  6. Christmas Day approaching…


    Original artwork by Mark O’Connell (c), used with kind permission

    ‘Well, it’s Christmas time again…’

    Noises in our chimney. Soft and faint, but very definitely noises. And very definitely coming closer. Like what you’d expect to hear when a large and not particularly slim person is about to use the chimney to transport a stately gift box down from the rooftop right into CBn-house’s offices. Not much longer now…

    Until then’s team wishes everybody

    A Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year



    Grateful thanks to Mark O’Connell, author of Catching Bullets, for the kind permission to use above artwork.

  9. Bond, a t-shirt, 60 hours (and a bit of small change)

    The new CBn fan t-shirt, available only for a short time

    The CBn fan t-shirt ‘KEEP CALM AND CALL BOND‘ will only be available for two more days. For the price of just $ 15.00 you get a Hanes Tagless Tee in – almost – British Racing Green, with a spectacularly cool tagline, devised by CBn forum members themselves. At the time of writing this a mere 13 further orders are needed to meet the goal. Want to make a beloved one happy? Need a little gift for Easter? Do you feel calm and in a calling mood? This is the article you are looking for.

  10. A look back at the Oscars “tribute” to 007



    Last week at the Oscars they put together a small celebration of James Bond. Seeing as last year marked fifty years of 007, this seemed appropriate. Rumors quickly spread that every Bond actor would show up onstage together, now while this was a nice thought. I never really expected it to happen. What I didn’t expect however, is what we ended up with.
