Reading the new Lawless book, I only just realised Kill a Man Jaroo is a pun on Kilimanjaro.

Ah c'mon.
That's Justin Credible.

News articles composed of Twitter comments.

When did this become a thing?
Sure, you'd expect it from the gutter press websites, but when you have 'news articles' on RTE.ie simply printing the opinionated tweets of some randomers it's head scratching.
Or am I missing the point- is it the fact that 'Twitter is reacting' to something the actual news?

Now if you'll excuse me I have to go outside and shake my wizened fist at the sky.

Which wing is for the Thrill containment storage?

The shed (as I've been informed).

You must try a Galway Hooker too of course.

Watched Rob Zombie's 31 last night, overall watchable, but it veered from wretchedly derisive to inspired (the inspired bits being the first and last 5 minutes).

Really great final scene, Aerosmith's Dream On was used perfectly.

It's been a long and very expensive slog for the past year, but the house build has finally started.
It's 51% excitement and 49% pure stress, but damn, I'm enjoying the ride so far.
A great spell of weather means we're ahead of the Death Star on our construction schedule- someone inform Lord Vader.

"Death by Scotland."

Brilliant :)

Great line.

A better episode this week than the last 3 in my view, but still not as good as the first half of the season.
The sheen is starting to wear off Bill & Nardole slightly too.

Still, only three episodes left with the mighty Capaldi (including the Christmas special)- I intend to enjoy them.
The teaser for next week looks great too.

Quite happy with the Nintendo E3 announcements.

I won't be expecting Metroid Prime 4 anytime before 2019 though.

On the topic of Ennis, I'd always be inclined to give his stuff a go.
His big hits- Preacher, Hitman, Dicks and The Boys were wildly entertaining over the years, and some of the newer stuff like Section Eight and Code Pru still raise a smile.

Film & TV / Re: The Handmaid's Tale

Wasn't going to bother with this mainly due to the glut of TV box sets out there and the seemingly reducing numbers of hours in the day.
Then I remembered that I recently slogged through Prison Break 5, the climax of which included a scene where the main good guy bypassed the main bad guys ultra high tech security scanners by tattooing the baddies face to his fingers, and thought I should introduce something a bit more thought provoking to my viewing repertoire.

And I'm ever so glad I did.
Watched the first three episodes- powerful, unsettling and compelling, with a little bit of 80s pop. A winner.

Great stuff Terry.
Movie posters wouldn't be my own personal niche, but they're gorgeous.

I assume difficult to obtain (and expensive)?

Didn't mean anything sneery there by the way Hawk, I was thinking more along the lines of "Warning: The following episode of The Walking Dead may contain scenes of violence and horror".
Always seems so laughably ridiculous.

A very talented artist, shame we didn't see more of his work for the House of Tharg.

Just had a flashback there of (I think) a series of Star-Scans that ran in the Meg, called 'World of Bliss'.
Anyone recall that or have I lost the plot?
Nothing on the usually dependable Barney.
