Born and raised in the cathedral city of Winchester, Roland earned his Eurotrash merit badge in Paris before moving to America to seek his fortune. If you've seen it, please give him a shout, because he's still looking. A digital Don Draper with a Hemingway complex, Roland pays the bills with his social media savvy, but under various nom de plumes is a top-ranked Amazon author after hours, and is impatiently awaiting the day he can give up the rat race forever and write schlock in a cabin in the mountains.

Daniel Craig’s press tour for Spectre has caused almost as many headlines as the upcoming movie itself – but let’s set the record straight. He’s NOT giving up the tuxedo any time soon.

What’s the best ‘Back to the Future Day’ marketing piece?

Militant Ginger 0
It’s finally here – the day I’ve been dreaming about ever since I was a kid. It’s the day Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled to ‘the future’ in their time-travelling DeLorean. Only it’s not the future any more. It’s now. And in what must be one of the most fun marketing experiences of my […]

Yesterday, the new trailer for Star Wars Episode VII hit, and if you didn’t wet your pants a little I’m ashamed of you. It looks incredibly thrilling, and I got goosebumps watching it.

Militant Ginger 0
So there’s been a lot of disagreement with my post about retaining an all-male A-Team, and it got me thinking… If you were to have an all-female reboot (which, for the record, isn’t what NBC are planning) who would you have making up the team?

A Dumb Little Story about StarCitizen’s Chris Roberts

Militant Ginger 0
So at the moment, there is scandal afoot with Cloud Imperium Games, the developers behind hotly-anticipated space adventure StarCitzen. The Escapist alleged serious impropriety at CIG, and even suggested that the crowd-funded game was going to ‘crash and burn.’ In retaliation, CIG actually threatened to sue them for libel; and presented pretty compelling evidence blowing […]
