VSX, A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist: Starbuck Powersurge - a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of Viper Squad Ten, a long-disbanded group of stranded timetravelling troubadours, formed to help finance repairs to their time-machine.

Co incidents
Starbuck [19:44] Comments: 5 []
Talking of coincidence, I'm obviously feeling low level guilt about neglecting my online duties of late. Ideas spill from my brimming head and are lost in the mists of memory, one taut timeline amongst many stretched to breaking point.

I dreamt last night about third daughter. I can't recall what it was now, but no doubt I was checking her blog to see how life was shaping up, something I should be doing for her and for many others. So much must be happening in others' lives, so much to care about. I wish someone would invent Really Simple Syndication. Others' lives might not even be accessible now. So much has been happening in my own life, so much to share from my new life - from Starkid's life.

And today, by another coincidence, the morning after the dream, threed contacted me through Flickr to comment on a photo of Starkid.

I know that coincidence doesn't mean anything, I know that its just the human mind that makes it appear more than it should be, I know that our reality is purely a mental construct, that the present is not even something that is happening but is actually something that has happened and is then reflected upon, I know all that...

... but its still great fun!

More precognonsense

Further to THAT, I've managed to precog another high profile death - Arthur C Clarke. Sort of. Well, more of a postcog really, with a bit of paracog as well.

I was lieing in the Bath Friday morning, unaware of the passing of the classic sf author. I was thinking about a piece of music, tying to work out where it was from. I thought it was from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Until I realised that it was from Superman.

A bit later I was watching the film version of the Magic Roundabout, where another piece from the 2001 soundtrack was used. "Hmmm, coincidence", I thought absently.

Late that night I was flicking channels and happened across Damages, just as the Blue Danube was being played. "Wooh" I thought, inaccurately.

The next day I learned the truth.

Clarke was dead. And I was suffering from coincidence and extrapolation

That new Madonna single, right? 4 Minutes To Save The World - the one that sounds a bit like The Final Countdown? Or was it Brian May's theme to Star Fleet#? Or does that sound like The Feeling's Thought It Was Over (as I always think to myself upon hearing it)?

Whatever, that Madonna single. The "yeah" in it. It absolutely rips off the "yeah" in Dieticians Featuring Fat's breakthrough track Fat City Arizona, both in tone and word-for-word.

I want royalties.

# Having just revisited Mr Anita Dobson's classic theme tune, evidently not. Check it out puppet fans...

Hmmm, so much for the big VSX comeback.

Short, is time, yes.

So here's one that I made earlier. Or rather, here's one that MIA Co-editor Stu made earlier. Or even, here's something he emailed me.

Just as well, since I can't see myself getting round to my annual music & film review for 2007, considering my 2006 review only came out in September, and since I've not really absorbed much music or film in 2007 anyway.


Here's Stu:

Best singles

Manic Street Preachers - Your love alone is not enough (I'm sorry but I really like this song)

Andrew Thompson - What's up

Klaxons - Golden Skans

Scroobius pip - Thou shalt always kill

Best albums - in order at least to begin with


Arcade Fire


Queens of the Stone Age

Everything Jesu has done this year (and ever forever)

Band of Horses

65 days of static


Bloc Party


Also rans

Nine Inch Nails, Broken Family Band, Klaxons

Best album that I had never heard until this year (so to me it is an album of the year, yeah?)

Slint Spiderland

Most rubbishly disappointing album of the year


(Chemical Brothers came close)

Best gig

The whole Barcelona "experience", Tool at Brixton, Battles at Koko

Most irritating musical person of the year

Jack Penate

I hope that you've found that edifying.

Robot Wars on Terror
Starbuck [22:21] Comments: 2 []
You may have seen news fluttering across the news wire recently that Professor Noel Sharkey PhD DSc FIEE FBCS CITP FRIN FRSA, Professor of Arificial Intelligence and Robotics, Professor of Public Engagement and EPSRC Senior Media Fellow at the University of Sheffield had been publicising his concerns that terrorists might start using robots to carry out their atrocities.

Well he would say that. The man has a vested interest - Prof S was a judge on the UK version of Robot Wars, for chrissakes. He's obviously missing his fix of BREAK FLUID!!!!!!

Still looking for Osama Bin Laden? Send in Sir Killalot! Need reinforcements against "Al-Qaeda In Iraq"? Send in Hypnodisc, send in Razer, Cassius & Chaos 2.

Tony Blair was right. The world truly has changed. Where's Rex Garrard when you need him?
