It’s Valentine’s Day and my corner of the internet is reacting in it’s normal fashion: railing against the crass commercialization, recycling the same old jokes and making smug remarks about how they don’t need one day of the year to make their other half feel special.

As someone who has managed, more by accident than design, to be single on most of the V-Days in my adult life, the fact I have someone to celebrate it with now is something of a novelty. So whilst me and my other half are both working full-time, and I have a punishing three-hour commute after work, we’re going to try and make some time tonight to shut down our PCs, switch off our smartphones and just spend a quiet evening together watching a movie.

And I know for a fact our kittens will ruin it for us.


Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Stuff What I Wrote: Eraserhead

Another dear, long-suffering friend, Donna (who is awesome and you should totally follow) roped me into doing some cult movie reviews for Cultureburn. The catch? They had to be movies I hadn’t seen before. In the end we settled on a list of three, and the first, Eraserhead is now up for your reading pleasure.  In order to give the complete newbie experience, I only allowed myself one viewing of it, and boy was that tough.

Next up is ‘Cabaret’, and that looks like it’ll be significantly less taxing.

Stuff What I Wrote: Identity Thief

My dear, long suffering friend Andrew is a merciless blogging enabler. For years now I’ve had access to his blog’s admin section and carte blanche to write whatever I want. And I’ve done embarrassingly little with it.

In an effort to change that, I’ve done a review of Fanboy Comic’s latest graphic novel: Identity Thief. Go check it out. Or y’know, don’t.

Clutch – Earth Rocker

There is no band I love more than Clutch, and there is no album I am looking forward to this year than Earth Rocker.

New Style, New Header

Still figuring out how I want this to look. Changed the style again and added a picture of one of my two adorable kitties, Bibi. It was the coolest landscape-aspect photo I could find.

Hello and Welcome.

I’ve been too long out of the blogging game. I intend to use this to record my thoughts on books, music, comics, games and the other tedious miscellanea that I use to fill the hours between working and sleeping.

And cat pictures. Lots of cat pictures.
