It's been a while since I last posted on here, too long in fact. To begin with, just over a year ago when the journal of the Average Man began, I was quite active on here. Last August though, thanks to Helen Cox, creator of New Empress film magazine and website, I began my foray into film reviews and article writing. I would like to hope that sometime in the future I will be able to look back at that moment and say "That truly was the Secret of my Success." Any of you who have read my first published article will know what that means, for those of you who don't, what are you waiting for!? Get over to www.newempressmagazine.com and take a look!
Around this time my Nana passed away. We knew it was on the cards and she had defied all predictions made by various Doctors. The original suggestion was that she wouldn't make our wedding in 2003. She batted this idea away and continued, becoming a guinea pig of sorts for various drugs before, in my eyes, defeating cancer by preventing it from causing any more pain and moving on. I can only hope that she knows how my writing has progressed and that I would have liked to show her what I have achieved.
Following on from another previous post concerning cars I have owned, the Rover 25 was part exchanged for my current chariot, a fine Renault Laguna Estate. Gold (not buff) in colour, this 1998 vintage Gallic chariot has a boot which can accommodate several "Daisies." There's still only one of those...for the minute!
In addition to writing for New Empress I have had articles and reviews published by www.lostinthemultiplex.com and www.couchpotatoclub.com. More recently my reviews have been published on my local newspaper's website www.northantstelegraph.co.uk from which I hope more people will enjoy reading my views and reviews on film.
My wife has continued to set and achieve new goals; she is capable of making the best cakes I have ever seen and recently received a City & Guilds Level 1 in Image Capture/Photo Imaging passing with a distinction. I am very proud of her.
I intend to write a new post every month, so keep popping back and taking a look. You never know what you'll find. Now, where was I? Oh yeah, I watched Twiglet:Breaking Wind farts 1 & 2 last night. Lost Boys was one movie that was better than all four of the Cullen's efforts combined. I preferred Pattison as Diggory after the Dark Lord had performed Avada Kedavra on him. As for Kristen Stewart, well I thought she laughed at one point but apparently it was just wind. Bela Lugosi would turn in his coffin. As you were Buffy.
