The Man Who Watched Netflix and then Amazon Prime.

Just started watching the movie ‘The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then BigFoot‘ which has finally ended up on Netflix (currently sitting high in their trending films charts, too). In plot terms, the film does pretty much what it says on the tin, indeed following an old codger who killed Hitler and then goes on […]

To The Stars?

To The Stars?

I caught the movie ‘Ad Astra’ this weekend at the newly refurbished Leicester Square Odeon Luxe … upgraded sound systems and every seat an expensive LZ-Boy-style armchair with electronic footrests and reclining spine system. In the movie, U.S. Space Command scientist and astronaut Clifford McBride (played by Tommy Lee Jones) heads off on a deep […]

Many-Me?

Many-Me?

There have been a few funny side-effects of the indie book revolution enabled by Amazon – that’s the thang where the masses get to bypass the legacy gatekeepers inside the big four publishers and publish directly to the world (either as e-books, or print-on-demand for dead tree books).

The zombie fly – the fly that could not die!

The zombie fly – the fly that could not die!

Much kerfuffle in the home last night as the younger members of the tribe confused a fly with a wasp and started to sprint around the house, panicking as if an alien invasion was beginning. This was no normal fly, we faced, however. This was the Rambo of flies. This was the fly that has been waiting […]

Just who was the real God of Chips?

Just who was the real God of Chips?

An interesting dinner table debate raged last night at Chez Hunt. Who would be the God of Chips? (that’s French Fries, if you’re reading this in North America . . . USA-style chips are known as ‘Crisps’ on this side of the Big Pond). My suggestion was McCain – invoking one of those Hyborian Age […]

SimCity 2013? Goodbye novels…

SimCity 2013? Goodbye novels…

How the hell am I going to get any genre novel writing done now, with SimCity 2013 coming and looking as good as it does in this trailer? I ask you. Grumble grumble. It’s a tough sim life. But somebody has got to play it I suppose…
