Bleurghhh! I’m having such a busy time at the moment! Lots of work to do, thinking about jobs on top of that and the weeks are flying by. I can’t believe we’re almost hitting November – has anybody seen 2012? So, this post is literally worse than useless, but I just wanted to stick my head above the water.
Oh, and also I saw The Perks of Being a Wallflower this week which I really enjoyed. Wasn’t really sure what to expect, as I haven’t read the book, but I heard good things about it and it didn’t disappoint.26 October 2012
It’s been a while since I wrote something here. How did that happen?! I have no idea. I have a couple of things to report, about my recent life, Brendan Rodgers being appointed Liverpool manager, The Amazing Spider-Man and a word on the current unavailability of the springfield connection. Mind-blowing stuff, I think you’ll agree.Noteworthy There's more 23 July 2012
I’ve been meaning to write this for a month now, but first I was busy, and then I’ve been too lazy to do anything. Any regular reader (if such a person exists) will know that Miike Snow are one of my favourite bands, and their new album Happy to You was released last month. This post is a lazy review – in that, I’m literally going to go through every track and review them one by one. I’m taking this lazy approach because, after a huge recent project at university, I can’t be doing structured writing! Read on, won’t you?Noteworthy There's more 15 April 2012
Watched a brilliant film last night, called Boy A. It’s a few years old, but one of my friends suggested it a while ago and I’ve only just got round to watching it. It tells the story of a child killer being released back into society, with a new identity.
The power of the film is its simplicity. Andrew Garfield does a fantastic job of portraying a man troubled by his own past, appreciating the simple things in life for the first time. The story is really interesting, revealing in flashbacks what happened earlier in his life, and you feel real sympathy with somebody trying to wipe his slate clean. Really thought provoking, and one of the best films I’ve watched recently.19 March 2012
So, it’s been a little while since I have had anything worthwhile to write about, or more importantly the time to write it. But, all of my work is handed in and I’ve got a little bit of free time now before my lectures restart. And hey, look what I got for Christmas! Fair to say it is a little bit amazing.

I am absolutely loving David Attenborough’s new show, Frozen Planet. I’m not always a fan of nature documentaries, but I watched Planet Earth a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I heard this had the same sort of scale, so I gave it a go and it’s one of my favourite shows of the year. The images they get are absolutely stunning, and I find it incredible that they manage to capture some of the moments they do. Absolutely brilliant.3 November 2011
Finally got to see Deathly Hallows part 2 yesterday – and it was definitely worth the wait. The epic battles and a sense of massive scale made this a fitting conclusion to one of the most successful film series of all time. Beware of spoilers.Noteworthy There's more 20 July 2011
I finally, finally got to see Toy Story 3 yesterday. And it was amazing. I had huge expectations for the film – I have grown up with the series, and it almost feels like the end of my childhood – but I went into the screen knowing that Pixar would rise to the challenge. Is there anything that studio cannot do?Noteworthy There's more 4 August 2010
Time for answers…or is it? The sixth and final season of Lost has finally kicked off, with the promise that the show would finally start to answer the questions it has thrown up over the years. Spoilers ahead.Noteworthy There's more 13 February 2010
Is it a bit late to say happy new year? I’d think so. This was originally intended to be the cover story for the first edition of Bite. I thought I may aswell put it up to fill the gap in blog posts.Noteworthy There's more 24 January 2010
