Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Living the Dream Part 13 (Time)

Everything these days is done against the clock. We’re all waiting for the time that something starts or ends. If not then we’ve got something on a timer. I’ve started running recently and, even though I’m doing it solely for fitness, I’ve still taken to timing myself. We’re all obsessed with time. That’s as should … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Living the Dream Part 13 (Time)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Breaking Bad Review

WARNING: Contains mild spoilers! If there’s one thing I hate it’s people banging on incessantly about TV series that they think I should definitely watch. I’ve had at least one person try to shove every ‘boxset’ series spun out over the last ten-fifteen years down my throat. Lost, Prison Break, 24, Game of Thrones, The … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World–Breaking Bad Review

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Tracks That Were Remade or Sampled to Great Effect

(Lots of YouTube video links contained—you have been warned!) My recent break was really good for one reason in particular: my love for music that had taken a leave of absence came back with a vengeance. Writing had consumed me so much that my brain didn’t seem to have the capacity to appreciate music as … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Tracks That Were Remade or Sampled to Great Effect

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Dear Jupiter…

This world is a beautiful place. It has diversity. It has colour. It has life. When the sun burst into existence 5 billion years ago and created Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune, our parent star definitely gave the third planet on the list the most exciting role. Earth has so much … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Dear Jupiter…

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Smile

“Cheer up; it might never happen.” “A smile costs nothing.” “Just think happy thoughts.” Are phrases like these not the single most annoying thing to hear when you’re feeling down about something? It seems to me that there are people out there waging a war on negative emotions and those who experience them. Don’t get … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Smile

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Assassin’s Creed Review (NO SPOILERS)

Today I venture down yet another new path on my blog as I actually review something. I suppose I’ve reviewed things in a backhanded fashion from the start with my Top Five’s, but I’ve always fancied writing some kind of critique on something to see if I’m any good at it. So the subject of … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Assassin’s Creed Review (NO SPOILERS)

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – What Are You Looking For?

In recent times I’ve been postulating over what it is people are generally looking for in a blog. When you get the urge to read what somebody has posted, are you looking for something in particular or is it more to do with the person who wrote it? In the case of the latter, I … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – What Are You Looking For?

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 10 (Novelist’s Itch)

In the past week or two my inner novelist has been threatening to burst from within me. I’m getting a real massive urge to work on my big project, The Escapades of William Hart, again. The first instalment, Revenge on the Spanish Main, still needs touching up on the terminology front, but I began working on … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Living the Dream Part 10 (Novelist’s Itch)
