Which explains why I haven't been posting around these 'ere parts for a while. The most 'interesting' things (that do *not* involve movies) I have been doing recently have been trying out a new contact lens make (verdict - owowowow) and buying books (for myself).
Not that this is incentive for anyone or anything to make my life 'interesting' by any means. I like *boring*. It's just that it doesn't make for good blogging!
On the subject of books - whomever has been raving about The Hunger Games
... thank you. I read the first book in about four days. Which is damn good going. The other two are now on order from Amazon.
For those of you considering reading these - I'd recommend the first one certainly. And no one spoil me, please.
On the subject of books - I'm currently reading Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovich
. I'm two chapters in and... I think the best way I can describe it is one part Hot Fuzz
(alas minus the homoeroticism) and three parts The Dresden Files
I fear that I may be reaching for my next book before too long - which is a good thing. Will report back when I finish it.
Changing the subject to music for a moment - does anyone have a *legal* copy of The Black Hole
soundtrack that can be loaded onto a computer? It's asking for a lot, I know, as the only copy I can find is on US iTunes (which, being from the UK, is as much use as a chocolate fireguard!) but I thought I'd ask.
On a similar note - Pictures of the packaging for the 'Tron: Legacy' Blu-ray/DVD
Time for a random photo snurched from Twitter (three good guesses *who* one of the subjects is...) The Old and New faces of TV astronomy
Also - related to the above (especially if you think like *me*) The captions say these are photos from CERN - I'd say the Grid from 'Tron' meself!
Related to the above (again!) - Wonders Of The Universe
starts on Sunday 6th March at 9pm. Which means that it's on the same time as Being Human
for two episodes. Thank the Flying Spagetti Monster for BBC iPlayer and DVRs! Also, if anyone can choose what to watch and what to tape from those two - congratulations! you are a better person than me. Trufax.
*Still* on the subject of telly (paging nialla42
!)- Hawaii Five O
(2010) - yay or nay?. It, too, is on at 9pm, Sunday on Sky One, so is it one to have a looky-loo (most likely through catch up services - it's the BAFTAS next week. Or rather Inception
plays the bridesmaid *again*) or no?
And so, how are yous guys
