Nik Nak’s Weekly Teaser — 29-6-2016: The Television Centre of the World

Yes, it’s Wednesday.

And yes … 

I’m practically skint!

There we go.   That’s what happens when you treat yourself to a blu-ray copy of Event Horizon.

You end up short of sleep, and short of cash.

Still, at least I’ve enough to go and get myself some milk.

I hate tea without milk!


Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 29-6-2016

Damn … 

I think I could do with being back in bed!

To be honest?   To be honest, I could probably have helped myself, there: by getting an early night.

But there you go … 

I was RATHER keen on settling in with Event Horizon!

Still … 

No harm done.

So long as I get some caffeine in me … !

Event Horizon — Still DAMN good!

28th June, 2016.

You know, I’ve — currently — got some free time on the go, right now.

I’m not complaining.


It lets me get on with some stuff I want to do: writing, mostly, but a little shopping, as well.

Including a blu-ray.

Now, you’re going to be thinking two things, aren’t you?

Why on earth didn’t you just rent the film from iTunes, as you usually do?   

Well, frankly, I didn’t have enough credit in my iTunes account.

And frankly?   Some of the specials that came with the disc look impressive.

OK, that’s maybe not an excuse to go seeing Event Horizon again.

But when a film’s this good, I want every excuse I can.


Nik Nak’s Daily Teaser — 28-6-2016: Saxophony

Drat … ! I didn’t get to see Event Horizon, last night.

As the blu-ray I’d bought hadn’t finished, by the time I’d got around to wanting to watch something.

Still, it’s ready to go, as and when I get another chance.

Which might be, tonight, I don’t know as yet.
At ANY rate … ?   Last night saw me watching 13Hrs, instead.

Nice film, that.   Especially when you consider it’s only 99p to rent the thing on iTunes.

Not bad for 99p …

13Hrs/Night Wolf — The return of the 99p Rental

27th June, 2016.

You know, I HAVE to confess … 

I like a movie … 

Now and again!

Frankly, I’ve been working, erratically, these past few weeks: AND putting a lot of effort into the blog.

Finished off an interesting Teaser, today: and helped an old friend proof-reading an early couple of blog-posts.

The friend in question is someone I’ve known for sometime: and both bright, young and just starting writing.

If you DO see her stuff out there, please, be encouraging: she IS only young!

At ANY rate … !

At any rate, I’ve had time off, today.

Time off that I’ve … 

Frankly, looking forward to catching a film.

I had thought to catch up with the 1997 science-fiction/horror film, Event Horizon.

But that … ?   Hadn’t finished ripping, by the time I wanted to see it.

So … I mooched through the iTunes store to see what I could see.

I’ve got a pile of movies on an internal drive I use as storage.

Including the film I saw, tonight.

The film … ?   Was the Jonathan Glendening directed, 13Hrs.

The fact iTunes had it as a 99p rental?   Got me thinking I should see it.

Those can be surpringly good for the price.
