I've collected some of the book, film and music reviews I did for a website called Footle over the past two or three years and put them all on my own site. Chiefly because I don't trust the guy with the Footle site to keep paying the server bills and I didn't want to lose it all entirely.

I haven't put up everything yet, because I'm having to hand convert everything to HTML, which takes time. Especially for a computer-illiterate fool like myself.

And yes, I know there are some glaring factual errors in some of the reviews, and still others aren't exactly informative. Such is the way. The editorial quality control on this stuff didn't even usually extend to a quick proof read, and I wrote some of these reviews in a less than perfect state of sobriety.

All the same, if you want to tell me I'm a fool, you can email me at (look, they gave me an email address....).
