I just liked the pattern in this one.


Totally random, but not if you look closely.

The most evil force in the universe?

Evil bastard Ewok

And I'm not talking about the Stormtrooper.

I feel old today (don't ask!).


But this is a lot older than I am so it's all good.

Less than inspired today due to lack of sleep last night so I'm going with the eye candy.

I like this shot, especially the blue/cooling filter.

As you may have guessed I am something of a film geek, especially when it comes to George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead.

Dawn of the Shelf

At the last count, I have about 15 different versions of the movie on VHS and DVD. It's kind of like my comfort movie (as Heinz Tomato Soup is a comfort food).

Anyway, I spotted this fantastic movie blog which is well worth a read as the writer actually visited the Monroeville Mall where the film was shot. Good times!

It's strange but this movie never ceases to amaze me as to how chilling and funny a zombie apocalypse could be. Romero's politics and vision of the end of civilisation as we know it is both poignant and resonant even by today' standards. Thirty years on and it still feels kind of timeless in its thematic content.

One from the archives, shot on film even.


Linda being the geeky librarian that she is, outside the NYC Public Library. The famous stone lions are out of shot.

I need to get outdoors as I am getting a little stir crazy.


Some blue skies would be nice.

Getting used to the anti depressants. My balance is a little off, still feeling a little up and down but it's strange. I certainly don't see this as a long term thing but for the short term it might just help. The nausea isn't great though.
