Semi-friends notice

Just a notice to say my LJ is friends only, if you want to be added then comment here - however I tend to only friend people I at least know of or share some interests with, because if anyone is here for fandom stuffs those posts are all public anyway for general enjoyment by anyone who strays here... This is also so my friends list doesn't get absurdly big, so hopefully any lack of me friending people won't offend anyone. :)

Still if you want to be added, then do say something and I'm not adverse to others friending me if they like.

Cambridge Virtual Ghost Tour

The other weekend I went on a punting/walking ghost tour in my city Cambridge UK and I've decided to post a virtual tour based on that, on the most suitable day of the year, Halloween. So join me on the inky black waters of the Cam and beyond...

Writer's Block: Killer Queen

What's your favorite Queen song, and why?

I Want To Break Free. It's a good and meaningful song + the video is fably strange and surreal too.

Female gaming tshirts (uk post)

Earlier in the week I got a bit incensed at a Tesco Clothing newsletter. Why? Because they had gaming tshirts advertised with the slogan "Boys to men...The whole family will love these" which I felt was rather thoughtless because the whole family can't enjoy considering they only stock boys/mens tshirts. Now I'm all for ignoring categories of clothing, but wearing men's tshirts can be tricky if they're tightfit and you have an ample busom so just buying the mens ones isn't exactly a great solution in all cases. More to the point I generally felt alienated by that slogan too, so I wrote to Tesco to complain that I felt it was excluding female gamers with that style of slogan when it could just as well have had a unisex and unoffensive slogan.

I actually got a fairly decent and quick reply, though the gist of which was that the slogn was because it was only men/boys tshirts and the lack fo female game tshirts was probably one of two things.

1) they didn't think they'd sell
2) the stockists don't make them

Regardless of which is the case I got told that they'd pass on my request to the buying team and that any other female gamers who wanted there to be more gaming tshirts could similarly contact Tesco's to say they would like to see them, as if there was enough demand proven then they might starting looking to stock them.

So if you're a female gamer in the UK, or know of one who might be interested in this, and you want more gaming tshirts at Tescos the email to politely poke them about this matter is: customer.service AT tesco.co.uk

Trollbridge pledge

Help fund a new Terry Pratchett-based film, Trollbridge. Currently the Australian (whoo!) production company is taking pledges to see if they can raise enough to make it a reality after 8 years trying.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/snowgumfilms/terry-pratchetts-troll-bridge

Currently they're at $34,691 pledged of $45,000 goal, with 61 days to go. So it's looking good but don't let that stop you and if you can't help fund directly you can still help greatly by spreading the word.

A couple things of interest

Annie Leibovitz’s Disney Dream Portrait Series - I love these, especially Whoopi Goldberg and Olivia Wilde's ones.
