New Channels

New channels have suddenly emerged thanks to the new model of TV which comes with more buttons to press! No longer stuck to one channel, you can visit these sites:

https://channelgourmet.wordpress.com/ – Food

https://channelgaming.wordpress.com/ – Video games

https://channelfilm.wordpress.com/ – Film

Channel Static’s Films of 2014

Channel Static’s Films of 2013

The beginning of a year tends to put objectives into ones mind. Get fit! Work hard! Save money! Save the world! And in 2013 I set myself with the challenge of visiting the cinema once a week  till the year came to a close. I completed it through sheer obsession, but I feel like I’ve developed some scars deep in my head, due to how much utter shit I’ve put myself through to accomplish the pointless goal. I just can’t stomach high-octane action films anymore. Make the explosions and dub step drops go away!

But it does mean I can provide a top ten hit list and a top ten shit list for you all to read.
