    Sunrise

    DAY 3: I’m a  recovering addict, trying my best not to sound like an evangelist. It’s a tough ask, some days, especially when the weight of evidence shows how gullible I was. Companies are to blame for feeding addiction, and in due course one can only hope common sense will prevail… but don’t bet on that. […]

    DAY 14: The end of 2018 deserves to be pushed out with a bang. One from the vaults; Here's the KERMODE UNCUT blog from March 2010 which (according to legend) confirmed to TV execs that I was definitely not the droid they were looking for. I still find it funny:https://t.co/98BidsEmwX — Mark Kermode (@KermodeMovie) December 29, […]

    The Race

    Last night, there was a minor epiphany over my gaming lifestyle. In the past year or two I’ve bought a handful of games, none of which have been played with any seriousness, or indeed at all. The reason, of course, is simple; not enough time to do the things that really matter, and still fit in […]

    The Politics of Dancing

    There’s a temptation to just spill the beans completely on my future plans, as I’m totally useless at suspense or keeping secrets, but because I understand that people get interest by drip-feeding information, it is time to say just this. The URL  internetofwords.com now points at my writing site. It’s a play on words (unsurprisingly) […]

    This is Mine

    I’m lying in bed, having coughed and sniffed a tun of green goo out of my body, and the temptation to stay right here is immense, especially as there are no kids to look after. I’m terrible at taking care of myself, when all is said and done. It would be simpler, surely, just to […]
