What Does Having An Editor-in-Chief At Bleeding Cool Mean?

Greetings, Bleeding Coolers. Hannah Means-Shannon here. Firstly, let me explain that in the absence of any obvious thematic images to use for this post, I’ve elected to use some panels from Journey into Mystery. Just because. I’ve been writing for the site for a while, so it’s not like this is a first meeting. I’ve […]

Leaving On A Jet Plane. Won’t Be Back Till Sometime Next Week.

There we are. Brendon and me, on the British Airways flight to Los Angeles. Don’t I look patriotic? Doesn’t Brendon look like a Tim Burton character? We’ll be whizzing from there to San Diego for the show, and then back to LA for a couple of days if any West Coasters fancy meeting up after […]

Bleeding Cool’s Brendon Connelly Wins A Sony Radio Award

So, there’s a title up there in the third person. That’s awkward enough, and now I’m about to start tooting my own horn so things good get pretty queasy. But this is probably the kind of thing I should tell you. Everybody says so. I won a Sony Radio Award this week. The big industry […]

Monday DVD And Blu-Ray Review – Jane Eyre And From Prada To Nada

After Sophie had a week off for “baby stuff”, the Monday DVD and Blu-ray review returned to Glide FM in its normal form this morning. Which essentially meant me leaving out key bits of information but leaving in too many daft jokes. I also appear to suggest that the inclusion of Michael Fassbender instantly gives […]


A Bleeding Cool Video Christmas

Here are some videos of Christmas Past, featuring contributions of some sort by Richard or myself. I’m not sure what the Christmas number one is this year, but I know what it isn’t. The Twelve Days of Christmas kick off… today? Or was it yesterday? Either way, you might be advised to not celebrate them […]



Inception In Sixty Seconds And In Victorian Paper Cut Outs

Bleeding Ears: The Bleeding Cool Podcast

At a Ben And Jerry’s concession stand, in the corner of London’s Leicester Square sat Rich Johnston and SlashFilm’s Brendon Connelly. With a laptop. And an unreliable microphone. What would happen next? Could this be the first in a series of Bleeding Cool podcast things? Yes, yes it could. Talking about embargos, of all things. […]
