Revisiting forgotten albums

There is a cd coming out soon that I probably want a physical copy of, so I needed to make some space to fit it on the limited space permitted for CDs

To do this I dug out a few albums that I couldn’t remember, turns out there was a good reason for this so I now own less PoisonBlack and Breaking Benjamin albums!

Happily I did also find Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Pretty Hate Machine’, it’s dated as anything however still fun!

Oops

Updating this again is totally on my to do list

Just having a few issues with motivation to do anything at all

Struggling to even make a new playlist for the car at the moment, hopefully it’s just a little bump that will be overcome ASAP!

Book : Kelley Armstrong’s ‘This Fallen Prey’ – “I’m saying it doesn’t matter who did. Not really”

‘This Fallen Prey’ is the third book in Kelley Armstrong’s Rockton series and it really is an interesting premise for a series; Rockton is a completed isolated, unknown and off the grid community populated by people who have left their pasts behind – for good reason

Casey Duncan is the main female lead of the three books to date, like seemingly all of Kelley Armstrong’s female leads she’s strong, a tiny bit damaged and determined to do the right thing regardless of the personal cost

As a high level description: Book one set the scene, book two was kidnapping and rape themed, book three is outside interference posing a problem. I like book one, book two is ok – personally I dislike the use of rape as a plot device, and book three seems to spend a lot of time wandering around the wood and putting Casey’s dog in various perilous situations

It’s an ok story and sort of flows, despite a rushed reveal ‘twist’ and ending on a weird semi-cliff hanger. However the remote setting of the books does limit their potential plots and my gut feel is at some point Casey and her friends will have to start their own community, which would probably be a slightly more adult version of ‘The 100’ , which I can honestly live without

Food: Ben & Jerry’s Home Sweet Honeycomb

The snow is nearly all gone and I rather fancied ice cream, happily there was an offer on a flavour of Ben & Jerry’s that I hadn’t tried before – Home Sweet Honeycomb

It’s sweet cream ice-cream with chocolate covered chunks of honeycomb and honey caramel swirls, it’s also very tasty

It’s not going to replace Phish Food as my all-time favourite, however it’s not far off

Film: The Angry Birds Movie – “Sometimes, when I get upset, I’ve been known to blow up”

I’ve not played Angry Birds, or Candy Crush or anything mobile games really, so my watching ‘The Angry Birds Movie’ was more because I wanted to watch something silly and ideally funny

Much to my surprise this film delivered both silly AND funny whilst having a half-way decent plot; there is an island of birds who are flightless and mostly happy – Red is a notable exception in terms of happy and has be ostracised by being sent to anger management class. Naturally the anger management class makes him angry too…

Then along come the green pig who initially seem nice  – suspiciously nice, and naturally Red’s anger does come in handy.

It isn’t a highbrow film, however it was perfect for a Sunday night when I was in denial about work looming

Book: Orlando A Sanchez’s ‘Silver Clouds Dirty Sky’ – “I looked liked a flailing ragdoll about to become pulped by a tree”

‘Silver Clouds Dirty Sky’  is book 4 in the Montague and Strong series, it also sees a change of location as they end up in London – via teleportation circle as oppose to a more mundane method of transport.

Happily the Hellhound Peaches also made it to London and they are all vaguely poking the investigation into the murder of a leading demonologist, but mostly they are causing chaos and racking up enemies.

This is enjoyable enough, however it’s not anything new – we’ve had three books and several short stories of this. I think I was looking for something more and felt a little disappointed that there wasn’t much character growth; although to be fair Peaches does grow.

I do like the series premise and I will continue reading for at least one other book, however I might be less excited about the next one

Nails: Space

Having watch the SpaceX launch of the Falcon Heavy the other day there could only be one theme in my head – space!

I did look at rocket themed nails first, that wasn’t as successful as I hoped
