Now I do watch some TV but prefer not to invest too much time in USA TV as something good, I either miss or it seems to get canned. For example, I liked Flash forward and that was canned and ended up with a stupid end. Revolution was ok, got iffy.
So care of Netflix, I’ve stumbled into:
The Tomorrow People (U.S. TV series)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about the 2013 revival. For the original show and all its revivals, see The Tomorrow People.
The Tomorrow People premiered on October 9, 2013. Originally aired Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/8:00 p.m. Central, but on March 17, 2014, it was moved to Mondays at 9:00 p.m. Eastern/8:00 p.m. Central.
On May 8, 2014, The CW canceled The Tomorrow People after one season.
Its been good, enjoyed it, and as you can see above its been canned.
The chance the sit and read outloud would have been fun this week, but sadly it was one of those weeks where the were not enough minutes in the hour, hours in the day and the days in the week. Covering my own work load, and then parts of the bosses job has been tough, but that should resolve it self shortly.
The image i suppose could also reflect the need of a diary or a to do list both of which have been used extensively. For todo and tracking I use something called toggl which is an online service which gives some reports.
Just one work item to complete and thats next weeks schedule. Otherwise, not playing.
Ive been pondering a replacement phone for a while, and finally a plunge has been taken. Its an LG G3 which is current but not cutting edge, and comes along with “all you can eat” data and texts and 600 minutes. In fairness, i suspect its overkill, but Three provided the cheapest overall cost. Vodafone was a close second, but price is kind here.
Last up is some ghost busting, or more precisely a bit of cleaning needs done and has needed to be done for a while. I may need to get up of my arse and do more.
Sadly, netflix is currently stopping me as i watch something called “the tomorrow people”
Lastly worth a reminder to you all, hot food and drink can burn and leave you with a sore throat!
I post all sorts of musical nonsense from time to time, and Spotify is the most used app on my phone, tv and home cinema! Like many people I fall back to a few CD’s and I revisited Train again last week, they are not the one.
If the mood is low, there is one person who can pick me up and make me sing along – satisfaction is guaranteed
Great documentary: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04xdrrb
Since the release of the Bat Out of Hell album, Meat Loaf has possessed the kind of international status that few artists obtain. His larger-than-life persona and performances are fuelled by a passion fortheatre and storytelling. This candid profile reveals the man and his music through his own testimony and from the accounts of those closest to him.
Meat Loaf’s life story is one of epic proportions – he survived a childhood of domestic violence only to face years of record company rejection before eventually finding global fame. Along the way he experienced bankruptcy, health scares, bust-ups and one of the greatest comebacks of all time. All this and more is explored in the film, which features behind-the-scenes footage of his recent Las Vegas residency, plus plans for a new album featuring songs by Jim Steinman.
The film also revisits the Dallas of Meat Loaf’s early years and includes insights from his high school friends, who reveal how Meat really got his famous moniker.
After his mother died, Meat Loaf fled Texas for the bright lights of LA. He sang in itinerant rock bands, but no-one would give him a recording contract. By 1969 he was broke and disillusioned. His break would take the form of a musical. He was offered a part in Hair, having been invited to audition whilst working as a parking attendant outside the theatre. Shortly afterwards he met Jim Steinman and the road to success really began. Yet the Hair gig was the beginning of an enduring love affair with theatre that is reflected in his singing persona today.
