Talera vs Mock Songs

Posted 3rd June 2011 at 09:28 AM by Talera

One of my weird habits is changing lyrics. I’m no Weird Al, don’t get me wrong, but I can be talking with friends and then just suddenly come up with a song in my head appropriate to the topic. I’m not very good at it, but it has scored me amusement points in groups previously. It has also scored me comments like ‘mum, sing the real words please’.




I have plenty of ones done at home for various themes, my tribute to Friday the 13th was one I got asked to pass

Talera vs Supernatural

Posted 31st May 2011 at 05:40 PM by Talera

I watch Supernatural. Loved it from the first episode and watch it religiously. I can even tell you which episodes made me laugh my patootie off and which ones were a bit shocking. I can tell you the last episode of season 6 made me say “Oh my god” out loud (but I won’t say why – spoilers and all).

I converted someone else to it this year, not realising I had not converted all my friends. I got into a discussion with him and I realised part of the reason I liked it. It is not a horror...

Talera v Materialism

Posted 9th May 2011 at 12:57 PM by Talera

Yet I own a lot of ‘stuff’. This tends to be things that look like crap to everyone else but mean a lot to me, for example, I have an origami dragon made from dragon print proper origami paper which was made by a good friend when I was in college....

Talera vs the Void

Posted 21st April 2011 at 01:43 PM by Talera

So I have been absent, I fell into a ‘void’.

What did my void consist of?

Well I got sent out of town for work, and it flooded there. Then I went away a week and it flooded there. Then I went back out of town and it flooded there. I returned home for work and it flooded at home. Now I’m not making light of the whole flooding in QLD issue, I was lucky in that my residence only sustained property damage, the goods that were damaged were not essential (though they were...

Talera v Case 39

Posted 4th January 2011 at 03:47 PM by Talera

I have had many people tell me that Case 39 is an original horror movie that is unsettling. I know it surrounds a child in the foster care system due to abusive parents and given I previously worked in a field which exposed me to such issues I thought it would also hit home a bit further for me than most people.

Before you read on there are spoilers, but all things I found terribly predictable within the film and guessed within the first 15-20 minutes.

I rented the...
