breaking bad

The Light is Tearing Me to Pieces

I have seen people on my f-list post links to the trailer for Watchmen, but I haven't been looking. I didn't want to be disappointed-to-enraged.

But in the end I succumbed and - wow - it actually looks really promising. Watch it here. If only, if only, they made films like they do trailers, abandoning exposition and characterisation for dream-like enchantment. Perhaps I need to get spaced out before I watch it.

The Terminator trailer also looks good (T3 having being utter shite). Quantum of Solace looks good.

And making it four for four iainjclark links to a trailer for a movie I hadn't hear of: Outlander, which is vikings vs aliens starring John Hurt. Sounds fab.

Oh. I am setting myself up for so much disappointment aren't I? But I can't help it, it's like supporting the England football team. Blockbuster movies I know you will never let me down again how I love you. What?

Holiday begins

I am just setting off for Brittany now. Catch 11pm ferry from Plymouth to Roscoff etc. I have packed a surfeit of books. My son has decided to come with us which I am glad of.

The last few weeks have been so stressful that I hardly have had a chance to think about this break, just endure until it arrives, and now it has arrived.

A very special thank you to happytune for helping me over the recent difficult times and also for taking care of my cats (with V my friend from work) which allows me to get away for a couple of weeks.

See you all in August.
