Review ‘KNOCK KNOCK’

Seth Godin recently released a new eBook (pdf), KNOCK KNOCK, Seth Godin’s Incomplete Guide to Building a Web Site That Works. The book costs $9 and can be bought via PayPal. I’m glad that the pdf didn’t have any silly Digital Rights Management foolishness, unlike some eBooks that Amazon sell. The process was painless, the […]

Review ‘Free Prize Inside: The Next Big Marketing Idea’

I feel a little guilty here, hence this plug. I read most of this book over coffee in Borders and didn’t think I’d need to read it again so I didn’t buy it. Free Prize Inside: The Next Big Marketing Idea is a good book, it just wasn’t aimed at me. Seth Godin maintains his […]

First photo post

Ohhh, photos. The first shot was taken out of my back window, it was taken using the camera’s fully automatic mode. It is very dark – I had the flash turned off (not that it would have helped that much) as I was behind a pane of glass. The second was taken with a 15 […]

Sin City

First BBQ of the year

John has posted some pictures of my first barbie. Typically British weather, as he notes. Still, the weather can only get better from now on…

Blade Trinity

It always looks bad when they start the movie by explaining what’s happening right to the camera. Oh oh. But then…joy! We have the inspired addition of Van Wilder: Party Liason‘s Ryan Reynolds as an ex-vampire playboy gay vampire-killer, with his collection of one-liners and silly faces. But the vampire Pomeranian dog? The music was […]

How To Have A Number One The Easy Way: The Manual

Written by the KLF, subtitled THE JUSTIFIED ANCIENTS OF MU MU REVEAL THEIR ZENARCHISTIC METHOD USED IN MAKING THE UNTHINKABLE HAPPEN which details the KLF’s no-nonsense mechanistic guide to making a number one hit single (involves almost no money, just follow The Rules). Bit of an odd document, well worth a read.

Blogs-for-you

How do I find other blogs that are like my own? The blogosphere is pretty damned large, and trying to find others who blog about the same sort of thing as me is tricky. So tricky that I often don’t try, I just stumble onto them every now and again. Surely there’s a better way? […]
