With me thinking about taking up photography more seriously as a hobby, I have found another great reason to use Google+ -- its awesome photo editing features.
Separations is a difficult album to love. But is also contains some of Pulp's biggest breakthroughs.
In a sense, Freaks is Pulp’s most interesting album — probably because it is also the band’s worst album. The original suffered from a rushed production. So could a remastered edition cast a new light on the recordings?
The relationship between Kimi Räikkönen and Lotus F1 Team has become strained, and the race results have been getting worse. Has his signing for Ferrari had anything to do with it?
People often claim that if you do not vote then you automatically lose your right to have a say in any way. This idea is dangerous and wrong.
Despite the fact that I am a huge Pulp fan, I have arrived late to last year's reissues of Pulp's first three albums. But the remastered edition puts It in a new light.
The world knows that Sebastian Vettel is the 2013 Formula 1 World Champion. So why don't the fans get to see him collect his trophy?
In a surprise announcement, Scuderia Toro Rosso have announced Daniil Kvyat as their new race driver for 2014. Is Kvyat really more qualified than his fellow Red Bull Junior Team drivers?
There are many people who reject the idea that Sebastian Vettel's phenomenal success might be down to talent or skill. Most of these explanations are bunk.
The archives to doctorvee, my old blog, have now been restored. It would have been so easy to just not bother restoring it. But I am glad I did.
Ferrari's decision to hire Kimi Räikkönen marks a radical change in policy. Fernando Alonso is no longer the clear number one driver. It appears to be a message to the Spaniard.
How to read the complex personality of Red Bull Racing's new driver Daniel Ricciardo.
Happy birthday Internet Explorer, which has turned 18. But there is not much to celebrate. What can Microsoft do to stem the browser's decline?
My top five drivers of the season so far, including why I rate Fernando Alonso only 5th.
Continuing my analysis of the Formula 1 season so far, this article takes a look at the midfield runners.
This American Life will at long last be broadcast in the UK later this year. I hope this is a sign of things to come, as British radio could learn a lot from North America.
With Formula 1's summer break in full swing, I have decided to take a look at how the drivers and teams are getting on so far this year. Part 1 looks at the drivers who could do better.
I thought I had joined the many people who don't use their degrees in their careers. But I have come to realise that my degree in social science has been absolutely vital to my web design work.
Sauber's deal looks set to fast-track Sergey Sirotkin to F1. The 17 year old has buckets of talent. But that talent needs to be nurtured first.
On Sunday, Dundee's tallest buildings disappeared from the skyline forever. They were merely 40 years old, but were said to be too costly to maintain and too difficult to rent out. In seconds, these proud, sturdy structures collapsed into rubble -- but not without a fight.
I think about the web all the time. I like to believe that I get it. But I am still surprised by the advances in technology and the promise the future holds.
For our latest Angus and Dundee walk, we decided to go a bit further afield. The Rocks of Solitude are situated at the River North Esk, just north of Edzell, on the border between Angus and Aberdeenshire.
I recently decided to switch my main Google account. But how can you do that when your old account contains all of your data? I found out that the process is not entirely straightforward. But with some care and a few sacrifices it is possible.
A long gestation period between albums can go either way. After the disappointiment of 2005’s The Campfire Headphase, Tomorrow’s Harvest surpasses expectations.
Bucklemaker Court and Butterburn Court are currently the tallest buildings in Dundee. But in less than a month they will be gone entirely.
Max Chilton speaks out following his crash with Pastor Maldonado.
It seems that the big story in F1 at the moment (tyres aside) is the poor performance of two of the sport's most famous teams, McLaren and Williams. This situation reminds me a lot of the 2004 season. There are a lot of striking similarities in the declines of these two great teams.
The Spanish Grand Prix weekend was the ultimate reminder that a lack of overtaking cannot be solved by junk tyres or artificial DRS. It's time to turn the focus back onto the circuits.
I made the trek through to Edinburgh on a school night for the rare opportunity to see Adam Buxton's Bug show in Scotland. Although I was feeling the effects today, it was well worth it.
Some journalists may find it "unhelpful" to describe DRS as artificial. But for me, "artificial" is probably the most polite word you can use to describe it.
Radio is an intensely intimate medium. So Tony Livesey's departure from late night radio leaves me worrying about who will send me to sleep from now on.
I have an interest in architecture, and I was excited when I learnt that Lego has an Architecture series. One of the sets is of a favourite of mine -- Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright.
This was our final day in the Lake District, so we had just a few hours to spend before we had to think about making our way back home. I returned to Aira Force, and we explored further around Ullswater.
