Inspired by Ed Jefferson’s recent look at London’s bollards, I decided to explore another aspect of our history that has worked itself into the fabric of the city: fences. You probably don’t pay much attention to fences as you’re going about your day-to-day life, unless maybe you’ve lost your headphones, which is completely fair enough.

Jokes about Tolkien. As performed at The Over-Analyser’s Book Club, February 27th 2018. Photo: Steve Cross
I then performed a live version of the piece at the British Library.
I made an exciting guest appearance on the CageClub podcast to discuss Nic Cage’s latest terrible film, Arsenal. It has nothing to do with football.
This episode includes, among other things, a discussion between host Jonn Elledge and I on whatever it is that makes us want to spent entire days walking from one arbitrary point to another.
I had a nice chat with the excellent PodCage lads, who are attempting to watch every Nicolas Cage film ever made. What kind of idiot would do that?
As performed at Waterstones Tottenham Court Road on 24th June 2016. Apologies that you can see quite a lot of my arse at the beginning.
Comic writer and journalist Ed Jefferson has read all the biographies of Nicolas Cage, so that you don’t have to. Filmed at the first Books Showoff on 24th June 2016 at Waterstone’s Tottenham Court Road. Books Showoff is part of the Science Showoff family of events http://www.scienceshowoff.org
This was the second performance version of this enduringly stupid bit of #content, sadly only captured on audio given it’s probably the only time I’ll perform on the main Barbican stage.
It was part of the Geek Show-off “fun” bit of the Wikipedia conference. Jimmy Wales wished us luck before we went on. The audience was mostly comprised of people tapping away on their laptops.
I waste the time of some people from Wikipedia by telling them about how I diagnosed Myers-Briggs personality types of London Underground lines, at Geek Showoff during Wikimania 2014.
Last year’s run of Europe’s biggest award-losing video games radio show include a semi-regular series of contributions from a man called Mick Rossiter. You can find them archived below:
This year Mick may be writing further letters to One Life Left, which can be heard on Resonance 104.4 FM every Monday at 7PM, or on the internet. No, I have never heard of Chris Morris, who is he?
