“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

The quest of villain character from video game to become a good-guy. The animation is candy-licious and the story is sweet. Enjoyable, and just the thing for a Saturday morning in bed with a bowl of sugary cereal. Yes, even … Continue reading
Dead cop gets back on the job. Whole lot of zzz and I really can’t make out a thing that Jeff Bridges is saying. Okay, I can, I just don’t want to as he speaks throughout the whole movie as … Continue reading
Larry David of Curb My Enthusiasm and Seinfeld stars in this comedy about shareholding employee of a high-tech startup who is fired and loses his stake; shortly before the company’s portfolio skyrockets. Larry David is funny in this, but a … Continue reading
This is a first. It is the first time I’ve used a tag called ‘#Romance’. Still I did see The Time Traveller’s Wife (2009) by myself, which is either sad or embarrassing, depending on your point of view. About Time … Continue reading
Frankenweenie (2012) is Tim Burton’s comedy-horror themed family animation. It is a tribute to early classics like Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935) and famous movie monsters like Godzilla, Mothra, King Kong and even the Gremlins. In the movie, a … Continue reading
3D: Remember the other dumb trends that seems to have started with a wedge of lime in your beer bottle and then Apple sticking an “i” in front of everything? (Imagine a time when you will be able to step … Continue reading
Okay, so only a few devs are still coding Forth, but I remember Leo Brodie’s excellent book and the fun cartoons inside, like this one: They probably still have a few copies in Simon Fraser University (Burnaby, BC, Canada), which … Continue reading
More tech-rage exorcised- Buzzwords: “There’s a disconnect between…”, the word “disconnect” used in that way makes my hackles rise up to a point near the ceiling. Development Methodologies: At uni it was SSADM (the fascist) and SSM (the hippy). Then … Continue reading
Some vileness you may be subjected to in the engineering and IT industry: Fake Flat Management Structures: Ever heard someone, usually an HR twit, say something along the lines that “we are all equal in this company.” That is just … Continue reading
.tek Technobilge: Stuff You Should Hate @BBC @Guardian @Reddedit and Other Buggers Who Are Not Employing Me
A few months ago, I was supposed to write for, and revive, the defunct Guardian‘s Technobile rantless rant column. Obviously this never happened, because here I am still barely eking out a living in any way I can. Sob. But … Continue reading
I love this clip-
I got nothing else to share today, just too busy. Enjoy.
You have got to question the wisdom of buying perfume from a bloke who’s famous for shoes. Maybe I should squeeze my soggy gym trainers into a fancy bottle.
I woke up far too early today to take mum to the hospital. When we got there the appointment had been changed- “Very sorry, your doctor should have told you.” No ####, Sherlock. We drove home afterwards and, as I … Continue reading
I love products like this- they give me the chance to vent my innate misanthropy in a constructive manner. Just a little context- Boots is probably the most reputable and popular high street pharmacists in the UK. Recently they’ve started … Continue reading
Dad looked over my newspaper tech column yesterday and said in a slightly shaky voice- “You know, they’re going to think you’re a geek!” He had JUST realised his son was a geek. You’d have thought the books, comics, games, … Continue reading
So now that we’re well into the latest Hollywood TV season it’s time for a round-up. In case you’ve been dead for the last few years, I’ve added a quick summary of what the shows are about so you can … Continue reading
Lie– Seasickness isn’t that bad. Truth– Yes it is, I failed the RYA Dayskipper Practical due to projectile vomiting. It’s very, very horrible and may take years to improve. When my uncle joined the merchant marines as a teen, it … Continue reading
My 2008 April Fool’s joke, posted on the entrance of my apartment building in Vancouver (and yes, I did spell “pertaining” wrong): Other random, completely unrelated wisdom: Monetize your misfortunes. That’s what I’m attempting to do right now. While all … Continue reading
Switzerland is all not all chocolate and cuckoo clocks. Swiss cops have guns and absolutely no sense of humour when responding to sarcasm from brown teenage punks. Yet another narrowly avoided shooting. Good old Interrailing.
Never go to a party that you can’t leave without relying on someone else to take you home. Parties are more fun when you know that you really don’t have to be there if you don’t want to be. Besides, … Continue reading
