This Glaswegian Life #6

Posted by Philip on June 17th, 2009 — 12:20am

From, it’s This Glaswegian Life. I’m Philip Chan. Our story today, which has the theme “Post-Exam Life” is in four acts.

Act 1: The Doctor Who Joke,
Act 2: The Doctor Who Exhibition,
Act 3: Livin’ La Vida Loca,
Act 4: Summer.

Act 1: The Doctor Who Joke

John: “Knock-knock.”
Phil: “Who’s there?”
John: “Doctor Who.”

True story.

Act 2: The Doctor Who Exhibition*


Act 3: Livin’ La Vida Loca


Act 4: Summer

Summer time in Glasgow is always a rare treat.

And this is why we must make the most of it.

Sometimes it’s a bit of a sausage-fest…

And sometimes it’s a bit of a banana show…**

But as always, we’re keeping it real.

Enjoy your summer.

It’s going to be a good one.

See you outside.

* The Doctor Who Exhibition is currently on at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery.
** The West End Festival is currently on in Glasgow.
*** And thanks to Jonny “Banana Show” Baillie for photographic and maraca shaking contributions.

Charlie Brooker’s Gameswipe Confirmed

Posted by Philip on May 8th, 2009 — 6:20pm

I know Michael is a fan of Charlton at least. And when he tweeted this:

“Worst videogame bosses ever? Email yr suggestions to gameswipe at zeppotron dot com. Make what you will of that email address.”

I was excited. I’m not sure if people realise he used to be a games journalist way back when. Anyway, this blog post is awfully short, so I’m going to draw your attention to a few things: Screenwipe, Newswipe, and videoGaiden (the best videogames TV programme to have appeared on British television thus far; made in Glasgow nonetheless). Oh, and Twitter, which I’ve suddenly become interested in again.
