    I Punch First

    The night of the 22nd of May, I’d gone out with some friends in the evening, only had a couple drinks and got home early. I was in bed by 11pm. At just after 5 the next morning, I heard one of our cats jump down from my little son’s bed in his room right […]

    Hatshepsut

    Hatshepsut was pharaoh from 1479–1458 BCE during the 18th Dynasty of ancient Egypt and arguably the first great female ruler in recorded history. Though there were female rulers before Hatshepsut, it isn’t always entirely clear whether some ruled in their own right, whether they acted as co-regent with their father, husband or son or whether […]

    Strong, not skinny.

    This morning I woke up to see yet another woman being attacked with horrendous abuse and rape threats on Twitter. My first reaction was despair. “Not again. Will this never stop?” Before I made myself feel defeated by ignorant morons, I got down on my floor and did some push-ups. I ended up doing 100, […]

    Jocelyn Bell Burnell

    Thank you to everyone who voted for Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s discovery of pulsars in the Great British Innovation vote. She came #4. Amazing! Several weeks ago Roger Highfield from the London Science Museum got in touch with me to ask if I’d like to take part in the Great British Innovation vote. He sent me […]

    Finding The Positive

    There seems to be something very exciting in the zeitgeist at the moment. Lots of different people from different areas seem to be thinking the same things. People are tired of the “cynicism” “pessimism” “criticising” and instead are calling for more “creativity” “art” or simply asking others just to “do something“. 2013 is clearly about […]

    Translating Peter Rabbit (hieroglyph edition)

    Skip ahead to the translation here. I’ve added some notes about this to my Posterous I’ve been learning Egyptian hierogylphs for nearly a year now at the Egypt Exploration Society in London. So far I’ve only translated texts provided by my course tutor that have been either texts from monuments or specially written texts to […]

Brian on Heroes Unmasked

I forgot about this until Vinnie put it up on my Facebook Superwall. :)

Tory MP Steals Bandwidth Shock

I started following this yesterday, assuming that it would be very short-lived albeit hilarious… But it’s still happening, so figure I should let you know about it. A while ago a guy decided to test the macro function on his new camera by taking an extreme close-up of a pound coin. (click for larger) Fine. […]

House Keeping

Since 28 Weeks Later was released this week, my work on it has wound down. I’ve got a bit of time this morning feel it’s time to update my blog. If it looks all messed up here, I’m just playin’ around. ******* OK, I’ve gone 3 column K2. Nice… I’ve also made it mobile-compatible, though […]

I Heart Jeremy Paxman

My first job in television was in 1992. I was hired as a presenter on a teenage entertainment programme. I reviewed films, interviewed actors and pop stars and had loads of fun with Gareth. Within the first month or two of me being hired, I was interviewed by the Head of Marketing at the channel. […]

Wow. People Are Funny

Following on from my previous post… I just saw this funny video- “If Business Meetings Were Like Internet Comments”…

Wow. People Are Crap

As you know, I started doing the Sunshine website two years ago. My role was to be the eyes and ears of the film for the fans. I was on set every day writing about the filming process. When that was finished and it entered its long post-production stage, I continued to write on the […]

Global Warming Y2K Bug?!

Wow. If this is true this might be a really big deal: 1998 is no longer the hottest year of last century. Fram Daily Tech: While inspecting historical temperature graphs, Steve McIntyre, (climateaudit.org) noticed a strange discontinuity, or “jump” in many locations, all occurring around the time of January, 2000. These graphs were created by […]
