life begins - me


Been watching various promos lately, the extended Kitchen Confidential promo looks damn funny! (As is the entire pilot episode - there's a couple of cringe-worthy parts but they're balanced out by the laugh out loud moments - of which there are many!). All in all it looks like it deserves to be a success, and going on the pilot episode it will be.

Veronica Mars, not inspiring at all. How to recap the entire run of season one in thirty seconds (or whatever it is) without mentioning Lilly once. Yeah, that works.

Lost. Okay, so I don't watch E4 because I loathe and detest reality TV and right now all they're showing is Big Brother and repeats of Friends (out of sequence) so I had to actually download this promo from the Lost Media site. Huh? Ooookaaaay. If you've not seen the E4 trailer then I'd recommend you watch it. It bears very little relation to the show other than the fact that they're on the beach and the plane is in pieces behind them. It's just.... weird. And not doing much for  engelsteorra and mine's campaign to use references to the show in the Freshers' Fair. One look at the promo and the head of the marketing forum is going to take one look at us and boot us out of the team. Heh! In the promo, the cast are all dressed for a posh soiree and dancing dreamily to something that sounds very much like Sneaker Pimps but I can't place the actual song. If you've never seen Lost I honestly don't know if that trailer would pique your interest or not. Trust me, it's worth watching!

So that leaves another promo I've been watching... lemme think... what on Earth-That-Was could that be?


32 days and counting.
life begins - me

Doing the dance of "I was right!"

At the Serenity convention we were talking about the upcoming action figures and how we knew one was Mal and another was Jayne. The third was under wraps and no one had any clue who it was. There was much talk of River and possibly Inara. I said at the time, "it'll be a bad guy, it'll be a Reaver."

Guess what?

I was right!!!


In bad news, I got no post today. At all. Well, I got a card from the gas board who'd tried to read my meter but that doesn't count as mail. So no tickets yet. I'm choosing to believe that's because there's an extra sorting office between me and the others who got theirs.

And on a completely different tangent, since I have a few Kane fans on my flist here's one of the tracks from the Acoustic Live in London CD - Mary Can You Come Outside Even if you've never heard them before, have a listen! (the true story Chris mentions at the start of the song is that a girl lived next door to him and her boyfriend used to mistreat her. Chris could hear them fighting through the wall so one day "I politely knocked on the door and politely beat the shit out of him")
