Books that would make *amazing* video games

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 […]

Halsey’s ‘Manic’ shows us another side of Ashley (Album Review)

Halsey Manic Album Review Download free mp3 halsey badlands halsey new album 2020 review

Halsey is back! From her brilliant debut ‘BADLANDS’ to her stable follow-up ‘hopeless fountain kingdom’, the electro singer-songwriter has shown the world that she’s not here to fuck around. Hopes were high for her third studio album, after experiencing a crazy amount of success so early in her career. With my ears considerably intrigued, I took a delve into the world of Halsey’s ‘Manic’… In short, ‘Manic’ is a genre-bending, feature-heavy introspective look at the singer behind the musical persona. On this record, Halsey warps genre to make it fit her sound and her own […]

King Calaway deserve a crown for their debut album ‘Rivers’

King Calaway Rivers Album Download Review Nashville

King Calaway are something special. Really. From crafting a debut album that most intrepid, fresh-faced artists could only dream of, to singing the album in one take, there’s no denying that King Calaway are going to soar. The six-man band – with no lead singer, they all share the limelight – are set to release their first album ‘Rivers’ in the UK in March this year, and it’s something to behold… Opening up with the raucous ‘No Matter What’, ‘Rivers’ begins with a fist-pounding, anthemic track that just begs to be played through booming arena […]

Margo Hanson went from being comic relief to becoming the best character in ‘The Magicians’

‘The Magicians’ is one of the best shows on television – at least in my humble opinion. From the wondrous way it subverts fantasy tropes to the fast-moving, intriguing plot, there’s a little something in this fantastic show for everyone. If you know me, you’ll know that I love a strong female character. Thankfully, ‘The Magicians’ has them in heap loads. From the no-shit taking Kady to the subtlety headstrong Alice, there’s no shortage of feminist icons. One character though, stands head and shoulders above the rest: High King Margo Friggin’ Hanson. The main reason […]

‘RHONY’ just isn’t the same if you’re not guzzling bottles of wine (specifically, Ramona’s pinot), is it?

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 […]

‘Star Wars’ is an iconic part of any geek’s life. From the hum of the lightsaber to the sound of a blaster firing, each and every part of ‘Star Wars’ has impacted three generations of movie-goers – despite how you may feel about its latest release. If you’re anything like me, you love a little bit of trivia. Y’know, the little tidbits of information about our favourite films that trickle out after release, adding a little depth and humanity to the movies. ‘Star Wars’ is an interesting trivia hole to delve down, as George Lucas […]

‘The Magicians’ is one of the best fantasy shows ever made. Here’s why…

The Magicians TV Show SyFy review think piece any good anaylsis margo high king magicians season 5

If you like the fantasy genre, you’ll like ‘The Magicians’. If you love subverted tropes, strong female characters and an ironic take on the concept of ‘whimsy’, you’ll love ‘The Magicians’. The TV show, based on the first book of the same name, has been described as being a ‘Harry Potter’ – but for adults, booze-guzzling, cynical adults. In my view, it is that, yes, but so much more… Disclaimer: I read the book trilogy about two years ago and devoured them. It’s rare that I get engulfed in a book so quickly, but there […]

‘The Rise of Skywaker’ is full of flaws – but I don’t give a damn

There we have it! After nine core films, two spin-offs and over forty years in the making, ‘Star Wars’, as we know it, has come to an end. The internet as a whole has been widely divisive on this new trilogy, and not without merit. The trio – even including ‘The Force Awakens’ has been littered with issues, ranging from pacing to plot. But, honestly? I don’t give a damn.   ***There’s gonna be some big ol’ spoilers ahead for ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ – so if you haven’t seen it yet, look away now*** […]

Hello blogger friendos from the four corners of the internet (and hey to you too, little bots, I see you!). So, we’re at the end of another year. Crazy, right? It feels like just yesterday I was navigating crispy January mornings, accompanied by the cooing tones of Lana Del Rey whispering through my ear. But alas, the year has ended, as they always tend to do… And what a wild year it’s been. On a personal note, I’ve been to Las Vegas and saw my absolute fave person in the world Lady Gaga, which was […]
