Being David Norman

Being David Norman


When I started this sporadic blog back in January 2005, comic book bloggers preferred unusual names for their blogs instead of using their actual names (in contrast to today when the advice is to own your own domain name so that you can control your brand). I’m not sure why this was, but it made sense when everyone else was…

I Need A Clone To Do My Blogging For Me


I was going to blog something. And then the post man delivered our copy of Lego Star Wars 3 The Clone Wars. There should be a modern saying about good intentions and video games for children. Ah well. Time to get back to throwing lightsabres and blowing stuff up. (PS: I love the muzak when characters are in the lift…

Pause for reflection

Pausing For Reflection


I’m taking a moment in my daily blogging schedule to step back from my goal (of discussing all the various entertainments I’ve consumed and getting up to date on them) and think about my blogging, so feel free to ignore this self-indulgence on my part. I’m getting close to aim of being able to talk about comic books and films…

Halfway Point


I know this is a bit self-indulgent, but six months of almost daily blogging is something worth marking. With the exception of those few days in April, I’ve posted every day this year, a better history than the previous five years (yes, I’ve been blogging, rather badly, for five years). In fact, there are more entries for this year already…

Blogging Defeat


I must concede defeat: today, I cannot keep my promise of writing something for the blog every day. I’d hoped I would have a pre-prepared post kept aside for emergencies such as these but alas, no. However, it should be pointed out that I wasn’t just sunning myself in the glorious sunshine that has been basking over London today, causing…

Blogging called off on account of headache


Is this cheating on my promise to myself of trying to blog every day? I really want to post something, but I’ve got a headache developing and I don’t have anything pre-written as a back-up. So I’m writing a few paragraphs to explain why I’m not posting. That definitely sounds like cheating. I hope you don’t get headaches but, if…

And like Him, I have risen again


I was doing so well. There I was, posting something every day since the beginning of the year – a personal record for me; the entirety of January, February and March have a daily post of nonsense. And then last week happened. I had originally thought I could play it as an April Fool’s Day joke, having a completely blank…
