Iron Fist Clothing
I have some problems with the Iron Fist series. Why do Danny and Davos wear such dirty looking robes at the entrance to K'un Lun? There aren't any apprentice monks doing needlessly intricate martial arts training/laundry? Monastery does not mean dingy. I fe...

WW The Girl (some violence)
I lost my job because of a girl. I went to France because of a girl. I got a dog because of a girl, also a lizard. I should really learn to think for myself. Nah, other people make big decisions based on lots of thought and stuff. I just wait until a nice b...

I'm a big fan of Welsh. I don't speak much but I'm trying to fix that. One of the problems is lack of welsh tv that I can access. S4C, the public Welsh channel, is getting its funding cut. There's a petition to try and prevent it and to suggest that maybe a...

Books. Progress. Negligible.
So, The Wind-Up Terrier has been written for a while but I'm just not happy with it. I may have to do the unthinkable, for me, and just start from the beginning and redo it, taking things from the old version. Snow Sands; Through the wormhole, is stalled. I...
