I’m two books ahead of this, so I’m feeling pretty smug right now. Of course, these vlogs are getting less and less views, so I’m pretty sure no one else is as delighted as I am of this swathe of reading. Anyhow, my aim is to get these vlogs shorter, punchier and more fun, especially as the […]Read more "2015 Reading Challenge, Book 5: Ack Ack Macaque by Gareth L. Powell"
That was the long winter, A discontent, A darkness, And as you passed the bones in your hands Became knives to cut out sunlight From blue skies Stone ground cracked under The weight of your feet Their veins of granite spat blood And we bathed Cool and disinterested At the feet of bleeding rock Spring […]Read more "Poetic Interlude: The Long Winter"
As promised, this is week two of mental health Monday (they will be every two weeks, especially as I appear to be cracking through a book every week for the reading challenge).

It being Hitchcock, you’d think I’d struggle with this one. But nope. I have very distinct tastes when it comes to old lugubrious jowls himself. In fact I struggled to name a fifth movie I liked enough to put in that spot. The other four, however, presented an entirely different struggle. My number one spot in […]Read more "Favoured Fives… Hitchcock movies"
Here we go. This was supposed to start last week, but technical difficulties kind of got in the way. MHM are set to be almost entirely vlogs. They’ll be informal, informative (hopefully) and chatty (though not too much). I’ve started here by going over my diagnoses so that anyone who watches these who is suffering […]Read more "MHM AKA Mental Health Monday"
