Dave's One Night Stand
3x03 Reginald D Hunter
An American, an Aussie and a German walk into a Scottish theatre...
The Radio Times slagged off Hunter's stand-up (I was going to link to that, but they seem to have removed the review from their website), but I thought it was very good, and Henning Wehn was much better here than when he turned up on QI the other week.

Imaginaerum by Nightwish
The new Nightwish album, released here yesterday, which also forms the soundtrack to a forthcoming film.

Why @PayPal is wrong regarding @Regretsy, according to their own policies. by greengeekgirl (from geek girl)
PayPal have demanded a group who raised money to provide Christmas toys for poor & disadvantaged children return all of that money. PayPal will still keep all of the transaction fees, though. And because the person in charge argued about it, they've frozen her personal account through which she does regular business.
And all of this is against PayPal's own policies.
(PayPal have since apologised -- well, sort of -- and are "working" to resolve the situation.)

A daily dose of sci-fi - Day 23

It's party-time!
Which sci-fi character are you going to dress-up as?

No one. Does that count? I guess not.

Because I'm really lazy and really, really don't care.
