The Abyss

Kath recently talked about how blogging sometimes feels like screaming into the void and it’s got me to thinking about my own motivations. I agree to a certain extent that sometimes it feels like you’re pouring out your innermost thoughts only to yourself, and maybe one or two other people. I know my mum is my number one fan who often references the things … Read More The Abyss

Oscars 2019 – Thoughts, Hopes & Dreams

I’m quite sure the world is waiting with baited breath to hear what I have to say about this year’s Oscars and who I think should win. So as is traditional, here are my hopes vs. what will probably happen.

Hereditary – Second Viewing

*Slightly spoiler-y* I’ve already reviewed Hereditary here but I managed to catch it again last week, just before it left the theaters in Brighton. I absolutely love it and more so on second viewing. It is such a unique experience and while it isn’t perfect (what the hell is?), it’s a brilliant achievement for Director Ari Aster and his team.  If Toni Collette isn’t nommed in next year’s … Read More Hereditary – Second Viewing

Sun Bores

If there’s one thing worst than melting in the middle of a Great British heatwave, it is having to deal with all the people with Opinions™. If it’s not being bitchy about what people should wear (whether they be too fat, too thin, too pale, too leathery, too made up), it’s what they choose to do to keep cool. Honestly, can you just fuck … Read More Sun Bores

Drag Race Season 10: Everybody Say Love

Anyone else got feelings about this last season of Ru Paul’s Drag Race? Yeah me neither. Except! It’s been a bit of a roller coaster, hasn’t it? Explosive arguments, dubious ejections (imho), conversations about race, gay conversion therapy, more rows, tears and above all fierce as fuck looks across the board. *Spoilers* And now we have our Queen and I’m not that sad about … Read More Drag Race Season 10: Everybody Say Love

Oscars 2018 – Thoughts, Hopes & Dreams

Happy Oscars Day! I’m not sure yet how I’ll be viewing or even when, however I am very excited. In the grand scheme of things I do realise that The Academy Awards don’t really mean that much. I mean, I love them – but most of the films I love from the bottom of my heart could never be honoured by the board and … Read More Oscars 2018 – Thoughts, Hopes & Dreams

Democracy

A big day in the UK today and one I feel quite sick about. For anyone reading outside the UK who doesn’t keep up with our politics, we’re voting on the EU Referendum – whether to leave or remain in the European Union. I cast my vote early this morning and I’ll admit to feeling quite overwhelmed by the whole thing (and I was all … Read More Democracy

Casual Fat Phobia

I’ve recently decided, whenever someone I know on social media makes a casual fat phobic comment, I am going to casually ‘unfollow’. No words, no rage; just a simple click or two of that sweet, sweet button and I’ll be on my way. I can’t take it anymore. Sure, these people have every right to an opinion but don’t they realise what they’re saying? … Read More Casual Fat Phobia

Grabbers (Film) Review

It’s been a few weeks since the last Jillian & Christa’s Great Blog Collab and I, personally, think that’s way too long. I realised, whilst completing this weeks ‘assignment’, that I love the process of choosing/finding out what the new film is, watching and then thinking about it. Then thinking about the next one. B-movies/horror/dubious monster flicks + being a snarky bitch are my life … Read More Grabbers (Film) Review

Ginger Snaps (Film) Review

I have a new favourite film blogger (and movie buddy); it’s Jillian of The Pink Panther Snipes Again. Jillian reviews films on her blog that could be considered a little bit off the beaten track. It’s not like they are all obscure though, Sabrina Goes to Rome and Sabrina Down Under were quite popular TV movies back in the late nineties, though I had … Read More Ginger Snaps (Film) Review

Things & Inc #2

I love doing these posts and I feel I should do them more often, since there are so many great things to think about, even in low key February while it’s frosty out and there’s not much going on. As I’ve previously mentioned, I’m in hibernation mode and it’s been a really fun time to reflect on my blog and reading list, to watch … Read More Things & Inc #2

Big Bother

I’ve done something I haven’t for a very long time this January and I’m not proud of it. I mean we all know I’m a great advocate of the Proud Pleasure but I think this might fall into a whole category of its own. I’m talking Celebrity Big Brother. Reality TV and I have been friends for some time. I was obsessed with the first few … Read More Big Bother
