Shut Up and Let Me See Your Jazz Hands

This song is my second favourite from this album but the most appropriate to this playlist. I enthusiastically encourage you to go and listen to Sing, which is my favourite. And then, when you’re enticed and confused, go check out the rest of the album and its extras. Because this album is a tiny (awesome) post-apocalyptic science fiction […]

Much Ado About Shinies

  So yesterday I celebrated Bastille Day* by going to see Much Ado About Nothing. What do these two things have in common? Absolutely nothing. But as I usually celebrate Bastille Day by forgetting it entirely** I feel this is a step forward. And Much Ado was hilarious. Of Shakespeare’s plays it is, oddly enough, […]

X-Men: Days of Future Past

So we’ve known for some time they were making a sequel to X-Men: First Class. It’s been given the disturbing? entertaining? kinda freaky? rather suggestive? title Days of Future Past. I have been excited/concerned/waiting to see how it’ll turn out. I mean, it could be good. The last set of X-Men movies only turned to disaster on […]

World War Z is book by Max Brooks about the zombie apocalypse, framed as a series of interviews after the fact. Its structure is this brilliant, interlocking thing where each story/interview is complete in itself but the larger story proceeds step by step taking you from the first outbreak to where they are now. It […]

My laptop just kernel panicked itself to death. Which is a really great way to start your day, let me tell you. This is a lesson to us all. Never become complacent. To reinforce this lesson for the rest of you I am going to leave this here:    

Maybe I’ll Just Sit Here And Bleed At You

On Friday I watched this movie Brick. I really liked it. But I’m still trying to figure out what it was exactly. I accidentally made Rick watch it that evening just by talking confusedly at him about it. He made all the same, Whut? faces I did.* It was cool. But didn’t get me noticeably […]

Frankly, Watchin’ Donny Beat Nazis to Death is the Closest We Ever Get to Goin’ to the Movies

So I just finished watching this Tarantino movie, Inglourious Basterds. (Wow, it actually kinda hurts to deliberately spell that wrong. Although ‘wrong’ is really a misnomer in this instance as that’s the correct way to spell the movie’s name but… eh, you know what I mean.) I had forgotten that I tend to really like […]

I am off writing query letters today. Yes, I totally am. Shut up. I’m totally doing it. Right now. Okay, not right now. But like, in a minute. And in the meantime I am going to leave you with some things to entertain you. In case you haven’t heard (although if you’re remotely interested you […]
