Dead Set TV Trailer
Fantastic concept and seems to have high production values too. This looks like it could be brilliant. See a variety of trailers on the official site.

Heroes Unmasked
3x03 On a Heroic Scale

6x01 The Virus Part 1
On to series six somewhat quicker than I was expecting -- normally I'd've waited for the DVD's inevitable price drop to around £15, but with series seven only a week away -- and this season available on DVD already (usually it's not out til the weekend before/after episode one) -- I thought it would be good to catch up in time to watch the new series when it's on.

Part 2 (of 3)


After the Sunset (2004)
[#67 in 100 Films in a Year 2008]
Cool poster, shame about the film.

Se7en (1995)
[6th or so watch]
Despite often citing it as my favourite / one of my favourite films, I haven't actually seen Se7en for years (following a spate of watching it far too many times in one go). Luckily, it's still brilliant.


Three Uses of the Knife by David Mamet
Chapter One
Subtitled On the Nature and Purpose of Drama, if you were wondering what it was about. My word of the day -- not used in this, but thought about it -- is "obfuscate".

shameless eBay self-promotion: almost the final update, hopefully

I still have several items for sale on eBay, believe it or not. Anything in bold is being bid on, anything crossed out sold since this was posted; everything else also has a Buy It Now option.

  • Additionally, there are several items I've re-listed, now at a lower price. Fortunately, several have sold already:

  • From Russia With Love (Penguin Modern Classics edition)
  • Live and Let Die (Penguin Modern Classics edition)
  • On Her Majesty's Secret Service (Penguin Modern Classics edition)
  • You Only Live Twice (Penguin Modern Classics edition)

  • And finally, these two aren't listed yet but will be one day:

  • Doctor Who Empress of the Racnoss action figure
  • Se7en (2-disc Special Edition)

  • And that's all for now!
