Home sick? Suffering from the Australian ‘flu? (we’re very proud, by the way.) Time, but no one, to kill? There are many worse ways to spend an hour, than wandering through Kim Newman’s twitter account, packed with strange, hilarious and sometimes strangely hilarious quotes from the zillion films that he has seen and I have never heard of.
Reading: Anno Dracula 1899: One Thousand Monsters by Kim Newman. Lots and lots of fun. Hard to explain to work colleagues in the cafeteria. Their loss.
Watching: The Detectorists season 2. Finished. Lovely. The Last Post. Finished. What, they do negotiate with terrorists? Lion. The google earth movie. I said to my wife, is it mean to say this feels a bit dragged out? Then saw that we were watching the special Australian extended version. Why? Unlike Hanya Yanagihara, I have cried very, very often since 1995, including at the end of this film.
