Bohemian Rhapsody…finally!

After a few false starts, I finally got to see the Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, last night. It was incredibly moving and, for this forty-something, brought backs floods of memories of my eighties childhood. First off, I acknowledge that liberties are always taken when it comes to someone's life stories on screen. Economies are made ...

Read more comics, while saving money?

I recently started using a new app to keep on top of my finances. It’s called Moneyhub and it’s the best. But how has it saved me money? And what’s that got to do with reading comics? Combined with a new current account at Starling, the instant notifications and automatic categorisation of my expenditure gives ...

For your listening pleasure

My walking commute means listening to a lot more podcasts. Here are three I recommend...

Too much good TV?

I've been a very bad boy. Well, if my TV viewing habits are anything to go by. I'm so behind in terms of all the shows I enjoy watching. While that in itself isn't necessarily a bad thing, as I could probably do with less screen time full stop, it leaves me with the worry ...

Looking forward to ‘Altered Carbon’

I thoroughly enjoyed Richard Morgan's 'Altered Carbon' and was excited to hear it was being adapted for TV in the form of a Netflix show. I love good, well thought out sci-Fi and this book has it in spades. Set five hundred years in the future, humans have developed the technology that allows us to ...

Dipping my toe in the podcasting pond again…

Hopefully nobody out there recalls my pretty disastrous attempt at creating a podcast. It turned into a real chore, due to all the work involved. And finding the time to record in a quiet environment was just proving impossible. And so, like many many podcasts before it, my podcast withered on the vine. But I'm ...

So. Many. Avengers.

Marvel released their trailer for the next Avengers movie. And it is EPIC. It's worth watching it a few times, just to spot all the different characters. I mean, we've got Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, Thor, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Panther...the list goes on. https://youtu.be/6ZfuNTqbHE8 While the trailer itself looks stunning,  have one big ...

Star Trek: Discovery goes out on a bang!

Wow. I'm not sure how to describe how I felt once last night's episode of Star Trek: Discovery was over. I mean, I knew it represented a mid-season pause in the schedule, with no new episodes until January. So that meant a little disappointment. Note: some spoilers below! In fact, many spoilers below.  Disappointment at the scheduling ...

Star Trek: Discovery renewed for a second season!

Excellent news, fellow geeks: Star Trek: Discovery has been confirmed for a second season. That nagging doubt at the back of my mind that we would only get one season - for any number of reasons - has evaporated, and I can enjoy the show more than ever. Just in time, too, as last night's ...
