by JodieAvoon 06/04/2013
In the past few years, the zombie apocalypse has grabbed our imaginations by the tail and shook until we were all full of fear. Movies, comics, TV programmes, survival guides, you name it, we’ve had it. From Shaun of the Dead to The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks, we are all living in a […]

Happy Birthday RDJ!

by JodieAvoon 04/04/2013
On April 4th 1965, a man was born, and little did his parents know what they had bestowed upon this world. A man like no other. I am of course talking about Robert Downey Jr. I am a huge fan of this guy (a fangirl, if you please) and this is my birthday celebration for […]

When the Geek Strain Takes a Hold

by JodieAvoon 03/04/2013
As you’re all probably aware, I’m fairly new to the geek world and its wonders. I had always been a weird human being. I had never really fit in anywhere and never really understood why. Now I know. I am a geek, and I am proud of it. Since delving into the geek world, I […]

by JodieAvoon 01/04/2013
The long anticipated new series of Doctor Who hit our screens Saturday night, and what a magnificent start it was! Titled “The Bells of Saint John”, we find our Doctor in the heart of 21st Century London surrounded by people who seem to be disappearing. Their bodies, empty.

Curse Your Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal!

by JodieAvoon 31/03/2013
My fellow geekians. I have taken this time to put the metaphorical pen to paper and share with you my recent experience. Upon falling ill and having to glue myself to my bed with nothing but my laptop for company, I was told to watch a quite famous TV show amongst the geek population, ripped […]

Call the feds, call NASA, call the men in white coats for I have risen to a new dimension with the sheer thrill that those thirty seconds caused! Saturday 30th March 2013 brings the new […]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children – 9GPPs

by JodieAvoon 11/03/2013
Straight to the point: With a strong storyline and a menagerie of wonderfully provoking photographs, I read this book in a single afternoon and turned the last page, willing for there to be more with the power of my mind. Sadly, it didn’t work. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is the debut novel by […]

Captain Jack – are you there?

by JodieAvoon 02/03/2013
It seems that John Barrowman is in trouble with the BBC. In recognition of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary, John had intimated that he was in talks with the BBC surrounding his involvement in the exciting endeavour. However, a recent tweet from him saying “Re 50th I didn’t say in what capacity or what medium […]

Doctor Who Quick Read a Quick Let Down – 5GPPs

by JodieAvoon 17/02/2013
Straight to the point: The Doctor Who “quick reads,” produced by the BBC, I thought was going to be the best value for money I have ever come across. Written by many different authors and for only a pound you get to read an original adventure featuring the Doctor, but the question remains: does it stand […]
