David Thorne Strikes Again


David Thorne is an opinionated smart-arse. What’s more, you’d probably find it extremely hard to get along with him on a one-to-one level. Having said that, he is also ridiculously funny. Here’s a classic blog post titled ‘It’s like Twitter, except we charge people to use it.’

Have a look at his other posts on his blog.


No S#&t Sherlock


Had my birthday just the other day, didn’t I.

There’s a Sherlock Holmes vibe going ’round my house at the moment and we’re making our way through ACD’s back-catalogue at a rate. Hound of The Baskervilles and A Study in Scarlet down so far and The Sign of The Four up next.

There was some relevance to the birthday reference by the way… I went to see the London West-end production of  The Secret of Sherlock Holmes at the Duchess Theatre. Brilliant play with only two actors and an amazing set which, incidentally doesn’t change throughout the course of the play.

An excellent review of the play can be found here. If you’re in London, go see it.
