In town for a bit of Wednesday evening thrash with @gamabomb@twitter.com. Any rumours that they're hungover are LIES. They're professionals. 100% professionals.

In the old days people used to stay cool by not having caused the earth's temperature to rise through centuries of ecological destruction. So maybe try that. Or a wet flannel on the back of the neck.

On the one hand I'm very pro everyone discovering Master of Puppets via Stranger Things but, on the other, it was weird to hear it blasting as a group of scally kids played on a bouncy castle as I rode past just now.

It's not hot, but my mum's smoke alarms are going off because they've overheated. More like woke alarms, am I right? We never had all this palaver back in '76. I blame the pronouns. Etc. Anyway, off I go to cool down some smoke alarms.

The @internetarchive@twitter.com stuff seems to really be dividing opinions amongst a lot of writers and creators. For my part, I think it's a fantastic resource which I've used for research many, many times. I do not believe it has negatively effected sales of my own books or my earnings.
