Apparently sleeping around will save humanity

The Metro ran a report today trying to tell us that sleeping with one partner will make the population 100% female. What bullshit.
To prevent this nonsense is to sleep around. Firstly, if all future babies will be female anyway, what's the point? And secondly, sleeping around is considered not good anyway due to STI's which we are all told to protect ourselves against. STI's are not a great thing to have and sleeping around will soon raise the risk of getting one and everyone will die out from them anyway. But if you want to believe this story then go ahead, but you've only got yourself to blame.

What? I've been working?

So I've made a start on all but one of my assignments (which will be shaping out to be a feature, hopefully on Viva City and SXSW). My essay, about the differences between print and broadcast media in the UK in terms of their roles during an election period is currently 28 words long and I am proud of it. That'll do. My news report is awaiting quotes, I'll post up when done and I'm recording an interview in a little while about the SU getting facelifted so that should be good. I've got two exams coming up in shorthand and media studies and am working on TWO film projects! Much fun.

Enjoyed Heroes last night, Matt and Sylar storyline is getting better and Matt is proving himself as being a decent character. He should have a face-off with Sylar when he gets his body back. Noah Bennet can referee. Now that'll be something worth watching, it would be brilliant!

Aside from that, Viva City are at The Cluny on Thursday before they disappear to America for SXSW, I'm trying to get an interview set up with them, that'll get posted. Next Thursday it's Radio 1's In New Music We Trust with Zane Lowe and The Futureheads. This will be live on Radio 1 so listen out for me! After that, The 'Heads hit the road to promote new album The Chaos out on NUL Records on April 26th. Then they are back in Newcastle on May 30th fo Evolution Festival alongside The Horrors, Calvin Harris and Paolo Nutini. Tickets are available now and are £17.50 for a day pass or £25 for a weekend pass.

New Firefox released, let's you change themes easy and a nice choice.
LOST was on Friday, very confusing. It's still a bit WTF.
Heroes tonight, looking forward to that. Hope Sylar is very much in it.

Bye for now.

Once upon a time in Texas... [Spoiler Alert]

Tabula Rasa, the fifth episode of Season 4 Heroes, left us with Hiro travelling back to the Burnt Toast Diner of 3 years before. Tonight's episode, Once Upon A Time In Texas, picked back up on that story, giving us the chance to find out if Hiro is this time successful in saving Charlie, a waitress who died at the hands of the 'Brain Man', Sylar. But does he succeed?
Hiro has the ability to control space and time and uses this to his advantage to clear Sylar from the scene, therefore freeing Charlie from her untimely death but it's not until afterwards that he realises he has messed up the past timeline... Charlie isn't killed therefore Hiro doesn't go back in time to try and save her, meaning no love for Hiro... The solution, endanger your existance by 'meeting' your past self and sending them onto the path of destiny. All is fine. Or so it seems... an unlikely visit from Sylar posing as a 'doctor' to cure Charlie's brain tumour, changing her judgement about her being supposed to die, ends in a visit from Samuel who requires Hiro's assistance, but to get to him? Charlie.

Hello? Stupid people?

Builders at 8 in the morning, film crew just not that bothered, no one will fix the boiler...
People make me want to scream. I got up this morning, at 8, to find next doors had their radio on (loudly I might add) over the noise and the decorating. On top of this, it's also been really cold here for the past week, not outside, weather's been a beauty, but since we've have the boiler 'serviced' it's just never been the same and the guy that keeps getting sent out just isn't doing anything about it. Some people just want money for nothing and it's not fair on those of us who are having to volunteer for the sake of experience. On top of this, I am in the process of making a film, or at least trying to, due to the fact none of my film crew are communicating with me. Since when has the question 'When are you free to work?' been that hard to answer. Look's like that's something else I'll just end up doing myself.
Aside from this, I had a lovely present in the post yesterday. My tickets for The Futureheads Radio 1 show have arrived. For those who don't know, the show in question (featuring The Courteeners and Plan B) will be happening on March 4th at the O2 Academy in Newcastle as part of Radio 1's In New Music We Trust shindig, hitting the Toon March 4th-6th. Tickets are on sale now at most known outlets.

Highlights of last night's Heroes

"That is the second Parkman I've made scream today."
"I slipped back in when you passed out."
Ahhh, Sylar innuendos...

Best ever. 'Nuff said.

'Are we still the greatest?'

Kings of Leon lyric there. Just been kicking off the 'disco' with some Modest Mouse, Float On, and KOL's Sex on Fire. The bass on these headphones is pure gold. I love playing bass and it'll be out tomorrow if I have time, in between my illegal broadcasting and silent discos.

For all you LOST fans who missed out last night, well, you missed out. However, it's too confusing for me to explain what happened so try and catch a repeat, usually Sky 2 at some point in the week.

Heroes buddies, next episode BBC 3 tomorrow at 10 and it's almost halfway through the season already! Last Sunday's ep was Sylar centric, therefore it was mint.

More shirtless Zachy Q please!

Björn Dixgård's voice melts me

I have finally succumbed to the power of Björn Dixgård's voice and therefore my heart has melted. Very much like the Wicked Witch of the West but a far more nicer feeling.
Mando Diao's song Maybe Just Sad sends chills up my spine.
