Christmas under Fire: 1941

A brief but moving account of Britain’s wartime spirit over Christmas 1940, and a reminder of our own luck.

Tron: Travesty

As I endured this spectacle/debacle my wife updated her FB status with the claim that she was a “Tron widow”, the suggestion being that my time would have been far better spent back at the family home supping Campo Viejo.

Meeerrrrry Chriiiiiiiistmaaaaaaaaaaaaas!

…and a Happy New Year from everybody here at The Roomyverse. Personally, it’s been a great year for me, with various realisations coming together at work & home - just the open secret of simple happiness - with Sofia gaining confidence at school and Pablo already a contrary little man (“I will not have my porridge!” – “Oh, don’t have [...]

Time Machine

Only one week to go until Xmas! You excited/delirious/bloody-sick-of-it-all yet? Also, have you seen the investigative comic stylings of Darryl Cunningham? They’re mostly excellent with a little dash of brilliance.

Even Hitler Hates Bloody Ryanair

Kipling’s “If…” by Dennis Hopper

A reminder of how the late, great Dennis Hopper, as an actor and a screen prescence, could excel.

Old Man Roomy Remembers…Assange’s Apocalypse

It’s bin a while since I posted on these here pages. Back then I gave you the lowdown on young Tony Hadley’s burnin’ desire for porcine pleezure, and our own Head Chef’s obsession with the bovine, but the whole world’s changed since then, yessir. It’s been three years since those crazy sun’bitches dropped the big one, and I’m still steppin’ on [...]
