Hello! My name is Jamie and I live in Scotland. I like to play video games, read books, take photos, make coffee and squee over adorable puppies on the internet. This site is probably NSFW.

The Well of Lost Plots

  • Just read a Facebook post about someone whose husband had lost their iPhone and were looking for it’s return. They’d put it into “Lost mode” and put another number up on the screen via Find My iPhone. They finished the post by saying it wasn’t the phone they wanted so much as the photos it contained. 

    So you could work out how to set up Find My iPhone but not how to back up to iCloud every night? Seriously?

  • This is one of the weirder rumours I’ve had in recent months. What reason would Microsoft have to buy a company that’s only really made one game (and I’m pretty sure it’s still technically in beta) for $2BILLION? Even Bungie didn’t sell for that much and look at their history.

    Also the guy at Mojang ditched a version of Minecraft for VR when Facebook bought Oculus, will he really sell to Microsoft who aren’t much of a better company? 

    It’s an odd one for sure.

  • An entire civilization circling the globe endlessly on a train split into a caste system. What could possibly go wrong?

  • This past week I’ve been to the cinema twice, which I think is more times than I’ve been to the cinema all year. The only other film I think I’ve seen this year in the cinema was Amazing Spider-Man 2.

    On Wednesday I watched Godzilla which isn’t my usual type of film but the trailers made it look really good. The trailers lied.

    For a start there was never any appearance by anything other than Godzilla, yet within ten minutes two random other monsters show up. There were some good scenes and I liked the cinematography overall but I think it was mostly just a bit too silly. And don’t even get me started on Fatzilla.

    Then on Friday I went to see X-Men: Days of Future Past which was fantastic barring a few small niggles. My prime niggle was the devastation of the First Class supporting cast. Banshee, Azazel, Angel, Whirlwind Guy. All either dead or MIA. Alex Summers shows up in one scene and then vanishes.

    I’m curious which cast will be the next movies primary cast. I’d assume the younger ones but I would be surprised if they got in new actors again.

  • Love this look, looks like it’s a much more stripped back suit than the Dark Knight films. It’s still gonna be interesting to see him go toe-to-toe with Supes.

  • This seems to me as not only ridiculous and a complete waste of Police money and time but as something with sinister undertones.

  • To anyone who laughs at Conchita Wurst or considers her a freak or even doesn’t understand her I say to you this: stop looking at what she is, stop trying to define her according to your way of life. Instead look at how she acts and see how much this means to her.

    Last night my faith in humanity was restored.

  • Cute video and I could see this being a cool use for Glass but they need to make them cheaper. Especially now everyone knows it costs them $80 to make something they’re selling for $1500.
