I realised the other day that my blog has largely become a “posting what I got in my HorrorBlock” blog. Every time I say I’m going to do something more with it, like review a couple of films or games, I don’t. I really should but to be honest I haven’t watched a film at all this year. Even when I was on holiday last week I didn’t watch a film (okay, I tried to watch The Babadook but freaked myself out about 15mins in), which is a bit shocking really when I think back to the time I used to go to the cinema pretty much every day. I’ve got a very long weekend coming up next week with absolutely nothing planned (I was supposed to be doing my final exam that week but I withdrew from the module and cover had already been arranged so may as well have the time off!) so I should do something other than sit in front of my laptop.
I also have a decision to make about continuing my HorrorBlock. On Thursday night last week, the Daily Mail gossip columnist Baz Bamigboye posted on Twitter that the musical Motown is opening at the Shaftesbury Theatre in February 2016, tickets now on sale. That means that Memphis (show I work on) is not booking past October 24th so I’m out of work from October. Hopefully I can get on Motown but that still leaves a gap which again hopefully I can fill with casual work and possibly panto. Money is not tight but I need to make sure I have enough saved up in case I’m not as lucky with finding work to fill the dark period. At the moment, I it’s a fun treat which definitely cheers me up but it is a luxury.
Right so, on to the fun bit!
