There has been an awful mistake.

Things that are good about the internet:

Google Cache!

Put simply; Google cache is great because if, for example, you have an excellent site exposing the lies and irresponsibility of a bunch of money grubbing charlatans - lets use in this case The Society of Homeopaths - that then gets shut down by the layers of these shameless conmen (The Society of Homeopaths), you can still read...

Upon his grandfather's death, the First Prince had declared himself in Mendicant Mourning, and ordered atmospheric rockets to be fired, forcing an artificial winter to fall over much of the Conquered Realms.

Black snow fell continuously for several weeks, destroying crops and killing livestock. Delegations and emissaries were sent, bearing tribute and fine gifts, but all were bared access to the prince, who cared...

wizzle:

It was good to meet you last night. I sincerely apologise for that awful music you found on my iPhone. I just have a weakness for certain pop punk occasionally. You weren't meant to see it; nobody was. It was my little secret.

What was that Iain M. Banks book you recommended? I can't remember the title.

Peace.

awesome pic

That is very likely. biggrin

I'd love to see a live volcano erupt (from a safe distance, naturally). I'm awestruck from mere video-footage of such grand, natural events, so to witness one in person must be one hell of an experience.

I've been spending a lot of time at work - whilst I'm not stabbing customers and hiding their lumpen carcasses in skips - thinking about how to do this entry.

The bare bones aren't terribly interesting. My brother and I walked from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland, crossing over the Alps, using a route that most people do in 14/13 days...

I didnt even get out and about since I posted that anyway. Turns out Im having much more fun on guitar hero.


Damn this habit.

iseult:

Thanks! I have never understood why people get so hung up on weight.

Congratulations on completing such a gruelling trek! The last time I climbed a mountain, it was just the one (Cader Idris) and I was ten years old, so I can't imagine what an epic, border-crosing hike such as yours was like. Oh, also honey is one of my very favourite foods and when I'm ailing for something, a teaspoonful of the 10+ Manuka variety every day sorts me out a treat.

Back from Switzerland!

I'll talk about it properly later, but first, FOOD.

I walk through a fine palace, through a succession of fabulous rooms. My clothes are cut from damask, gold threaded brocade, silk.

Paintings hang in airy galleries open to the high summer light, portraits of kings upon horse back, looking martial and fierce, or standing in ornamental gardens and arrayed in court finery.

Aristocratic families stand arranged in oils, gathered around some fine instrument at...

Well, the other day I saw probably the probably fucked-uppest thing the internets have to offer. It doesn't really compare with climbing Ben Nevis, though.

Inspellen's plan would succeed. There was no risk of failure there. He would achieve political influence through the subterfuge of the Oracle Project, exploiting the credulity of heads of state with his tales of High Science beyond the ken of Mortal Men.

What I tried to predict, what concerned me, were the consequences of Inspellen's success.

Inspellen would use the expertise of the...

The rest of the week I spent shuttling between The Administration and the sub levels Inspellen had commandeered. The Administration was aghast at the funds Inspellen was channelling into the project, and the other assets, people and equipment, that he was monopolising.

I preferred assuaging the fears of the Administration to assisting Inspellen in the underworld he commanded. The Administration worked out of airy, plaza...

Yeah Divided Kingdom is what I was going to mention. I can see some of him in your writing. There are differences, but you've definitely got a whiff on Thomson about you. He's a good novelist, very good.

The subterranean levels of the Institute building were legendary. All the things that were kept secret; that the administration had judged 'sensitive' (Amoral was a more accurate term) were housed here.

Somewhere down here, along with water cisterns that held entire lakes, and warehouses and storerooms that could hold twelve years of provisions or double as shelters; a nuclear reactor hummed away - making the Institute...

I dreamt I was on a ship on the sea at night.

It was a ferry, and it sat low in the water because it was too full of people and their cars and their luggage. People sat and crouched on the decks, building little demarcations of territory with bags and suitcases and coats.

Across the water I could see other ferries, all heading in...

AFRO SAMURAI!
I can't work out if I like it or not. It's very silly. It's a manga, but Samuel L Jackson is Afro-Samurai, and RZA from Wu-Tang does the music. Samuel L Jackson also voices someone called Ninja Ninja who, as far as I can tell, just hangs around smoking giant spliffs and being obnoxious.
To be honest, I have no idea what's going on for most of it, I know Afro is trying to avenge his father's death, and there are lots of references to 'number one' and 'number two' which make me giggle like a child. If I had watched it all in the right order, that would probably have helped.
