Warner Brothers plan LEGO Batman spin-off for 2017!


Very excited! Loved the Lego Movie – can’t wait to see this, especially since the Nolan ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy has sadly ended.

One of the unquestioned highlights of February’s hit The LEGO Movie was Will Arnett voicing a pompous Batman, and audiences are about to get a lot more of him as Heat Vision reports that Warner Bros. is readying a solo movie for the character to be released in 2017.

The Hardships of the Yard

A beautiful post on the Globe On-Screen DVDs. I recently went to watch ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ as part of my Shakespeare module for university. It’s a shame I didn’t go and see Roger Allam (or even Colin Morgan/Merlin) at the Globe – though, the Globe DVDs lets you do that, minus the shame and plus the comfort of your own sofa. A must for anyone!

Globe On Screen dvds are so relaxing to watch. You completely forget about the hardships of the yard, queuing up to be in the front rows, standing for three solid hours, enduring rain and hail, the helicopters, eating nothing but cookies during the whole process.

Our Generation – Jordan Nichols


I’ve been subjected to some pretty abysmal post-modern poetry (despite recently finishing at Poetry module at uni), I never really managed to connect with some poems on a level I would have liked. Books tend to better  at – to use the cliche term – “open my eyes and soul” than poetry.

But this? It takes the biscuit, the whole goddamn cake and the entire bakery. Absolute genius and a brilliant message.

So I haven’t made a post in a month but on seeing this unbelievable fucking incredible poem, I simply had to share it.


This got posted on Twitter by the author’s older brother. I wish more poetry out there was innovative like this rather than postmodern fragmented wankery.
