Offbeat – 03 May 2013


Taking the spider’s point of view, if they are capable of thinking about anything other that eating, breeding and running away in terror from the havoc of feather dusters, and deadly cats and humans, life must be quite tough, and the struggle for survival must be extremely desperate.

I watched The Hobbit last night. The film is as much a pleasure as the book was. Radadgast the Brown offended purists, but the different take on him, depicted as a crazy cat lady with a beard, was welcome. I always saw him as a mysterious, slightly threatening old stick.
