We are back,The Grinning Skull is back online!!

9 Aug

backbaby

Well folks, after a lot of messing around, creating a archive/new site, much hair pulling out and other guff. We are back.

I could sit here and type to you, what the hell has gone on, but suffice to say I’m not going to bore you with an entire catalogue of problems, I’m just happy that this is sorted.

The only thing is, it’s now left me with an other site, with an almost identical set up as here. Never the less, for now, I’m going to update both and after some jiggery pokery, I’ll post on both, amend links and try to integrate them with each other. That way, if anything goes tits up again, everything will be up to date.

Of course, all this has caused some damage to my online space, with the various algorithms and doo-dah’s on the internet, I hope to overcome this blip eventually (plus, having two sites listed with links to each other, and material etc can’t be a bad thing? Right?) So for now, while I sort out stuff on here, and www.grinningskullstudios.design.blog (which for those of you who don’t know, is where the archived site exists also)

All posts from there, will be exported/reblogged on here, just for my completist nature. You’ll be able to read them as soon as I get sorted out, but if you want to read it now, jump over to www.grinningskullstudios.design.blog and read them now.

I’m just glad that the original is back.

Catch you later, and let me know if any of you subscribers are getting notified, or any other things have stirred (blog network links, rss and other crap) into resurrection!

The Turn in the fork of a new road.

4 Jun

Well, here’s to a new start, once again to brave the elements of the wild web and renew. There will be more. Keep tuned to this space.

All this site has been exported from the domain http://www.thegrinningskull.com and I’m in the process of porting as much of the content as possible.

Yes, it was time to scale back, but very necessary indeed. I’ll elaborate more later, but safe to say, a purge was needed.

The Telly Rant: Too Much or Not enough?

4 Sep

Watching & catching up with your fave shows these days is a lot easier in this day and age, what with the event of the smart TV and internet, but I’m also finding it a pain too.
I don’t know if you agree with me or not, but with just the sheer amount of good telly available now, it’s also a real pain finding the time to watch what I want too!

I’ve just got around to catching up with the latest series of HBO’s Game of Thrones – Season 7 [DVD] [2017], which was pretty damn good I think you’d agree (Littlefinger getting slashed in the throat, classic!!) and I got around to seeing The Defenders on Netflix (Loved that too!)
My trouble with it all is that it seems like a trek just trying to get up to date on everything. I’m behind with The Flash, I’m behind with DC Legends of Tomorrow S2 [DVD] [2017], Bob’s Burgers: The Complete 4th Season, Agents of Shield, Supergirl and a whole host of other TV shows and as time goes on, it’s going to get very overwhelming indeed.

At least I’ll be ready for the new series of Star Wars Rebels Season 3 [Blu-ray] [Region Free] and The Walking Dead Season 7 [DVD] [2017], but I wouldn’t like to think what it’d be like if I had to start from scratch from the beginning!

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Genre TV shows, it’s much better than it used to be back in the day, I just think that maybe it’s too much. (Will we all have square eyes?)

The way we are consuming media like this these days is changing to be sure, and I’m not going to diss it all, as the standard is right up there, more so than movies in some respects, but at the rate we are going, how long before it all goes tits up? you know, when will there be a fly in the ointment? (so to speak)

Somehow, there are so many great programs on the box, I’m going to have to ditch some of it just so I have time to do other stuff, that is more pressing matters (Hey, I’ve got an empire to build here!) Fear the Walking Dead – Season 2 [DVD] will have to wait!

I was just wondering how others feel about this, do any of you share these views, or do you disagree?

The Grinning Skull turns 3!!

3rdbirthday

I thought it would be a good idea to let everyone know that this blog celebrated it’s third birthday yesterday!

I’d like to say thanks to everyone who has read my articles and visited my humble site over the years, also put up with my moaning, divergences and general nonsense!

We’ve clocked up over 321,000 views up to now, so here’s to another year and see if we can get to the half a million mark!
