Been a while since I wrote anything non book related. I am still reading daily but needed to flex my blogging muscles about something else for a bit of change of pace. I also get to waffle a bit more here than on the website.
Out of the new info that has been released at SDCC I am starting to get just a little bit excited about all the superhero films that are in development. I still have everything crossed that the Green Lantern will rock my socks. In my opinion if Whedon can get it right The Avengers will be a fanboy’s wet dream. Thor looks suitably shouty (still missing The Blessed but we cant have everything).
Mrs Cheesecake is wetting herself about Tron Legacy. I’ve seen the new footage and I have to agree.
Wasn’t Sherlock Holmes absolutely kick ass! The chemistry between Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman was just great. Some people have accused Mark Gatiss of being to hammy as Mycroft but personally I thought he managed to make him appear just the right side of eccentric.
It’s brilliant programming like this that proves how top-notch Aunty Beeb can be. I tell you what the current government better leave well enough alone.
While we’re on the subject of TV I have to admit another growing excitement. I follow George R. R. Martin’s blog and I have heard nothing but good things when it comes to the casting for A Game of Thrones. Sean Bean and now today Charles Dance. Epic stuff. I will read the books before the show starts I promise.
Fantasy Con 2010
Not long to go until Fantasy Con. Mrs Cheesecake and I are attending the full Con this year. Looking forward to it. Last year we just managed the Saturday but this year we have planned a bit better. If your attending please do say hello. Can’t miss me 6ft 2, bright red hair, goatee beard and slightly maniacal look in my eye. As a disclaimer I am a lot less frightening once you get to know me. Mrs Cheesecake however is a nutter. It’s ok I told her I was going to write that.
A fat man cycles
At the beginning of the year I set myself a challenge. Cycle 500KM in 2010. This weekend I hit another milestone,the 300KM mark. Why the lunacy you may ask? Two reasons really. I’ve never been very good at finishing things. I thought if I set myself a grand epic task I could prove to myself I could accomplish something for once. Secondly ever since I broke my back I have not been able to exercise as much as I used to so. So far so good. I have a horrible feeling if I do manage this I’m going to have to increase the distance for next year. Oh dear.
Till next time
