To begin with, a little follow up to last week's top videogame characters post. I received a lot of emails about other suggestions (newsflash guys thats what the comments are for, starting a discussion, so lets use them) And I would be remiss if I didn't mention some of the better suggestions: captain flacon, serious sam and Luigi could easily have made my list on another day.

So how am I doing then? I don't write about myself as much as I used to, and I haven't posted anything for a while now. The short answer is that things are... interesting, hectic and complicated as always. I could just say everything's great, and for the most part that would be true, but let's face it that would be a far less interesting way to start a blog entry.
This week I have jetted off to Boston randomly to see my brother, and in the process of doing so I came upon three major epiphanies: weekend vacations are a life saver; the apple air is freakishly thin, like annorexic underwear model thin, and just as sexy; and guitar hero is quite possibly the best videogame i've played in a long time for many many reasons, a few of which I will now briefly touch on.
The game itself i fun and addictive, with varying levels of challenge. The soundtrack is great, particularly this last one, which is chock full of classic rock tunes, and slipknot. The guitar peripheral that comes with the game is very well made, it feels right, and is much better than any of the similar guitar controllers that have been made in the past, on top of which they are heavily customisable. Soon you will be able to buy different shape guitars, change faceplates, add stickers and whatnot. So let's all grab an axe and rock out, I have a feeling this will be the bane of my revision period.

In other news, it's amazing how every time i get dinner with someone it becomes such a hot topic, even when I don't mention it on this journal, I still get people finding out somehow through a series of chinese whispers and suddenly everyone wants the primo details. Clearly word gets around, and there's only one or two people I tell so it's not hard to guess who's using me as gossip fodder.
So yes I do have plans for tomorrow night but it's nothing to get too excited about just yet, let's just see how it goes. I know I've probably said this far too many times this term but she has potential ;)

Happy Valentine's day,
Be well.
