Stargate Archives

I've just finished reading Small Favour the latest Dresden novel from Jim Butcher, highly enjoyable and builds on the previous novels which is really raising the status of the whole series. The TV show which I also enjoyed is currently being repeated on SKY1HD, damn shame they didn't have the bottle to do a real adaptation, that could have been eye-popping.

Kent McCord

A very good interview with Kent McCord (Farscape, BSG) over at Scifi Talk podcast.

My US PS3 arrived today, 48 hours from across the pond ain't bad. I went for the US version for the larger selection of titles some not even releases in the UK as of yet. I really do need to get the new Plasma, talk about a spaghetti junction of cabling, currently be HD box has no digital link but on the up side I've got the PS3 streaming content from the PC (but not the NAS).

GI Joe

Being a Brit I had Action Man as a boy so know little about GI Joe but I do know if Rachel Nicols is in the upcoming movie playing Scarlett and looking like this then I'm there.

My latest Harry Dresden novels arrived today, Dead Beat, Proven Guilty and White Night. I enjoyed the TV series but the Jim Butcher novels are a whole different class.
My first week of the new job has come to and end, it's ok but I have serious issues with the travel time.

Continuum Blu-ray

Stargate Continuum is being reported as a Blu-ray release in addition to it's DVD version, I've been waiting for a reason to add a Blu-ray player and up until know it was The Dark Knight but SG1 in HD goes to the front of the queue. Already watch the show and Atlantis in HD thanks to SKY but it's so much better Ad and Dog free.

The new job ain't too bad but it took me 75 minutes to travel 10 miles and yes there had been an accident but the day before it was 40 minutes, not sure the money is enough to justify this sort of hassle. I did have another interview this morning (6.15am) at a local plastics company, money not so great but £20 a week saving in petrol and night shift premiums.

I got my BSG Dog Tags from QMX, pre-ordered them quite a while ago so since they were already paid for a very nice present.

First day at the new job.
The commute is going to kill me, the money is simply not good enough to hit Nottingham rush hour coming and going. I've heard that after 3 months you can go onto a more flexible workday, start a little earlier and finish earlier, that would be better but those 3 months are going to drag.
To be honest I would like to keep looking for another job but my whole day is gone so I leave work to go for an interview more than once and I probably won't have a job to go back too plus zero state benefits.
On the plus side Lorraine the HR officer is just too pretty for words.

Pushing Daises

The show premièred in the UK yesterday and well I watched it again, that's three times and well if they release it on Blu-ray then I'll buy a player.
For some stupid reason ITV are not going to show episode 2, in their wisdom they have given it a timeslot (9pm Saturday) which only has 8 weeks before the next round of reality crap.

Scifi Review..

The latest BSG episode "Six of One" was excellent, some very good character building and the initial stages of the Cylon society going the way most cultures do sooner or later. Yesterdays Dr Who "The Fires of Pompeii" was again a bit of a let down but saved from being just average by some decent writing especially the scene with the two seers confronting the Dr and that Tate woman.

I finally got around to watching two of the better known scifi movies of recent times namely Cloverfield and AvP Requiem and I have to say both had excellent trailers and were a total disappointment. When you cheer on the "monsters" then I think the directors has lost their way.

I just got a phone call from a company I had previously interviewed for and they've offered me a job, it's not the one I wanted and the money isn't as good but I really do need to start earning and well it has been a while.

SG Continuum, why wait...

Quality isn't great but it'll soon be doing the rounds in it's proper presentation as the release date nears.

Welcome all,

I'm currently in the process of closing my main website having run into cash flow issues and since it was mainly used for sporadic blogging anyway I might as well make use of the blogger service.
