Movie watch - the vampire returns

I'm a self confessed vampire junky. I'll gladly overdose on any good vampire book, DVD, movie, comic, graphic novel or TV show if it involves vampires. Why? Because vampires are hot, that's why! And they're cool... I mean who wouldn't want to live forever?

DVD Review - Band Of Brothers

My Mussels Ain’t From Brussels!

I recently read a fantastic book by American author, Taras Grescoe called Bottom Feeder; How To Eat Ethically In A World Of Vanishing Seafood. It worried me to say the least, and though I don’t wish anyone any undue stress I suggest everyone dips into the pages of this book and picks up some sage wisdom. It outlines, as the title suggests, a world in which we have ravaged our oceans to their very limits, and beyond in some cases. It describes the collapses of various fisheries and the areas in the ocean aptly named dead zones. Grescoe details ways in which we can be more informed and ethical in our munching on the bounties of the seas.
