Waking up this morning and seeing a lovely bit of sunshine has definitely got me off to a great start to the weekend. I got up at eight and took the dog for a walk – the first time I’ve been out of the house for two days and now I’m getting some writing done.…… Continue reading Don’t be SAD
This is the big one. I have such a mancrush on Johnny Depp that my girlfriend has to accept that there is a very real chance that I will give up on a normal life to just follow him until the restraining order prevents me from doing so. I think the first Johnny Depp film…… Continue reading Mancrush Friday – Johnny Depp.
Today my little brother is twenty. I have two brothers (both younger) and today is Edward’s birthday. It makes me feel really old, possibly older than my own birthday did because I remember him being born, I remember carting him down the stairs before he could talk or piss standing up and making him breakfast.…… Continue reading Baby brother.
So I haven’t posted in a couple of days, and the truth is that it is physically hurting me to do so now. My head is spinning, and I feel sick as long as I’m upright. I don’t know what it is exactly, or what it means, but it has given me a good opportunity…… Continue reading Sickboy.
Last night I watched Midnight In Paris and I have to first say that it did not disappoint. People give Allen a hard time for his portrayal of female characters, for making them subservient to the men, for not casting enough attention to them, but I don’t think that’s the case with this film in…… Continue reading I dream of Paris.
I’ve been up since seven, that’s just how I roll. I know I harp on about it all the time but lets go there again. It’s not even half ten yet and I’ve redrafted ten pages of my novel, sorted through a bunch of stuff I’m going to give away to charity, been for a…… Continue reading Early start.
I don’t know what it is about having three days off of work instead of the standard two but it just feels like you can do so much more with that extra day. This weekend I am going to try and redraft a fat chunk of my novel because it’s getting on my nerves being…… Continue reading Bank Holiday plans.
Whenever I see footage of White playing live I’m taken in the same way people are in Red Dwarf when they see Ace Rimmer – I sigh and say ‘what a guy!’ There’s something sexy about guitarists as standard, god knows that’s one of the many reasons I stuck with it but Jack is a…… Continue reading Mancrush Friday – Jack White.
Paraphrasing the brilliant Arcade Fire song so you know it’s going to be good, today I want to talk about plans, and how to set them into action. I would also like to say that this advice is as just as much for me as it is for you. I like ‘get up and go’…… Continue reading Ready To Start.
MASSIVE DISCLAIMER. Don’t read this if you’re planning to watch it, I don’t want to reveal the magic? The first thing it is important to note is that I am a massive Libertines fan and therefore (and rightly so) pledged to have the documentary by Roger Sargent released on DVD. That makes me (and hopefully…… Continue reading There Are No Innocent Bystanders – an almost review.
