    There's gotta be a Green Party joke here somewhere...

    If anything says 'Jakob' it's a Soundcloud waveform that looks like that.

    Where's the "Like" button on this thing!? :)

  • Feed: Fulminating and fermenting,

    In Wellington over the weekend, the Malthouse and Hashigo were stacked with IPA's (from the West Coast challenge), it was hard to find one under 6.5%, in fact they were advertising 6-6.4% ones as their lighter drinking beers. I get the feeling there's an expectation people should be able to knock 3 or more pints of this beer back, but it's a bit too strong for my fortitude.

    That win flattered Italy, I reckon. England were competitive and unlucky not to win, but Italy looked stodgy and one-dimensional. Brazil, Argentina, Netherlands or Germany would've beaten them easily, I reckon.

    Not sure about that. England finally look like they have some attacking threat with Sterling and Sturridge, Welbeck wasn't bad either. But no one in white came close to the class of beautifully bearded Italian Andrea Pirlo.

    Is Diego Costa the Quade Cooper for this world cup. Country swapping, niggles off the ball, booed by the crowd every time he touches the ball, plays well for his club, but crap for his adopted country?

    Not fit I reckon. Wonder if Spain is paying the price for the massive European season that their major clubs had. But it's more than that, key players getting older, their spiritual leader Puyol retiring. Casillas aged 20 years out there today. Kinda sad to see but all power to the Dutch.

  • Field Theory: It has started,

    The issue is that ref's seem to need the drop and roll before they're willing to give a penalty. Wrapping, grabbing and pulling seem to be increasing in the game precisely because defenders know that if the player doesn't drop, they're likely to get away with it. The odds work in defenders favour.

    I only saw the first half but was pleasantly surprised at how positive a game it was from both sides, with both sides having decent chances. Brazil were nervous but they'll be a bit more carefree now that they have a tough 3 points in the bag.

    Don't you just love that Brazil's goalkeeper is 3rd choice at newly promoted Queens Park Rangers? What a strange old world...

    album of the year for me thus far, can't see it being beat.

    I can't get enough of the Robert Palmer cover/rework of Johnny & Mary with that Brian Ferry chap singing... added bonus of a cracking fan-made video featuring Cherry 2000 visuals

    Ha, nice, hadn't seen that. Think the whole middle section of the album just moves along beautifully. Great for home, car or party!

    You can rely on Vadim. He always comes correct.

    How about the Norwegian mustachioed maestro Todd Terje bringing the jazz funk disco to warm up the winter chill?
