Pixieland?

“Can’t sing, can’t dance, can handle a sword a little.”



So who are you?
My name is Andy, I’m living in fair old London, and in no particular order I’m a:

  • Software developer, fencer (lapsed), researcher (former), gamer (computer, console, roleplaying, board), addict (Jelly Babies, sushi, coffee), parent, husband and video game music enthusiast obsessive.

And what’s this site about?
Mostly I write about stuff that interests me (see above). There’s no set theme, but the majority of the posts are about video games and their music, so I guess you could say this site is a video game and music blog.
