Chuckle-Bits Radio: Hotline Miami A+ Speed Run



Those who watched my Metal Gear Rising gameplay recording test earlier this year will know that I've had problems using Nvidia's Shadow Play software that came with our GTX 750 Ti. This also affected a load of commentary videos Stevie Grant and I had recorded during his last visit, rendering them practically useless.

Well today we've decided to revive one of them with a hi-larious commentary track. Which video, I hear you ask? Why it's Stevie Grant's Hotline Miami A+ Speed Run of course. Enjoy!

Soci of Metro - 200 Pages




It doesn't seem all that long ago that I was talking about my novel "Soci of Metro" and how I'd rewritten 150 pages. Now I'm happy to say that I've reached 200.

I suppose it doesn't really mean all that much -- 198 pages would've taken almost the same amount of work, give or take a few hours -- but 200 sounds like a big number.

It is a big number.

Chuckle-Bits Radio: Episode 14 -Barely Legal



Chuckle-Bits Radio is back with Episode 14: Barely Legal. Please don't ask me why it's called that.

Chuckle-Bits Radio: Episode 14 -Barely Legal (Official Site)


It's been a little while since we've put out an episode of Chuckle-Bits Radio. As you'll tell, Episode 14 was actually recorded a couple of months ago. And I'm sorry for that, things got in the way -- stupid life things -- and we just couldn't get it out on time.

But here's to the future -- the Chuckle-Bits future -- where Stevie and I deliver a hearty few hours of fun, once every fortnight.


...Stop looking so sceptical.

EveningEmma: Kirby Quilt



There's a young lady that lives in my flat, and I don't know why. Her name is Emma, and she has made a lovely Kirby quilt. You can see the above image in full on her blog, EveningEmma.

I love Kirby, you love Kirby, everyone loves Kirby, including Emma, who has spent many, many hours stitching together the top of her latest and greatest quilt. The eagle-eyed amongst you have probably already noticed that this isn't technically a quilt, but if you ignore the thread-laden edges and pretend there's some lovely wadding underneath, it's basically a quilt. And it's a big one too -- big enough to go over a double bed.

I've already mentioned the quilt top on Twitter and Tumblr, but it's so vibrant, and so fun that I want to make sure that everyone that reads my blog sees it.

And remember, Emma's taking commissions: click here to find out more.
