Apologies for posting yet another YouTube video, but I just finished watching this and it definitely deserves a mention. Sometime when you’re online and have an hour or so to spare, look up this video on YouTube (or watch it here). It’s a lecture about achieving childhood dreams delivered by a professor with terminal cancer. [...]
I saw this for the first time last night and I love it! It’s very funny, and Christian Bale is typically outstanding.
From the BBC: A judge in New Zealand made a young girl a ward of court so that she could change the name she hated – Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii. Judge Rob Murfitt said that the name embarrassed the nine-year-old and could expose her to teasing. He attacked a trend of giving children [...]
This story has been running for a few days, but I didn’t blog about it because it’s kind of technical. It relates to events in Iraq over the past 2 years. Basically, McCain doesn’t know when ‘The Surge’ (an increase in troop levels, and the adoption of a new counter-insurgency strategy) began, even through he [...]
This is one of their better ones in recent times.
I wrote a post about my reasons for wanting to do medicine and upon finishing it I was too embarrassed to publish it. Suffice it to say, they were not particularly lofty, commendable or good. Methinks a reappraisal is in order…
I’ve been meaning to blog this for months, but I kept forgetting about it, despite how much it pisses me off. The title refers to a common American phrase, for instance, “John could care less about his neighbour”, which is intended to mean “John doesn’t care about his neighbour”. All arguments about linguistic evolution aside, [...]

Sitemeter never sleeps…
I saw this film earlier tonight on Sky One, and I swear it will be the last time I ever try to watch a movie on that channel. The ad-breaks are about 10 minutes long, and just when you think that you’ve seen the last idiotic commercial for their dreadful programming, along comes an advert [...]
I posted this a while ago, but the YouTube clip was subsequently taken down. It’s getting harder and harder to find embeddable music videos on the site, which makes it harder to promote bands that you like, and so I don’t see how this policy of disabling embeds benefits the music industry in anyway.
Is it foolish to buy a guitar online, especially if it’s an Epiphone, since their guitars can be a little hit and miss? I want to play heavy, detuned stuff more often, but my Strat can really handle lower tunings because of how it’s set up at present, and anyway Strats aren’t really metal guitars, [...]

Alexander Hleb has left Arsenal for Barcelona for £11.8 million. At 27, this makes him the best bargain for years in my estimation. Barcelona clearly think more of him than Arsenal did, since his buy-out clause has been set at over £70 million. While it’s true that he wanted to leave, surely Arsenal could have [...]keep looking »
