This site is an online portfolio of creative things I’ve done. From folk music to video games, most of it is documented here! Featured content that I think you’ll enjoy is shown above (you’ve scrolled past it!) while the blog/news section is available here. I’ve done a lot of reorganising of content today. I’ve tagged a bunch of stuff too, and removed or repaired lots of broken links. It makes me feel like my whole life is getting tidy!
The majority of the content in the site is accessible via the top menu of the site. As I continue to create things I will both edit those pages and add news posts below. Thank you for your visit!
GFW Radio was a podcast made by the editors of Games for Windows magazine (formerly Computer Gaming World magazine). I loved it so much. It ran from 2006-2008 and featured some of the funniest, well-informed critics in the gaming industry. Shawn Elliott’s anarchic sense of humour was a highlight of the show for me, as well as the inside baseball regarding the state of games journalism at the time.
Unfortunately, the older episodes of the show don’t seem to be available on the 1up website any more. I have archived all episodes of the show, created a torrent of the same and am currently streaming all the episodes 24/7 to celebrate this re-release! The archive also includes video of Jeff’s final podcast and a bunch of best-of & reunion collections. Every podcast has been lovingly tagged and artwork for each episode is included. I’m very proud of this collection; it should keep fans busy for a while!

I’ve made yet another new tumblr blog. quakemaps.tumblr.com
This one is inspired by Goldsource Gold (Goldsource meaning Half Life), whose mission statement is “Exhibiting and preserving the great look and feel of Goldsource engine games & mods from days gone bye.” It would be a crime not to do the same for Quake maps, so I made a wee tumblr.
Having read about Microshaft Winblows 98 in Richard Cobbett’s amazing Saturday Crapshoot article, I looked for a full playthrough online. Unbelievably, there wasn’t one. So I made one.
Microshaft Winblows 98 is a “hilarious”, “side-splitting” parody game by Parroty Interactive. It tries and fails to lampoon Microsoft, Bill Gates, 90s TV shows and nerd culture. There are awful nerd parodies of Star Trek, Xena, Baywatch and Friends, including a horrendous joke at the expense of Matthew Perry and his 90s drug habit. This whole product is cringeworthy.
It took me over 90 minutes to play this thing, so feel free to skip through the video. Enjoy!
