My First Day in Firewatch – A Write Up

Earlier on today I bought Firewatch for P.C. after hearing great reviews about it. Those reviews so far seem to be spot on. My first day in Firewatch was an interesting one. The opening intersects a multiple-choice backstory for the main character with his trekking to his new place of work. The telling of this…

My taste in music and how it’s grown over the years

In the beginning Growing up with great parents, I took a lot of my early tastes in music from them – my Dad specifically. But through growing up and exploring new styles, my taste in music has grown significantly. I started by hearing bands like Fleetwood Mac; Supertramp; Meat Loaf; Whitesnake; to name a few,…

The World’s Greatest Juggling Otter!

Yep you read that correctly. This is the world’s greatest juggling Otter, or at least the greatest one I’ve ever seen. This Otter manages to keep his little stone up for nearly a whole minute! Otter has mad juggling skills.

I just made my first penny on Google Adsense

At the bottom of my sidebar I’ve got a little Adsense advert, which I’m not proud of, but you know what? I’d like to make a bit of extra money from my site. I just logged into my Adsense account and found that I’ve made £0.01 – yep; that’s a penny. Even though it’s the…

On the train again

I’ve just started up my train direct debit again. I already know how terrible the trains are for my journey but I’m going to give it another shot in the interest of saving money on the petrol I’m currently spending. I’ll probably get annoyed after day one but we’ll soon see. They never even checked the…

Started watching Stranger Things

I watched the first episode of Stranger Things tonight and I loved it. It felt just how I thought it would after hearing loads of people describing it. To me it felt like Steven Spielberg meets John Carpenter with lots of other sprinklings of 80s dust. Even the way that the lift opens and closes in…

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…
