Big Finish: Gallifrey

I mentioned that I was going to try out some of the spin off series from Big Finish. I’ve listened to the first episode of this, and it isn’t bad. Lalla Ward and Louise Jameson don’t do a bad job of carrying this story very well.

Quite enjoyable really. I’ll seriously consider getting the next one, in a while anyway.

Trying out some new things from Big Finish

I can’t help but enjoy listening to Big Finish’s releases. I’ve been listening to and enjoying the 8th Doctor releases, and more recently I’ve been listening to the 4th Doctor stories too. So I thought it would be interesting to have a try at listening to some of the other series that they publish.

So I decided to buy the first episode of a number of the spin off series. Here’s what I bought:

  • Gallifrey
  • Cyberman
  • I, Davros
  • Dalek Empire

I’m going to give them a go and see if any of them are worth going further with.

Romo from the desktop

I’ve been using the Romo desktop Mac OSX app as well recently, and it’s really good. It’s very useful to be able to use the arrow keys to steer with, almost better than the virtual joystick. The only downside  is that there’s no way to record video from it. Even so, it’s good to have another way to control Romo.

Looking forward to Field Day

I’m off to the Field Day festival for the day on Saturday. Most of all I’m looking forward to seeing Fennesz and Laurel Halo, but I’m also quite open to whatever else I might hear. It’s quite nice to go along to events like this one and just seeing some new music and having a nice day out.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Romo returns!

It has been just over a week since I sent my Romo off to Germany to have his main board’s firmware updated to work with an EU smartphone. He’s back, and he works just fine now. In fact, he seems to be as good as new.

After all this time it’s great to be playing around with my Romo and enjoying such a clever idea. Now I want more from my Romo apps already!

Bill Shatner on have I got news for you

What an enormously enjoyable show. I haven’t laughed so much in ages and ages. He was completely awesome, most especially when he sang songs from his new album, although perhaps sung is the wrong word. My favourite of course being his rendition of the sex pistols ‘God Save the Queen’.
