This is my online scrapbook for my favourite things from music and TV, to things that are on my mind and catch my eye.
Everything from Doctor Who, Black Books, Community, Sherlock to Frank Turner, Friendly Fires, Maximo Park and Muse .
Just as you grieve if a friend is killed, you should grieve if a fictional character is killed. You should care. If somebody dies and you just go get more popcorn, it’s a superficial experience isn’t it?
Christmas, for us, begins with Santa Claus. Now, my kids are ten and 13, but somehow they haven’t suspected the truth yet. No, in some enchanted extension of childhood innocence they still think it’s my wife Sue and I who fill their stockings with presents. Time and again I’ve tried to explain that it’s really a magic man called Santa, who lives at the North Pole, mass-producing pirate copies of commercial brands and distributing them worldwide for free, as a protest against capitalism. But they’re having none of it.
