I’ve Seen The Future…..(It’s Not Just Me!)

It’s February and it’s been 8 days since my last post. This sounds like the beginning of a Bloggers Anonymous session, except rather than being a mantra of success it’s rather a reflection of how I seem to have ran out of steam somewhat since following the Zero To Hero challenge. If I’m honest IContinue reading “I’ve Seen The Future…..(It’s Not Just Me!)”

Alas Poor Books…..

Ok, I think I have a problem. I think I may be a book hoarder. It’s the only conclusion I can come to. Having recently spent time re-arranging shelves to make space for some new books I’ve seen how many are currently still unread. Now when I say unread, that covers everything from not evenContinue reading “Alas Poor Books…..”

Family – Weekly Photo Challenge

For todays Zero To Hero task we had to take part in an event or challenge. I decided to enter this into the Weekly Photo Challenge. Unfortunately I can’t remember what these are. Knew I should have taken a picture of the sign! Any ideas? Edit:now pretty certain it’s a family of Marmot’s.

Just One Person – A review of “Jim Henson: The Biography”

If you enjoy biographies and you love The Muppets then you can’t go wrong with this. I still can’t believe I only found it by accident when wandering aimlessly round Waterstones one Sunday afternoon. As a big fan of the work of Jim Henson I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It covers his entire career tellingContinue reading “Just One Person – A review of “Jim Henson: The Biography””

The Eyes Have It – (Zero To Hero: Day 12)

It’s Day 12 of the Zero To Hero challenge and I’m linking back to two blogs I have left comments on. Both blogs are related to a topic that is close to my heart and both in their own way make the same link to their subject matter. The eyes of an Orang-utan. This hasContinue reading “The Eyes Have It – (Zero To Hero: Day 12)”

Spielberg Revisited no1 – The War Of The Worlds (2005)

BEWARE: It you have not seen this film there are SPOILERS! ahead. Spielberg’s War Of The Worlds is a 21st century re-telling of the classic novel by H.G. Wells, relocating the core of the story from Victorian England to present-day east coast U.S.A. On re-watching the film I realised I had forgotten how tense theContinue reading “Spielberg Revisited no1 – The War Of The Worlds (2005)”

The Circle Is Now Complete

If, like me, you love all things “Making Of”, then J. W. Rinzlers “The Making Of Return Of The Jedi” is for you. And when I say “Making Of” I mean true “Making Of” books that tell everything about a films production warts and all, rather than just pure promotional guff that tells you howContinue reading “The Circle Is Now Complete”

The Blog Of Something

Today it’s day 3 of Zero To Hero and following the lead of today’s task I’m revisiting a draft I originally wrote back in May 2013 at a time when finding something to say seemed to be increasingly difficult. As it stood it was only three paragraphs long and incomplete. Of those three paragraphs onlyContinue reading “The Blog Of Something”
