Atlantis and other abominations

Whilst channel hopping i’ve come across quite a few dimly lit viking/medieval/fairytale based tv shows lately.
What the writers don’t seem to appreciate is that Game Of Thrones has source material, the incredibly dense A Song Of Ice And Fire, a staggering mythos which is heavily diluted to create a season of television.
You can’t just use stilted English, gratuituous violence, full frontal nudity and the occasional ‘C word’ in a tired medieval/fantasy narrative and hope to replicate it’s success.

Be All; End All is a collection of poems which has been written since the release of Swannui and Cygnus in the summer of 2013. It is considerably longer, deeper and perhaps less conventional than my earlier work, Swannui and Cygnus.

7 sleeps til Disney!

When i was a kid i was never hugely into Disney. I enjoyed The Lion King and Aristocats but found the surplus of princess based films a little bit girly. My brother and i were never like the kids in those insufferable adverts.
Now, as a adult, i find myself practically bursting with excitement at the prospect of spending christmas and new year at Disneywold Florida with my lady. I have resolved to get into the spirit thoroughly and make up for lost time. I wonder if she’ll still stand next to me if i wear this Mickey hat for the entirety of the visit…

Available on Kindle for $1.22

YouTube is an overwhelming sea of “durge” with nuggets of gold floating on the top and some pretty good gems hidden below the surface suspended like silty sedimenty stuff. The problem is you can’t see the awesome suspended gems as they are hidden from view by the turgid lumpy bits floating on the surface. The durge can be overwhelming. Everyone loves a good excrement metaphor.

My point is that I struggle to gain exposure and views on YouTube. There is an awful lot of content for prospective viewers to sift through to even find one of my videos. Now i’m not trying to claim that my videos fall in the hidden gems category at all. I just find that from personal experience when searching for any content that might have taken time to write, edit and film that for every one of these I find I first have to wade…
