To celebrate the Olympic Games I've collected together a list of Olympic themed quotes by various commentators, competitors and others over the years.

A list of weird tricks (or 'Easter eggs' as they’re known) from around the web.
|Read on to discover 10 cool Easter Eggs from around the web.|
It turned out that I had transposed the ‘s’ and ‘p’ of blogspot and for some weird reason that takes you to a website all about Armageddon. When you consider that my blog often mentions my alien comedy 'How To Save The World' books, it makes it a bit of weird freaky coincidence that a misspelling takes you to a website about the end of the world.
Anyway, it got me thinking about other weird stuff on the internet and so I decided to write a post on weird little tricks (or Easter Eggs as they’re known) that you can find on the internet.

Some People Are Hard To Please
|Singing From The Grave|
by Anna Von Hausswolff
While I was browsing amazon one day I came across a very enthusiastic and positive review of an album which I love, ‘Singing From The Grave’ by Anna Von Hausswolff. The full review can be found here but it includes such quotes as:
‘I’m so passionate about this artist I’m having trouble describing all the aspects that make this one of my favourite records of all time.’
‘From the first track to the last ‘Singing From The Grave’ will captivate you, entrance you and take you to bliss.’
‘This album is all I can seem to listen to lately, I’m hooked on Anna Von Hausswolff like a drug.’

Following on from my earlier post featuring Charles Fudgemuffin iPod / iPhone wallpapers, I now also have a couple of netbook wallpapers (1024 x 600 resolution) available for download.
The first wallpaper is simply a memory aid to help readers remember my name. Charles Fudgemuffin … if you forget the name, just think of a muffin made of fudge. It also means you get to look at a muffin every time you log onto your netbook, which is always nice.

A few photos from my travels.
Like Eric (the main character in my alien comedy 'How To Save The World' books), I’m a big fan of travelling and therefore every winter for the last ten years I’ve gone backpacking around the world. On my travels I’ve encountered a few signs which have caught my attention and so I thought I would post photos of a few of them on my blog.
1) An Undercover Operation
The first photo is a photo I took while in Krakow a few years ago and it was taken outside the Secret Service Headquarters, handily signposted to ensure people can easily find it.

I have to say, maybe I’m missing something but it didn’t really appear to be that secret.
