Run Lola Run/Dance Dance Karnov

by Purple Wyrm on April 28, 2002

NTSC: The Television

by Purple Wyrm on April 27, 2002

Well it is pretty much official. Come May 10th, I am moving out of this dump (which is a very nice way to refer to the only home I’ve ever know I must say) and moving into Rebecca’s flat. This (…)

Senatus Populusque Romae

by Purple Wyrm on April 1, 2002

Ah Easter! The time of year when we celebrate the death and resurrection of one Yehoshua ben Yosuf* by giving each other a fattening, brown, alkaloid laced paste† (known by the Aztec words for “bitter water”‡) moulded into the form (…)
