Viper Squad Ten
We're from the future. And we're stuck....
......VSX......                                                                                                              ......Been a little bit quiet lately......                                                                                                                                                                    

VSX, A shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist: Starbuck Powersurge - a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of Viper Squad Ten, a long-disbanded group of stranded timetravelling troubadours, formed to help finance repairs to their time-machine. Now very much stuck in C21...

Sometimes guest editors: Mr Stu and DJ Tim.

Faux Pas
Starbuck [20:20] Comments: 4 []
Due to a continued state of time-paucity, I'm not being a good blogger at present. Boo!

But I need to keep the motor running before heading out on the highway, and as a result, I'm going to have to resort to one of my quicky not-so-witty bliposts. Yay! So here goes.

I sometimes think that my wife must be a lot more liberated than I.

Just the other day, after she'd finished cutting my hair in the kitchen, she said to me thus:

"Before you have your shower, you should go on outside and shake yourself off"

Well, I might think of myself as open-minded, but still, I really don't think the neighbours need to witness such acts.

Back before the stench of latent xenophobia bubbled to the surface...

Etch-a-sketch of Celeb BB
Obviously this was composed before Donny Tourette and Ken Russell walked out.

No doubt the music on this CD cannot be used on the soundtrack to hirsute pornography.

Do you see? Ho ho. Ho ho ho ho ho ho ho ho.

Torchwood Finale
Starbuck [18:12] Comments: 0 []
[The following post has been published using a small Font size so as not to alienate the less nerdy amongst you who may want to skip down to Stu's Music Round Up (nothing nerdy about that!). That said, you're reading a blog called "Viper Squad Ten" in the first place, so there's got to be something wrong with you...]

OK, so I'd long guessed what the nature of that "something moving in the darkness" which was coming for Jack would be. The "bad wolf" and "Torchwood" references seeded through the last 2 series of Doctor Who had quite sensitised me towards the writers' not-so-devious games; throw in the whole psychic suggestion thing from the Satan Pit, and voila, a SPOILER.

But as for the explanation for Jack's Comedy Hand In A Jar - of course! After recently re-viewing last year's Who Christmas Special, I can't believe I didn't see that one coming...

Torchwood has had its critics, but in spite of its inherent crackers silliness, or perhaps because of it, its been one of the most enjoyable British shows for a long time, and it just goes to show how po-faced so much drama (sci-fi or otherwise) tends to be. But I would say that, being a man with a (1) a TARDIS materialising SMS alert tone (2) a TARDIS keyring (3) a Dalek bottle opener (4) a Dalek birthday cake [digested].

And I'd say I'm actually looking forward to the next series of this spin-off series more than its progenitor - praise indeed for an old Who nerd like me!

My only fear, what with Torchwood, the incoming Sarah Jane Adventures and much of the new Doctor Who being set very much in our present times, is that monster fatigue will quickly begin to set in. When something extraordinary becomes the norm in a fictional world, it becomes harded to empathise with the wonder of experiencing that fiction.

Stu's Music Round Up
Stuart [10:37] Comments: 3 []
Hey I thought I would get in first with my top tens and fives and wotnot.

Before I do so, I will do my Christmas TV round up. Very easy as I only saw one festive programme - Dracula. It was TERRIBLE!!!! Why take one of the finest scariest stories ever and change it completely AND keep the names from the book? It was an insult, particularly in the way by which they effectively neutered Dracula by making him not very clever or powerful at all. Rubbish.

Okay, rant over - here goes....
