Slightly Irritated Max

So to follow up my last post, I watched Mad Max and it's rubbish. He doesn't even get mad until the last twenty minutes of the film! And half of those twenty minutes consist of him driving round trying to find people to be mad at. Piffle.

In not-at-all related news, I'm currently reading David Mitchell's The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet. It's set in 1799, and there's an intimation at one point that one of the minor characters is a distant ancestor of Eiji Miyake, the protagonist of another one of Mitchell's books, number9dream. I love it when authors do that. (And yes, before you ask, I do read quite a lot of Stephen King. But not Michael Moorcock. I've never actually read any of his stuff. I guess I ought to at some point.)

That sure was a blog post!

Charidee, mate

I love charity shops. Today's purchases:

The Twilight Watch and The Last Watch, books three and four in Sergei Lukyanenko's Night Watch tetralogy (side note: according to Wikipedia, the first usage of "quadrilogy" dates from 1865) = £2.50 for the pair

Mad Max = 49p on video

Lastly, and most importantly, RollerCoaster Tycoon = £1.99. I actually saw this a few days ago, and figured it wouldn't work on my current PC (the box only specifies Windows 95 or 98, not XP). I decided to get it anyway, and it motherfucking works

Hells yes

One of my all-time favourite games, back with me at last

Charity shops, motherfuckerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

Duke Nukem Forever is out today. It's actually out. Fourteen years late.

I meant to go into town and have a look at it on shop shelves but I forgot. Nae matter.

'Course, the next question is "is it actually any good?"

Good news, everyone!

I no longer have the Bleach song stuck in my head!

Instead I have this.

Sha la la!
