Yes, this is a real thing. Find out more about the abominable objects here. They also go under the name of ‘The Snuggie’. Are people now so lazy, that using a blanket is a hassle? Okay, don’t answer that. I guess we already know. And have people no self respect. I mean, what kind of [...]

Head Chef’s Horror Academy – Week 5: Dellamorte Dellamore

I refuse to call this by its American title, ‘Cemetery Man’, because it’s just so jarhead prosaic compared to the poetic Italian original: ‘Dellamorte Dellamore’ - ’of Death, of Love’. Aaaah, Venice. It’s also a play on the principle character’s name – Francesco Dellamorte, as embodied by superbly barneted oxbridge homohunk Rupert Everett in a career best performance – and it’s the [...]

This week’s webcomic recommendation is, I believe, what is generally termed as a “grower”. Every time I read John Allison’s Bad Machinery, I like it more and more. Especially his pitch perfect ear for that most elusive of things, “teenage dialogue”. Check it out (and give it time).
