Can't help but feel a bit weird about the recasting of Julia Sawalha in the new Chicken Run film. But like Thandiwe Newton (who I don't think sounds appreciably younger (or more famous) than Sawalha).

Solution: just have Thandiwe Newton voice Rocky instead. Problem solved.


Please record the awkward moment when you tell them you’ve spent most of your career campaigning to have people from Eastern Europe deported.😉

Also watched 'Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City' recently. A film that I was SO ready to love, but was crap.

By far the best moment was a flaming zombie sauntering into the RPD while Jennifer Paige's 'Crush' plays.

There you go, saved you 1hr45mins

I saw Drive My Car yesterday (it's on BFI Player) and thought it was great, so glad to see it picking up awards.

HOWEVER, I hope that Nishijima doesn't become too big or whatever for more Kinou Nani Tabeta/What Did You Eat Yesterday? (And whatever his role in Shin Ultraman is)


Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s DRIVE MY CAR has been awarded best picture, director, screenplay, and actor (Hidetoshi Nishijima) by the National Society of Film Critics:

I decided to organise my favourite video games of 2021 by thematic content rather than in any sort of ranking:

Got my booster this morning and figured I should spend the rest of the day resting.

So have been lying in bed holding my phone a Switch above my head for hours on end, and now my arms are killing me. Not sure

It's a medical mystery. 🤷‍♂️

Lol, turns out I still had the words "covid" and "coronavirus" muted

Did I miss anything good?


It is very weird to me that Japanese children's menu staple omurice is primarily known in the English-speaking world (mostly through YouTube, I think) as a difficult-to-make and complex dish.

Like, IMO completely and utterly missing the point of this hugely comforting food

Yeah, but it's because of the Omicron variant, Carrie. No reason to look so smug about it.

Went ice skating today.

I dressed for the vibes rather than the weather (turns out it was like 13°), and also I was wearing two masks while doing moderate physical exercise, so was kinda a sweaty mess.


“Are you eating the-“

“The pigs in blankets and cranberry sushi? Yeah I am”


A much shorter alignment chart. Would you swap anyone out?

If I get hit by a bus, I hope I get Yesterday'd to a world where the Beatles-y bits of Yesterday don't exist, and it's just a romcom with Himesh Patel and Lily James. Yesterday-within-Yesterday. Yesterdayception.

Or the two just star in another film together. Might be easier.

Hey all, it's my birthday today!

I'm not a huge birthday person generally, but it's *also* my first day out of self-isolation, because I got covid!

My symptoms were genuinely super mild, but, you know, the whole thing was upsetting, boring, annoying and a bit scary.

Take a left at the site where the body of Mary Ann Nichols, the first 'canonical' victim of Jack the Ripper, was discovered.

Bit grim, no?

Maybe this is me outing myself as a rube, but:

I consider myself to be someone that Likes Cooking and Cooks Every Day, but there are multiple sides of my cheese grater that I have never used and do not know what I'd use them for.

Feel weirdly guilty as I've not actually read/watched many spooky things this October, but that's mainly because I've been doing something *truly* scary: making financial commitments.

ie. I'm moving into a new flat on Monday and have been sorting out utilities and rent

This clip is from a 2014 Gogglebox episode where they watch Donatan & Cleo's 'My Słowianie' (Poland's entry in that year's Eurovision), but I feel it has applications well beyond that:
