No, this isn’t Facebook – but…

I know I’ve been sorely amiss with respect to new posts. This will be remedied soon – I’ve got four very special posts in the pipeline that should be of interest to anyone reading this who is into film, crackpot cults, milkshakes drunk from across the room, falling frogs and huge penises. (If that last sentence doesn’t get me tons of hits, I don’t know what will. People love falling frogs on the internet.)

However, this is more than just a “Coming soon” – it’s also me telling all of you to read the final interview with Iain Banks (published in The Guardian), the prolific and talented Scottish writer who died on 9 June (in a morbid coincidence also my birthday). Go, now, and read!

Rest in peace, Iain Banks
