I have less time, less tolerance for bullshit, more interest in good taste, more confidence in my own good judgment.” – Nick Hornby “Songbook” Surfer: Teen Confronts Fear is why I don’t trust Film Twitter.

Iina kahdella iillä

Vähintään yksi printtikirja kuukaudessa Tämä voisi olla se hetki, jolloin blogiini eksynyt kirjabloggaaja tai bookstagrammaaja pyörittelee silmiään. Yksi printtikirja! Tähän tavoitteeseen on kuitenkin erittäin hyvä syy. Kuuntelin viime vuonna 57 kirjaa ja luin vain 13, eli näiden kahden lukukokemustyypin välillä on melkoinen kuilu. Rakastan “oikeita kirjoja” yli kaiken, ja jos vuosi 2018 toi kirjat yleisellä […]

The Looping Header

The role of a lead commentator is an interesting one. Describe the events of the game as they unfold. Provide context to the event and the individuals or groups involved. Deliver that golden moment, the “Aguerroooooo” or “oh ye beautyyyyyy” that marks a moment almost as much as the act itself. Always supplied by the […]

The Irresponsible Reader

Matthew Hanover’s Not Famous was released last week (see my initial post about it)– and he was clearly and understandably busy with that. Still, he took the time to answer a few questions for me — which I greatly appreciate. As usual, this is designed to whet your appetite for the author so you go […]

Happy New Year. In 2018 I did a lot of jobs to my many railways. The two garden railways had a lot done; the Conifer Railway was rebuilt as it had rotted and the 6-Track railway was taken up, the wood retreated and a 4 track put down with some platforms on the inner and outer circle. […]

Alexandra Palace and the London Model Engineer exhibition. A little sparser than previously and slightly less interesting. Still worth an afternoon out though. Always like the live-steam railway exhibits. This is a gauge 1 layout using miniature real coal in a real miniature firebox with an authentic coal-fired aroma! There is a minor campaign to […]

The Maple Leafs are hearing footsteps – or for them, the ominous crunch of steel on ice – as a whole lot of pursuers make their presence known. Approaching the NHL all-star break, the Eastern Conference looks like the Don Valley Parkway at peak rush, leaving the Leafs wondering where their big points advantage went […]

SUNRISE, Fla. — It’s hurting the Maple Leafs that William Nylander isn’t scoring, but it’s painful to think of Auston Matthews being dragged down, too. Both young stars fired blanks on Friday when the Leafs were in search of a key goal that might have put away the 0-for-7 Panthers and swept this Florida road […]
