Another flotsky site???

I’ve just launched the companion site to flotsky.org, flotsky.com. It’s basically a place for proper bloggy type posts about things, rather than random stuff on my mind like here. Think of this as still my personal site, and flotsky.com as stuff that isn’t just personal. I think that’s a reasonable divide. Go have a look and see what you think. I found a nice theme for it for now too.

frylift – Basically Stephen Fry stuck in a lift

Have had a little fun tonight following @StephenFry on Twitter. Following this tweet:

he posted a picture of his predicament to Twitpic:

There then followed a deluge of tweets with the hashtag of #frylift, and even some cash-in merchandise:

@stephenfry I've already designed the cash-in t-shirt for #fr... on TwitPic

Okay that was me. My favourite was from Father Ted co-creator Graham Lineham who called for help:

 

and also provided a photo:

Happily both Stephen and Graham were rescued and are now safe. This should say something about Twitter, given the numbers of posts and views involved, but I think more than anything it says it is a load of wonderful silly nonsense at times.

Regal to reopen?

A quick follow-up to my previous post What’s going on at the Regal?. The Oxford Times is reporting that it is due to reopen this week, as it has heard from a couple of sources that events have been confirmed as going ahead now.

I’m going to check for myself later in the week to see if this the case, and report back. I hope so, it really would be a shame to lose such a fine venue in Oxford so soon after its launch. These do look like positive signs, although an official comment from the owners on their site or to the Oxford Times would probably be a good idea.

What’s going on at The Regal?

According to the article from the Oxford Mail, The Regal hasn’t re-opened after its Christmas break, and has been shut eight more days than planned thus far.

It’s a lovely place, and a lot of money seems to have been spent getting it back into shape, it would be a big shame if it isn’t going to make it.

Double blow for me, as Hospitality Oxford is due to be there on the 21st February, and I was rather hoping to see London Elektricity live.
