Die mauer ist nicht so motorradfreundlich

Which, as far as my crude appreciation of the language of Siegfried goes, translates to the wall isn’t so motorcycle-friendly (he’s commenting on an orange crash barrier he avoids at a corner’s apex).

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Just back from seeing Kiss kiss bang bang at the London Film festival (thanks Billy) and tomorrow Billy has scored some tickets to hear the director talk.

Cool JS slider

Been meaning to have a play with this javascript slider. Oh, and the individual templates are broken while I try and fix comments…

Google v. The Lecture List

The Lecture List is a non-profit site that aims to promote public speaking across the UK. The site was launched with a generous grant from NESTA but for the last two years has been entirely supported by the time a...

Toddlers at work

This piece over at Digital Dad™ made me chuckle. CU-1 isn’t a toddler anymore (she’s three) but she’s been obsessed with computers, stereo, iPods and telephones almost since day one.


Eating scorpions

So Nicki, at long last, has started to blog about her experiences with food. She’s a professional food writer so was apprehensive at first, but it looks like she’s settling in nicely:-)

Just read a post on the Google Print copyright debacle which reminded me I got a bit tipsy last night and had a vigourous and interesting converstation with a barrister who specialises in intellectual property. We...

Google AdSense Account Disabled (2)

So yup, I’ve started digging around and we may have something here (thanks wAntAn productions: Google AdSense Account Disabled)

Google AdSense Account Disabled

I think we may have a thing here.

Fair Play isn’t

Chris Wheatley makes a few observations about iTunes 6. In particular:

John Peel’s Festive Fifty

A friend of Billy’s wanted this word spread:

The bigger picture

So I bought Nicki a Sony Ericsson K750i as she’s starting to write about food again and she needed a decent camera to upload to Flickr with. I just can’t get over the image quality on the thing. I pumps out 1600×1...


Pigs, burdock and Broadway

So exactly how often these days can you see a chap roasting an entire pig on a spit and what’s a burdock root anyway? Broadway market is looking pretty darn amazing right now. These guys come back every saturday–t...

Sorry, gotta go -- -(

Thank you Billy for pointing this out:-)

Things I learned by watching TV

Well, until about five minutes ago, I had absolutely no idea that Levon Helm and Robbie Roberston played with Bob Dylan.

Lick my ass

It’s funny, I’ve been tidying up my iTunes library and tracking down some of the more obscure cover art. On a couple of occasions, I’ve come across reviews of Miss Kittin albums and amusingly, even the more metrop...

Whipsnade face painting

Just love this picture. Not sure why exactly, but it’s something to do with the freshness of the whole thing.


Going to the mattresses

Spent the whole day at IKEA (both Wembley and Edmonton) not buying a mattress.



Note for Falby family: CU-1’s swimming pics are now in a flickr set so you can view them as a slideshow.


George Bush visits New Orleans

Ohna just sent this:

Now that’s what I call community policing

Apoa and Kiloh bond with the rozzers at this year’s Notting Hill Carnival :-)



Very smile-inducing voyage back to 1985 on engadget:


The George W. Bush Emergency Preparedness Award

Well, I feel a whole lot better now that the White House website is covered with pictures of the sensitive couple hugging refugees…


I still love the internet after all these years

Subject -- Vacation is Over…an open letter from Michael Moore to George W. Bush

Jed just sent me this. As ever, MM says it best… Friday, September 2nd, 2005

Movable Type 3.2

We’ll, the big one has just gone live :-)



Just watched the pilot of Lost.

Pissed-off reader

Received the following from a reader called Andrew MacLaren a few days ago. He does make some good points so I’ll see what I can do:-)

Flickr comes of age

From the Flickr news page entry dated 31st July, 2005

Funny guy

Maddox adds to the debate on the rise of Citizen’s Media


Sitting here chopping some complex css and Eminem’s Mockingbird comes on and I start blubbering like a baby. This happens every time I hear the song (i.e. it’s nothing to do with css…) I wonder what’s making me so...


Just nuts -- -)


Citizen’s media

I think by luck I posted some of the first pictures of Warren Street tube to Flickr. I was getting my hair cut on Googe street when I heard the news on the radio.

Chu Chi

“Pan Asian Diner and Takeaway”–the subtitle on the menu doesn’t say it all.


This one gets so far up my nose I could sneeze.
