Come Find Your Niche

Come Find Your Niche I’ve been working on something quietly for the last few months and I’m finally ready to share it with you, random people on the Internet. I bid you welcome, to Kaiju FM. Born out of a lifetime of geeky pursuits and and over-abundance of things to say, Kaiju FM is a podcast network for all your geeky pleasure; come find your niche as we say. We’re launching with 6 shows but aim to build that up over 2017 (presuming we haven’t all died in the fiery nuclear death of Brexit-Trump-ageddon), so get in on the ground floor […]

Talent

So, I’ve worked in various creative fields in my life, from films, to TV, to photography, to cosplay. And whilst I’ve seen some amazing things done by amazing people, one thing has become increasingly clear to me: Talent Is Bullshit. Let me explain. We often talk about talent as if it is innate gift from above, that in the great character creator of life, our maker simply picked that from a skill list. It’s an integral part of who we are. We buy into ideas of prodigies, of that some people are simply better than others at things. And that, […]

Neon Storm

This weekend just gone, despite all the evidence to the contrary, I thought it would be a good idea to watch Batman & Robin, routinely referred to as the worst of the Batman series. And as the film progressed, it got me thinking, why is this film so bad? What made this perfect storm of a terrible movie possible? And thus, here we are. Before we get into the meat of the analysis, I do want to define what I mean by a terrible film. This is something more than a flop, more than a financial disaster. Many good films […]

Home Town Joys

Following on from last weeks post about the new Frank Turner album, I have been listening to it pretty much on constant repeat. As mentioned in that post, the song that has really grabbed me is Wessex Boy, a folk-punk tale of the delights of your hometown and the place it holds in your heart. And this got me thinking. I grew up in Reading, a simple Berkshire town, with delusions of grandeur (we always want to be a city but never succeed) but a good strong history. And, so, this weeks Top 5 is quite simply, the Top 5 things […]

England Keep My Bones

This week I have done something I haven’t done in a long time. I bought a CD. An honest-to-goodness Compact Disc of music. In this digital age, with the advent of online downloads and Spotify, I honest cannot remember the last CD I bought. It has been several years at the very least. But this week that changed. And why? Frank Turner is why. I’ve been a fan of Frank Turner since he first began his solo career a few years back, with the heart-wrenching/warming ballad of ‘Long Live The Queen’ or the vitriol of ‘Love, Ire and Song’ both […]

Berkshire Zombie Defense League – Plan Beta

The Occupation And Defense Of Site #2 – Previously known as Vue Cinema, Oracle, Reading.  Site #2 is only to be used in situations where Site #1 is either unreachable or overrun. Site #1 is still the main objective, refer to Plan Alpha for instructions. Plan Beta should only be invoked in the situation described above. General Notes Although Site #2 is sizeable, be wary of involving too many people in the initial occupation. Too many voices can only add to the confusion that is inevitable. Once established, it will become an ideal base for refugees and other survivors, but survival of […]
