Recently I've been reading this crazy messed up manga called dead tube which I was really enjoying until it introduced a story trope which I hate: Which one of us is the killer? This story tends to take place on a place where everyone knows each other and nobody can escape. Often a ship in … Continue reading Which One Of Us Is The Killer – A Story Trope I Tend To Hate
So I went on holiday recently and thought I'd talk about it! The place I went to was Peterborough for Soul Survivor week B. It's essentially a field in the middle of nowhere where people go with their churches to pitch up tents and learn about/worship Jesus. Before you immediately vomit and leave I want … Continue reading Soul Survivor – Holy Spirit or Crowd Manipulation?
Monty Python's Life of Brian is such a funny and hilarious film that follows Brian, a person who many people confuse with the messiah in the same time period of Jesus.

What is the worst thing an anime can be? Well I guess the worst thing an anime could be is something that brainwashes you, drives you to suicide or hypnotizes you into doing terrible acts of violence. That should be obvious, but assuming the anime doesn't do that (like 100% of all anime (hopefully and … Continue reading Boring IS the worst
Hey guys Ross here, I'm off on holiday for like a week or something! I'll be in the middle of nowhere with a group of friends at a festival in the UK which is where I live. I'm sure it will be a great time! But the internet signal and battery life tends to be … Continue reading See you later!

Anyway results day came … Continue reading A Huge Relief
