Introduction All I find funny, inspiring or moving enough to review and share. 'Black Hearted Love' includes an immeasurable amount of music, film, television and literature. If you have something you think I might want to write about, email me via my full profile. 'A Room of Her Own' is a more self indulgent affair, a miscellany of reflection *ahem*. All writing is my own and copyrighted so beware my dark side if you steal anything. Not all the images are my own but I try to credit where possible, please contact me if I need telling off about this. (see Disclaimer) These blogs will be the fancies rattling around in my mind...enjoy and then make your escape!
