We’ve been asked a few times, so we now have a Tumblr. It will be links to the full content on the website and a few other bits and bobs, a bit like what we do with The Twitter but less posts about whatever comics I’m reading and traffic jams.

Ok. I’ve had some time to think. All I’ve been doing is THINKING. And I loved it, a wonderful sci-fi/disaster/horror film. It wasn’t scary. Perhaps it wasn’t meant to be. Sir Ridders back doing sci-fi ; I’m happy. BUT. 3 BIG buts… In descending order.

1) that script was awful. Ideas? Plot? Brilliant. Script? Awful. Trying too hard to make sure we recognise the themes and character beats from Alien (hey man we’re just workers up in space on a job/ hey I’m the crew member that’s all earthy and traditional/ hey I’m the one you shouldn’t trust) and far too much expositional dialogue and supposedly intelligent characters doing ridiculous and inexplicable things (hey let’s try and stroke the weird dangerous looking creature). All of Fassbender’s lines were great somehow, but the rest was shit, and frankly unworthy of the material.

2) Why oh why have actors doing accents? Does the characters nationality REALLY matter? Rapace’s posh-English/occasionally Swedish was so jarring, and I wanted Idris Elba’s cockney tones, not a wonky Tennessee. What’s the point?

3) An actual OAP actor please, not shit rubber wrinkle masks.

Unless you’ve been under a rock you’ll know that A389 dropped a 52 track 2012 sampler featuring The Love Below, Homewrecker, Seven Sisters Of Sleep, Rot In Hell, Ringworm and everybody else that’s good these days. I done a track-by-track review, click the link below if you’ve got a spare 7 hours.

The Midnight Funeral Parlour: Help a brother out...

Good morning people.

Something I have been chasing for many years has just popped up (a Jane Doe) and I really need to free up a whole bunch of pennies, and normally it wouldn’t be an issue, but I have all my money tied up in releases, so I am having a little freak out. Instead, I am selling…

That moment where someone makes something so incredibly awesome for you that all you can do is sit back and listen, with your jaw on the floor, speechless. The best.



Tom, a guy I work with, told me that he was going to make me an acoustic version of “Set it off” by Madball when i was really sad. I told him that would cheer me up immensely.



Never in a million years could I have imagined it would have been as good as this.. and never in my life has someone taken the time out of their life to do something so incredible for me. To say I was blown away would be an understatement.



And if you think I am exaggerating about how good this song is, click the link above (the title of this blog entry) and have a listen yourself. You will understand.

This is SO AWESOME. Everyone should have a listen to this! 

Acoustic version of Madball’s Set It Off. Amazing. Shouldn’t work. But it works real well.

A Filipino Restaurant Nestled At The Foot Of A Waterfall

Filipino Waterfall Restaurant Tables

Asking to be seated at a table with a view is no problem at this Filipino restaurant. Located at the foot of the Labasin Falls in the Quezon Province, diners may enjoy authentic Filipino cuisine and the area’s natural splendor as fresh water streams through their toes. Nature and dining all in one? Now that’s my kind of travel.
