My life is boring

So I haven’t updated my blog for a while, I really haven’t been up to much to warrant a blog post.

I am however going to attempt to make one.

Doctor Who

The TARDIS

The 11th Doctors TARDIS

So last week the Mid-Season finale of season 6 of Doctor who was aired on BBC One (A Good Man Goes to War).

Going into the episode I knew two things:

  1. We would find out who River Song is.
  2. The Doctor would rescue Amy Pond.
Also going into the episode I had, from previous episodes, expected:
  1. We would find out Who River Song had Killed.
    • In “Flesh and Stone” back in season 5 Farther Octavian stated that River Song was a prisoner because she killed a man; a good man.
    • River song had also stated that the man she murdered was the best man she’d ever known.
    • The Title “A Good Man Goes to War gave me the impression that we would find out who this is.
But this theory however was proven to be false.
We did find out who River song was and it was one of the theories that I have been working on since the start of the season. In “Day of the Moon” the second episode we see a picture of Amy holding a baby, presumably the baby that she had told The Doctor that she was pregnant with at the end of the previous episode “The impossible Astronaut” and that this baby is the Little Girl that was in the Space Suite. Then there was the fact that the Little Girl Regenerated at the end of the episode “Day of the Moon”. in the episode “The Doctors Wife” Idris/The TARDIS/Sexy told Rory just before she died the “The only water in the forest is the River” which was a clue to River songs Identity and only solidified my theory.  What confirmed my theory was the Name that Amy had given her child in “A Good Man Goes to War”, she had called he daughter Melody, Melody Pond.
Melody is also a Song and if the only water in the forest is a River than there is no word for Pond and that would mean that River song is Melody Pond and there for Amy and Rory’s Daughter.
This was a clever and well thought through plot feature, and I do have to congratulatory Steven Moffat on this. he kept us all guessing right up to the end and there are still elements to River/Molody’s life that we have yet to find out.

The End of June and Beginning of July

So I am going to watch Glee Live on the 26th of June at the O2. I have never been to the O2, but I am really looking forward to it.

On the 9th July I am going to London Film and Comic Con at Earls Court 2. I am also really looking forward to this as there are a number of Actors/Actresses that I would love to meet there from the many shows that I have enjoyed over the years.

 

Reading

I recently Finished reading  Stargate Atlantis: Book #10 Nightfall, By James Swallow. This was a really good book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have just started reading Stargate Atlantis: Book #17, Legacy Series book 2, The Lost, By Jo Graham & Amy Griswold. this is good so far but I am only a few chapters in.

I think that that is everything. I am going to sign off now.

Until next time, follow me on Twitter.

Good News/Bad News

Well I am not the luckiest of people but over the recent weeks that has seemed obvious but good things do happen every so often.

Signed 2009 Vancouver Stargate Convention Poster

Signed by Michel Shanks

Back in January I turned 20 and in the last post I mentioned that I got a new phone, one thing that I didn’t mention is that I got a Hand Signed poster from the 2009 Stargate Convention held in Vancouver in Canada, and it is signed by none other than Michel Shanks (Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1)

I need to get a Frame for it so that it wont get damaged and so that it can hang on my wall with the picture I got for Christmas.

Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming

Stargate Atlantis: Homecoming

Over the last few weeks I have been reading the first book in the Stargate Atlantis Legacy Series from Fandemonium. As it suggests it is set after the events of Season 5 episode 20 ‘Enemy at the Gate’ of Stargate Atlantis. There was a film planned to continue the story of Stargate Atlantis called ‘Stargate: Extinction’ but due to the financial trouble that MGM have been in it has been shelved Indefinitely, Hear is a link to the story over at GateWorld. This is a Great way to continue the show and I am really looking forward to the next book in the Series ‘The Lost’.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome has started filming in Vancouver which is good news and I am interested in where this show is going to go as it is following a teenage Bill ‘Husker’ Adama (Luke Pasqualino) on-board the Galactica and his commanding officer Coker Fasjovik (Ben Cotton). As it is filmed like Sanctuary, mostly on Green Screen, it is set to look good as they are using scans of the old Galactica set and modified them so that the ship looks Brand New rather than falling apart.

