Man, it’s been a horrible week so far. I know, I know – it seems like I only ever do this thing when I have cause to complain; mostly when I’m grumpy from not sleeping. That, surprisingly, isn’t the issue right now. The inside of my head seems to have taken on the incredible super power of producing masses of clear, viscous gumph. The worst of it isn’t that that I’m going through more tissues now than when I hit puberty, but that it’s caused my ears to block up – and it constantly feels like my head is in a box. Underwater. Spinning.

It’s completely disorienting, and I can barely make out what people right next to me are saying – it’s like everybody’s become the adults from the Peanuts cartoons, coupled with the whirlwind joys of vertigo.

Here’s the news we didn’t post because Warrr Waaaa. Waa Wmmmm Wamrr wwwwrrraa. Wrm wll mbple pbl.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
