Post Trauma

December 12, 2013 Ben Interwebs

PortsCenter 1.22 is uploaded, I’ve created and queued the pages for Retroware (today, just after 1pm PST) and PortsCenter.TV (tomorrow, twenty-four hours later), and I’ve also queued up the post for the PortsCenter Tumblr on Friday at 1:01pm. I need to get more organized with my post-production process. Shooting the couch segments of an episode […]

In compliance with the Internet Narcissism Act of 2004, I’ve created a Facebook Page where I’ll be posting updates about my writing projects and stand-up. It’s a little bare-bones right now, but it’s early days yet. Give me time, stop pestering me! God, you’re so impatient! Tweet



RedBubble’s AdeGee Stole My Art

May 29, 2012 Ben Interwebs

Back in 2006, I crapped out this piece of Red Dwarf fan-art for an “Instruction Manual Shenanigans” competition on the Penny Arcade Forums. Red Dwarf – Rimmer salute by ~squirminator2k on deviantART Six years later, AdeGee on RedBubble posted it as his own tee-shirt design, and has apparently sold one. Which is nice for him, […]



So I Said to this Bloke…

January 2, 2012 Ben Interwebs

It really pisses me off when people tell me that Texts From Bennett is fake. It’s not because I think the site is genuine – in fact I’ve no real opinion on the matter, largely because I don’t think it makes any difference either way. Would it really be less funny if it were fake? Not really. […]

Facebook – Site Changelog for May 2011

May 2, 2011 Ben Interwebs

The “Keep me logged in” checkbox at the sign-in screen is now purely decorative. We’ve added everybody to everybody else’s friend lists because, y’know, it’s basically all going that way anyway. Pressing Alt+F4 will display a sarcastic message about Friendster shutting down. I mean, it’s about time, right? Thankfully that’ll never happen to us. People […]

An accidental horror

December 2, 2010 Ben Interwebs

As much as I love horror – and when I say horror I mean actual horror, not “OH NOES HERE COMES A GUY WITH A KNIFE RUUNNNN” horror, or Saw-esque Torture Porn – I’ve never really considered myself any good at writing it. Nevertheless I accidentally found myself writing some horror this afternoon on Twitter […]

Stop telling me what I can and can’t use Twitter for

April 6, 2010 Ben Interwebs

There have been a number of articles over the last year or so telling us what we shouldn’t be tweeting about. Pretty much everyone I know has seen this “article” on The Oatmeal, and there are a number of other articles on the subject. You don’t want to know what I had for breakfast? You’re not […]

Why is Videogame Journalism full of Morons?

February 18, 2010 Ben Film & Television

Videogame journalism has been in a decline for the last two decades now. In the early 90s magazines were giving average games a 7 out of 10 score instead of the more obvious 5, purely to appease developers and publishers, and to ensure they continued to get review copies of the latest games. Incredulous and […]

“Let us know if you *knuckle-crack* change your mind.”

February 16, 2010 Ben Interwebs

I’ve let my McAfee antivirus account lapse, mostly because I don’t really like the idea of paying an annual subscription fee for a piece of software that they also release a new version of every year, meaning if I want to keep my antivirus software 100% current I basically have to pay for it twice. […]

An open letter to Whoever Winds Up Organising This Year’s “Rage Against The X-Factor” Campaign

January 29, 2010 Ben Culture from the Perspective of the Uncultured

Dear loose confederacy of internet protestors, You did good last year. You managed to bring to a stop The X-Factor’s streak of inane UK Christmas Number Ones. I applaud you for that. But next year could you… I don’t know… maybe pick a different song? It’s not that I don’t appreciate your effort, and it’s […]
