App Review – A Charlie Brown Christmas [iPad]

I am a big fan of Charlie Brown and his seasonal specials and so when I heard there was a new app based on the Charlie Brown Christmas Special, I just had to buy it and share the experience with my daughter. This is my short review and I really enjoyed my time with this app – so this why I made this video.

Prog Review 28: Yes – Live at the Hammersmith Apollo 17-11-11

And so it came to pass that I was to break my 20-year drought of not going to Yes concerts on a pure whim. It was a long journey from east to west, but we arrived in good time only to have our concert-going experience spoilt by three arseholes in front of us at the queue at the box office. C’est la vie!

So what do I think? Well you’ll have to watch the video to find out!!!

Holy F*ck!

I haven’t been paying attention to my website stats of late and I just checked the download figures for last month and during October 2011 my website shifted a ball-breaking 295Gb (yes, gigabytes) of data – mainly the audio and video files that I have created. This is a personal best. I am flabbergasted…and slightly scared…

I’ve had enough time to cogitate and ruminate over the worthiness of the new Pink Floyd “Discovery” box set. The bottom line is: is this any better than than the “Oh, By The Way” set released a couple of years back? The answer to that is simple: no.
