Interests
It’s been a while since I’ve felt I could recommend any output from the BBC, given their tendency to axe shows that I’m enjoying (EG: Ripper Street), but a rather splendid series has just concluded that fans of magic and period drama will no doubt enjoy as much as I did.

Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell is set during the Napoleonic era and follows the titular characters as they attempt, and succeed, in the resurrection of English magic. With arguments over what kind of magic is “respectable”, deals with rogue fairies, murder, conspiracy, and the employment of magic in the fight against the French; these two magicians gradually become enemies.
It’s apparently adapted from a book, but I don’t have time to read much fiction these days, so its appearance was a surprise and delight!
I shall say no more. To do so would spoil it. It’s well worth a watch.

Say JJ, have you heard of Freedom Planet? It's right up the alley for Sonic the Hedgehog fans, considering it was made BY Sonic the Hedgehog fans...

It's old school Sega run and sparkle. Fast paced platforming fun. Check it out if you want.

I think I saw that pop up on Steam. Certainly feels like a classic, 90s platformer, but it's just not grabbng me in the same way.

Say, jack; do some of your characters speak with a Cockney, or Scouse accent; or do they mostly speak with a stylish, or idiosyncratic inflection?

Pretty sure none of them are Cockney or Scouse.

Figured. Was going to offer you to come over to the States, but things are just as bad here.
Whelp! Only one option left now. Time to start our own sovereign nation.

Viva Pipingrad.

Eh, we do similar crap here in the U.S. except we have less parties too choose from. There's plenty of ways we could do voting better, but I get the sense the system is purposely rigged too divide and conquer the electorate. We haven't had real choice in this country for a long time and I'm sure those in power like it that way.

Also, I'm not jaded at all..

Question to Chloe Skunk: Knowing of what you are capable of, and through all you have gone through, from transformations to bursting out of your clothes (many in a state of ecstasy) have you ever skunked anybody, be it intuitionally (scare of an attacker) or just by plain accident?
