It’s Bigger on The Inside

Lego group has just made the dreams of my childhood a reality. Lego. Doctor. Who. Oh em gee! There are no words to describe just how cool this is to me. Here is the official blog post from Lego. If you need me, I’ll be over in the corner squealing like a teenage fangirl.

The Future Is Now

So I’m sitting here at 2:33 in the morning because, like always when I should be sleeping, my brain is in idea overdrive. I’ve written about 2 or 3 pages worth of words for my book (an action scene that takes place later in the sequence and some rough ideas of how things might play out) and while the ideas are still flowing, I’m starting to lose focus and get distracted. I think I’ll call it a night and see if I can get some sleep before work in the morning.

Before I go, I will leave you with this idea that I’ve been toying around in my overactive imagination for the past day or so. If there was one science fiction franchise (TV series, Movie, Novel, RPG, Video Game, etc) that you would like to be real, what would it be?

The Written Word!

Ahh spare time, oh how I miss you!

If you’ve been paying attention at all to my blog you’ll have noticed that the little widget down at the bottom left that is supposed to show images for all the books I’ve read/am reading/etc. hasn’t changed much in the past … 6-8 months. I’m sad to say that I have not read a book for about 2 months. I feel somewhat dirty and shamefaced for admitting this. I just haven’t had the time.

The widget is more than a little out of date however and a pain in the arse to update so I’m just going to say…. Scott Lynch’s Gentlemen Bastards Saga is good. I highly recommend the first book, The Lies of Locke Lamora, and while the 2nd book, Red Seas Under Red Skies, wasn’t quite as good in my opinion, it still was a damn fine read.

I’ve got a couple of books on the go at...

A Saturday Night @ Elrond’s Place

Why hello again intarwebs. I see we’re still on speaking terms. How the hell are you?

Okay… Obviously I haven’t posted in awhile. Haven’t really had much to say. The baby is still gestating (we’re somewhere near the 18 week mark now) and all is right in the world.

So rather than bore you all with the mundanity of my life I have decided to waste your time with this amusing little gem of a gif that I found online.

Enjoy.

Who Watches The Watchmen?

Wooo! Watchmen Trailer

I’m moderately enthused to see this. I’ll be honest and say that I’m a little nervous about the look of the movie. I fear that it will be yet another butchering of Moore’s work but from what I can see there, it looks very faithful to the original and that querrelous auld git named Alan Moore will like it despite himself.

At first glance however it seems a little too glossy and shiny. In my mind’s eye, the Watchmen world was far darker and grittier but we’ll just have to wait and see. Casting, well I’m going to leave that one alone. Many people far, far nerdier than me have already spent hours in their batcaves and “command centers” designing the perfect dream cast of this movie and while I’ve dabbled here and there and have my opinions (*cough* Jeff Goldblum as Dr...

And now… I go see Hellboy 2 with my sweetheart. Yay me.
