Teen Fatigue Gets Real

One of my son’s good friends - let’s call him M - has just been diagnosed with chronic fatigue - not what you want when you’re about to start your first year of university! According to his dad, who I ran into at the chemist today, it seems to be a spin-o ...

Timber Doors Are in Vogue…Now

Apparently, our door is just not good enough. And if it's now the door, then it's the windows, and if it's not the windows, it's the bathroom, and then the kitchen, the garden, and so on and so forth until the universe implodes. And even then, Ian will fi ...

Television…or Streaming?

What to do, in this new and exciting information age? I like television…but I also like streaming…but can I have both? Neat-Flicks has my absolute favourite show of all time, Fiends. It’s the one about the six mortal enemies living near each other in T ...

‘Row, Anna’ is A New Classic For Sure

Biz-Ney have knocked it out of the park again, as they so often do. What IS it with their catchy tunes and heartwarming moral stories?? They have me singing for days and days afterwards. Anyway, I'm a little bit late to the party on this one, but I man ...

Removing a Tree, With Ki

Ugh, I had to have another one of THOSE conversations today. You know, the ones I get from total plebeians who don't understand the true beauty of anime. They think I should be watching reality TV and sport instead. As if that's better; how am I going to ...
