Long time, No Blog. Now with added Vlog

March 30, 2009, 05:13 PM

Wow. This blog kinda got left behind a bit. Summary of my life since the last blog? Ok. I went to uni, and I worked my socks off all year round and I'm still not finished! Seriously my life has been all about work. And one other thing.Books. I have become hugely obsessive over books. I've been reading Harry Potter for almost 10 years now (omg) but never really LOVED literature on a scale like this before. It all started about this time last year, when I realized I had a large number of books...


Harry Potter: a classic?

September 07, 2008, 06:53 PM

I've literally just read the first chapter of The Catcher in the Rye, a book I've never read before and decided to pick it up in my local bookstore after a couple of videos from the vlogbrothers on YouTube made my mind for me. In fact, I find it almost embarrassing to mention that I haven't read it before. Yes, I admit I am a Rye-virgin! But it kinda feels like one of those books I should have read. I know a lot of people study it in school and such but not me, and I was never much of a big reader...

Fandom Wars

August 31, 2008, 02:37 PM

As the title of this blog might suggest: this isn't the happiest of blogs. And perhaps in shouldn't follow on from my previous one, about a glorious week spent with friends. But it's definitely something that's been playing on my mind recently, having been brought to my attention. It started when I saw this video on YouTube the other day, (if the link doesn't work, the video's at the bottom of the blog). A great funny video which simultaneously mocks and supports both fandoms and proves a point...

So I've been back from Chicago for about a week and a half, and yet, have still not found the time to right a blog. So I officially fail, and I'm sorry. Be happy with the knowledge that this is not the only thing left to be done. I still have 200+ photos which have yet to hit the web, I only just finished emptying my suitcase yesterday, and there are many a Facebook comment or email to reply to. So my life is kinda, lets put it frankly, jetlagged at the moment. As am I...still. So through the...

Extreme Blogging

August 06, 2008, 11:01 PM

So three blogs in, and I'm already failing to keep up to my weekly blog promise. Though I have a good excuse! Believe me. This past weekend was filled with seeing old school friends and distant relations, while spending as much time as humanly possible with my closer family members. As there isn't a holiday in sight, it must have been my birthday. And so it was! (How shocking!) And as I became another year older, (and hopefully wiser), I found myself thinking back on the year that was and how...

Let me introduce myself...

July 27, 2008, 08:00 PM

So my first blog, (found here), was me trying to give an example of what this blog might contain, namely a retrospective look on experiences shared with Mr Potter. But, as such, it failed to give you, faithful reader, who I am. Who’s fingers are striking the keys while listening to U2? Who was able to blather on for a ridicoulsly long period of time about re-reading books? And, maybe more importantly, who never even made it to re-reading Prisoner of Azkaban, let alone the succeeding four books,...

One Year On: Re-reading Harry Potter

July 06, 2008, 10:00 AM

In exactly on month from now, I’ll be sitting on a plane. It’ll be a flight from Detroit to Chicago, and the final leg of a long journey that will take me from my home in England to the delights of Terminus 2008, a Harry Potter conference that’ll span the following weekend. While I anticipate much fun and antics resulting from my fellow Leaky staffers and I meeting and, in some cases, reuniting, I do also expect a certain level of Potter discussion, from the basics to the more complex realms...
