Hello all. Just time for a quick one of these today - I just cut the Three Doctors commentary with Jack (out next week sometime) and I've been otherwise spending the day drawing up notes for my interview with Theodore Beale, which is an actual thing that's happening.

So, May. Wow there's a lot going on in May. Comics have Secret Wars, obviously, which is probably going to be very silly, but also Providence starting up over at Avatar, which is Alan Moore seemingly doing the From Hell of H.P. Lovecraft. Neal Stephenson's got a new book out, Seveneves, which is always exciting. And Jonathan Strange & Mr Norell spins up on the BBC, from Peter Harness and Toby Haynes. Possible I'll be doing episode-by-episode coverage of that, actually; more as this story develops. 

So, what are you looking forward to this month?

See you tomorrow with "Sons of the Harpy," and Monday with SimCity, Populous, and ActRaiser

Part of me wants to watch that interview but part of me can't stand to hear that man.

I don't think that analogy works given that Phil is too left wing to be the Doctor and too competent to be the Master... Phil's interview will probably be more akin to this http://halorvic.tumblr.com/post/87464655449/its-a-form-of-self-conditioning-you-fill-your

This month I am looking forward to the first new Faith No More album in 17 years.

Good luck with the interview. I would find it hard not to just get angry and rant at the guy.

I'm definitely interested in Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, partly because it looks great and partly because if it does well (and why wouldn't it?) the BBC might think "Wait, we've got this other fantasy thing based on a book sitting on the back-burner. Let's get Terry Pratchett's The Watch moving!"

My local science festival is next week, and parts of it look quite fun. No Big Name Lecturer to finish it off this year, though, which was a regular part of previous years. (I'm not sure it's even still being organised by the same people.)

I'm determined to finish a few episodes of an animated webseries I've been planning about an anthropomorphic alcoholic lizard who has a portal to hell underneath his sofa. I've missed my soft deadline for the first two parts due to illness (physical and mental) but there's a renewed vigour within me.
