Interstellar Tactics




Changing Rooms: Hmm, a new study!

Yes, we’ve been doing a little bit of room swapping here at Cobley Towers, and I now have a real, propah study all to my ownsome. And yet, somehow, all the stuff that was crammed into a small space expands to fill the larger space. Its just too weird.

Anyhoo, the revisions to Ascendant Stars proceed apace, a rejig here, a translocation there, a much-needed clarification, here,here,here,there, and indeed over there…. I like this restructuring part of the revisions, wherein the writer gets to see the work and all its constituent parts from the point of view of technical functions. Just hope that it succeeds in the end.

Recent TV intriguingness – series called The Cape, in which a framed cop takes on a be-caped superhero guise to get back at the corporate sleazoid villains who did him down. Co-stars Summer Glau, and is fairly snappy and enjoyable. Rather better is Justified, starring Timothy Olyphant as a US marshall transferred from Florida to Kentucky, a series based on an Elmore Leonard story. Well written, well-acted, has a good amount of surprises and quirks, so am intrigued enough to stay with it.

    Very much looking forward to Ascendant Stars – can’t wait to see how it all ends!

    If you’re looking for more TV intriguingness, I highly (heh) recommend “Breaking Bad” – a fantastic drama about a high school chemistry teacher who is diagnosed with lung cancer and so turns to a life of crime, making the best crystal meth in the state. It’s loaded with dark humour, great performances and ongoing plot that just gets better and better.

    Ends mightily – of course ;-) Thanx for the tip on Breaking Bad – had a look at the amazon comments and reviews, yeah, sounds interesting, not entirely sure as me and Supersusan tend to like lighter stuff as well (Castle, Chuck Gary Tank Commander) and we still have 1st season of The Wire to get into….we`ll see.
