Star Wars: An Empire Reborn

Posted on

This week sees the release of the latest installment in the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi. Star Wars is a special thing for me personally. Like many others I have never known life without it. It has been a companion in some form since infancy. At times it was the centre of my entire universe and days without the battle of the heroic rebel alliance against Darth Vader and the evil empire whether on-screen or on a bedroom floor, were not true days at all.

Ramblings of a Former 9-to-5er: Ep. 2 – Killer Question to ask the Interviewer

Posted on

Have you any questions for us? How many times have you heard that? You recognise it? It’s that standard finishing the interview scenario. The balance of power shifts somewhat and now you are asking questions of the interviewer. It’s invigorating right, that relief and sudden gain of control somewhat? I always liked this part of the interview. Instantly I’d feel my body relax and then I’d hit them with one of my favourites, the killer question, as I like to call it.

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a screening of “IT”, the remake of the 1990 made for television mini-series which was itself adapted from Stephen Kings horror opus about a killer clown that feeds on children. No really.

The originals, first half, if you will, was set in 1960 (as opposed to the novels 57-58 setting) and saw a group of outsider children square up against the monster terrorising their small town lives during school vacation. It was all white picket fences and crew cuts and pompadour hairdos. Why? Well, it’s simple really. Stephen King himself grew up around this particular time. The ‘50s are to him, what the ‘80s are to a lot of us and so it is a decade, which he has referenced quite a bit in his work.

Ramblings of a Former 9-to-5er: Ep. 1 – Why Web Design?

It’s not easy starting a web design business, well any business really for that matter, not in any shape or form. Not one bit. It requires patience, and a whole lot of grit, true grit, John Wayne style. It’s not for the faint of heart nor the hardcore realist. Those who take comfort in seeing a regular amount of money being deposited into their account every week without fail should steer clear. It’s not for those who reach 5 o clock every evening and completely switch off thereafter. No sir.
