Ducks are more sinister.


A question almost as old as time.

I will now present a bullet point list of the positive points of each show, and award 1 point for each bullet point I include.  So first it’s:


* Christina Hendricks
* The cool spaceship
* The humour
* The character development
* The awesome characters
* The reapers
* The war
* Inara
* River

The Shield:

I didn’t really like anything about it, so no dice.

So, by a score of 9 to 0, Firefly wins.

Ok, for my normal followers on this blog (gamers, geeks and great people of course) I should explain that the following is the one and only time I am ever likely to share something personal about me.  So here goes…

I think I have been asleep for a long time, and only this week have I woken up.

And no matter what happens, it feels…


Now, back to business, how fucking hard is the water temple level in Zelda: Occarina of Time?  Right? Right? You know what I mean?

Life is good.+


We’ve all been there.  3pm, just finished a mamoth session of Zelda:Occarina of Time, your beer’s done, the twiglets have been exhausted.

What do you do?  What are you gonnna do?

Go out to the local garage to buy a boost?  No, you’re not 15 anymore, and the… well, the stuff you did in your youth, is behind you.

No, you go to your kitchen to make a vegetarian burger; the biggest PHHHattttest Veggie burger this side of Falkirk.


A burger bun
1 leaf of Lettuce (no more)
1 jar of crazy relish (only to be purchased from Larry’s Relish store in Falkirks Milne Street)
1 Quorn burger
6 Onion Rings
4 Rashers of Real bacon (Not veggie it has to be real meat)

Cooking time 20 minutes.

When you’re done, head back to the living room.  Eat the burger.  Feel good. Head to bed. Sleep. Get back up. Go for a run. Meet some friends for lunch. Play Tennis. Have some beer and dinner with Friends. Go home. Put on Zelda, Play Zelda.

And the beat goes on…

Lots of my readers stop me and the street and say:

‘Hey, when you gonna write about the N64’

‘Leave me alone weirdo’ is my normal reply.  Well no more, for I will write about the N64 today.

I recently got my old N64 back up and running and here are my findings:

It’s awesome.

4 words for you:

Zelda  Mario  Goldeneye & Perfect Dark

… Ok that’s 5 words, so what, point is, it was a cool console.  and I for one am very pleased to own one.

If you don’t own one feel free to hang your head in shame…
