  • The Great Firewall of Australia?

    Under the guise of won’t-somebody-think-of-the-kids, the Australian Government is pushing ahead with plans to put in ISP-level filters that block “illegal content” which you can’t opt out of. In the grand scheme of not living in a marginal electorate, my vote counts for diddly-squat, but this is not something I would’ve voted for. It would […]

  • PSP Game Reviews – Patapon, Loco Roco & Lumines II

    Patapon – it’s a reasonably simple idea executed brilliantly: your button keys correspond to different drums, and combos timed to 4-beats-to-the-bar is like issuing a command.

    Earth from Above: The Big Picture Blog – you know the drill; gorgeous, stunning photos I’d pay good money for etc etc. Go already!

  • Movie Review: The Mummy 3

    The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor – There’s only so many times you can kill the same bad guy, right? Which is why Rick and Evie are now All Grown Up and settled in Oxfordshire, England, following World War II (where their exploits for the British Government have set them up for the life […]
