Startling News

You know, I've given it a bit of thought, but I think I'm going to give the new Star Trek a miss. I do this to spite anyone who thought it was good.

In other news, the small press One Trick Pony are going to reprint 'Johnny Cash' in their first collection. I'll give details and the like when I get them. I do rather like the press name, myself.

I'm just going to have to cry myself to sleep on top of an enormous pile of awesome Star Trek.

Yeah, I have no interest either.

Have seen Boy in Striped Pajamas last week; pretty good. And The Combination is on this week - I'm watching to see a couple of ex-students, but I believe it's not much good. Any idea?

Cinema-going has gone downhill badly.

I am somewhat interested in a rebooted Star Trek, despite my dislike of the spin-offs and complete indifference to the original. I got over it and watched Black Snake Moan instead.

It was good -- and really not the steamy exploitation thriller the packaging would want you to believe (though it does have a lot of mostly naked Christina Ricci). Not sure it's ever entirely convincing, but as a look at the Blues and a set of damaged people, it works.
