Vid stuff

I don't really post random vids but these amused me.

First up, my childhood hero reveals why there were never sequels to the original Star Wars movies.

Love it.

And now the late and very great Vivian Stanshall sums up a lot of what happens in my head.

Vive la grump.

A Blogless Month

Another blogless month. Not sure what I've been doing to prevent a blog entry. Nothing massive but maybe nothing that I felt warranted an entry.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2? Brilliant. I had no idea it would be as good as it was, considering I did not really like the previous three films. The final scene was nicely judged and the inclusion of some of John Williams piece, "Leaving Hogwarts", from the first film really helped it and brought a slight tear. But some of it was still mishandled, especially Snape's story. Always room for improvement.

Green Lantern. What a bloody shame.

Still, sunny days (after some of the worst and prolonged rain I can remember) and time spent in the garden. Nice.

About to lose my job in a few weeks but while the albeit small amount of pay is useful, I'm glad I'll have some time to get on with some other things like my writing, which should really be my primary focus. So I'm still scribbling away. Nearly finished the 3rd draft of a feature and beginning work on a sci-fi short.

Focus, sir. Focus.

Well, best get on with it.
