Random Waffling

It's been an age since I posted. I have had a few SFX blogs go up as well as a few podcasts since the last time I blogged and the links shall be in the usual places since I can't be bothered to look them up. I am going to attempt to blog more often but this means there will be more random guffins, probably some knitting as well as comicsy/geeky stuff. I make no apologies about this at all.

My youngest daughter had the "dire rear" as Nanny Ogg would call it really quite nastily at the weekend - so we were stuck in all day Saturday. She wanted to watch She-ra whilst lying on her bed - which I thought was fair enough, so I signed up for a month's free trial of Netflix and watched a few episodes of The Killing which I am enjoying very much - although it is occasionally hard viewing.  Me and the other half watched a couple of films later on, we watched Manhattan Murder Mystery which is a Woody Allen movie, I really enjoyed this film non the least because I have a) a bit of a girl crush on Diane Keaton and b) cos I have a massive crush on Alan Alda. Ah Alan, how I lust you- let me count the ways.

Anyhoo, very funny film. The next night we watched High Fidelity, I hadn't seen this film before and really loved this film too. My lovely A Man, was looking at me with much smooshyness as we discussed the films and I could tell he was all filled with love and admiration because I liked the funny, quirky, clever movies of the type he adores. So I mocked him -as is my way, I was like, "yeah yeah, I'm not totally thick you know, I understand the subtleties and storytelling techniques. I don't know why you're so surprised." so he says, looking at me over the top of his glasses,"what was your first choice of movie tonight my love?" I looked over the top of my glasses right back at him as I confessed..."Crank 2."


  1. Have you seen Everyone Says I Love You? It's my favourite Woody Allen, it's a musical and has many amazing people in it, including Alan Alda!

  2. I haven't seen it, it's going straight on my list. Cheers!

Robin of Sherwood.

Here we are again, another auld SFX blog. This time a review of Robin of Sherwood, from about 2010 I think. I also think after reading this I absolutely need to watch this again and soon. Sometimes shitty weather is a treat isn't it, or at the very least permission to curl up with ya knitting and your spicy tea, mmmm spicy tea and watch something delicious. And this is really delicious. For more than one reason.  It is probably on Netflix of Prime by now I would've thought. Did you love this? Did it haunt you? Sometimes unbidden, does this scrumptious face just pop into your head?

Robin of Sherwood: Nothing’s Forgotten…Nothing’s Ever Forgotten
When I was a child in the 80’s the unmissable television programme of the time was Robin of Sherwood. My overwhelming memories of the series were: Michael Praed being the most beautiful human being I had ever seen, the blond replacement being a bit rubbish and the episode with the Hounds of Lucifer being the most terrifying thing I had e…

Knitting and Spinning
EEW Nano e spinning wheel Effortless Cardi Cat and Sparrow yarn and fibre
ERRATA aka Mistakes I make in this ep!  I talk about how much I enjoyed the John Carpenter ep of FutureMan, I totally mean James Cameron. I also talk about the direction you should spin and ply and give entirely the wrong info. You do not spin and ply the same way as your fibre will be Over spun and will break. You are taking twist out not putting more in. I have not slept much recently. I think that is it but ye nah, can't guarantee it!
