Update: Kindle

As a result of my ebook host being taken down I have now made the decision to post all of my ebooks for sale on Kindle. This is because everyone will still be able to access my ebooks even if they do not own a Kindle as you can download the Kindle software to you pc or laptop as well as downloading it to many other hardware such as smartphones.

I will ensure that I price the ebooks as low as I can to ensure that they will still be available to as many people as possible!

Please keep checking back to see my first release in the ver near future!

Exciting times ahead,

Review: Catfish (Film)

 

“In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel’s brother, Nev. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.” – Taken from (youtube.com/watch?v=BuE98oeL-e0)

The film Catfish is a ‘documentary’ based upon the life of a photographer Yaniv Schulman (known as Nev) who is based in New York. There is some controversy as to whether the film is real or staged, but which it is, is it a great film! I was completely captured for the full 86 minutes following every twist and turn in the story.

There is a great use of incorporating different media such as Google maps, Facebook Messages, texts, and phone calls – by including these the creators have made the film feel a lot more personal as well as making the audience feel as though they are apart of the film. The film also raises many of the discussion points about Facebook and our online ‘social lives’, such as do you really know who is behind the profile picture?

I would definitely recommend this film because you wouldn’t expect the film to turn out how it does after watching the trailer, also there are definitely some lessons to learn from the film too!

Coming in the future…

This blog is going to be quiet over the next week and may not be updated as regularly as I normally do over the next few months because I am working on a new ebook!

It will hopefully be first fiction novel! As this is the first time I’m doing this it will be a long drawn out task but I am going to take it head on. I don’t want to reveal too much about it but I hope that you’ll be aptient until I release it. I have two options for release either make it available for free and place an ad on it or make the first few chapters available for free and the whole book available on kindle… I’m not sure which route to take yet but I do want to make sure it’s available to everyone!

Also as you may know megaupload has been taken down, my downloads were unavailable until recently I have decided to become a member of Scribd! You can view my profile here:

You can also read my two ebooks there as well as download them so do go and check it out!

Thanks,

Poem: What The World Is Turning To Be

So many things are happening in the world around us
Addicts searching around to find a fix to get a buzz
Millionaires trying to find something to spend on
Politicians’ see the problems but scrub their minds to get gone
What about the single mother stranded on the street
Who thought about the homeless man on the street with nothing to eat

You chose to forget, just like me
Because you just didn’t want to see
What the world is turning to be
All too wrapped up in our own lives
To worry about those struggling to survive

 

What do you think of this one?
