Poop. Orbital are finishing up for good in June; the "Blue" album is released, they have fun at Glastonbury, et c'est finis. Still, it seems the brothers will be continuing on separate projects, so it's not really a retirement as such.

Finally: Bubba Ho-Tep comes to DVD on May 25th. I want to see this.

Looking over the summary of the HHGTTG movie, and perusing the actors' links, I'm growing more confident that they might wind up with a good film. In every case, I can look at the headshot, and imagine them well in their role. Also, there's an interview with the directors, worth a peek.

Mmmm.

Poop. <a href="http://www.aversion.com/news/news_article.cfm?news_id=2327">Orbital are finishing up for good in June</a>; the "Blue" album is released, they have fun at Glastonbury, et c'est finis.

Looking over the <a href="http://www.douglasadams.com/movie/">summary of the HHGTTG movie</a>, and perusing the actors' links, I'm growing more confident that they might wind up with a <i>good film</i>. In every case, I can look at the headshot, and imagine them well in their role. Also, there's an <a href="http://homepage.ntlworld.com/mjs2000/nickgarth1.htm">interview with the directors</a>, worth a peek.

Mmmm. <a href="http://www.chapter.org/>The Chapter</a> will beholding their annual <a href="http://www.chapter.org/dsp_cinema_detail.cfm?ShowID=2175">Maifest on May 20-22nd</a> (Thu-Sat). If last year's was anything to go by, it'll be a superb opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of German beers as freshly as possible, without any bottling or canning in the way. Don't suppose anybody would be interested in coming along, would they? It's easily reached from the Cardiff Central bus and train stations - or an easy 25 min walk, and there's far from a shortage of places to stay, ranging from bed-and-colorful-TV cheapies around £20, through Ibis and The Big Sleep, to positively plush (albeit, regrettably, not in the cuddly sense) hotels.

And if you know of the furry comic <i>Omaha the Cat-Dancer</i>, you may want to read <a href="http://www.livejournal.com/~doodlesthegreat/61510.html">this entry</a>, compiled by <lj user="doodlesthegreat">, with both good and unpleasant news.

Just a thought: do any LJ clients (for OS X particularly) support offline compositiong and queueing? It'd be handy sometimes if I were able to create a reply to a comment while on the move, and then, as with a mail client, have it automagically submit them all.

Finally, for something a little different, enjoy this <a href="http://www.sambakza.net/amalloc/animation/movie_folder/ddautta_mask_(550x281).zip">1.9MB Flash animation</a> from Korea, on the subject of a lovestruck rabbit who falls for a rather reluctant cat. ^_^

Ooh, nifty.. that does look quite nice, use of drawer notwithstanding (not my favorite UI element, it has to be said). Downloading now. ^_^ Eep! What's this about requiring Safari to be installed? Is the author referring to WebCore? Oh well, I'll find out soon enough.. (I have it, but I'm much more fond of OW5, though beta 5 has seemingly reintroduced the b1 bug of "waiting for available connection" pausing page loading, plus being a bit hefty on poor lil' Bunny)


Thanks for the cool links!

Sorry to hear Orbital is calling it quits, but they've had a really good run. Over 16 years of symphonic techno!

Delighted to read about the Hitchhiker's movie. I never really pictured Marvin as being short.
I always pictured him as a tall, lanky, slow, depressed android with red triangular eyes.
The movie version is rather cute and SD.

Oh well, we shall see!



"And when you see your mother this weekend, tell her...
SATAN-SATAN-SATAN-SATAN-SATAN-SATAN-SATAN-SATAN!!!!"


Yep, Orbital have really made their mark, no question. I hope they'll keep themselves busy. (As a sidenote, I finally got to see their video for their reworking of The Saint.. *grin* Very, very silly) Their set at Glastonbury's going to be positively mobbed - well, as far as anyone there can be said to be so. Maybe Mr Eavis needs to adopt the Disaster Area scheme of audio distribution?

Having read through that interview with the directors, I'm really quite pleased - they do seem to know what they're dealing with, and they're certainly come up with some neat works of their own. As long as the dreaded Focus Groups of Doom don't descend, we may well end up with something really funny and thoughtful.. !

Ahhh, foo! Now I'm missing my Orbital CDs, victims of one of the moves.. I do still have some, thankfully - Snivilisation ("I Wish I Had Duck Feet"), and the deservedly renowned In Sides, plus the Altogether DVD. (In genuine 5.1 audio, FWIW, not just a dump of the CD stereo, even if I can't presently appreciate it)
I've never heard of Bubba Ho-Tep, but it looks intriguing. Ossie Davis: it has to be good.

Warwick Davis in his lil Marvin suit looks so adorable... Then it speaks.

That movie is well cute! ^.^

*hug*
The trailer is worth a look, if you've not yet seen it.. it does help explain my enthusiasm. Or maybe I'm just strange. Not that the two need be exclusive.

Later in that HHGTTG thread, someone noted that the voice of the Book hasn't yet been cast. That'll be a tricky one, even moreso than any of the other roles, as Peter Jones is so tied into the role; that's an announcement I'll be looking forward to.
That is well funny!
"That's where they took a piece of my brain. I got a little bag of sand up there now!"
"Jack, President Kennedy was a white man."
"They dyed me this colour!" LOL! I have to see it!

Some ideas for the voice of the book: Peter O'Toole, Terry Wogan (Oh Terry Wogan, how I adore thee), Robbie Coltrane, to start with. Otherwise it's Jonathan Ross - and that might not go over so well overseas. Come to think of it, it might not fly so well here! :D
I want to see this.

I want to see this again. And (quite possibly) again, again. Heap good flick.

You know, at some point, I really should get around to watching it, ne? ^_^;
