In this post and video I’m going to discuss my first experiences with audio description in London, for museum galleries, theatre shows, cinema screenings and walking tours.
In advance of my birthday this month, my mother has paid for a couple of recently released music boxsets I wanted to get, and this is the first one I’ve received – the 30th anniversary of Def Leppard’s Hysteria album. So I thought I would do my first unboxing video before I actually listen to it and review the music.
For this post and video, I’m doing the small Youtuber tag, which I decided to do after seeing Annie Elainey’s video. I don’t know if she originally created the tag but that’s where I found it. Her Youtube channel is well worth checking out as well, she’s a brilliant disability campaigner and blogger.
Anyway, on with my answers to the tag, I hope you enjoy!
For the final part of my nostalgic look back at my favourite computer games (following on from Part 1 and Part 2), I’m now going to look at games I enjoyed on the first 2 PlayStation consoles. I spent many happy hours playing on these, meaning there’s quite a few games to mention. So in this post I’m going to mention a few of my favourite platform and adventure games.
This is the first guest post I’ve ever had on this blog, which is a nice way of marking the fact that I recently passed 100 posts. And it doesn’t have to be the last either – if any of my blogging friends would like to collaborate on something, especially those that I already follow and enjoy, then I’m open to ideas.
This post is from the Ability Superstore Blog, where they regularly post useful advice and links for disabled people on a variety of topics – in this case talking about accessibility at music festivals. I love music and going out and about, so this is a perfect topic for me.
This is being posted at the same time as a guest post by me on their site. It’s all about how I’ve grown in confidence over the years, so please go and check it out!
Thank you so much to Natalie for inviting me to do that, and for giving me permission to reproduce her post below in return. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
For my 101st post, I thought I’d do something a bit like the TV show Room 101 (where celebrities nominate their pet hates to be locked away forever). It’s named after the torture chamber in George Orwell’s novel 1984, which is said to contain “the worst thing in the world”. We also had a Room 101 at my college which was rather memorable, because it was the examinations office! So that felt both appropriate and ominous!
So I wanted to do a post along those lines, using it as an excuse to list some things that frustrate or irritate me because I have a visual impairment. I’ve also made a Youtube video to accompany it. It’s not at all intended to be offensive or to upset anyone, and I’m not a negative or moaning person. I’m actually very positive, as I’ve hopefully conveyed throughout this blog. But it’s nice to get some things off your chest now and again, and to try and spread a bit of awareness in the process.
Turns out this is my 100th post! I only recently passed my 100th Youtube upload and 200th Twitter follower as it happens, so a few little milestones seem to have come along at once. Little things, I know, but if you’ve been following and enjoying any of my content thus far, then thank you! 🙂
Anyway, continuing on from my previous post, here are some more of my favourite computer games that I enjoyed in my youth, many years ago. I will be getting on to PlayStation games in the next part, but before then, I want to talk about a few games I enjoyed on Microsoft Windows, plus a console my best friend had (and still has now), and one or two other things too.
