Do you prefer short blog posts or long ones?

Just a question to the people reading this.. do you prefer reading something thats short or long?

Only reason I ask is that on my other blog, I don;t get to post often, same as on here, so I only write short paragraphs to sum up what I want to say. Do you like this approach or do you think I should try and make them longer?

Slam Dunk Festival 2010

Anyone going? I've just bought my ticket and can't wait :D It's going to be my first Slam Dunk ever festival .I have always been tempted to attend but the fact that it was always held up in Leeds, on a Sunday, was a bit of a pain for me because of trains and stuff. But this one also is going to be held at the University of Herefordshire on Saturday the 29th of May.

After seeing the first initial bands announced to play a few weeks backed, I almost got to excited for words. A Capdown reunion show? I'm there! And the RX Bandits as well?.. oh boy oh boy..

Then a few days ago, more bands were announced including the likes of Alkaline Trio and Against Me! We'll that sealed it for me, im so there!

Anyone else reading this going? Or been to the University? Is it easy to get to and more importantly, get back from? Who are you looking forward to seeing?

Excuse me, their appears to be John Cleese in my Fable III

Yay! It has been revealed that John Cleese, famous Monty Python member and comedy genius, wll be appearing in the new Fable game which comes out later this year.

He will be playing a butler to your character which takes over from the menu system of the last game. Sounds pretty cool to me. I'm not a great fan of having to stop a game just to change something in the menu's, it takes away from the immersion for me.

This is not the first time a famous actor has appeared in the Fable franchise. Steven Fry voiced a character in the last game and Johnathan Ross was rumored to be doing voice work for this game as well.

Something New!

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, my fellows geeks and nerds.

The time has come to unveil what I have been working these past few days. It is not complete yet (design wise) but I hope by giving you a sneak peak you can give me some tips and advice on how to make it better.

It is primarily a technology based blog but it also contains news on video games, movies and anything else that takes my fancy. I also post articles on how to do things with you computer that after a bit of research, the older generation know nothing about.

So feel free to have a look, tell me what you think (I know, the top banner is ugly.. but ill sort it.. eventually) and if you wish to help out then give me a shout!

Blink 182, Arcade Fire and.. My Chemical Romance for Reading/Leeds festival?

Fresh off the rumour mill, word has reached efestivals (which has been very reliable in the past) that the set of head liners for the main stage at this years Reading and Leeds festivals are, Blink 182, Arcade Fire and My Chemical Romance (but their not certain on this last one).

Personally, I think Blink 283 should be a fun band to see, not fussed about Arcade Fire and defiantly not a fan of MCR. Rumours the third slot are still rife though with Sound Garden being tipped to play amongst others.

If you have never been to Reading/Leeds festivals then I strongly urge you to go one year. If these 3 headliners don't tickle your fancy then don't worry, there's a host of bands across 6 stages for you to see. Here's hoping for Rancid to play the Lockup this year..
