I've had a look at some of the other blogs on JoeUser, and I'm impressed. You people talk in a way I can barely grasp, about things I won't care about until actual maturity hits me and I buy my first washing-up bowl, or I get beaten up badly or something (I haven't yet, but give it time). I feel kind of small, intellectually, and I am doing well at school. At least, I hope I am.

But sometimes, I come across a blog that does make an outrageous statement, or comments on a controversial issue, a...

Yes, for us brits, it's the summer holidays. So if you're British, and are below 16 or have the summer holidays anyway, enjoy them! Or, just enjoy the summer. Unless you're in a different season. In which case have a good whatever season- Argh, now my head hurts.

I'm going to go lie down.

So, I went on a school trip to the Globe Theatre yesterday to see The Merry Wives of Windsor. We went at about 9 in the morning, and came back at about 10 past 9 at night. Was it worth it?

Yes - the performance was brilliant. The "ye olde" language is easy to vaguely understand, and you will at least know all of the main characters by Act 2, but that pervious set of words sounds trite and pessimistic. The play was done with such energy and charisma, I thought one or two might explode. There w...

Seriously. I don't have anything to blog. I just had a weird compulsion to write somethig, but I had nothing to write about. Weird. Am I ill or something?

Oh, right, Super Smash Bros Brawl. It's out in the U.K. It's good, but a bit too easy and anyone that's not Sonic or Snake is too easy to unlock via a non-campaign unlock.

Captain Obvious signing off.

So, some PC stuff.

I read a claim here that the Spore Creature Creator Demo has SecuROM on it, which does an ET when you're connected to the internet. There have been problems with this in the past, mostly from Starforce published games. My response is...


The thing runs fine on my laptop, even though it is a bit slow. Major kudos to EA/Maxis for doing that. I couldn't care if it phones home, because, simply, there's no money in it. EA won't give any personal info away, becuase what ...

I hate Demomen. I HATE Demomen. With a capital HATE.

I have nothing against the black, scottish cyclops himself (or indeed, any black scottish people anywhere).The character makes me laugh out loud ("Bloody brilliant!" he spouts after blowing me up for the fifth time).

I hate the fact that everyone but me is good with him.

Every other Demoman, mostly on the enemy team, has what can only be described as skills. They litter the area with stickies to murder your ass before you walk out th...

In case you don't know, the Spore Creature Creator is out. I'm not going to talk about the details of this, so go here.

My brother got the free version, and wants to buy the full one. He thinks it's brilliant, even with so few parts, and I agree - it's damn flexible, and Pendact has some examples of the monstrosities he's created on his blog.

I reccomend everyone get this, even those who aren't into Spore or EA, simply to have a go. I'll post pictures up of my creations soon. Go to the Spo...

So, yeah, my last blog died. Simply because I forgot. I don't have time to mess around with stuff like that all the time.

If you're reading this, I got Scribefire for Firefox, and it's working. So now I can blog whenever I want, especially if I want to rant about something on the net or point you to something funny, and also to make it easier for me to blog. Anyone who has a blog and Firefox should try Scribefire. Damn useful.

So, back to the blog. I'll post mostly on gaming matters, stupi...
