Fire You're quite right about my mistake I knew it was called the death star but I think I had Stephen Kings Dark Tower on my mind as I'd seen a advertising poster for it recently and King was mention in my post. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
You do have a good point about realism in films. Especially SciFi flicks. Lasers and engines that make noise in space, spaceships that bank and manoeuvre like aeroplanes..the list goes on.
I think that dragons are real too..I'm sure my old maths teacher was one...think it was the tail that was a give-a-way.
Dogtrot I've been try to keep track as to whether or not the show is actually cancelled. It looks like they've got six episodes in the can and I guess that Fox will make up its mind up the whether or not to order more depending on ratings. But even the traffic on the official site is misleading with some people on the posting board there saying that it's cancelled. Someone even stated that they got word from Eliza herself that the show had been axed. A "oh hum" situation in any case, but I can't help wondering if this could herald a return of my beloved F♥ith
Almond Nope I'm not on vacation yet, still about two weeks to go. Didn't know my hire car choice was of so much interest. As you know I'm not risking driving in NY. but I have decided to treat myself to a limo from the airport to the hotel. Comes with a complementary mini bar, tv/video and cellular phone. I like pretending that I'm a bigwig, even if I'm more like an earwig. For L.A. I've gone for a convertible Mustang or similar as it said on the hire form. So I'll have to wait and see if I actually get one - but fingers crossed.
I've seen some of those Warlock books that you told me about sometime ago for sale on ebay. So I thought that I might try one of those next when I've finished with the "His Dark Materials" books (I'm half way through Amber spyglass at the minute), but I'll keep an eye out for Cordelia's Honor (sounds almost like a Buffy book title) and schedule that in sometime. Unfortunately, I don't get to read as often as I'd like so it takes me a while to finish a book.
I caught a trailer for "The Grudge" when I when to see "Saw" recently. It certainly looks a better flick than the Scoobie Doo movies and is a more positive career step for SMG. Speaking of SMG......
It seems that the loss of BtVS as affected poor Sky so much that they have practically cloned the series and created a British version. Here's a bit of blurb from the show's official site Set in a remote English school, Hex is the chilling story of one girl's exploration of the supernatural and her own sexual awakening.
Cassie is a shy student who discovers she is cursed by terrifying links to the past. Longing to be popular, but only truly loved by her best friend, Cassie will come to realise she possesses dangerous powers.
Stalked by Azazeal, the leader of the Nephelim, it will fall to Cassie to fight against the powerful forces that threaten her existence
Here's a link for a synopsis for the first episode. Could Thelma be anymore like Willow? Except Willow didn't have a crush on Buffy. Anyways, Hex starts on Sunday 17th October (which is pretty close to a well known evil date) at 21:00.
I managed to get hold of Wonderfalls on dvd and have just started to watch it. I've only seen the unaired pilot so far but it does remind me a lot of Joan of Arcadia. I'm thinking of starting a support group for people who are pestered by talking plastic animals/deities so that they don't have to feel bullied in to doing good stuff all the time.
bird faerie told me a bout a graphic novel about a teddy bear. No ordinary teddy bear, the galaxy's greatest evil escapes confinement on it's homeworld and possesses the body of a discarded teddy bear here on Earth. So you have this cute little teddy bear who is REALLY REALLY naughty. There is even a collaboration with Clive Barker on a parody of Hellraiser. "Deady the Malevolent Teddy", by Voltaire is available at around $5.95, although you maybe able to get it cheaper from some online retailers. No truth to the rumour that it's based on the familiar of some little known warlock.
Well I know that you're all missed this but it's back...Rack's track of the week...inspired by an email from our own Spikegood, late of this parish, concerning Mount St Helens it's Eruption by Van Halen
Appearing on the bands first album and one of the best debut albums that there is, this short guitar bit of widdle-y-ness helps explain why Eddie quickly established himself a guitar god. You can just close you eyes an imaging larva bursting through the magma, bellowing ash clouds and droplets of molten larva descending everywhere. Other notable reasons for having Van Halen one in your collection are a supped up version of the Kinks classic "You've really got me", "Little dreamer", "Running with the devil" and a personal favourite of mine "Ain't talking about love". Oh why did they get rid of diamond Dave?
Right..I'm off to Mt St Helens to toast some marshmallows...com'on teddy grab that fork..
Take care all!!!
