Time to move

This may be no surprise to anyone but I've decided to stop blogging here at Quantumbiodiscs.

This blog has been running since 2004, it saw me through the final months of my PhD, my first job as a professional researcher and it played an integral role in luring me to the big wide world of political blogging.

From now on I'll be doing all my personal blogging at my shiny new Wordpress blog, Brissie to Brizzle.

If you want to know a little more about my thinking as to why I've decided to switch I suggest you read this post at Brissie to Brizzle.

Oh, and I'll continue to do my political blogging at Larvatus Prodeo (even though I've been slack as hell at LP of late).

All of you with Quantumbiodiscs among your RSS feeds might like to pick up my Brissie to Brizzle RSS feed which can be found here.

Finally, I'll be shutting down comments here soon to stop the spammers. I'm not 100% sure how I shut down Haloscan comments and it may cause some comments to vanish. Sorry in advance if this in any way offends any of you who have commented here.

The Foo Fighters do the best music videos

One of my flatmates showed me this ripper of a music video last week. I'm not the world's biggest "Foo Fighters" fan, but I think this is a great song and a great clip.

Does anyone else have any good music videos they want to share?

It's time to call it

Mark has an excellent post over at LP today. He points out that Howard's approach to this election is going over the top and if he continues in this way he's surely going to lose it. Howard's saturation coverage is having the effect of making him look desperate.

His plan, as has been suggested widely, is to call the election as late as possible while keeping the blowtorch on the ALP in the hope that with every passing week he manages to claw some supporters back. The thing is, people are getting more and more sick of the saturation coverage of this political contest. People are getting bored. If this trend continues Howard is finished.

Howard is looking like a good leader, he's looking desperate and the public can see this. People don't want to vote for an old man who is doing everything to cling to power. What happens if he gets it? Will the public have to endure another three years of this crap? I don't think anyone wants it. It's time for Howard to realize that his approach isn't working. His capital is spent. He has to step aside and give someone else a go or call the election.

Old media rules!

I loved the line:

In your face interested American public! We report! You shut your fu*#ing mouth!

John Howard - now an even older grumpy old man!

Happy birthday John. I really hope that this is your last birthday as PM...
