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 – Five Stupid/Pointless Things I’d Do if Money Was No Object and I Had Too Much Time on My Hands

As it’s April 1st I feel some foolishness is in order. I’ve been a bit too serious of late and would like to drag things back to a more shallow and humorous note. Let’s face it; we’ve all thought about what we’d do if we came into an obscene amount of money. Here in Britain, I … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Stupid/Pointless Things I’d Do if Money Was No Object and I Had Too Much Time on My Hands

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Biggest Videogame Let-downs

Waaaaaay back in the early days of my blog I ran down what five of my favourite videogames were. It was tough to choose five from the many games that I really enjoy and I have a huge list of potential titles that could have made that list aside from the five I eventually settled … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Biggest Videogame Let-downs

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Tracks That Make Me Happy

I gave up a long time ago on ever attempting to make a list of my favourite tracks. It’s physically impossible. I swear that discovering what lies beyond the event horizon of a black hole is more possible than me compiling a top twenty of favourite tracks. Certain music suits certain moods, so some days … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Tracks That Make Me Happy

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Memorable Things That Happened In 2016

I love New Year. I love it in an ironic way. I love the cringeworthy end of year reviews people do as posts on Facebook and the like. I purposely avoided reading most such things here on WordPress as I often don’t buy into the whole ‘new year, new me’ time for self-reflection thing. I think … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Memorable Things That Happened In 2016

In general, I find I’m more impressed by the bad guy in any work of fiction. Perhaps that says … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – My 5 Favourite Fictional Heroes

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – My 5 Favourite Fictional Villains

You’ve gotta love a villain! All the best movies, books, television series or whatever else was always made better if the bad guy was…erm, good. The protagonist is always the one you root for, but many a time it’s been the antagonist that’s had me loving whatever it is I’m watching or reading. It might … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – My 5 Favourite Fictional Villains

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Music Tracks That Are Important to Me

  Anybody who knows me will be well aware of the fact that I am and always have been a touch obsessed with music. It’s every bit as important to the person I am as my writing. I think the way each and every one of us listens to music is different. Some just like … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Five Music Tracks That Are Important to Me

Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Top 5 Movies of All-Time

This is one I wanted to avoid if I’m honest. It’s a little obvious for me and I have a habit of trying to give obvious a wide berth. Simultaneously, this is perhaps the easiest because it’s about the only definitive Top Five I have. I couldn’t pick my five favourite songs of all-time. I … Continue reading Paul.E.Bailey’s World – Top 5 Movies of All-Time
