Fighting Fit – The Climb #134

Sunday 4th June 2016 Today was my first time swordfighting since before Chasepalooza.  I managed to wake up in time but still felt a bit out of it.  So I really wasn’t expecting much.  In fact, I reckoned I was so out of shape that it might be best to give today a miss. But… [...]

The Self-Doubt Of A Writer On The Verge – The Climb #62

Friday 24th March 2017 Today was a day of doubt and a lesson in patience. The day job was a bit busy today.  I seem to have run out of youtube videos from the people I follow, and so the day seemed to drag.  I then had to go grocery shopping, cook dinner and get [...]

Confessions Of A Horror Movie Wimp

I’ve talked before about how rubbish I am with horror movies. Let’s face it, I’m an embarrassment to my hardcore-horror friends. I immerse myself so deeply that a quick cut to anything, be it zombie or kitten, makes me jump out of my seat and as a result breaks the immersion. As a result the [...]

Fan Made Final Fantasy Advent Children Trailer

There are elements of anime that I absolutely love. The hyper-reality where everyone's abilities are ramped up to superhero proportions, huge frickin' swords and the way that fantasy and SF mix as if it's no big deal. Japanese storytelling is very different to the 3 act structure you commonly find in the west and as [...]
