Sorry, but I just couldn't pass this one up: apparently, Melbourne, that's in Australian, is right in the middle of their yearly so-called sex-po, a trade fair for the erotic trades, this year featuring: get ready, this is really good- ta da- pole-dancing robots. yes, you heard me right- pole dancing robots. And the gigabit … Continue reading And Miss Phryne Fisher Lived Here: Nuts, Bolts, Sex, And Moolah
(Spoiler alert: if you go to this movie, your evening will be spoilt) Last Tuesday night we went to the movies: Dr Strange, starring two, in my opinion, absolutely brilliant actors, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Tilda Swinton.

Which is a cute trick, since, as I just said, I DIDN'T WRITE IT. Yo ho ho. I had been pirated. At WordPress.
