The Hogfather

Anyone that knows anything about me knows that my life revolves around the Discworld. I’ve been reading Terry Pratchett novels since I was a kid and own all his works. The Discworld is like a home to me, a perfect escape from my life.

So when Christmas rolls around there is only ever one book (and TV movie) I want to read (watch).

The Hogfather…

Good Omens Episode 1

If you didn’t know this very brilliant book, written by the very brilliant Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, has been made into a radio adaptation for Radio 4 this Christmas. Catch it on the radio OR on iPlayer.

If you haven’t read it I’d still think it would be a good idea for you to listen to it.

Starring Peter Serafinowicz as Crowley and Mark Heap as Aziraphale this is Good Omens…

Christmas Playlist Day 23

WE ARE SO CLOSE NOW! And to celebrate lets have some classics shall we?

First off, because I wouldn’t want to listen to much more then this song every Christmas day is Wizzard with “I Wish it could be Christmas Everyday” and then The Pogues with “Fairytale of New York”. Two classic songs that you’ve probably heard about twenty million times already this year. Listen at least the once more.

My One Piece Adventure : Punk Hazard

I take forever to do things but when I give myself a goal I do my best to do it! So my goal was to catch up before Christmas and as of writing this I am exactly 71 chapters away from doing so.

Never underestimate the ways of a lazy person!

A moan about Christmas TV

I think I possibly covered this in the Morecambe and Wise article but I thought I’d moan some more. I haven’t exactly been the most cheerful blogger this Christmas so it kind of goes with my theme.

Does anyone else think Christmas TV just sucks?!

I mean OK for people with families and that TV isn’t important but in some respects as I spend Christmas on my own it is just another day. And because we are lead to believe (at least here in the UK) that it is big event TV I guess I get disappointed with the same old same old.

The BBC especially.

The only thing in recent years I’ve looked forward to from them has been films and Doctor Who. I’m not interested in either the film or Doctor Who episode this year so TV land is looking uninviting completely. It seems to just have its juggernaut shows blasting out meaningless specials. But they are either so miserable and boring or else just same old same old with a Christmas hat and tree.

Then again I’m not even sure what it is I want from Christmas day, when I spent it with my family I never really bothered with the TV but for some reason I still THINK of things I did watch and think they are better then what I have now that my only company is probably going to be my TV.

There seems to be a big Family Friendly CHRISTMASY slot missing that has been filled up with either drama, adult comedies or a movie we all probably own on DVD and have seen to the death anyway.

I feel like we’re missing out.

But are we?

I don’t know.

I think I’ll stick to my DVDs.

My One Piece Adventure : End of Fishman Arc

This is going to be a very short and sweet blog. I don’t know why I didn’t just carry on reading but I think I was so worried that I’d already seen so much that I would focus too much on something completely different and ignore the rest of the arc.
