This is the first post of my new blog where I’m going to self-indulgently talk about stuff I like, be it retro computer games, technology, a wide variety of underground UK music and politics. I used to run a music blog five years ago, before this medium became a global phenomenon and every single newspaper and corporation jumped on it. The blogs I love and admire are those that brim with enthusiasm, such as the never less than excellent Boing Boing, with its cogent broadsides against DRM and the stupidity of anti terrorism legislation that stops people from taking photos of UK landmarks – and at the same time posting much more whimsical articles on “steampunk” kettles and the like.

Its that fantastic variety of amusing, provocative and downright perverse interests that I like to read, and hopefully people will find something of interest here too.
