My First, Last, and Only, Latest Star Wars Trailer


No great plot points revealed. Major characters seen in action. Misdirections that may or may not be accurate … in other words, the perfect trailer.

For the next 65 days this will sustain me. 🙂 


And because Star Wars will always miss their general …

Keeping an eye on us all


Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Finale

I know it was aired on Tuesday, but what with my toof and trying to get back into that dastardly rewrite, I didn’t get to watch the double header until this evening … but … it was so worth the wait.

There were so many great moments … who am I kidding? The entire show right from the beginning, (with a couple of weak episodes) has been nerd-gasm-worthy. But being a total Star Wars fan there was one moment that had me dancing on the ceiling. (not quite literally, but I did sproiiing out of my chair and squee)

Agent Coulson holograms himself to fool the bad guy, and just before the bad guy rips the holo-projector off the wall, Coulson says, “I always wanted to do this.” He bends over a little and says …

Channeling his inner Princess! :)

New Star Wars Trai … Noooo! Fingers in ears, eyes closed … “La la la la.”

Seems like everybody and their derg is featuring an ‘exclusive’ clip of the new Star Wars movie.

After my official fan-dyke squeee, way back when the very first trailer was released I decided to not look at any more ‘reveals’ in order to wallow … erm … enjoy the fully immersive experience I’m sure the movie’s going to be.

But … Holy Gucamole Batman, there are bits of it scattered everywhere. On my favourite blogs, social media, (not that I do much social media-ing) websites, cinema. (I don’t watch TV, so there’s that, too)

I’m sure if I drove off Widder Island there’d be huge billboards all along the highway with ‘selected stills’ in glorious technicolour. I could use them to distract me from watching a roadworks crew ripping out old telegraph poles and replacing them with shiny new ones while I’m stuck in a line of traffic waiting for ‘em to let us through. But I’m not going to look at billboards either so I’d have to just wait, and wait, and wait … it’s probably best if I just stay here on our gorgeous Autumn-y Island.

Widdershins MaskToday I’ve been trying to figure out how to make a planet from bits and pieces of cosmic debris for a new novel I’m beginning. I want something elegant, but it appears I must use brute force to achieve it. (and a generous helping of sci-fi wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey, flim-flam)

When you think about it, brute force is creating all those beautiful visions of our universe, which from our mortal perspective, are truly the most elegant things ever.

So, I’m going to slam a bunch of asteroids together and see what happens.

Dust, like stars.

First it was the music industry, then the publishing behemoth crumbled, now, at last, it’s TV’s turn!

Addendum VI

In the Spirit of the Season, and with the knowledge that I have almost reached my limit for Bing-o singing ‘I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas’, I offer you a rendering of the Christmas Spirit, and it’s companion piece, for this month’s Addendum.


… and …

… You’re welcome.
