What the Wicked Witch Watched and Other Whimsies
This is the first of a new series of monthly updates that replaces my old Star Selections and also the book posts. I plan to use these to help compose the Coven Awards, as I never remember what I've watched during the year when I scrabble around on the 29th December desperately putting together a years worth of crap!
I was going to post this in a couple of days, but Tim's disgust at my little pun in the last post has made me want to move on. Quickly.
So, anyway, here's the post proper:
I probably won't create a magazine cover every month like this one. I only did this because I was inspired by Ask The Cool Cookie's handiwork, after MJ pointed out his other blog recently.
They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so, I'm sorry for this travesty, Cookie! It's no imitation at all - Not a convincing one, anyway - but, still, I hope you're flattered, all the same.
For those that have even the slightest interest, here are some links to my month's viewings, readables and audible pleasures - The ones worth blogging about, anyway:
TV - Being Human, Episodes*, No Ordinary family, Primeval
Books - Star Trek Typhon Pact: Zero Sum Game, by David Mack, USS Enterprise Owners' Workshop Manual, from Haynes
Music - Blade Runner Trilogy, 25th Anniversary, by Vangelis
* Not actually sci-fi, but I'm watching it all the same.
