Mr Twinkle's Story

I’m not sure I can ever convey the wonderfulness of sugar. My greatest pleasures have come from a square lump being dropped into my case by the generous Dr Korb. Many question Korb’s methods, some even call him mad, but I have always found him an excellent companion during our time together. True, we cannot connect on a truly intellectual level, but I find us kindred spirits both looking for answers in a barren land that is not of our making.

Antman

One of my pastimes is reading comics. This is a favourite.

I also like leaves. Crunchy and green, what’s not to like right?

Editing Episode 5 - The Ant: an Introduction

As my regular reader will know, I spend a lot of time in these blogs ranting about the ludicrous sound effects that Science Brian expects me to produce. Anyone who has listened to Episode 5, then, will expect this blog to be no different. Except that… when I first read the script for Solvay-nt Abuse – and saw that I needed to create a giant ant that rumbled, rattled its cage, smashed through the bars, roared, bit a scientist’s arm off, and then proceeded to crash its way through an explicitly marble-floored hotel – I passed straight through ‘ranting’ and emerged on the far side with a sort of cheery determination. Believe me, I was as surprised as you are.

Episode 5: Solvay-nt Abuse

In 1911 a crack team of physicists from around the world assembled in the unheard-of town of Brussels in darkest Belgium. This was the first Solvay conference. Among these know-it-alls were little-known scienticians Albert Einstein and Marie Curie (aglow with her success). This much Wikipedia will tell you. But now Action Science Theatre presents the untold story of this great moment in science history. Will Einstein and Curie end up together? Where exactly is everyone supposed to be from? And what is rumbling in that cage? Find out now!
