I gotta admit it. I love big dumb action movies. All the way from the graceful death ballet of Hard Boiled to the gritty one line spitting Die Hard, I love to turn my brain off and just enjoy gratuitous violence from time to time. So obviously, I'm a huge fan of the first Crank. Plot wise, it was genius - An assassin called Chev Chellios, played by Jason Statham gets poisoned in his sleep, he has a limited amount of time to live, and he sets out for revenge. And the only thing that'll keep him…See More
In my time short here I have seen and spoke to many Dead Set fans. But most of them don't know who came up with it. This now changes. Charlie Brooker is the name. He thought of Dead Set. And he rules! Welcome to Spill Burn.See More
I'M BACK MOTHERFUCKERS!!! It's been three very strange and annoying years I won't get into, but I'm back on Spill.com and I gotta say, I missed it guys. I not longer have either facebook or twitter, so don't even bother looking :P
Well, I'm still living in the ass end of nowhere, AKA Aberdeen, but I'm not at uni. As I said, I won't get into it here. Long story short, I'm unemployed and looking for work.
Apart from that, I'm an avid videogamer, film fan, music freak, still writing, the usual crap really...
No point in trying to explain every facet of my personality here - you wanna know me, add me!
Glad to be back peeps!

(For those of you not in the know, I write a lot of video game reviews. I know this isn't exactly the place to talk about games, but this one is stunning.)
People trawl god knows how many shitty flash pages looking for little timewasters, and most of them are either completely unplayable, boring or too short. We really do need more flash games like this. This isn't just a little timewaster. This is art.

What the hell, figured I may as well put this up here. I'll be the first to admit I'm not the biggest movie buff in the world, but here's my favourite selection of moments that literally shocked me. Of course, if you've never seen any of these movies for some strange retarded reason, DON'T READ THIS LIST!!! It'll ruin these movies for you!
5) Momento. God, what a movie. And then, the ending...just wow. Finding out that he's already got his revenge is shocking, only more so when you… Continue
Hello. As the creator of the Charlie Brooker group I'm so fuckin jazzed to to report that a new Brooker show next week on BBC. It's called Newswipe. If I can, I will be posting each new show on the group board the next day. Cheers.
No. Sorry, I must be in the same boat as you when it comes to T in The Park(the boat being shit creek by the way) I'll give the torrent thing a go. I've got series five.of Sceeen Wipe But theres a guy on YT who has every episode, and every series on his page so I just go there the now. And yes that is a dream come true about shitty BB. You never know series 10 is coming so fingers crossed.
PS. I'm also trying to turn folk onto Charile Brooker. Theres many folk here who love Dead Set, but don't have a bloody clue who was behind it. I'm going to change that. If I could it right, I would stick YT clips up from Screenwipe.
