Happy Boxing Day one and all! Hope you are having a lovely Christmas so far, whatever you may be up to (cue festive emojis 🎅🎅🎅 🎁🎁🎁 🎄🎄🎄). Today's blog sees the third annual giving out of my End of Year Prizes. 2016 has, it's safe to say, been an odd mistress of a year, but … Continue reading Alex’s End of Year Prizes 2016
Firstly, a hearty welcome back one and all! I've missed you all. I may or may not divulge in another forthcoming blog why there has been a silence of nigh on three months since my last post - real life mostly to place the blame on there. Secondly, Olly Murs is back (I know so, … Continue reading #CrazyStupidAlbum: Olly Murs (@ollyofficial) – “24 HRS”
Afternoon all! And a hearty welcome to December on my blog! I do realise it has been something of a very long while since I last wrote an entry (a month. That's usual, I know). Once again, feet of blame must rest firmly at the door of 'real life shit', and it's only now things … Continue reading #CrazyStupidPlaylist: ‘Last Christmas’

'The X Factor', it's fair to say, is a show with which I've had a notoriously on again-off again love affair. Much like Ross and Rachel, only without the girl from the copy place which yesterday, I took full responsibility for (and I make no apologies to anyone who doesn't get that reference). At the … Continue reading #CrazyStupidTV: The X Factor (ITV)
I did something pretty exciting over the Bank Holiday last weekend, as the week before, I got wind of the fact that Olly Murs was pre-recording his appearance as a guest - interview only - on The Paul O'Grady Show (below, credit to his Facebook for the picture) for ITV that aired last Wednesday afternoon. … Continue reading A beginner’s guide to appearing in a live TV audience, as written by me.
As has been mentioned before several times on this here blog, there are certain popstars or books or TV shows for which it is impossible for me to try and form any coherent stream of thought on other than that of a giddy, excitable fanboy, whilst showing all the love and loyalty of a particularly … Continue reading #CrazyStupidGig – Olly Murs (@ollyofficial) – Never Been Better Tour (O2 Arena, London, 4th/7th May 2015)
Apologies for being slightly late to the #AwesomeBoresome-ness this week. Blame this on the fact that I am currently fending off a sore throat and thus have the energy and attention span of a fruit fly. Being slightly ill isn't one of my #Boresomes though, but there are a couple of things that are. So … Continue reading #AwesomeBoresome (Week ending 19/04/2015)
Anyone who knows me - be it from reading this blog, seeing me on a day to day basis or perhaps following me on Twitter - will know that, for the last few years, I have been and still am a huge fan of fellow Essex boy, Olly Murs. Ever since his first ever X … Continue reading On his return to music, why Olly Murs is British pop’s best male.
