S04e04 bonus content:
I wonder if the actual, genuine bonus content on other things like DVDs comprises stuff they forgot to do:
#1: I forgot to mention the two conflicting headlines on pages one and two of this week’s MCV. On the front page: ‘Retail is accelerating its own demise with price war’; on page two: ‘Retail hails 360 price slash‘. So the industry is sick of shops discounting stuff, but is fucking over the moon when cheaper stuff sells more. I should have asked Gibbo for her news views.
#2: My Advances Wars murder joke. Ste said I’m not allowed to say it, but this is the Internet and anything goes. That said, it isn’t really a joke, more of an observation. And that is: I wonder what Advance Wars unit the (alleged) murderer liked the most? It would have to be one which has a long movement range, but can only attack those immediately next to it. With hindsight, I’m not sure it would have been that funny.
#3: I also meant to mention my ongoing correspondence with Deb, from the Open Pandora project. I meant to mention this in the slim hope that, as an actual listener, she’ll take pity on my grovelling and send me an Open Pandora for free.
#4: I didn’t take any pictures of Gibbo! That would have got us a few more hits, that’s for sure.
Apologies, listener! I blame the lack of all of the above failing to appear in the Internet’s favourite FM-broadcast European radio broadcast in London on the stress of “driving” the “desk”. It was pretty terrifying, and genuinely made my wrists tingle.
