Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 17th July, 2018.

17th July, 2018.

Yes … 

With predicted temperatures somewhere in the mid-twenties, it’s actually looking like it’ll be cooler than yesterday.

I don’t know about you … ?

But I’m looking forward to it: it’s a day off, and I’d like to get something of a breeze going through the flat.

It is a day off, after all … 


At ANY rate … ?

It’s a day off: one in which the gentle tones of this week’s episode of I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue on in the background.

And a possibly conundrum … of what, if anything, to watch, tonight.

We’ll see, shall we?

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 16-7-2018: Mo’ Money

16th July, 2018.

Yes: I’m right, aren’t I … ?

There’s interesting stuff doing the rounds.

For starters?

I’ve — as ever — got Radio 4’s Today programme on: and John Humphrys is giving a Russian hell.

Or getting hell from Sasha Baron Cohen.

One of the two.

At any rate, they’ve just had former Education Secretary, Justine Greening, on.

Whose calling for a three option, second Brexit referendum.

A three option Brexit, please note.

I HATE agreeing or endorsing anything said, done or even breathed on, by a Tory.

It’s on a par with asking Hilary Clinton to vote Republican.

But?   I’ve been thinking for months that we need a second referendum: one with exactly her suggestions.

The Government’s making a complete hash of it.

Her options?
  • The soft Brexit proposed by Theresa May’s Chequers document.
  • A Hard Brexit: leaving the EU with no deal.
  • Staying in the EU.

I don’t see it happening.

Mores the pity.

But I know I’d be happy to vote for staying in the EU.


Before I move on … ?

I actually manage to catch … the series 11 teaser trailer*.

Although whether it’s a trailer or not is generating discussion on Twitter.

At ANY rate?

I’m pleased to have seen it: it looks good.

But notice that, beyond the ‘Coming This Fall’ text on the US version?

There’s no actually airdate.

That’s disappointing … 


In amongst all this?

I managed to catch a film, last night.

One called The Endless.

Quite what to make of it?   I’m sure I couldn’t say.

But it’s an interesting film.


The Endless: Hmmm …

15th July, 2018.

You know, there comes a time …

No, let’s forget opening pretentiously, shall we?

I’m me.

And would far rather be blunt.


I’d ALSO far rather be dancing the boo-ga-loo.   But am very aware my knees couldn’t take the strain.

And that at my age, and with my build … ?

Dancing is going to look undignified.

At least if nothing else, I can put some classic Japan on and tap my feet.

If I don’t look undignified … 


At any rate … ?

At any rate I’ve had a restful day off, today: dinner with the family, and some laundry, included.

Oh, and making movies with iMovie.   Teaser videos, anyway.

Experimenting with some of the filters can be handy … 

As you might have noticed, watching the intro.

I ALSO like watching TV: if there’s anything worth watching on.   As my family will tell you, the only reason I was interested in the World Cup final, today?

Was the fact the first teaser trailer with Jodie Whittaker’s 13th Doctor aired during half time.

Would’ve been nice to see an air date, there, but still …

It’s nice to see it.

It was ALSO nice to see what I eventually ended up seeing, tonight.

Yep: I sat down with the 2017 film, The Endless.

No … 

Beyond saying this is a good film?

I couldn’t quite tell you what I’ve seen.

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 15th July, 2018

15th July, 2018.

Right, then … it’s a Sunday … 

Which you’d possibly guessed.

Which means … ?

Well, frankly, dinner at my family’s, and finding out what my nephew, Jude, has been up to.

Oh … 

And try and get some laundry done!

It might JUST pay me to put a few things on the airer, as well … 


Saturday, 14 July 2018

Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 14-8-2018: Bastille Day.

14th July, 2018.

Yep: it’s a Saturday, and frankly?

It’s another early Saturday!



You watch the news, don’t you … ?

I’ve just seen one piece go past.

That Sinn Fein’s former leader, Gerry Adams, has had an explosive through at his house: by dissident republicans, apparently.

I know the guy’s got blood on his hands: from his earlier career as the leader of the Provisional IRA.

But … 

Well … 

I think someone wants to upset the applecart.

That doesn’t help Northern Ireland.


Oh, one for the fans, by the way?

I’m not a football fan.

But I’m quite possibly going to be taping the half time section of the final, tomorrow.


The trailer for series eleven of Dr Who airs during half time.

I’d like to see that …
