Having Facebook has paid off today as I returned home to find this on my News Feed.

As any Batman fan would be, I was instantaneously excited beyond belief. It had been rumoured that after the death of the Joker in Arkham City that in order to resurrect him the next installment would have to be a prequel. And now here it is willed into solid reality.

However, this time round the B-man will not be developed by Rocksteady. Instead Warner Bros Games Montreal take the grapple. Should we be worried? Haha.

I’ll post more as I discover it, but I am really looking forward to this. Warnerr Bros has alot of pressure on it to deliever.

Uh-oh!

Uh-oh!

I just saw this on Facebook and as my previous post discussed, this is exactly what I don’t want to happen. The story and the characters are unique. Please let’s not compare them.

The Host

leave a comment »

Today, I read on The Host Facebook page that Stephenie Meyer plans to write a sequel to The Host, and I must admit I was as excited as a fan of the book should be. The Host, in my opinion, works well as a story in it’s own right. Since seeing the trailer for the Host film, I have gone between highly anticipating it, and doubting where they will take it. I have a constant fear that The Host may end up being compared to Stephenie Meyer’s other series, Twilight.

As soon as people hear that The Host is by Stephenie Meyer, whether a fan or not, they immediately judge it. I’d like to make it clear that there are no sparkly vampires or bestiality in The Host, and it is fact aimed at a more adult audience, whereas Twilight is in the Young Adult category.  My concern is The Host will be misinterpreted as just for a teenage audience and the story will suffer for it.
I’m hoping, of course, the film, released on the 29th March, will prove me wrong, and they will have hit the proverbial nail on the head, that my worries would have been for nothing. So I will post after seeing the film and hopefully I will have been proven wrong.

Isolation

leave a comment »

Apologies for moaning but I have a feeling of impending isolation.

I recently lost a friend who simply decided we weren’t friends anymore, and I wasn’t actually given a legitimate reason for this. However, we’re still friends with the rest of the group, and I’m worried this will eventually lead to awkward situations, more so for our friends, which I don’t want to happen.

As for my other friends, people have a tendency to be unreliable. I’ll meet someone, we’ll become good friends, and then they’ll disappear because they get distracted my someone/something else or in some cases they want more than friendship but I don’t reciprocate. So I am then left feeling lonely, because the person you spent time with, and spoke to has just… Gone. I attempt to keep in touch but my attempts are futile.

And now all this has lead me to believe I’m just going to end up fully alone. I don’t know if anyone has been or is in a similar situation, and has any advice, but I feel like I need to approach new friendships differently. It’s made me wary. Advice etc would be welcome, thanks.

Daydream Diaries.

leave a comment »

Everyday I get lost in my own meandering thoughts. They serve as a happy distraction from the real world. Sometimes random, nonsensical or even philosophical, I thought I’d start sharing them.

People tend to make me jump a lot because to me they appear out of nowhere and shock me out of my own daydream, and all they really did is ask me if they can try something on? (Note: I work in a clothes store, but yeah.)

Anywho, stay tuned for the first entry.

I hope to become better at blogging and writing in general as I post, so forgive me if my posts aren’t the best to begin with. Writing is something I’ve always loved and really miss since leaving college, so bare with me and fingers crossed my spark will return.
