You're a hardcore reader! I lag after page 5 of Dickens!

80 pages into to the Infinity Doctors. Quite enjoying it which is a surprise as most comments I had heard about it were luke warm. Does make the Time Lords seem really mundane when characters are taking showers and so on. I am wondering if it's going to get really fanwanky at some point.

My god that really went awry by the end. Utter fanwank, yet still better than Zagreus

Total self-promo, but I'm going to be published in this:

http://www.cambridgescholars.com/performing-art

Released 1st October.

My piece is about sound poetry.

Pricy book but I'd be grateful for some reviews if you can get hold of it.

£45.99 for 140 A5 pages. Go fuck yourself.

I'll review it anyway based on the title, cover and description. Pretentious bullshit with no artistic or academic value and a price:worth ratio so wide it rivals No Man's Sky, and would serve more purpose being burned in a bin to warm up a homeless person... in the middle of a summer heatwave.

Good for you though, this must be really exciting and hopefully a step towards something you want to do. Happy for you, blood. :?:
For three long days, I felt the cold hand of death on my shoulder. Lost in the depths of despair I tried to figure out what I had done to deserve this. I wasn't an evil person. The worst thing I'd ever done was kick a pig - School trip to Heston Farm, 1964, I maintain it was self-defence.

Massive prick, eh? I'm flattered but you give me too much credit.

I would have called you out but googling blud brings up an urbandictionary result, and who can argue with that? As Bill Burr would say - "Eh, go fuck yourself, ya cunt".

As I was typing out this reply I sneezed so hard I knocked over both of my Daisy Ridley figures but none of the others. So a double fuck you and if they're damaged I will charge you for them.

Today, I read the word "pizza" again in my most recent mail, and decided to hate Italians because of it.

....Well, that and Horace.

(Not really, but let the gag ride...).

The writing on the wall has been fairly interesting.

I only said fairly.

Mein Kamph. I took note of that hard UK push to read -just read - read anything!!!!

I think they may have over-rated it. Especially advertised during Big Brother...
