Doctor Who - New Who teaser titles


I'm not in the habit of going to conventions abroad (Sarah's attempt to persuade me to BotCon notwithstanding), but I've got to be honest, the fact that Phil Collinson and Toby Hadoke will be at next February's Gallifrey One does make it kind of tempting...
Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop


Obligatory The Stolen Earth musings and Journey's End speculation. To keep me busy until Saturday.

So, my thoughts and random shpiel. I think the only way I'm going to get through the next five days is to watch The Stolen Earth on a regular basis...

Coupling - Stuck in the Giggle Loop

Musical musing

My latest "big thing" - as I've alluded to briefly hereabouts - is converting my collection of 7" singles to mp3 format (or occasionally, cheating it).

I recently did my two Linda Ronstadt singles (Somewhere Out There and Don't Know Much.

Much as I love the singles themselves (don't mock), the b-sides are pretty much unexplored territory for me. So I was rather pleasantly surprised listening to Don't Know Much's b-side, Hurt So Bad (originally from Linda's 1979 album Mad Love), because it sounds very much like early Laura Branigan (and in my opinion, early Laura Branigan is a very good thing to sound like).

Really rather a good little song.
