As a Welshman, I agree with the Irishman who originally created this pic.

Strange name for a game or maybe it's because I'm a Welshman but, Gwent is a county in south east Wales.

New trailer for Despicable Me 3.

I liked the first one. Wasnt so keen on the 2nd one. Hopefully the 3rd will be back on track and as good as the first one.

Shiny new trailer for Valerian which is directed by Luc Besson who also directed (amongst other films) The Fifth Element.

Going by what I've seen in the various trailers for Valerian, I think it might be as good as The Fifth Element. Only one way to find out though.

Shiny new trailer for the new Spider-Man film.

Judging by the trailer, looks like it might be better than all the versions Sony have done since they brought the film rights from +Marvel Entertainment​​ before +Marvel Entertainment​ got into the film making business.

Looks like all that was needed was that Sony let +Marvel Entertainment​​ get involved in making the film.

Knitted Dalek spotted at Llwyngwril station.

It says "Discover another dimension" on the Dalek.

They regularly change the knitted things. Previously there's been knitted sheep and sheepdogs.

One advantage of train delays this morning (due to "major brake failure" according to the guard, had to get off train at Barmouth and wait an hour for next southbound train) has meant I found myself spending some time at Machynlleth Station waiting and spotting a sailrail leaflet in the waiting room.

Had a chat with the man in the ticket office and after a few minutes he managed to find out that it's possible using trains and ferries to travel between Talsarnau and Belfast for almost the same price as it is for trains and planes between Talsarnau and Belfast.

The observant amongst you will notice it says £56 on the printout in the pic. That's because you can only buy them as one way tickets which means £112 for a return.

If your wondering why I'm rambling about tickets and various forms of transport well, 1. I'm running 2 hours late and a bit bored and 2. I'm pleasantly surprised to find that this route to Belfast for this year's only Ingress anomaly​ in the UK is so cheap considering the distance that's travelled.

Still looking a close run thing as to whether I'll be able to scrape the cash together by November but, I'm investigating all avenues.

Bit of bad news for those of us waiting for the autumn release for RDR2, it won't be released until Spring next year.

Turns out you don't need hot water to make coffee, you can actually use cold water.

Have read about cold brew coffee a few times the last couple of weeks but, it looked like you needed allsorts of things including something which is sold on Amazon for £30 but, turns out according to this video which shows you how to make cold coffee that it can be done for much cheaper.

Certainly something for me to try at some point in the not too​ distant future.

A tune that I'd not heard of before but, was introduced to it earlier this week by +Nicola Doyle​.

I quite like it and will have to make myself more aware of what tuneage Pink Floyd has done.
