  1. Whittle!
    Aww I loved listening to that! It is the podcast of my dreams! Firstly: the recording is wonderful! I do love a podcast that doesn't sound like a dodgy Skype conversation ^-^
    Secondly: where is this picture of Captain Hook fitty mcfitson you promised us in the blog post?
    Thirdly: It's perfectly timed because I so need a new book and also you have made me jazzed about picking my knitting back up! It's cold and dark outside and that is perfect cosy knitting weather! I want to be the level you are! Knitting geeky things! I have followed you on Ravelry ^-^
    It's so lovely just to hear your stream of consciousness. I will always enjoy listening to you! I am hungry for another though, I hope you make more! :)

  2. I hope you didn't find doing that too weird cos I for one (or 2,after bintykins) am definitely looking forward to more.

    It's funny that you got onto Rivers of London after tweeting for recs because if I remember rightly it was yourself offering up Felix Cator on the twitters that got me reading that. Or was it on the 2000ad board? Either way I have you to thank for some awesome books, even if I'm not *quite* as invested in Felix himselfas you apparently are. :)

    Your daughters love of all things Doctor Who is very cute, and a testament to your awesome parentage. It's even winning me back around after the terrible bitterness I've held over one of them knowing way more answers than me in the quiz at the first CCC. Petty? Moi?

    I had absolutely no idea what you were saying in the knitting section. I perked up when I heard Discworld, but other than that...foreign language to me I'm afraid. I'm sure it was super exciting for them as what knits though :)

    Crap, I've written an essay here, I'l shut up. But yes, another vote for more. Sooner the better, if you please!

  3. Personally I'm especially partial to BBC Focus magazine, and continually toy with the idea of a subscription. But you're right, magazines are way expensive these days and also have a habit of accruing in a box, in a loft, unread, eventually getting thrown out having been discovered on three separate occasions three years apart and put back because, you know, they might come in handy one day.

    Anyway, shuddup, I'm trying to listen to the rest of the cast... :p

Robin of Sherwood.

Here we are again, another auld SFX blog. This time a review of Robin of Sherwood, from about 2010 I think. I also think after reading this I absolutely need to watch this again and soon. Sometimes shitty weather is a treat isn't it, or at the very least permission to curl up with ya knitting and your spicy tea, mmmm spicy tea and watch something delicious. And this is really delicious. For more than one reason.  It is probably on Netflix of Prime by now I would've thought. Did you love this? Did it haunt you? Sometimes unbidden, does this scrumptious face just pop into your head?

Robin of Sherwood: Nothing’s Forgotten…Nothing’s Ever Forgotten
When I was a child in the 80’s the unmissable television programme of the time was Robin of Sherwood. My overwhelming memories of the series were: Michael Praed being the most beautiful human being I had ever seen, the blond replacement being a bit rubbish and the episode with the Hounds of Lucifer being the most terrifying thing I had e…

Knitting and Spinning

ERRATA aka Mistakes I make in this ep!  I talk about how much I enjoyed the John Carpenter ep of FutureMan, I totally mean James Cameron. I also talk about the direction you should spin and ply and give entirely the wrong info. You do not spin and ply the same way as your fibre will be Over spun and will break. You are taking twist out not putting more in. I have not slept much recently. I think that is it but ye nah, can't guarantee it!
