Last week me and the boys and Esther, who has retired from having early mornings and so won’t be producing any more, talked about the Aurora Shootings (aka the “Batman Shootings”) and some of the issues that have come up re the interpretation as to what happened, who was really responsible and… Well, the “Stargate” connection is something you will just have to hear for yourself.
This week I’m going to talk about the Olympics. As I’ve not watched anything to do with the Olympics just yet I’m just going to say, if asked about the quality of the games, that I’m concerned about Bolivia’s performance thus far.
I’ve been told, post the segment, that the lights in question were flares. Make of that what you will.
Anyway, I never did announce the winner of the competition from a few weeks back. As we only had one entrant, the DVD of “The Claws of Axos” goes to Daniel Schealler (who should e-mail me his postal address)
Which brings me to my next (and final point). Back in January I talked about a conspiracy theory which alleges that “Doctor Who” is a vehicle for the Illuminati message. Aspen, the main proponent of this theory, has been taking me to task in the comments of that post which you may find interesting (or frustrating, or both).
Hello. Almost a week late with this update; I’ve been applying for pos-docs, writing a book proposal and replaying “Portal 2″ (and I also played through “Dear Esther,” which is definitely art but maybe not a game; tempted to writing something up on that if I get the time). Anyway, last week I talked about the call to reopen the investigation into the death of Yasser Arafat due to the presence of a radioactive isotype on his clothing.
