Ewans 10 Favourite Films

Image result for films

Where would we be without film? Probably dead. Died of boredom. But seriously, where would we be? Film is one of the most important medias of our time. I love watching films, I don’t review them though. Not anymore anyway. But I thought it necessary to count down my ten favourite films, of all time. These are my opinions. If you think a film on here is shit, then rightly so, just wait until we get to the last few films.

Baited Podcast Review

Image result for baited

A clown, a DJ and a guy nobody really cares about all walk into a bar. There isn’t a punchline to this joke because that will never happen. They’ll most likely just yell at each other for an hour or so on Skype and call it a podcast. Well, I’d agree with calling it a podcast actually. So in a one off special, I’m going to review a podcast, because I can. I don’t care if you don’t want me to, I’m ill and need something to do.

Ewan obliterates The Big Bang Theory

Image result for the big bang theory

The Big Bang Theory is a “comedy” show that basically gets its humour from saying nerdy things in a sentence and then using canned laughter to make it a generic “funny” moment. I do like a few of the older episodes, but now shuffling its way onto Season 10, I got very annoyed. So much so that I told my friend, who just so happens to think that this is the best show ever.

I issued her a challenge. For every episode of The Big Bang Theory, I could name an entire Comedy TV Show that you could watch instead. All nine seasons, every episode, a different TV Show for each. Did I manage it? Hell yes I did. The stipulations were that I wasn’t allowed to use the internet to help me, so this was all from either memory or DVDs I actually own.

Ewan has another writing gig

I think the title basically sums it all up. I’ve been writing for Updownright for over a year now, I thought it was time to expand my horizons. I moved on to write for Postard, wrote for them for a month and really haven’t enjoyed it, both writing and personal reasons, so I’ll be resigning from that position very soon.

So to get a new job I had to apply for some more. I applied for four. One of which replied almost instantly, and that is where I’m going. I’ll still be keeping this blog open though, as the articles I’m writing for the new company will be iOS Game Reviews. I know, bit of a niche market, but it’s paid work, $5 an article. So if I write 7 articles a week, one a day, then I’ll make $35 a week. Which translates to £29. £29 x 4 = £110. £110 x 12 = £1300ish. So that’s £1300 a year if I write 52 articles a year. That’s pretty damn good.

At the time of writing this I haven’t heard from the other three, I may also manage to get a writing stint at WhatCulture, I’ll have to see what I can manage.

Obviously time is short at the moment, sixth form is literally draining every ounce of energy I have and I more often than not just slump in front of my TV and watch old comedy shows instead of anything productive.

That’s basically it for this post.

Go away.

New and Improved

It’s now the 28th. So that means I have to come back and continue writing for a bit longer. Just a quick update to talk about a couple changes I’ll be making.

For starters, Achievement Unlocked is now on hiatus. Wednesday articles will be less frequent, mainly so I can have a bit more time off. Also because I haven’t done much achievement hunting recently. I’m just under 100,000G and I was going to play Fight Night Round 3 to get to that goal but it was not to be and I haven’t done much achievement hunting for quite a few months now.

Some more series making a full time departure, the satire articles, An Hour With and quite possibly the 1000 TV Shows. I have a lot less time to write now so only focusing on the Game Reviews, Ewan Rants and Ewans Mind is a lot easier on me. I will however be writing a bit more varied content, mainly Wrestling but I may also do things relating to TV Shows and so on.

Obviously I haven’t got as much time as I had before to do my writing as I’ve started sixth form and some other personal things that are restrictive of time need to come first. I’m sure you understand, if not, tough shit, I’m doing it anyway.

And another thing, I need to devote more time to finishing my book as the publishing offer deadline runs out at the end of November, so I better get started on finishing.

Thanks for understanding, also thanks for reading I suppose.

Relax, Revitaliste, Re-thingy thingy title

Just a quick heads up that I’m gonna be taking a two week break, mainly just to recharge my batteries, get used to sixth form and so on. Just need some time off. I’ll be taking about two weeks off. The first week (12th – 19th) I wont be doing any writing. The second week (20th – 27th) I will be writing, posts will resume as normal on the 28th.

Cheers for understanding, I’m off to play Trivial Pursuit on my Xbox

Back to School

Yep. I’m back at school. Well, not school, sixth form. I’m actually writing this while at sixth form. Do you want to know why? Because the school gave me free periods on a Friday. And a Monday. And a Wednesday, and a Thursday too. Not Tuesday, I’ve got a non stop train of five lessons so that may just kill me. Anyway, it’s another rambling article because I’ve just drank my bottle of Coke and I’m ready to go…to second lesson, back in a bit.
