Life’s a Blur

Blur’s eponymous album hits twenty years Twenty years ago in January 1997 I had seasonal depression, much like 2017. But don’t let that stop you reading because in the midst of all the gloom I found Blur. I’d not been a huge Blur fan throughout the Britpop era. They came to my attention after winning…

A few years ago I had a rather strange experience in my classroom. I taught year 4 (8 and 9 year olds) at the time and we were involved in a topic on World War II. As part of the topic we looked at wartime entertainment and so I decided to give them a 1940’s…

Indiana Jones and the Geek Force

When I wrote my blog on Spielberg and Me I soon realised that there was way too much about his films that I love to write in one bite sized chunk, otherwise it would have been too long. It dawned on me, half way through writing Spielberg and Me, that Indiana Jones was really special…
