Growing up I was a closet Geek, now I'm out and proud! I have my likes and my dislikes but I don't let a dislike cloud an opinion. I'll give everything a go and will sit and be tortured through a lot of mundane things. Right at this moment I'm really into the whole Doctor Who / Sherlock / Hunger Games thing. Now if only a cross over were to happen.....

What we do in the Shadows : Pilot

The Mocumentary film of the same name was hilarious and now the BBC have brought a TV series to life starring one of our favourite and loud comedians Matt Berry.

So obviously we were going to give it a watch.

Let us battle with music! Or something like that.

Very Slow Uploading for a few weeks!

Hey everybody.

So we’ve been trying year on year to be better at getting out content quickish and consistently. I think we’ve been OK at it recently even if we do get a week or so behind at times or very behind on one thing but keep kind of up to date on another.

Thing is Anna is our main editor. As the smarty pants of the group and the better writer we rely on her being ready to read, edit and sort out tagging and all sorts for the blog.

Unfortunately Anna is very ill at the moment. Anyone who follows her Diary blogs or Twitter know that she suffers very badly with mental health issues and losing Pete two years ago very much left a gap in her life she has yet to mend. Since then a lot of problems have appeared and she’s done her best to just move on as she always does but sometimes as friends we have to say you can’t do that anymore.

That is what we have decided to do today.

After talking at length about it over night and in the brief moments we could talk to Anna so far today we have come to the conclusion that she shouldn’t force herself or feel anxious about forgetting to do anything on here.

We have a few weekly questions already done and ready to post, we are hoping her love for wrestling and how it tends to help her in the bad times will mean that the Back in Time… Reviews will continue as well as maybe bringing back the DEFIANT blogs and even maybe watching weekly episodes of RAW and Smackdown or NXT/NXT:UK or something. Ghost will definitely be up as soon as she can post a review of it and any anime that she is able to watch with Lucius will be reviewed though we apologise if the quality isn’t the same as usual… Not that you come to us for quality of course.

Anyone who suffers the same as Anna will know that it is unpredictable. She could wake up tomorrow morning and everything could be OK, it might take days, weeks, months or we might not get back to normal for the rest of the year. We just don’t want her to feel like she has to do anything if she isn’t in the right frame of mind. When her and Lucius did a lot of work on Tuesday she was in a decent place and was happy to be productive but more often then not in the last few weeks she has had no mental strength to even watch TV and pay attention let alone write about anything. Again anyone that knows her knows she’s basically been watching her favourite YouTubers/Twitch Streamers and trying to forget everything.

We do hope that because we never DID get the consistency thing anyway that you might not even notice. Sometimes when she’s in her worst places she’s posted more mental health stuff on here and maybe her finding ways to express herself will mean that we just get more blogs that aren’t our normal anime stuff. We also didn’t just want to go quiet and people think we’d disappeared or something.

So long story short.

We are still here we are just well aware that our ability to write anything or do anything on our own is poor so need Anna who right now needs to heal. We hope to have the majority of our blogs out at some point just this time we’re well aware that they could be postponed for long periods whereas in the past it was more just life getting in the way. If you follow Anna on Twitter send her all the pet photos because she’d appreciate that.

We love you all and hopefully our long rambling, nonsensical posts will be spammed out to you soon!

Week 44 : What is the most tragic thing happening in the world right now?

Last week I tackled the happy in the world and showed off some of the nice things going on that I could find in the papers to spread some positivity.

This week I’m not going to inundate you with news articles on the bad that is happening because you already see that, its the sensational and depression headlines that papers shill to sell their work.

This week I’m going to tell you what I think is the most tragic thing happening in the world right now…
