This year’s poster for the Oscars is simply stunning in all its Deco glamour.
I’ve ordered a large one.

Massive tossers

“Sent from my iPhone.”

[ie: I’ve got an iPhone – envy me for I am rich enough to own a black shiny thing that you don’t have]

“Sent from my Blackberry”

[ie: I’ve got a Blackberry – envy me for I own a fruit with magickal powers of instante messaging. Quake before me oh serf.]

“I got my iPad in LA when they first came out and I’ve used it every day without fail ever since. ”

[ie: I’m a massive tosser who went to America to buy an Expensive Shiny Thing and then smuggled it through customs to avoid paying the duty]

Update: Apple asked for help by workers ‘poisoned’ whilst making touch screens.

… praise for the exquisite Sherlock.

I especially like the theme from Bond composer David Arnold.  It’s so evocative of all those 1960s spy and action dramas – especially Randall & Hopkirk.  The titles are beautifully conceived too. Unashamedly of today but with sepia references to Conan Doyle’s Victorian London,  multi-layered clues and mysterious suspense.  The driving, relentless pace and water droplet causing resolution at the end is brilliant.
More Sherlock is on the way later in the year;  can’t wait.

Sometimes the BBC is perfect.

The Queen’s looking a bit rough at the moment.
Must be all the strain of organising The Wedding.
