Wilford Brimley has gone:


He'll always be Uncle Douvee to me, personally.

I'll always see him as Blair in The Thing. Another great character Actor has gone.

I still tend to walk around people, despite the newish One-meter rule, and I always use a mask in a shop. The 'Store Marshall' is no more, and the shop staff have removed the arrows placed on the local Tesco Superstores floor. We can wander hither we want now inside. Animals, particularly Birds, seem less inclined to run away from me. I wonder if a sudden depletion of human encounters due to the Lockdown has made creatures less afraid of us. That said, I saw a giant rat in the Garden. That's one critter than can keep its distance. I've noticed a lot more cyclists on the roads and more roadworks as Companies use the Lockdown as an excuse to dig them up.

It'll be lockdown part Deux! I can't wait to face queuing, masked unhappy people and rioters plus Judges beating me for breathing too loudly. Lockdown fever here I come! No, it sounds terrific with a sort of Crystal Maze vibe to the show.

Miserable news about Ian Holm, his final speech to the surviving crew of the Nostromo in Alien, is one of my favourite scenes from Cinema. His Bilbo Baggins in LOTR was brilliant casting and superb performance as well.

Here's the link to the Down The Tubes animation. Looks very Cyberpunk if a little stilted movement-wise, but a very impressive bike and an excellent render of the infamous Judge. The music is a little too distracting for me.

Wretched news about Denny O'Neil, who's work on Batman will entertain generations to come. His sad passing at this grim time seems to sum up the dire straits the Comic book industry is in at the moment.

Both Judge Dredd and Rogue Trooper are a result of genetic manipulation, rather than natural selection. Built for specific tasks, Law Enforcement, Warfare, they had the traits that helped them survive in their various environments. Like ourselves, they did not choose their inheritance; it was bestowed upon them by scientists, as we had our genes given to us by our parents. Though these are fictional characters at some point humans will be able to manipulate the genetics of their offspring. So the hard question is, should we do so? If we can make everyone equally healthy, eliminating physical disability, say as a human trait is that not for the greater good? Or is that the grim trap, that an arms race of genetic traits driven by social desires makes us very alike in the end, destroying the diversity of humans by the very thing we hoped would make us more 'equal.'

Here's Frank Spotnitz talking [rather too quietly] about his plans for a W40K TV show. Audio quality is not the best. https://youtu.be/6XPzMr_Mia0
