Mindswap

Which is a film that George made that I very vaguely helped with and also appear in it briefly and you can watch it by clicking on this sentence right here, this one, look, over here.

My profile views have gone up to a whopping 49, which made me excited, but then I realised that every time I look at it counts as a view. I refreshed the page and suddenly I had 50 views. At this rate my profile could have seven million views by the end of the week.

Steven Fry started a blog the same month I started a blog.

It's true. Look. He even has photos of himself in the process of writing about the things in the blog. He writes about as wide ranging topics as fame and modern technology, revealing himself to be well informed about the history of user interfaces and computer design ideology. I only skim read it but still giggled at his observations and discovered things I didn't know about the Battle of Agincourt.

This is just the sort of petty behaviour I've come to expect from Steven Fry. I start a blog, he has to start a blog too. I attempt to work on a series of small films filmed on digital cameras, he has to have a career spanning over twenty years as an award-winning actor, writer and comedian, becoming generally accepted as a national treasure and the most intelligent man on UK television. It's just typical of his childish one-upmanship. Bet he'll be on here next, winning Nobel Prizes for his criticisms of my spelling and grammar, and designing a Flash interface based on the teachings of Copernicus. It's like he's pissing in my face.

Man, it's fine knowing there are people who are better than you at basically everything, but knowing their parallel blogs is just nasty.
