This Week We Have Been . . .
…living out some actual childhood dreams at PlayStation’s incredible Project Morpheus preview. The first time the prototype virtual reality headset has been shown off in the UK, the demos featured everything from space flight, to being submerged into shark-infested waters, to punching a knight’s head clean off. Needless to say, we’re already converts, and can’t wait for it to become a reality – take our money now!!
…spending a long weekend in Edinburgh. After a busy week in the office, we hopped on the Caledonian night sleeper – and argued over who would have the top bunk for the night – and before we knew it we arrived in the Scottish city, ready to explore. First stop, the Royal Mile, and the beautiful Edinburgh castle. Luckily the weather was on our side, so we had a stunning view of the city. The afternoon was full of history – the Scott Monument, Princes St Gardens, Holyrood Palace and St Giles Cathedral. The evenings were full of whisky, which probably wasn’t the best idea when we decided to climb to the top of the 250.5m Arthur’s Seat the next morning…
…walking along the newly opened Quais de la Seine in Paris. Previously jampacked with traffic, the quayside has been pedestrianized since the start of the year.
…getting pwopa nawty at the premiere for ‘The Hooligan Factory’, a light-hearted film taking the mick out of the everlasting ‘football-yob’ film genre. With quotes like ‘Trumpet, prides himself of the fact he’s never been to a football match and he’s seen Green Street 2 over 140 times’, what’s not to like?
