Update Archive

I try to only keep the latest update in each section up on the main page to keep things relatively neat. I thought I’d throw the older updates onto a page for posterity… or maybe just because I need more content.


2020 05 19 » CD Station

[ New additions! ] :: The CD stacks are growing in this here quarantine situation. Bandcamp had another wave of waiving its revenue share recently so I had to scoop up a few gems I had in my wishlist.


2019 02 12 » Coding Quarter

[ Revamping CD Station ] :: This was a chore, but I managed to automate a significant chunk of it. I documented the process (mainly so I’d have more articles in this section!)


2019 09 18 » PLAYLIST PORTAL

The next monthly mixtape is out for September. Artists I’ve had on rotation recently include Drab Majesty, Front 242, GFOTY, and more.


2019 09 13 » CD STATION

For now a CD collection log. Charli XCX’s new album ‘Charli’ drops today, and I got her CD in the post alongside a couple of Orgy maxi singles.


2019 09 09 » FUNCTION JUNCTION

A bit of a throwback – recounting the first metal gig I ever went to, Children of Bodom with Napalm Death and Insomnium.


2019 08 23 » PLAYLIST PORTAL

The first of (hopefully) many monthly music tapes. Check out what I’ve been listening to heavily this past month – featuring music from Orgy, Charli XCX, Revolting Cocks, and more.


2019 05 30 » PLAYSTATION PLAZA

The first game review is up, and it’s for murder mystery-turned-batshit supernatural adventure Fahrenheit. Those across the pond may know this one as Indigo Prophecy instead.


2019 05 08 » KAMUROCHO HILLS

Marking the launch of the Yakuza hub, for my favourite game series! No rhymes or alliteration for this section name. Shameful, I know.


2019 05 05 » PLAYLIST PORTAL

A new playlist has been added – this one’s called Arcade. Punchy music that makes me think of warehouses full of broken arcade machines.


2019 04 20 » FUNCTION JUNCTION

I head to a grungy club beneath some railway arches in Leeds to go see Manila Luzon, fresh out of Drag Race All Stars 4.


2019 04 15 » FUNCTION JUNCTION

I venture to the capital to go see Oomph! perform their first UK show ever. Despite the general crowd vibes feeling like that of a Tumblr convention, they were fucking great.


2019 03 13 » CD STATION

Another new section is launched! In an effort to convince myself that “it’s not hoarding, it’s collecting” I’ve logged all the CDs I have.


2019 03 13 » Coding Quarter

A stupid customer care case at work inspired this article, and this section in general. Join me on my quest to find the fastest, most efficient way to handle photos based on their EXIF data to save the client having to click the ‘rotate’ button.


2019 03 04 » MAGAZINE MAYHEM

Today we lost a legend, Keith Flint. He takes the cover of this issue of Kerrang! magazine, dated March 1997, as The Prodigy get ready to drop The Fat of the Land.


2019 02 23 » Function Junction

This time I’m off to see Dance With The Dead, one of these new retrowave bands. Let me summarise the set with these powerful words: EBM Animals as Leaders.


2019 02 19 » Playlist Portal

Plague (noun) - A pestilence, affliction, or calamity on a large scale, especially when regarded as sent by God. Now a playlist!


2019 02 12 » Function Junction

I re-ignited an old love for death metal when I went to see Polish death metal legends Decapitated, fresh off having their kidnapping-and-rape charges dropped. If it turns out these guys were guilty, we’ll wipe this entry off and pretend the gig never happened.


2019 02 05 » Magazine Mayhem

A masterpiece unveiled! This issue of PC Zone, dated September 1999, details the release of System Shock 2 as well as other mint games that are also hanging around.


2019 02 03 » Function Junction

Birmingham again, this time to see VNV Nation. An honest to God beautiful show.


2019 01 31 » Function Junction

Not quite as physically exhausting as last night, I went to see Mr Graves again. It was fucking brilliant.


2019 01 30 » Function Junction

Famous Monsters is one of my favourite albums of all time. I got to experience Misfits’ lead singer at the time, Michale Graves, belt out a few bangers from it while big hulking guys threw me around like an empty beer can. It was great!


2019 01 27 » PlayStation Plaza

New video game sector! This one’s for my PlayStation 2 games. Currently just a log, I hope to expand it further with game reviews and stuff. At some point. I swear 95% of this site is me just saying “I’ll put more here later!”


2019 01 24 » Function Junction

I make my way to Manchester to see Drag Race Season 10 girls Kameron Michaels and Blair St Clair, before camping out in a train station for the night. Ain’t much more to add than that.


2019 01 21 » Function Junction

Before I wrote this post, I had never been to Birmingham before. Now I can say that I have been. How fucking exciting is my life? You don’t need to tell me. I can already read the expression on your face. How can I see your face? That’s not for you to worry about.

Quite easily the most visually stunning show I’ve ever seen, I went to see Swedish metallers Avatar.


2019 01 13 » Magazine Mayhem

Garbage are doing promotion for their new album Version 2.0. They take the cover of this issue of Kerrang! magazine, dated April 1998. Also featuring prime cuts from Fear Factory, Therapy?, Soulfly, and Pitchshifter.


2019 01 12 » Function Junction

I make my way to see Enter Shikari. There’s not much else to say. I’ve never seen so many greasy scene kids in my life.


2019 01 06 » Playlist Portal

Post-surgical limbo wrapped up into a playlist – Latency.


2019 01 06 » The Godhead Merch Shed

To celebrate Jason Charles Miller’s birthday (…a day late) I’ve launched the Godhead Merch Shed, a collection of CDs, shirts, and other fun stuff I’ve collected from one of the most underrated industrial rock bands of all time.


2019 01 01 » Playlist Portal

Inspired by films revolving around human experimentation, I’ve thrown together a much longer playlist. This one’s called Analgesia.

And happy new year, I guess.


2018 12 08 » Magazine Mayhem

Skin from Skunk Anansie graces the cover of this issue of Kerrang! magazine, dated September 1996, as they get ready to release Stoosh. This one also features content from Placebo, Nine Inch Nails, and Korn.
