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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBXWBj7hIzg

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…… Continue reading Get in the sack
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…… Continue reading Chico, Chico the Rainmaker
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…… Continue reading You know when you’re getting old…
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!

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,…… Continue reading The X Factor – another nail in the coffin of original music
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…… Continue reading Ragnaros at last
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…… Continue reading Eurosport
