It's All Gone Quiet....

"Said Roobarb. Too quiet, said Custard"

Yep, it's all gone a bit quiet on the blogging front all round since things have gone back to some semblance of normality.

For me, I just haven't had anything to say that I thought warranted writing since the new year. I suppose I *could* tell you about the Playstation 3 I got for Christmas from Lisa which is bloody brilliant. I haven't played it anywhere near as much as I thought I would, although I expect this to change after I finish my 'hit the decks' competition entry, but what I have played has been fantastic. I've now got it hooked up via HDMI cable and it looks awesome on the Samsung LCD on the wall. Call Of Duty 4 is like watching CNN, Fifa 08 similarly is like watching Sky Sports and Motorstorm is just wow! The most played game since I finished Guitar Hero 3 (on easy) is Heavenly Sword and this one has really got me hooked. Brilliant gameplay, graphics and storyline. Perhaps a tad short as I'm nearly finished it now but brilliant nonetheless. Playing online is no slouch either and I've managed a few COD4 battles and a couple of Fifa 08 games against Scott.

For the record, the scores against Scott were:

Man Utd (Scott) 3 - 1 Arsenal (me)
LA Galaxy (Scott) 1 - 0 Chelsea (me) * note: I hit the post about 50 times in this game, no way I deserved to lose!! ;)

I may well keep a record of these games as I expect the tide to turn once I've played it a few times ;)

The rest of my spare time in the last 2 weeks has been spent working on a 'megamix' for a competition which needs to be 15 minutes long by the 27th Jan (I've done 4½ mins in 2 weeks so far so need to get a move on)! Similar in vein to the YouTube Hit The Decks videos top right, it's a mash-up of old school rave classics with audio samples galore chucked over the top. Believe me when I say it's much harder than I thought it would be! Once the compo is over and the results announced (keep your fingers crossed for me :) ) I'll be putting it up for download. I'm quite pleased with it so far and sure it stands a good chance (not least because I don't think there'll be that many entries!).

Anyway, that's been me for the last couple of weeks ,let's see what the next lot bring :)

Yo Yo Yo - You Are The Weakest Link Dude!!

Not a big fan of The Weakest Link or Ann Robinson, but just came across this on YouTube from the American Rap Celebrity episode and just found it so funny.

Can't believe that B-Real (one half of Cypress Hill) got 3 times 4 wrong, doh!

Breaking News...

Yep, in a compromise with the 70's & 80's night, karaoke returns to it's Thursday night slot from next week with the 70's & 80's tunes filling in breaks and the background at a guess.

You heard it here first!!* *(unless you were up the hotel tonight and heard Andy announce it too ;) )
