As ever with Wikipedia, if you think something's wrong or incorrect you can change it.

Just what I was going to say!

We're going to have to have this "she doesn't exist for you to approve of her physically" discussion again aren't we?

No? I'd say let this one go.

Also how amazing is it that a Star Wars film is coming out with more than two women in it?! NICE.

Hmmm, which other SW film has two women in it, in proper speaking roles where they get to be a character and not just reveal the rest of the plot (so disregarding Mon Mothma's one scene)?  Technically TPM had Amidala and Sabé, but not sure that really counts...

Could you also make Harrison Ford's hair a little less grey, fix the Falcon's radar dish, and add boobs to Captain Phasmas armor?

And not so teal and amber would be nice (did I complain about that already?)

Posting this a little late in the month, but five days down isn't too difficult to catch up on...

It's November, which means it's NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month, though it is international).

I've started, though wordcount-wise I'm a few days behind...

Seems I'm the odd one out, but I really don't like the cover. Dredd and especially the bike don't look right to me and the traffic in the background is very simplistic to my eye..
I actually agree with what you say, that the individual elements aren't the best that we've seen on the cover, but put together I love it!  We've seen Dredd on a bike many times, but somehow this cover brings something fresh to the scene.

It's been a while, hopefully I'll speed up a bit (I've been updating a wiki while I've been going along, which hasn't helped the frequency of my posts).  Prog 19 - Supercover No 1, A Robot's Best Friend...

Just watched it - well done for surviving to be a grand finalist!

It would be interesting to know how Rebellion renegotiated the promise to never reprint the material, or if there are other considerations (e.g. the old agreement was limited to certain territories).

Well, it's not like Rebellion ever made a promise not to reprint the material (or even existed at the time - I'm guessing Jason and Chris were schoolkids at the time).

I think I know where Jim is coming from but it could work in the hands of someone very clever and with a few different people thrown into the mix/minefield.

And pigeons.

Peck peck bang.

What's that American quiz show where you're given the answer and have to provide the question?

I love that seem to be keeping that blend of horror, gore and humour from the second film.
Nothing strange about that - you're actually likely to encounter someone being threatened with a broken bottle - the other things you mentioned are much less common.

Hmm, the bit I was actually responding to was the spoilered, which has been completely missed out of the quote...

dammit but I just like Rufus Hound. He's jolly. The idea of Williams & Hound being an immortal double act is a good one - hope this isn't the last we see of them!

Maisie Williams - always hanging around with the Hound :-)

Just been to see this, at Peckhamplex, my local, and I understand opening weekend attracted almost 150 people!

Great cinema - it was the only place we could find in London that was showing Dredd in 2D (so we went - twice).  Shame it wasn't available in more places in 2D, as I know a lot of people who would have gone to see it if it if the default screenings hadn't been in 3D.

... and Beyond / Night Garden both claimed

Beyond the Night Garden - when Iggle Piggle gets angry, people die...  :lol:

Glad I wasn't the only one to think of that!

There has to be some advantages to vegetarianism and veganism other than the moral virtue (can't say health as my former friends managed to have the most unhealthy vegan diet possible).

Health is the main advantage, but people who like junk food will always find a way to eat unhealthily.  Assuming they have a balanced diet, decreased risk of heart disease, various types of cancer, diabetes, obesity and hypertension (those were from a university website).

I remember when I went vegan for a couple of years, I didn't bother telling anyone because of the hostility I'd seen it elicit when my veggie mates had mentioned it to anyone.  Curiously, it had always been dragged out of them, or they'd tipped their hand when we went somewhere to eat, so I always wonder where that "veggies are always harping on about it" thing came from.

I get exactly the same thing.  There are people I've known for years who have no idea I'm vegetarian.  Usually the same one who accuse me (and other veg*ns) of harping on about our diet will spend half an hour telling us they'll order two dead pigs just to spite us, etc...
