Prog / Re: Prog 2037 - Unexpected Item in the Fragging Area
« on: 28 June, 2017, 12:19:42 am »
One thing I really loved about Grey Area this week is that there was a totally unconnected little story happening on the right hand side of the panels with the business-alien. I think there was an alien which did something weird (bloodsucking?) to a drunk alien and then it looks up and sees a lady-alien and they fall in love. It was rather sweet.

Ahhh, takes me back to Travellers...

Me neither, nor that it was so close to blowing up - no wonder Tharg's come here!

The threat of a supernova is fake news: Tharg is an economic migrant pure and simple, just here for the groats our over-generous comics fans shower such moochers with, while home-grown editors like Big E and Lord Peter Flint are on the scrap heap.  We need to give the ETC the powers they need to deal with his kind.

The truth about Starlord has finally come to light - he was deported!

The Cask in Pimlico has plenty of craft and other beers, some quite lethal some towards 11% ouch. I like Barnsley bitter there and they used to have Dark Star ales haven't been for a while alas.

Had to double-check if it was the one I thought it was - it was: '8 minutes walk from work'.

I never got to see the TV series, but love the film - if I ran a cinema I'd double-bill it with David Lynch's Dune ;)

Impressive.  10 minutes of ranting about a comic that you hate.  Not to mention the £4 spent buying the comic you hate.  At least he gives some bland reasons why he hates it!

Looking further down his list of videos, there is one where he posts a congratulations for America electing Trump as president.  Perhaps he does comedy and irony incredibly well?
At work so can't listen to it, but I do note that one of his other rants is about a satire of Trump - so that's probably what inspired this rant as well...

Did the wraparound cover print ever get released?

Film & TV / Re: Damon Lindelof to Develop WATCHMEN for HBO

Antagonistic nations won't simply forget their differences in the face of one tragedy, no matter what diplomatic goodwill is expressed.

Actually...

Operative word being 'forget'.

I don't think the comic or film suggest that the USA and Russia are 'forgetting', just working on diplomatic solutions instead of blowing the world up.

Film & TV / Re: Doctor Who - Series 10 (Spoilers)

I suspect for some it's disappointment due to the fact the show's really hit it's stride. Arguably, though, it could be doing that because everyone's on the way out now and giving it extra. (Although I'd argue Capaldi has been good throughout, if inconsistently directed and written.)


I think Capaldi has been fantastic, as have some individual episodes and scenes in his run.  The rest of the writing, on the other hand...

I love it! I like it!

It could be much better if they don't featured  in any trailer or last week teaser!  :-[
I try to switch off before any trailers appear :(


Some episodes (and films) are pretty well constructed to reveal surprises, which have been completely obliterated by trailers, and in the case of one new-Who first series episode, the title.

I thought it was mentioned in the film that the signal wouldn't pass all the way to the top* because of the amount of floors blocking the signal.

Cheers

*even though there is a massive gap leading all the way to the top of the tower. I may be misremembering.

I thought it was simply the distance between the bottom of the central shaft and the top, not anything blocking the signal.

I see that the DUP are all big Black Lace fans, "Agadoo doo doo shake the magic money tree." So much for austerity being a necessary evil to bring public finances back under control. And we taxpayers are footing the bill for this blatant bit of bribery.


As well as £1bn to the DUP Northern Ireland, another £6bn on two new aircraft carriers.

Interesting - not one of the obvious flashy splash pages, so shall look forward to listening to the podcast (not that I don't anyway).
