I kickstarted these new episodes a while back and I’m really looking forward to them, but I’m expecting to only watch them when I’ve got through the entire existing set of episodes. Only then will I watch the new ones. I want to get it done in order you know.
Anyway, the picture above was on the Christmas email from the project. It looks pretty cool. I can’t wait to see what they’ve done.
I had one of these years ago. In fact, I had a number of these. But one that was very like this one. I think it was the Ferguson that was almost identical to this. It was excellent. Ok, not excellent, but really good for its time. I used it to record all sorts of things and amassed a huge cassette collection, and have very little of it left.
Even so, now I have a nice tin. I’ve decided to use it for field recording accessories. That seems like an appropriate use for it.
I also got the accessory kit for the h2n. It really is a bag of goodies, with a hard case, remote, tripod, handle, AC adapter and more. I think it is actually a little bit of a necessity really. Especially the hard case.
I’ve wanted a dedicated field recorder for ages, and this year I got one for Christmas. A lovely Zoom h2n. It is excellent and just the right size. I’ve just started to use it, but I can see a lot more field recording happening soon!
Always loved Thunderbirds as a kid, can’t stop now. I’m sure I’ve seen all the original episodes, but, as I’ve kickstarted the new 3 episodes coming next month, I wanted to have a complete set. Now I do. Now I’m going to watch the lot!
I am a big fan of Planet of the Apes, in all its iterations. My favourite being the original films dating from 1968 to 1973. This is the TV series which came out in 1974 and ran for 14 episodes. I remember seeing it on TV, although I’m guessing that was reruns. Of course, after that was the Tim Burton remake in 2001 and more recently the two movies, “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”, and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”, both of which I’ve thought were well made and good interpretations of the story.
I’m enjoying watching these again and seeing how the makers were trying to create a nice long running season of episodes, but sadly only got 14 out.
I’m going to be interested to see what the next film in the current series does. It is meant to come out in 2017. I’m hoping that they’ll do more than just the next one, that they’ll take the story into a new direction too. Let’s see.
This is a brilliant film. One of the best in my opinion. I love it, and at last it’s great to own a copy. I remember seeing it at the National Film Theatre (now the BFI), years ago and thinking that I really should get a copy. Now I have.
If you haven’t seen it, then I strongly suggest you give it a look.
Hello on the 27th of December. Christmas is gone and now it’s time to look at a few presents and see what interesting stuff I’ve got to keep me occupied over the coming weeks! Expect a few posts and thoughts today and tomorrow.
