Batman: The Killing Joke Review

Well hello there, repulsive little brutes! Fancy seeing you here. It’s been a while since my last review; there has been two films that I haven’t had time or effort to review: Alice Through the Looking Glass which I thought was a bit rubbish. It and the first film had too much plot and reason […]

Goatfell Climb 2016

A few of my friends and I decided because of the brilliant weather we’ve been having in Scotland, to venture up Goatfell in Arran. Last time I was there (in aid of Fullarton Building Funds in 2014) it took me 2:30 hours to climb Goatfell and about 1:40 hours to get back down to Brodick.
