Overheard at Develop 2007, Brighton

Got back from Develop at Brighton at the weekend. Got some choice quotes from the couple of days I was there. “Do you do a fish butty?” (asked in the fish and chip shop next to the Hilton Metropole) “This is fucking awful!” (said by an unknown woman to Peter Molyneux outside the Hilton) “I’m […]

Gotta Love Councils

Got a letter through from my local council, telling me a local play area — swings, slides, other public-body approved child death traps — has “been put forward as a site for environmental improvement”. The real genius part of it is this: Please refer to the enclosed plan for details of the proposed scheme. The […]

neurothon II

What? I’m 32 years old on the 30th of March, 2006. This means it’s time for another drinking bash which, since 2004’s debauchery[1] was nicknamed “neurothon”, I’ve decided to call neurothon II: revenge of neurothon! As usual, my birthday seems to be falling on a random day — Thursday this year — so I thought […]

Glasgow Herald: Why the Pope Should Visit Ibrox
