Love Day Rant

untitled

I hate Valentine’s Day with a passion. A passion I could never muster on the actual day which is ironic really. There’s no good reason for me to be all bah humbug about it, I just really resent the pressure applied to us all AGAIN to pull fairy dust and rainbows out of our arses to […]

Feminist Film Month: Arranged (Film) Review

arranged_02

I’m going to go light on the intro this week because I’m pretty sure this month’s theme speaks for itself. Yes, it’s Feminist Film Month up in this joint (also over at Jill’s).

I was going to do a whole schtick about Blue Monday and my ‘cure’ for such days but, on reading the post back, I realised it was coming off too flippant. Like, ha the cure for any bad day is obviously Jason Momoa’s Instagram, and while I wish more than anything it was that simple, I know […]

header-57e511342ca9c

So January has been dubbed New Year, Nice Things Month (by me) because we all know how truly shitty it is getting back into the swing of it, having to work and adhere to rules while simultaneously dealing with the fallout from Christmas, a nice time admittedly but quite pointless in the long run. Having […]
