Blogging - I’ve been real slack over the last month, my record player is on the fritz so I’ve fallen behind on my Randon Vinyl Selection posts, I’ve done no themed other posts and I’ve been tagged to at least two questionnaires (from Badbooks and Azkabanter) that I still haven’t done, sorry. I managed only 18 posts for August and although I don’t believe this is a great loss to the Tumblrverse I owe it to myself to at least be consistent.
I’ve been picked to take part in a fellow bloggers sketch book project! She’s sending it around the world to fill in and I managed to make the cut. I’m no artist but I’m really looking forward to putting my own stamp on it :)
Books - I’m still reading the final volume of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series, I really need to make more time available to read!
Next up (if the library delivers it next that is) Murakami’s Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage.
TV- Currently watching The 100, The Sopranos and George Clark’s Amazing Spaces. The 100 is sci-fi teen drama, a little cheesy (nothing wrong with that) but I do enjoy watching it and spotting all those former Neighbours actors lol. Finally got around to watching The Sopranos and I absolutely love it, currently on series 2 about half way through, such a well written series.
George Clark’s Amazing Spaces is such an great UK show, basically it’s a guy who visits people turning small vehicles such as milk floats, caravans, horse boxes and even double decker buses and making them in to fantastically unique liveable spaces. It just makes you wish you had guts/plenty of dough to do something similar yourself.
Music – As per my last post I’m off to see New Found Glory and The Story So Far in a few months but sadly that’s about it. I’m depressingly off the musical radar at the moment, I did turn on the rock music channels the other day but everything new was terrible, maybe I’m just getting old lol. Loving DFA1979’s new effort though!
Gaming – Wake me up when they announce Rival Schools and Shenmue HD remakes.
Personal - I got a new position at work, it’s more a move sideways rather than upwards but it’s permanent. My current secondments of sorts ends in Jan so I had to make steps to try something new. I’ve been here 6 years and owe it to myself to push in a new direction, this new role could even end up in business trips to India!
In other news, I still need a hobby, my quarter life crisis is not as bad as it was a month or so ago but I still need something to get my teeth into.
