2012-10-10 Digital Breadcrumbs

  • @mrjameshancox Is it entertaining the dead Norse troops in the halls of Valhalla? (Tough room, if so.) @Abandoman #
  • @Eat_Solent Uh… I want to win £100. Is this open to staff? #
  • @samwisemoss @lindsayjordan is alright, int she? #
  • @sarahditum I'm guessing idiots who expose themselves intimately on podcasts that are supposed to be about comics don't count. #
  • @sarahditum Well then FINE. I didn't care about your stupid validation of my lack of boundaries ANYWAY. *In corner, not crying* #
  • Here come 3 things I have done/been involved with recently. You may enjoy them. If you do enjoy them, could you share them? That'd be swell! #
  • Thing: #MOMBcast 156 went up last Thursday. We overshared, talked comics & spotlighted @JeffLemire's Underwater Welder. http://t.co/Jyfxxeq8 #
  • Thing: My Elephant Words story from last week was called "A Body Of Work", & is gross & near-factual: http://t.co/1CXguV4t #
  • Thing: As sort-of requested, I blogged about gardening today: Resignation Fuelled Gardening – Ripening Indoors: http://t.co/vSMGUzAb #
  • I'm going on the assumption that that Die Hard trailer is just really badly cut together, because, well, it looks really clunky. #
  • …One thing even the least of the Die Hard movies isn't guilty of is clunky, chunky editing. #
  • Anyone get that thing where you catch yourself grinding your teeth & realise you should stop but oddly that doesn't make it easier to stop? #
  • @sispurrier Normal People are ruining everything! Whether restaurant staff are friendly is LITERALLY THE LEAST important thing about them… #
  • @sispurrier Number ONE on the list is whether or not they are feeling compelled to urinate and/or cum into your food. #
  • @sispurrier Number two is probably whether or not the food is good and/or timely and/or what you ordered and/or not poisonous. #
  • @sispurrier Jizz as a condiment DEFINITELY top of the list, though. Friendliness WAY DOWN THERE. Competent better than nice. #
  • @sispurrier Well, @TinyMaster is allowed to think that. A little delusion is healthy in a human. Gets us through the day. #
  • @Pytyr2011 At least with breathing your body knows that it can just shut you down & do it for you if you get dumb enough, I guess? #
  • @mnky It's STUPID. My teeth are a limited item, I should be able to stop reducing them. #
  • @sarahditum Oh god, & when you're reading them from a comprehensive enough source, they get steadily more baroque & nightmarish… #
  • @sarahditum …Ugly Duckling has bunch of extra "adventures" the duckling goes through which seem to add nothing but futile horror to it. #
  • @sarahditum Not new observation, but all enduring kids stories are brutal & transformative. The way we treat kids rest of the time is daft! #
  • @TinyMaster Isn't best thing about being tiny that YOU can fit inside your suitcase? A work colleague is so tiny she can fit in a rucksack. #
  • @TinyMaster NB My work colleague is not so tiny that she can fit in a rucksack. I got carried away, sorry. #
  • @mnky OH SHIT I'm doing it now, again! #
  • @McKelvie here are you a trending topic? I don't really understand Twitter. #
  • @McKelvie "Where" not "here". For fuck's sake. #
  • Something a friend & I have been working away on in the background for a while is becoming something real in a way I'm quite chuffed with. #
  • @happymrlocust First time? #
  • @happymrlocust I liked it, but it is basically Liam Neeson keeps punching Paris til it gives him his daughter back. #
  • @happymrlocust Also, as someone else recently put it, "it's basically an adult Finding Nemo". #
  • @AcmeDarryl Not at all! #
  • @NathanDitum Ooh, despite liking it we never got that far into first series. Is it Jack Whitehall giving you the clench? #
  • @NathanDitum Bit of turning point for me with Whitehall. Never minded him, but wasn't always clear how much of his comedy is at own expense. #
