Welcome to Calliope's Coffee House the proprietor of this establishment is Jacquie Reaville better known as The Book Imp.

When I started this place it was primarily for book reviews and thoughts on all things literary. Well the book reviews are still here, but somehow it's grown into a place for me and others to practice short fictional writing and of course a place where I can give my thoughts and opinions on virtually any subject that might take my fancy.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Just to add that I welcome comments, the more the merrier. They don't even have to be related to books or writing just go wild (not too wild though).

Permissions are set so that even anonymous users can answer - but comment moderation is in effect which means I get to say yes or no to letting them appear here.

The Impy for best... goes to!

This is just a bit of fun, you get the golden globes, emmy's, oscars even razzies so I thought an Impy for video clips that make me smile, laugh, cry or hide behind the sofa.

First for animation, I absolutely adore this video its so well made but it does make me sniffle a little. This is the original I believe not one that someone has taken and added a sound track to.


Public Information Films. I'm not sure when this appeared on our TV screens I only know that I remember it as a child and it did it's job, scared me silly. I think it may be Donald Pleasance doing the voice over but don't quote me on that.

Dark and Lonely Water

Music. I found these set of clips and just couldn't choose so I've used a complilation. I love these guys they are so talented and so very funny. It's a long vid though about 8 minutes.

Igudesman and Joo and A little Nightmare Music.

Comedy. I have two selections first it is my all time favourite Eddie Izzard. I actually saw this particular show, when I came out of the theatre I resembled a panda, tears of laughter had made my mascara run.

Eddie Izzard - Machines That Lie

And comedy again Bill Bailey, not really sure how to explain him, so I'll let this clip do it.

Bill Bailey - Chaucer Pubbe Gagge

I think that will do for tonight, hope you get around to watching these and enjoy at least some of them.
