Not actually Bratfud Frost is laying over the Bradford hills like a crisp, armoured shiver blanket so I thought balls to it... I'll knock out another video version of a podcast episode (lazily put together this time on the native Windows video maker with a slideshow and audio). I've done this, as much as anything … Continue reading Bored, cold, so… YouTube Channel?
Elric of Melniboné Part one Loz is back with me at Derry and Tom's as we tackle the 1972 novel Elric of Melniboné. We have a few drinks and muse upon Elric's early pre-wanderer, Stormbringerless years on the Ruby Throne of Imrryr. We also ponder the news of a possible Elric TV show and attempt … Continue reading Episode 03 – Elric of Melniboné Part one

It's a bit of … Continue reading Moorcock Shelfies 03 – @lapsedgamer

I've been looking forward to hearing the new(ish), live recording by Michael Moorcock & The Deep … Continue reading My Experiences in the Third World War
Tonight is our third night of geeky, nerdy shenanigans with a few hundred like-minded folks. This is the 7th (or maybe 8th) time we've attended and, as I get older, three day benders do get slightly harder but the pay-off is the opportunity to meet some of our idols. For many in attendance this may … Continue reading BitR at SFW Weekender X
