May the 4th. For many it will be remembered as the date of the Battle of Tewkesbury in the War of the Roses, the date that King Charles II ordered the construction of the Royal Greenwich Observatory, or for being Cesc Fabregas's birthday.

But for those with a touch...

A long time ago (OK, a month or so), in a galaxy far, far away (Fine, West London), I arrived at the Showmasters London Film and Comic Con at the Kensington Olympia. Here I witnessed a clash of lifestyles and ideals not seen since the Jedi and the Sith, Aliens...

On 3 April, 2016, Erik Bauersfeld passed away at the age of 93, at his home in California. I was lucky enough to spend some time with Erik last year and I'll never forget it. He was the man behind the voices of Star Wars characters Admiral "It's a Trap!"...

Breaking Good: The Secret Life of RJ Mitte

(0) Comments | Posted 1 April 2015 | (00:00)

There's only one episode left of Better Call Saul - sad face - and it's got me all nostalgic about the time I met Breaking Bad's RJ Mitte AKA Walt Jr (AKA Flynn). Actually, when I say 'nostalgic', it was only actually a couple of weeks ago, I just don't...

Professor Green, In the Study, With the Silver Bullets

(0) Comments | Posted 30 October 2014 | (23:00)

The popular rapper Professor Green recently confessed to me that he thinks he might be a WEREWOLF!! More on that later.

But first, with All Hallow's Eve this week, I thought there'd be no better time to sit down and think about my favourite monster. Vampires are...

Over the last few weeks, Steven Gerrard announced his retirement from international football, the Monty Python team performed their last shows at the O2, and The Rolling Stones performed some more gigs as part of their latest world tour™.

Neknoms and Death Stars: A Lethal Cocktail

(4) Comments | Posted 28 February 2014 | (23:00)

I was recently neknominated by a friend. For those of you who have been living on a desert island (that has no internet access) for the past couple of months, Neknominate is an internet-spread drinking game whereby the nominated drinks a pint of alcohol (often beer) and then passes on...

The Great British Porn Off

(0) Comments | Posted 23 January 2014 | (15:27)

I felt a little insulted when 'asked' to write a piece about internet-pornography and the recent findings by website 'PornHub' into British search habits.

Granted, I suppose I fit the criteria for a typical 'user' - I'm a single 20-something male, with no long-term relationships to my name, and I spend...

Christmas and Me

(0) Comments | Posted 20 December 2013 | (23:00)

Christmas seems to get longer every year. I noticed that shopping-channel BidTV started flogging Christmas decorations in September ("Only three more pay-days till Christmas!" !?), Christmas cards started appearing in the shops around August (doesn't matter to me, I've got some left over from last year) and the Christmas lights...
