating new pages. How many of the things listed on that piece of paper have I actually done? That’s right, none of them. […]

#TwitLight: Who are you?

I’ve been thinking of having Twitter spotlights on my blog, like interviews getting to know people a bit more. Anyone interested? # Truth be told I’ve been thinking about this idea for a long time, but never mentioned it on Twitter until earlier today. The responses I received about them were great and several people […]

Twitter: PS3F members edition

Once upon a long time I’ve made it my mission to convert everyone I knew in real life and on the internet to using Twitter and I was more or less successful. Less successful in the case of the members and only a handful of them used Twitter, but in the last couple of […]

Don’t mess with me when I’m in a bad mood

Hi. I just wanted to say what an absolute pleasure it’s been sitting on the adjoining table for the past hour and having been privvy to your conversations. I sure am glad to hear that you have spent the past years in Kabul working on a construction and living in luxury being serviced by oriental […]

Mary Higgins Clark – Two little girls in blue

Back in another life when I was still reading a lot of books, Mary Higgins Clark was one of my favourite authors. “I’ll be seeing you”, “Where are the children?” and “Remember me” are some of the ones I spend sleepless nights with. However, once I’ve read a few of her books the concept of […]

Video Game soundtracks

JPLS’ post on his favourite game music got me thinking on what my favourite gaming soundtracks are and why. Game music is an integral part of the game playing experience so it’s hardly surprising that most of the game music I own is from my favourite games and it’s also probably not very susprising that […]

It’s not easy..

My grandad [born in 1925] has Parkinson’s disease, very early onset of Alzheimer’s disease, had several strokes, a heart attack and has a pacemaker. Simple things such a trip into town to the doctor or his twice weekly rehab visits render him too tired to attempt anything else on the day and he sleeps several […]

10 things I have noticed about 24

A few days ago I started watching 24 season 3 and am currently on episode 19. These are some observations I’ve had regarding 24 as a whole: Most repeated phrases on 24 include: “Is there a problem?” and “I’m ordering you” both followed by meaningful looks and drawn out silences. Jack Bauer always seems to […]

Have I mentioned just how awesome the folks at are?

No? Well, it’s about time I did then! Back in February I saw the following tweet from Haymaker360j: The next person who signs up on 360 junkies and DMs me that they did will recieve a copy of F.E.A.R. 1 and 2 courtesy of me and the junkies staff Of course I did sign up […]

Some more links in the Killerspiele debate

After my other post looking into the debate to ban or restrict access to video games in Germany I’ve come across some more links that delve more into the topic, as well as some studies. Some are in German, so please use a translator. Der Markt verlangt nach Sensation [] – It appears that I’m […]

Say hello to an old friend – the Killerspiele discussion is back!

Those who know me know that I like to play video games. I like a variety of games, as the list of my favourite Xbox games shows, as well as many 360 games, such as Dead Rising, Oblivion, Mass Effect, Rainbow 6 Vegas and other games more commonly referred to as ‘kiddie games’. I have […]

Thoughts on the press in Winnenden

First of all I’d like to make clear that I am very sorry for anyone involved in the horrific attacs, including the students, their families and friends, the emergency personnel and the parents of the attacker Tim K. It’s shocking that this has happened and it shouldn’t have. Also, this post isn’t really very contstructed, […]

Apologies to all RSS readers

I’m currently in the process of importing posts from other places to this blog so you will most likely see them come up in the RSS. Sorry!

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 […]

Building the Millennium Falcon and showing the true hero of Star Wars!

There have been many Star Wars tribute videos out there and this is undoubly one of the better ones. I’m amazed at the effort that’s gone into this! via FallingBullets. Things that came to mind when I watched it: It’s completely inaccurate in the Star Wars universe! Greedo shot first! Why is Jean Luc Picard […]

To do list..

I have an incredibly bad memory, so bad that I need to write everything down. My laptop is usually covered with post-it notes, I use @rtm and Laterloop many times a day and I always tend to have a notepad open to quickly save links and snippets in. I star emails and RSS feeds that […]
