What is Snacked Up?

The highly opinionated, and sometimes highly personal, ramblings of a freelance writer from South Wales.

Needless to say, it’s a hard sell.

Snacked Up is, at heart, a way for me to reflect on the films I watch and the videogames I play (and occasionally the music I listen to): an excuse for me to write about what I love and hate. I’m not the biggest fan of the way most media criticism is handled on the internet, so I try to make my reviews more substantial than a simple checklist of points and faults. Read something like my review for The Image, and you can be the judge of how successful I am.

I also tend to get adventurous every once in a while, and throw up a big article or two, loaded with as many big words as possible to make me seem clever. It passes the time. You can find an index of every feature and review I’ve written (as well as my freelance work, if you’re interested) at the very top of the page. I don’t guarantee it’ll all be good: I’d like to think there’s a definite learning curve on display the more and more I write. As a general rule, the later the date, the less mention of willies there’ll be. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether that’s a good thing or not.

‘Snacked Up’?

Being ‘snacked up’ is, quite literally, being in possession of snacks. In large quantities. I usually tend to find myself snacked up before I watch a film, so I figured it was apt. Plus it sounds rude, and that’s always a bonus.

In all honesty, I’ve never been the biggest fan of the name, but it’s stuck around since 2011, so I can’t quite bring myself to change it.

Any advice?

Keep away from the walls and you should be fine.

Beyond that, if you’re looking for an introduction to the site, try my anniversary recaps, here and here.

Where do we go from here?

Well, I’d like to be able to bounce opinions around with you, so don’t hesitate to comment, share and subscribe using the box on the right, or the buttons below each post. If you’re looking for something more raw, you can find gut reactions and adolescent ramblings on my Tumblr blog, or maybe even on my Letterboxd account. On the other hand, if you fancy getting involved in seedy private talks, or simply letting me know how wrong I am about Final Fantasy VII, you can reach me at cclose@outlook.com, or occasionally on twitter, @ChayClose. Send me a picture of your genitalia and I’ll pretend not to be offended.

Regards,

CJ
