Arts In Entertainment

Phil Reed of Noiseless Chatter fame has announced that he is publishing a series of books of arts criticism with a difference. He's called them Arts In Entertainment.

He's asked me to take part and I'm delighted to be contributing a book about the Pulp album This Is Hardcore, the impact it had on me and my surprise at how it failed to change the world.

It's not just me and it's not just Pulp, Zachary Kaplan will be writing about Synecdoche, New York, Catie Osborn's book concerns Titus Andronicus, Nathan Rabin is writing about I'm Still Here, Matt Sainsbury tells us all about Hatsune Miku and Phil himself is writing a book about Mystery Science Theater 3000.

There are more details to come, but in the meantime you can find out more about Arts In Entertainment here.

The Dredd Alert blog has fallen well behind schedule of late and yet recently has had a flurry of activity. I've finally finished off Black Hawk, and written about two Judge Dredds and a Strontium Dog, which brings us to another entry...

Disaster 1990! was a prequel, before prequels were invented, to Invasion! It saw nineties Britain flooded and featured Bill Savage's attempts to survive in the newly nautical nation.

March 2015 seems to have been a busier than usual month for me on Twitter:

The sad death of Leonard Nimoy:

Still not out...

The Conservative party's filibustering of the NHS Anti-Privatisation bill got me very angry...

To mark the sad death of Terry Pratchett I tweeted a few of my favourite quotes:

More Tory hypocrisy:

I continued working my way through Futurama's opening captions for some reason, alternating them with my own tweetery:

In answer to the trending hashtag #ThingsMyDoctorSays, I decided to tweet the first line of each Doctor Who:

The election was on the horizon:

I'm Announcing An Announcement

So August was a busy month and I failed to write anything on here. Crucially though, I got a lot of writing done and some of it is due to be announced soon.

It may seem odd, but I'm announcing that an announcement will be announced.

In Absentia

One period of busy has been replaced by another and I have continued neglecting this blog. Sorry. On the plus side, I have been writing. Just not here, obviously. Sorry again.

In my absence, something I wrote for Buzzfeed has reached over 10,000 views.
