Engage smug mode

So this blog is fairly smug to begin with, but I’ve got slightly more reason than usual at the moment; the latest issue of the excellent disk-based magazine Vandalism News was released at the Flashback party and it includes an article about the history of RGCD written by James “Heavy Stylus” Monkman which (and here comes the self-satisfied grin) name checks me quite a lot.

But putting my almost painfully over-inflated ego aside for a moment, the piece is very interesting and should probably be required reading for anyone considering the whole retro or indeed indie publishing gig. And as if that wasn’t enough, there’s a new tune from Rock of Finnish Gold in there and that is just several different shades of awesome.

And since I’m doing a particularly “look at me” kind of update today, a photo with me in it at Play Blackpool will apparently be appearing in Retro Gamer’s event report soon (presumably issue 143). So yeah, fame at last and all that – where do I sign up for a couple of groupies…?
