Two years of blogging: What I’ve learnt (and tips for fellow bloggers)

Two Years Blogging Stats Tips for Bloggers how to get views

Two. Whole Years. Seven-hundred-and-thirty-one days. That’s a hell of a long time. All that time ago, way back then, I thought it’d be a great idea to start up a blog. Rather than letting day after day pass me by and wishing on a star that I’d be a writer, I decided to actually do something. I created a little corner of the ever-growing internet just for me. A place where I could write about geek culture and relish in pursuing my creative passion of writing. After all: how hard could it be?  As it turns out, […]

Why Matt Smith is my favourite Doctor

Matt Smith 11th Doctor favourite best doctor 11 TARDIS season 5 matt smith appreciation 11

All good things must come to an end, I guess. In a show like ‘Doctor Who’ the cast, tone, actors and settings change at the drop of a hat, trawling through different show-runners and lead actors like there’s no tomorrow. It’s unique in this way – no other show does anything like it, but sometimes I can’t help but get a little nostalgic for times long since passed. As I’m watching season 12 of ‘Doctor Who’ unfold currently, I can’t help but miss some of the old faces that once graced our screens. And, for […]

‘The Good Place’ is over and I have a lot of feelings

Everything is most definitely not fine! ‘The Good Place’ is over, and the series finale felt as though it ripped out a part of my heart, tore it into tiny, little pieces and stomped it into the ground. I mean, how am I meant to get through my working week without having a binge-sesh of ‘The Good Place’ to look forward to at the end of the day? With that said, at least the show ended on a high note. I’d rather a show came to a graceful end and bowed out on a high […]

Next gen gaming is so close I can almost taste it. With both tech giants gearing up to release their latest gaming consoles, the internet is rife with rumours. With a supposed ‘leak’ hitting the web, we might have just got our first look at price, design and release date for the highly anticipated PS5. If the leaks are anything to go by, it won’t be long before we have our hands on the powerful beast.   How much will the PS5 cost? If the leaks are to be believed, the price tag is $500, […]

Books that would make *amazing* video games

books that should be video games video games based on books ps4 controller books fantasy book geek blog geeky blogger uk blog books video games 2020

Ah, books and gaming – my two passions in life. Why hasn’t anyone thought of bringing the two together more often? I guess that turning the fantastical ideas trapped within the confines of the written word into a physical, interactive experience is no easy feat. Words into artwork. Dialogue into acted, actual lines. Imagination-based lore into a realm you can explore… It’s a hard line to walk, where many have tried and failed. But the successes are great. ‘The Witcher’ series, for example – going from book to game to TV show, a viral phenomenon […]

‘RHONY’ just isn’t the same if you’re not guzzling bottles of wine (specifically, Ramona’s pinot), is it? I mean, there’s not much point if you’re not cliiiiipping all of your gal pals and swirling your arms around like some sort of deranged music conductor by the end of it, ala Dorina style. That’s why I came up with the Totally Legit RHONY Drinking Game™. Grab your favourite gal pals, get a season ready to binge, and get that vino at the ready… The drink, of course, is up to your discretion, but for the full […]

The little details on ‘reputation’ that I love

taylor swift reputation 2 years on taylor swift reputation release date reputation little details trivia

Can you believe it’s been two whole years since ‘reputation’ was released? That’s right, Swifties, today is ‘reputation’s birthday; Taylor Swift’s equivalent of dying your hair black and going through an angsty teenage phase (and I mean that in the best way possible). Happy birthday, ‘rep’! Taylor’s sixth album was a massive success, breaking records, selling two million copies in its first week and spanning a global mega-tour. The album itself is filled with little nuances that I adore, from clever pieces of production, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and little oddities that make it one of my […]

What will the next decade have in store for video games?

As the decade draws to a close, I can’t help but look back at the technological leaps we’ve managed to overcome in the past ten years. Back at the rear end of 2009, we had many memorable titles bursting onto our screens: Dragon Age Origins, Assassin’s Creed II, Borderlands, Uncharted 2, Modern Warfare 2 – most of which have become a staple of the quality and love that’s put into the art of video gaming. Way back then, you’d have found me peeled to my treasured PS3, having only just bought one in order to […]

I know, I know. Another ‘Joker’ review. We all need one of those, right? Especially when the internet is choked full of think pieces on mental health and violence and yadayadayada… But hey, y’know what? Deal with it, because ‘Joker’ really is that good. And it’s worth talking about. With an unforgettable performance from Joaquin Phoenix, fantastical direction from Todd Phillips and a dazzling script, ‘Joker’ isn’t your standard villain origin story, not by any stretch of the imagination…   *Just a heads up, there’s gonna be spoilers ahead*   When we found out there […]

Monsters, can you believe it’s been an entire year since ‘A Star Is Born’ was released?! Time flies when you’re listening to a multi-time Grammy winner, apparently. Incase you’ve been living under a rock, the third reiteration of ‘A Star Is Born’ features Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper as lovers – with Bradley’s character Jackson Maine – country superstar – dealing with alcoholism, while Lady Gaga’s character Ally deals with going from dive-bar singer to full-on musical mogul.
