Don't bother with Jura Origin (10) by the way. Tastes nice but wholly uninteresting for the money.

Tried some Japanese single malts?

Prophecy is the only Jura I've really loved.

That said I did enjoy Origin last time I had it. But I'd ordered it along side a honeyed beer. So I think the light floral and slightly sweet taste probably complimented it quite well.

I'm hungover to the point that if I try to sing, I feel sick.

Grown up reboot of Power Rangers. Pretty dark, but awesome.

I got really annoyed by it until I realised it was a satire on the gritty remake trend.

There's a legit film coming out next year though. Of which I have mixed feelings.

Fame at last! I've been coerced into doing an AMA on Reddit tomorrow. Which will be a bit odd. Because, you know, I'm just me. It's like when I was first asked for my autograph. All a bit strange, really!

My drag racing. For various reasons, it's going to be in /r/formula1 (which is the largest motorspot subreddit) rather than in /r/dragracing, which is full of tumbleweed.

Awright strangers, long time no see!

So I ran into Turbo a couple of times in the last few weeks, and it got me thinking I've done a pretty shoddy job of staying in touch with a lot of my online acquaintances over the last year or two. Thought I should probably make the effort to pop in from time to time and see how you were all doing.

So what have I missed? Anyonecare to fill me in on the dramas, mysteries, intrigues and ragequits of the last 18 months or so?
