Goodbye longest day,...

... Hellooooooooooo dark nights! Time to produce some ugly Drum & Bass whilst I'm in a suitably dark mood.

FINAL EXAMS today! French to round them all off, then a month of........ Nothing, pretty much. Then a bit of holiday, then another month of doing nothing. Woo. Fingers crossed that I do well enough to get into my Uni... I'm really nervous about it =X

Critique of latest Coldplay album (X&Y) and background on band

... For those who don't know, check out this MusicRemedy article on Coldplay and their latest album, X&Y. Very interesting reading, even for someone who's followed them with interest since their first EPs. :)

Quote of the day...

"I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world because they'd never expect it."


- from a friend in Holland.

How backward can you get????

Yes, this deserves four (or more) question marks, and maybe a few exclamation marks to boot... I can't believe that some Americans STILL believe that the theory of Evolution is blasphemous! Perhaps they're jealous because they were left out of the evolutionary ladder... For the full article, see The (ever-omniscient... Oh I'm sorry, was that blasphemous?) Register: US scientists launch evolution fight-back.

Excellent - FACTUAL - reporting (just like the theory of Evolution is). Also note the differing contexts of the word 'evolution', and how it applies to a scientific context.

Oh, and feel free to pass the link on to anybody who believes that Creationism is the be-all and end-all of how we all came about, and then slap them round the face with a wet trout. For me. Thanks.

It's great to be a BritBlogger

Hopefully in the coming few days or so, I'll get approved for listing on the BritBlog: 'The British Bloggers Directory' site - a brilliant directory of British bloggers both in this country and overseas. Aww, it's like we're one big, multinational little family.

And hopefully, I'll be able to wear this on my blog with pride:

This is a BritBlog!

BritBlog: English Blog

:D

PH: Right Side of Brain Test!

PH: Right Side of Brain Test!

The idea is to find the man's head in the picture of coffee beans. I found it in under 5 seconds, so I'm pretty pleased about that. How long will it take you? It's not as easy as it sounds ;)

An Effective Solution for Spam

An Effective Solution for Spam? This guy thinks so, and he's written a huge page all about it. It looks hopeful in my opinion... 3D captchas: the way of the future! \o/

Sorry bout that, had to go all geek for a mo. (Newsgroups article which originally referenced this URL can be found here: http://groups-beta.google.com/group/news.admin.net-abuse.email/browse_thread/thread/70491413c44eb749?hl=en.)

Wow, a filmgoer I am once more

I've been to see loads of films recently! Some of the more memorable ones include The Hitchiker's Guide To The Galaxy and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith (oh yes!). Two very enjoyable films the both of them, and Episode III... Wow. Such an incredible conclusion to the prequel trilogy, the film was nothing short of breathtaking, right from the incredibly-detailed intro sequence. I can't (won't!) say any more of it, except for the simple fact that you MUST go and see it, it makes everything make sense.

Currently watching Elektra, and I'm enjoying it for the Kung Fu, but it's not a shade on Episode III. ;)