"You Are Hear."

In December I won a T-Shirt from @SyFy. As it was posted so close to Christmas and it was coming from New York I only got it at the beginning of the month. I have to say that it is worth the wait though as it is one of my new Favorite t-shirts. Its odd seeing as I have started to opt for Shirt and Ties more now.

In other news I have joined LoveFilm.com. I was thinking about joining for a while but I never had the time to do it but the other week they had people in the Pentagon in Chatham. They had a Deal going for 2 months for the price of one so I am paying £10 for 2 months worth of unlimited rentals which is pretty good I have to say.

Well I think that that is all for now, there will be more updates soon, I will make time to blog more often. So untill next time you can follow my antics on Twitter.

When Will They Learn?

As people know I am a Sci-Fi fan and due to this I have been taken in by some of the big franchises like Star Trek, Stargate and the Re-Imagined series of Battlestar Galactica.

I was taken with Battlestar as it was on after Stargate Atlantis on Sky One so naturally I started watching Caprica as it was a Prequel to the show. Only the 1st 9 episodes have been Broadcast in the UK and in the US they stopped at episode 13 but in Canada they only have 2 episodes left.

Now I have really enjoyed the 1st and now to be only season of Caprica, but I think that it could have gone further as it was only in its 1st year it was still finding its feet and they are trying to put too much into what is left of the season.

There is now another prequel to Battlestar called Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. This is a Sanctuary style show as it is mainly on Green Screen. as far as I know it is set 10 years into the first CYLON war and is following Bill “Husker” Adama on the Battlestar known as Galactica. in comparison to the flagship show, the ship is brand new and at the beginning of it’s life.

This show was originally set to be a Web series such as how Sanctuary started but due to the cancellation of Caprica it has been given the green light for a TV show. This is starting to look like how Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe was handled, as though it was once axed so that the other can start and it just seames so unfair.

Like with Stargate Universe I will be giving Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome a watch as it is part of the Mythology of the show BSG and shows the start of the story of the ship that the show is named after like BSG shows the end of the story of the ship.

Caprica Season 1.5 is set to start in the new year on Sky1, the last 5 episodes are on in a 5 hour Marathon on SyFy on the 4th of January in the US and the last 2 episodes are on Space in Canada on Tuesday 23rd and Tuesday 30th November.

Stargate Universe is on Tuesdays up until the 7th of December in the UK on Sky1, in the US it is on Tuesdays up until the 30th November and in Canada it is on Space on Fridays up until the 3rd of December (these dates are estimates and are subject to change)

What Colour is Rain?

It has been sometime since I last updated my blog, there is a reason for this, for the last two weeks I have been without the internet.

I am back now so I will update you all on my life over the last 20 odd days.

I have started listening to the Soundtracks for Battlestar Galactica, Caprica and Stargate Atlantis. I have always liked the music from these shows and in my opinion it is the soundtrack that makes the show. I have also started listening to the band “Embassy” (they are the ones that were used in the Promo for SGU).

At the start of February I started to hear back from the University’s I have applied for.

I have a conditional Place for Uni of Wales, Newport and I have to attend an interview in April for Staffordshire Uni.

I have also been invited to Newport to have a visit to the Uni next week (17th February) or at the start of March (3rd March), there is only one problem with this, I don’t have the money to get to Wales at this short notice, I only got the letter today (10/02/2010) so I don’t know what to do.

I have a friend, and his name is Paul and he is a complete idiot, the other day (05/02/2010) it was snowing and he came out with the question “What colour is the Rain?”, to which he was greeted with a great deal of laughter and he then went back to work, later on as we were leaving college he walked into a door that said “Pull” he tried to push it, and it turns out that it was the 5th time he had done that, that day, I feel really sorry for Paul but this had to be bloged about as it was the most interesting thing that happened.

That is pretty much what has happened to me over the 20 odd days and I will be blogging soon, I promise.

New Year, New Me

Hello there.

So it is now 2010 and this is my 1st blog post for this year.

Not much has happened so far for me but it is about to get a little bit manic as I go back to college tomorrow (04/01/2010) and I start 3 new units.

