Blame the lateness of todays Roast on my chronic need to go dancing. The rock-chick in me hasn’t been out to play in an embarrassingly long time and, fed up with hearing me say “I need to go dancing!” over and over at work, last night illyna took pity on me and we all went out for a night on the tiles. We bumped into the Boy Temp at the end of the evening, and he seemed a little surprised to see us in the particular venue (the Dungeon, an old favourite). To be honest, the surprise was two way as he likes Chico for Pete’s sake!
Anyway, a late night/early morning, a few glasses of alcohol, and lots of dancing, isn’t exactly conducive to early-morning posting. I’d apologize, but I had far too much fun to feel bad 😀
So without more ado, or further gilding the lily, I shall shut up and leave you with the things that have tickled my fancy this week on the Web.
The BBC tells us that a cloaking device is theoretically possible. Cool!
Good news UK Lost fans! And those who heard about season One, tried to watch the start of season Two last week, but are feeling all at sea… Channel 4 have the entire of the first season for download for free, and each episode from the second season will be available for 99p per episode. Looks like it is Windows only, which is a downside, but handy if you happen to miss a show and can’t be bothered to wait on repeats. Lost microsite where you can download episodes for free.
Kiefer Sutherland talks about plans for a “24” movie. Now, whilst none of us in the office are too sure how the concept of 24 will translate to a movie, this is pretty exciting news that it is actually happening.
illyna is continuing her work as a Minion, sending me this link about a guy who nearly got shot playing WoW. There are pictures, but it looks like he’s exceeded his bandwidth for now. Not surprising really considering the link is spreading round the Net rather rapidly. If you ever needed a reason NOT to have guns in the house, this is probably one of the better ones – not only are you putting yourself and your family at risk, but you’re also putting innocent neighbours and gamers at risk. Repeat after me: “Guns are not my friend, guns are bad, I shall not prance about in the bathroom pretending to be James Bond with a loaded .44 Magnum”…
Bryan has a nice thought provoking piece about how blogging can screw your employment chances. Worrying thought really – a quick vanity search didn’t reveal Bright Meadow links till about page four, and even then I stand by everything I say on this blog, but it does make you think. What kind of impression am I leaving with this site?
And to wrap up the weekend, one reason (not) to buy pirate DVDs. The linked to screenshots are hysterical!
