forty four!

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

It’s that time again, or nearly anyway – the traditional birthday blog is a day early thanks to tomorrow’s newly planned activities (the original plan of staying in bed all day binge-watching Detectorists and finishing off the last of the Christmas chocolate has been postponed to next weekend) and since I’ve not got round to […]

it’s 2017!

Saturday, January 7th, 2017

…and back to work we go, after a lovely few days spent cosy on the big settee catching up on the Christmas films missed whilst away and busy-busy last week, not least with trips to the Museum of London, Borough Market for supplies and a special evening out to see Lazarus at the Kings Cross […]

off to FrightFest!

Wednesday, August 24th, 2016

Hello from Scarborough! Until the morning, anyway. As most will know it’s been a flying visit and unpack-do laundry-repack situation after spending a lovely and very lazy time in tourist central last week. Possibly the most effort-free part of London in which I’ve ever worked given that everything anybody could really need was pretty much […]

where did the month go?!

Friday, July 15th, 2016

And what a month that was! Events (including not one but two local food festivals), general laziness and an awful lot of football (fifty one games total, four of which helpfully obliged should I have needed another reason to be glad I’m not English) have kept me from posting, but nine hours of TV a […]

off again (phone included)…

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

To Edinburgh that is, and in just shy of an hours’ time – woohoo! Since I missed Glasgow FrightFest earlier this year, Dead By Dawn is my first festival of 2016 as well as my enduring favourite, not least because I get to stay in my favourite budget pod-cave, eat chips every day if I […]

on top of the world!

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

And the days are still flying by! Another day, another month, another tax year – slightly over four weeks ago I was on the plane home from New York after a big lunch at a Korean food-by-weight buffet, a (standing all the way) LIRR ride and a $30 excess baggage fee thanks entirely to the […]

back in that london 2016!

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

And we’re already into February! No real sign of winter yet, although you would never have known this from the temperature within the hotel room last week on my first of many at least two outcalls in 2016 which could have hosted a Bikram yoga class without any extra heating being required. After a similar […]

forty three!

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

Four weeks to the day after Christmas – check. Dark, raining and freezing cold – check. Forty three years on from 22nd January 1973 – it’s my birthday! After the relative peace of this week and a few more adventures in DIY (including a foray into my new favourite activity, the fitting and hairdryer-shrinking of […]

the last horror film(s)…

Thursday, October 22nd, 2015

And it’s my last few hours in Scarborough for a few days – Sheffield’s Celluloid Screams approaches, and with an eminently fabulous line up to wind up my horror festival-goings for this year! For anybody who isn’t going to be in New York, the Leeds International Film Festival still has Night of the Dead and […]

rollin, rollin, rollin…

Tuesday, October 13th, 2015

Well OK, Rollins. Henry Rollins, one of my all time favourite people in the world for more years than I’d like to remember (going on for thirty, anyway) and star of the best new film I’ve seen so far this year – yay! He Never Died was my runaway hit of Grimmfest and not just […]
