We Put Together a Christmas Gift Guide So You Don’t have To

in Fandom Must-See/Merch/Collectibles

Feeling lazy already? Isn’t Christmas season just EXHAUSTING? Yes. Say it with me. It’s totally ok to admit it. It’s also totally ok to admit that you’ve been defeated by the mere fact that Christmas shopping is not as fun as it sounds like. Streets are always packed (Hello there, social anxiety). The sizes you want for clothes are never available online during that period.

So we say, fuck that. Let’s go full-on geek. We put together a Christmas Gift Guide together for your pleasure only.

Let’s crack on.

The 1975 won our hearts this year with their hauntingly beautiful album. Okay, so did Kings of Leon but their album cover wasn’t as pretty so we went with this one. Buy this lovely vinyl to that vintage friends of yours. The 17 track album from The 1975, includes the singles Love Me & The Sound and our very very favorite Paris.

 

The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 ¼ Years Old – Book
christmas gift guide
Synopsis

‘Another year and I still don’t like old people. Me? I am 83 years old.’

Hendrik Groen may be old, but he is far from dead and isn’t planning to be buried any time soon. Granted, his daily strolls are getting shorter because his legs are no longer willing and he had to visit his doctor more than he’d like. Technically speaking he is … elderly. But surely there is more to life at his age than weak tea and potted geraniums?

Hendrik sets out to write an exposé: a year in the life of his care home in Amsterdam, revealing all its ups and downs – not least his new endeavour the anarchic Old-But-Not Dead Club. And when Eefje moves in – the woman Hendrik has always longed for – he polishes his shoes (and his teeth), grooms what’s left of his hair and attempts to make something of the life he has left, with hilarious, tender and devastating consequences.

The indomitable Hendrik Groen – Holland’s unlikeliest hero – has become a cultural phenomenon in his native Netherlands and now he and his famously anonymous creator are conquering the globe. A major Dutch bestseller, The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen will not only delight older readers with its wit and relevance, but will charm and inspire those who have years to go before their own expiry date.

The Secret Diary of Hendrik Groen, 83 ¼ Years Old is published in the UK by Michael Joseph at £12.99 hardback/eBook http://hyperurl.co/hendrikgroen

Merch & Collectibles: Ian McKellen Roles

in Merch/Collectibles

It’s May 25th, meaning it’s Sir Ian McKellen‘s birthday today. Sir Ian McKellen has been a tremendous influence for so many young actors and actresses out there, leaving his everlasting footprint in cinematic roles. He has also been one of the most impactful presences in british theatres and stages.

 

Ian McKellen

 

That’s why I thought that the best way to honor his birthday would be to dedicate the ‘Merch & Collectibles’ post of the week to him. From Gandalf to Magneto and his Shakespearean reprisals, he truly is one of the best out there. Not to mention I have a deep love and admiration for being such a passionate gay rights activist.

We’d like to wish Sir Ian McKellen a very happy birthday and thank him for being so inspiring to every person who’s willing to show their true self and live their dreams.

Here’s a (slightly shitty) picture I took of Ian after the ‘Letters Live’ event this year in London. Unfortunately, he left too quickly after the show and I didn’t have time to ask him for an autograph. Next time, though.
