Godchecker Competition: Win world music boxsets

July 10, 2011

We love World Music at Godchecker HQ.  Whether it’s traditional acoustic rhythms, funky Afrobeat, chilled-out Buddha Lounge, or Klezmer gypsy madness, world music continually inspires and invigorates us.

Now, thanks to our friends at Nascente, we have a brilliant selection of FIVE world music Beginner’s Guides boxsets to give away to one lucky Godchecker fan. Each boxset features a huge range of artists to really give you the flavour of the contemporary world scene, from the ultra-cool groove of Nuyorican Funk to the atmospheric folky sounds of Scandinavia.

Expect the unexpected and prepare to encounter some of the most dazzling, beautiful, innovative and exciting music you’ve ever heard!

For your chance to win:

Like us on Facebook and share the #bgtcomp message on your wall.

One lucky Godchecker fan will be picked at random later this week. So good luck and get Twitbooking!


Polishing, Tinkering, Purging

May 28, 2011

This year we have oodles of plans to take Godchecker into new and invigorating dimensions. (Did someone say the word ‘app’?)

To help make this all happen, we’ve been extraordinarily busy behind the scenes tinkering and polishing the Holy Code. You’ll notice a few tweaks here and there – hopefully nice ones that don’t break your browser into little pieces. Most importantly of all we are actively updating the Database of All Known Gods, correcting mistakes, fixing glitches and purging unsightly pustules wherever we find them.

To get things going, we’ve just updated the entire African Mythology section. Several erroneous entries have been zapped and many little errors have been fixed. Work continues, so if you find any mistakes please let us know.

And don’t forget you can give us instant feedback via Twitter or Facebook.

Feed of the Gods

January 22, 2011

The Godchecker Technical Kludge Department is pleased to announce the relaunch of our official Twitter feed.

Our boffins have been working hard behind the scenes without the benefit of sleep, cake or any formal training in health and safety to bring your your daily Godfix. Head over to http://twitter.com/Godchecker.

Also in the pipeline is a Facebook feed. If you are interested in such a thing, let us know!


Godchecker the Third

June 21, 2010

Today, on the very pinnacle of the Summer Solstice, we unleash the brand new Godchecker site on an unsuspecting interweb.

This is the third major version of Godchecker since we began back in 1999. The first version was embarrassingly primitive, but the second was quite clever for its time, even sporting pseudo Web 2.0 features – before Web 2.0 was even invented.

It’s been our aim to revamp the site for a while. A lot has changed since the last upgrade. Gone are the days of browser wars and incompatibility hell; now there are such things as widescreen monitors, iPads and CSS3. What a wonderful thing is technology. We thank all the Gods for inventing it.

Please let us know what you think of the new look site. We will be adding more bits and pieces over the next few weeks, so your feedback will really help us. If there’s anything you love or hate, let us know!

Odds, Sods and Gods

New ‘modern’ pantheon in the pipeline

By extraordinarily popular request – via email, twitter and clay tablet hurled through our windows on a regular basis – we are planning to add a new pantheon to Godchecker.

This pantheon will include Gods, Goddesses and spiritual beings of the modern world. Finally we will have a suitable home in our Holy Database for the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the Invisible Pink Unicorn, Athe (God of Atheists), JR “Bob” Dobbs , Tolkien and Cthulu entities and maybe even some Twitter Gods of our acquaintance.

This is probably the most exciting thing to happen to Godchecker since yesterday. We are temporarily calling this new pantheon ‘Goddities’. Feedback most welcome.

If our loyal followers have any suggestions for modern, fictional or otherwise apocryphal Gods we can include, please feel free to drop us a suggestion in the comments, or tweet us.

The Gods get blogged

May 9, 2010

By popular demand — and because the Gods told us to — Godchecker is now available in handy pocket-size blog format.

This will give a greater opportunity for us to dazzle our loyal followers and acolytes with Godly snippets straight from the Holy Snail’s orifice. Updates, projects, plans and sneak previews will all be displayed herein for your glorious gratification. Probably. Just as long as our Kludgemeister figures out which button to press…
