Another act from last weekend’s trip to Under the Bridge. Whilst it was just him and the Bad Manners backing band it was still good and he did loads of the classic from the late 70’s and early 80’s that everyone wanted to hear.

Terra nova

I fancied watching this sci-fi series even though it only got one season before being cancelled. I didn’t think it was too bad at all really. In fact I quite enjoyed it. I’m sure I’ve seen far worse things get a second season, but this didn’t. I don’t think it was the cast or even the story line. It certainly wasn’t the special effects as they were quite good really. It just didn’t make it.

It reminded me of the UK sci-fi series Outcasts, which was on BBC1 a few years ago. That had a lot of potential and yet didn’t get the second series. Not sure why again. Although with the BBC they seem to be very nervous about anything that isn’t an overnight success. Science fiction rarely works like that, so the BBC have no stomach for it. That’s a shame, but there you go. They’ve even managed to ruin Doctor Who, but that’s a whole different debate.

Anyway, I thought Terra Nova was ok. A shame not to see how it turned out in the end.

Watching Stargate, the whole way through

I decided that I wanted to watch the whole of Stargate SG-1, every episode. There are in fact 213 episodes of Stargate SG-1 and I’ve now watched them all. All in order, and I’m glad I did. It was really enjoyable, and, for the most part the series was good. I even watched the TV movie that followed.

I’m considering watching Stargate Atlantis now. That’s a mere 100 episodes!

SoundLab has been included in the NESTA predictions for 2016.

I was really pleased to see even a small mention of SoundLab in NESTA’s predictions for 2016. I think it should be a big part of what happens next year, and I hope that it’ll be a big part of what I do next year anyway. Their top 10 is in effect a series of topic areas, audio or sound being one. Inside of that they’ve got a series of things they mention. In a way it isn’t strictly speaking a prediction, or at least not as I’d recognise anyway.

Even so, SoundLab is in there and I’m pleased to see it there, especially after the event we delivered for them last month.

If you’re interested in reading about their predictions, you can find them here.
