We need to talk about America’s Next Top Model

This post is going to seem wildly off topic. I’m sure it will garner easy trolls, as well as people who don’t think they’re trolling but feel I’ve made a Serious Lapse In Taste of which I’ll need to be … Continue reading

National Flash Fiction Day

Apparently, it’s National Flash Fiction Day. So, I wrote you some flash. The Monster Under My Bed It turns out there really are monsters under the bed. Which is an odd thing to discover at the age of thirty-four. I … Continue reading

Review: Hannibal, Season One

So, this is a show, then. Wow. In my post-Game-of-Thrones-what-do-you-mean-we-have-to-wait-a-whole-year-for-the-next-episode daze I was fumbling around for something to absorb me in my ‘off’ hours. I don’t tend to turn to trash-TV to turn off. I mean, I’ve enjoyed the odd … Continue reading

Review: Game of Thrones, Season 3 (Contains Spoilers)

Review – Star Trek: Into Darkness

Apologies

Apologies, all. I forgot how messed up and stressed I am in a heady instant of over-estimating my abilities and sense of self-worth. So, I’m cancelling Project Super Dead Fish. I think only about 7 people viewed the page anyway. … Continue reading

On Dowager Countesses and Queens of Thorns

We love them, don’t we? The old biddies carrying AK-47s of wit and scatter-bombs of scathing put-downs, but… lately, I’m getting depressed by it all. I’m depressed because of why we love these women and why we allow them to … Continue reading

I would just like to express my undying love for VlogBrothers

I could call this a review, but it’s more like a sonnet, except that it’s not written in any kind of verse form, so it’s missing one of the most defining features of sonnets and is thus not a sonnet … Continue reading

Review: Doctor Who: Journey to the Centre of the TARDIS

Well, that was the best episode of Doctor Who we have seen in a very long time. It was near perfect in execution, nodded to a past that charts back before 2005, and had some deep, troubling and interestingly explored … Continue reading
