Vaughan has stolen my thunder. I was going to do something for the 12 days of Christmas. I could be childish and point out that the 12 days of Christmas start on Christmas Day but as I don’t actually have anything planned for then either … well I’ll just keep quiet. Ohh and the first…

In the immortal words of… some man .. some place.. That was Fan-fuckin-tastic!! I don’t want to spoil it for anyone, suffice to say (although it’s not really I could waffle on about this for ages… well.. paragraphs…) that he covers the usual diverse topics, horses, dentists, the bible, christmas, bananas, dna, the pope… and…

No, not West Side Story, nor Genesis or even the Smashing Pumpkins (mainly because they haven’t reformed.. duh) but Eddie Izzard on his SEXiE Tour. Sold out for weeks it was, but thankfully I have a very very very good friend (he’s such a great guy, I really can’t say enough about him…) who works…

Live: Champions League draw. OK, I was listening to Radio 5 (over the internet) to catch the Champions League draw. I also had open the above page (may move as the BBC are prone to do). Thing is, I happened to refresh the page after hearing the first two teams drawn and was surprised to…

You know how these things work, someone says they’ve never had a mince pie before and are wondering what’s in one. You say mince. They say I thought it was fruit and stuff. You say Ohhh you mean mincemeat… Interesting Thing of the Day: Mincemeat

True Love

I love my bed. Which is odd as I spend increasingly less time with it, yet it never complains, whines or moans, but welcomes me with the same soothing creak and clunk everytime. But that loving welcome is not given for free, ohh no, there are unwritten demands, unspoken requirements which you willingly trade for…

Done a little tidying up and updating behind the scenes. Add a little to the About page, the film reviews are now up-to-date (and I’ve discovered that paying £10 a month to UGC is actually costing me money so far as I’ve not seen the 24 or so movies I need to, only 6 short…

deviantART: News: Winamp 5.0 RC10: “Note that while the download link leads to “winamp50beta4_full.exe”, you are actually downloading RC10.” iTunes is great. On my home PC, but it struggles along on my work laptop so I’ve ditched it and gone back to Winamp. Except this is Winamp 5, a whole new world. Except it’s not…

www.snowgoon.co.uk should now take you to this page directly. So if you changed to www.snowgoon.co.uk/index.php then sorry, you need to change it back. If you didn’t change your link, or have no idea what I’m wittering on about, then you should’ve stopped reading about 42 words ago.

So here I am, wittering on in an unstructured manner about blog cliques and the like, whilst Tom (that’s Mr.Coates to you) is asking the important question: How many weblogs are there in the UK? He also points at a couple of ‘geographic portals’ which I should be listed on… er.. I think… better check…

Blog to the Future II

Reading time: 2 mins

The one where the space-blog continuum almost gets disrupted. I’ve posted and written about many things but none have a hit the nerve that my recent posting about the future of blog linking (aka the future of blog cliques) seems to have. Firstly, thanks to everyone who commented, I did read every comment, and decided…

Saw Love Actually last night. Very good. Touchingly funny, with some real tear-jerker moments, as well as a couple of very subtlely played scenes, particularly one featuring ‘the paranoid brother’ (don’t want to say too much if you’ve not seen the movie). I laughed, I choked back some tears and left the cinema feeling all…
