Saturday 12th JUNE 2010 - A Football-Free Weekend
Before I get into this, if yu are wondering what happened to my much talked about radio show...my lappy crashed and deleted part 4 and corrupted a large segment of part 5 when I tried to upload it...but most importantly, the response was, well non-existent. So unless you guys actually demand that I continue (I define a demand as a donation of £5 or more along with a special note saying PLEEEEAAASSEEEE do more radio stuff) I will knock that idea on the head before it drives me nuts.
Also, next video project is in pre-production and will probably be on my blip channel sometime in August or September 2010.
Right, on to business...
As I write this, I am once again sat in my parent's garden enjoying a glorious British summer afternoon having just returned home from work. A litre of rough Cider and a comfy garden recliner under a parasol...what more could I ask for...I'll tell you - freedom from the gods damned football!!!
In case it had escaped your notice, Today sees the England football team play their first match in the 2010 football world cup. And I've heard nothing but for the whole damn week - even BBC radio 4, who usually rise above4 such trivial crap have failed me by giving this over-hyped rubbish a lot of air time.
So, while I walked home from my seven and a half hours of money-making I got to thinking how best to get away from the sheople's entertainment for the rest of the weekend (although gods know how I will mange for the rest of the month if England manage to acutally win a couple of matches). And I have desided to give you a little look into my alternative Football-Free Weekend.
As many of you know I am a big classic Doctor Who fan. And much to my delight what should I have drop through my letterbox today but June's dose!!! Doctor Who: Kamelion Box Set which comprises two 5th Doctor stories "The King's Demon" and "Planet of Fire" (the latter of which has a brand-new feature length widescreen edit supervised by the original director) will make up quite a chunk of Saturday Night for me as I love all the bonus features on these dvds and as usual 2 entertain seem to have pulled out all the stops and given us a brilliant set of extras including deleted scenes & outtakes, retrospective making-of documentaries and a bunch of other stuff too.
I may possibly watch this week's new Doctor Who episode "The Lodger"...but so far, Matt Smith's 11th Doctor has made me cringe...I only watch it if I happen to be in the living room and my parent's have the TV on BBC1. I will watch series 5 when it comes out of blu-ray, and even then I think it'll be the hot-ness of Karen Gilliam that keeps me watching.
