This is not a blog
But only because I never update it. I write something on the front page occasionally though. But that isn't a blog either.. because I say so.
This has been running through my head all day:
I'm not really sure why, but there you go. Sasha told me to get the song, and in fact I did. And now it's stuck in my head. And that's enough to write for tonight. So there.

Not that writing reviews is easy. A proper review, it is thought, should give the reader a sense of whether or not he or she wishes to experience the media, give a sense of the quality of the media, and, in the case of media with a plot, do all this without spoiling said plot.
Not to beat a dead horse, but this is a very difficult proposition. In particular, writing an analysis of (say) a movie that does not spoil the movie, while failing to give away the movie for those who don't want to have it 'spoiled'. As a result, most reviewers in my experience essentially write about their own experience of the media, and leave it as an exercise for the reader to establish what biases the reviewer has, and determine how much in agreement they are likely to be with the reader. I have occasionally read a negative review, thought little of the reviewer's opinions, and purchased or viewed the media as a direct result of the (negative) review.
