Fortnotes 14

[Being the fourteenth in a fortnightly series of brain dumps: what I’m working on, wondering and worrying about.] A busy fortnight. As usual. Now that the Kaiser Chiefs album has been released, I continue to be excited about the analysis the Rev Dan Catt is doing with it. Keeping half an eye on things, but […]

Fortnotes 13

[Being the lucky thirteenth in a fortnightly series of brain dumps: what I’m working on, wondering and worrying about.] I can finally reveal the super secret project I’ve been getting increasingly excited about in these fortnotes for the past few weeks.

We were there to help Bertrum Thumbcat (the ringleader of the polydactyl cats in the current Cravendale campaign) make some YouTube videos in which he […]

Fortnotes the seventh

[Being the seventh in a fortnightly series of brain dumps: what I’m working on, wondering and worrying about.] The past couple of weeks have largely been about cats with thumbs for me. If you’ve bumped into me and I’ve appeared a bit distracted, it’s probably because I’ve been thinking about polydactyl cats taking over the […]
