Castlevania On Netflix Is Brutal And Awesome

What’s up? Got nothing to watch, so you’re reading my blog? Well, I’m happy that you’re here, but if you haven’t watched the Castlevania series that Netflix just released, I suggest you get over there and watch it. A quick warning before you type those magic words into Google – if you’re not one for…

Huzzah! It’s Beer Day Britain / National Beer Day!

Good lord, it’s National Beer Day in the UK. Or, as Twitter seems to prefer, #BeerDayBritain. Why? Because that’s the name of Beer Day Britain – the website that created the holiday in 2015, to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta. Wait, hang on – the Magna Carta? The one…

Sweet Jesus, I love mash-ups

Seriously, is there anything better than someone taking two tracks from two different musical genres and just –smushing- them together like an overethusiastic shipper at Comic Con? Here’s a couple of my favourite mash-ups for your pleasure, sorted into two lists of stupid and just plain incredible. Feel free to share any of your own…

Review: VicTsing 3 In 1 Clip-On Lens Kit

Less than a decade ago, it would be ridiculous to bother spending anything on a gadget that enhanced your smartphone photos. I only have to look back in my Pictures folder to see the terribly focused, grainy shots I took in university. Resolutions were smaller then, and so were phones – the tech just hadn’t…

Do Smartphone Lens Clips Work With Dual Camera Smartphones?

I Googled this question a few days ago, and couldn’t find a satisfactory answer for it. So, I decided to drop some pennies on Amazon, and run my own experiments to ascertain whether a dual camera-equipped smartphone – such as my Honor 8 – would be able to work with a lens clip kit, such…

Music I’m Enjoying – June 1st, 2017

I would be the first to note that I have something of an eclectic taste in music. Indeed, I often am the first person to notice, since few people actually seem to care what my tastes in music actually are. Needless to say, this irks me awfully. Fortunately for me, I have a blog (even…

Wil Wheaton, Acting, Blogs… damn it, Wesley.

A lot has been added to Netflix recently. A lot has been added that I’ve really enjoyed watching: Castle, Thor, Captain America… and after checking last night, Star Trek: The Next Generation has been added to that list. And that’s reminded me to add something else my to-do list for today. So I sit here, TNG in the…

“Jesus? Jeeeeesus? Nah, just based off these older messiahs, mate.”

Sometimes, the Internet is like chatting with people in a pub. Sometimes, you’ll get pearls of wisdom. But more usually, you get badly researched crocks of shit, based more on opinion than actual fact. So I came across a picture that claimed the idea of Jesus was based on older messiah-figures. Nothing wrong with that. You…

Do I hate Dan Brown’s writing? Maybe.

I’m not sure whether to go full out and hate Dan Brown’s boring, repetitive and predictable novels. Whenever I talk about The Da Vinci Code, Deception Point or any of his other books, it’s quite clear that I harbour a certain distaste for his prose. So why is it I can’t seem to cross the…
