Look at this … new 24 sooner than expected

After having decided to skip the whole season of 24 this year due to the writer’s strike (effectively moving the season they’ve quarter-filmed to next January), Fox have revised plans and announced a prequel movie for the season, to air probably around September. Smart move I’d say, given it will be nearly two years between ...

Return of the DIY generation

An interesting story by Clive Thompson at Wired today, where he laments the general decline of the home handyman, and people’s lack of ability to fix things, leading to a more wantonly consumer culture, while also highlighting the return of that culture through Make Magazine and other high tech returns to old school tinkering. I ...

TV: A while till the last season of The Shield

From Michael Ausiello’s TV blog at the US TV guide site, I find this morning that the last season of The Shield, the most amazing, intense, intelligent and well-made cop show of all time, won’t be on until September in the US! It was expected by about April, so there’s some delays, apparently due to ...

Something good has happened

And I won’t be writing it here yet … it’s a big change that I have to go home and consult on, and think about, before fully committing to it. It’s been really quick, really sudden, but rest assured, it is really, really good as well. I’m not really telling anyone outside of a handful ...

Should I stay or should I go?

I’m coming up on two years in my current job, and I really wonder where the future lies, professionally speaking at least. It gets a bit conflicting at times, thinking about these future options. Apparently there are other jobs out there, but I really don’t want to consider it most of the time. Instead of ...

Walking boy

Alex has, in just the last week or two, really started to walk. It’s an amazing thing to watch, for all kinds of reasons. And it’s nowhere near as sudden as I imagined, instead it’s just a very gradual thing. Even though, of course, I’ve gone through all of this already with Will, it’s just ...

Review: Jekyll or Split personalities really aren’t much fun at all

Whenever I see something by Steven Moffat I watch it. You may never even have heard of the name, but for me, it’s that simple. For nearly 20 years now, he’s been one of the best British TV writers, from Press Gang through Coupling, his various Doctor Who episodes and now Jekyll. He’s the must ...

Happy perspectives

Went to my Mum’s 60th birthday party tonight. Nice restaurant by the harbour, good food, drink and company. I knew most of the people there, though it had been anything from a few to many years since I’d seen most of them. It was a good night, catching up with people, talking about family and ...

Review: Jumper or Teenage angst personified

Checkout out Jumper at the movies tonight. Was pretty good — probably not “magnificent”, but still a good piece of entertainment. With a storyline both innovative and familiar, it takes you into one of those classic “good vs evil” stories with a mechanism that is pretty damn interesting and visually very entertaining. Pretty good acting ...

Thinking …

I’m wondering if I need a career change. Or a career readjustment, or something. Or just more focus on what I should really be doing … Damn the weather has been awful today. The things you think about in that situation … Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...
