Hello.

I'm beemoh, I'm Male, I'm 23, and I think I'm funny. This is probably my downfall.

I have been known to spout generic livejournal-grade angsty crap on my website, at beemoh.co.uk, but there's the odd funny thing on there. Somewhere.

There's also some semi-comepetent journalistic ramblings encompassing entertainment-based forms, generally videogames.

Aside from that, there's not so much that you might want to know. Contact me if there is, mind. :D

A query on the matter of Job Centre
So I've been stuck in the demoralizing loop of the jobcentre for about six months. I'm looking for jobs in computing, mainly- I have a degree in one of those flimsy games design courses, *and* thirteen months' worth of industry experience culmunating in a proper, disc-based release you can actually go out and buy new in shops and everything. Since the UK games industry seems to have shut up shop recruitmentwise completely, I'm looking outside my immediate field for, as I say, other jobs in computing- software engineering, web/multimedia design, that sort of thing. Even setting computers up will do.

So why on earth, given that I'm exclusively contacting computer companies exclusively to work with computers, have none of the jobs the Job Centre has suggested to me had an email address attached to apply through?

» Thrown away: The stuff you loved and lost.

I had a Pong game.
One of those little ones that you plugged into the TV, before they invented real consoles, and more importantly, the ZX Spectrum/Commodore 64. (delete as applicable)

You know, one of these. It was either the Mentor Colour 6 or the Monarch CTX-4 Color, I forget which now- I seem to remember the unit being orange, but then I also remember it having big switches that made really satisfying "clunk" noises when you switched them.

Despite the game being massively behind the times (we were part way through the NES era when I had it) I loved that thing. It was what got me into games, setting me off on that rollercoaster of taking ages to be this good, of commanded armies and conquered worlds, and of jumping in which has made me the person I am today*. It's not just a posession or a cultural artefact, it's part of me.

Which is why it hurt so much when she gave it away to the Scouts to sell at some Bring & Buy.

We haven't spoken since.

* Yes, a socially inept manchild loser ha ha fuck off
