In Other News – 21 June, 2011

1 min read


Today is Tuesday, named for Tiw or Tyr, the the Norse god of combat, victory and heroic glory. He’s analogous to, and regularly identified with both the planet and the Roman god of war,  Mars – which explains why languages that are Latin-based all have words based around “mars” for their names for this second day of the week. Italians call it Martedì, The Spanish call it Martes, and the French call it Mardi.

Me? I just call it “one day closer to the weekend.”

Here’s the news we didn’t post because we’ve been trying to scratch the blue “In Other News” bit off the header image, like we tried to do with the stars from all of dad’s Scope magazines.

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.
