The first official promo clip for the upcoming Transformers movie really puts the ‘teaser’ into ‘teaser trailer’; I can imagine there are a few fanboys foaming at the mouth after seeing this. I just hope the movie (still nearly a year away) can live up to expectations

Muse - Black Holes and Revelations

The new album from Muse is out on Monday 3rd July in the UK (11th July in the States), and I’ve managed to get hold of a preview copy! I’ve been listening to it all week, and while I don’t think it’s quite the behemoth that Absolution was, it’s still an absolute cracker. Standout tracks for me are Starlight, Map of the Problematique, and Knights of Cydonia (that last track should be the cause of plenty of Wayne’s World style in-car head banging over the next few months)

Popped into Liverpool the other day for the first time in a while and saw this new building on Hanover Street. Don't really know anything about it except that I love it!

Given that so many interesting buildings in Liverpool are being demolished to make way for "Luxury Apartment" blocks that look like designer prisons, it's nice to see some striking new architecture appearing

Got my Finger Drums yesterday – fantastic! It's a mouse mat that also doubles as a mini drumkit (of course) – there are pressure sensitive pads behind each of the drums & cymbals in the picture. I'm going to drive my colleagues SO mad with this!

The website for PSP game LocoRoco (due out tomorrow in the UK) recreates the actual control system from the game to navigate around the site. And it works really well; although I have to admit that once the novelty had worn off I ended up using the quick nav to browse the different parts of the site

Top of the Pops is dead – long live Top of the Pops June 21, 2006

So the BBC have finally done it. They've finally achieved what they've been working so hard towards and killed off Top of the Pops. Did they really think that moving it to BBC2 on a Sunday night (and then occasionally sticking it on a different night without announcing it just to keep viewers on their toes) was actually going to improve ratings?! It seems as though they've been doing everything they possibly can to kill TOTP off for good, and now they've succeeded. Nice one, dickheads
