    Cauley Woodrow

    Features in this month's FourFourTwo with a letter describing him as one to watch and a talent for the future with the writer saying he scored in a 5-1 rout against his team and "was everywhere". Clearly he saw something we didn't, though it's not that difficult to look good in a 5-1 win.
  4. Be an Angel - Back a New Horror Film

    My Niece's husband is a very decent indeed writer and producer of Horror films. They are looking to raise £14,000 on Kickstarter to fund their next project, so from as little as £10, which you only pay if the Film raises the funds, you can be involved, get your name in the credits, get a digital...

    Tron Legacy

    As a kid, I remember this weird video 'Tron' in the corner of the local rental store. I watched it, didn't really get it or like it as a ten year old, and that was that. Except that it wasn't it. For some unknown reason, I found myself repeatedly hiring it out, over and over. Then I found...
  17. What did you want to be when you grow up?

    And did you manage it? I think at the age of 10 or 11 I already fancied myself as a writer, having knocked a couple of books (ie, 10 bits of paper held together by staples) that stuck on a sci-fi theme that no one but my mum read, patted me on the head, and told me "they were very good". Of...
