Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 25-7-2016

Oh, BUGGER … !

If you’ll excuse the language!


I forgot to set my alarm, last night!

Which means I’ve started writing this post, late.

I HATE that, when it happens.


I’m just glad of two things.

One?   I’ve a day off, today.

Two … ?   Last night’s episode of Robot Wars was fantastic!

I mean … Razer got knocked out in round one?   

Which was unbelievable.

Who slept through that final, between Carbide and Behemoth … ?

Right … 

I’m officially back at work, today.

Over lunchtime.

Which is sort of nice.


That means I can — hopefully — catch the first episode of the rebooted Robot Wars: on at eight, on BBC 2.


It sounds even madder than the original: as there’s a POV camera on the House Robots!

They Live — Hmm … 

23rd July, 2016.

Hmmm … 

Can I make a confession?

I do like a good film, now and again.

And … ?   When I can find the chance to watch one?

I’ll quite happily sit in, and watch one.

Something I’ve done, tonight.

Believe it or not, I’ve actually had the chance, tonight.

To sit in with John Carpenter’s They Live: something that had been sitting in my personal collection for some time.

And something that’s seen as a cult classic.

Going on what I’ve seen?

I don’t think it’s a cult I’d be joining.

Good lord … 

What HAS happened to München?

I got home, last night, to the news that a lone gunman … was active in the German city of Munich.


The last place I’d’ve expected to hear about a wandering gunman!

Quite what was going on, there?

I really couldn’t tell you.

My sympathies are going to the families of those killed.

My thoughts … ?

Are wondering about the man’s motives …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 22-7-2016

Imagine, if you will … 

Which sounds just a little … you know … over the top … 

Now I come to see it written down.

But do this for me.

Imagine a lawnmower.

Now rig it up, so you can drive it, through remote control.

Now … ?   Cover it it spikes.

Add a couple of axes.

And flippers.

And buzz saws.

And more spikes.

And possibly some sort of machine gun: which is the only time I’d suggest that.

Now … 

Add some more spikes.

Now you’ve done that?

Point it at the other guys lawn-mower.

Yes.   You’re right.

Robot Wars is back: on BBC 2, at 8 o’clock on Sunday, 24th July.

I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to it!
