MCM Comiccon Manchester

For those of us of a geeky nature, this weekend sees MCM Comiccon’s huge event taking place in Manchester! I am a huge fan of Conventions and Comiccons. I’ve met quite a few famous people at them, (I’m genuinely not bragging that I hang around with celebs in real life – I don’t, and I […]

Deck of Justice

For a big section of my early childhood I played card games. I would’t say I grew up playing card games, as regular readers will be aware I spent most of my childhood, from about age 10 onward, on my Spectrum. But the rest of my family loves card games, so we had loads of […]

Interview with Annabel Port

I was genuinely delighted when I read that Annabel Port’s book, Annabel vs the Internet, was being released after successfully being funded on Unbound. I stumbled across Adrift, a podcast she co-hosts with Geoff Lloyd, about 6 months ago. Adrift is basically a podcast for people who occasionally need advice with social situations, and who […]

Digitiser : The Show – Interview with Mr. Biffo!

If you were alive in the 80s, and you’re still alive today, the chances are you were also alive throughout the 90s. What an exciting time they were! Full of futuristic things like flying cars, teleporters and time travel. Who am I trying to kid?!? The 80s were obviously far better. I mean, for a […]

On Safari

Safari? Sa Goodie! Never really understood why, when Biggins shouted out “SAFARI!”, the audience retorted with “SAGOODY.” What was a Sagoody?” Maybe it was a jungle snake? On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day working hard at school. (Or […]
