Other news of note

Well since there isn’t anything else to make it the “other” news of note – it is just news of note. I haven’t posted anything about  what has been happening in my life, so here is a bullet point list of things that has happened to me.

  • Not a lot
  • Got a job, still in the job after two months (yay for me)
  • Got tickets to see Muse
  • Got tickets to see the England cricket test match at Headingley
  • Leeds Rhinos have got to Wembley again, to play in the challenge cup final (yay for them)
  • Got tickets to see them at Wembley
  • Went to see Keane
  • ermmm is it worrying I’m already running out of things to put…..
  • Did some other crap not worth putting
  • Not  done much writing (bad for me)

I also went on the hallowed Headingley (rugby side) turf. Which was fun.


Ladies ;)

And last of all, I met Charley Boorman (touch me)….

A metal gear song of the month

A special song of the month to celebrate, and to say a little ‘thank you’ to a video franchise  very close to my nerdy heart. Metal gear, which is now over 25 years old.  Annoyingly, as I forgot about it, this post is a couple of days late of the actually date of the – but never mind.

Here is some great music from the franchise, it sums up emotion, action and energy of the series.


It might be a little strange to think that a video game franchise, is older than myself. However, my earliest memories of playing video games (on my sister’s PS1) were of Metal gear solid. At the age of 7, I first saw the advert on TV. And in a way only a 7 year old can, I somehow persuaded my parents to buy me this game – which was age rated at over double my age (granted that might have been slightly irresponsible but they are great parents). Ever since that time, Metal gear solid has been a huge part of gaming life – sometimes to a point of obsession.

Happy Birthday Metal Gear!!! And thanks for all the games
