Cucumber

Now, I’m not really one for watching Television. In fact, other than BBC News, and the odd episode from some sort of comedy show, I don’t watch TV. It’s Netflix or nothing, for me, at the moment. Now, that’s great. But you need variety, and when I saw that there was a few programmes coming out, written by Russell T. Davies, I was on board. I knew I had to watch as many as I could. As it happens, I ended up watching Cucumber AND Banana, which are two of the three programmes that he had written which were being shown. Needless to say, I had to review them. First up, Cucumber.

MGMT – Kids

So, you may have missed it, but over the last few months, there have been a few references to the fact that I am due to become a father – in fact, it’s much more imminent now. At some point within the next 12 days, I will have a son, whom we will be calling Henry. With that in mind, I decided to go for a child-centric review, tonight.

Things We Want To See More Of: Community Based Building Games

Okay, so, let’s start off with one of the things that I especially want to see more of – truth be told, I’ve not spoken to the others. The “we” is more that the list is our list of things, but each thing on it may be something that just the writer wants to see… So, when Benny writes something about wanting to see more of Piers, be aware that he is alone in this.

Before I make the “continue reading” section, I’ll explain what I mean by “community based building games”. Full explanation below, but, in short, it would be a multi player game where you build not only your settlement, but everything to do with the community which inhabits it is created by the gamer/s, and everyone fills a role inside that community.

New Series: Things We Want To See More Of…

Okay, so, every so often, you may have noticed that we’ll mention a new series of things that we want to write about, and sometimes, they go well, and sometimes, they don’t. This time, I’m not going to set a time-scale, or a date, but rather, leave it as open ended as possible.

This particular series is one that we will be using to talk about something that we don’t see an awful lot of, but want to see more of – or maybe, there is a lot of it, and we want more because it’s so awesome. The point is, we’ll talk about how awesome it is, and why we need more.

Simple as that.

Angels & Demons (2009)

Angels & Demons is the film sequel to 2006’s The Da Vinci Code, both written by Dan Brown. The book for The Da Vinci Code is pretty good, and the film is pretty good too. Sure, there’s better out there, but you’d be hard pressed to find a film that couldn’t be bested by something. So, with that in mind, is Angels & Demons a better film?

New Site Theme And TGTRS Chat

Hey there, reader! We’ve had a bit of a play around with how things look over here on TGTRS, and we’ve decided to go a brand new look – as any of you who visit us regularly will see, it’s a lot brighter than the last one. We figured, heck, we’ve been dark and gloomy for a while now, and in reality, 2015 is probably the year when everything is going to change – I mean, bloody hell, one of us will have a child born in a few months! What’s more cheerful than that, eh?

So, we hope you like the new look – if not, by all means, comment or email and let us know! We’ll listen, and try to take your comments on board.

And, in case you didn’t see it over there on the right hand side of the screen (—-> that way —->), and up near the top, we have managed to get a chat feature – if anyone wants to talk about stuff, by all means, hop on, have a chat, it’ll be great. No guarantee that one of us will be online, but if you want to chat, just pop us an email and we’ll arrange a chat for you – doesn’t matter what topic, either.

And, if the window on the right isn’t your cup of tea, go to the proper page, right here – we won’t bite!
