“News” you all heard days ago
Hello. Roundup time again round here, I’m afraid. I’m off to Edinburgh for a week starting from tomorrow, but expect an announcement about this place extremely soon after that. Unfortunately, I still appear to be under the illusion that anyone cares.
CRAIG ARRESTED: Yeah, you all know. I’m just mentioning it now so people don’t think we’re avoiding the issue. There’s not a huge amount more to say, apart from let’s hope he still makes it to DJ. And I have a very funny joke here that I’d like to do, but I don’t DARE.
BEAT THE GEEK MENUS: Excellent! I could go on about how gorgeous the menus are (and you know you’re pathetically geeky when you realise that you’re genuinely excited about seeing new angles on the existing DVD menu sets…) – and the “unrendering” and zooming round the ship sound fantastic. Unfortunately, I then saw the questions and shat my pants. The first two are OK, but if the last two are any indication of difficulty, then I may need to buy several copies to replace the discs I fling out the window. You BASTARD, Ellard.
BACK IN BUSINESS: A trailer has been released for Chris Barrie’s new film, as TOS reports. It’s impossible to tell what the actual film is like, as the trailer seems to have been edited by a certain Colin Hunt. Will trailer people please realise that humorous captions have never actually been funny?
I’m extremely excited about Brian Blessed, though.
MASSIVE ENGINES DVD: Here! Due to be released 25th September. I’m extremely surprised this has got a release, actually – and I wonder whether the presence of Chris Barrie means that they’re banking on the Red Dwarf geek market to make it worthwhile. Still, it’s a great show, and worthy of a release.
And that’s your lot. Sorry. My guilt chips is already in overdrive – I-I feel terrible…
