Here’s my latest YouTube video, half an hour of playing a terrible game that doesn’t have a soundtrack of any description because the main character is deaf.

Hi there, just thought I’d make you aware of the Patreon I’ve set up, in an attempt to encourage me to start doing more (and more interesting) stuff on here. I was thinking something along the lines of a regular podcast or video thing, the sort of things that internet-famous people do. Y’know, because I need encouragement to do silly things…

Really it’s just an excuse to raise funds to bribe Gem so she leaves me be to record stuff, rather than making me do the washing up or whatever. I’ll still have to do the washing up, so maybe that’s a poor example.

Anyway, go and have a look and share it about a bit, there are a bunch of different goals, some poorly thought out rewards and the like. Hopefully it’ll work out well for me, you and the entire world.

While shopping yesterday, we happened to go down the American Sweets aisle of Tesco, and the kids spotted these Beanboozled jelly beans. They suggested we eat them and film the results.

So, it seems that despite the curmudgeonly efforts of my generation, mobile phone games continue to be more than just Snake II, getting more advanced and fun with every passing day. The latest offering in the endless stream of games that my six-year old daughter, Megan will play at full volume next to my sleeping face at 5:30AM is Cooking Fever, a restaurant simulation game, that requires good time management and the ability not to get stressed.

So, who better to ask to review this game than Megan, on day release from her work down t’pit. (this is Yorkshire, after all)…

Hello again everyone.

Some more things arrived from the German people, and for some reason a lot of folk like reading about it. So here are last night’s unboxing tweets. I’m pretty sure I kept the content Safe For Work, but, well, you probably shouldn’t be looking at my blog when you’re at work anyway. Get some work done you lazy sod. No wonder the economy’s knackered.

You ready? Of course you’re not…

Just found this pic in my Facebook memories, and thought it deserved a wider audience…

Hello boys and girls.

I have about an hour of sitting on my arse as we commute between jobs, so figured a bit of random internet content creation would stop me getting frustrated by the Radio Leeds phone-in show that is being piped into my ears.

On an unrelated note, I updated my phone and it now has a spell-checker. It doesn’t think arse is a word. (more…)
