Tomy transformer trainers

Hi there

Weird bit of news that I don't think anyone would have seen unless you are a school child or a teacher.

Some Schools have this thing called Espresso in school, its got video clips and a weekly news show. I was watching it with my class yesterday and was amazed to see the Tomy Transforming trainers on screen. They had images of a girl transforming Megatron.

Great to see transfomers but out to kids :)

Check out the clip....

I hate Ikea - Who posts a sofa?

Good start to the day. Went to the Bett Show in Olympia. Cool ICT computer show for schools. Lots of cool toys. See my other blog for details.

My problem today is Ikea. Today after many months Ikea where supposed to deliver the 2nd part to my sofa. We have had a number of delivery date problems, but finally it was here. I had my Dad ready to pop over to let the deliver people in one they rang him. (That's what they do)

And was really annoyed to discover that they had it sent by post. Parcel Force tried to deliver it not Ikea at all. Who posts a sofa???? I'll put a picture up tomorrow, when I collect it.

In sort don't use Ikea delivery service it is rubbish and their customer service people do not now whats going on.

Torchwood The End

Been busy over the Holiday season. Just had to say what a great ending to teh series of Torchwood.

Its had its ups and downs as a series, but ended on to real winners.

And the best bit the final 2 minutes of the last episode.

"What would have convinced you?"

"The right kind of doctor."

And then the glowing hand, the TARDIS. EXCELLENT.

It did so well to keep Doctor Who in it yet not mention it directly at any point. Great writing.

Check out the site.

Has anyone heard Battlestar by Five?

I know Five is not the greatest band in the world, but I recently heard one of their tracks and was quite impressed by the sample they used in it.

The Orginal BattleStar Galatica Theme Tune.

The Lyrics are quite cool as well. Check them out. http://artists.letssingit.com/five-lyrics-battlestar-9jw1bhv

Its Track 14 on the Invincible Album. Check it out its a laugh.

Stargate 200 Episode.

What a brillient, but silly idea. :)

Best bit by far is the farscape sketch, with the Stargate Actors playing the roles. Classic.

Check it out.
