Netflix and…freak out

13 December, 2015

I’ve never really bought into the whole Netflix thing. Partly because I refuse to pay to stream stuff that is already available on demand (which most of Netflix’s (non-original) content is), and partly because I just don’t watch enough TV to justify it. But my two eldest have become avid users – my daughter mooching [...]

(G)rant me the serenity…

28 January, 2014

This year I’m trying to be a better person. Part of this is becoming less intolerant of others. This is going to be really hard, as apparently I have a lot of pent-up frustration and a bit of a temper. So let me try to purge it all in one go, and then I can [...]

Top Of The Pops, Bottom Of The Ratings

28 June, 2006

The BBC have announced that Top Of The Pops is to be axed.  For the non-Brits, Top Of the Pops is (or at least was) the flagship ‘music’ programme produced by the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation).  It has been airing weekly since 1964, and was for many of those years the only ‘youth-oriented’ programme produced [...]
