November 2014

It's another round of Portmantwho, the Doctor Who name game that nobody else is playing:

I presume that the 10th of November was a Monday, and that I felt to share the lyrics to Pulp's 'Monday Morning':

Here's artist Chris Wormell being fantastic in a window:

It might have been another Wendy Williams:

Here's a collection of retweets sharing the now optimistic hashtag #CameronMustGo. They are just as relevant now given recent events:

Democracy Inaction

Well, the election was a bit of a surprise and a lot of a disappointment.

There's a general election today.

Friedrich Schiller said "Every people gets the government it deserves."

Don't you deserve better than this?

October 2014.

The link won't work, but I still recommend the film:

Hong Tong is the Dreddverse's name for Hong Kong:

Another portmantwho:

We still want a Dredd sequel:

My thirty-third birthday inspired this quote from Pulp's Dishes:

And this swipe at David Cameron:

I still cannot believe Channel 4 was so short-sighted:

I had a couple of comedy sketches accepted into the most recent run of Newsrevue, the world's longest running live comedy show. The show resides at the Canal Café Theatre every Thursday to Sunday and is a topical and satirical sketch show. The last run was directed by Mark Collier and starred Naomi Bullock, Rachael Owens, Chazz Redhead and Ben Vivian-Jones.

I was lucky enough to see the show on Friday and it was fantastic. I'm enormously grateful to all concerned.

I don't know if either of my sketches will remain in the show for the next run, but I'm very pleased to have had them accepted and, more importantly, I'm determined to write some more.

August and September

Today is Red Nose Day. Every other year millions of people do something funny for money and raise millions more for Comic Relief.

In previous years, the red noses have gone on sale in threes and I took the following photos in 2009, 2011 and 2013. Seven years on, this feels like a tradition I must maintain.

This year three more noses went on sale. Along with three more. And another three. They were sold in opaque bags, which meant that in order to collect all nine, you probably had to buy dozens. I'm not complaining, it's all for charity. I only managed to find five of the noses. I won't tell you what I spent.

I've taken another photo in the same vein with this year's noses:

As you can see, glasses were also available, so naturally I bought them as well.

Go on, donate.
