Om. Nom. Nom.

Last night I had the best sushi I have ever tasted in my life. It was beautiful and moving.

I will be going back. Soon.

Have yourself an 8-bit little Xmas.

To keep with the spirit of things, I thought I might share this version of a popular Christmas song, the twist being that it’s done to sound like it came out of a NES. Which can only be a good thing.

Chip-tune version of  “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”

It’s maybe a bit “techno” in places,  but it mellows out towards the end. If you fancy more, there’s a whole album you can listen to (click the box at the bottom left).

Merry Xmas!

Okonomiyaki

Made some okonomiyaki for dinner last night – for the past week or so actually – and thought I’d share the joy of it with the world. This is an imitation of the “London mix” available from Abeno in London. Contains bacon, cheese and salmon. Toppings are okonomiyaki sauce, japanese mayonnaise and aonori (powdered seaweed) all purchased from the awesome Japan centre on Piccadilly.

Okonomiyaki

I used the recipe here as a guide:

but roughly halved the amounts of everything to make it a sensible size for on person. Much easier to flip as well, I’d imagine.

I wonder how many nights I’ll have to eat this in a row before I get sick of it? Planning on adding mushrooms to the fray tonight…. how exciting.

The Sound of Your Voice

Okay, this is just too cool.

One of my favourit bands, Barenaked Ladies, has made their latest music video using submissions from various YouTube “celebrities” and have posted online for everyone to watch. They even encourage people to host the video on their sites. So I will.

One of my favourite songs off their latest album actually.

Test Post

Hi again,

Just a test to check out some more functionality. I am creating this entry by sending an email to a secret address. It avoids me having to go through all the hassle of the blogger.com user interface.

If you fancy having a go at creating a blog of your own why dont you check them out?

Just trying to see if this Blogger thing will work or not.

Hopefully it will, and poeple will have the chance to read my ramblings!
