    2/365 Hope by rutty is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA Ruby and I went to see Rogue One today. I’m lucky, in that my daughter loves Star Wars and I have a great excuse to watch as much Star Wars stuff as I can fit into our busy schedules. The first five seasons of The Clone […]

  • Asleep In The Deep

    Asleep In The Deep

    I was mightily impressed with Mastodon’s most recent album. It was heavy, yet melodic; an impressive feat and one of my favourite recent purchases. Check out their vide for Asleep In The Deep – it’s NUTS:

  • So, I was on That Doctor Who Live tonight and I totally dicked it up.So, due to the #twittersilence thing, I didn’t want to come to you all and apologise, but it’s past midnight now, so here it is. via I want to shoot myself in the head | The Dogs Blogs. Rufus Hound explains […]

  • Get in the sack

    I follow a good few comedians on Twitter and one of my favourites is Dara O’Briain. He’s as sharp as a tack and as funny as hell. Here he is sticking the knife into unscientific “medical” practices: As a brucey bonus, here’s a related portion of the extremely funny Mitchell & Webb taking the funny […]

  • Some things remain in the memory for a long time. I have no idea why but one Children’s Film Foundation series really buried itself in my psyche: Chico the Rainmaker. I remember going along to our local cinema (The Lounge in Headingley) to watch the matinée screenings. This was one of my favourite programs for […]

  • Go and watch this before it’s taken off. It’s brilliant – pure Whedon genius. Funny and bittersweet, just as it should be.

  • …when you start listening to BBC Radio 2. Let’s get this straight – I’ve not started some habit-forming addition to the radio station or anything, it’s just that I’ve listened to it once. And I kinda liked it. I’d dropped my girlfriend off at some friends’ house in Manchester yesterday. She’s off to Morocco (without […]

  • I’ve been listening to some quite heavy stuff this week, but not matter where my current musical tastes lie I can always fall back to this song: I think I’ve posted a different version of this very song before. It remains my favourite track of all time. I love these guys!

  • The Burning Crusade

    The Burning Crusade – Day 26 Originally uploaded by rutty. World of Warcraft got better this week with the release of the first Expansion, The Burning Crusade. Expect no end of pale-faced geeks to spending even more time sat in front of their PCs running around in a fantasy world hitting things with swords, maces […]

  • Last Saturday night millions of UK viewers tuned in to see Leona win the third series of The X Factor, probably the most popular, and influential, talent show around at the moment. Now, Leona is a real talent. She has an incredible voice and immense potential and I’m pleased that she’s won this competition. However, […]

  • Ragnaros at last

    Ragnaros Originally uploaded by rutty. Some games get a little addictive. I suppose you could say that I’m just a little bit addicted to World of Warcraft. I’ve been playing this thing for over 2 years now – I started in the Beta stages of the game’s development too – and I just can’t seem […]

  • Eurosport

    I’ve just been watching Eurosport while I was waiting for the nice Gritish Bass man to fix our central heating. There was football on, a lot of football. I got to watch a bit of Celtic versus Benfica followed by Spurs against Besiktas. I don’t often get to watch much football so it was nice […]
