Your link cup overfloweth

Sdtrk: ‘Monologue’ by Adult.

It’s yet another linkdump! CAN YOU SMELL *needless pause* WHAT TEH ROCK *raises eyebrow* IS MICROWAVING

+ La Vie à Bord – ephemera concerning the history of Air France, but concentrating on the Jet Set years of the Fifties and Sixties. SWEET JESUS, YES

+ ‘Serenity and Firefly are worth fighting for, and we will show our numbers by purchasing Serenity on June 23 en masse, proving to Universal that Serenity deserves to keep flying.’
Serenity Day on 23 June. Good job I’ve not bought my copy yet..

+ The Institute for the Study of The Goat, The Pole, and Their Relative Positions, a.k.a, Goat on a Pole. Sure, why not

+ Are you a fan of Ricky Gervais’ podcast series? Well, then you must certainly know of the Pilkipedia, which of course is all about everyone’s favourite vacuous roundheaded Manc, Karl Pilkington. And praise “Bob”, he has a book coming out in September. WOOOOO

+ Samurai warriors 2 is due out in the States in May. Heh, technically I still don’t have 100% completion on the first one. But then really, who does?
And unf unf, Armored core: Last Raven is out sometime this Spring. It’s the last one for the PS2, so I expect it’ll go out with a bang. Heh, technically I’ve not finished Armored core: Nexus, but I’ll get round to it eventually

+ I’m looking at these pics and saying ‘Has The Hafler trio considered using these for their Cd covers yet?’


“BANG!” – an open letter

The room is actually painted in this fashion (above), so that when you look at it from a certain angle, you get the correct result (below). Brilliant

+ Death note (Vol.5 is the most recent release) is still rocking the bells. Apparently there’s going to be a live-action fillum version of it as well! At first, I was wincing when I first heard of this, but apparently the director is Shusuke Kaneko, who more famously directed the Heisei-era Gamera trilogy. All together now: ooohh

+ Speaking of Gamera, I’d like to see ‘Gamera: The Little braves’, even though it seems a wee bit.. kiddy.
Also on my must-see list of revivalist tokusatsu features would be Mirrorman Reflex and Bio planet WOO. And why has no domestic company picked up the rights to Keita Amemiya’s Mikazuki? It’s only six feckin’ episodes long!

+ Finally, I’m still madly in love with Delia Derbyshire. Apparently, in 2005, BBC 4 aired a documentary about her and a potted history of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, which can be obtained from here. Fab! (link courtesy of ektopia)

    I dig the room. I wanna do my bathroom like that.
    Hey, are you over-moderating or something? All these posts are so quiet…

    I can’t over-moderate if no-one posts to begin with! 😐

    i watch this program every time its repeated, really good!

  4. Davecat writes:

    I agree; ‘Alchemists of sound’ was really ace. Although they could’ve mentioned a little bit more about Daphne Oram — she’s even more obscure than Delia is. But seeing the BBC Radiophonic artists at work (especially Delia — yum) is really cool..

    And thanx for posting all the fab .mp3s on your site, so I always have something new to listen to. 🙂