  • @WarwickJC Oh. My. God. Couldn't happen to a nicer, more talented mofo! #
  • @NathanDitum Fucking hell, man, this isn't the fall of Rome! What were you thinking? @Nixemus #
  • Wow, Danno is a real Ameri-can't, huh? http://t.co/OjySAKnz #GetGlue @HawaiiFive0CBS #
  • @NathanDitum People like you are REAL reason I hardly ever play multiplayer… Too much pressure to not be shit. I'm pretty shit. @Nixemus #
  • @emslj Hah, aww, I like Laura Marling, tho am given to understand that is not that cool. Don't know Ella Goulding. #
  • Tank Girl & @WarwickJC are perfect fit. Inspired actually. Once Tank Girl was t-shirt fodder, Hewlett was tight, but chaos is her roots. #
  • @JMDeMatteis UNSOLICITED TWEET: If I tell you that this is actually about a particular author, can you guess who?: http://t.co/GfWENKxf #
  • @TinyMaster Just remember not to padlock yourself in… #
  • @TinyMaster#
  • @TinyMaster …Emma? #
  • @jamiesmart I did not know that. Never thought I'd say this about the man's work, but Harvey would have been the safe/conservative pick… #
  • @jamiesmart …he's absolutely amazing, but his work has become really beautifully polished in a way that seems geared toward VG work? #
  • @jamiesmart Drafted/re-drafted couple responses, each sounds like I'm making value judgments. Love both, but WJC fits MY Tank Girl more. #
  • @TinyMaster Phew! Looks like I potentially saved you some cash on travel, AND you've got airholes. #
  • @jamiesmart For me, it's perfect. Hipster as it sounds, I really remember TG as part of that early Deadline line-up with Hugo Tate et al… #
  • @jamiesmart As beautiful & distinct as Hewlett is, what Tank Girl means to me is "what the fuck is this I don't even but woah IT WORKS." #
  • @royalboiler Hah, remembered Bill, forgot about Crimson Tide. Still, I WOULD SAY: Opinions of characters are not always those of creators… #
  • @royalboiler AND ALSO Bill was kinda evil. So maybe his opinions were those of an evil person? :D #
  • @JMDeMatteis Well, it's always possible I'm misremembering, but apparently Roald Dahl used to keep such souvenirs in his writing shed. #
  • @JMDeMatteis (And thankyou! That was a pretty shameless cry for validation on my part, wasn't it?) #
  • @JMDeMatteis All I can find now are references to a few remnants of operations on his hip, but remember interview where he talked about it. #
  • @JMDeMatteis THINKING about it, it's possible that Dahl was teasing the interviewer! (Yes, I'm starting to learn that about shamelessness!) #
  • About to revisit a few self-promoting tweets from earlier on. If you've seen them already, please ignore. If you enjoy them, please share! #
  • Thing: #MOMBcast 156 went up last Thursday. We overshared, talked comics & spotlighted @JeffLemire's Underwater Welder. http://t.co/Jyfxxeq8 #
  • Thing: My Elephant Words story from last week was called "A Body Of Work", & is gross & near-factual: http://t.co/1CXguV4t #
  • Thing: As sort-of requested, I blogged about gardening today: Resignation Fuelled Gardening – Ripening Indoors: http://t.co/vSMGUzAb #
  • @andromedababe Vague memory that you suggested I blog about garden back in spring? Finally did so, at end of season!: http://t.co/vSMGUzAb #
  • @JMDeMatteis I know, it really should, shouldn't it? Oddly perfect. Just learned that he was a spy before being a writer. Also inventor. #
  • http://t.co/sFsSmwOx – Screenwriter Jon Spaihts On The Prometheus That Never Was #
  • @Sulman Hah! It's interesting to see where the elements that worked & didn't work for me came from. Complete lack of jizz an OUTRAGE, tho. #
  • @Pytyr2011 Think they USED to let you keep more. Glad you liked it! #

2012-10-09 Digital Breadcrumbs

  • Because wow. #
  • @sarahditum Also haven't watched Girls but liked that post a lot. Reasonable tone, great final points. #
  • @sarahditum Mind, I've said it before, but personally I find characters that are there to fulfil demographic far more distracting. #
