I'm not some crazy fool who spends all day furiously Googling himself (and I hope no one thinks so, I've never comes across someone saying it when furiously Googling myself), but came across this whilst popping over for a browse in the Titan comic thread...
This is awesome! And well worth the £5 a month I pay Ralph to pimp me out.
I'm very glad it seems to be going down well and building up a bit of an audience (I pretend to be all cool and "It's just about doing something I like, not how many readers I get", but every Saturday morning the number of visitors my Friday update has brought is the first ego stroking thing I check. Right before furiously Googling myself.
The nice thing about doing it is it's been the chance to do something upbeat and mostly cheerful. With it being mostly a stream of consciousness thing there was no firm guarantee it would end up that, but with the odd exception where a story hasn't come over as well I remembered when read in context, even with the weaker issues there's been something to enjoy. And anyone who read the tail end of the TFA reviews Ralph mentioned- which I gave up doing on the changeover from McCarthy to Costa- will appreciate why I wanted to do something that wasn't just moaning about how shit it was.
Exciting things for you to all look forward too in the future: With the second anniversary of the project (I like to call it that, makes it sound all sexy) coming up expect a special birthday treat covering Transformer...in 3D!
And one interesting fact about Mr. Turnbull you may not know I learnt from Auto Assembly: He really loves the girl band the Saturdays. Especially Molly.
Wait, this is all an elaborate trick on the Doctor's part to get people to sign up here by stroking their ego isn't it? This forum is full of "What a great blog!" threads.... CURSES!
I think it is perhaps pushing the definition of "process" a little far in that case. I always felt that the Sugababes rosters were organised the same way as an old west posse - they just deputised the folks who were nearest at hand and the time...

My favourite Susgababe's were the red head from the original line up and the blond one who replaced her. If the band ever goes on the Big Reunion I'd be happy if they'd settle for just those two (after all, apprently 5ive has less people in it every year they do the tours for that show, so only two Sugabaes out of 50 shouldn't be a problem).

A double post, which I apologise for, and it's not even about a 90's/00's girl band which is even worse...
I have put together my second annual Christmas quiz covering the comics featured on my site in 2014. But this time I've done it as a video just for fun (partly because I wanted to experiment with something different this year. Partly because when I did it in prose with actual genuine good prizes last year only two people entered)- see how good your TFUK knowledge is (feel free to put your final score either here or on the blog):

I'm genuinely worried my brain is dying as doing three in rapid succession was much harder this year than the last two.
Fingers crossed that (unless he explodes in a puff of rage at me poking him on Twitter to get back with the OK on the final piece. It would seem out of character but you never know) the long promised James Roberts Classics UK interview will hopefully be going up this weekend.
Well, unless he wants a lot of changes. The page has been all ready for a few very nervous weeks, I'm not sure how I'll cope when it's public.
I bet Norton doesn't have interview anxiety issues.

Well, it's only fair as I've been using the readers to do the research I'm too lazy to do.
One of the nice things actually is there's a lot of love for the UK comic outside of normal Transformers fandom (I think it was basically a book every boy in the UK had at least a couple of issues of over the years), meaning you get all sorts of interesting perspectives and facts that haven't previously come up before in the comments section. It's certainly always worth a look at the end of the week even if you haven't posted yourself.
