Zoe Saldana, 39.

Interesting what engages the mind at 7:04am...

I, er, had a dream...

Did it involve people on a jungle planet, the Starship Enterprise for some Galactic Guardians?  (didn't recognise the name so had to look her up - turned out I'd seen at least three films she's been in)

I'd be amazed if it's only three!

You're right, I've seen six - Pirates, ST, Avatar, STID, GotG, GotG 2 (still need to see ST III and the latest Avengers).

No mention of Sin City? What kinda secret old-man-pervert club is this?

All I can say is that there were, um, jungle-ish elements...
Anyhoo, Nicole Kidman is 50 today.

As you were, Sharky.

Looking forward to your musing on the Prog 780 (Megablast) era, Colin.
I remember really enjoying the line-up at the time, even Friday and Kola Kommandos!

The main event was of course the beginning of Buttonman- described by Tharg himself as a "real teen sleaze strip".  Old green bonce certainly knew what buttons to push at the time.

Man I want that cover: fantastic stuff, anyone know who it's by?

Yes, it is fantastic.
It's by our own Mimikeke.

where’s her nipple?

Being dutifully filled in with a red Bic biro by the 4% of readership in their teens.

Are they bespoke shelves - they are lovely.

Yeah, got the builder to install them for me towards the end.
Very sturdy and very lovely. Bit of a step up from the IKEA plastic storage boxes I was using, never mind their shelves.

We got to that bit in a typical 'Building the Dream' episode where cash / overspend just became an insanity inducing joke, so I just thought- why not?

What happens with the bit in the corner where the two racks of shelves meet?

That's where I've sealed off my screams.

I take it that the cut-out at the back of the shelves is to run cables?

Ah, nothing against Babylon 5, but that character was the bane of my life when it was popular - NO, I DID NOT NAME MYSELF AFTER A FICTIONAL CHARACTER FROM A TV SHOW I'VE NEVER SEEN! *  (also, if I had access to the time travel necessary to influence my parents in naming me before the show existed, I'd probably be living in a mansion by now!)

Relax mate - why don't you sit down with a nice cuppa and a Garibaldi?

Robin Redbreast, on YouTube. Loved it.  Tightly scripted bit of proto-wickerman / straw dogs folk horror.
Oh lovely! Picked up the BFI DVD sometime ago, really must sit down with it if it cones with the JBC approval!

Great film, and great disc from the BFI too.
Interesting interview with John Bowen included, discussing the chilling real-life inspiration for the story.

That's for the video game consoles & monitor, IP- I've been forced to contain all items that have not been approved by Headquarters to one room.

If there was one Star Wars film I thought people would want to go and see after being disappointed by TLJ, it's this one…!

Can't answer for anyone else, but for me the distaste of TLJ was so strong it was simply time to say goodbye to the Star Wars Galaxy from that point onward. Simple as that.
I've certainly had precedent with dropping previously highly regarded entertainments like a hot snot, X-Men comics and WWE wrestling come to mind.

Books & Comics / Re: Wildcat - any good?
« on: 12 June, 2018, 02:01:53 pm »
Really enjoyed the few issues of Wildcat I managed to pick up as a kid, but never read the full run (except Loner, which was available as a Fleetway / Quality mini-series).

Would love a complete reprint, but would place Scream and Oink higher on my personal wish list.

The comic collection relocation has finally begun.
A lotta Progs on the way to fill in those gaps...

Didn't expect it to be such a minefield- already second guessing every single decision to the arrangement!

Sad news about Anthony Bourdain, always found his shows very entertaining.
His very recent Dark Horse comic Hungry Ghosts was great too.

Not much interest in an online Fallout game for me.
Could be fun though.

Lovely Flint there.

Haldane was quite memorable for some reason, despite his all too brief appearance.
