Hello, I’m Matt Watts.
I spend a lot of time recommending stuff to my friends.
I say a lot of sentences that begin with:
“I heard this really cool thing today…”
“Have you seen _____ because it’s very good.”
“I think you would like…”
Video-games, films, books, CDs, books, TV shows, all sorts. Now I’m sharing those recommendations with everyone else.
Recommendations are constantly flung at people by algorithms on shopping websites. I think that recommendations made using Microsoft Paint are a lot better. Well, I hope they are. I’ve never received one, so I couldn’t say.
I also like writing about the stuff I like, but I don’t like criticising things, which is quite a necessary thing if you’re going to be a critic. Clue’s in the name. So if I just write recommendations I don’t have to slag anything off. Phew.
