I went to see Battles a couple of weeks back. I already wrote about it the first time I saw them, so I won’t go on and on about it. Full reviews of the gig by Last.fm users are here and here. In my view, this performance was even better than the one at Glasgow. […]
Spot the difference. Pitpass: Honda to test three hopefuls Autosport: Honda to give test to GP2 trio Formula1.com: Honda to test young GP2 drivers ITV-F1: Honda to test Conway at Barcelona Oh yeah, ITV. And what about the other two? Oh wait, I forgot. They don’t count because they’re not British. It makes me sick!
So I thought when I started reading this article. Turns out they were talking about the Ming dynasty.
A few weeks ago I blogged about a test that purported to tell you whether you are “right brained” or “left brained”. I have just spotted an update to this on the excellent Freakonomics blog. The smart thing is that they’ve actually done a rough and ready study of the results. In my original post […]
Some bloggers are in a flap at the moment because Google has seemingly manually downgraded the PageRank of some websites. The reason appears to be that the websites in question sell paid links. Some of the websites in question are pretty big. Washington Post, Engadget, Weblog Tools Collection, Joystiq, Problogger. This blog also sells text […]
And other questions about Scottish Roundup This week Scottish Roundup has come in for criticism from Slutty McWhore, who has basically accused the website of being sexist. There were other comments on last week’s roundup, which was written by Anne McLaughlin (aka Indygal). The Devil’s Kitchen added his thoughts on his blog. The other main […]
Over the past couple of days there have been rumours that McLaren’s explanation for the sudden loss of drive in Lewis Hamilton’s car is not true. Seemingly, Lewis Hamilton actually let his finger slip on the steering wheel. Apparently he hit the ‘start’ button, which forced Hamilton into rebooting the system, a process which took […]
A full race review will come later. But I have to talk about the stewards’ investigation because it is so pressing. I was hoping — as was everyone else who loves sport — that the World Championship would be decided on the track. I was hoping that there would be no irregularities found after the […]
For me, the worst aspect of this Formula 1 season has been the hopelessly biased media reporting. I have railed against the British media’s love affair with Lewis Hamilton many times. But it is worth pointing out that, if anything, the Spanish media are probably even worse when it comes to Fernando Alonso. Let us […]
From the excellent Chequered Flag podcast. At that point [when I signed the contract] McLaren was one of my favourite teams from the past, in the history of Formula 1. At that point. From the past. History. Do you think perhaps Fernando Alonso doesn’t like McLaren any more? Okay, this is hardly a revelation. But […]
