21st July, 2018.

Yep: I’m working, today.

And tomorrow, as well.

Yes, strong tea is definitely helping.

Yes, I really do want to go back to bed.

And yes: I’m looking forward to my next day off!

Oy, veh!

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 20th July, 2018.

20th July, 2018.

Yep: it’s official.

The trailer for Dr Who’s eleventh series — the first with Jodie Whittaker as the Thirteenth Doctor — was the official Dr Who Youtube channel: and BBC America’s.   Along side Jodie’s first appearance at the San Diego Comic Con.

Along side anything else?

I suspect a few of the clips in the trailer are from one or two episodes.

There’s quite a LOT of scenes with the 13th Doctor in the 12th’s outfit: so in the immediate aftermath of the regeneration.

You get to see the new sonic screwdriver in action.

No apparent shoots of the new TARDIS set … 

And still no date.

That’s a disappointment … 

But, it’s a nice trailer to see …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 19-7-2018: Le Metro

19th July, 2018.

OK, OK, I can hear you now: asking WHAT film … ?

What trailer?

This one: for the upcoming Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody.

It has to be said, that looks rather good.

For starters?   Rami Malek’s English accent sounds good.

And the chap playing Bryan May?

Has the voice spot on!

I have to admit … I wouldn’t mind seeing that.

Although the strange part?

Is that the films makers look like they’ve got the Live Aid sections of the film SO spot, you could be back stage.

That’s the bit that feels weird, though.

I can remember seeing Live Aid on TV: only two bands played well that day.

Status Quo were one: opening the Global Jukebox, the concert the world saw, with Rockin’ All Over The World.

The other … ?

Well … 

It’ll be something to re-live …

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 18th July, 2018

18th July, 2018.

Yes: it’s Wednesday, and it’s decidedly a morning … of a day back at work!

Oy veh … !

It’s ALSO a morning where — as ever — I’ve got the radio on.

And something that’s cropped up … ?

Is that streaming services provided by Amazon and Netflix — and others like them — are now increasing popular: mores than many pay TV services from the likes of Sky, Virgin or BT.

That’s possibly a good thing.

Although it would be nice if I could afford them on a regular basis.

Not on my money!

Saying that?

I’m sure the finances will improve.

Either way?

It’s interesting to see how the technology has changed, and developed, over the years.

I’d love keep watching it …


Talking of watching?

You know I caught The Endless, on Sunday?

It opened with a quote — “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” — from H. P. Lovecraft.

Which got me thinking I should try and catch a film based on his work.

Interesting watch, that …

The Color Out Of Space: Worth the Time

17th July, 2018.

OK, I’m definitely on to something, there.

That light?   The one Photo Booth seems to like me having on, when I record a video of myself?

Don’t half glare.

Possibly that’s my own fault for not wanting to switch the main light on.


At any rate … ?

It’s a Tuesday night.

Various bits and bobs have been done.

Including the fixing of my bathroom light.

You know?   The one that was only fitted a few months ago, by the chap who did my electricity check?

Yeah, you’d think a bulb would last, won’t you … ?

At any additional rate … ?

I’ve ALSO got Japan’s Gentleman Take Polaroids on in the background.

Track 7: Nightporter, if you must know.

Strikes me the band put a lot of work into that, and a handful of other, tunes.

But that possibly suits my mood, right now.

Mildly sleepy, slightly mournful … 

And having watched a film: the 2010 movie adaptation of the H. P. Lovecraft short story, the Huan Vu directed, The Colour Out of Space.

And yes: it’s slow …
