Jabu-Jabu retrospective

The Ocarina of Time replay has got as far as the third dungeon. Good grief, this level has not aged well. Nauseating surface textures, annoying puzzles, and enemies that do a lot of damage but can't safely be defeated without the weapon that you don't get until halfway through the dungeon. Urgh.

(Especially annoying when one considers how well much of the game has aged, dated graphics notwithstanding).

If anything, the Gerudo Valley background music is better than I'd remembered, apart from the MIDI trumpets. Shame that it's so jolly hard to find a decent fan version of it. At the time of writing, I've heard around ten dodgy cover versions on YouTube.

Nigel Farage's decision to quit as UKIP party leader might be a problem for his party, on account of his being the only UKIP politician whom anyone has heard of.

I have a crazy idea that Daniel Hannan should quit the Conservative party and join UKIP, taking the libertarian wing of the Tory party with him. He could then contest the UKIP leadership election and win, turning it into a respectable libertarian party, and altering the UK's political landscape somewhat.
