Hello there

Had a good Christmas? I did!

What better way to come back after a break with some drunk people shouting at a bus, eh?

Merry Christmas

As you may have noticed, today is the 25th of December. This happens to be the day that Jesus was born. So in celebration, a fat man in a red suit comes down our chimneys and places expensive goods under prosthetic trees in our front rooms. Festive.

On a serious note, I'd like to thank everybody who has read my blog, watched my videos and left comments over the past year.

I hope Santa brought you all something nice.

Merry Christmas to all fellow head-doctors.

The Self Preservation Building Society

I used to love this old NatWest ad that was on the telly a few years ago.

Take a gander at it for yourselves.

Send Me Your Poop

In a new part of Bocketroom, I'll be asking viewers to send in their photos, drawings and pieces of text to be showcased in an episode.

If you will like to contribute to Bocketroom, please send your poop to

Please send me your poop, and have a Merry Christmas.

Wiik Competition

I haven't been paying attention to other blogs recently, so I was really shocked to see that the Chinese have ripped off the Wii.

There it is, in all it's horror, compared to the fantastic Wii.

As far as I know, it includes twelve rip-off games such as "Happy Tennis" and "Free Craps".

I personally don't think it is a dent on the Wii, a great console with online capabilities and a range of great games.

That's about it. Have this Vii ad.

And have a look on the electronics in the Vii's casing.

PS. I forgot to mention it's made by Chintendo.

I Miss the Nineties

I miss music like this.

I miss disgusting things like this.

I miss weird things like this.

I miss interviews like this.

Overall, I miss The Word

More bluescreenies

I got some of DaveSpencer's videos together, and mashed them together in this bluescreen video.

Notice my new YouTube account.

Buswatching is the new trainspotting

I take the bus into Newcastle almost every weekend, taking the bus from my tiny village of Red Row, all the way to Haymarket Bus Station. DaveSpencer32, who is 55, has spent a considerate amount of time visiting major cities around the world filming buses.

Including Newcastle, here.

Microwaves + Flammable Items = YouTube Material

I like microwaves. They heat things, like Rustlers burgers, and soup. They're good. They're also good when fireworks, wool and other things are placed in them, proven in these videos.

California vs Washington Half-Time Show

Old as the hills yet still so incredibly awesome.

A must-see for Nintendo fans.

iPhone :: Second Opinion

Today I went to Newcastle, visiting every Carphone Warehouse and O2 store, setting my face as the wallpaper on every iPhone on display. During this bit of tom-foolery, I had a little play with the devices, and have to correct my previous post.

So, here we go.


I'll split this into separate sections, one for every part of the iPhone*. Let's start off with


Apple state they have put a full internet browser on the iPhone. And they're correct. I checked my blog on the iPhone, and I could not believe that Apple put my crappy little blog onto the iPhone. The text looked sleek and I loved how you could just zoom into paragraphs by tapping. I seriously would want the iPhone for Safari alone.


The iPhones on display didn't have the Mail function, but a nice O2 worker had one in his pocket and gave me a little demo on how his iPhone works well with Gmail. His sister was in Spain on holiday and took a photo of her daughter with a BlackBerry and emailed it over to him. The simplicity was remarkable.


"The iPhone is the best iPod ever", Apple claims. I'm not too sure about that. It's a little bit fiddly at the beginning, and it's still fiddly at the end. Yes, it works, but I had about ten people asking me how I got Green Day on it. Even when I showed them how to do it, nobody could grasp it that well. Instead of dials and arrows, Apple could have at least labeled them "Volume" and "Back".


I have seen a countless number of blogs slamming the iPhone's keyboard, and how they can't touch the correct keys, and how the spell check doesn't help. Well, they're wrong. I might be saying this because I have really thin fingers, but I typed with ease. And when I (deliberately) mis-spelled a word, the spell check gave me the correct word straight away. The same goes for NOTES and a part of SAFARI.


And finally, I love the YouTube app. To test it, I thought no better video than Star Wars Kid (I feel some people may be upset with this decision). I loved the full screen option and the quality was excellent (in YouTube terms)


I am now Stephen Fry.
