How to wrap Christmas presents

It'll soon be Christmas again, so here's the formula for wrapping presents properly.

Handy tip: when wrapping, if you think the piece of paper you have is too short, try rotating the present by 45 degrees, so when wrapped, the corners of the paper meet. You'll be amazed at what you can fit this way.

If you want to practise, check out my Chrstmas list, buy stuff for me, and wrap it, that way your technique will be perfected when you start on your own family's gifts. I am so thoughtful.

Alan Moore to appear on Simpsons

Wow, who could have guessed this one would happen?
NORTHAMPTON writer Alan Moore is to feature in a forthcoming episode of The Simpsons.

Moore, aged 53, recorded his lines at The Lodge studios in Abington Square last month for an episode which will be called Husbands and Knives.
The Simpsons' production team are long-time fans of Moore's, whose reputation in the world of graphic novels is legendary.
A chance meeting with his fiancée Melinda Gebbie got the project rolling.

Update: Moore talks a little about it at around 52:40 minutes into Fanboy Radio 349. Could Dan Clowes and Art Spiegelman also be appearing?

Lost Girls

My copy of Lost Girls arrived this morning from (it won't be officially released in the UK until January 1st 2008), so if you want to grab a copy sooner, this method seems to work!

It cost me $56 with postage, which at todays exchange rate is about £29.50. Bargain.
