I’ve no idea if anybody is still subscribed to this blog, but if yes then I have started writing once again! (or at least I hope so - 2 long posts in about a month is something, right?)
My new blog is at https://monikasulik.wordpress.com/
I’m going to post much more rarely than I used to and the subject [...]

Is this blog dead? hmmm….

I’m not quite ready to declare it dead yet, but this is the longest I’ve gone without writing anything on it *sigh*
Basically, I have a life now ;) I mean a real one, a life that makes me happy - my mum recently said that she doesn’t think she’s seen me constantly happy like this [...]

Google Ads

As you may have noticed, I’ve put up some Google Ads in the side bar. It’s a sort of experiment - I’ve never played around with internet ads before and I want to find out about them.
But anyway, due to this, I am (quite rightly) obligated by Google to tell all my readers about how [...]

Why I love Take That: Part Three!

This post deals with a much more youthful Take That *grin* They had a more manufactured and cocky feel in those days, but even then they were most definitely insane ;)

Have you ever wondered what a boyband would look and sound like if they suddenly switched to playing hard rock in the [...]

Why I love Take That: Part Two *grin*

After my previous declaration of undying love, I realized that was only my first post about Take That on this blog :-/ Clearly, this must be remedied *grin* So I thought I’d post lots of clips with their craziest concert ideas, which is what I love about them the most. And then I realized the [...]

An IMDb rant AKA how to get back to the old design

I absolutely hate IMDb’s redesign. It’s horrible. I hated when they decided to show English titles rather than the original ones as well, but the redesign is ten times more difficult to stomach. In fact, it’s so bad I seriously started wondering if I could move at least some of my film site needs somewhere [...]

Why I love Take That

Are there any other boybands (or pop groups of any sort for that matter) that would start a concert with a string quartet playing Richard Strauss? ;)
But what I really wanted to post was the song that comes right after the classical music bit - I just had a total giggling fit over it:

For the [...]

My film rating system revised

I’ve been experimenting with my film rating system for a short while now and I’ve received some feedback (both on and off the blog) about it. So far the feedback is positive. It seems that most people are finding it relatively easy to “get” and apply the marks themselves, which is great :)
However, I’m finding [...]

A film rating system

I want to introduce a film rating system on my blog at some point in the future and was hoping for input :) I struggle with conventional film rating systems - they seem a bit meaningless. Rating a film out of 10 or 5 just doesn’t tell you all that much about what is meant [...]
