It's not a new song or anything, but I've managed to get one of my offerings on a podcast, which I was terribly chuffed to discover. Behold! (Mine's the second one).

Missed this the first time round but after a second one of Alf's songs was included this week the connection clicked in my head. Well done!

Sounds like a wonderful day, Anne. What, exactly, is a popover?

This weekend I've been at an anime convention in Middlesbrough (Nemacon) where I took part in an Anime Music Video contest. An AMV consists of any song and then making a music video for it using various clips from one or more anime shows.

I failed to win the contest but got an honourable mention because people thought it was funny.

The song is "A Song of Patriotic Prejudice" by Flanders and Swann (a song that was used as Alan's buzzer in the "England" episode). The anime is Hetalia: Axis Powers, a comedy covering the war and various other bits of history, where all the characters are stereotyped personifications of countries, of which England is one.

That popover does look amazingly like a baby Yorkshire pudding, though we usually eat ours with roast beef and gravy.

Nice video Ian - I've shared that one to Facebook :-)

I've just learned that Nemacon made the papers. It was a centre-page spread in The Independent and a post in MSNBC's PhotoBlog. Other images can be found at Getty Images.

Thank you Jenny :)

PROMS! The highlight of the University of Lancaster Music Society's concert series. This year's concert takes place on the 25th of June at 7pm in the Great Hall, Lancaster University. The show should last unitl around 9.30pm. It will feature myself playing timpani in the Brass Band, Orchestra and opening fanfare, along with many musicians:

Main ensembles: Brass Band, Wind Band, Orchestra, Choir, Big Band and Swing Group

Small ensembles: String Quartet, Sax Quartet, Brass Quintet, Trombone Playing Gentleman's Club, Flute Choir and Barber/Barbieshop group.

The concert features an array of talent from hard-working students, and finishes with a rousing rendition of the BBC Last Night of the Proms favourites Henry Wood's 'Fantasia on British Sea Songs', 'Jerusalem' and 'Land of Hope and Glory'.

Unlike the BBC Proms, the concert features different genres of music, although there is still some classical. There will also be swing numbers and some rock, albeit played by wind and brass instruments.

Tickets cost 10 for adults and 6 for concessions (under 18, over 65, students) and can be ordered from (you'll get an email saying you must pick them up on the day i.e. the daytime, but I don't think anyone would mind if you picked them up in the evening.

Parking is free, and there should be ample space. Try to park on the north side of campus to avoid getting unnecessarily lost. If you do get lost, there are large maps and very friendly students ready to point you in the right direction. Alternatively, take the train, then the bus. The x1 bus (direct from the train station to the university) stops running around 5pm, but the station is a short walk from the main bus stops on Common Garden street (which is closer to the train station than the bus station), from where you can catch a 2, 2A, 3 or 4, which will take you to the campus. Get off at the Chaplaincy Centre. The Great Hall is opposite and to the left of the bus stop (with your back to the stop). You can find a map here.

I hope at least one of you can come. It's going to be an awesome night :)

Sadly, dear swotling, I will not be able to get to that, though it sounds a most splendid evening in the offing.

It might be live streamed online. I'll keep you all updated.
