Massages hurt!

I went and got a massage on the weekend, neck, shoulders, and back. Boy did it hurt! I’m still in pain 3 days later. The masseuse said my entire back was one big knot, reckons it will take 3-4 massages before I really feel better for it.

Shut up and take my money!

How to setup a Lightbox Gallery on WordPress.com

I was Googling for an answer on how to use a Lightbox overlay for my photo galleries here on my blog. I nearly upgraded my WordPress.com plan to a business one so that I could install a plugin for a JS / Lightbox type thing…

Why do books make terrible movies?

I wonder why it’s so hard to make a movie from a book, or, why do so many book to film adaptations suck?

James Patterson is a fantastic writer, Alex Cross is one of my favourite detective / thriller series, but boy was that Alex Cross movie terrible.

Zoo, another James Patterson book, was a terrible TV show. It barely ressembled the book.

Another author I quite like is Stephen King. His book to movie adaptations are pretty ordinary too, sure there were a couple of good ones, IT, The Shining, The Stand, Misery, but for the most part they weren’t remotely as good as the book.

Why is it so hard to make a good movie from a book? Is it the acting choices, is it that books can be way more descriptive, what is the missing ingredient?

Get sick, then struggle…

I’ve been improving all the time since I had the surgery on my spine. I’ve been meditating every day, feeling good…then I had a gastro bug last Friday and I’ve been feeling so flat, tired, and completely defeated since.

Next week will be a better week.

Ditching Spotify

I deleted my Spotify premium account yesterday, not for anything Spotify had done, but because I got a Google Home and decided it was easier to use it with Google Play.

I only had a couple of playlists on Spotify, so it wasn’t a messy breakup…
