Waking from a Blogging Coma | #NOTblogging

by

What the fuck is blogging?

So, it's been a long while! Literally it's been years since I actively opened up this website/blog and actively had a good look at it or even thought about writing anything. Even though the posts have been consistent from #NOTwatching and #NOTplaying podcast posts (which in case you didn't know HAVE NOTHING to do with me creatively! Those awesome podcasts are the work of some people with in the #NOT family). With those posts aside, the last actual "podcast" I released was back in October 2018......even that was a podcast version of a radio show which I recorded back in 2017!!

If I actually go back to when I was actually actively writing or podcasting/radio presenting it's been 3 or 4 years!! That is insane to think I have not been very creative and productive with this website since 2015 in the main. I used to have regular posts coming out that ranged from comedy podcasts! Film reviews! Fake interviews with Gwyneth Paltrow and even plenty of fashion related posts that caused quite a stir with some other bloggers!!

To clarify i have NEVER met GPAL!


If I think as to why I seemed to have gone into some kind of blogging coma, I can only think that my personal life got neglected due to this world and I went on a downward spiral which took me a while to get out off!

"Oh Great! Another Mental Health Post?!"

Well, let's set it straight, maybe this is a post about mental health or maybe it's not! Maybe this an off the cuff post that i needed to write to give myself a boost in creativity, self care and mindfulness! Don't get me wrong, I don't expect people to care/worry/know about my life and circumstances and that is purely because those that know me, know me! This whole world of #NOTlistening and beyond was created for entertainment, fun, creativity and more. I never want that to change, I want that to always be the focal point. With all the podcasts (many still going #NOTwatching and #NOTplaying) archived and still available maybe they can find new listeners every day, which judging by the downloads is still a valid statement.

My blogging side of things blew up with the whole #Mashion and #Meauty world back in 2013-2015 where I was able to express my views on female fashion and beauty with comic tongue in cheek commentary. I managed to hit some nails right on the head whilst also completely missing the mark by miles. Regardless, this was always so much fun. I used this who topic to actually mask my interest and passion into make up and fashion! Something that years ago I joked about but over the past years I have grown to embrace and learn to openly talk about and share my love of!......Yes! I Love make up and fashion as much as the next woman! I don't believe that my gender needs to define my interests! Over the past year I have actually been doing an online make up artists course too! It's pretty obvious to say my gender identification needed looking into and my acceptance of how I see myself. I don't like labels! I am very fluid! I am comfortable. I enjoyed being part of the beauty bloggers community and hope I can maybe return back to writing more but with a more honest approach.

Calm Down!! It's FaceApp on Snapchat!!! 

Anyway, I know I have changed so much within myself since my last conscious efforts to get creative with this blog. My personal well-being has improved and my mental health has really improved. I feel like I am ready to return to sharing my love of things with like-minded people. I had a strange few years where a certain person online used my online world to attack my choices and it really affected how I saw the way I presented myself online. It took me back and kind of killed part of my drive to share and collaborate and create. Only recently have I realised that my interests and life is not something for somebody to dictate and scrutinise when it's not hurting others nor is it affecting the geenral balance of the world. I truly believe that you need retrospective in these things and not allow the online world (including blogging/podcasting) to take over who you are. in 2019 I am older and slightly more aware of my choices and how I can best utilise them to influence my mood.

I am not going to lie, but the minute I started writing this blog post, I had no idea what I was going to write! Seriously, I have just allowed myself to just blurt out whatever I feel needs to be said. It's very therapeutic to just write your truth and this feels like that. Should I even post this? Why not! I am not looking for hits and likes, I just feel that maybe I owed some sort of explanation (not to specific people) in general to get things off my chest. Even now, I am not sure where and why all this came out but it feels good to write again!

I want to pick up where I left, but without the pressure of having to follow rules and guidelines! When I started podcasting I did it as a hobby and bit of fun, then it got more constructed and hard work. I want to find the balance of doing something fun with my mates and sharing creative ideas!

