By the time we crossed the river we could hear steady gunfire starting up again, presumably at the crowd coming up from the south. The sci-fi buzzing of the drone’s guns could also be heard as they dealt death and destruction from above. I wondered if the ‘Battle of Lambeth’ would be remembered like 9/11 … Read more6 – Frying Pan or Fire – You Choose
A worthy sentiment, but on reflection, the name of this film, Kill Zombie!, is a little like that Ronseal ad, ‘it does what it says on the side of the can’. Kill Zombie! – I’m not going to tell you what this film is all about, I’ll keep you in suspense. It’s original title is … Read moreKill Zombie!

Have you heard of this acronym? In my experience 3-letter acronyms are the preserve of the IT industry, but in this instance they are very glad to give this one a wide berth. Female Genital Mutilation – three words that should never be present in the same sentence. I always knew this happened in primitive … Read moreFGM – The Most Frightening Acronym Ever Devised
I watched a golden oldie the other day, a film called Bug (1975). Apart from the hammy acting, including a scene where the Harmony-Hair-Sprayed wife (Joanna Miles) of the hero catches fire in the kitchen – right next to the tap. Guess what she does? Instead of quickly running her head under the water faucet … Read moreBugs – A Natural End To Civilisation?
I normally write blogs on the world of zombies. Perhaps this one won’t be far off-track. I like to find interesting photos to illustrate my blogs; the other day I was searching for some grisly photos of disease when I came across the most extraordinary photos of posters from the 1940s. I was horrified at … Read moreHuman Politics And The Female Condition
Having read Jack Flacco’s interesting blog on parasites that might cause a form of zombie-ism, it reminded me of a part of my biology degree where we studied parasites. Thanks Jack, I’d nearly forgotten that! The Zombie Apocalypse sounds pleasant compared to parasites! Having said that, if we look around us there are a million … Read moreZombie Apocalypse – What REALLY Is The Biggest Threat?
I don’t know about you, but Rolf Harris has been a big part of my life since I was a little ’un. To hear him finally convicted and sentenced today sounded a death-knell to yet another part of my childhood, and to a certain degree some of my adult years. The fact that he cried … Read moreA Sad Day For Aussies And Brits Alike
This has been an interesting week for news, and while terrible things are going on elsewhere in the world, here in the UK we have had some rather interesting accusations coming from Parliament as well as, coincidentally, a rise in the population of Super-Rats. Let’s talk about rats first – the non-parliamentary kind. Several articles … Read moreOf Mice And Men, Or ‘Of Super-Rats And Politicians’
Today’s mental wandering is only partly zombie related. Is there anything more upsetting than watching Hollywood and fashion killing off the human race – starting with the female half? Perhaps they have created a desire in women to become the skeletons or the love interest in Warm Bodies. Is this film to blame for this … Read moreWarm Bodies Anyone?
