Loved the film. Talk about suspension of belief. Even my aged palette was satisfied, Felt transported to a galaxy far far away. And a time that seemed passed away. 1977 all over again.
Best part of the evening was watching my pal Joseph dragged upfront to lead a chorus of the John Williams Star Wars theme. There he was waving his arms and singing away like a returned Prince Of Wallachia as the audience tunelessly did their best.The Son Of The dragon himself.
You can see Vader himself lurking about in the background of this photo. Force chomping on a sweet and sour spider.Even Dark Lords Of The Sith have a sweet tooth it seems.
Picked this issue of Doctor Who Eleven Issue Eleven. The one with a variant cover drawn by Steve Dillon. Of his own character and creation Abslom Daak. A small but poignant reminder of the great loss of Steve Dillon. That wonderful artist, that wonderful man. It is not that long ago that Si Spurrier reintroduced the feared Dalek killer to the Doctor Who multiverse continuity and it all seemed so well timed with Steve enjoying a new burst of creativity and a welcoming and growing respect for an artist who never let his fans down.
And a man who never let his friends down.
With a Prometheus sequel in the works and bits and bobs popping up on line, a production sketch here, a set photo there, a bonkers rumour everywhere, I went looking for my idea for a new direction involving the David androids in one of my old sketch books. In my version the android becomes a Ryan Android, a Ryan Kwanten android. for if you are seeking perfection in form and an almost Michealangelo level of beauty then surely look no further than the sexiest Australian on the planet.
Imagine him in his space speedos wrestling a big Promethean engineers in a loin cloth...
I know I am.

Now that really was a season to be jolly.
For instance Paralysed by The Lone Stardust Cowboy..
It almost finished us both off. Listen to it sometime. But be careful.
Its a killing tune.
What A Doctor!
