Anything post-appololypse cheers me up. Is that bad? I’ve spent most of today watching Survivors. Makes me happy. Even the sad bits.

There’s a British dub of the series of Life After People I should pick up too.

I guess the first thing I remember reading was¬†this. ¬†Dunno what happened to my copy, might’ve given it away when we moved, it might have just gotten lost over the years.

Tera’s Christmas present to me arrived. Shiny things and lots and lots of awesome nom nom nom sweets. Camera cable, how I have missed thee! Enough Salmiak stuff to last me a year! (Or, knowing me, a week)

It snowed a little overnight, went down to -2 degrees, 0 degrees during the day. Not as bad as Finland, which according to Google, was -20.

  • Ah, I remember watching survivors; must actually have been on broadcast TV! I thought it good, even though it seems to have been one of rather a lot of post-apocalyptic stuff in recent years. I’d like to see what S2 is like.

    Ah, snow … the kids next door tried throwing snowballs at me last night (with permission!) They were easily dodged..

  • Oh yes ..

    This “Life After People” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_After_People ?

    I caught an episode of this on TV earlier today. It was pretty interesting. It always makes me laugh how many stories/movies etc assume that things will still be intact and working thousands of years in the future. I’ve got a cpy of a 70s program, The Starlost. One bit has them loading stuff from a cassette tape type thing that’s been centuries in use! Most 70s tape based media, and drives, have *already* started deteriorating beyond usability!

  • Yeah. They did a full length documentary, then they did a whole series. But the American “Deep, Grating Movie Announcer Voice” and the redundancy that most American shows have just made the series unwatchable. They’d repeat “LIFE…. AFTER PEOPLE!” every 5 minutes and just keep going on about the same facts. I watched the documentary a couple of times and could live with it, but when I tried the series I gave up watching halfway through the first episode.

    Hoping the British dub solves a bit of that. Even if it just gets rid of the deep gravely voice.
