  1. EGX Rezzed: March 2015

    I am disappointed that Rezzed moved to London this year. I live in Birmingham and really enjoyed going for the last 2 years. I guess London has to be kept happy though and it's the trade-off for getting the main EGX show in September.

    Sea Creatures by SOAK is such a great song!
  3. World of Warcraft

    So is anyone still playing WoW at this point? Last time I played was during Cata - Killed Deathwing a few times with the guild I'd been in since the end of Vanilla, and then things turned sour so I quit. 2.5 years later, I got drawn back into the game because a few former guilds decided to return. I've now completely fallen down the WoW rabbit-hole, which is something I never thought I'd do again. Blizzard have really worked on the story-telling and single player experience in the game. Leveling 90 to 100 was fun (I've already levelled 3 toons to 100). After that though, I'm a bit indifferent about the general content at level 100. It's awesome that the expansion isn't mass daily quests, but at the same time, there's not much to do. It's not so bad for myself, as I'm slightly obsessive about stuff like mount & pet collecting. Raid content - Highmaul was pretty dull. There was nothing special in there and it wasn't a very interesting place. Blackrock Foundary - my guild's been there twice but it seems like a really good raid instance so far. Feels like a "proper" raid (more like something from TBC-era). We'll see how it goes though. Oh, and if you're interesting, I play an Elemental Shaman. We all know that Shaman are the best.

    So I'm a big fan of Late of the Pier and have been hoping for ages there'd be a follow-up to 2008's awesome "Black Fantasy Channel". Doesn't look like this is going to happening any time soon. There was an unexpected surprise this week when LotP frontman Sam Eastgate aka Samuel Dust re-appeared with a new track under his LA Priest monicker with a new track and the announcement he's signed to Domino Records: The news got even better when I discovered LotP drummer, Ross Dawson, has also join a new band, Zibra:

    Just to follow-up on this. I received my lovely white vinyl copy of the Ghost Culture album at the weekend. I'm really enjoying it and would recommend checking it out.

    Daniel Avery's album is awesome. It's available through Erol Alkan's record label, Phantasy Sound. The whole album is brilliant - I particular like the tracks Water Jump and Drone Logic. I'm excited for the album release of another Phantasy Sound artist in January - Ghost Culture.
  7. Crikey, It's Christmas (2014)!

    Jingle Cats is crazy - They have an entire album of Christmas songs. I bought it for an ex-girlfriend a few years back and she insisted on having it on loop for most of Christmas day.
  8. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    No, it was known by it's original title "Star Wars". The "A New Hope" sub-title was added later on in 1981. "The Empire Strikes Back" & "Return of the Jedi" was titles in their own right though.
  9. Star Wars VII - Open spoilers

    I guess part of the problem is that "The Force Awakens" is designed to be a sub-title. The original trilogy were titles in their own right and turned into Star Wars sub-titles later on.
  10. Photos of things

    Some of the quotes in this article about the match amused me - "According to the US commentators all New Zealand babies have a rugby ball in their crib"

    I'm guessing it was a heavy loss.
  12. Life

    I feel your pain. I can only grow a sparse section of facial hair underneath my chin/on my neck. I would absolutely love to be able to grow a beard and/or moustache at least once. Alas, I'm destined to be a baby-face the rest of my life.
  13. Crikey, It's Christmas (2014)!

    I'm a bit later than previous years but I did start making Christmas puddings this weekend. Made me feel festive for about half an hour.
  14. Post your face!

    I'm assuming it wasn't just you and the guy running the karaoke that were there?

    I really love Mr. Oizo and cannot wait for his new album next month:
