My first guest blog and more

Here's me hamming up the merits of The Tube Riders on my first ever guest blog, on the very pretty website Bookingly Yours, run by a very friendly lady called Jenai.

This was my first attempt at a guest blog and so I went for the "shock" value, being outrageous enough to diss The Hunger Games (which looks like a pretty good movie actually) for not having any swearing (I haven't read it but I did Google it to check, and apparently there are a couple of uses of "damn" but that's all), and including a picture of me wearing a stupid hat.

I'm not sure if it'll work but as I haven't sold a book in the last week I guess it couldn't exactly harm my sales unless I grab a pick and start digging a tunnel.

Going back to The Hunger Games, last week I watched Battle Royale, a movie which many people (not me as I haven't seen them both) claim was ripped off by The Hunger Games.  Some kind soul had uploaded to Youtube, and although I haven't seen it in about ten years it was still a very good movie.  When it comes to shock movies the Asians do it best, it seems.  Over the weekend I also watched an American movie called The Univited which was a a teeny horror flick with an impressive ending.  I found out later it was a remake of an Korean horror, A Tale of Two Sisters, which I've noticed in my local video shop on a number of occasions but never got around to watching.  From past experience I know that the originals are usually the best, so I just wish I'd watched it first.  Still, The Univited was surprisingly good.

On other things, that hat in the picture from my guest blog is from when the wife and I went to Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, back in January.  A nice day out, but not nearly as good as Tokyo Disneysea.  Here's another picture from the same day, of me with a bush-shaped Hello Kitty.
