As a rule, on my previous blogs I have shied away from doing list posts, but here on the Balding Geek, that will change. Lists are great for loads of stuff. So, for my first list, I want to try and let you know what my favourite films of last year were. There is a slightly self-serving motive behind this post. Whilst putting this list together I realised that my film watching last year comprised overwhelmingly of Superhero films. Whilst I think those films are great and serve a purpose, I feel that I am missing out on so much more with other genres of film. So, this post will serve as a basis for me looking back this time next year at what my favourite films were this year in the hope that I have diversified my viewing. OK enough of the blurb, let’s get on with it.

Well, here we are; 2017, 2016 seems so long ago, and may it rest in peace. This New Year offers me a chance to spread my wings and give myself a challenge and see if I can finally make something I am proud of and hopefully give something that people may find intrinsically interesting along the way. It has been a long slog for me to let go of the past and realise that I really did need to change. Procrastination has been a thing for me for so long and once I realised that I had that problem I knew I had to make some hard choices and make them soon… that was 6 months ago, guess that procrastination still needs some work.
It was announced on Saturday that the new Doctor Who companion would be played by Pearl Mackie. Her character’s name is Bill – and that is pretty much all the concrete evidence we have about her character at this time. However, me being the curious nosey kind of geek, I decided to look a little deeper at the subtle clues they have given us and I am about to make some wildly unsubstantiated guesses at what I think her character will be like.
It isn’t often that I go rambling through the iTunes Podcast directory just aimlessly. Usually I am hunting for something recommended by a friend or to fix some stupid mistake I made with my Podcast subscriptions. However, the other night (or should I say early hours of the morning) I found myself doing just that. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular and was just reading a few of the descriptions of Podcasts to see if anything took my fancy.
