    Seeing as Julia is geek speaks harry potter 😛 I have a story that might amuse everyone.  In my old flat we had some neighbours upstairs with a son who never left the house (we lived there for 4 years he left the house once in the 4 years we were there).  It turns out that they had converted the cupboard for him to sleep in, like harry potter, because he wanted it.  The neighbour above them was installing a new bathroom himself and had to go down to ask for something and noticed a problem.

    Basically to allow him to live in the cupboard they had to make it slightly wider so they had removed the supporting wall and put up some pillars and a false plasterboard wall (which they had been told would be adaquate support but was not).  The upstairs neighbour was in the middle of installing a massive standing bathtub so if they had actually finished it and filled it with water it would probably have come through the ceiling and squashed him.

    Yeah I think this all happened to Julia but the bath actually squashed her, that’s why she’s the way she is.

    Hi!,

     

    I’m not sure if it was masterful editing or just tremendous discipline on the part of everyone (other than Kev), but that was an impressively coherent show. Well done all involved.

    Little from column A and a little from column B really. It’s a mixture of pricey equipment I thought I’d never fully use, people following directions (apart from Tim shaking his mic, Kev talking without a mic and a couple not switching their phones off that is) and a long edit.

    I’m glad it worked out as I’ve never done a show on site before so I wasn’t really sure how it would sound and had been quite worried. Now to plan a big live show with the whole team.

I loaded up EA access on my xbox one yesterday and when I went to the vault Battlefront flashed up and disappeared a second before all the games loaded in to me that says it’s been added to the vault Queue but hasn’t went live yet for ea access advanced beta preview hmm I do hope so

    Somehow it just sounded wrong the other way around… oh dear.
    What a bonanza of an episode! Unbox actually looks pretty great, cheers for putting that on my radar! Also super glad that the general reports on Battlefront are positive, it had such a huge amount of hype to live up to and somehow it seems to be managing that so far.
