Clipping the Hobby Tree – Back to Basics

I recently learnt that hobbies can be difficult things. I like things, quite a lot of things. I particularly enjoy writing - the act of writing - and this started to become problematic. There is so much to write about out there in the world. Books, films, games, politics, history, hiking and walking... and I used… Continue reading Clipping the Hobby Tree – Back to Basics

Recent Articles Posted on n3rdabl3

I’ve been writing articles for n3rdabl3 over the past few months and generally, whilst good at sharing these posts out via Twitter and the like, I’m appallingly bad at writing them up as a post here on my own site.

Wooohoo! Why am I doing this? I don't really know. I wanted to see what the back end of a website looked… Continue reading I Haven’t Posted in a While

I Watch People Playing Videogames

... which is apparently a weird thing to do, according to a popular American comedian who has his own show in the US. I keep a keen eye on the Kotaku UK site for gaming news and deals and such, and chanced upon the articles discussing Kimmel's criticisms and subsequent YouTube backlash, and the whole… Continue reading I Watch People Playing Videogames

Fringe Poetry Events Added to Calendar

It's the Fringe! Which means the city is brimming with events, including the poetic - so I've added a few to the calendar. This is by no means everything, and there's no way I'm adding everything, because I wouldn't leave this desk for a week if I were to do so! Anyway, check it out… Continue reading Fringe Poetry Events Added to Calendar
