  • Apple TV

    I couldn’t wait to get my hands on an Apple TV and I managed to buy one at GHC in town today. Yaaay! I took some pics of the unboxing, for all you Apple obsessives, just click the pic above for the gallery. The installation was the usual Apple breeze. Plugged in the power, plugged…

  • Lancet Editor: Our Government Are War Criminals

    Our Glorious Leader This Labour government, which includes Gordon Brown as much as it does Tony Blair, is party to a war crime of monstrous proportions. Yet our political consensus prevents any judicial or civil society response. Britain is paralysed by its own indifference. At a time when we are celebrating our enlightened abolition of…

  • Why I Still Love Hip Hop (Part 4,192)

    Sweatshop Union – thank fuck for this band! Following on from the previous post, this sums up how I feel at the moment: The whole world’s a sweatshop, a fascist regime With billions of parts, working as a massive machine The goal, keep the masses, passive between Cash, limosines and other fabulous things But we…

  • 655,000 – MoD Adviser Agreed

    The “liberating” bombs of the US and UK forces – apparently completely harmless to Iraqis. The British government was advised against publicly criticising a report estimating that 655,000 Iraqis had died due to the war, the BBC has learnt. […] the Ministry of Defence’s chief scientific adviser said the survey’s methods were “close to best…

  • Mosh Friday 23/3/07

    5.35am! Argh! Soooo tired… Mosh was again excellent fun tonight, though it took a little while to get going properly. The last hour was rip-roaring fun. Particularly when DJ Corum graced the dance floor with his presence. 😀 Click the pic above for the gallery!

  • 60% Of Britons Think Invading Iraq Was Wrong

    A third of people in the UK think the war in Iraq was justified but six in 10 believe it was a mistake, a BBC survey suggests. While 29% said taking military action against Iraq in 2003 was the right thing to do, only 5% of those questioned felt safer now. The survey also found…

  • Iraqi Refugees Ignored

    “There has been an abject denial of the impact, the humanitarian impact, of the war, the huge displacement within Iraq of up to 1.9 million people who are homeless because of the war, and those people who are homeless and never got back to the homes after Saddam Hussein was overthrown,” UNHCR spokesman Peter Kessler…

  • Chris Pics

    Just three snaps of Chris in Big Blue yesterday. I took them to show him how the Fuji F30 performs with no flash at different ISOs. Click the pic!

  • Seven Seconds Of Hail

    Some hail, earlier today. I tried using YouTube for this clip but the compression was horrible – ruined it. Imeem to the rescue once again!

  • Hail In Derby

    Tell you what, it’s bastard difficult to take photos of hail. Click the pic above for a very unsuccessful gallery of hail shots. I got hail in my face till my eyeballs wept humour for this?

  • KFC

    This is an experimental set wherein I’ve tried to make the… er… heavily weathered interior of KFC in town look like a shining Xanadu. This necessarily involved some industrial-grade photoshopping. Click the pic for the lambent glory!

    Park Safe. Safe. Parksafe safe? Click the pic. Safe.

Organisers said thousands marched through Manhattan calling for troops…

  • Hip Hop 1 : Indie 0

    The Perceptionists: not big Bush fans… Here’s a CD playlist I did for a mate of mine. It’s hip hop I love from the last three years, a CDR hand-crafted for car-rattling pleasure: AKIR – Politricks Cyne – Automaton Sweatshop Union – US Danger Doom – A.T.H.F. Skinnyman – No Big Ting Ghostface – R.A.G.U.…

  • Why Not Trident Relief?

    Comic Relief has raised more than £40m during an eight-hour TV show which featured sketches starring Tony Blair, Kate Moss and a host of comedians. (Source: BBC News) So… jovial mass-murderer Tony Blair has gamely joined in with Comic Relief and helped raise £40m. Forty million pounds – that’s about enough for a a couple…
