ONM Remembered – #191

“Too much beer and drugs, man.” from The D.I.B.S. Productions DVD (Summer 200X)

Dusty keys

We got ourselves a big ol’ Bomberman update; still not much in the way of groundbreaking new content, but personally, I’m just looking to spruce up the old content as best I can. Well, I’ve had my new computer for about three weeks now. It took a while to settle in, no thanks to me […]

Back from the melting pot

Oh, hey. I went away to England for nine days to see my brother (who for those who like internet continuity, I mentioned was moving to England way back in early 2011). I thought of leaving a message, but I figure, who would notice? The blog’s been totally untouched for weeks at a time at […]

Vestigial arms, romance and anatomy

Went to see John Carter last night. Had no expectations, but definitely enjoyed myself – it’s not the far-out, totally alien sci-fi experience I’ve been interested in seeing on the big screen, but it’s a fun ol’ romp with some fantastic eye candy. I’d be lying if I said I completely understood the story, though. […]

“Who are you calling a you-you?”

I have been sleeping terribly these past few days, and feeling like rotten hell to boot. If there’s one upside from this, I’ve been having rather outlandish fanfiction-esque dreams relating to TV shows.

Snow him so well

So, Christmas has come and gone, December’s coming to a close, the new year’s approaching, and I’ve been so much of a self-absorbed shithead that I’ve barely even noticed. Story of my life! In my defence, Jingle All The Way was not shown once on television, so what’s the point of caring? Instead they showed […]

Snappy, happy monkey

I can owe a number of trivial audio-related parts of my life to the cassettes my dad would play while driving me to primary school years and years ago. Most importantly, it introduced me to The Goon Show, which probably led into my interest in radio production and absurdist humour. It introduced me to Flanders […]

Wandering the void between zero and infinity

You know you’re a miserable, directionless mess when completing another stage of Tetris Plus is the highlight of your day. I watched the entirety of Saber Marionette J back in July – that’s three series, about 57 episodes in total. It had its ups and downs (some long, drawn-out, poorly-paced downs towards the end), but […]

The years move faster than the days

Well, September was a bit of a tizzy. Harking up and down across the country to attend a course during the week and then being too exhausted during the weekend to do anything. That routine hasn’t exactly changed, it’s just I had the pleasure of getting a cold and spending the whole week in one […]

This must be the Site B laboratory.

Possibly due to his new-found love for OutRun 2, my brother has had arcades on the mind lately, and this morning we decided to head over to Yorkgate and check out its sorely neglected arcade and bingo hall. We weren’t expecting much at all; we were well-prepared to just mosey around it for two minutes […]

Just a collection of antiques and curios

My brother is moving away soonish (I’ll miss you!) and thus has burdened me with looking after his SNES and Dreamcast. It seems to be a trait in my family (well, probably just my father’s side) that we hate throwing out old rubbish; sometimes it is literally rubbish (why the hell do I still haven […]

Mask of the Phantom

Oh, the irony. The very day after I made explicit notes to myself to begin a regime of backing up my files more consistently and to make routine check-ups of my computer’s wellbeing, it gets a virus and I have to spend the whole day doing countless scans to remove it. Aren’t computers great? I’ll […]

Who wants to hear the nags of an indecisive webmaster?

Haven’t been up to much at all lately, I’m afraid. Life is mildly busy – mildly busy in the sense that I have stuff to do, even though said stuff is not exactly interesting, productive or even worth bothering with, but I guess just doing it is better than raising a stink about the issue. […]

R: The Flippered Duck

Random Hoo Haas has a second volume of unfinished works up. If anyone actually has the patience to finish reading any of them, let me know! Nothing terribly spectacular to talk about on the internet lately. Well, okay, I went to Portrush a couple of days ago to see a friend perform in a play; […]

You’re alive. Get to the next stage.

After over five weeks of avoiding responsibility, I finally made a characters and intro page for Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, as well as a comic comparison page which took longer than was necessary to make, but was a lot of fun. I hope reading about the show was close enough to the enjoyment I got from […]

With additional dialogue by William Shakespeare

I began watching the first series of Blackadder a week or so ago and finished the last episode tonight. Although I’m not as familiar with the series as I’d like to be, I positively love Blackadder Goes Forth, and I always love seeing how series can start off so humbly. The series truly shines with […]

No matter how I try, I can’t get you out of my mind

For the past few weeks I’ve been sorting through the music library on my computer, weeding out any songs I just don’t feel are necessary to hold onto and basically slimming it all down. Apparently I have just under 4000 songs in my music playlist, which actually isn’t as bad as it used to be, […]

Who wants to hear about mummers?

I’m back. I actually returned home yesterday but I’ve kind of been such a lazy unproductive ass for so long that I was truly unable to write anything. Despite the fact that I’d been keeping a crude journal of my days away, so I could have just copied something from it and through a few […]

“There’s no law against being a ninja!”

I’ve officially had this cold for over a week now and it still hasn’t fully cleared up. I hate the world! Also, just a head’s up, I’ll be away for a week starting from tomorrow. I’ve, uh, no idea where it is I’m going! It’s somewhere in the countryside, I guess, but that’s about as […]

If there’s a zombie apocolypse I am so taking a crate load of Kleenex

Y’know, when I started the WordPress one of my ideas was to have a stupid piece of doodling included in each entry, just to liven things up a little. If this is the kind of pleasant imagery I’m going to include, might be best if I didn’t. If you hadn’t guessed, I’ve got a cold […]
