The Blackpool Tower "Experience"

Blackpool Tower Title

Sometimes, you just run out of excuses. It's a fact of life that you can only put of some things for so long, then you eventually have to suck it up and actually face the truth. As abhorrent as it may be to you, the inevitable will catch up with you; you're going to have to go to Blackpool.

Nintendo 3DS Review

3DS Banner

Okay... So, I love gaming, but one thing I'm a real sucker for is a new gaming platform. So I rounded up my old DS's and sold them, did a bit of freelance email server work, saved a few pennies and traded in a huge stockpile of junk and bought a 3DS.

I've been disparaging about Nintendo and their “rinse and repeat”, but that doesn't mean I'm not willing to try things out, it's always the quirky stuff I love and I'm sure you can find it.

So, how about a full review?

Ooglies CBBC Show Review  Banner

Welcome to the latest obsession of the Family_Furie. Ooglies is one of those fantastic shows that all the family can sit down together to watch, and enjoy thoroughly. All you need to do is leave all adult sensibilities in the cupboard under the stairs... Ooglies is puerile, childish, ridiculous, silly and utterly hilarious.

James May's Toy Stories

Who is James May? Well, he made his face known as one of the new presenters on the new format Top Gear - not a bad place to show you're cool with this millennium's light entertainment crowd. Other than that though, James May is just "a nice bloke". He's more than that though, he's a nice bloke with some good ideas of how things should be.