Thanks for reading this, whoever you are, I don't expect this to be a life changing post, many of you are probably skimming through it anyway, but I do appreciate the time you took to click the link and read. I will be back with more posts, maybe more podcasts and maybe more creative ideas to keep me happy.

I always say for people to be the best you!......even if you don't know who that you is, it's worth looking for.

I feel like I should sign this off with something wanky like "Peace Out" but that feels false. Maybe I'll just sign off this post with a quote to live by....

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken"

A Random Photo of Bianca Del-Rio!......For no reason whatsoever!

Final Fantasy VII & the issue of Videogame Nostalgia | #NOTplaying #195

by

Nostalgia is a funny old thing. It can turn even the sanest minds into dribbling wrecks at the mere whiff of childhood happiness. And don't those publishers know it. Why spend hundreds of man-hours coming up with original content when there are all those new platforms to have things ported to and why indeed make a new Final Fantasy game, when you can just mine an existing one? And so it was that the subject of the Final Fantasy VII remake came up during our breakdown of Square Enix's E3 presentation a few weeks back. And Rob found it so hard to comprehend Marcus's enthusiasm, that we thought it was worth spinning out into it's own episode...

Episode #200 inc. Star Wars, Game of Thrones, The Avengers, Breaking Bad & more! | #NOTwatching #200

by

And so we finally come to it... after almost 6 years of drivelling on about movies and TV... the 200th episode of the #NOTwatching Podcast. And to commemorate this milestone, we've decided to go back to our inception date of October 2013 and recall some of our favourite movies and TV since then. You know, the things that really stand out, like the return of Mad Max, the resurrection of Star Wars and the conquering trumph of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And with several of those things kind of wrapping up this year, we've decided to reassess the frequency of this here transmission. Listen on for the reasons and the details, but suffice to say this will be the final 'numbered' episode of the podcast. So long for now and thanks for all the listens :)

Spider-man - Far from Home, Stranger Things & more! | #NOTwatching #199

by

We're reaching a fairly significant milestone on our next episode, so we've had to pack in a lot on this one. We're covering the post-endgame fallout of Spiderman: Far from Home on the big screen whilst dealing with the third season of Stranger Things on the small one at home, but that's not before we get into some exciting news on the future of the MCU* and the dominance of Game of Thrones in this year's Emmy Nominations.

*This episode was recorded prior to the Phase 4 announcements at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend, so excuse our lack of foaming about that.

Google Stadia & the future of videogames | #NOTplaying #194

by

Google announced more details about it's 'Stadia' streaming platfrom prior to E3 and so it's shadow loomed large over the conference. Ubisoft seem to be embracing it, as do Bethesda & Electronic Arts, but where will this leave the first party publishers? Will consoles become a thing of the past as local processing becomes more and more irrelevant? On this episode, we attempt to answer these questions and many more...

Good Omens, Line of Duty, Fleabag, The OA & more! | #NOTwatching #198

by

We're back in TV land this week with quite a mixed bag of things we've been whiling away the hours with. First up is Neil Gaiman's adaptation of his and Terry Pratchett's Good Omens, which we mentioned before in our SXSW episode. We've also been trying to see if there really is anything at all to this Line of Duty phenomenon whilst also checking out the second seasons of Fleabag, Cobra Kai and The OA!

John Wick 3, Godzilla - King of the Monsters, Pokemon Detective Pikachu & more! | #NOTwatching #197

by

It's fair to say that Keanu Reeves is having a bit of a moment right now. Everything he seems to touch turns to gold and there is nothing more golden than the John Wick franchise when it comes to sheer wanton violence. Meanwhile we have a couple of creature features catering for a wide gamut of the genre with Pokemon Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Netflix serves up another shock twisty horror with The Perfection and we check in on our Summer Movie Wager to see how badly wrong it's going!

