I treated myself to the digitally remastered boxed set of Carl Sagan's 'Cosmos'. That series blew my mind in the 80s when it came out. I got the book of the series and even 'The Music of Cosmos' album. But I haven't watched the series since that first time around.

It's even better than I remembered it! :D

I just watched Den skaldede frisør (All you need is love?? not Hugh Grant & Co., this one is with Pierce Brosnan, and the original title says "The bald hairdresser"), but it was fun (not the movie, even though it had its fun parts, and it was meant to be a romcom, but I found it really depressing), cause we finished at uni with my friend at half past 8, and it went like this:

Me: It's really cold.
She: Owww, yes! Brr...
Me: So what are you up to this evening?
She: Going straight home and into bed, sleeping.
Me: OK. Wanna catch a movie?
She: What's on?
Me: No idea.
She: Sure.

:D So we picked the first movie, it also was the only movie starting at 20:00, but it wasn't bad :)

Should that be bald rather than bold? :?

:D Patrick Stewart had a lot of "Baldly going" jokes made at him when he made TNG. ;)

We watched Priest this evening. It's a sort of dystopian future vampire meets cowboys meets warrior priests movie. The good points - it was only 90 minutes long and the bikes were pretty cool.

I quite liked that film, but when it came out it was only shown in 3D I did see somewhere there may be a sequel.

Do you know, I can not remember any part of that film, except a vampire at some point :lol:

Saw Skyfall, excellent film. Best poetry reading by far :lol:

Wow! Nice, enjoy.

To paraphrase a friend, Carl Sagan is an example of missing someone you didn't know.