  • @emslj Agreed. #
  • @johnwarrender I just read Harpoon as Tampon for no apparent reason. #
  • One thing I feel we never really did get to the bottom of is WHY exactly did Freddie Mercury kill that man, execution style? #
  • …Was it just to watch him die? #
  • @steevbishop I… what's a lebkuchen? Is it… what it sounds like? #
  • Just identified which song @samwisemoss was singing based on 5 word excerpt. The song was Reproduction from Grease 2. Am unsure how to feel. #
  • @akirathedon I thought it was a stronger finale than much of previous season deserved, but that final epilogue was a bit heavy-handed. #
  • @kierongillen Oooh, XCOM. I think I'd forgotten that that franchise was on it's way back. #
  • @ecbt2000ad Tripitaka made me feel pretty weird when watching the show as a kid, anyway. Pic of her in bikini may sort me out. @pauljholden #
  • @ecbt2000ad Hah… well… uh… maybe I should reword that? Or… I meant psychologically, but either way works. @pauljholden #
  • Having never watched Girls, whenever people start complaining about the diversity in it, I get the urge to re-watch The L Word. #
  • @jamiesmart THIS SOUNDS EXCITE! #
  • Drive was ok. Perfect within narrow parameters. Style/ambiguity standing in for actual depth but ultimately just 80s-style man-in-blackness. #
  • …now settling in for the return of Homeland. #
  • @thegrampus It's very likeable. Great cast, all working hard to act minimally, camera out-acting all of them. It's fun to watch. #
  • @camfots I think I'm super glad that I've had a bit of time to mellow out a bit before watching it. #
  • @thegrampus It's very sexy, a killer pout, a wink, & a suggestion of more going on behind it's eyes than an hour of conversation confirms. #
  • @thegrampus …so I'm not surprised it seduced you, you cinematic slut. #
  • @camfots Hah, I meant I'm glad I didn't watch it in the midst of all the handjobs the movie was getting backwhen. #

  • @NathanDitum MC1 WAY more plausible than I'd expected to see. I thought it LOOKED less but FELT more like the comics than earlier movie. #
  • One of the pros on Strictly just said she'd be happy to finish it off for her celeb partner. I SNARFED. #
  • Whole fuss about misandry is silly. It IS a thing, but not as big a deal as misogyny, because we men are supposed to have thicker skins. #
  • That might be one of those times when being more arch than funny may cause me some problems. #
  • @AFMJen Yeah! Although to be honest I'd been kind of worried about her character since we last saw her. #
  • @Sulman Very difficult, but always satisfying. #
  • @johnwarrender Glib is important! Only thing humans all have in common is how ridiculous we are! #
  • @Sulman But DID IT WORK? @rhodri #
  • @Sulman Did your research into it ever come to anything? #
  • @LeeRevDouglas I've lost track! More likely, in my case, misanthropic. #
  • @Sulman Oh! I assumed that was just something that HAPPENED. It was science? #
  • @LeeRevDouglas I guess it depends on whether you think thick skin is a good or bad thing. :) #
  • @LeeRevDouglas Generalisations are always a good thing. #
  • @Sulman I think the perfect relationship is one of the more dangerous things they're working on at CERN. #
  • @Jody_Houser That outfit looks, & the party sounds, brilliant! #
  • Hm. Never noticed it before, but the font they've used for the Burn Notice logo makes it look suspiciously like Bum Notice. #
  • @grthdvd "mistakenly" indeed. #
  • @Sulman I don't see how rope is going to help us get rid of all the foreigners. #
  • @emslj Seriously, the Rockstone isn't a grubby shithole any more? @Sulman @davenorcott #
  • @emslj @Sulman only likes the pubs in Portswood where he can hang with prostitutes and their pumps. #
  • @nixsight Lol pumps. @emslj @Sulman #
  • @emslj It's at the bottom of a nice enough road, an aberration in Bevois Valley. @Sulman #
