Desert Of Zin

The occasional blog of Alistair Bain – Writer, Husband, Father and Chief Techno-Arcanologist at the Institute of Giant Robots, Spaceships and Wizards. None of these positions pay well.

Good Morning Internet. It’s been a while.

Just two thing to share, neither of which are mine.

As the wife and child are at church today I get a chance to indulge in some “Sunday Morning Personal Time”. I understand all too well that this has a limited life now – I may have made a rash promise to start attending again soon – but for now I have all the time in the world. As a popular song goes. “All the time in the next hour and a half” isn’t quite as catchy.

Anyway, for those of you who weren’t paying attention at the time, there was a thing in 2011/12 called the Leveson Inquiry which was a public inquiry into the culture, practices and ethics of the British press. All very serious, and for good reason. I’ll not go into the in’s and out’s of it here, but I was rewatching the evidence given by Ian Hislop, editor of Private Eye. Because for reasons, I like both Ian Hislop and Private Eye.

And that led me nicely on to “An Evening of Private Eye 2013″.

Much enjoyed. Well worth a watch.
