I am Andrew Collins. This is my blog. I have been writing it since February 13, 2006. It used to be on Blogger, but Blogger, or Google, told me I had to do something boring to it which involved cooking up a new URL and “migrating” it to a new server. In doing this, grudgingly, I lost all the comments, and it’s the comments that I like the most. So, failing to get any help from Blogger, I took my ball home and moved to WordPress, where migration was painless and none of my comments were lost. It has been like moving house. I have never looked back.

If you’re new to the blog, it’s not a daily diary, or anything too personal or navel-excavating; it’s actually a place for me to write stuff about films and telly and books and music and politics that saves me waiting around for a newspaper or magazine to commission me to do it. Result.

If you want to find out more about me, my website is over here.

  1. Hey Hi

    I’m a long time consumer of most things Collinsy – Since I started reading the NME in anger in the late 80’s.

    Anyway just wanted to say that I like reading your bloggy thing, but am always a bit frustrated by the layout. Because the entries are all on one page, it’s a bit of a pain in the bum having to scroll up and then scroll down a bit if I’m having to catch up on a few days. Just wondered if could be structured so that there was one entry per page, rather like your angry friend Richard.

    I’ve no idea if this is an easy thing to do or not, and to be honest, even as I’m writing this I wondering why I am even bothering to waste both our time in bringing this up. It’s a very minor point to make and I should probably be spending my time doing something constructive.

    Anyway, sorry to bother you.
