Code 8: An interesting take on the Superpowers genre that falls a little flat

Code 8 is one of those movies that you’ve never really heard of until it pops up in your Netflix recommendations, so you give it a go.

Are there any Premier League Clubs still wholly British owned?

I’ve imported some older blog posts of mine from other blogs into this one and going through them I came across this post from 2010 on the sale of Blackburn Rovers to the Indian chicken farmers, the Venkey’s Group.

Cummings can drop as many bombs as he likes on Wednesday – But the people that need to listen, won’t care

First off, let’s be clear about this, Dominic Cummings isn’t the Good Guy here. He’s not on the side of the angels. He’s, I’m afraid, not on your side. Just because he’s likely to start throwing hand grenades at the Worst Prime Minister in History(TM) doesn’t make up for the fact that this is the guy who travelled to Barnard Castle despite national lockdown rules in order to test his eyesight to see if it was up to driving the length of the country (also during the national lockdown).

End of an Era – #ThankYouNuno

I’m in shock. I was going to write a piece this weekend analysing what ‘went wrong’ this year at Wolves, but that no longer seems appropriate—at least, not in the short term.

Jupiter’s Legacy: Super-Slow Superhero series that fails to save the day

Returning to the Blog

My last post here was August last year, following the utter cock-up that the government made of the A-level results. My intention in starting this blog wasn’t really to spend all my time having a go at the failing government—which is good because that be a full-time job such are their failures—but instead it was supposed to be a place to express the thoughts, questions & ideas that swim around in my noggin at a bit more length than Twitter allows.

The Wait is Over

The Truths We Live—the very much long-awaited sequel to 2015’s The Lies We Lead—will hit Amazon Kindle devices on 4th April 2021.

Target Met!

I’m happy to say that I met my self-imposed target of completing the first full read-through of The Truths We Live by this weekend with ease. I actually completed the read-through on Thursday evening.

Fake Social Media in eBooks

If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that my current goal to do a full read through/edit of the first draft of The Truths We Live. As part of this one thing I’m doing is adding fake tweets and text messages to the manuscript. These will carry through into the eBook and while it will make the eBook file larger to do this, I hope it will add to the experience of reading it.
