To all those who are still subscribed to this blog on your readers, to all those who still occasionally stop by in the hope of new content I bring great news - blahblahblahgay is back! But has changed a little. Not just in my movie fried mind but in terms of content.
I've spent some time reading rather than watching, writing reviews of books instead of movies and recently came to the conclusion that my blog really should be my blog rather than an attempt to keep up with the insatiable demands of a baying public intent on reading yet another review for Transformers 8.
As such the about me page and the taste guide page have been updated to reflect the following:
I'm planning on posting some book reviews here but not all of them.
I'm planning on discussing music and perhaps even posting some of my famous mixtapes for you.
I shall review movies and make lists but I will keep no schedule.
I'll be honest, I haven't looked at another persons blog in quite a while and I may not get back on my rounds.
I'm even thinking that I shall post anecdotes from my forthcoming trip around europe, foodie adventures and discussions on the state of the world. Grandiose I know.
I may even post some stories here as and when I feel comfortable.
I'm sure some of you will drift away or not care for my non-film content and I appreciate that. But perhaps you'll come for the movies and stay for the pie?
I believe Chip of Tips From Chip fame has a similar model, only this will involve less strenuous physical activity, no blahblahblah hiking for me.
I invite you to add me as a friend on Goodreads, the social networking site for book geeks. My profile can be found here. Aside from the social networking aspect, Goodreads allows you to rate and catalogue every book you have ever read before providing recommendations based on your tastes and is constantly updated as you read more books. I find the place to be a useful tool for keeping track of the books I've read, how much I enjoyed them and why. Discovering new books to read is fantastic and was a major tool in my armoury as a bookseller. Currently you will also find Alex from Film Forager as a member.
I shall also invite you to add me as a friend on Last.fm, the social networking site for people who are obsessive about keeping track of what music they listen to, discovering new music and listening to free radio stations catered to your specific musical tastes. My profile can be found here.
