Stampy’s Christmas Cake Caper

A few weeks ago I took my children Dundee to see the Royal Society of Edinburgh’s Christmas Lecture… with one of their heroes: Stampy.


Stampy (Joseph Garrett) is one of the top-10 YouTube creators worldwide, posting “let’s play” videos and at least one Minecraft video per day.

The kids loved it, and I have to admit I quite enjoyed it too!

If you’re in the UK (sorry non-UK people) you can watch the video on the BBC iPlayer by going to

The iPlayer shows the afternoon show, but we were at the evening one. If you want to see the Let’s Play from the evening check out the video below.

All I’ll say is the recording doesn’t do the volume justice… a whole theatre full of screaming children can be a tad noisy!

Independence Day: Resurgence trailer now out

Independence Day (1996 – wow, was it really that long ago?) saw alien invaders successfully sent packing from Earth. But, if that happened, would the invaders just give up and go away?

What if they came back? And what if mankind had been using tech salvaged from the first invasion to make sure they were ready for when it happened?

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Independence Day: Resurgence.

The trailer has just been released, and the movie is scheduled to come out in the summer of 2016. Watch the trailer below, and don’t forget to tell us in the comments what you think!
