It's like this. You were always going to go and see Bill & Ted Face the Music because you loved the original Bill & Ted movies, because you're a child of the 80s and because you'll always have a soft spot for Keanu Reeves and because being excellent to each other never seemed like too … Continue reading Bill & Ted Face the Music
Time takes on a very different meaning in Christopher Nolan's Tenet. Unrelated: it's been nearly six months since we updated this blog. I went to see Tenet yesterday, in an actual cinema. It's been months since I've been to see a movie and I was so ready. I would have gone to see Tenet anyway … Continue reading Tenet: The Interception Between Interstellar and Inception
Welcome to our sometimes-weekly hockey update. I expect this will be the last for a while, given latest circumstances. Even though approximately eighteen years have passed in the span of a week, there were actually hockey games in living memory. The last Caps game was played on Monday, a shootout loss to Buffalo, attended by … Continue reading 15th March: Sunday Overtime – Shutout
We're all going through something right now, aren't we? The world is looking pretty grim and unappealing, and more and more of us are being advised to socially distance ourselves, which is great for the introverts and bookworms, but we're not all built to hide away. The book series I'm recommending in this post are … Continue reading So You Have To Self Isolate 2.
Now, don't get me wrong. Self-isolation sounds like a dream. Two whole weeks to catch up with TV and reading. It would be delightful if it wasn't so serious. I've been thinking a bit about my comfort reads, and my non-comfort reads, and figured I would share them with you in a series of posts. … Continue reading So You Have To Self-Isolate 1.
Welcome back to our once-upon-a-weekly hockey digest. Following holidays and other events, I'm hoping to resume weekly posting. 01. Outbreak Remember when Sidney Crosby said he didn't have the mumps but we all saw the picture and it turned out that he very much had the mumps? Why do I ask? Oh. No reason. This … Continue reading 8th March: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
Yes, I am actually posting a Sunday Overtime on Sunday but, as the eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed, I didn't post at all last week. I gave myself a bye week, albeit unintentionally. Do you ever have those days or weekends or weeks when you are just not able? Yeah, that was me last … Continue reading 26th January: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
Listen, I should probably start calling this Monday Overtime instead. I have no excuse for my lateness this week, other than sheer laziness. After a day of intensive spring-cleaning, I had no desire to open my laptop. But that doesn't mean that all was quiet in the NHL last week - far from it. Here … Continue reading 12th January: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
Welcome back to our weakly feature on the good, the bad and the ugly of hockey. Yes, once more I am a day late but in my defence: I have coursework to do, I had to go see Little Women yesterday evening and, I don't know about you lot, but it doesn't feel like a … Continue reading 5th January: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
Welcome back to our regular post about hockey highlights and/or lowlights from the past week. I hope all of you who observe are having a very enjoyable and peaceful festive season. While I'm sitting here, working through a gigantic box of celebrations (the Malteaser sweets are my favourite) and watching Avengers: Endgame (while getting mad … Continue reading 29th Dec: Sunday Overtime – Three on Three
