Links! Sherlock! Packing! Shopping! Restaurants!

The Sherlock fandom is the fandom that waited. We’ve waited almost two years for answers, for another fix of everyone’s favourite sleuth. And we’re going to get them. We have air dates, we have episode names, and now we have a whole bunch of new pictures to keep us on our toes until episode 1 […]

Links! Poe! London! 20s! Doctor Who!

Edgar Allan Poe on the joy of marginalia¬†& what handwriting says about a character. How we only talk to ourselves in the margins. Worth a read, even more so in the context of the book I am currently reading, which I wholly recommend. The most addictive game in London is back. I’m stuck on 88. […]

It’s easy to opt to stay indoors, or limit yourself to tourist spots, or even rely on your friends for entertainment. But what if you […]

Education Studying for a Masters degree in Digital Media is not free!
