Confidence And Planning

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from the internet lately. Not a break from using it, although I probably should do that at some point, but a break from contributing anything more than a handful of tweets and Facebook status updates. You’ll have noticed my blog posts here being few and far between, and my videos even fewer and further between. I’ve been posting regular book reviews, by virtue of sitting down once every few weeks and scheduling…

A Culture Of Commenting 

A Culture Of Commenting 

While I was writing my last post I added links to a couple of old posts from 2012 and 2013, and out of interest decided to go back and read them.

Fragments Of Blog Posts

Fragments Of Blog Posts

My thoughts aren’t coherent enough for a full blog post on any of these subjects, but all of them are demanding an opportunity to speak, so here are all of them. *** Father person seems to think that any actor whose work I have admired (that is to say, anyone whose name I know or whom I’ve watched in more than one film) is a ‘hero’ of mine. I have very few ‘heroes’. The people I consider to be heroes…

Let The Accused Speak

Let The Accused Speak

Never before have I received so many blog views in one day. Never before has one post had so many comments and so much attention from those who are not regular readers of my blog. Never before have I logged onto WordPress just twenty minutes after I logged out, to find that there were already comments awaiting my response. And never before have I felt the need to defend myself. I am referring to this post. For those unaware, it…