E3 2019 inc. Cyberpunk 2077, Watchdogs Legion, The Outer Worlds & more! | #NOTplaying #193

by

This being a videogames podcast, what else could this month's episode possibly be about? Yes. It's that time of year again where we go through all the announcements at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles, the mecca of all that is gaming. The annual event that sets the agenda for what we'll be interacting with for the next 12 months and while this year certainly had it's fair share of pulled punches as we teeter on the brink of a next generation of consoles and an inevitably subscription-based streaming future, there were enough release dates set in stone to suggest an exciting year ahead. The only question remaining is how spot-on or not we were with our predictions in the last episode...

Game of Thrones - The Final Season (Spoilers) | #NOTwatching #196

by

As so we come to it at last, after almost a decade, 8 seasons and 73 episodes, the final episodes of arguably the biggest TV series of all time. The internet has been a sea of controversy since the grand finale aired a few weeks back, but what did we make of it? We decided against going into extreme details, hence the surprisingly brief running time this week. We'll be back to talk about all things cinema in a couple of weeks...

Rage 2, PS5 Specs, E3 2019 Predictions & more! | #NOTplaying #192

by

It's been about a week or so since the last post-apocalyptic shooter came out and I'm not even talking about Rage 2 - which kicks of this month's episode, with Will having given it a good once over. Rob's found himself getting sucked into the actual real-life sport that is Formula 1 after picking up Codemasters' F1 2018 for a song and Marcus probably leads the charge with some of the wackiest E3 predictions ever recorded. We also weigh in on the recently announced target specs for PS5 and what it might mean for the next generation of consoles. Next month: listen to how absolutely bang on our predictions were. #hypetrain #e3 #etc

Our first Summer Movie Wager + Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Spoilers | #NOTwatching #195

by

We're trying something a bit different on this week's show. Fans of the slashfilmcast and those that remember the Totally Rad Show may be familiar with the phenomenon that is the Summer Movie Wager and thanks to the clever folk behind thesummermoviewager.com anyone can join in the fun. If you aren't familiar, then follow the link for a full and thorough explanation. Suffice it to say, this episode is entirely devoted to Marcus and Rob's picks for what they believe will be the top 10 highest grossing movies of the summer. It also kind of acts as a handy guide to what will be hitting the big screen over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

Oh yeah, we also briefly get into some spoilery talk about the latest season of Star Trek: Discovery after the credits, so definitely tune out before then if you're not up to date with it!

Avengers: Endgame - Spoiler Special | #NOTwatching #194

by

So the spoiler ban is officially lifted, the Spider-man: Far from Home trailer is safe to watch and judging by the humongous box office take everyone in the world who gives a crap has seen it already. You should be safe to listen to us process it then, because there's a lot to unpack here in what is surely the closest we will ever come to a finale in the MCU. It's all been leading to this, for over a decade now and over 20 films. It felt right to dedicate an entire episode to the epicness that is Avengers: Endgame. Enjoy!

Love, Death & Robots, The Umbrella Academy, True Detective & more! | #NOTwatching #193

by

Game of Thrones* might be dominating the small screen right now, but there's been a lot of other great shows this year. This week, we're kicking of with David Fincher and Tim Miller's animated anthology series, Love, Death & Robots. Also on Netflix is the adaptation of Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy and Ricky Gervais' After Life, while elsewhere we have Ben Stiller's surprisingly compentent prison break drama, Escape From Dannemora and the third season of True Detective. All this and more on another TV-focussed #NOTwatching Podcast!

*We're saving our final round of Game of Thrones released coverage for a detailed spoilery chat once the final season is done, so look out for that in a month or so's time...

EGX Rezzed, BAFTAS, Stadia, Vampire Bloodlines 2, Borderlands 3 & more! | #NOTplaying #191

by

After a few lacklustre episodes (we just hadn't had time to play much of anything new - sorry!) we're making it up to you this month with an absolutely packed show. First up we have to address some recent sequel announcements of the vampiric and borderlands variety, as well as the reveal of Google's new games streaming service, Stadia. Will's been on post apocalyptic shooter duty with Far Cry New Dawn and Metro Exodus, Rob's been getting a bit miffed by the new Hearthstone expansion and Marcus has been having a party with um.... Mario Party?

