Jaded Vision

    No Comments

    It would be easy to talk about Brexit or IoT as a reason to become cynical and jaded in the UK, but it wouldn’t be interesting, nor novel. There’s just way too much that’s already been said, and in any case it tends to polarise people into the pro- and anti- camps, and I don’t want to be walking that road this morning. Instead I will mention streaming video.

    Learning a Craft

    This week, Louise has been doing her best to addict me to the game of Minecraft. It started innocently enough of course, with her gifting me a licence key, and then inviting me into her world, where I am the novice of all novices. I proceeded of course to build my obsidian Evil Tower of Eviltude™ with attached Secret Underground Lair™ hidden beneath. Read more…

    Weekend Reading

    No Comments

    So this weekend we visited the lovely Katelyn in Reading, where much wine was consumed, home made pizza was made and eaten, and a whole lot of the Game of Thrones rewatch happened. So a big thanks to our hostess, who put up with my grumpiness and who fed us a lovely breakfast… We’re now almost home stopping for supper at Paddington.

    Game of Thrones - Season 3

    Game of Thrones – Season 3

    By custom, just before the new season of “Game of Thrones” airs (this year will be season 4 and will broadcast in about 6 weeks time), I do a rewatch of the previous seasons. And today, in a reversal of my recent fortune my blu ray copy of season 3 arrived!  Read more…

    Lamb and Vegetables

    Today is a friend’s birthday. If you share this friend, you’ll know this already of course (probably), though since she doesn’t share the information on the Book of Faces, I’ll not reveal her identity publicly here either, though initials are “ER”. Nevertheless, she has a day off work and is coming to visit. Later there will be food, drink and potentially wildness. Mutual friends in the area are welcome to come and share a glass or three of something celebratory in her honour, but I think we’re out of spaces for food.

    Food, as it happens will be a mildly spiced dish of lamb, slow roasted with mediterranean vegetables and served with couscous and wine from the region, though let’s be honest, any good red wine is going to work here, so we’ll see what we can find. There’s a Morrisons up the road in Chalk Farm, and a Majestic just across the road from it if we get stuck. As to the rest, movies and/or music are a possibility!

    The other thing on my mind to do soon is “The Great Game Of Thrones Rewatch 2014”. In previous years, I have watched the story from episode 1.01 until the most recent in advance of the new season starting. This year, as ’twill be season 4, that means I have 30 hour long episodes to watch, and perhaps blog or tweet about before that happens on or about the 7th of April. That’s just 6 weeks or so away so I’ll have to start soon. It also means I need to get my finger pulled out to order the Season 3 Blu Ray set… Of course, there are plenty of other things I want to get and watch, but until I get a job, then I’m limited to what’s reduced or on offer. Still, that’s what wish lists are for, right?
