Twink "Supercute" cover


Looks like it'll be a fun, mellow time in the warren tonight. ^_^ Another old Uni friend's down for a few days, so we're enjoying chilling out with a motley assortment of vodka, gin, triple sec et al, with a view to plenty of Long Island Iced Teas and dangerously smooth fruity cocktails, plus various bits playing off the main server, starting with three episodes of The Expanse, a SyFy production set on Ceres, now a major trading hub, rather reliant on Earth and Mars for survival, if not much more than that. All is going as normal, until an ice freighter receives a distress call from a disabled ship, which goes about as badly as could be, bringing Mars and Earth within a hair of war.

I did, unfortunately, also experience Pixels - its origins as a short were quite evident, padded out with obnoxious lead characters who nonetheless all Got The Girl. Nicely produced effects work, at least, and a surprisingly good soundtrack, ironically from the same guy responsible for Wreck-It Ralph's music.

Hmm.. I've come out of the bath to "Wildcats" playing, starring Goldie Hawn.. we shall see. ^_^;
