It’s Easter… Have An Egg!

April 21, 2014

Easter, the religious festival celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ for the observant is nearly over and for the non-observant, just like Christmas, it’s become an orgy of fat and sugar. For this festival, the fat and sugar orgy comes in the form of an Easter egg. Deep repentance comes later once the scales tip over to fat bastard… until Christmas.

I was in Asda a few weeks ago and as I idly roamed from aisle to aisle, I was confronted with the usual array of Easter Eggs.

Philip Seymour Hoffman R.I.P

February 3, 2014

I was on Twitter when I saw the news breaking on my timeline. I was hoping it was a hoax, like the ‘deaths’ of Jeff Goldblum and Morgan Freeman in recent years. But as the tributes started pouring in, I had to accept, with sadness, that it was all too real. Another drug related death of an actor/musician/whatever. Except that this person wasn’t a ‘whatever’. This person was Philip Seymour Hoffman. He was 46.

And The New Doctor Who Is…

August 7, 2013

The wait is over for Doctor Who fans, and those who have a cursory interest. The man who’s taking the baton from Matt Smith and going on to new adventures as the 12th Doctor was revealed last weekend. His name is Peter Capaldi, a seasoned actor currently best known as the very sweary spin-doctor Malcolm Tucker from the BBC political satire The Thick Of It. Looks like those who were hoping for a female, or black Doctor this time round will have to wait a bit longer.
