Goes ding when there's stuff

According to the BBC right now, two of the top three most important things happening in the world are some bloke that used to be our prime minister changing the denomination of his religion, and some chick out of a girlband winning a BBC talent show. BBC News - highest quality.

On the other hand, the new BBC iPlayer is really, really good. There's loads of stuff on it - most of the last week's TV plus random other things. I was watching Blink a couple of nights ago, and the quality is decent enough, certainly. And you don't have to log in, or download software, or anything.

Nightmare Before Christmas 3D was OK, but was mainly in 3D layers because it's an old film that's been fiddled with, and whenever anyone moved the 3Dness went dodgy. But we saw the trailer for Journey To The Centre Of The Earth (or "Journey 3D", apparently) and it looks amazing, 3D-wise. And hilariously cheesy otherwise.

Sorry, I didn't see your Nightmare thing till tonight - Internet's been down in our area for a few days. I think that the Tony Blair news article is a pile of pants; who, after all, gives a toss what religion he is? Actually, I'm more worried at him converting TO Catholicism. One commenter on the page said that he was dismayed that TB had used the "voices in his head" to decide whether to go to war in Iraq or not...so am I.

It would have been quite funny if the Pope hadn't let him in because he was too evil, I guess. But yes, I don't really see how it's relevant at all.

We'll have to meet up soon! I'll call you.

Perspectives. Blair changes religion. Mat-the-voter cares not. Mat-the-constitutional-geek is very interested, especially given the implications for future reform of things like the CofE.

But given I'm knackered, my constitutional geekery is switched off and told not to analyse it for a few days at least.

It is, technically, a major news story. IT's just that the figures used to base how important it is are the most recent census and similar, which overestimate horribly the number of people who care.
