“Every day I get out of bed and drag myself to the next cup of coffee.”

It's All In The Caffeine

It's All In The Caffeine

“You know, every day I get out of bed and drag myself to the next cup of coffee.  I take a sip and the caffeine kicks in.  I can focus my eyes again.  My brain starts to order the day.  I’m up, I’m alive.  I’m ready to rock.  But the time is coming when I wake up and decide that I’m not getting out of bed.  Not for coffee, or food or sex.  If it comes to me, fine.  If it won’t, fine.  No more expectations.  The longer I live, the less I know.  I should know more.  I should know the coffee’s killing me.  You’re suspicious of your suspicions?  I’m jealous, Kay; I’m so jealous.  You still have the heart to have doubts.  Me? I’m going to lock up a 14-year-old kid for what could be the rest of his natural life.  I got to do this.  This is my job.  This is the deal.  This is the law.  This is my day.  I have no doubts or suspicions about it.  Heart has nothing to do with it any more.  It’s all in the caffeine.”  Detective Frank Pembleton, Homicide: Life On The Street


Welcome to “It’s All In The Caffeine” a “pressure valve” blog for this UK-based media consultant.  This will be the place for all that stuff I need to write down that does not get an airing elsewhere, a mix of views, reviews, and who-knows-what-else.   You can find me at the Insider Discussion section of the Blu-ray.com forums, at Geek Planet, where I provide book reviews and a weekly column on international genre cinema, and sometimes still on various anime and DVD forums.
