I went along with the family to I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue – live at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall, a massive place – we were at the back, thus the photos, but at least we could hear! It was previously (when we last saw it, the last time it was in Nottingham, it was the much smaller and cosy Theatre Royal).
Was great fun – lots of typical Clue humour, along with some repeated jokes (funnily enough from the last time they were in Nottingham, ho ho), but great to hear a lot of original material. Jack Dee is my preferred new presenter – dead pan, much like Humphrey Lyttelton was. Sadly, I still think it suffers with his loss. Graeme Garden is my favourite of the panel, but all brought their own great humour.
In any case, it was especially silly having Kazoos and participating in utterly impossible songs for the panel to guess, then having an encore performance with We’ll Meet Again, as you can see below. If you get a chance, and like a whole lot of double-entendre (and a lot of not-double-entendre unlike the radio!), puns, horrible and great singing and sketches, improvisation and jokes, it certainly is worthwhile to go see 🙂 Try and catch a performance if you can 😀

Akira Kurosawa‘s article is a great satirical piece at Uncyclopedia. There are real gems on that site from time to time!
Robert Fearon (his blog, Mersey Remakes) has done a second follow up to War Twat (which I enjoyed), called Squid Yes, Not So Octopus: Squid Harder (which is actually a sequel of SYNSO: Squid Yes, Not So Octopus). I played the beta form and managed 1 minute just about…the full complete (with more stuff!) one should be out v. soon.
A shooter where it starts fast and only gets faster, with options for auto shoot and turning speeds which is much appreciated. The music is funky, the graphics awesome and gorgeous and overwhelming, subliminal messages just as cool as War Twat, top notch short fun 🙂
Screenshots do not justify it but here is one to tempt you:
Just a note: doesn’t do badly at full screen on a widescreen monitor, but sometimes windowed is easier to control – since up/down movement then is the same speed as left/right movement. 😀

The brilliant Korean animation by SamBakZa, started in 2003, has been recently finished. It’s a beautifully animated love story, with no dialogue – just set to music (Korean pop music usually). A nice mix of funny and sadness, and love of course (and is insanely cute and charming). With the work that was put into it (and watching them all at once shows how much the animator has improved), with such a long term project, shows he had a lot of love making it 🙂
For something so ambitious released for free I’m glad he finished it too. Worth watching them all, most easily done in English here – it will hardly take half an hour, so go watch!
