I went to see the new Kingsman film on Friday night.

Yeah, get me with a social life. Woo.

This was like the 3rd google image result. Isn’t the internet wonderful?

Anyway, here are my thoughts in no particular order (I imagine there are spoilers)…

Two weeks of irredeemable tat and it seems about the right time to start introducing this franchise into the mix, given that it takes up a good half of all the shit I own…

I went to the pictures on Friday night to see the new Blade Runner film. Here are my thoughts in no particular order… I imagine there will be spoilers.

I was sent some hair straighteners to review because for some reason I am considered a professional authority on beauty products. This may be because I am so beautiful.

These are some LEE STAFFORD “No Strings Attached” Cordless Straighteners. For making your hair straight. Which is something people like doing.

So there you go. In a fabulous shade of pink. It’ll match my frilly knickers so I can’t complain. (more…)

Right, so I’ve been suffering this past week or so. A combination of a family tummy bug, a terribly knackered mattress and not bending properly when lifting my toolbox at work have had me aching and creaking like some kind of feeble old man.

Luckily, painkillers exist, the only problem I have is that I’m ridiculously absent minded and never take my tablets at the correct time. Well, I’ve been sent these new Combogesic dual action pain relief tablets to try out, with the hope that I will stop nagging and Gem can have some peace.

I had to pick these up from Boots and speak to a man in a lab coat and everything. So, yeah. (more…)

In which our brave hero watches a children’s TV show that tries its hardest to be as upsetting and unpleasant as possible… (more…)

Hi. This is me from the future. Well, kind of. I’m still writing this in your past, but relative to most of this review I am in the future, with a fairly atrocious headache and infinite regrets. 

Anyway, past me got sent a bunch of beers from beer52.com to review. I don’t like beer and this morning I like it even less. In my 36 years and 11 months on this Earth, I have drank about 2/3 of a bottle of beer (1997, cheap stuff from Morrisons), and I didn’t finish it because it was horrible. 

Yet for some reason when the review site I visit has an assignment for beer52.com’s monthly subscription craft beer club, the voices in my head decided “ooh that might be a good idea, I could do it as some sort of ‘beginner’s guide to beer’ thing”. The voices in my head are always wrong and want me to suffer.

But, they sent me the beers, and I had literally nothing better to do because Gem was watching the Apprentice final, so here you go…

All bold and italic stuff was prepared beforehand. The rest is a direct copy and paste from my review notes. I apologise in advance.
