Re: Sci-Fi novel recommendations

I just read "We Are Legion (We Are Bob)" which was a lot of fun. A silicon valley type sells his software company and uses some of the money to register for a cryogenics programme and is immediately hit by a car. He wakes up a century later to find his mind has been uploaded into a computer and the ...

And, you have an "and" writing credit on the opening so, there's that. :D
I've not felt this proud since my "Thanks To" Credit on Apocalypse, CA! 8-)

I like how my name is on the thread so every time Lance drags this project towards the finish line with his teeth, I get to feel a sense of achievement.

Re: ITT Faldor becomes a Frenchman, Gets job on TV show...

Really glad you're finally getting settled in. So. Deep breath, wine, cheese, and bread. You (and your lovely) have earned it. Thanks man! Our local supermarket has three rows of camembert and just one selection of brie. Seconded! Dude, you just moved to another country AND succeeded. That puts you...

Re: So can watching TV and movies help someone's writing improve?

Stephen King might disagree - that a writer must read in order to know how to write (I'd post a link to where he said that, but I'm lazy). I'm pretty sure it's part of "On Writing". A lot of books about writing talk about how people should watch less television if they want to find more time to wri...

Re: ITT Faldor becomes a Frenchman, Gets job on TV show...

So, Last week I flew back to the UK and had a going away party, really nice to catch up with everyone and have a bit of a send off. Then the rest of the week was spent packing and cleaning the old place. Then we travelled back by train, with my PC in a suitcase. Now I'm back and totally exhausted bu...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

Hot Take: I liked Solo Was it the best Star Wars movie? No. But I can name at least three that are worse. Whilst it doesn't reinvent the wheel, it has fun with the universe. It was also nice to see it with my wife and my Sister and Brother-in-law as a last family outing before moving. I don't know w...

Re: ITT Faldor becomes a Frenchman, Gets job on TV show...

So, little update... The biggest change has just been getting used to working a 9-5 job for the first time in about 15 years. Which isn't helped by a lot of services like Banks not being open here on saturdays. But the hardest part is being away from my wife who has had a massive job on for the last...

Sorry, been crazy busy.

You would look great with no hair! I guess I'm slightly ahead in the Dennis Muren stakes! Who would even be the Dennis Muren of keygrips? Idiot. I'm lucky, the worst I've had is "I'm supervising the VFX" "Are you doing digital intermediate as well" "er... No." The show is a history documentary serie...

ITT Faldor becomes a Frenchman, Gets job on TV show...

So, as regular readers will be aware, around this time last year I quit my job to pursue freelancing in video full time and it has certainly had some rocky moments where jobs that were all set to go ahead don't materialise because a producer decided they didn't want an onset supervisor the night bef...

Re: The "I just watched a movie" thread

It is a good thing. I'd never heard of Tonya Harding but Mrs Faldor had, due to her interest in true crime. I thought we were sitting down to watch some ice skating biopic and suddenly it all goes a bit Big Lebowski!