And then we're off on our annual pilgrimage to London's Tobacco Dock, for EGX Rezzed where we all got to play a bunch of different things: Ape Out, Divinity Fallen Heroes, Everspace, My Friend Pedro & much much more... And all that before hobnobbing with Videogame Royalty at the BAFTA Games Awards, the winners of which, we discuss in detail here...

Happy?

Captain Marvel, Alita: Battle Angel, Green Book & more! | #NOTwatching #192

by

Ever since Thanos clicked his fingers and Nick Fury dropped that pager shortly before turning to dust, we've been wondering what role Captain Marvel would play in and/or could do to save the MCU. And while the recent trailers confirmed she would indeed play a part in Avengers: Endgame, little was known of her origin. Until now. Captain Marvel is the first fully female fronted film in the MCU canon and after easily banking a billion dollars worldwide, you have to wonder why it took them so long. Listen on, dear listener, for our thoughts on Marvel's latest, Alita: Battle Angel, Netflix's The Dirt & Triple Frontier and a bunch of movies Rob binged on during his recent flights to the USA and back.

SXSW 2019 Special - inc. Good Omens, Us & more... | #NOTwatching #191

by

It's a bit of a special one this week, since we actually had boots on the ground at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Amazon had an enormous presence at the event with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman & the late great Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. We witnessed the world premiere of Chris Morris's The Day Shall Come and while we unfortunately missed Jordan Peele's Us when we were there due to an accomodation mishap, we made sure to catch it locally before we recorded this.

Star Wars Games - Past, Present, Future | #NOTplaying #190

by

There's been a fair amount of news and controversy surrounding the Star Wars franchise and it's current usage in videogames recently, not least of which is the apparent level of de-satisfaction being levelled at EA's channelling of it. There's even been rumblings of Disney's own 'Lucasarts' trademark being resurrected from the ashes (though this episode was recorded a while before that). So here's our musings on the situation, our history with the games and other assorted ramblings... Enjoy!

Russian Doll, The Punisher, Titans & more! | #NOTwatching #190

by

Sorry for the interruption in service, but some holidays had to be taken amidst the usual schedule, which you'll here more about in future episodes. So this one was recorded quite a few weeks ago now, but the show's we're talking about are no less relevant. Russian Doll opened Netflix's year big and while we know the Punisher is cancelled now, it's second and final season isn't one to miss!

More Assassin's Creed, More Spider-man, DLC for both & not much more. Sorry :/ | #NOTplaying #189

by

It's only February and already we have some games that might be in the conversation for Game of the Year 2019: Apex Legends, Metro: Exodus, Slay the Spire, Tetris 99, Resident Evil 2... We've also had Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Far Cry: New Dawn & Crackdown 3. Good or bad, one thing you can be sure of is that at time of recording, we've #NOT played any of them. We might not be on the bleeding edge of gaming this month, but at least we're honest. So instead of any insightful conversation about any games to have come out so far this year, enjoy us droning on about some DLC for stuff we've already been banging on about for ages. Because #toomanygames #gamesaretoolong etc. Hopefully we'll have played something new before E3 rolls around...

The Favourite, Velvet Buzzsaw, Oscars 2019 & more! | #NOTwatching #189

by

Having spent the first month of 2019 previewing the hell out of it, this week's we're digging through some pretty significant news stories that have kicked off the year. More Ghostbusters! More Mission Impossibles! That's no small amount of awesome. We also run through this year's Oscar Nominations - especially the one's we've seen - before moving on to some more movies we have actually seen, including Dan Gilroy and Jake Gylenhaal's Nightcrawler follow-up, Velvet Buzzsaw, Timur Bekmambetov's first of many 'screenlife' projects, Searching & what we especially hope to be the middle part of Drew Goddard's genre deconstruction trilogy, Bad Times at the El Royale.
