Hello! I'm Tom. I designed a game called Gunpoint, about rewiring things and punching people, and now I'm working on a new one called Heat Signature, about sneaking aboard randomly generated spaceships. Here's some more info on all the games I've worked on, here's the podcast I do, here are the videos I make on YouTube, here are some of the articles I wrote for PC Gamer, and here are two short stories I wrote for the Machine of Death collections.
Since John Peel died, it’s gone back to being a weird exprience to hear something on the radio and like it. But Five Years’ Time has been forcefully cheering up this miserable British weekend. It’s by Noah And The Whale, who I am hesitant to look up. It works perfectly this once, but I’m pretty sure you can’t get more twee than this without a special permit.

Punjab: Good stuff.
As it happens I just featured this on my podcast: http://www.stealthmu... ...ogspot.com
RandomCheese: That's strangely catchy.
Pod: It made me want to kill.
Newt Pulsifer: Strangely catchy, indeed!
Jazmeister: I've been hearing this on the radio at my night shift job for ages, and yeah, it is weird to like something that dribbles through that worn orifice, once loved so well. Isn't it creepy though, the whole bit about the romance falling apart? Or maybe just bad medicine to anyone in a long term relationship.
Lack_26: A nice remedy to having the 5 1/2 inches of rain we've had here over the past 24 hours.
Tom Francis: Yeah, it sounds so saccharine on first listen, then when you pay attention you realise none of this actually ever happens. It's not even clear if they're together in the present, all we know is that he knows her. And after imagining that nice little scenario, he admits that even that might not last. But whatever happens, she'll be fine because she's hot.
At least, that's my reading of the last stanza.
Punjab: By the way, the girl in question is Laura Marling, who I think is now part of the band. It's her singing anyway.
aberrate: This song has the amazing quality of only having to be heard once before you know all the words. It's great. Their album's nice to listen to as well.
Jazmeister: We're totally falling into their conceptual trap, aren't we? They're reading this right now, like directors sitting in the audience.
Kyle: I really like whistling in music... haha!
Iain "DDude" Dawson: Awesome.. thanks for the heads-up.
Inferno: Ah this is such a cheery song, it's great.
