You know his name

Casino Royale, the most eagerly-anticipated film of the year, is out in about six weeks and I’m almost wetting myself thinking about it.

Just to tease you, here’s a remix of the film’s theme tune, You Know My Name, written by Chris Cornell and David Arnold. Unfortunately, the original version of the track isn’t quite as exciting as this remix (the original has none of the orchestral bursts in), but it’s not bad.

Personally, I love the remix, but the original is also on YouTube here so you can compare.

Fun, fun, fun!

Writing about web page

There’s going to be some televisual fun this lunchtime as a bunch of anarchists protest the new session of Parliament with a riot demo in Parliament Square, London.

The police are apparently taking it seriously, and I’m told the BBC are planning on making a big deal of it later today.

But it’s interesting there’s no mention of it on most news websites at the moment. Hopefully there’s so few people reading this blog that no-one will be encouraged to join in! I’m sure you’ll only get a battering from the cops anyway.

Well done Boar
