Wondering

Oh, I struggle with this site, and once again the domain name is up for renewal and I wonder if I should bother paying out the £30 odd a year it takes to keep it up and running. There is a part of me that would like to say ‘sod it’ and do all of […]

Changing tastes

I have always loved dark, twisted books and TV. But there seems to be something happening to my tastes, they are changing quite considerably. I’ve written before about how I can’t watch Game of Thrones, and this same thing is affecting all the TV I watch and even the books I read. I don’t want […]
