    Sandy Aftermath Day 11 Supplemental: NY Gov announced 90% of those affected had power restored. I'm just 'lucky' to be in the 10% failure.

    Sandy Aftermath Day 11 Supplemental: More bad news. My car has a flat tire. The only working vehicle, post storm in my family.

    It's election day. This will be the first time I'll be checking the election results via the radio since we still have no power.

    Sandy Aftermath Day 9 Supplemental: I voted! No power, heat, etc. Little net access, gas crisis, etc. Change of voting locale. I still voted.


    Sandy Aftermath Day 9 Supplemental: LIPA better shake their ass getting power restored. Tomorrow will be day 10 of this living hell.


    #Sandy Aftermath Day 9 Supplemental: I voted at the polls already. Now I'm voting for power, heat, reliable phones, and consistent net here!


    It's not the same experiencing election results on just a radio. Congrats to the winners. It's cold here. Still no heat. No power. #Sandy aftermath continues.

    Last tweet posted:-

    Sandy Aftermath Day 10: Each night colder than last. Need power and heat. I hate LIPA. Feels like I'm living in a 3rd world war zone.

    Sandy Aftermath Day 9:
    Coldest night so far. Near freezing. Still no power, heat, etc. My voting location changed from a fire house to a school.
  • Best Wishes to Louis after Hurricane Sandy   1 year 51 weeks ago
    Dave, if you can, please do me a favour. Day 7, still no power & flooded. 
    
    Not sure when I'll be up & running.
     
    Please if you can - tell Listenners that DW Podshock will return when I'm back in operation. 
    
    Very little net access now. 
    No timetable now. 
    
    (Thanks.)

    They have power here (Golden Reef Diner) Hot meal tonight. Though I suspect a bit of price gouging going on here.

    Sandy Aftermath Day 7: It was the coldest night since the storm. Still no power, heat, etc. At least I managed a few hours of continuous sleep though.

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 7 Supplemental: Hope. I finally saw a LIPA (power company) truck drive down my street. Tried to flag it down but it didn't stop.

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 7 Supplemental: There's a helicopter circling around my home now. I can't make out the markings on it. Not a news chopper.

  • Best Wishes to Louis after Hurricane Sandy   1 year 51 weeks ago

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 5 Supplemental: Reports of nearby towns having power restored had given me hope for mine. It proved to be false hope.

    Sandy Aftermath Day 6 Supplemental: I'm hoping we may get power restored today. Still flooded here with a pump, but no power for it.

    Sandy Aftermath Day 6 Supplemental: Still no power. Hand bailing continues. Huge trees blocking roads & utility lines need clearing.

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 6 Supplemental: Hose for pump is set to go. Hand bailing seems like an act of futility now. Need power for pump.

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 6 Supplemental: LIPA said that 700k customers will have their power restored by 11/4. I sure hope I'm among them.

  • Best Wishes to Louis after Hurricane Sandy   1 year 51 weeks ago

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 5: Still no power, heat, phones, etc. Very limited net connectivity. Still hand bailing water out.

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 5 Supplemental: Discovered cut near ankle. May had happened when I stumbled down the stairs Monday when place was flooding. Hope it doesn't get infected from the flood water.

    #Sandy Aftermath Day 5 Supplemental: I've seen National Guard vehicles on major roads in my area, but not around me. FEMA reps said to be in area.

    Louis via iPhone to Facebook:-

    Update #Sandy Aftermath Day 4 Supplemental: I went to a nearby town that has power restored. It felt like re-entering civilization. For a moment Sandy felt like only a bad dream… for a brief moment.

  • Best Wishes to Louis after Hurricane Sandy   1 year 51 weeks ago
    Update #Sandy Aftermath Day 4:
    Still no utilities & minimum connectivity. Lost my big colorful pond fish. No power to run filter. Pond water has been stagnant water for days and has filled with hurricane debris.
    Update #Sandy Aftermath Day 4 Supplemental: Tired. Still hand bailing water out. Tired. Local sewage facility had major failure. Tired.

  • PLANET OF GIANTS   1 year 52 weeks ago

    You know, until I bought the DVD I don't think I actually saw "Planet of Giants" before now.  Back in the early 1990's when my local PBS station decided to show all the Hartnell/Troughton episodes, I think I actually missed this one.  It was like watching it for the first time. Certainly it plays like a whodunnit but overall it was pretty easy to watch. Some of the Hartnell stories tend to drag for me.

    In some respects this is a pretty good story with the sets that have been increased in size.  I liked the little tender moment in Part One between the Doctor & Barbara where he apologized for being so rude. It kind of set the tone for later Doctors who expressed sincere concerns about the fate of their companions.

