Queer Eye: A love letter. “Can you believe?!”

Season 2 of Netflix’s Queer Eye has been announced and I am FREAKING out! Keeping up with the latest TV can be a job in itself these days, making sure one gets one’s full diet of Jessica Jones, Last Week Tonight, Stranger Things, The Young Offenders, Westworld, The Good Place… it’s tiring! I’m kinda hoping I break my leg (just a little bit) so I can clear the backlog (and give me a chance to re-visit old favourites like STAR TREK). I guess what I’m saying is that with streaming, it’s hard to find that next hit show to watch. I know that I have spent…

12 weeks to be a strong man?

Strength building workouts that make you slim down without cardio? Okay, sold. Fitness magazines and social media accounts are telling us how we can all get “PECS LIKE THESE NOW” and how to “TRIM DOWN FOR SUMMER IN 12 WEEKS” while posting inspiring pictures people like actors who are paid to get in shape for a role, or juicy fitness models who have seemingly unrealistic results for an everyday Joe.  The last few issues of a certain gents’ fitness magazine I’ve seen in my local Tesco Metro have had the words “GET BIG ARMS NOW” on the cover for the…

Black Panther (spoiler free) review: The King is in.

I’ll admit upfront that I’ve not read many Black Panther comics, but as usual with Marvel movies, that’s not an issue. Like with Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel have taken a lesser-known comic and created a hugely…

Black Panther is right around the corner, Avengers: Infinity War is out this spring and this year’s summer Marvel movie is Ant-Man & The Wasp. Have a look at the first trailer below: The poster has also been released and, yeah, there’s no smudge on your screen! That’s THEM. This first trailer doesn’t give a lot away, apart from some nice gags, and that Thomas the Tank Engine’s role has been replaced by Hello Kitty. Ant-Man & The Wasp will focus on…

Vi for Vendetta

The future is here, in your ear, and she’s telling you to run. A company called LifeBEAM labs (yep) has developed a product called Vi, which is an interactive AI personal trainer. No, this isn’t the beginning of a Black Mirror episode where anyone with a BMI over 25 is forcibly marched thin. This is a real thing, and it’s pretty nifty. Vi is a voice activated artificial intelligent personal trainer. AIPT. for short…? It’s marketed as ‘adapting to an individual’s behaviour, environment and physiology to deliver tailored, real-time coaching ideal for entry to intermediate runners.’ So essentially, she learns, and looks stylish (in…
