    Happy new year to all us Forum Buddies. To @oochillyo @dentarthurdent @nerys @janetteB @winston @nerys @blenkinsopthebrave and many more…

    my NY reso is to work more in the garden, despite the muggy heat. I’d like to say exercise & diet but I doubt that’ll change!
    Hope we all stay safe from further Covid outbreaks and that the unnerving polit…[Read more]

    @dentarthurdent

    yes, indeed.
    and the filmic quality of those episodes are intriguing. They really are colour-rich, just drenched in sun & shadow. The Silent’s features filled with hollow spaces & crevices like the moon….

    @dentarthurdent

    yes, my smartphone IS a computer. I use the internet on it to text people, just as I would my laptop.

    I also had a very cheap push button phone (a Nokia)  from 2011. It died eventually in 2021. Texts were my main form of communication & they still are but now I can access photos or send links via my phone (which uses an email a…[Read more]

    hi there. Yes, ‘loading up’ was incorrect. I find, though, that after I click on 22 it takes a few minutes to get there. At that point, on my phone, at least, I have an awful lot of scrolling followed by it (often) going back to page 1 again.

  • syzygy replied to the topic Dr Who News (5)

    @blenkinsopthebrave yes, that sounds like a very good plan. Is it that the Doctor doesn’t really connect with Donna? That the story, involves her, but not?
    The last couple of The Doctor Donna episodes, had various people (like the Shadow Proclamation) stating, “I’m sorry for your loss.” And when Donna prodded, the younger woman reiterated, “the lo…[Read more]

    @janetteb and to you! Yes, we’re doing well. It’s hot here but we’ve had no rain & compared with the flood peaks expected today in Victoria (??), I believe, we’re very grateful. I know flood warnings came 7 days ago with expected river peaks effectively at midnight last night. Not good at all. It either never rains, and there’s fires, or it floods…[Read more]

    @nerys you have restored my memory! Yes, it was Roadkill.

    McRory was wonderful. I remember her in Northsquare. Back in ‘98, I think.

    @nerys absolutely 👍 for Hugh. His voice -whether as the bloviating House or in an English role is worth a watch. I did see him in a British political thriller 2-3 years ago which was a disappointment, imho, but more to do with the occluded story line than anything Hugh-wise. 😀

  • syzygy replied to the topic The Winchester

    Hey again @Oochillyo.
    im sorry I didn’t see your other post. You absolutely, definitely shouldn’t give up your dreams of creating art. During Covid I think we all experienced terrible loneliness so doing anything remotely crafty is a must.

    Don’t allow people to tell you you are rubbish. Beethoven was called an idiot, so was Mahler, Shost…[Read more]

    Hi @Oochillyo

    I wish I could help you! My areas are music & history. Yes, I’d like to know that too. I don’t think conservation of energy is a law, though….

    I’d add, however,  that energy in & energy out isn’t the same & doesn’t need to be, as per your 5th paragraph.
    🙂

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    @winston golly, yes, “It” scared me too. And I’m alright around clowns. You didn’t do anything wrong. These things happen.

    Thane stayed with a friend 3 years his senior so he saw the 4th Harry Potter at age 8 & spent the next YEAR yelling thru the wee hours, wanting night lights/ stair lights, when, from Year Zero he’d never had those additions…[Read more]

    @winston You are a card! (As me dear ma used to say).
    “never ask granny for a fu**ing cookie” indeed.

    yes, certain films may not be Christmas flicks, per se, but as memories with kids, it’s a great reminder. Two years ago Thane commanded: We. Are. All. Watching. Harry Potter. This. Christmas.

    I thought “all? You mean 1 film, yes?” No, it was al…[Read more]

    @janetteB -podcast sounds great. Thank you.

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Helloo my darlings…

    @janetteb @winston

    i LOVED Staged! Huge fun. I don’t know Ave 5 but then most anything with Laurie is wonderful. As for Armando, big tick. One day, when I was still working, & home late, I opened the door to a series of hiccuping giggles  belonging to Thane, who at 13 had nicked my laptop & was watching The Thick Of It! I kn…[Read more]

    @winston @nerys Blenkinsopthebrave

    ooh, I’m intrigued by Avenue 5? It sounds like something that’s worth a watch. Should I plunge in?

    d’ol Puro ❤️

  • syzygy replied to the topic Dr Who News (5)

    @translatorcircuit

    mmmn. Are you high (& I know what that’s like so no judgement 😁😳)?  You seem, with respect, to be stating opinions labelled as True News.

    But look, it seems you’re either an actor or writer, as you stated you wouldn’t want to tackle either (for Who) as you’d likely know the outcome.👍 Which is fair reason. What are your fav…[Read more]

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Yes, the cast of the final Chibnall set of Who episodes was star studded -any more & it may’ve been unwieldy. Tegan & Ace weren’t characters I knew particularly well so I did  research & watched a few excerpts & scenes. It gave a nice boost to do that on Who’s 59th birthday.
    – speaking of Olivia Coleman, I was watching The Crown with Thane who wa…[Read more]

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Hey @winston

    agreed. I’ll benefit from a re-watch. I found the final episode (or film) a real tear jerker which is usually my litmus test for success.

    hellooo to all…

  • syzygy replied to the topic On The Sofa (10)

    Hallooo everyone!
    yes, us too: sad about Bernard Cribbins dying…(belated).

    @winston indeed, I also found the ep Rose a brilliant introduction to NuWho/After Gap.

    Neither did I have any idea the 9th Doctor was to regenerate into TenDoc.

    speaking of Tennant, I don’t think ABC Aus receives the TV shows from The BBC in quick time anymore but The…[Read more]
