Ten things that make me happy

I recently got tagged by Fed to write my own version of his post '10 things that make me happy". But I got the notification while I was lying on the beach in Sitges, so there was no way I was going to touch the keyboard until I was back here in London. As for ...

Setting up a perfect Saturday.

Yes, I know we're only half-way through the day, but it's shaping up to be rather perfect. I woke up this morning after an epic sleep, feeling rather more human than I have all week. I worked my little ass off in Dublin on Thursday and Friday and, while I was delighted with the result, ...

MacPsych at the Movies: Rogue One

So. This was a long time coming. Or at least that's how it felt. A new Star Wars movie, this time another prequel, just one year on the heels of  Star Wars sequel. Confusing, perhaps, for those of us not steeped in the Star Wars universe and its complex history. But Rogue One does a ...

Old man nap time

It's already being examined ...

Review: Taken 3

Now. Let's get this out of the way quickly. If you have any thoughts about going to see this turkey, let me put you out of your misery: don't bother. It's easily the worst film I've seen in the last 12 months (and I've seen the Mrs. Brown's Boys debacle!). I didn't go to see ...

Review: Gravity

Due to a combination of circumstances, I found myself going to the cinema by myself last night. I'm not sure I've ever done that before. Ever. I went to see "Gravity", with Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. In summary, it was fantastic. But let's get a few gripes out of the way. And they're nothing ...

I’m a “shusher”: out and proud

Let's cut to the chase: I disagree with basically every point made in this article by Anil Dash - even though I can sense he has purposely set out to antagonise people just like me. In essence, he's taking the side of the ass-hats in cinemas who make too much noise, play with their phones ...
