Half-Marathon training starts this week

On the 16th October this year I will be taking part in my second half-marathon. This will be the same route in Birmingham, UK. The last time I did it, which was last year, I managed to strain my knee whilst training as I tried running too far, too fast, too soon. This time I…

Star Trek Beyond was pretty good

Today me and my good lady went to see the new Star Trek film, Star Trek: Beyond. I had no expectations for it – I was neither excited or anticipating it to be bad; I just went and watched a film at the cinema. And as it turned out I enjoyed it. This film felt like…

Mustang E.P. by Hannah Grace

This E.p. just exploded into my ears in a way that reminded me of later-era White Stripes. The opening song is hugely-energetic that doesn’t let up for a second. It’s labelled as “pop” on my music subscription but I don’t think that does this E.P. justice. It’s got a chugging, powerful groove that would strangle…

Scary Mary Trailer

If you thought Mary Poppins was all sweet and friendly — think again. This trailer reveals a dark underbelly of horror within the original footage of the film Mary Poppins.

So now I have re-installed Windows 10 with the vain hope of it working fine. One thing I didn’t actually think about during my immature rage yesterday, was to debug the issue –…

We’re the Same by Priest

I can’t tell you how happy I was when I heard that Priest were releasing this new song. “We’re The Same” has that signature “Priest” sound that I have come to love from their eponymous debut album. It sounds as though Madeline is pushing her voice further in this song – and to powerful effect….

Goodbye Windows, It’s been nice

When I say nice, the only nice thing was being able to install and play steam games and have them run at great frame rates. The trade off however was that not only was all of my computing being sent off to Microsoft servers, but also the frustrating Blue Screen of Death, which happened far…

The New Thirty Three

For the past seven or eight months or so I’ve been writing on a website I also built, called The New Thirty Three. I built it a while back and have only recently started writing more often on it. I am now trying to put together a planned release scheduled for future reviews as well…
