TV Trailers

OMG, the Arrow season 7 sizzle reel!

I love Arrow, ok?

There's been some dubious decisions over the years, but I'm still a total fangirl, and this suggests a return to the dark and gritty stuff I love!

(Better not just be trailer-bait! Argh!)

(Warning: flashing images, graphic violence, SPOILERS for previous series)


This week I've been totally obsessed with the webcomic Band Vs Band, for which I totally blame Casey @ The Canadian Lesbrarian 

It's also available in print from the creator's web-store.

At first I wasn't really sure about it since the style is a) uber-sweet and b) uber-retro, but after a couple-a pages it had me; hook, line, sinker.

So this is about two bands in one town who are the antithesis of each other - The Candy Hearts are 1950s diners and malt-shops and wholesome fun, whereas The Sourballs are punk and sex and drugs and rock'n'roll.

And their front-ladies, Honey Hart and Turpentine, are totally crushing on each other. Not that they'd ever let anyone else know... right?

So this is the slowest of slow-burn F/F romances, but it's totally worth it - cos by the time we get there, you're SCREAMING for them to get together!

Honey is all responsibility, sweetness, and light; Turpentine is all about living fast and loud and rebelliously!

And I should NOT relate so hard in equal measure to two characters who are such opposites of each other... but I totally do! 😅

Other Stuff

Eminem performing Venom on Jimmy Kimmel is awesome!

(And thank God for YouTube, cos otherwise we here in not-America would never have seen it at all!)

There's two particular sections I love in this vid:

The first is what I like to call 'Middle-Aged Slim-Shady Vs Stairs' where it becomes clear that Shady's knees aren't quite so supple as they used to be.

I don't think this was intentional, lol!

The second section, which is actually intentional, is 'Marshall Mathers auditions for any comedy movies currently casting.'

He aces said audition.

  1. Kamikaze is an awesome album! I could've done without the homophobia and 'r' word, but there you go. It's still awesome despite that.

    I have the Venom song permanently stuck in my head! (Next to Panic! At the Disco's latest album, ofc. Lol)
