Absoloutly epic headliners at the Friday night of the Bram Stoker International Film Festival, much better than when I saw them at M'era Luna a few years back (there's something a bit wrong about "Moonchild" in broad daylight).
You know I saw someone say online that there weren't very many people there, I thinknthat oerson must have slipped into a parallel universe though as The Spa was packed! More people than I have evr seen in there.

Last weekend I went AWOL from blogging because I was in Whitby for The Bram Stoker International Film Festival.
This year the flat I stayed in had an overall theme of yellow!
Or paint an entire house yellow, whatever floats your boat.
It was a very nice place, if a little bright!

My character Shala
Ok confession time, I didn't post an entry yesterday because most of my free time was eaten up by getting completely lost in Dragon Age Origins.
I'd heard a lot of awesome reviews and always intended to get around to playing it at some point and never did, and a couple of weeks ago it was free on Origins so I thought, heh five years later maybe it's time to have a try?
It has eaten my life!
For a game that is five years old and I got for free I am incredibly impressed, I will post a full review once I complete my first playthrough.
I think it's pretty certain at this point I will quite happily pay for the rest of the series :)

Not that it ever was.
So making the news at the moment here in the not so United Kingdom lately has been the Chad Evans case.
TL;dr Sheffield footballer convicted of raping a woman, served half his sentence before being let out, now wants his job back, oh and one of our daytime TV stars had this to say:
Yep Judy because saying that you aren't defending someone before you defend them magically makes sense somehow, and then people sent her daughter rape threats on twitter (because somehow that makes sense?), and the red tops are finally calling for an end to internet trolls and want to call the law after Judy's daughter (not being funny, nobody deserves rape threats, at all, period, but surely if you're going to name a law after someone it makes more sense to go for someone like ooh say Anita Sarkeesian who has to put up with this bullshit every day), anyway Mr Evans's mother is now a "victim of a Feminist gang", and trying to imagine what a Feminist gang would look like is actually the one thing keeping me from hurling abuse at the TV every time I switch it on and see that this story is still ongoing.
A Feminist gang would no doubt be the most diverse gang ever, but we all have to get a new burning bra tattoo every time we Misander.

I have already mentioned that I don't want to wear a veil, but I would quite like something netted on me, and I think perhaps I would like to wear a lace mask.
I really like the idea of wearing something like this over my eyes, it gives a little mystery and glamour in my opinion!
