Hey guys! It's my birthday! Today I turned 30. It seems really old to me so I won't be talking about it much. Apologies to those of you already past this "landmark" year. Needless to say, I don't feel old so that's a bonus.
Things to share with you, I have written an essay slash overview of the Hard-boiled and Noir genres of fiction for Literary Exploration. Michael over there runs a great book club and fiction blog, he is always reading something different that you might not ordinarily have picked up yourself and if you're interested in that sort of thing you can't go wrong. My essay is divided in to four parts and part one is available to read now so just click on through.
My birthday movie is an exciting one this year. Luna Palace cinemas in Perth run a brilliant Monday Night Double Feature program and it just so happens that two of the movies I've been most looking forward to in the past few months are playing together tonight. Looper and Lawless, back to back! So excited, and I'll be around reading your reviews tomorrow no doubt, comparing our experiences.
I recently started a new job and it's been a little on the exhausting and time consuming side of things, so I am probably going to be entering another of my legendary spells of relative inactivity on the blog, before (hopefully) hitting it hard with the excellent Summer season of outdoor cinemas here in Perth. You haven't experienced a great movie until you've seen it outside.
Eat cake and merry my friends, I plan to.
