Karaoke Circus at the 100 Club

Another pair of months has past and another Karaoke Circus has been and gone. This time it was slightly different from the last couple as it was a) at the 100 Club and b) featured the Mystery Fax Machine Orchestra in its quite wide expanse – they filled most of the width of the 100 […]

So(l)dering Update

98 LEDs soldered in place. 28 to go. This morning my wake-up routine was: get up, check work hadn’t exploded (I’m on call), make coffee, switch on soldering iron, solder 2 rows of LEDs (saving the rest as I’ve almost run out), think about going to Maplin at lunch to buy another electronics kit to […]

New Shiny!

Because I like buying myself presents, I seem to have acquired a new camera. Instead of the random bits of Oxfam related, light leaky, film loving, toy-ness, I ‘ve actually gone and bought one released within the last 6 months – a Canon Powershot S90. I blame DrPlokta for buying a GF1 (which I was […]

The Cold North

I went on holiday the other week, as is (not) often my wont, and spent the time being remarkably relaxed in the mobile phone signal free idyll of Aviemore in sunny snowy Scotland. We got a lot of snow shortly after arriving, replenishing that already there, and I even had the chance to do a […]

In the ghettooooo

I went to Paperchase today and bought myself a nice big sheet of white card. I was given approving looks by the various customers (I suspect that they don’t get that many Metallica hat wearing bearded men trying to delicately manoeuvre a large piece of card around while pleading with the cashier to be careful […]

I Like The Pretty Lights

It’s bastard cold outside, but it does look rather nice. I suspect that this means we are about to be plunged into a neverending winter, where trains will be frozen in their sheds, roads covered with frictionless ice and airplanes will fall from the sky, crushing people as they trudge through the drifts towards the […]


It’s been a bit of week, as demonstrated by the fact that apart from a “powernap” at about midday I haven’t slept since Friday night (hooray for Sci-Fi-London and my 2nd consecutive weekend with some kind of all-nighter thing going on. I have another next week…). Anyways, not much in the way of creativity going […]


I like the Prince Charles Cinema.


I now have a balcony and I intend to use it – the polluted skies of north London are my new canvas. However, what Dan Germain said at Interesting about sunsets does, of course, also apply to sunrises.
