Diary of an old cheeser

Hi there! Like other blogs, this is my chance to wax lyrical (some might say talk utter cr*p) about a) what's happening in my life b) all of my pet obsessions in particular music, tv, movies, books and other generally connected things, quite often of the retro, old and "cheesy" variety. Hence the title of my blog. Feel free to leave a comment if the mood takes you. There's nothing like a good chinwag about one's favourite topics and besides I love to meet new people! Cheers, Simon

    Funniest thing I've heard recently, as well as being rather sad, was Brian of BB8 proclaiming Shakespeare not a proper writer because he hadn't written for Disney only some arty farty film about "Romeo and Juliet"!!!
