That feeling when you could have sworn you updated your website more recently than it turns out that you actually did.

A reminder: when you return your VHSs to your local video store, please don't forget to be kind, and rewind!

I love listening to people talk who can remember the names and faces of film actors.

They'll be like "Mmm, yes, another stellar outing for Reticulated Thomas, really enjoying his oeuvre" and i'll be like 😀

Tristan problems: a mandatory safety video played a sample of the Star Wars theme and now that will be on an endless loop in my head.
