Much as I approve of

Much as I approve of Tim’s outrage at people insisting there is only one way to play the game, and ignoring his own (no doubt ironic) final normative statement, I have to say that I disagree with a lot of what he says.
Tim would be one of very […]

The push for promotion.
Today I was promoted. This good news was conveyed to me by the Big Boss in our department. I work with my back turned to the room and he padded up behind me just as I was looking at the Charlton Atheltic Women’s Footbal[…]

Adam Hart-Davies is not the first person you would expect to find on a sports blog. Unless you take recreational cycling in flurorescent shorts meant for someone twenty years your junior as a sport. Nevertheless, last night (late, post pub) there was[…]

I’ve read that the original story in early editions of The Sun said (allegedly, natch…) ‘Bonkers Bruno locked up’ but after complaints from mental health support groups changed it to ‘Sad Bruno in mental home’. The[…]

BrunoWatch Continues

BrunoWatch Continues: the Evening Standard‘s headline today is “TEN POLICEMEN RESTRAIN SAD BRUNO”. Now, come on lads, “sad” wasn’t actually the word you were looking for, was it? But of course it was – two da[…]

City were on the Telly
Read post

City were on the Telly. It’s a rare thing that my lot get shown live on the box (it’s happened I think five times ever) and it’s not something most Exeter fans relish. We have a proud tradition of failing to impress when the live TV[…]

  1. The prose in Sorcerer Of The Wildeeps uniquely blends high fantasy with Delany-esque afrofuturism. The focus on Demane's complex relationships,…
