Blah with.........Drag Queen Ella Veryde | Blah Blah Land Podcast | S2 E03



Blah with........Drag Queen Ella Veryde | S2 E03

Welcome (BACK!) to the podcast of "Blah Blah Land!" The podcast that celebrates people living their best life.

In this episode I was joined by the ever so fabulous and talented Ella Veryde via ZOOM! as we discussed..

- The ways to stay happy during a pandemic

- Gender Expression

- How She became a Drag Queen

- The benefits of therapy and how it should normalised in todays society.

- Maintaining that happiness

And more...

After a good few months of not podcasting, it was great to sit down and talk to Ella (aka Matt) who gave off such a warm, calm and inviting presence. She was open about her Drag journey and how times have been tough previously but a solid support network of friends can truly move you forward.

We spoke in depth about the benefits of therapy and how it should be as normalised as going to the gym. Having good Mental Health is integral to functioning on a day to day basis.

We spoke about how Drag is seen as an expression of her gender and her fluidity, something I am very much on board with. Being able to express the ways she is feeling and enhancing the gender expression is admirable. 

I know Ella outside of drag and she is an inspiration and breathe of fresh air in today's world. I hope you truly enjoy it.

The subjects we touch upon, highlight where I envision the podcast to go moving forward. It is a relaxed discussion with opinions that might not always be shared between listeners but valid none the less. I want to maintain open and honest conversations where everyone involved feels a part of it and included.

When was the Noughties? | Ep.1 - Millennium Bugs and Bleach | Podcast



When was the noughties?

Episode One - Millennium Bugs and Bleach | Podcast

The first in a series of retrospective podcasts centred around the decade that was "The Noughties!". From the year 2000 to 2009, it was a decade in between generations! The internet was as fresh as it could be alongside the rise in technology such as iPods, Phones with snake(!) and DVD players!. It was a decade of celeb culture and reality TV arrived with a new sense of who we suddenly called "celebs".

The noughties was a decade that didn't know it's place in the world and probably still doesn't. A decade that sparked a future generation and changed the landscape of a previous generation. People looked to the future and lapped up living in the new century, whilst old school attitudes were being replaced with "questioning" and "What if's". the decade of the "noughties!" was a very imperfect time in a very imperfect world.

Ok, that was deep, but I am only infatuated with this time purely because I lived it!...…and can't remember fuck all about it, without digging deep into it. A time that I spent 10 years growing up in and probably spent the majority of it working and drinking (Not at the same time of course) and just day dreaming through it...…I want to look back and wonder what the fuck happened.

In this, the very first episode, I sat down with good friend of mine Anna Johnston (AKA Miss Trout) and had a discussion about 

  • The Millennium! - Partying like it's literally 1999! and seeing in a new century/millennium! A Once in a lifetime thing!
  • The Dreaded Millennium Bug! - That crazy time when we all believed the world would simply end because computers are either too smart/stupid to do anything when it turned 00:00 and everything life apparently!
  • Big Brother - The birth of the Reality TV phenomenon! - More on that in future episodes indeed!
And more! Check out this first episode, where we set the stage and start the conversation. 
What do YOU remember from the "noughties"? Let me know!

Horizon Forbidden West, Ratchet & Clank: A Rift Apart, Before Your Eyes & More! | #NOTplaying


It's been fairly slim pickings on the new game front so far this year, but Sony at least had one card to play in the latest installment of Ratchet & Clank, which sees the lovable lombax and his mechanised pal span multiple realities in an adventure that truly harnesses the power of PS5.

And as if that wasn't enough, they drop a State of Play on us deep-diving into the upcoming Horizon Forbidden West, which whilst spanning both console generations, surely couldn't look more beautiful if they tried.

There's also some non-sony goodness to be had, mostly on the fighting front, with Guilty Gear Strive and the remaster of Virtua Fighter V and a fair amount more besides... Enjoy!

A Quiet Place Part 2, Nobody, Loki, Sweet Tooth & more! | #NOTwatching


Cinema is BACK! And with it an actual proper release schedule of blockbuster films that have been put on hold for more than a year! Chiefly among those is A Quiet Place 2, which while being completely unnecessary yet almost entirely inevitable stays true to the original's formula and expands it's universe. Also at the flicks is the Bob Odenkirk brutalfest, Nobody, which sees the small screen's favourite corrupt lawyer going to town on fools like a less beardy John Wick.

Meanwhile Loki returns, this time to the small screen in his own Disney+ show, graphic novel adaptation, Sweet Tooth lands on Netflix and Sean Bean stars in the delightlfully grim Time on the BBC.

Before all that though, we dive into the recent shock (in a good way) news that Good Omens is coming back for a second season! Hoorah!
