Hello, good evening and welcome…
(Unless it’s the morning or the afternoon, of course; in either case, naturally, you’re very welcome too)
So what is George’s Journal? Well, intrepid internet surfer, you’re now a super lucky feller. Yes, that’s right, for you’ve stumbled upon the blog-cum-magazine written by yours truly, St. George – as my online moniker goes. What’s it all about? Well, not to get too Jerry Maguire on you, but its mission statement, generally speaking, is to supply you with my opinions and feelings on Anglo-American culture (much of it retro – from the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties), including film, TV, music, famous figures, events and developments. There may too be a smattering of ‘smart art’ talk from further back – such as Impressionism and Shakespeare, say – but probably not that much, don’t worry. And, on a more serious note (er, maybe), there may too be some political and more modern musing – in moderation. There’s two sides to every coin, but this place isn’t likely to get too serious, don’t worry. Healthy doses of nostalgia, whimsy, fun and frivolity’ll most likely be the order of the day at George’s Journal.
Now, after reading those three paragraphs, a couple of questions have probably struck you. First, has this sort of thing been done before? Unquestionably. Second, has it been done better? No doubt. But I can guarantee you it won’t have been done quite like this before – or maybe ever. Turn on, tune in and read out loud (if you like) then while sipping your favourite tipple. And by all means ‘reply’ – after all, as Bob Hoskins used to maintain, it’s good to talk.
Stay cool, peeps,
