My Name’s Bryan Parry. I like writing, films, languages, linguistics, comedy, curry, and The Smiths. I’m an ESOL teacher but I haven’t quite given up hope on being a writer — yet. I’ve also got a bunch of pages online — check ’em out!
Currently active sites
These are sites that I currently work on or update fairly frequently.
The Doggerelizer (blog): “Where a writer manque splurges words all over your screen”. A collection of my writings on various topics. Articles, essays, reviews, poetry, scripts, comedy sketches, and so on. Essentially, the blog version of my YouTube channel (style-wise, at least). So, a random collection of articles whose only really connective theme is ‘stuff wot I care about wot I writ’.
My Twitter Page: soundbites; stuff too insubstantial and fluff-like to appear on my highly intellectually challenging (*coff*) YouTube channel and blog The Doggerelizer. So, basically, random football insults and out-of-context news snippets. And, latterly, a lot of Brexit banter.
Wrixlings (blog): “The best words are short, the short words are Saxon… usually”. My blog where I discuss the burning issue of the day: how to construct a plainer English derived more from the Germanic wordstock inherent in the language. Yes.
Bryan’s Magic Lantern Filmhouse (blog): I used to review films in actual dead tree-based real publication format. Here I do so again but online and with no editorial oversight whatsoever! Mostly short reviews of films and stuff on Netflix (as I’m too poor and busy to get to an actual cinema nowadays).
Fatty Bryan and the Procrastinauts (blog): dieting, healthy living, recipes, life goals, SMART planning, and fulfilling your potential. I’ve got a lot of life goals and I love food — sometimes a bit too much. Join me as I chat about all this stuff.
Less active sites
These are sites which I haven’t forsaken, but which I simply am not currently able to work on.
My YouTube Channel: video blogs on various topics: religion, philosophy, poetry, language, politics, sport, comedy. Varied stuff.
The Tungmaker (blog): “A sad little man makes up languages and writes about it”. Too much vodka and a stray chromosome have left me with the debilitating condition known as conlangaria, whereby the suffer is compelled, even to the point of harming himself, to invent languages for imagarinary worlds with imaginary cultures. There is no known cure. Please donate your funds and together we can crush conlangaria!
The Church of Epicurus (blog): “Don’t fear God; don’t fear death; good things are easy to get; bad things are easy to endure”. My website discussing the philosophy of Epicurus and related ancient Greek philosophers, and its relevance and application to the modern day.
