Liberty City Sightseeing

This chap over on Flickr has gone through GTA 4 and all around real life NYC and set up a comparision stream of shots. Simply awesome dedication to go through the game and real life…
I’m currently spending far too much time playing too much GTA 4…

Hackney Marshes snowed under…

More like Hoth, phoned the Marshes office at 9.30 and they said matches were still on… Look closely you can see a goal post… ish… Good job we didn’t play as we only had 8 players this week…

New coins…

Like how these new coins all get made up into a shield or something…New coins

Bumblebee close up

Bumblebee close up, originally uploaded by markhassize11feet.

I bought another new transformer off ebay, this time Bumblebee. He’s too tricky to transform, and the robot mode is a bit of a cheat, as his chest bit doesn’t for any bit of his vehicle mode… Should’ve been a VW Beetle too…

Carlsberg don’t do litter…

I’m only really blogging about this because a few other people have and are linking to this photo. By far the most popular photo on my Flickr account… Did I spend it on booze? Yup, but not Carlsberg…

Bulkhead a little red…

Just got this fella off ebay. Autobot called Bulkhead (he’s a bit slow and stoopid) from the new animated series. Bit different to the oldTransformers a bit more Gorillazy and touchy feely, if you know what I mean…

Who knows how the chap in Hong Kong gets them before they come out though…

A Stormtrooper celebrates…

Star Wars and birthdays. Ever since I was a little kid unwrapping a Anakin Skywalker ghost figure and a chief chirpa from Tescos home and ware section right up to turning 31, Star Wars me and birthdays go together. This year I got an actual Stormtrooper helmet, not one of those cheap ones from the comic shop, but like a proper one. It’s just like the ones used in the films, my head is a little big and it kind of fits and I am a little short to be a stormtrooper, but i’ve wanted on of these since I was a little little kid. No doubt I’ll get tired of wearing it and taking ‘funny photos’ but for now…

Adidas Ad

Nice ad for adidas, that includes lots of things I like from shell toes to Liverpool FC, Oasis and old school animation…

Pump up the volume…

iplayer_logo.pngThe ads are now starting to grate a little (and it doesn’t really work for me due to my lack of broadband – thanks BT!!!), but have noticed that the BBC iPlayer let’s you crank up the volume to 11… Let’s rock! Hello Cleveland etc etc…

Sat a home waiting for BT again…

Currently sat at home waiting for a BT engineer to turn up and sort out my broadband… again. Since getting BT Broadband in October we’ve had loads of problems with it, BT Vision not working, an 8MB line coming in at 104kbps. All this lack of actual service is further compounded by their customer service. A call to phone them up normally results in a 40 minute wait and no real answers and a promise that someone will call you back in 24 hours – to their credit they normally do, but more often than not the call results in “I can’t do that, I’ll have to refer you to X who’ll call back in 24 hours… Grr….
