BBC Three‘s Mighty Boosh is back for a new series soon. In a tv landscape of tired ideas rehashed by uninspired drones, the Mighty Boosh bothers to try something different and now the BBC is trying something different with the Mighty Boosh. The new series is available as a RealPlayer stream, free of charge, each episode in its entirety. Fantastic.
I’ve been a fan of these guys since their Radio 4 series; people describe it as silliness but that seems pejorative. I admit, though, the tv series isn’t for everyone. It’s not comedy-by-cringe, it’s pure fantasy. Two blokes go on impossible adventures and exchange some of the best dialogue to feature on the box.
Have a look, thanks to the BBC it’s free, so you’ve nowt to lose.
My first article for the open source software news website, Newsforge, was published today. In it, I describe some of things that we learnt in organising LugRadio Live 2005 and talk about my view that we need far more community-focused events in the open source world.
I’m particularly pleased to be on Newsforge as it’s one of the sites that I’ve been reading since I first became interested in Linux. Provided I find time, and make proposals they like, I hope to have a few more articles on there in the future.
The latest LugRadio was also published today. In it, we interview Sony’s Sarah Ewen about Linux on the Playstation, Edward Hervy of PiTiVi video editor renown and our conversation eventually descends into one of the most bizarre moments of LugRadio yet.
Ha, my mate James Belshaw has broken the world record for the longest kiss, with his girlfriend Sophia.
I knew that one of my mates would eventually gain international recognition for something or other
A journalist from Red Herring magazine contacted LugRadio, the other day, with a few questions about the commercialisation of podcasting.
I replied and part of what I said has been quoted in a story about the effect of iTunes’ podcasting support.
They call me “Mr Revell”
