Will I Love Your Blog?

I'd like to accept this I Love Your Blog award from Kristine of WenchdGrafix Designs who has labeled me her Guilty Pleasure in the blog reading world. You can read what she had to say about me here (right down the bottom of her post).

Kristine also combined another award - with the same set of rules - so, technically I received two awards. I've just chosen the one with the best graphic to display here.

The rules for both these awards say that if you receive it you're supposed to link to the blog of the person who gave it to you (done that) and choose seven more recipients whose blogs you love... oh dear... not so much a guilty pleasure any more, just guilty.

I have to admit I don't read a lot of personal/individual blogs regularly. At least not regularly enough to say 'I love your blog'.

Of the blogs I do read, the majority are boring technology, business, art news and social networking news written by collaborations of people who like to think their opinion actually matters more than cracking a smile every once in a while (hey that rhymes). Pseudo journalists and straight faced niche experts who've all had humor lobotomies.

So remember, back at the start I said, "I'd like to accept this I Love Your Blog award..." well... I'd like to but I've yet to find one guilty pleasure blog... how am I supposed to find seven?

I know quite a few people visit my blog. If you're reading this then I guess you're one of them. Do you have a blog of your own? Do you think it's something I would enjoy? Will it keep me coming back day after day? Will I subscribe to your RSS Feed?

In short, will I love your blog?

Leave your blog link in the comments below and make a comment telling me why you think I'd like your blog. Here's a tip, I may be an artist but I'm not that fascinated by 'work in progress' art blogs. I'm a thinker and I like ideas. The more imaginative the better.

No doubt I'm going to be underwhelmed with the response but, if you'd like me to mention your blog in a special post explaining why I think others will love your blog, not much will happen if you don't leave a comment.

I want to love your blog... not in an icky way either... I promise I won't read in my underwear... stop thinking about me in my underwear... I'm not that kind of guilty pleasure!

  1. Hello. Well, I thought you might like my blog. Don't be put off by the name, I do more then crochet. I am an avid photography buff and comedy-seeker-outter. I put things on my blog that make me laugh or amaze me. So, take a gander.

  2. Hey Nicole, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I did take a look at your blog and enjoyed some of your photos etc.

    Not enough words for me though. I like to hear about the behind the scenes stuff on photos etc. I'm the same with art. If I really like something I want to know more about it than just what I see.

    Good blog though.

Bukirk Glamping - Camping in Style, Clare Valley, South Australia

Glamping is for those who want to experience the outdoor lifestyle of camping without foregoing the luxuries of basic motel accommodation.

Bukirk (pronounced 'Buh -kirk') Glamping, located on a rural property, in the Clare Valley, just outside of Clare, South Australia, is by far one of the best accommodation experiences my partner and I have enjoyed to date. Although Bukirk's Facebook page says you could bring a family (I guess additional bedding can be arranged?), everything is more clearly targeted at couples, looking for a romantic getaway where the accommodation is a memorable part of the experience, and not just somewhere to stay.

BEILEXING Autocycle Style ABS Cartoon Building Brick - 378pcs - COLORMIX - Motorcycle kit Product Review

The first time I saw the Beilexing Brick Motorcycle Kit I thought it was nothing short of stunning. I'm not even a fan of motorcycles in general but the detail of this set and how much it captured the spirit of a real world motorcycle really impressed me.

Then I saw the set cost considerably less than a similar sized kit from the Lego Technic range I just couldn't pass it up.

When the kit arrived it did not disappoint. Made from ABS plastic the bricks are fully compatible with, and are of comparable quality to, official Lego bricks. I did notice that the tires and chain links seemed a little less sturdy than their Lego equivalents but beyond that you'd be hard pressed to say the quality of the parts wasn't almost as good.

The model is 35.00 x 10.00 x 6.00 cm / 13.78 x 3.94 x 2.36 inches in size and should be no trouble for intermediate to advanced builders to construct with a clear, and easy to follow instruction manual.

Virtual Reality Addiction Meets Online Shopping and Death!

I'm certainly not the first person to predict the idea of immersive virtual worlds. Movies like Tron (1982) and The Lawnmower Man (1992) are two of the earliest popular culture references to the concept I can think of, off the top of my head. Then of course there is The Matrix (1999) where the VR world idea really hit the mainstream big time.

However, back in early 2005, the practice of online shopping, with real money, for digital products in virtual worlds like Second Life (which was more cutting edge back then) began to meld in my mind with the idea of corporations controlling that experience through marketing and advertising.

The Awkward Amy Schumer Interview That Wasn't Her Fault

Last week comedian Amy Schumer participated in a very awkward interview with Mamamia, Columnist/Journalist/Senior Editor (sorry I'm not sure which job description is most appropriate) Monique Bowley. The interview went so badly that Monique simply had to just own it and write about just how badly it went, and podcast about it as well. Even better the whole interview was captured on video which you can watch below as a precursor to my thoughts on the aftermath.

Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War (2018) *Spoiler Free*

Ten years in the making and Marvel finally releases part one of the Avengers versus Thanos, A.K.A. Avengers: Infinity War.

After seeing all 18 films in the MCU prior to this, and liking most of them, I was pretty confident this movie would not disappoint.

Other than a few minor issues - that are all my personal taste and in no way reflect on the quality of the film - it really delivers. Thanos is indeed the big, bad villain of the MCU that we've been antcipating.
