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.
I was travelling back from a convention yesterday so please enjoy Music Monday on a Tuesday. February was an interesting month. I spent 2 weeks in Denver going to a bunch of Colorado Avalanche games, so I didn't have as much commuting time to listen to my playlist as I usually do. However, there were … Continue reading Music Monday: Hils’ February 2020 Car Playlist
After a month of alternating between my favourite songs from last year's playlists and holiday songs it was nice to get back into the routine of discovering new music. It's funny, when I listen to a new playlist for the first time some songs I connect with and fall in love with on the first … Continue reading Music Monday: Hils’ January 2020 Car Playlist
At the end of every month, I put the songs that I especially enjoyed from that month's playlist into a Best of (Year) playlist.

Since we only launched this blog in October I've … Continue reading Music Monday: Best of Hils 2019 Playlists

Jughead, after winning the Baxter Brothers story competition by writing about 'the boy in the river', decides to hunt down his grandfather. Because all that talk about not … Continue reading Riverdale Recap: Tangerine

In Summary: someone is sending creepy video tapes of the fronts of people's houses, there's a haunted doll, Hiram is mayor and Archie is a masked vigilante. Welcome to Riverdale. The creepy video … Continue reading Riverdale Recap: In Treatment

When did that happen? Lindsey: WAIT. HIRAM JUST GETS TO BE MAYOR The Riverdale writers evidently decided they didn't want to take the … Continue reading Riverdale Recap: The Ice Storm
While I was driving to work last week I was listening to my November playlist and thinking about what songs I wanted to write about. It struck me that my first ever published writing gig, back when I was 17, was reviewing music. I'd just started studying for my A-Levels (which I think if my … Continue reading Music Monday: Hils’ November 2019 Car Playlist
We start, as most episodes do, with Jughead's voiceover. He recaps what we learned in the last episode, that Dodger is exploiting kids and Archie is working to save them. Meanwhile, trying his hand at the Baxter Brothers story competition, Jughead finds himself suffering from writer's block for the first time in his life. Lindsey: … Continue reading Riverdale Recap: Hereditary
