MCU Retrospective - Iron Man

Posted on by Adam Lane

I've decided that while I wait for Infinity War Part 2 to come out (actual title on the way eventually), I'm going to do a full rewatch of all of the MCU films to date and give a little overview of my feelings once I'm done. First on the proverbial chopping block is Iron Man. Now, I love Iron Man. It maintained its top spot across the whole MCU for me for an exceptionally long time, in fact off the...

Passable Gamers #2 - Back in the Saddle

Posted on by Adam Lane

It took us a while, but we're back to streaming. We've changed our setup around a bit, and are now using Restream.io so that we're reaching Youtube, Mixer, and Twitch at the same time.

But with it having been almost two months since I posted anything, I thought there was no better time to dig this back up. I've been online in some way, shape, or form since I was nine. That's a few...

The Death of Free Speech in the UK

Posted on by Adam Lane

I've been trying so very hard not to get political on here. There's a real risk of alienating chunks of my audience for openly holding a different view to them. But this isn't a left, right, or centre issue. This is a societal one that everybody should be able to agree on: Freedom of speech is paramount in a free society. If you can't speak, you are not free. And by that metric, the UK is no longer a free...
