Films based on computer games and that! Sherlock starts tonight on BBC1, by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss off of the telly, based on the 80s computer game by Melbourne House. I remember it, it was set in the olden days and there was a detective in it. I'll probably be checking it out, but haven't there been enough films and telly with detectives set in the olden days? There was Life On Mars, The Sweeney, Dixon Of Dock Green, Z Cars, Inspector Morse - the list is not endless, there are a finite number of them. From what I remember of the game it will probably make a better telly series than, say, Space Invaders. Based mainly on what was there, that is. Space Invaders, if they did that they'd embellish it a lot, wouldn't they? Hopefully they've made it not involve so much messing up due to not working out the train times correctly, although I believe there are books for people who like that sort of thing, with detectives, set in the olden days, and not based on the computer games. Perhaps if the telly series goes well they could make some books based on Sherlock? With the funny hat. There was a funny hat. They've got to keep that.
Redditch, you are being obstinate! A couple of days ago I called for Redditch to stop trying to say it was interesting and go for the beautiful dullness market, but now I read that some Redditch footballers have been done for betting on matches. This is completely unsatisfactory - it's neither proper interesting or proper dull. Redditch, sort yourself out!
Blogger, you is so cheeky! I had an email from Blogger (i.e. Google), the service what hosts this, telling me "if you haven’t had a chance to check out our brand-new Template Designer, you’re really missing out." I'm happy with how it looks, thanks, Blogger - or are you meaning I'm missing out because I'm so pushed for time I haven't had the chance? Well, get this - you say I'm missing out if I haven't had the chance - you don't say I'm missing out if I had the chance and chose not to check it out! Yes, I win! "So go ahead and freshen up your template; your blog will thank you." Now you're being ridiculous, Blogger. It Is What It Is will not thank me for anything ever. Not unless I add some widget to make it do that, and if I did that then those thanks would hardly be of great value.
that's all from me for now
see you around
