Work Blogging Across the Universe

I've started writing for my work blog and the results have been interesting. I've had some really genuine and lovely feedback from people I don't know very well (as well as close colleagues and friends) - and I've had more than a couple of moments of pure and utter anxiety about whether I've said too… Continue reading Work Blogging Across the Universe

Margarita with a Straw (Film) Review

An Indian coming-of-age tale this week and it's a pretty nice one really. Certainly more joyful than the fucking miserable Duck Butter from last week. Thank God because I was not down for that much introspection again, not for a while anyway. *Spoilers* Margarita with a Straw (2014) IMDB Synopsis A rebellious young woman with… Continue reading Margarita with a Straw (Film) Review

Duck Butter (Film) Review

I've come to the conclusion that I am really not a fan of 'the disintegration of a relationship' movies - or Doom Coms™? This probably says an awful lot about me, that I can't handle the truth, but there it is. Blue Valentine had me cringing and praying for it to end and there have… Continue reading Duck Butter (Film) Review

Sun Bores

If there's one thing worst than melting in the middle of a Great British heatwave, it is having to deal with all the people with Opinions™. If it's not being bitchy about what people should wear (whether they be too fat, too thin, too pale, too leathery, too made up), it's what they choose to… Continue reading Sun Bores

The Firefly (Film) Review

Jill and I settled on Gay July because we've always had pretty good success with LGBTQIA films within the collab - and there are some great ones on Netflix at the moment. So let's kick back with this Colombian love story, shall we? *Spoilers* The Firefly (2013) or La luciérnaga (original title) IMDB Synopsis After… Continue reading The Firefly (Film) Review

Dreams Can Come True (But I really hope they don’t)

I've always been a dreamer but lately (and for a long while now) I've literally been a dreamer - every night I have dreams so vivid I have no fucking clue how to process them. Or even if dreams really do mean half as much as we give them credit for. I'm thinking of getting… Continue reading Dreams Can Come True (But I really hope they don’t)

Weekly Digest – TV Special

While avoiding the World Cup and not watching Love Island, I've been doing far more intellectually significant things, obviously, such as watching these naked, lying under a fan and eating Wispas. GLOW - Season 2 Liberty Bell and friends are back in the ring though things are far from plain sailing for any of them.… Continue reading Weekly Digest – TV Special
