Twitter Sexuality Tester

Sunday, July 19, 2009 7:20 4 Comments

Now I have up to now been relatively assured of my own heterosexuality. I’m married, I have children, and I find women attractive in a way that I don’t find men. These to me are all indicators of heterosexuality (not the same thing as ‘predictors of beaconicity’, for any local government types). And as I [...]

Twitter Addict

Monday, July 13, 2009 7:20 1 Comment

I came across one of those quizzes (created by The Oatmeal) designed to tell me how addicted to twitter I am. I’m not quite sure why the number of people who are following me, as opposed to the number of people I follow, is deemed to be a good indicator of this, although I maybe [...]

Walshy’s Facebook Meme

Friday, March 27, 2009 7:20 1 Comment

I don’t tend to do ‘notes’ on Facebook, on the basis that it’s hard enough to find something to post about here every day and spending the time doing that, without ending up doing the same on Facebook as well.
However, I was tagged in a Facebook meme and so feel kinda obliged to give it [...]

Test Your Personality

Sunday, March 22, 2009 9:30 3 Comments

I found Steve over at Very True Things had taken a personality test to see what sort of person he was.
So natch, I had to give it a go. I failed, I only got 37%, so apparently I’ve not got a personality. Naah, just joshing chief, apparently I’m an ENTP, a visionary, although it [...]

Chartroose’s Favourite Bands Meme (S to Z)

Friday, March 13, 2009 16:59 2 Comments

As per usual, and as I probably should have mentioned before, these selections of bands are based very much on the mood I happen to be in at the time. Asking the same question at a different time might well get an entirely different response.
But on we must go, from S through to Z.
S is [...]

Chartroose’s Favourite Bands Meme (J to R)

Saturday, March 7, 2009 0:07 4 Comments

Right, now where was I. Oh yes, my favourite bands.
J is For …
Apparently, Johnny Hates Jazz. Meanwhile, Jack dislikes both Jazz and Johnny Hates Jazz. There’s a few in here which have some resonance for me: when you’re in the need of a Metal Meltdown, Judas Priest can supply that for you: Elton John [...]

…by the corrupt few

Friday, March 6, 2009 0:45 3 Comments

Thanks to Paul Canning for this one. This is my band Anchisaurus’s debut album “…by the corrupt few”. I think it looks very much like I’m a heavy metal/thrash outfit. But then again, Anchisaurus. Maybe prog metal.

Here’s your route to Top Of The Pops:

Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random” or click The first random wikipedia [...]

Chartroose’s Favourite Bands Meme (A to I)

Monday, March 2, 2009 0:12 2 Comments

I noticed the other day that Chartroose had started doing a favourite bands meme. The idea is fairly simple: to go through the alphabet and pick out my favourite band beginning with that relevant letter. (Although The Langster has picked up on it now as well)
A is for …
It boiled down to a choice of [...]

Values Meme

Wednesday, January 21, 2009 10:07 No Comments

I have been tagged by Chartroose, who has taken part in a values meme, in which I get described as “appealingly strange, or strangely appealing”. Sounds good enough to me…
Basically, I have to say six things I support, six things I don’t support, and six bloggers to share this with.
So here goes.
Six Values That Are [...]
