It’s time I told you what you’ve gotten yourself into…

What makes a person subscribe to a blog?

I personally have never done so, but I imagine the experience is not dissimilar to adopting a kitten. You’re massively enthusiastic about the newly established relationship at first, lavishing the thing with attention. But as time goes on and the kitten gets fatter, you pay less attention to it until eventually it becomes disgruntled and apathetic, tears up all your furniture legs and relieves itself all over the cabbages.

I don’t want my blog to relieve itself all over your cabbages.

The first book I can remember reading was called Scruffy Scroggles and featured a family of monsters, all of whom had 6 eyes and massive black hair. I quite disliked that book. The story was quite good, had something to do the youngest monster going to school, but the book itself had hard corners and I stood on it awkwardly while barefoot one day on my way to the kitchen.

The first film I can actively remember watching was the 1931 version of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. This sticks out particularly well in my mind because it terrified me enough to start carrying a hard plastic toy tractor to bed to protect myself from evil monkeys (which, at the time, was what I thought Mr. Hyde was).

Finally, whereas I can’t remember the name of the first videogame I ever played, I remember it had very distinct Christian overtones. You played as either a monk or a nun and had to fight the minions of evil (all in glorious 8-bit). I tried googling Christian video games to find it, but when I stumbled across “Captain Bible in Dome of Darkness”, I was physically incapable of progressing further. (A real game, I might add, which I plan on reviewing as soon as possible!)

This is a taste of the material you will be subjected to, should you subscribe to my blog.

I aim to review Literature, Film and Videogames, both old and new.
However, within each review, I want to tell a story as well, as seen above.
This is to keep you, the reader, as entertained as possible while gaining truly awful insight into these mediums of story telling.

Thank you for reading this far, I know it wasn’t easy.

  6. Online dating is fast becoming the most effective way for singles
    to meet and date. Online dating services typically permit folks to supply private information then look
    for other people making use of criteria including age range,
    gender and location. Most web sites allow members to upload pictures and browse the photographs of others.
    The objective of on the internet dating websites is to aid folks establish meaningful
    relationships in their personal lives. Sites may supply further solutions, such as webcasts,

    to register at no cost but might supply services which demand a monthly fee.
    Several sites are broad-based, with members from a variety of backgrounds trying
    to find various types of relationships. Other sites are much more particular,
    based on the kind of members, interests, place, or partnership
    desired. U.S. residents spent $469.5 million on on the internet dating and
    personals in 2004, the biggest segment of “paid content” on the web, based on a study performed by the On

  10. I was amazed to encounter such a similar spirit. I love the same kind of minute details, completely irrelevant and utterly useless to anyone that doesn’t understand. Luckily I do. Also: you should be writing reviews professionally. (perhaps you already are?) Last note: who did the background sketch?

    • Apologies for this delay, I’m glad you like the blog.
      Comments such as these make my day (As do marshmallows, but that’s a whole other marshmallow-related story)

      The background is concept art for the game American McGees Alice, so… is possible that it was American McGee
