I now blog for the nice For Books' Sake people about books. Up first: The End Of The Affair by Graham Greene.
My Dork Adore article on 3D TV, after I attended a demo last week. Actually quite chuffed with this one. Do read if you have a moment.
I could’ve just let the whole thing die, really. The internet is littered with dead blogs that the owners never bothered finishing, no-one would have noticed one more. Hell, even I barely remember…
Oh, and if you want to cut out the middle man, you can watch The Guild for free on their website.
(If peering at it is hurting your eyes, feel free to click it bigger.)
If you want to listen to said album, you can do so here on Spotify. Not sure if I’d recommend it or not. They’ve produced a rather generic bouncy-indie album, really. Loud guitars, bit of shouting; it’s well-made enough but everything is the same basic tempo and it makes the whole record sound a bit samey.
There is a change of pace in the form of Down To The River, but unfortunately it’s a bit plodding and rubbish. The title track and Sentimental are quite decent, as are some others, but they get submerged beneath the raft of similar-sounding tracks.
Shame, as I have a lot of nostalgic love for Feeder and do genuinely want them to succeed, but this really isn’t a great record. Never mind.
Man Vs Camera #88: Dust Bowl 2010
My Dork Adore review of the second Doctor Who Adventure Game chapter, which I forgot to link here when it was originally posted. Whoops.
So, yeah, I joined DailyBooth. Very briefly. Didn’t really work, for the following reasons:
- I do not suffer from the kind of narcissism required to post a picture of my face on the internet every day. Yes, my Twitter account could well betray a different form of narcissism, but that’s for another day.
- And, sub-point of the above, even if you do post a picture of your face, no-one there cares if you’re not a girl anyway.
- AND definitely no-one cares about my pictures of random objects at stupid angles.
So yeah, not really for me. My account is still open, mostly because it’s currently impossible to delete your DailyBooth account. Seriously, it says “for the time being you will need to just hold off” in their FAQ. So I just removed most of the pictures instead.
I may re-post the two or three Daily Booth pictures I actually liked here under my “Man Vs Camera” photography heading thing, just so they aren’t lost forever.
