Marmite Peanut Butter? MARMITE PEANUT BUTTER!

Marmite has announced that it is due to release peanut butter soon.

Wow.

Marmite Peanut Butter

As someone who is quite partial to Marmite and loves peanut butter, this is quite an interesting team up.

I for sure will give it a go if or when I find a jar.

There might be another Marmite-themed post upcoming in the next few days. I'll leave it as a teaser for now.

I've Watched The First Ep Of The Rookie

I watched the new TV series from American - The Rookie - last night.

It's about a middle-aged man who trains to become a police officer in Los Angeles. The show is all about how he has to adjust to his new job and the hurdles he has to overcome.

I first came across the show through advertisements on Twitter when it debuted in the US and found out that Sky had bought the rights to it.

The first episode was mainly about introducing us to the title character, his two fellow new recruits and the people who'll be in charge of them.

It started off well. I've added it to my series link, so plan to continue watching it.

The series is on Sky Witness on Thursday nights.

Getting Ready For Bill and Ted III

After writing yesterday's post about Bill and Ted 3, I went onto Amazon and made a purchase.

That should actually be 'I made TWO purchases'.

Bill and Ted DVDs

Yep, I bought Bill and Teds Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey on DVD.

I'm getting ready for next year's movie. My main plan is to get my youngest nephew interested in the film before its release.

Bill And Ted Are Coming Back

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves took to social media yesterday and broke the news that they are set to reprise their Bill and Ted roles that made them famous in the 1980s and early 1990s.

Bill and Ted 3 is set to come out in 2020.

I was a fan of the two movies - and the cartoon series that was birthed after the first movie - back when I was a child.

I'll be in my forties when the new film is out, so not sure what I am going to think about it.

What I will say is this - it's long overdue.

And it may have gone beyond the point where I think it'll be cool.

However, I am going to keep an open mind and do one thing.

Be excellent.

Thinking About Buying The New iPad Air

I am thinking about buying the new iPad Air when it comes out.

The one that I've had since late 2013 has served me well and I was planning to buy a new one later this year. However, something has happened that has forced me to change this plan.

My sister's family's iPad has died on them. Therefore, I think it might be a good idea to bring my plans forward and then give them my old one to save them from having to buy a new one.

I get to do what I had planned albeit sooner than I would have liked, but they get a tablet that has - like I said - served me well over the years.

If or when this plan is executed, I am sure I'll write about it here.

Attention Seeker Wanted A Haircut

I read an eye-rolling news story yesterday.

Without giving her any attention more than a few words here, a 'celebrity' from a famous autumn TV show took to Instagram and Twitter in floods of tears because a barber refused to cut her hair as she isn't a man.

What an attention seeker.

There are enough problems going on in the world. Not being able to have a haircut isn't one of them. Go to a salon that will allow you. It's quite simple.

Idiot.

One More Week

A film I've been looking forward to seeing from the moment it was being teased is a week away from being released on DVD/Blu-ray.

I am referring to Creed II.

The film is the follow up to the movie starring Michael B Jordan and Sylvester Stallone and is a follow on from the Rocky series of movies with Stallone returning as Rocky Balboa. Jordan plays the role of Adonis Creed - son of Rocky's biggest rival, Apollo - who is trained by the former heavyweight champion.

This time, Creed has to fight the son of Ivan Drago. Drago, if you recall, is the character who killed Apollo Creed in Rocky IV, so it's a really intriguing tale.

Dolph Lundgren reprises his role as Drago in this film.

Cannot wait!
