As if touched by some kind of divine inspiration, this song has settled upon me, and I feel obliged to share:

I’ll put the god Set on you
I’ll put the god Set on you
I’ll put the god Set on you
I’ll put the god Set on you

But it’s gonna take mummies
A whole lot of stolen mummies
It’s gonna take plenty of mummies
To do it right

It’s gonna take crime
A whole lot of heinous crime
It’s gonna take grave-robbing crime
To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it
To do it right

I’ll put the god Set on you
I’ll put the god Set on you
I’ll put the god Set on you
I’ll put the god Set on you

Apologies to both George Harrison and Set.

In site-keeping news, I’ve changed my WordPress setup so that the whole of the johnband.org domain is now part of the CMS, rather than just the blog.

The blog appearance and all the blog URLs should have stayed the same (drop a line in the comments if anything has stuffed up), but the homepage now looks responsive and contemporary instead of the extremely retro, hand-coded HTML/CSS feel it previously rocked.

This upgrade also means that I can more easily do other non-blog projects here if I want (which – spoiler alert – I probably do want, and will tell you about when they’re closer to existing).

Oh, also I wrote a piece for CityMetric on why bad decisions made by railway managers in the 1920s mean that commuters from South London get particularly stuffed over whenever it snows. I’m also currently working on one about the Thameslink programme, but given that the programme is running 20 years late then I wouldn’t hold my breath for the piece.