I am keeping with my Resolutions, hence this blog post. Yesterday I had a bit of a bike ride into Chatham and I cycled back (that was the killer). I may have a ride around tomorrow or I may have a walk.

I watched Avatar online last night and that is one hell of a good film, I had a small problem with it though as the Subtitles were in German and I have little knowledge of that language but I hope to change that, but I may have to pay to see it in the Cinema in 3D as it is that good.

Every Christmas I get a calender and for the last 3 years (2007/08/09) I have been Recycling them and using the Images as posters, here is the 2009 Callender and in the Mirror you can see some from 2007 and 2008:

Stargate Atlantis Calender 2009

I am Still trying to read Friends Like These by Danny Wallace but I have just not had the enthusiasm to read at the moment but I have been watching Season 5 of CSI:NY which I borrowed from the Library, and listening to the CDs I bought at Bluewater.

I have found that I have started to be come Nocturnal which is going to be fun for Monday as I have to be up early as I start at 09:30.

I am signing off now and i may Blog tomorrow but it is unlikley but I will post soon as it is a New Years Resolution.

Last Week and Updates

so last week I was on Half term and as normal I did nothing.

When I say nothing i mean nothing important or college related.

I did however watch quite a few DVD Box sets, I borrowed Stargate Atlantis season 5 and CSI:MIAMI season 6 Pt II from the library and I bought season 2 of Battlestar Galactica.

I finished watching these Sunday (01/11/2009) night.

On Saturday (31/10/2009) was Halloween and as usual Dad did a pumpkin but he tried something a bit different this year as he only took a little bit off of the surface and did not go all the way through and used LEDs to light it. I like it and it came out well.

I am Enjoying Sanctuary season 2 and SGU season 1 and each seem to be getting better and better.

I am saving my money up for the Stargate SG1 season 1-10 box set at the moment as this will mean that i have every episode and it will take up less room than having each volume will.

i am behind on the reviews, i still need to post 2 for SGU and 3/4 for Sanctuary but they should be up during the week.

That appears to be everything but as always stalk me on twitter where there are more regular updates.

Updating, updating, updating

Hello there everyone it has been a bit since I posted an update on this blog (other than a review) and I thought that I should.

First of all can I say a thank you to everyone that has visited my blog since the start of the month, I find it quite interesting as to how people have been finding me on the web. over the last couple of weeks it has been search terms relating to Stargate Universe like, “stargate universe destiny” and “stargate universe whiteboard” but amongst the best there was “stargate universe sex scene”, this is one of those things that i can’t make up i have had people here looking for “Photos of David Hewlett”, “red nose day”, “stargate ships comparison chart”, “pictures of Elyse Levesque” and there are lots of other so thank you and keep all of your different searches coming I like to see the weird ways that people arrive at my blog.

SG-U Stargate Universe

SG-U Stargate Universe

I have been enjoying the start of Stargate Universe and I am liking the new season of Sanctuary. I will be reviewing both of them on this blog, SGU is being done and I will be starting the sanctuary ones at the weekend and there will one for each part of “End of Nights”.

College has been going well over the last month, we have a boring tutor and one of our tutors has left due to stress (this is based on information i received this morning), we only have another few days left and then we are off for a week.

Lost seasons 1-3

Lost seasons 1-3

I have now got nearly all of Stargate SG1 on DVD, I am missing episodes 220 – Show and Tell, 917 – The Scourge, 918 – Arther’s Mantle, 919 – Crusade and 920 – Camelot (ptI) and I am missing season 10, I have now got seasons 1-3 of LOST and I have worked my way through them and I only have 2/3 of season 3 left to go.

I have been updating my website over the last couple of days and the changes are live here, also I changed the header to this blog.

Sanctyary Season 1 Boxset

Sanctuary Season 1 Boxset

Last week I managed to purchase sanctuary season 1 and one of the discs didn’t working properly, actually it was the 1st disc just after the 2nd episode so that was rather annoying but I took it back and they refunded the money and are going to hold another copy of it when it comes in again so I can’t really complain.

I think that is everything for now I am still using Twitter so follow me if you like.
