Flix

Sooo, we “got” Netflix a few weeks ago (Series 3 of House of Cards made us do it!) and I’m kinda hooked.

I very much like the variety of series vs films, documentaries vs fiction etc. It seems like there’s a lot of shite to sift through, but some gems in there too.

Here are some of my highlights so far:

House of Cards, series 3 (obviously):

Where my Netflix journey began. I wanted to love this, but it just didn’t live up to the cunning, drama and suspense of season 1.

I liked the Pussy Riot cameo and I’m holding out hopes for a massive season 4. (Claire’s stylist for President!)

QI:

This is my happy place, I absolutely adore Stephen Fry and I love this show. I always learn something “quite interesting” in each episode, but then it gets pushed out by something else in the next show!!

PS, Sandi Toksvig is my spirit animal. As is Jo Brand. ❤ you ladies.

Dreams of a Life:

This is a documentary that I stupidly watched while ill. It’s a film based on the real-life story of a lady named Joyce Carol Vincent, who was found dead in her bedsit, having been dead for more than two years.

The tagline is “Would anyone miss you?” GUYS, I WAS SICK IN BED AND VERY VUNERABLE!!

It wasn’t great timing, but it was a really compelling story. Je recommend.

So, I’m mad into the ‘Flix at the moment. I’m not sure what’s next on the viewing agenda, but sure, it saves having to talk to your fella all evening, amirite??

😉 I jest.

Pure M awards – Best Male Solo nomination

Good evening!

Things are still quiet chez moi as I have the lurgy of all lurgies, but a bit of news: Barry has been nominated for a Pure M award – Best Male Solo Act.

Tis a long list, in fairness, but it’s nice to see his name up there, first award nomination.

Whoop 🙂

Dosed

I have the lurgy. Sniffles, aches and pains and a razor-sore throat.

Poor me. Today I will be lobbing hot Berocca drinks, Sudafed and other liquids into me like there is no tomorrow. (Maybe there won’t be, maybe this will just kill me. Dramatic much??)

I foresee a Netflixy afternoon ahead of me.

Hope you’re all luckier than me and having a lovely weekend.

*cries*

To cheer me up, I’m listening to Iron and Wine’s Tiny Desk Concert. Love him 🙂
