Just finished Normal by Warren Ellis. It's a glorified short story - maybe 100 pages - with a locked room conundrum: what happened to the guy, locked in his room with no way in or out, and why has he been replaced by a swarm of insects?

Boo-drokking-hoo.

It's been over a year since my subscriber prog arrived on a Saturday.

Welcome to Wednesday, punks.

Mrs X is away to Manchester with her sister - they live at opposite ends of the country and have a weekend away once a year somewhere in the middle.

So, binge watching Preacher S3.

again: I had to go online to find out how to finish the game's tutorial.

that was it for me and I quit the game, uninstalled the data, and sold the game on Ebay for a fiver, an act that feels less like a monetary transaction and more like passing on a cursed parchment that brings only misery.
A frustrating, joyless slog of a game.


My very experience of Endless Legend yesterday. Bought cheap on a sale, uninstalled when the tutorial asked me to put a marker on a "Dye Site" without explaining what that actually was. Life is too short, and I have lived more than half of it already.

Watched SW Ep 1 last night and it was good. I think they could make a sequel.

I wish they had.

Actually it was Ep 4, A New Hope, but I get confused. The gag stands.

Just ran the Cumbernauld 10K. 51:42 was the official time but I am going with my Fitbit's 50:55.

Either way, the fastest I have run for a couple of years.

Now just about to load up Astral Chain on the Switch.

Watched SW Ep 1 last night and it was good. I think they could make a sequel.

Bought the one without Dredd. And a lawgiver t. And some specials.

Don't want to start a new thread, but I am chuckling at hearing a Scottish commentator repeatedly refer to Boris Johnson as Maurice Johnston.

I've been lost in an alcholic fugue since Friday: do on Friday (5pm-11.30pm), do on Saturday (2pm-8pm, then a bottle of wine); football this afternoon (11.30-5ish).

NOT a normal weekend.

I could do this week in week out... twenty years ago.  Now, I just want a cup of team and a mint club.

I saw the pilot just after reading the books and quite enjoyed it. Sure, it was made without a budget or care, but it was set before the books (at the time the previous Dragon was going nuts) and had a few nods to the books’ backstory.

It’s just scary. Booth more than Cal, though.

Nope, but I'd guess Netflix closed them after they bought it.

No Prog today for me to read , or review - a big downer on Saturday

^^^^ same  :(

It's been at least four months since I got my subscription prog on a Saturday. Monday at best, often a Wednesday or Thursday.
