DVD: WALL-E Due to inconvenient timing of becoming a Dad, I missed this particular Pixar film on the big screen. Which, having seen it on Blu-Ray, seems a shame.

An essay on the poor writing that goes with lists of N things, and no, it’s not a list of N things that are wrong with such lists.
I recently signed up with Nuffnang blog network, in an attempt to try and bring a small amount of money in from all the time I keep pouring into the site. Imagine my surprise when they sent me out a box with some product samples in it, and a welcome letter – all before they’ve […]
