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.
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:
- I, Davros
- Dalek Empire
I’m going to give them a go and see if any of them are worth going further with.
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.
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.
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!
Some shots from another great Blancmange gig on Friday. Really enjoyed it.
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’.
In case you don’t see it, and assuming you’re interested, there’s another post over at Palm Sounds today.
I’d heard of this stuff before, but I’d never used it. I got this sample from the lovely people at Technology Will Save Us when I went to their talk the other day. The sugru web site has some really good examples of how people have used the stuff.
So the only question remaining is, what should I use it for?
Is it useful? Yes, probably, but maybe not too much for me at the moment, but it is just one of those things I really wanted to have, and it is so cool!
