Not an entry - regular readers of Zarjaz or Dogbreath(?) may have seen this already.

Feeling frayed at the edges today.

Just seen Al off to the station after a post con debriefing over bacon and eggs.

Had a great time (again) always a pleasure to catch up with like minded folk old and new.

Thanks to Paul and Ben for the free stuff.

Leigh and Nicky the donuts were a master stroke. Cheers!

Mike's still off the reservation though- the dirty stop out  ; )

You've so beaten me to the punch there Cthulouis-

Was thinking of having a pop at something similar with a Judge Death head.

It's a top entry. I think we have a winner..

IIRC the original file was on a flash stick that ended up in the wash.. I don't deserve anything for being that absent minded ; )

"Carioca" What would that be about, something to do with Rio de Janeiro or folk in Rio?

Tank Girl does Rio?

Beauty artwork BTW always a pleasure Rufus!

Oliver isn't the singularity it used to be, especially if the increasing number of badly behaved children in supermarket isles answering to the same name is anything to go by.    

I still maintain that Woody Timson sounds like a member of William Brown's Gang.  W.G. Timson on the other hand has a timeless ring of distinction. Way cool.

Film & TV / Re: BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT NO SPOILERS
« on: 26 July, 2008, 03:44:15 PM »
I wasn't disappointed. But then being disappointed in the past by previous big screen Batman meant my expectations weren't all that high to begin with.

I think the Batman copycats were just that- copycat vigilantes and not in collusion with either the Scarecrow or the Mob.

What I liked:

- Performances by Ledger and Oldman were consistantly solid and on the whole believable.

- The production design had a modern, gritty, realistic feel without being overly stylised like parts of Batman Begins i.e. The Narrows and the Wayne Monorail.

- The epic scale and clandestine nature of the opening bank heist, especially the way the Joker instructed his crew to cap each other for a bigger share of the take.

- The magic trick with the pencil, it pretty much set the tone of the rest of the film. Witty, immediate and just brutal.

What I wasn't quite so sure of:

- The Bat Voice.

- The 12A rating.

- The whole mobile-phone-sonar-vision thing, seemed like it was lifted from a previous Schumacher flick.

- Why kill off Two Face at the end?

I enjoyed it alot. But in the battle of the billionaire playboys this Summer, Downey Jr's Stark trumps Bale's Wayne comfortably.

I want Snyder's treatment to buck the general trend of poor to ordinary adaptations of Moore's work and there's alot to like about what I've read and seen already-

But please, what's with the blue beefcake Doc Manhattan?

It's 1997 all over again..

From Letter of the Week:

..the Iraq allegory has been done to death. Let's move on - enough is enough, any more is too much.
Let's not move on. Let's not sweep it under the carpet.

Artist Steve McQueen obviously doesn't feel there's been too much said already, his piece Queen and Country really brings it home for me:


Quote
"Queen and Country commemorates the British soldiers who have been killed in the ongoing war in Iraq. The project takes the form of a series of postage stamp sheets featuring a photographic portrait of the individual men and women who have lost their lives in the conflict so far. Each stamp also bears the standard profile of Her Majesty the Queen, the sovereign in whose name they went to fight."
McQueen and others are campaigning to make the stamps available to use as legal postage. An online petition can be signed here.

Solid Prog and Meg BTW.
