But it's the middle of the night! G&T's on downtime! featured image

Yes, it’s true. We’re leaving you. We hate you all, so we’re shutting the site down. We are, however, re-opening it shortly afterwards. The site will be down from 21:00 on Thursday 4th September until 04:00 on Friday the 5th. And we expect you all to hang around until four o’clock in the morning, frantically hitting the refresh button, awaiting the return of your favourite site. What is more likely, however, is that you won’t even notice we’re gone. You set of bastards.

The reason for this downtime is simple: the fabled relaunch we’ve been promising for a while. Relax, gentlemen, you are quite safe…

Rob Grant's Incompetence featured image

No, I'm not talking about Dark Ages!!!!!1 This is Rob Grant's latest novel, which is not due for release until December. However, under the cover of Darkness (I disguised myself by dressing as Justin Hawkins), I managed to break into Rob's house, being careful not to disturb Doug's snoozing, satisfied wife, and swipe a proof copy for myself. Okay, I bought it on eBay. It was much easier that way. Anyway, the upshot of all of these exploits is this: a preview. Rest assured, there are no major spoilers, so you are safe to dive in willy-nilly.

On the surface, this is good news. Chris Barrie is to appear at the London Expo on the 18th and 19th of October. This is yet another chance for the fans to chat to their rival, and get another piece of their merchandise signed. Marvellous. However, as Chief Winged News Monkey Tracy Brennan points out, the last we heardon the Movie was that it will start shooting in Australia in October. Admittedly, we didn't get an exact date, but the 18th is a little too close for comfort. We hope to God that Chris will fly out pretty soon after his appearance at the Expo, but if not... well, it doesn't bare thinking about. The consequences could be dreadful.

Yes, as every website under the sun (well, Big Blake and RDZ) has reported, the Starbug Playsets are now ready to pre-order! It's at Galaxy 4 for a very reasonable £29.99. However, Galaxy 4 lose marks for the following: they won't allow you to register with an e-mail address that ends in .info and they think that 'Crighton' is a Red Dwarfcharacter. But enough snideyness - the Playset is excellent. It looks to be a very nice piece of merchandise, and I can't wait to see which sounds from the series will be used.
