Strange Fruit, Xbox 360′s and Free Advertising


It’s amazing how things can cheer you up.

I was feeling a little run down after work, the financial implications of paying for my holiday hit me hard. In other words, my credit card bill came today.

One Word. Ouch.

Happily, I was cheered up when I got home to work, when I realised that I wasn’t the only financially irresponsible member of the household. Oh no. As well as myself, Aled spunked away £300 on this little beauty.


Yes, an Xbox 360. Arguably Microsoft’s finest hour.

It’s 2nd hand, but with his 300 notes he got Pro Evolution Soccer 6 (wahey!), Gears of War (meh) and A faceless Need for Speed game (boo!).

Frankly, whilst it will be fun, I’m happy with my Wii. It just seems more fun, rather than serious Microsoft. I’m still loving Mario Strikers Charged Football, even after a month since I purchased it. It’s been ages since a game has laste me that long.

Incidentally, I haven’t actually played it yet, but what I’m looking forward to is for Al to get it online, so I can answer two questions.

  • Was I really that good at Street Fighter 2, after beating every single male between the ages of 13 and 30 living in a 10 mile radius of Colwyn Bay?
  • Was I really that good at Sensible Soccer, after beating every single male between the ages of 13 and 30 living in a 10 mile radius of Colwyn Bay?

These questions must be answered.

Another question that must be answered is an obscure one. Basically, my dad brought home some fruit, and we had no idea what it was. I’d appreciate it if any of you could identify it, as you’re far more culinary diverse than I’ll ever be.


Any ideas to this rather phallic item?

Finally, Exoclick (they have a banner up there, so I thought I’d give them a shout out in a post) informed me recently that they are offering free $10 worth of advertising if you sign up and reply to this thread on Digital Point Forums. By the looks of it, Exoclick is like Adsense, so if you’ve been banned from there, or are just wanting more people to read your blog, why not give them a go? I’ve got the free advertising, but probably won’t put more adverts on my blog, plus I don’t thing google’d be too happy.

Right, I must go and wash off the whore dirt from my body. I feel so dirty with all those affiliate links!
