Breaking Bad... Pixel's balls over how we haven't posted.

Well hello there, it's been a while hasn't it? Yes, it has, too long in fact. But let's not get on at me for being shit let's just carry on as if nothing happened.

Recently, my carrying on as if nothing has happened has included watching two entire seasons of a US drama called Breaking Bad. Notice how I cleverly worked that into the title there. Anyway, what I wanted to say is that it's really fucking excellent. Obviously I'm going to write a little about it so read on for my thoughts and that.

Apologetic ramblings

Well guys, I am truly sorry for the downtime. What can I say, it's christmas! also fuck you.

Obviously we should have had the second podcast out about 5 to 6 years ago, however I suck and left it on my hard drive in Dundee, and it's tricky to upload something 560 miles away. This podcast does appear to have been doomed from the start, as the first recording of it is broken and lost in the mists of time due to my terrible internet and Beth, our new possible co-host, being drunk. However, have no fear, the podcast should rear its ugly tumescent head again shortly, but no sooner than the 8th of January.

Happy new year all of you, and have fun.

Speaking of albums: Tron Legacy Score.

So I had a day off work this past Friday and I thought, wouldn't it be nice to watch a film with my father. So a film I watched.  Oh how I watched, seriously, I watched the fuck out of Monsters and I will give a full run down of it in the podcast, but that isn't why I'm making this post. Oh no.  There's a different, more Tron related story to tell.
