This is just a testcto see if a post in Dreamwidth that's cross-posted to LiveJournal will show up in Facebook.

Easing Off
laura_seabrook
Need to ease off using Facebook for a while. Every so often it gets to me, and that's no good. So, I've set up an RSS feed from this (Dreamwidth) account that will post to my Facebook account. That means I can still comment on things, but I'll be using Dreamwidth/Live Journal, which I'm much more comfortable with.

Bookend
laura_seabrook
Just saw the Time of the Doctor.

It was enjoyable, tied up some loose ends, and was an OK bookend to the 11th. Shall be interested in seeing where they take the next season. There's no way I'm going to tell you anything about the plot - SPOILERS!


However, am annoyed at the ABC for compressing the credits to the bottom half of the screen with an image and voice-over advert for NEW YEARS. - booooo (iView will have no such annoyance)!

Bxing Day Film
laura_seabrook
Saw the Desolation of Smaug earlier today as my "Boxing Day Film". I enjoyed it reasonably well, though a good 60% seems to be "added content". Because of public holiday timetables, I got to Glendale about 90 minutes before the start of the film (with nothing open there other than the cinema and Hungry Jacks).

Anyway the film seems competent enough, but it looks "different from the first Hobbit film. To me, the 3D elements of the previous film seemed to imbue an "inner glow" to the landscape - in this film the daytime scenes look a lot like over-exposed video. But that said, everything is seamless and - though I really wasn't looking - everything seems very real. I was surprised to see Sir Stephen Fry and Benedict Cumberbatch in the film, and that Andy Serkis was a Second Unit Director on it. I rather think that Peter Jackson do do some of the stories set in Ankh-Morpork as well because Lake-town just made me think of that all the time (especially Stephen Fry's character) - he'd do a better joke than the overdone badly timed efforts that pass as Terry Pratchett adaptations so far).

But it was certainly nice to see Bilbo and the Dwarves get into and out of trouble again. You'll need to see the next film however.

Two illustrations
laura_seabrook
I was able to get 18 pages complete today - they all needed spot illos done. Here's two page illustrations from the current chapter of Real Life Trips.

Piling up
laura_seabrook
Things are piling up. I actually have another 12 pages of Chapter 3 of Real Life Trips that only need spot illos but it's been too hot to draw, and I abandoned the housework yesterday for the same reason. Off to a Christmas lunch at KIng Edward Park. This is better this year because it's NOT on a Sunday, but I don't dare try and take either of the dogs out with me - 34 today in Newcastle @ 50%.
