Game of Thrones S608: ‘No One’ Recap

We open in Bravos, where we last saw Arya staggering through a crowded marketplace, bleeding profusely from substantial Waif-inflicted stab wounds. But now we’re here to watch that play. Again. Is it just me, or has a good chunk of Season 6 felt kind of like calling for your favourite pizza but getting repeatedly placed on hold and forced to […]

Game of Thrones S607: ‘The Broken Man’ Recap

We open in bizarro Westeros, where the sun is shining, the fields are green, and clean, cheerful people are working together in harmony to construct some sort of house of worship. Even the music is uncharacteristically uplifting, evoking a sense of hope and the possibility of a better future.  It stirs something deep within your […]

Work got crazy. Weekends were packed out. And amongst all of that, I got busy working on a very different project. The truth is, […]

San Fran and So Long, USA

Since arriving back in Australia and stepping back into my everyday existence, I’ve experienced some…let’s call them ‘adjustment and re-acclimatisation issues’ encompassing a range of emotions, including rage, disbelief and irritation at the characteristic rudeness exhibited by Sydney wankers (I was gone for three weeks – […]
