An Open Letter to the Editor
Happy New Year one and all, and specifically to my illustrious leader, who has (whether by act or omission) granted me continued sub-posty-person status into 2006. And regretful belated happy birthdays to him too. He remembered mine, I didn't (quite) remember his. At least not when I should have done.
So, 2006 eh? New house for him, hopefully new house for me. Certainly a year of big change, but more on that nearer the time.
Anyway, Mr Powersurge, the nation (i.e. me) awaits full lists and reviews of what you actually received in the musicy filmy arena for Christmas. I know what you asked for not what you got.
I have just spotted your reference to Hyperdrive. Don't go down that road. Sci fi comedy (at least on TV*) (at least live action anyway**) is the last safe place for beard-growing single middle aged teachers (probably) who are too embarassed to go to comic conventions anymore. Sci fi comedy is the geekiest of the geek. Geekiness in its place is obviously brilliant, but sci fi comedy = Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy (funny when you're 14, not any older), Red Dwarf (words cannot describe my hatred). Sci fi comedy is BAD. i haven't seen Hyperdrive but that's not going to stop me hating it. WRONG.
