Yumm (not pictured, lots of toast)
No Time to Die (2021) 🍿
3/5 - For my first Bond film in years, it was pretty engaging. I imagine with all the context of the previous films, I would’ve enjoyed it more.
Finished my Goff Rocker. Pretty pleased with the result; still a few little touch-ups to do, but for my first Ork, I’m very happy, the skin is a lot of fun to highlight.
Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio (2022) 🍿
4/5 - A weird but good movie. It’s very different from any of the Disney ones and is better for it.
How to Train Your Dragon (2010) 🍿
Very good acoustics here
Desert Hearts (1985) 🍿
Finally got a chance to start painting my Goff Rocker. Ork skin is a lot of fun to paint. Still got a long way to go but not bad for an evening’s work.
Spotify wrapped time. Interesting mix; surprised by Green Day being so high.
Wish they generated a panel like this themselves rather than having to combine the screenshots myself.
Big Hero 6 (2014) 🍿
4/5 - Nice movie
Andor (Season 1) 📺
5/5 - Easily some of the best Star Wars produced
New post: Leaving the Twitter nest
A look back at some of the better tweets I’ve put out. Putting this together was a fun trip down memory lane.
Painting competition 2022 - Week 6:
After 4 weeks of no progress, thanks to Life™️, it felt good to finally make progress. Got most of the models primed and some base layers down. I’m going to miss the deadline for the competition, but I will see this project out.
The Greatest Showman (2017)🍿
2/5 - Disappointing. After listening, playing and enjoying the music for several years, the movie was a letdown.
Ratatouille (2007) 🍿
5/5 - A feel-good classic
Toy Story 4 (2019) 🍿
5/5 - What a beautiful movie. After avoiding it for fear of it just being another cash-grab sequel, I could not have been more wrong. The story is excellent and ends the saga well. The visuals are outstanding and far outshine anything I’ve seen recently.
Successful adult day: The integrated washing machine that came with my house died. One transplant operation later, and I got my old free-standing machine from my old place up and running. And I only sprayed a small bit of water over me; who knew that mains pressure was so high!
F Is for Family (Seasons 3, 4 & 5) 📺
4/5 - The show continues to improve. The last two seasons touch on much more serious subjects and the show really shines for it.
After many years of playing the trumpet, I’m giving the French horn a go. Ended up going to the Paxman music store and selecting this horn. While many of the techniques are similar, the difference in fingering positions and intonation makes me feel like a beginner all over again.
What We Do in the Shadows (2014) 🍿
4/5 - Enjoyed it, the dedication to the movie style is excellent
In & Out (1997) 🍿
3/5 - Chill watch
Painting competition 2022 - Week 2:
Made some good progress this weekend; 21 models are done. That still leaves a squad and the truck. Aiming to have all the models built and primed by next weekend, leaving me about 4 weeks to paint them.
F Is for Family (Seasons 1 & 2) 📺
3/5 - Pretty good so far, could be tempted to raise it to a 4, but some of the jokes feel a little cliché.
The Birdcage (1996) 🍿
2/5 - I have mixed feelings about this one. (Spoilers ahead). There are some lovely moments, but some of the main characters are awful people, and it’s never resolved. They get away with treating people poorly when they should know better (Val), and it’s frustrating they’re never really confronted for it. I guess you could argue that part of the social commentary, but it left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
