  • V busy at work for the next couple of weeks, so blogging may be light.

  • Almost as soon as I posted the other day that I was ready to start writing for Lib Dem Voice again, McGruder died. And I think this time she may be beyond dragging out of her grave. So, you know, for a while I shall have to fight Mat for computer time, and, uh, blogging may be light.

  • Watched Crotchw00t the other day. It felt like GenericUSTVDrama #792, and not like Crotchw00t at all, and I wasn't that sold on Crotchw00t in the first place. That said, I shall probably still watch it, mainly for the fun of shouting "but that's bollocks!" at it when they make technical legal and political errors, of which there were many.

  • I am still undecided about what comics to get when the DCnU kicks in in September (except Batwoman, obvs). However, part of the reason I'll still be getting at least some is so that I can keep reading the stellar DC Women Kicking Ass on tumblr: two reasons why are here and here.

  • On Orange Wednesday this week, it was Holly's turn to choose, and she picked Kung Fu Panda 2. And you know what? I really enjoyed it. Angelina Jolie, Michelle Yeo and Lucy Liu are all ace, but the praying Mantis was my favourite (You guys, I never thought I would I would die like this. I thought I'd meet a nice girl, settle down, she'd bite my head off...). Sure, there is Generic British Bad Guy and Jack Black is... well, Jack Black in Panda form, but it has many redeeming features, and a female director.

I... kind of enjoyed part 1 of Crotchw00t, though admittedly, mostly for the lulz. Part 2, not so much. I can see all of the things that make me dislike Rusty's writing so much of the time, which makes me half-expect that the dilemma will somehow be solved by deus-ex-machina-Tinkerbell-Jebus-Gwen.

I tend to agree with you on this season of Torchwood (though I liked the previous 3 a lot more than most folk, or to put it another way, a lot more than I like almost all other telly)

They seem to have crossbred Torchwood with something like The Event, when for me it would have been better to get an infusion of something more like Gavin & Stacey to up the Taffyness. My national & regional bias is probably coming to the fore there 8)

(thinks about this idea more, enjoys the role of Uncle Bryn in alternative-Torchwood too much)

Duw duw Jack, that's amazing that is mun. So, um, this Retcon stuff. Would it work on, say, memories of a fishing trip? Just curious, no reason...

A blog I think you may wish to follow:
