As I write this, I’m perched on my amplifier, surrounded by books, CDs, old magazines, video games and DVDs. For some very, very, VERY stupid reason, I’ve decided to tidy up my bedroom. Continue reading
What a week. After 3 years away from it, and a grand total of 4 driving theory tests (3 first time round, then had to sit it again because it ran out of time), I finally passed my driving test. I’m pretty pleased with myself about this, as you can probably imagine. Continue reading
Welcome back to the 3rd part of my long-winded list of the various terms from Douglas Coupland’s novel Generation X: Tales For An Accelerated Culture. Continue reading
This is the second part of a triptych (oooo, fancy!) about one of my favourite books, Generation X: Tales For An Accelerated Culture. Continue reading

Another day, another set of shows to see, talk about and hopefully recommend to you.
We go back to our outside broadcast team, for the rest of the day’s proceedings.
