Wales Comiccon

Wales Comiccon first launched in 2008 and has remained one of the main places I go to to meet what I class as 80s legends. It has grown from strength to strength over the years and is now celebrating it’s 10 year anniversary! For those of you who are unfamiliar with Comiccons, they are a […]

MCM Comiccon Manchester

For those of us of a geeky nature, this weekend sees MCM Comiccon’s huge event taking place in Manchester! I am a huge fan of Conventions and Comiccons. I’ve met quite a few famous people at them, (I’m genuinely not bragging that I hang around with celebs in real life – I don’t, and I […]

Interview with Annabel Port

I was genuinely delighted when I read that Annabel Port’s book, Annabel vs the Internet, was being released after successfully being funded on Unbound. I stumbled across Adrift, a podcast she co-hosts with Geoff Lloyd, about 6 months ago. Adrift is basically a podcast for people who occasionally need advice with social situations, and who […]

Digitiser : The Show – Interview with Mr. Biffo!

If you were alive in the 80s, and you’re still alive today, the chances are you were also alive throughout the 90s. What an exciting time they were! Full of futuristic things like flying cars, teleporters and time travel. Who am I trying to kid?!? The 80s were obviously far better. I mean, for a […]

On Safari

On Safari was an early Childrens TV show, shown during the afternoons from 1981 onwards. It was great entertainment after a long day working hard at school. (Or […]
