I've an audible account, stopped paying for it (I basically froze the payments, but stayed a member) and all of these things are also available to me.

(I never listen to them though, but I should!)

General / Re: Eric Bradbury art for sale - 6 pages - prog 212
« on: 05 October, 2021, 11:18:25 AM »
I wish the original artists (or their estate) got some sort of kickback when original art sold. I mean I'm sure this was sold for probably less  than 200-300 quid at the time it was sold (in fact it may not even have made treble figures, given what the original art market used to be like)

I think this happens in france ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droit_de_suite - though I;m not sure how it works out in practice)

Anyway, lovely art, hopefully in a good home.

I'll be picking this up next year for a 5 year old Beano fanatic.
And maybe a flick through myself too!

Any word on the creative teams?
Can we assume the ever excellent Lew Stringer will be involved?

He's definitely in the halloween spooktacular (as am I, I think)

Yes and yes.

HURRAH!

Just an interesting question why choose Monster Fun and not something like Buster or Cor. I though both these titles where bigger.

Buster and Cor (as titles) are sort of meaningless to anyone below the age of 40, "Monster Fun" while both a throwback to an earlier title is ALSO a fairly good descriptor of what it is.

I have no insight here, but that seems an obvious answer to me.

Bill Willingham himself has something of a reputation. So I'm not entirely sure I'd read that substack without noting that going in.

I'm sure Jim will pop along shortly to once again patiently explain why it's not just a simple matter of 2000ad deciding to do a new comic. You have to bring your distributors/retailers along with you which is neither easy nor cheap.

Film & TV / Re: Jodie Whittaker to leave Doctor Who.
« on: 03 August, 2021, 06:10:02 PM »
That speech at the end of Capaldi’s run was cringeworthy. It went on forever and felt like the antithesis of what is Doctor was all about—although it was off course a Moffat blog post about what he thought the character should be. Awful. I kind of hope Whitakker’s doesn’t do something so overblown. “Bye, then!”

Sometimes Doctor Who becomes terribly self-indulgant and actorly and is usually more awful for it.

I suspect it's a show that the cast and crew feels it can lend itself to "luvviness" and so we end up with stuff like that.

I’d like to see Diane Morgan (of Philomena Cunk fame) play the next doctor
That is a helluva shout. I know her mostly from Motherland and that tired, no-effs-given personality would work perfectly.

god, you've GOT to watch her in the tv series Mandy - she's like bizarre, human cartoon - like a nihilistic mr bean.

But, I'd hoped that personality was what we were getting with capaldi (his insults to clara, etc) but then it got sentimental/schamltzy (and felt like someone asked capaldi what he liked doing "playing guitar!" "Ok, not sure how it fits, but we'll do that it'll be fab!", so I just dunno how the beeb would hold on to the edge.

My commute is the guts of two hours everyday, and this is by no means the longest out of my colleagues.

A 2 hour commute in Belfast ! Good god.(I do believe you. I’m just gobsmacked at it)

Lived and worked here all my life. Longest commute over an hour during the one year I lived in strangford and hitchhiked Down for a Saturday job.

Second longest was when I’d walk into town from the Ormeau road (about 30-45 minutes)

Well, Judges are not unthinking autonomous bots, so my post was merely suggesting one might do that (equally someone else might think - maybe I'll get that last idiot with a ricochet, no sense using a heatseeker with hiex going off everywhere...)