    Reading the info text it shows how old the show is when one of the actors is shown as being born in 1899. 

    I have to agree with Chase that the story has a sort of "Twilight Zone" feel.  This is one of those early stories that utilized the resources of its shoestring budget to their max and pulled off an above-average final product.

    Cultdom Special Edition: Cultdom Operator

    Special episode of Cultdom Collective hosted by Rand al’Thor.
    In mid-2009, Victor Surge posted images to the SomethingAwful forums of a tall and slender man haunting various individuals. All investigations were hushed.
    Some years earlier, college film student Alex Kralie abandons his student film, “Marble Hornets”, and disappears altogether.
    Later, Alex’s friend and fellow college film student Jay goes through the tapes left behind from the Marble Hornets film project, and begins uploading any strange footage to YouTube.
    On 23 November, 2010, Jay wakes up in a hotel room, with no memories of the past seven months of his life. There is only one other guest in the entire hotel, a young woman named Jessica.
    Since then other stories have cropped up around the Internet of lives devastated by a tall, slender, faceless figure in a businesssuit: Noah Maxwell, whose cousin Milo dies of a drug overdose, and soon Noah finds himself targetted by a “Mr. Slim” and a character known as the Observer; a group of friends who start up a prank fitness series featuring a friend dressing
    up as this entity which attracts the attention of the real thing; a young man in New Jersey who starts hearing strange noises in his house and learns of a former owner, Mark McComber, information that leads him and a friend to discovering a cult that worships a certain tall, faceless man.
    These are just some stories that have surfaced concerning an entity commonly known as the Slender Man.

  • Red Dwarf - series X   2 years 6 days ago

    After finding a do-it-yourself 'rejuvinating' shower kit (insert do-it-yourself or Ikea joke here) the foursome decide to put it together. But in basic Red Dwarf fashion they put it together incorrectly and are sent back in time.

    Now that they are back in 23 AD they have to make a lemon battery (it's like a potato battery) to power the remote for the shower so they can get back. However they meet someone special from that time - Jesus.

    When they get the remote working they accidentally bring Jesus back with him.

     

    Opinion:

    The idea seems like a good one but it doesn't quite ring true - at least to me. Maybe I got overexposed to the show because I had been playing old episodes of the show since the series returned. It's not a bad episode but it felt a little 'off'.

     

    I give it a 3 out of 5.

  • Red Dwarf - series X   2 years 1 week ago

    Basic synopsis:

    Lister celebrates "Father's Day" by sending himself Father's Day cards to himself since he is his own father (See the episode "Ourbourus" (season 7, episode 3) )

    Rimmer points out how bad a father he is because he left himself under a pool table in his past - abandoned. The drunken Lister solemnly realizes that Rimmer might be right, so when he wakes up he finds a video for him to play.

    The video Lister begins a regime of "tough-love" as suggested by the ship's dental-bot. The results of this is calamitous (in fact dangerous) and spurred on by the new ship's computer Pree (installed by Rimmer and Kryten).

     

    Running gag: "Chinese whispers"

     

    My opinion:

    Though not as light as the opening on the series it is still a good episode but the darker nature merits it a 3.5 out of 5.

  • Doctor Who: Podshock 280 - 'The Angels Take Manhattan' Reviewed   2 years 1 week ago

    On the BBC's website there is an epilogue of what happed with Brian after Amy and Rory were dragged back in time by the angels. It was written by Chris Chibnall and was originally in the story but it was never shot so the video link provided has mostly sketches and narration to tell the story, as Brian gets a letter from Rory in this short video "Doctor Who: P.S.."

     

    Here's the link:

  • Red Dwarf - series X   2 years 1 week ago

    What was missing from "Back to Earth" has come back - the cast seen re-energized and back to doing something enjoyable, and it shows in this episode. This series starts with the cast "back in from".

    I can't say much about this episode for fear of giving away too many spoilers, however this is a Rimer-centric episode and it focuses on his family relationships.

    The basic story is this:

    The crew of the ship find a derelict ship the "SS Trojan".  While examining the ship, Rimmer inadvertently brings a ship near, that carries one of his brothers (who also happens to also be a hologram), and with him comes a robotic simulant.

    Meanwhile Lister and Cat try to buy an automatic-stirrer from a shopping network and are on hold for almost  the entirety of the episode.

     

    Returning gags from previous series:

    Rimmer continues to fail his officer's exam.

    Rimmer's jealousy of his brothers causes him to do crazy things.

     

    Overall: A good episode. The show is back to it's basics and it feels like "Red Dwarf" again. On a scale of 0 to 5 - I give this episode a 4.
